Amanda catches up with Angelo at Liberty Larry’s.. he explains that he doesn’t want to see Eva, she doesn’t love him. (he says you would think a man with ESP would have seen that- ok so he has it huh.. err if it is really a real thing anyway.. whatever! I still feel sorry for him!)
Last night, he heard Eva talking to the russians during the night on the phone.. telling them where he was.. and Angelo knows she is an agent for the KGB…(interesting to note that Angelo didn’t go to Lee and tell him.. he just took off.. and left Lee to deal with the coming KGB.. kinda serves Lee right! hehehee..)
Lee goes to call Amanda again.. and hears the message. Quick Lee!!! ( the script of this ending is completely different! No cars, no liberty larry’s!)
Amanda: The best thing for you to do is to stay here and let us help you. I mean, how far do you think you’re going to get in this piece of junk? It’s going to fall apart any minute!
Angelo: Amanda, it won’t fall apart! It’s a marvellous deal, the gentleman told me.
Amanda: Liberty Larry told you?
Amanda: Oh, Liberty Larry told you, well, that’s great. You know why there’s a junkyard here? The ones he can’t sell, he just wrecks! (Amanda you told Angelo to go to him!! lol!)
Looks like the baddies have arrived at the junkyard.. whoops I mean car yard and junkyard! How does Amanda know they are KGB before they have even pulled out their guns? she never saw them..
whoo I like the KGB lady’s boots.. she is pretty groovy for a granny KGB lady! Ok, this is where I nod off.. wake me when something interesting happens..
Lee and Eva turn up at the car yard.. ‘Crazy message’ Lee? come on it was pure poetry.. filled you in didn’t it. in a way anyone else listening wouldn’t get..
Oh the gall of Eva.. she tells Lee he played right into their hands and led her to Angelo..Muahahaa! and.. that he is the best at everything?!! ( weird! if he were the best he’d be pointing the gun at her right now..)
Lee: I don’t choose my lovers particularly well
Lee: I don’t think you can kill someone that loved you
(oh Lee.. come on!!! I think at this point I was believing she would pull the trigger!)
Lee: Can you forget Venice, Eva? Just like that? ( that arrogance is going to get you killed!! BTW- I think this is an awful line of dialogue.. clunky as.. in a very tense moment..but just MHO!)
From the looks of this camera angle – this awful line was added post production – they shouldn’t have.. the line about love was enough..Looks like they redid Lee’s part in this sequence… BB does a great job.. it’s all there to see – fear, shock and then.. rage!
The delusion is OVER!!! Can you believe Eva’s next line? ‘ I knew it wasn’t loaded!’ – the nerve of her!!!! she is simply awful.. makes Francine look like an angel! Whooo Lee really doesn’t go easy on her – Angelo and Amanda’s lives are in danger.. .. suffer Eva.. you’re bad!! you’re bad!!!
Uh oh.. hurry Lee! Amanda and Angelo are about to get squashed!!
Whoo Lee locks Eva in the boot (ok for americans… the trunk!) of the car..how nice of him to let her keep her purse – her precious lipstick is in there Gee I hope he forgets which car he locks her in-that would be great.
Time for Lee’s contractually obligated action finale! ( wake me when it’s done ok?!)
Karate Kick Lee? cool! just make it snappy..
Lee tells the KGB lady to turn it off..
Come on Lee.. just shoot the woman.. (and take the boots later!) she’s delaying you and you have no time to be nice to her!! Ahhh I see he is using the gun he took of Eva, and it has no bullets.. so he is basically bluffing.. doh.. oh.. and the lady wasn’t even controlling it? man.. I should pay a bit more attention.. ahem.. but it does seem like that squashing thingy err I mean crushing device takes extra long to come down and Amanda and Angelo should history.. but…
Superspy Lee manages to warp space and time and stop the crushing device
It’s round up time.. Liberty Larry gets an icepack for his bump on his head, Angelo leans against the car alone pondering it all, the KGB are lead into cop cars.. The cops come and take Eva away.. a cop with a trench coat? Ohhh I see.. probably agency.. we get more of Eva? Nooo I’m done! (The agent’s name is Dick? let me guess.. last name Tracey!) Lee calls to Dick to give him a minute with Eva.
Eva: I suppose everything has been said.
Lee: Looks like.
Eva: I want you to know that this had nothing to do with you.Politics.
Lee: Well, that makes me feel a lot better. You were — you were with them even then, weren’t you? And marrying him was just an assignment.
Lee: And you were never . . . in love with me?
Eva looks away silently, and Lee reacts..
Eva: Lee? Of course I was in love with you.
unable to maintain eye contact with him.. IMO Lee seems to be looking at her as if to say – you don’t know what love is… and she looks away knowing he doesn’t believe her anymore. Suffer Eva! Rot in jail Eva.. without your bath oil beads and your lipstick!
So Eva is driven away and Amanda approaches Lee.. he smiles, is relaxed and puts his arm around her shoulder and directs her to another spot. Notice Amanda looks down to look at Lee’s hand around her shoulder??
Lee: You know, Amanda, I’m really glad we had that talk last night. It helped.
Amanda: Good. I’m glad.
Lee: I’ve been thinking a lot about what you said.
Lee: Yeah, remember when you said that, uh, when it’s really over, I’ll know when it’s over?
Lee: Guess what.
He is glad he had a talk with Amanda.. awh… and .. he has been thinking about it alot.. awh…. Yes Lee, she is great to talk to! umm… something really good to look for in a lover! Keep that in mind for the future.. For a talker, Amanda is smart and doesn’t say much here at he end..
So there we have it.. what a journey for Lee.. hard to watch but very worthwhile!! We learn lots about Lee.. and we watch Lee learn alot about himself! One more step towards being ready for a grown up relationship with Amanda – that alone makes this episode worthwhile!!!!
No Tag??? So I guess last week’s wasn’t the only one with no tag.. still the fact that Lee is saying it is over- well who can top that right? what great news!!! and his happiness at it being over- Well, that is the best of all!!! and he got through it with Amanda there to help.. and best of all- he realises how much she helped him!!! awh…
I would have liked to have seen what happened to Angelo and gotten some closure there for him too. He seems to be the forgotten character in this story.. We just leave him all alone next the the police car.. I really felt for him..I kinda wish Lee and Amanda had gone back to him and comforted him…It would have been great to see Lee and Amanda wish him well, or empathise or even one day have Angelo come back in another episode – and Amanda could set him up on a blind date with Agnes or something! ( which episode was that? J edgar’s ghost.. )
Did you guys notice this is the second episode in a row where someone comes back from the dead?! .. interesting to compare Lee’s reveal to Amanda with Eva’s reveal to Lee! Also, good to see Lee remain physically intact in this episode ( shoulders ok! knees ok!!) – but his heart got broken this week.. awhhh.. and Amanda? well.. once again she got kidnapped – well she couldn’t get out of the car even though she wanted to- I consider that kidnapped!
This is a hard to watch episode, and at times I probably sound like I don’t even like this show! tee heee.. At the same time, I know in the big scheme of things this is a very important episode for Lee’s growth in character and putting the past to rest so he can move forward, and further developing his trust in Amanda as his good friend- also very very important!.. so all in all, it was an episode we had to have…
Thanks for reading and well done for getting this far! tee heee..
I say about this episode:
It’s ooooooovvvvveeer!!!!!! Yipeeee!!!!
