The world is messy in these trailers for The Americans’ fifth season

In the first full trailer for the upcoming season of The Americans, Paige moans: “The world seems so messy right now.” That feels like a universal statement these days, but, of course, it also applies to this character’s intensely specific situation. After all, she’s still dealing with the knowledge that her parents are Russian spies as she smooches on a boy who happens to be the son of an FBI agent. But at least she’ll be able to throw a damn good punch: Her skilled mama is teaching her. Paige’s training sessions with her non-nonsense mom are also highlighted in another teaser—though in that first one it shows how at some point she adopts an action-heroine tank top.

The last is just a brief glimpse of Elizabeth and Philip sharing a tender moment in bed.

The fifth season premieres March 7.
