I am disappointed by the death, why even show the storyline in Russia if they were just gonna kill her.
So did you like nina?
did you want a happy ending for her?
I always liked nina for 3 reasons, 1. she is eye candy, I like looking at her 2. her acting is very good, I always feel like I am seeing nina, not someone playing nina. 3.her character was basically a sweet girl and good person who worked for cold and evil people.
I dont know why writers did this, maybe it was just for shock value, and to show how low the russians were at that time.
They showed her story so you would be hoping she gets out of trouble, and then boom they kill her!
I think the dad when his son wanted to talk to her, decided to just have her killed to avoid any chance his son might be linked with her.

wow now that was a shocking death! So cold and realistic ! And in real life it would be such a waste.
It will be carried out shortly,......pow !
I wonder if the guy who was supposed to help her , did the opposite to protect his son??
I've started to watch season 4 now from episode 2 on (I watched ep 1 already in March, but stopped then because of too little time). Might be a better show for binge watching anyways ...
But yeah, Nina's execution was absolutely brutal and shocking ... just extinguished like some bug ... I just thought about how many countless lives were and still are wasted like that all the time in human history on all sides ... what an utter madness of our so-called "humanity" ...
