More Evil Vulcan Syndrome! Really this series does their best to make the whole Vulcan race unlikable to the point it's hard to believe Spock came from them. Classic victim blaming here, and Archer seems to have caught EVS for this one episode the way he treats T'Pol.
The subplot with Trip and Phlox's wife was hilarious. I also enjoyed the difference in the cultures and how Trip was trying to do the "right" thing. Good bit of character development there.
