Oh hey, there is one of those little buggies in the back ground.. so they are not completely gone huh.. I always think they are for the elderly or something..
Lee Lee!!! repeat after me: No eyeliner today, thankyou. Ugh…
Lee wonders how they can get into Delano’s party on Saturday night. I love that Billy just gives Lee a look and Lee immediately knows Billy is thinking of Amanda!!!! Lee’s response? very cute ‘ Uh oh!! I know that look!’
Billy: All she has to do is open a door for y-
Lee: Billy, she can’t even keep a wire on right.
Billy: She doesn’t need a wire! Didn’t you tell me that Delano was quite taken with her? Well, surely she can use her charm to get herself invited.
Leeeee!!!!! You said Delano is taken with her? Then you question her Charm??? you bad boy.. You’re fighting it bad aren’t you!!! Lee.. your jealous gorgeous self is not making any sense right now!! Err might I add.. she didn’t need a wire the first time either!!
Oh dear.. Delano getting a manicure?? hmm.. not very masculine of him is it.. (smk likes it’s metrosexuals!) I wonder if he wanders around his mansion on one of those airport buggies!!
Hollander’s voice is soooooo annoying!!! Ok.. They are actually in a bedroom having this discussion ?? So whose bedroom is it? Delano looks to be in his pj’s.. but Hollander is sitting at the little table having his breakfast…. so whose room is it exactly? Ohhhh I think Hollander is eating Delano’s breakfast and this is Delano’s room.. Hollander tells Delano to: eat your poached eggs, and not bite his nails.. Aie! He is totally invading Delano’s space here.. I think that is what is suppose to be conveyed.. Hollander is taking over not only Delano’s breakfast (as he just helps himself to it) but also his bedroom.. and he is taking over his morality and his life too! Delano is upset at Hollander killing Singer… He tries to pull out of the whole deal, but Hollander isn’t going to let that happen now. ( You mean it wasn’t some random ice-cream truck?? ahhh the neighbourhood kids are safe again!! )
Lee and Amanda meet in a park… Lee tries to guess what kept her.. hmm.. using your charm to smooth things over there Lee?
Lee and Amanda both go to say sorry about last night at the same time.. awh!!
Although.. I have my suspicions Lee was apologising because he needs Amanda to charm Delano.. sorry and feel free to disagree but I am still a little suspicious of Lee’s motives at this point! I think they are mixed.. Even if he is starting to have feelings for Amanda!
You can just tell that Lee has actually rehearsed this conversation.. what he will say to her about James Delano, and how he will talk to her about charming him…. Lee immediately sets out to deliver his little speech about how James Delano is no one for her to get involved with (you see he pulled her into the spy biz, he feels responsible for her.. yep… that is the only reason why this bugs him.. yeaahhhhh right!)
Amanda admits that it is all just a fantasy and she isn’t taking it seriously.. (much..) Lee looks relieved when Amanda says this!
Lee may have a plan for how this conversation should go- but he can’t help himself. He seems truly concerned for her, and conflicted about all this; happy to hear she is downplaying her stint as Victoria Greenwich but still worried for her. It’s all there in his eyes as he reacts to her..
This is where BB gets my utmost admiration – he manages to portray Lee as ambitious, with an agenda – but at the same time, he can’t help but respond emotionally to Amanda.. with conflicting emotions at that.. ohh I go on sorry but I find this part of the show to be wonderful!
No wonder Amanda pushes his buttons- hang in there buddy… things will start to get better.. Hey! This next line of Amanda’s is a start:
Oh my!!!! his reaction to that is too funny! He doesn’t say a word.. it’s all in his face.. He has no idea how to respond to this! He is very controlled considering what he just heard. (which leads me to suspect he wasn’t so controlled on the inside!!)
Amanda’s a little embarrassed but still good natured enough to have a little chuckle at what she has put out there! (hey, it could technically be her saying yeah I use to fantasise about secret agents, and that fantasy turned out to be lousy in real life!)
Yep, deep breath Amanda.. keep it together here! She may say things that are sometimes silly, but she can pull herself together and keep her dignity intact. Good on you girl! She is a courageous woman!
I think he is wondering how they got into this conversation and what was the next thing he was suppose to say? focus man! Let’s keep this business…. and man.. does Lee go into Business mode!
enjoyed saying that one bit. His mouth is saying one thing… his eyes
Lee says all will be alright and-bing !
It is sweet that the moment Lee reassures her all will be fine if she does exactly what she is told she immediately and visibly relaxes again- her trust in Lee is strong as ever..even inspite of their blow up last night.. awhhhh..
Lee: Look, it shouldn’t be dangerous if you do exactly what you’re told….Now first, we want you to get yourself invited to a party that he’s giving Saturday night.
Amanda: is that all?
Oh my!!! the way Lee says “although he did seem quite taken with you” while looking her up and down again? stop that Lee!! Whooo haaaa!!!! (iwsod is fanning herself furiously and opening a window…)
Soo.. Lee walks away and starts pacing..(that way he doesn’t have to look at her!)- again he is all business while he has to talk to Amanda about charming Delano.. it is too funny..
I just Love that Amanda lets him go with it for a little while.. (although personally I wish she had also asked Lee for more detailed help i.e. Ok Lee.. what do I say to him when he calls? How can I really make him fall for me Lee???!!! Yeah tell me more about that scenario Lee! and umm. how about a little role play while we’re at it???!! Hmm why don’t we go out to dinner and discuss this further??!!!) hehehee..
You know, while I love all this Charm talk here.. I kind of agree with Lee.. This is a dangerous situation – not like the first dinner date she had. They are now in a different situation: they know that the baddies know they are on to them, they know the baddies killed Singer, and they know the baddies are now going to be extra extra careful – and things will be extra extra dangerous! To send Amanda in there (with no wire) is IMHO dangerous!! ( but heck, for the sake of me swooning over Lee’s upcoming freak out I am sooo glad they did! )
Still when Logic kicks in- I can’t help but wonder: if Amanda had known Singer was murdered – would she have agreed to do it? (and would she have eaten ice-cream ever again?!)
Also, I can’t believe Lee didn’t fight harder to keep Amanda out of it.. ( I guess with that ridiculous ice cream truck the seriousness of Singer being murdered is downplayed huh!! tee hee)
My posts on this episode seem to be extra long!!! I didn’t think you would mind The episode is full to the brim with wonderful Lee and Amanda moments – all dense with meaning… I can’t help but take lots of pics of all the wonderful emotions fleetingly on show!
Will be back with more soon! I’d love to hear your thoughts!! Thanks for reading
