8. 'The Americans': Moving In for the Kill
The Cold War spy thriller tightened the screws, with Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys as married Soviet agents, living undercover in the D.C. suburbs of 1982. The phenomenal second season had a phenomenal finale—a chase scene scored to Golden Earring's faux-metal, faux-new-wave, faux-everything classic "Twilight Zone." Somehow all the rapid-fire emotional and political betrayals come together, as the song screams out the riddle these spies desperately need to solve: "Where am I to go now that I've gone too far?" When the bullet hits the bone, indeed.
