‘Archer’ Season Premiere ‘White Elephant’ Preview (Video)


The incredibly long wait is over! Tonight, we will finally get an all-new episode of the hilarious FX animated original series Archer. It has been almost a full year since we have had a new episode of Archer, so if you are anything like me, you are dying for tonight’s episode to start.

Much like any other episode of Archer, tonight’s episode is going to be full of twists and turns. Unfortunately, one of the members of the ISIS family is now going to make it out of tonight’s episode alive.

That’s right, ladies and gentlemen. According to the official synopsis for tonight’s episode, someone who has been with the ISIS crew since the very beginning is not going to make it out tonight.

In case you think I am kidding, here is a look at the official synopsis of tonight’s episode courtesy of FX.

Someone dies. Someone who has been with the ISIS crew from the beginning. And then things get crazy.”

Now, here is where we start taking guesses on who it is.

I am going to venture out on a limb and say that it is not any of the main characters. While I could be incredibly off base, and they could be looking to shake things up a bit, I don’t think it is going to be Archer, Malory, Pam, Cheryl, Lana, Cyril, Ray, or Krieger.

However, there are two people that stick out in my mind. Now, while I don’t want anyone from the series to go away (except for maybe Barry), but there are only two names that stick out in my mind; Brett and Woodhouse.

Brett would be the obvious choice. Brett is very much the “Kenny” of Archer. I have lost track of the amount of times that Brett has been “accidentally” shot by a member of the ISIS team, mostly Sterling Archer. I think we have all heard the phrase “God dammit, Archer!” more than anything else in the series.

It is entirely possible that he finally meets the bullet that kills him at some point in tonight’s episode.

On the other hand, it could also be Archer’s faithful servant Woodhouse. While there is no real “reason” for his departure, he is in fact really old, and there is a possibility that he either passes on from natural causes, or he gets caught in the crossfire trying to protect Archer from one of the million and a half people who want  the infamous “Duchess” dead.

Who will it be who meets their demise in tonight’s episode? We will all have to watch and find out.

In the meantime, here is a look at a promo for tonight’s return of Archer. The clip is entitled “Gun Safety.” How appropriate.

 

Archer airs on Monday nights at 10:00 p.m. on FX.
