Rush reference on season 2 finale of FX's Archer
10:19AM EST | comments |

In my Friday updates post last week I'd mentioned that there was a Rush reference on the latest episode of FX's Archer. It seems as though several folks missed it since I'm continuing to receive emails about it. There's also more to the reference than I had initially described, so I thought I'd put up a separate post with all the details. The reference occurred in episode 13 of season 2 - Double Trouble - which was the season finale and aired last Thursday, April 21st. Here's the official episode synopsis:

Krieger works to finish a top-secret project, and Archer brings a mysterious former KGB agent named Katya Kazanova home to meet Malory, unaware that Barry Dillon is heading his way to kill him.

Early in the episode Dr. Krieger is trying to impress Katya and mentions listening to Rush's Red Barchetta through his awesome van's stereo system and says to Katya, Please tell me you like Rush. Later in the episode we get a look at the actual van when the ISIS group pulls up in it. The van has a huge mural painted on the side which says Exit ... Van Left and depicts Doctor Kreiger peeking behind the curtain to a stage, mimicking the cover of Rush's Exit ... Stage Left (see the screenshot here). You can watch the episode's trailer here. The full episode is not yet online but should be in the near future.
