Kreiger's Rush-themed van mural returns to FX's Archer

One of the recurring themes on FX's animated sitcom Archer, is how Krieger's van mural is periodically updated with with some kind of Rush album-themed design, with 5 different Rush van murals on the show to date. During the season 3 finale Space Race: Part 2 the van was given a Caress of Steel-themed mural with the lettering reading Caress of Krieger (screenshot here). On the finale of season 2 the van had an Exit ... Stage Left-inspired mural which read Exit ... Van Left (screenshot here), and earlier in season 3 the mural had been updated to a Rush Hemispheres theme (screenshot here). The 4th Rush-themed mural appearance occurred back in 2013 (Season 4, Episode 2 - The Wind Cries Mary) when the van's mural was updated with a Fly By Night theme, showing the familiar album cover with the title as Van By Night and the owl's face replaced with an image of Krieger's face (screenshot here). Season 5 went by without any updated van mural, but it has returned for Season 6. In Episode 8 of Season 6 (The Kanes) which aired last night, Kreiger's van mural has a theme based on Rush's debut album, where it depicts the word Van using the Rush explosion font as seen here (thanks Stephen A).
