** Lana doesn't seem to really consider Archer AJ's father, even though they're dating and Archer supplied the sperm to make AJ. It's still very much all her choices when it comes to how to raise her daughter. Archer raises some very good points about the difficulties AJ might face in that environment, but Lana isn't really the kind to back down in that kind of situation. Plus, Lana may well look at it as admitting defeat, accepting that her daughter "isn't good enough" for these kinds of institutions. Which Lana ''definitely'' wouldn't stand for.

** Or that Archer just found it [[YouKeepUsingThatWord inconceivable]] that Lana would want his sperm, but not via "[[UnusualEuphamism direct deposit.]]"

** Mallory's probably scary enough Cyril never worked up the nerve to kick her to the curb or throw her in the dungeon, and may have been worried about about Mallory and Archer working together to escape and foil things for him. Plus, it's implied she's giving him useful tips on how to successfully run his new government. As for Juliana. . . did you ''see'' her? Who wouldn't want to tap that!?

* Lana ignores Archer's warnings about boarding school and chooses to enroll AJ in one. Even though a) it's been made very clear how horrible it was for him growing up, b) Archer must have some rights as a father, and would be enrolling AJ behind his back, and c) AJ's biracial, which would likely make her a pretty good target for bullying in an extremely elitist and cruel environment. I get Lana wanting AJ to ave a good future, but there was a whole episode on why this was bad for her daughter.

** It's possible only the leader knew what she looked like, and for some reason never saw it pertinent to tell the others; all they needed to know was her name and where to find her, and it would be obvious who their target was. (Granted, they could have kidnapped some random woman at any point, especially if Cheryl didn't actually show up.) Naturally, their stupidity and lack of communication were their downfall.


Added DiffLines:

** Cecil's proven throughout the episode that he's not as savvy as he thinks he is.

** That's assuming 'gone to Mexico' wasn't a cover story Archer cooked up to avoid telling Woodhouse that Dickie'd died after their Vegas trip.

* In "Sea Tunt", wasn't it a bad idea for Cecil to take voice ''and'' video recordings of the ISIS crew when questioning them about Cheryl's (in)sanity? Both Sterling and Mallory were drinking insane amounts of alcohol, Pam was gorging herself on food she freely admitted to being allergic to and everyone else was either bitchy (Lana) or just goofy (Cyril and Ray). Wouldn't the "testimony" (which it was later pointed out that he could have gotten at a law office) have been demonstrably questionable given the fact that Cheryl's coworkers were not exactly behaving all that sanely themselves? If Cecil had the tapes significantly edited to conceal all this bizarre behavior, that would have just made the testimony look falsified. For that matter, wouldn't Cecil's own finances have ended up under scrutiny, thus revealing his true motive?

** It may be his narcissism that kept him from figuring it out! Since he thinks he is made of awesome, it would seem strange to him that Lana would not be ''boasting'' that she was carrying his child if he was the father!

** It's possible he had, since it was during his cancer episode, and he may not have been all there when he had his sperm frozen. Which also, to me, suggests that he didn't so much donate it as have it kept in the hospital in case the worst happened. When the worst didn't happen, he just sort of forgot about it, and when Lana said it was a donor probably figured she went to a clinic or something.
