Why would you predict she defects? I'd think the opposite based on the pilot.
Basically, this newer ep (2) reinforces it more for me. She loves her daughter and they discussed whether the kids would be alright if anything happened to them. It almost seems as if, somehow, the kids are aware, but the fact that they are sleeper agents would tend to cast doubt. They are travel agents. Maybe they have a plan in place with their kids, in case anything happens, and the kids truly don't know what they do. And playing hockey, you have to wonder...also, the FBI agent is still on to them...and he's good. One thing I didn't like was how they let the uncle go. Real Russian tradecraft would have made him, and the maid, and possibly her son, eventually disappear, probably by seemingly tragic but non-suspicious causes, such as a car wreck. I wouldn't be surprised if they re-visit the clock in future episodes, since it's obviously a high level intelligence source. But who knows?
I guess I've read too many Clancy novels.
