Episode Summary

EDIT

In this memorable season premier, Archer is now an ordinary citizen by the name of Bob. With his new wife Linda and their three step-children, Archer has removed himself from ISIS and the fast-paced world of international espionage and relocated to a small seaside town where he is now the proprietor of a humble burger joint. Archer is also the victim of a form of amnesia, which he becomes painfully aware of when a trio of KGB agents try to eliminate him. Shaken and confused, Archer checks himself into a spa in hopes of clearing his mind and getting a grasp about his true identity.
