Archer has made and remade themselves countless times in the last couple of seasons. They don’t hold back when it comes to placing their characters in compromising positions. This week’s episode was the conclusion of “Drastic Voyage,” and to make a long story short, it didn’t end well for the ISIS gang. Sterling went off on a self-indulgent rampage, Ray got crippled again, and Lana didn’t get the support she needed from Sterling, or Malory, as a new mother but just when the show looked like it might fall into familiar ground, we caught a glimpse of what might be another complete reboot like last season’s Archer: Vice.
I admit. I got lulled into a false sense of here-we-go-again, and then everything turns upside down. The gang’s out of options and they turn to Archer for wisdom—never a good idea—and he says that he has some ideas. What a cliffhanger. I can’t wait to see what cockamamie plan—or plans—Sterling comes up with for next season. Just when Archer started to show some wear, it proved it still has legs.
A great twist ending leaves me hungry for the next season of Archer.
