SynopsisEdit

Archer visits Dreamland and receives a big break that leads him to Woodhouse's killer. [1]

PlotEdit

Following Trexler's revelation that Mother killed Woodhouse, Archer returns to Dreamland and holds everyone at gunpoint. After some bickering, Barry returns to Krieger to receive his injections, and attacks Archer upon discovering him there. Barry reveals he's the one who killed Woodhouse during the ensuing battle. Krieger pleads with Barry not to become a killing machine, and when he ultimately refuses, is killed by Krieger's cybernetic Nazi dogs. Following Barry's death, Carol throws a chair, angering the dogs. Zirch brutally murders both of the dogs, leaving Krieger in tears. As Figgis and Poovey attempt to make off with the ransom, Archer accidentally reveals Lana is a government agent, prompting Mother to hold her at gunpoint. Mother first accidentally shoots Lana, before Poovey shoots her an additional seven times due to incompetency. Lana dies in Archer's arms, as he discovers the ransom money was in fact a bag full of incest magazines. Disheveled, Archer simply leaves Dreamland and places a baggie of heroin and a stone on Woodhouse's grave the following day.

Poovey returns home and finds the front door ajar, before making way to the kitchen where she finds a note from her Chinese roommates, thanking Poovey for all that was done and saying that they must leave for unknown reasons. Poovey collapses onto a chair and begins sobbing inconsolably.

Running GagsEdit

  • "I guess just pout."

ContinuityEdit

  • Reality (Non-Dream):
    • None
  • Dream/Reality Crossover:
    • Archer mentioning that it's impossible for someone to survive getting shot 7 times, which is what happened to him in the real world and the reason for his dream world. However, Lana was only shot 6 times.
  • Dream (Non-Reality):
    • None

TriviaEdit

  • Title Explained: "Auflösung", is a German word which translates to "resolution" in English, which is obviously referencing the resolution of the season long Dreamland story arc.[2]
