Is it honor before reason or somehting else?
- Honor Before Reason - Troy took Archer's baby boy from him; he owes the terrorist nothing. And yet he protected Troy's illegitimate little boy under a hail of police gunfire as if he were his own, and even adopted him and loved him as if he were his own; in spite of being the son of his son's murderer.
- Because Archer would be no better than Troy if he did otherwise. The point is less that Archer owes it to Troy, and more that Archer is the better man.
- The fact that the kid reminds him of his own dead son probably helped.
