Archer - The Anglerfish Stratagem

Archer returns for its fourteenth season with a fun season premiere sending Archer (H. Jon Benjamin), Ray (Adam Reed), and Pam (Amber Nash) to Paris to assist with an Interpol case to take down an organization of jewel thieves known as the Vanguard. Archer is immediately suspicious of Zara Khan (Natalie Dew) whose methods of using them to help perform two robberies of her own lead him to believe she will no doubt turn on them given the first opportunity. Let's just say he's had worse hunches.

With half the cast having fun in Paris, the episode's other plotline involves trouble at the Agency when a dead body is found in Lana's (Aisha Tyler) office only moments after her new transparency initiative. The office storyline doesn't get as crazy as the setup suggests it might, and deescalates fairly easily. Meanwhile, Archer and his friends overseas manage to survive Zara's half-truths only to find themselves at the mercy of the Vanguard as the season premiere comes to close.
