So, cops don't actually fall for the "We're the real hostages!" shtick, right? They round up anyone fleeing from the scene until it all gets sorted out? I hope?

Anyway, good episode with plenty of good character moments and laugh lines.

Suck it, Bechdel test.

Hooray for Pam, kicking ass and taking names disguises.

I laughed out loud so many times. Starting with the strings playing suspense music right after the opening. Also at Bechdel Test. Also at Claryl powdering her face white.

This episode featured the vocal stylings of BOTH J. Jonah Jameson and J. Peterman, which delighted me immensely.

So - do you think those two guys are even real cops?

Now that is an excellent question which had not occurred to me.

The A.V. Club reviewer also has his doubts: Dietrich and Harris: CIA? KGB? Actors, researching a role? Because they really don’t seem like cops.

I feel like nothing really happened? Kind of curious why they made this a two-parter, since there wasn't a whole lot to say. (And yes, I know there was an episode where everyone's stuck in an elevator the whole time, but this felt really empty.)

Isn't pretty much everyone in the Archerverse either bad at their job or jaded about it?

I was disappointed when he didn't say I'M NOT THE SUPERVISOR when the chief popped by.

But, yeah. Nothing here for a two episode story, other than it might have felt a bit too cramped (sorry, clumped) in one.

I think this was two episodes for no other reason than to let the disguised team members be its own arc. I didn't mind; it didn't feel stretched out to me and I feel like it would have been rushed in one.

Getting to see Pam really do some brawling was nice.
