The Archer Plot, Courtesy of FXX:

Archer is an animated, half-hour comedy that, in its 11th season, follows Sterling Archer and his return to the spy world after a three-year coma. While many things changed during his absence, Archer is confident it will take just a little time for him to reset things back to the old ways. The problem: does the rest of the team want that?

Season 11 episode seven, “Caught Napping,” airs October 21st at 10pm and was written by Mark Ganek.
