Back to Carlos in the freezer.. LOL.. I like calling Lee Carlos! Wow.. Amanda whacks the guard on the head from behind.. Go Amanda!! Is that the first time she has ever hurt anyone? (other than indirectly?) Oh wait.. she did take out Sigrid the assassin with a car door Whoo hoo!
I love how Amanda opens the freezer door and whispers to Lee: come out!!! and waits for him to come out.. she doesn’t want to go in there!! ( I wouldn’t either!!)
Lee just stands there for a second or two, his numb mind needing time to register that Amanda is there, what she has said, Lee whispers: Amanda??? [I wonder if Lee thinks he’s dreaming of Amanda!]
Slowly he begins to move. awh!! Amanda coaxes him with her outstretched arms: Come on.
Poor Lee! Finally he gets out of there and leans back on the wall to hold himself up..
Amanda starts rubbing his arms to warm him up.. ( drat.. I wanted a hug!)
Lee: I’m so brittle, I feel like something could break off!
Amanda: ah ha! that’s a good sign you still have your sense of humour!
Amanda pulls Lee’s hand out and gives it a rub: give me your hand.
Lee: Amanda, you don’t have to worry about me. Get his gun.
Amanda: grab his gun.
So funny how Amanda doesn’t want to touch the gun but can’t put the gun in Lee’s still frozen hand- so she slides it into his trouser pocket! 😆
Lee: good, now get him undressed.
Amanda: get him undressed?
Lee: yes! I want to slip into something a little less consssssssspicuous! [I love how he says that!]
Amanda: Ok.. I’ll do everything accept the pants! [only on smk!!! ]
Lee: suit yourself……
As Amanda undresses the guard she asks about the meeting.. and asks Lee what the formula is for. Lee lays out the whole plan for us again.. Amanda says I don’t know what that means. Lee explains some more.. commodities markets.. lots of money blah blah.. Amanda says I still don’t know what that means –Lee explains even more! I’m thinking I really don’t need to know what that means! A way to make money for baddies.. got it.. that’s all the info I need.. yawn..
Lee: I’d be frozen stiff by now if it wasn’t for you. ( whoa! err I guess that is a thank you????) Frustrating we don’t get to see Lee’s face here.. but I think he is not in emotional mode.. he is in work mode- there is still a job to be done here!
Amanda: oh well.. I just.. [I think Amanda knows that’s about as much thank you as she can expect from Lee by now! Is it just me or do you wish Lee found out Billy told Amanda to go back to the bar and not worry about Lee?! ]
Lee: ahhh if you don’t mind? ( ie look out Lee’s about to get changed!)
Amanda: OH! and Amanda waits for him outside.. Love how she throws him the security hat and he winces as he has to use his hands now.. I bet he could have still used Amanda’s help there Whenever I watch this scene and see Lee struggling with his stiff hands and his bow tie – mumbling ‘my hands my hands’ I still keep hoping he will call out ‘ Errr Amanda? I could use a hand here!! ‘ but.. he never does!
Lee is actually grateful she found him.. and almost says so-Wow! At least he admitted he needed her. A little disappointed we didn’t have a blue boxers moment though.. he heee.. ( but then again, I shouldn’t treat Lee like he is a piece of meat right?! )
Officer Lee orders Amanda to go back to the bar… I like Lee in that uniform
Next thing, we see Perrine go to his car.. Masterson is watching him, he seems to pull something out of the car but we don’t actually see.. Uh oh.. Perrine has discovered London’s body.. Masterson is playing for keeps Perrine – I don’t know why he was invited in the first place, if Perrine knew he was broke! Anyway, Perrine has the formula, and is now trying to get away from Masterson! I love that Amanda was right! The formula really was hidden in the car!!! 🙂
Mrs Coleman is still waiting for Carlos propping up the end of the bar.. Hilarious!!!!
Mrs Coleman very slurred and slowly greets Amanda as she returns to the bar: Ohhh hello!! Ohhh no Carlos yet! Oh why?…. Oh it’s not your fault dear, dependable help has aaaallllways been a pain haaa.. You just.. do the best you can! And start with a Berrrhhhhh…. eemmmmiaaaannnn… errr.. thhhhhiiiiing! [HAAAAA!!! I hope Dotty hears about this!!!!! :lol:] Love how as Amanda turns away from Mrs Coleman she is trying to gracefully drape her scarf over her other shoulder – hilarious!!!!
Next thing.. we see a silent game of cat and mouse is happening between Perrine and Masterson.. Suffer Perrine.. what goes around comes around! Err I am guessing Masterson wants the formula without paying for it! I guess so. and Perrine hides it in Amanda’s clipboard so he can’t get his hands on it?
Ahhh smk – Remember early in the episode? Lee said he couldn’t stay in the bar and wait for it to fall into his lap! LOL.. in the end.. that is what they do.. handing over the formula by hiding it in Amanda’s clipboard, sitting on the bar! hehehee.. Man the spy biz is easy.
Masterson waits for his moment.. Amanda is busy creating another bohemian fling, [Love it! Now Mrs Coleman’s scarf is dangling on the ground!!! This whole day is a complete unravelling of Mrs Coleman! ] then Perrine gets distracted by a guest asking to look at the Bugatti with him.. ( the guy who wanted his drink almost lethal! Man.. he gets two lines!) Finally, Masterson snatches Amanda’s clipboard and takes off .
Amanda: Oh Sir! Excuse me Sir! that’s my clipboard!! Sir!!!
LOL.. Amanda climbs up over the fence calling out.. man she wants her clip board!! [A random moment to notice but.. yet again- Amanda is wearing a white top and black trousers!!! enough already!!! ]
Masterson gets up to the carpark and tackles a guy in white.. we can only assume it’s Perrine but we don’t actually see him. weird! guess because it is stunt Perrine! Anyway, Officer Lee catches up in time to see Masterson take off with his porsche! (open like that, I’m surprised it didn’t happen more often!) and… the chase begins.. although why Amanda had to go along for the chase I don’t know… maybe moral support for Lee! Haaa Lee asks the same question of Amanda..
Lee: Amanda why did you get in the car?!
Amanda‘s response is funny: He took my clipboard.
Lee: Oh Amanda! [I love how he says that!!]Amanda: If I don’t get that clipboard back I’m in alot of trouble!
More great lines!!
Lee: that’s my car!
Amanda: the poor thing!
Lee: I mean out of all the cars in the carpark, why did he have to pick my car?
Amanda: I know exactly how you feel!…. [why because he took her clipboard? LOL!!]
Lee: that guy gets one dent in that car!!!…… I’ll dent him..
The car chase itself goes on way too long.. and is a big yawn
Well, the porsche comes to a stop hanging over a cliff, Lee the human fly jumps on fleeing Masterson and puts a dent or two in him.. love how Amanda goes straight for the clipboard! ( funny the light in the close up and wide shot of this fist fight is completely different.. It’s like it was filmed at night! :lol:)
We see the Porsche’s last moments as it slowly creeps over the cliff edge.. Maybe another reference to the cocktail ‘cliffhanger’ Amanda mentioned earlier 😉 .. [hey maybe this was the season finale.. after all they do tend to end with cliffhangers!]
Love Billy’s response to seeing the wreck. Silence.. and then: Well, you were due for a new one anyway. did we get our conspiracy charge? (LOL!) Lee says the hard evidence is in the clipboard ( I guess he must have seen Perrine hide it there?!) Billy just wordlessly leaves.. Ahhh I guess he figures Amanda is better to comfort Lee!
Amanda: well, maybe you can save some parts.
BANG!! and the car explodes!!! … no saving parts now! they used this same joke in Groundhog day- I am sure they were copying smk! Where Bill Murray’s character drives off a cliff with the groundhog, and then someone says they may still be alive…. and then.. the truck explodes.. and oops.. not likely!
Did you notice how when they looked down at the car with Billy, the car was lying face down in the water? and.. when Billy leaves and Amanda is trying to comfort Lee with maybe saving some parts- we see the car again as it blows up.. and.. it is lying face up! and.. in a different location in the river!!! whoooo magic porsche! Rest in peace Magic Porsche.. Poor Lee!
Amanda and Lee quietly watch it burn. Amanda: History. Awh!! A fascinating thing to say at this moment!! I will come back to that!! They share a look..
Amanda: I’m sorry I know how much you loved your car.
Lee: ah Amanda, you don’t love a car, but you sure do get attached to one! [AWH!!!!]
(It’s cute how Amanda awkwardly brushes his jacket to comfort him here! They are not close enough for a hug.. but she wants to reach out to him and touch him somehow to comfort him. Awh!!!! )
Poor Lee.. that is a tough break! I love how Amanda calls it here.. ‘ History’ – yes… that is exactly what it is.. this is the closing of a chapter in Lee’s life.. and.. that means.. it is the start of a new one.. I like to think of it (IMHO) as Lee leaving his boyhood behind and heading into adulthood.. Even if Lee is a little developmentally delayed It was a boy’s car.. not a man car.. does that make sense? And well.. we don’t know what car is coming yet.. but whatever it is, it is a new beginning for Lee.. and it hints that there are even more changes ahead for Lee as we are about to head into season two Of course, this episode is not over yet.. I’ll be back with the final post soon.. where the tag continues this whole theme of moving on and the future!
byeee for now!
