So how is The Americans going to end? Best guesses with only 4 episodes left.

I think Philip will sacrifice himself to save Elizabeth. He will die, and she will live knowing he wanted out of the life but chose to save her.
She may make it back to Russia only to live alone: knowing the Cold War was lost. Her life of spying cost her everything.
Stan's going to be devasted. 50:50 chance Oleg makes it out alive.
Paige after her dad's death pretends she doesn't know anything about them being spies. Henry legitimately doesn't know.
Claudia survives to supervise other illegals.

Are Democrats Senate Chances In 2018 Overrated?

Nate Silver from 538 crunches the numbers:

“After Democrat Doug Jones won a stunning victory in Alabama’s special election for the U.S. Senate last month, lots of smart people whose work I read and follow, such as The New York Times’s Nate Cohn, declared that the battle for Senate control in 2018 was a “toss-up.” Prediction markets largely concur; after Jones’s win, the betting odds of Democrats taking over the Senate shot up to about 45 percent.

I think this might be premature. Winning in Alabama certainly makes the Democrats’ path easier: They could now gain control of the Senate by retaining all of their own seats, plus picking up the Republican held-seats in purplish Nevada and Arizona. But they’re probably still the underdogs.
Democrats face a really tough Senate map.”
