11/ Season Three, Episode 8: Reach for the Sky-Scarecrow and Mrs King

Lee checks a corridor and finds it clear.

3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002194427_thumb[1]
They start walking down the corridor..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002197897_thumb[1]
and a guard appears at the other end readying his gun to shoot!!..
Lee:  Amanda, get back!
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002199199_thumbThey rush back around the corner for cover as the guard shoots at them.

Lee shoots and kills the guard.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002204404_thumb[1]
What do you make of Amanda’s facial expressions here??
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002208875_thumb[1]
Has Amanda seen Lee shoot and kill anyone before? Surely I must be just having a mental blank here.. Is this a first? (ah we started having this discussion with the previous post-feel free to continue it if you wish!)
At this point, Amanda can’t see the guard is dead- though I guess with that many bullets she could guess if the shooting has stopped that the guard is dead..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002209943_thumb[1]
The look could be fear because of all the shooting etc. and it could also be a reaction to this in your face experience of Lee taking someone’s life.. This is the reality of being an agent.. and maybe it ties in with the scene in Over the Limit?? where Amanda couldn’t shoot and kill someone??

3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002215548_thumbThey even have to walk past the dead guard on their way down the hall.. and they hesitate for a second next to the guard. It seems significant.. [though lol there’s no blood on the guard! tee hee]
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002219552_thumb[1]
Interesting too that Lee holds Amanda’s hand as they walk past the dead guard.

Lee:  C’mon, Amanda.
Lee arrives at a new door and starts coughing.. hmm guessing this is the room! Smile
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002221421_thumb[1]
Amanda tries the handle-
Amanda:  Locked.
Lee lines up the door.. and quickly glances at Amanda..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002227560_thumb[1]
I guess this is a little look to say you better move?
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002229963_thumb[1]
Amanda hides behind Lee as he shoots out the door lock. [Swoony!]
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002230764_thumb[1]
Funny though, when it cuts back to the door – I don’t see any bullet holes whahahaah!! [that might explain why the guard has no blood- this gun doesn’t make holes!! whahahahah!! Winking smile ]
still it’s pretty swoony how Lee protects Amanda.. so I don’t mind one bit!
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002233967_thumb[1]
In Lee goes.. they collect Billy and get out of that room..lots of coughing going on by everyone..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002237971_thumb[1]
Tetra Monoxide coughing!
[Interesting Amanda was left outside on her own? with no gun?? Amanda used a gun in Utopia Now.. Anyone open to the possibility this episode is before Sour Grapes?]
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002243576_thumb[1]3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002248114_thumb[1]
Out in the hallway now..
Lee:  Billy, are you alright?  Huh?
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002253987_thumb[1]
whoooo I love how throughout this moment, Amanda so naturally has her hand on Lee’s back – almost comforting him!!!awh!!!
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002254254_thumb[1]
Billy:  Damn it, Lee.  I told you to stay out of this.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002256389_thumb[1][rofl.. how’s that for a thank you! whahahahaa.. now you know how Amanda felt those times she saved you and got nothing but attitude haaa]
Lee:  I know.  I know.  Look, Canaan and his cronies are in his office.  Now, can you walk?
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002260126_thumb[1]
Billy nods.
Only now does Amanda move her hand from Lee’s back.. how sweet, I never (consciouslyWinking smile ) noticed that before Smile
LOL..Billy nods but… no he can’t walk yet!
Lee:  Amanda, help him.
Amanda:  Yeah.
Lee:  Now stay put and out of trouble.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002267600_thumb[1]
  I think we’ll stay with you.  It’s the best way to stay out of trouble.
[this is a new response.. lol! she has a point! Winking smile such a shame Lee didn’t say stay close, very close.. (guess the ep??!!) me like!! especially with the uniform!]
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002269469_thumb[1][whahaha! Good call Amanda! Again Lee doesn’t argue!! Smile ]
Lee:  Alright.
Amanda:  C’mon, sir.

3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002273473_thumb[1]
Lee starts heading down the corridor – cue 3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002281481_thumbthe super dramatic music – he kicks open the double doors leading into Canaan’s main office and boardroom.. it’s empty – except for a single Cyclops die left in the middle of the board room table.. [see! another one of those cool/ visually interesting frames- I think the director is in love with that die! Smile ]
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002285485_thumb[1]
Canaan and his ‘cronies’ (love that word) have left – lol they’ve even taken away Zorbel..
It’s kind of ‘lucky’ for Lee.. because I can’t see them not killing Lee if he came in with one gun.. just bursting in there would have gotten him killed..
Seems to me a rather dangerous thing to do with Billy so out of it – I would have thought they would try to sneak out of there.. it’s almost like Lee knew they wouldn’t be in there and it was commercial break time!! whooo Winking smile tee hee
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002297764_thumb[1]
Lee holds up the mysterious die –  duh duh duhhhhhhh!! How will they stop mysterious Cyclops?!
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002300700_thumb[1]
Lee has his eye on Cyclops!!! Winking smile whahahaha Keep an eye out Lee!.. (too many puns?!) you never know where you’ll run into Daisy the neck snapper..(Or as Valerie brilliantly put it the Daisy Dispatch! guys I hope you know.. I don’t know that I would have gotten this far in the walk without you!!! you guys keep me wonderfully motivated!!!)
Hurry up and get out of that magical hidden floor you three!

Okay this post is short and sweet violent haa haaa.. My level of busy has shot up another level.. so thinking smaller posts will keep the walk going – besides I’m guessing there is plenty in this post for us to dissect, discuss, ponder.. or just plain drool over – am I right? do tell!!! byeee for now everyone!!

10/ Season Three, Episode 8: Reach for the Sky-Scarecrow and Mrs King

Back to Lee and Amanda.. Lee has donned one of the guard’s uniforms. Hooo haaa… Lee in uniform.. well just render me thoughtless and speechless! focus on something else.. quick! ahbgaobhab;hab
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001953186
– okay this begs the questions.. did Amanda help undress the guard? and.. what did she do while Lee got changed huh?? Winking smile ah shame they didn’t call back to that scene in Charity Begins at Home.. where Amanda wouldn’t do the pants! And.. had to be asked by Lee to turn around while he got undressed Winking smile
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001954020At least we get a little moment of Amanda poking her head around the corner waiting for Lee’s okay to come out.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001955021Lee gives Amanda a head toss and she starts walking toward him – hey she has heels on again.. you’d think she would have kept her sneakers on for the action! There goes that theory of mine I guess!
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001957490Lee is standing at the doorway watching where they are about to go..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001962162Amanda:  Okay?
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001963363Lee: Yeah.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_0019643643.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001965699Amanda stands in front of Lee..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001966533
(is it just me or does BB or Lee seem to be stifling a smile here?)
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001967367She reacts to what Lee is doing behind her lol!
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001968001
I think we are left to wonder if he needs to watch his hands.. because we don’t know what they have planned here Winking smile but either way I think Lee is totally enjoying himself haa Smile
Amanda: (scoffing) Oh, please.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001968168
Amanda takes a deep breath and starts in with some loud complaining!
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001969235
We cut to further down the hallway and can see a guard at his station, Lee and Amanda move closer – seems Lee has Amanda’s arm behind her back like he just caught her (whooo just like in Star Wars!!! You know when they use chewie to get into the prison?!)
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001969703Amanda yells at Guard Lee: You big turkey! I’m going to call my lawyer!…
(BJo adds: ‘Look!!  It’s a baddie from the train station in TFT!!!’  see: )
Is it?! Whoa!!! I never would have noticed!!! I don’t think it’s listed on IMDB- amazing pick up BJo!
…You’re going to have the biggest lawsuit you ever saw on your hands –
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001975675(Amanda elbows Lee in the guts well I’m guessing not really but Lee makes it believable)
Lee: Ooh!
Amanda:  You big bozo!  Assault and battery, buster!

[Buster?!!!! not this time Buster!!!!! Winking smile ]
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001976676[Bozo? lol didn’t she get that one from Phillip?!]
(Amanda stomps on Lee’s foot)
Lee:  Ow!
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001979045[worse than a brownie Lee?? anyone remember that episode?? Winking smile ]
Security Guard 2: What the hell’s going on here?  Uh! [how how the guard seems to stick his neck out for Lee.. so polite Winking smile ]
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001980347Lee suddenly punches the guard who stumbles in shock. Lee very stylishly jumps the table there and kicks the guard knocking him out cold.. whoo hooo Winking smile
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001983483
Okay.. this pic above had me lol’ing.. especially because of the look on Amanda’s face – there’s a meme or two in this pic!!
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001984351[love Lee in uniform.. that’s enough to knock me out!]

3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001988388On the monitor- Amanda finds what they are looking for..
Amanda:  Look!
Lee:  Billy!
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001988855Amanda: Yeah.
Lee:  Which room is that?
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001993059Amanda: Uh…oh, I don’t know.  There are 3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_00199352618, 19 rooms.  Look at that -  three or four corridors.
[The map?? lame!!]
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001997731Lee:  Wait.  Look, that one must be Canaan’s office.  It just needs a key…
[There’s a sign saying ‘Canaan Surveillance prohibited’]
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001999366Amanda: The guard -
Lee: A key –
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002001701Amanda: The guard.
[wow.. what ‘luck’ that Amanda guessed the guard would have a key.. ha haa.. the episode doesn’t try to pass this off as luck – thank goodness.. but I like that it shows how Amanda is using her mind.
And – LOL!!! if it’s prohibited.. why have it? and why let the guard have the key? oh whatever.. very handy for Lee and Amanda.. now they can find out Cyclops does indeed exist..]
Lee: You’re right…
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002004738
Okay, this one.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002009175[Lee guessed which key? what luck!!!! Winking smile or.. was that Lee using his brain? It’s never luck for Lee..]
Lee finds the key, inserts it in the lock and turns it – the Cyclops TV show is currently airing Winking smile
Zorbel:  I’ve pulled the entire loan register –
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002010577Lee:  There’s Zorbel.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002012679Zorbel
continues his little show and tell: This is tomorrow’s list of the private codes of every bank with which we have accounts….
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002019452
…With these codes, we can use the banks’ own computers to credit our accounts with money that doesn’t exist.

[Lee has seen that list.. and.. Lee was left to live- I really don’t get why no one has noticed he could be a threat..
Soooo this is still the same day, and the schedule for the crime is being brought forward to tomorrow.. all still seems to make sense]
Baddie 1:  And you do this by tampering with satellite communications?  3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002026693[Microwaves!]
Zorbel:  We send our own more powerful signal, overriding the satellite transmissions, and thereby moving money at will.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_0020313643.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002032532
[Such luck that Lee and Amanda hear this little snippet of the meeting.. but then again.. Amanda is lucky!!!! Winking smile ]
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002035802Canaan:  Well, gentlemen, tomorrow at this time Cyclops will have secured a cool $1 billion dollars…
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002037904
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002047714  …Not bad for a day’s work.  We begin precisely at 9:30 a.m.  By 10:30, we’re $1 billion dollars richer…
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_0020488823.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002051451
…I believe Mr. Zorbel’s presentation is now complete.
[That sounds like 930am tomorrow..to me.. how about you?]
The members of Cyclops seem suitably smug and satisfied with this idea of being a billion richer!
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002053086Zorbel:  Thank you.  [Nooo Zorbel you really don’t want to thank him haa]
Canaan:  As always, a unanimous vote is necessary.  In favour?
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002068268[Seems the Cyclops dice are their way of voting.. each of the members holds out their hand with one of the die in it to vote yes – what did they do to vote no? hmm maybe they had an empty hand.. You know I find this episode visually to be a really interesting episode.. there are some very cool, visually interesting camera angles etc. Especially where the baddie is involved.. some of the pics I’ve used including the die have been visually really creative and different looking- like it! ]
(The vote is unanimous)
… Then we shall proceed…
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002069903Canaan
looks over to Zorbel as Daisy approaches Zorbel from behind:  ..But, unfortunately, we won’t be needing your services any longer, Mr. Zorbel.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002074107[lol Zorbel is so stupid or cocky he doesn’t even sense any danger here..]
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002074341Zorbel seems to have been tasered.. He suddenly doesn’t seem interested in what is going on around him!
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002077143
Snap!!!!! Daisy breaks Zorbel’s neck killing 3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002079245him..
I like that we don’t see it.. we didn’t need to! Daisy is one 3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002084384tough baddie.
Cyclops look unsurprised by Daisy’s handiwork (get the pun?!).
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_0020808803.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002081114
Aaahhh there you go Lee- now you don’t need to feel so bad huh at Daisy shoving you into that removals truck! He got off very lightly (I bet she used the cobra death grip… which ironically in Welcome to America Mr Brand didn’t actually cause death..)
Lee to Amanda:   I know that woman.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002086252Interesting! That comment sounds like Lee didn’t fully tell Amanda had Daisy whipped his butt! Or he would have said she’s the one who beat me or something.. lol.. can’t say I blame him for not sharing that.. but seeing this- Lee must realise he got off very lightly!

3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002088121Also- is this the first time Amanda has ever seen anyone killed with bare hands?? Interesting to think that if this is – then Amanda’s first time it’s actually a woman who does the killing.. wow.. How’s that for equal opportunity! I guess Amanda can see that there is well and truly women involved in the fight of good and evil.. and the good needs women!
Canaan:  Thank you, my dear. [Canaan calls Daisy ‘my dear’?! whahahaahaa.. ]
to the Cyclops members: …I too, like you, loathe incompetence.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002091624Baddie 1:  Precisely.  I think I speak for the 3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002093493board when I say that we all hold you entirely responsible for the operation, Charles.  He was 3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002095128your man.  Now, if the operation succeeds, you’ll get all the glory.  If it fails, you pay the price.  Do you understand?
Canaan:  Oh, I understand, and I won’t fail…
  (to Daisy) …Use the tetramonoxide on Melrose.  It leaves a nice and more natural-looking corpse.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002113580Whahahahah what dialogue!!!  I shudder to think what some other type of gas might have done to a corpse!
Whooops!!! Come on Lee and Amanda hurry up and find Billy!! enough of Cyclops tv!

3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002119686Amanda:  Uh, it could be any one of these rooms.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002120854Lee:  Well, pick a direction!
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002123690Amanda:  Well…
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002124024(Amanda looks to her left)
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002124858..that way.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002126359(Amanda points to her right)
Lee:  That way it is.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002127694Lee:  Go on.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002134534Ahhh yes.. I guess this is that amazing guesswork/luck that Amanda seems to have at work in the field.. I’m thinking that’s what the writing was aiming at with Lee raising this earlier – Amanda’s luck will come in handy when they need it to find Billy.. meh!!! Of all the ways to show Amanda is special – this is possibly my least favourite plot device.. And this is why I don’t see it as Lee reverting to his old ways of underestimating Amanda earlier– I see that the writers here tried to incorporate Amanda’s luck into the script – and Lee’s acknowledgement and reliance on it from the looks of things – it’s like Lee is saying The great Amanda oracle has spoken! Just super lame.. I also imagine that it was tempting to write Amanda as lucky – it’s a lot easier to write.. clever and uniquely logical Amanda solving cases with her quirky view of things is probably not so easy.. It’s going to be interesting to see if this idea of Lucky Amanda sticks around in future episodes.. Luck is a lazy way to move the plot along (as I already discussed with the whole utopia now moment where Amanda just happens to pick up the rocket cap!).
Thank goodness they had the little moment of Amanda thinking the guard would have keys – logic!!!! Or I’d be really annoyed!
Okay.. I promise I will not go on about this and I’ll just try to enjoy them working together to save Billy (that and Lee in uniform!)

They start searching the offices.. Lee leads the way with his machine gun.. A gas begins 3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002153286seeping into Billy’s room.. uh oh..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002154020Billy:  Ahh…uh.
Billy begins to cough.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002156956At least if Billy is coughing Lee and Amanda might hear him!

Back to Lee and Amanda.. more sneaking along corridors and checking doors.

3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002166499Billy begins coughing more strongly.. tetra-hurry up already!!

Is (Lucky) Amanda telling Lee which doors to open?
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002170870

Okay guys.. this post is getting long.. I better finish up here for the moment! Has Amanda seen someone killed with a person’s bare hands? Given the hints that Amanda is choosing to head into very dangerous territory here to rescue Billy – I find it interesting this murder she seems committed is carried out by a woman (named Daisy no less Winking smile )

Can’t wait to hear your thoughts everyone!

9/ Season Three, Episode 8: Reach for the Sky-Scarecrow and Mrs King

Inside the elevator of the big bad high rise..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001830897Amanda and Lee attempt to access the hidden floor. Whooo it’s the magical manicure set again.. twice in one episode?! Lee attempts to pick the lock. lol.. it’s umm not very high tech is it..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001838705Amanda: You sure you can get it?
Lee: I don’t know.
[Yeah! you’d think it would be hard, I mean.. it’s Cyclops!]
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001839172Amanda:  Oh yeah, I’m sure you can.  I mean c’mon, you were the only fraternity guy who could get into the back door of the Kappa House in ten seconds flat.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001842442Lee:  Did I tell you that?
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001845712Amanda: Yeah, you told me that.  I was a Kappa.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001846880Lee:  You were a Kappa?
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001848281Amanda:  Yeah, I told you that.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001849916Lee: Yeah, you did.
Amanda: Yeah.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001851551Love how Lee raises his eyebrows!
– come on everyone! What do you think Lee is thinking here?!

A cute little moment – love how they insert these little sweet character moments between the action- this is top shelf smk! What smk does best! Very coupley conversation huh..  sounds like they’ve been talking about more than just shop talk ;)

My guess? Lee seems a bit bemused when he realises he told Amanda that – I think Lee is thinking- man.. I told you that?! I’ve told you a lot.. and.. you’re okay with that?!  Smile
Before it dawns on Lee that he told Amanda this stuff and his reaction to that– I think there is a hint of new admiration for Amanda when it dawns on him that she was a Kappa.. Lee likes Kappa’s.. and this new way of seeing Amanda that he is coming to embrace is helping to be open to enjoying these things about her – well that’s my guess at this point anyway… maybe you guys have a better way of seeing this that I prefer Winking smile
Lee: I’ve never seen anything quite like this… 

[Amanda? or the lock? Winking smile tee hee.. well this cracks me up.. looks like a piddly normal lock to me.. but talk up your skills there Lee I’m sure it will impress Amanda! Amanda did seem mighty proud of Lee’s record at breaking into Kappa house!]

(the elevator starts moving and doing it’s special lights on the display)
Amanda: Ahhh.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001859726
Lee looks intrigued- ohh so that’s what happens…. Whereas Amanda’s reaction is – uh oh umm we are really doing this??!!! It’s moving!!!!
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001861594
Lee pulls the key out..
Lee: There.
Both Lee and Amanda stand up and silently watch the lights do their thing..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001868134Lee:  You sure you want to go through with this?
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001869536
[getting to know you better Lee?? or.. Cyclops?? I know which one I’d rather do Winking smile ]
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001870937Amanda looks nervous and a bit scared.
Amanda quietly:
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001872105Lee silently looks at her.. not sure..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001871871Amanda turns to look at Lee and more adamantly responds:
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001873039Lee silently looks at Amanda.. Smile
They make quite a point of this here.. that Amanda is choosing to do battle with Cyclops and go into this dangerous situation.. can’t wait to hear what you all make of this!

3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001874207Okay! here goes!!! We cut to outside the elevator and Amanda exits and lets out a deep 3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001875608breath- no sign of Lee..

Security Guard:  Hold it right there!
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001877243Amanda:  Ohhhhh!!!! Thank goodness, another human being.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001880046
…I have been stuck in that thing for what must have been hours going up and down, up and down,…UP AND DOWN!!!…
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001883783[Love the motioning Amanda does here.. completely distracting and overwhelms the security guard – guess it leads him to conclude Amanda is no threat – just a superfluous annoyance – just like Francine sees her Smile ]
…. I got on at six just to zip up to seven to
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001885418borrow a little coffee from purchasing,.. [I think she's had enough coffee...]  ..and that thing ran away with me… [whahaha]
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001891257
Up and down, up and down, up and down!  What floor is this anyway?
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001893593
[Amanda is genius!!]
Cranky Guard:  What floor doesn’t make any difference.  It’s private.  How did you get up here?
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001895929
[err she just told you how]
Incredulous Amanda:
I pushed the button.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001901301(This directs the guard over to the elevator to investigate) [Good one Amanda.. ]
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001902936Amanda Sighs. as the guard enters the elevator..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001904804
[knowing what’s coming! Winking smile and relieved the guard has fallen for it?] Lee punches the guard in the face..
Guard: Oomph!
Lee: grunts or something. [hilarious transcribing BJo!]
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001908308Now that punch in the face looked real! Smile Lee exits the elevator shaking off his hand he must have used to deliver the punch. Seeing he’s successfully knocked out the guard, Lee turns to Amanda.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001909242Amanda gives another big sigh and holds out her hand for Lee to give her five..

Lee doesn’t hesitate – it’s like they wordlessly say to each other – Good job partner!!! Smile
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001909943Then Amanda gives Lee five Smile

What a team!! I like that this moment is all non verbal.. wondering how it plays out in the script- anyone??
Wordlessly they both bend down to deal with the unconscious guard.

Thanks for the reminder about Billy.. LOL I was too busy enjoying Lee and Amanda’s cuteness.. very naughty of me!

On to the Cyclops meeting…
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001918585Zorbel:  Admittedly, there have been a few inconveniences, but we now have them well under control.
Baddie 1 (Curtis St. Clair in script): Inconveniences?  Sounds more like serious complications of the entire project.
Canaan: Aghaney’s suicide raised a few eyebrows, and Melrose appears to be working on his own… [soooo did Zorbel and Daisy neglect to mention Lee the agent was at Zorbel’s?? I mean Canaan knew about Lee the bank investigator.. and new he could potentially be a threat. Or is Canaan lying to Cyclops?? who knows.. This makes nooo sense to me]
…He’s an old stag stumbling out of retirement.  Nothing to worry about.
[Interesting.. so he has no idea who Billy is huh..]
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001945879Baddie 2 (Derrick Blount in script):
One billion dollars is a great deal to worry about, Charles.  I’m worried.  Our associates are worried.  You and we can’t afford to stumble.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_001949616Canaan:  We won’t. 
(Canaan nods to Zorbel for him to proceed):   The plan.
I best call it a halt here.. soooo Lee and Amanda working together here is a joy to watch no?! They are enjoying being a team!!! Smile and I am enjoying watching them enjoy it too! Smile
Okay everyone.. byee for now!!! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on this ep so far – whatever you’d like to share!!!! byeeeeee
