Double TroubleHeart of Archness: Part II

"Heart of Archness: Part I" is the first episode of the third season of Archer. On FX, it was billed as part of the "3-Week Special Edition."


Archer has been missing for three months. Ever since the death of his fiance, Katya Kazanova, at the hands of Barry Dylan, he has been grieving in his own way, which apparently means tending a bar and sleeping with newlyweds on a fictional island in French Polynesia. Malory sends Rip Riley (voiced by Patrick Warburton), a former ISIS agent, to find and retrieve Archer. Rip finds Archer with ease, but bringing him back to New York is more complicated when you add the antics of Archer and a crew of Pirates.


  • The episode number is hidden within this episode as the call numbers for Rip Riley's Seaplane.
  • The nautical flags behind the Pirate King at the dinner scene spell out "katie sucks"
  • The title Heart of Archness is a reference to Joseph Conrad's "Heart of Darkness", which describes a journey in search of a European trader who has gone mad and set himself up as a god-king to a group African natives.
  • Archer's "Omicron Spymaster" wristwatch is likely a reference to the Omega Seamaster wristwatch, featured in the James Bond film "GoldenEye". Not only are their names similar, but both function as spy gadgets, with Archer's having a garrote, knockout gas, and a laser (at least he's pretty sure) and Bonds' having a laser and remote detonator.
