Storyline

Oscar winning actress, Rona Thorne, is taking on the CIA and the KGB in Deitrich Viener's new movie thriller, "Disavowed!" Since Rona wants her performance to be amazing, Rona wants to train not only with ISIS, but with Lana Kane. Rona says she is SO inspired by Lana, the epitome of an empowered woman! Lana hesitates about sharing highly classified covert ops with anyone outside the agency, but when Archer offers his services, Lana immediately agrees to work with Rona. Meanwhile, Malory takes advantage of the access to Rona's Hollywood agent and Cyril; this results in a taut, sexy thriller-sequel to "Mandingo." Pam borrows something from Rona and tells Cheryl and Ray. It is an "Operation Dick Sledge," flashback at Rona's apartment; Steele and Cassius find their own Pinch Two and experience jungle fever at ISIS. Surprisingly, absolutely no one but Archer and the computer nerds seem to be paying attention to current events; Archer is the only one who is not totally starstruck. Will it ...

Cheryl: No, we're not. Say the right stuff and they just send you to a mental hospital for ten months.
Ray Gillette: ...I just this second realized why you do macrame instead of knitting.
Cheryl: Yeah, no sharp objects on the ward. They were super strict about that.

I Wish I Could Shoot Her Myself
20 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

A hot young (sickening) movie star comes to ISIS to shadow a secret agent so she can be successful in her next role. This leads to a tussle between Lana and Archer, trying to outdo each other and become the mentor This woman has the whole valley girl thing to a tee and becomes sickening to everyone. Meanwhile, Mallory enlists Cyril to help her write a screenplay and in the process they become all hot and bothered. I don't know. While there are some clever lines, it seems that at times episodes don't seem to work very well. Eventually, we are in for a surprise. There is also some silly byplay among the office participants when they get hold of the ingenue's diary. They end up in her penthouse, getting into all kinds of trouble.
