Archer cannot hear Lana over the sound of his deafening awesomeness; but, because Cyril cannot perform under pressure, he is rudely vanquished at darts. The Salad is not rendered unto Caesar and the gang is disgusted with Cyril. Despondent and dumped by his friends, Cyril makes some new acquaintances and gets into a little trouble. The next morning, the computer system at ISIS has a worm...or a pirate, causing the mainframe to think Russia is launching missiles at the U.S. With the ISIS agent cover list about to disseminate and Krieger unable to fix the computer system, things look dire. Choices do have consequences and Cyril is forced to learn who his friends really are (sort of) as poor Krieger is bereaved and then, back in the dating market. Archer is the Emily Post of weaponry: Archer knows it is polite to ask one's host for a katana. Will Cyril learn to shoot a gun straight? Are the twins really warming up to Archer? It's Hello, Kitty! meets Hunch, hunch! What, what? for the gang... Written by LA-Lawyer
