.. are really getting much closer?

4. Stan is no longer the man: Feeling guilty about Nina's fate and distraught over the dissolution of his marriage, Stan is in a bit of a tailspin. At least he has one constant in his life: Philip. Desperate to get Sandra back, Stan starts attending EST therapy sessions that were all the rage in the '80s with Philip. "I think with the loss of the Nina relationship, Stan had time to re-inventory his life and realize it had been falling apart from under him," Emmerich says. "I think there's an authentic affection there between [Stan and Philip]. A lot of the plot and story didn't support it [in the first two seasons]. Fortunately in Season 3, it's organically inherent in stories they're telling for Stan and Philip to come together socially and interestingly, hopefully, for the audience. They do have a real friendship that's building."

Uhm,... yyyyesssss??????? (I'm cautiously optimistic about liking season 3 better than the other 2. Still, not getting too enthusiastic. Remember: Seeing is believing.

Personally. I thought that there was something 'interesting' going on between Philip/Stan from the 1st episode. Not necessarily romantic/sexual, but I wondered if Stan knew/suspected something and was getting closer to Philip for more info.

Then came the scene at the hotel, when Stan showed up, while Philip was wearing just a towel... and Matthew Rhys saying something along the lines of "Stan and Philip should go on a fishing-trip together."

So, it's not entirely out of the blue and I don't believe it would happen, but I find Philip/Stan (as KGBvsFBI) more interesting than P/E.
