Similarly, Archie would be much lower on this list if he was based solely on the first season, as his pompous and holy attitude is exhausting. Although he is initially opposed to Catherine and her rule, once he understands where the power is heading, he completely changes his allegiance. Archie has secrets that no one can learn from him. His life before he became a holy man was filled, as he said, with sin and degenerate behavior. He quickly judges everyone and everyone in court and, like everyone in Russia, strives to get ahead. He manipulates Peter and the others with his hallucinogenic visions, which he believes are from God.
However, if you look at Archie’s character and role in the series as a whole, he is part of what makes The Great One worthy of its name. It’s sickeningly creepy, but in some ways it’s often somewhat amusing. We get a bit of context as to why he turned to the Lord, and it appears to be because he is addicted to sex and is somewhat kinky. Adding these layers to Archie makes him more human and creates a sense of understanding for the audience. It’s hard to be homosexual in Russia, especially in a romantic sense, not strictly sexually, and it’s hard to come to terms with that when you’re religious.
Archie does it in the second season and it’s fun for viewers to watch and his ratings go up.
