'Archer' 2.02 'A Going Concern' Review

This week's Archer begins with our hero confronting Malory about the mind-control chip implanted in his brain last season by the Russians. "You think he wanted to mind-control you into loving him?" she asks. "You tell me, that's your specialty," he retorts. In the heat of their argument, she tells him that she's selling ISIS to ODIN now that she's broke thanks to a Ponzi scheme. Oh, snap.

It comes out quickly that ODIN is interested in buying ISIS only because Len Trexler (Jeffrey Tambor) wants to sleep with Malory.
