Season 1  "Mole Hunt"  1x1

Aired 9 years ago - Sep 17, 2009

Archer is in trouble with his Mother and the Comptroller because his expense account is way out of proportion to his actual expenses. So he creates the idea that a Mole has breached ISIS and he needs to get into the mainframe to hunt him down (so he can cover his tracks!). All this leads to a surprising ending.
