sometimes i get sad and then i remember alec lightwood killing azazel in only one shot with his bow after being knocked off his feet and literally soaring through the air with his hair flying around his face. and all of it’s in slow motion.
Thank you, Red Templar News. This is Red Templar Archer reporting here at Emprise du Lion. As you can see behind me, things are going just as planned. We’ve had a few issues with some troublemakers, but I hear they’re being dealt with in, from what I’m told, a painfully slow amount of time with emphasis on “painfully”. That’s all we have to report. Back to you, Imshael.
Okay so, before I say anything, MAJOR SPOILERS HERE FOR ANYBODY WHO HASN’T SEEN TONIGHT’S EPISODE OF ARCHER!!
Can I just say…that tonight was the BEST EPISODE I have seen in the entire series of Archer?! Seriously, everything I had been hoping for happened in this episode! As someone who has been rooting for Lana and Archer since day 1, this whole episode was perfect for me! It’s very rare that a show delivers on everything that fans want to see.
We got to see just how much Archer loves and cares for Lana shown at how worried was for her, how supportive he was through her labor and how helpless he felt when he couldn’t do more. I really how to give props to him. Throughout this season, we saw how serious he took the whole pregnancy, so much so that he read up on all the possible complications, studied lamaze and even got certified as a doula. He didn’t want anything to go wrong.
Yeah, Archer is a mess. He’s selfish and immature and bit of an idiot. And don’t even get me started relationship wise. He’s horrible at them. But when it comes to things that matter the most to him, in this case Lana, he doesn’t mess around.
Now, we ALL knew that the baby was his. Let’s not pretend that it was really a big surprise. Although I got to say that the reveal was cleverly executed to say the least. It wasn’t done half-assed or just shoe-horned in for the sake that the fans wanted it. There was some actual backstory to it. So kudos to you, writers!
Back to Archer, I can’t gush about this episode enough. It was just so good! Like I said, everything that I had been hoping for finally happened, and if the series were to end here, I would be more than happy.
So now that he and Lana have a baby together, I can’t wait until to see where their relationship goes from here. I’m not expecting marriage (atleast anything soon), but it’s going to very interesting seeing these two trying to work together as parents.
Ah what the hell, I’ll just say it - Welcome to the world Abbiejean Archer!!
