Archer gets a bo-bo from Nikolai Jakov's Huns, but no sympathy from his mother. Malory's frustrations cannot be satisfied with lock factory equipment. A hedge fund is really a Ponzi scheme. Cheryl is the big mouth who spreads the word: Malory is selling out to ODIN, in more ways than one! Has Len Trexler finally won his lady love? Archer does not want a new boss or father. Barry tells Lana the sale could give her an opportunity for advancement, but only if Lana will advance horizontally, as well. Malory and Lana look out for their own asses, so Archer steps up to lead those remaining. (Phrasing! Boom!) The gang crowd-sources a plan to save ISIS. Can Len Trexler be induced into a change of heart? Krieger mentions the deep-cycle marine battery and his patented breath strips, and Archer has a revelation about anatomy. A plan is born and bare hands get dirty. A tiny microchip and Krieger's magic, might make it possible to alter... change Len's mind. What goes on in the mainframe may not..... Written by LA-Lawyer

Will They Ever Get the Carpet Clean?
17 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

ISIS is going broke and Mallory makes a deal with her lover, the head of ODIN. She lost all her money in a Ponzi scheme. They are to take care of business and then head off for all kinds of tourist sites. Archer and the gang realize they must do something or it may be too late for them. Lana immediately turns on them because she has been promised a high position in the new company. Anyway, there is use of LSD and a method of brainwashing right out of Kubrick's "A Clockork Orange." There is the obligatory vomiting again and all the Oedipal stuff with Archer and his mother. A typical episode with enough stereotyping to get us all by.
