I see the script for lost and found is now listed on Petra’s site -whooo hoo!! (thank you Petra and drprnces for sharing it with everyone!!! ) It is very exciting to see a season 1 script, I’ve never seen one before! ( see my link for Petra’s SMK website)
It is interesting to compare.. I wish I’d looked at it earlier, it’s a great distraction from the impending doom!! Amanda was initially going to work with an agent called ‘Jack’ when she was given the assignment to help Angelo? Hmm that’s very interesting!! so it wasn’t a solo assignment after all..
Also, in the script they had Angelo tell Amanda that it was Eva’s idea they go to Russia – that explains Amanda’s immediate distrust of Eva I think..
Is anyone interested in looking at the script in detail and sharing what you find? (we could even make it into a blog post if you like- with you as the author, not me) – let me know if you are interested in working on this little project!
I will refer to the script occasionally but won’t point out all the differences (sadly I don’t have time).
Back to the episode, and we find Lee is sleeping on the sofa in the living room. It’s the middle of the night and Lee hears noises, he gets up- ( What??? the script says he only has pyjama pants on!! – hooo haaa.. what happened?? too much sexual heat going on with Eva?? I’m major disappointed we didn’t see more shirtless Lee! Oh wait.. shirtless Lee with Eva? and what is about to happen? no no good decision! we didn’t need to see that at all!!! ) Anyway, full clothed Lee bursts into Eva’s bedroom… Eva is speaking on the phone- she says to Angelo’s doctor in Milan..
Eva: Oh, yes, I remember. I should have known right then that there was something . . . dangerous about you. I have thought of you so often in the last two years.
Eva: Not without guilt. Angelo was in prison most of that time.
Can you believe he is falling for that line? I had a better line than that in high school!!! – sound familiar?! Am I sounding like a jealous person? you bet!!! I am very tempted to just skip this scene and take one picture.. but I feel it isn’t fair to Lee’s journey.. it is hard for Lee.. and it is hard for us to watch Lee.. but.. we will stick with it as good comes from it! and thank goodness he had all his clothes on!!
Eva: No, no. The truth is, Lee, I have made a mistake. I admire Angelo, I respect Angelo, and in that sense, I do love him, but if I am to stay with him, it would only be out of —
Lee: If you were to stay with him?
Eva: Well, I would never leave him until I saw him safe and happy.
[See the admiration Lee looks at Eva with when she says this? Like wow.. what a good woman- she will only leave Angelo if she knew he was safe and happy- how deluded is that!! err Lee.. she is looking at leaving her husband.. but..if it is for you- well then that is ok I guess.. I comfort myself that Lee is not thinking straight here- or I would doubt his admirable qualities..]
Eva: I may never leave him. But I want you to know, in case it is never to be said, that I have loved you for all of those two years since I last saw you. (ARGHHHH-I just want to bang my head against the wall…)Thank Goodness we see some resistance here, some attempt from Lee to keep a clear head.. Lee tries to resist..
Lee: Billy’s right. I shouldn’t be involved with this, I just shouldn’t.
Eva: Is that all you have to say?
Lee: I’ll have myself taken off the case tomorrow.
Eva: Lee, please. We may never see each other again. Did you ever love me? If you had told me then, things might be so different now. How do you feel? (Ohhh so it’s his fault is it?!)
He couldn’t resist any longer.. especially since he still had feelings for her.. So she can’t leave Angelo until he is well and happy… well that way she can keep Lee hooked and stay with Angelo.. she is no dummy huh..what a piece of work! I am so uncomfortable watching this scene..
One photo of that.. is one too many!
The KGB show up ( you couldn’t have come any earlier???!!!).. and cock their guns again out the front of the house..right in front of the window..gee you would think Lee would have heard that.. anyway, so this is how we find Lee and Eva.. thank goodness Lee is fully dressed!!
It’s almost like Eva is waiting for the KGB to arrive- distracting Lee from their arrival actually now that I think about it..
The KGB burst in on Lee and Eva’s little cosy chat and it seems Angelo has gone…and so they are safe.. (he had probably left before Lee went and found Eva..clever guy!)
Wow.. that was a really fake looking back hander that russian eyeliner guy just gave Lee..
In the script only, we have the KGB iron lady (whose name apparently is ‘Magovich’) deliver this fabulous line to Lee: So, Here we have you in your pyjama bottoms, Mrs Spinelli in your pyjama top (Yep, instead of the cardigan!ugh!!), and Mr Spinelli missing from his bedroom. Obviously a fascinating situation.
ROFL!!! I am so glad they didn’t go with the whole Lee semi naked thing.. but rofl!!!!
Ahhh Amanda arrives again.. hurray for Amanda.. she is greeted at the door by a neighbour who was being very nice and all..but her timing was terrible.. and in they walk into a trashed room and Lee adjusting his gun holster heheee…. The KGB left when they heard Amanda arrive? Lee calls Billy and fills him in.. whooo he admits it was strange that Eva was talking to a doctor at 3am.. How did Angelo escape if he was with Eva?? suffer Lee.. Lee has to admit to Billy ( and Amanda listening in) that he and Eva were ‘talking’ all night long together.. that’s gotta hurt! Lee’s reluctance to share this info is encouraging… already there are signs he regrets what happened! 😉 ( so great how Amanda just wordlessly waves her hands in sympathy when Lee hangs up from Billy and he turns to see her reaction- smart woman our Amanda.. best to hold your tongue – for now!!)
On that note.. I will hold my tongue for now too!
This episode may turn into a 6 parter! I’ll see how I go.. If you can write and say hi and what you think please do!
