The Slap Season 1 Episode 3 “Anouk” airs Thursday, February 26 at 8pm on NBC. In the episode, the slap has caused a rift in Anouk’s friendship with Rosie, in the midst of attempting to balance her television show, ailing mother, and her much younger boyfriend, Anouk discovers she’s pregnant.

Show Summary: This high-octane thriller revolves around the O’Connor family and their son, Alex (Gavin Stenhouse), a young idealistic CIA analyst specializing in Russian affairs. Unbeknownst to him, both of his parents and his sister are part of a dormant Russian sleeper cell that has just been reactivated.

Years ago, Russian-born Katya (Hope Davis) was tasked by the KGB to recruit American businessman Mark O’Connor (Scott Cohen) as a spy, and the two fell in love. A deal was struck: As long as Katya remained an asset for Russia, she would be allowed to marry Mark and move to America. After years in America building a happy life and without word from Moscow, they thought they had escaped. Now it seems that the new Mother Russia has one more mission — turning Alex into a spy. The SVR has re-enlisted the entire family into service as they plan a terrorist operation inside the U.S. border that will bring America to its knees. For these anguished parents, the choice is clear: betray their country… or risk their family.

The series also stars Margarita Levieva (Natalie O’Connor), Morgan Spector (Victor Dobrynin), Kenneth Choi (Sam Luttrell), and Alex Peters (Sarah O’Connor).
