Archer is the adult animated sitcom that no one saw coming. Wonderfully blending James Bond-esque action with the smartest, quickest dialogue ever to outdo an auction barker, Archer has really made a place for itself as one of the best comedies on television. And while the comedy does present quite a bit of the bulk of the series, a huge part of its longevity is still its propensity to keep fans engaged with stakes and character relationships. And, knowing Archer, this series has plenty of character relationships. Between steaming hot cat suits and the classic, ruined wedding, Archerhas consistently kept its romances interesting. With Valentine's Day encroaching, this list will be looking at some of the best tries and dalliances seen in the secret agent, office comedy. Starting off this list that is less of a romance as much as it is a weakness and possibly even a trap for Cyril. Both characters have consistently come off relationships with Archer and Lana. Cheryl was an ex-lover of his who finds his dangerous attitude and outright contempt of her incredibly attractive.
Cyril was the ex-boyfriend of Lana who got the brunt end of an incredibly one-sided break up. Wanting to get their ex-lovers jealous as well as falling prey to Cyril's inner demons and Cheryl's always demons, the two have had a frequent and hilarious relationship across the series. In one of the series most heated episodes, Archer, Lana, and Cyril must stakeout for the infamous trafficker, Moreno, sneaking people across the Mexican-US However, as fate would have it, leading the illegal immigration troupe was a beautiful and sensually accented women. Being the impulsive romantic that he is, Archer immediately betrays his friends to help Moreno deliver people across the border, at one end entertaining the wondrous criminal and at the other making the entire process much more dangerous and complicated than it needed to be. This is an infamous one that must still be haunting Archer to this day. During his training days in ISIS, Archer befriended another cadet, Lucas, and the two would immediately connect.
The Dirty Truth on Manga
As an infamous party duo of the office, Archer and Lucas would often go on wild and crazy raids across the world, kissing as many girls as they were kicking butts. However, beneath those beer tinted memories was a stewing romance that Archer may have not acknowledged but meant the world to Lucas. Though the relationship wouldn't come into fruition, Lucas would reveal to Archer a deep secret that would drastically change how Archer sees bromances forever. One of the biggest running jokes and most complicated relationships in the series is between the eclectic "Doctor" Krieger and his hyper-realistic, holographic anime wife, Mitsuku Miyazumi. Supposedly real enough for the state to allow the two to be married, Mitsuku has tragically been left hanging by Krieger throughout the course of the series. Despite Mitsuku being a creation of his own hand, he basically just uses her for his own disgruntled boyfriend bit, always hilariously fighting with the digital girl despite being in total control of her. Like everything else about Krieger, this is a dark and mysterious relationship that constantly unfolds itself in newer and stranger ways as the series goes on.
39; offensive, hulking HR rep, Pam Poovey.
Lana and Cyril's relationship was a major plot point in the series when it first got rolling. Working off her break up with Archer, Lana Kane needed to sober herself from Archer's wild ways by dating someone that was his exact opposite. In comes Cyril Figgis, the timid accountant of ISIS who plays less of a threat across the show than the ants infesting the office. Though they were in a committed relationship, Lana would constantly be struggling with her true feelings for Archer, while Cyril would be left inept and even challenged at his blatant competition. There's was a relationship that was rocky from the start, but it did serve to add plenty of character to someone who really would've just been a boring office guy within any other show. While not exactly a long term, romantic engagement, the budding relationship between Archer and Pam would show true chemistry between them as well as a unique sexual experience for the man who has supposedly been through it all. After another drunken night, Archer recalls that he had the best sex of his life, only to be shocked to find that his partner was ISIS' offensive, hulking HR rep, Pam Poovey. Despite this, the two would have an interesting dalliance that would soon have the two being in constant contact with one another throughout the series, with Archer later even proclaiming that Pam is his best friend. In the lightest terms, the marriage between Malory Archer and Ron Cadillac is the most consistent relationship for most of the series.
Having been introduced in the premiere of Season 4 as the traumatic experience to famously turn Archer into Bob's Burgers Bob Belcher, the marriage between the two was a major plot element to give Archer plenty of step-daddy issues as the show went and Malory to have plenty of material to play as the bitter wife. Though they were relatively close at the start, their relationship would evolve as the two would get further apart, with the two even agreeing to an open marriage that more-or-less seems a little advantageous towards Ron. This relationship also gets bonus points for the fact that their voice actors, Jessica Walters and Ron Leibman, have actually been married in real life. While the progressively bitter marriage between Malory and Ron Cadillac has been good for a few yucks every now and then, it doesn't compare to the hilarious and deeper plot beats of Malory's secret relationship with KGB director, Nikolai Jakov. Their relationship was initially just a humorous vehicle for a Romeo-and-Juliet-esque hidden romance between American and Russian spies.
However, it would soon fuel deeper and more complicated plot threads as their relationship would grow and start affecting the business of either's organizations. Even better than that, Nikolai himself would spark a hilarious existential journey for Archer, when it's revealed that he may very well be Archer's father, sending Archer into one of this classic rampages to find out the truth. During his tirade in Russia to learn the truth about his father, Archer would come across a beautiful, Russian agent that has apparently been in love with him for a long time. The two would begin a sudden and rapidly growing relationship that would see the two already arranging a marriage. However, as fate would have it, Katya would die trying to save Archer when Barry attempted to ambush them during the wedding. This would only create even more interesting stories when Katya would return as a cyborg, begin a relationship with the Terminator ripoff that is Barry, and later return to earn back Archer's love, when he's in the midst of rekindling his relationship with Lana. On that note, the greatest and most storied romance across the series was doubtful between Sterling Archer and Lana Kane. Two of the best spies in the agency whose individual vices and talents perfectly meshed with one another, Archer and Lana were a true power couple in the espionage world. However, when Archer's classic vices came back and Lana started to become baby crazy, they would have a nasty break up that would fuel much of the series' ongoing storylines, such as Archer's quest to get her back, Lana's disintegrating tryst with Cyril Figgis, Lana's sudden pregnancy, and a cathartic rekindling that may have seen a tragic question mark towards the end of Archer PIIt's not the best or even the most healthy relationship, but it's a hilarious dynamic that has come to define the core of the series.
