    Archer delivered a particularly strong episode that delivered in terms of laughs as well as in getting back to the love triangle between Barry, Katya, and him. Katya asks him to held Barry build a rocket to get off of the space station. Archer plots to frame Barry for cheating on her to win Katya back and produces a horribly taped (laughably so) and edited together bit of conversation between Krieger (who is helping Barry in the promise of seeing a robot fight) and Barry on live chat. Seeing Lana and Cyril get back together sort of was a little odd but nice because it was one of the season 1 things that worked so well. And Archer's total forgetfulness of "proving himself" to Lana was a nicely done too as well as his new thing of tormenting people who called him by just letting it ring. But Barry gets down the Earth, Katya knows that Archer is trying to dupe her and admits to manipulating him. But this episode had a very fast pace to it that made the jokes seem even better since they kept piling up on one another. A very solid Valentine's Day episode of our favorite politically incorrect spy show that's animated.
