2/7 Season Two, Episode 3: Double Agent–Scarecrow and Mrs King

Time to meet the baddies! The Baddie Uniform? Plaid!!! Smile They’re staying at the baddie 2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000320253hotel ‘ the Bixby’ we see it again don’t we? Hmm not sure where.. let me know if you see it! lol.. The baddies are watching Harriman on TV also! Seems Harriman has a history of writing spy novels. The baddie plan is: get the russians and 2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000335268the americans in a bidding war for Harriman’s tell all.. Harriman is going to go along with their plan-because the baddie has a gun. whooo and it is now loaded!! (smk loves to show people loading guns loudly huh!)

On to the studio where the interview is finished and Mr Harriman gets out of his rocking chair.. Too 2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000350283funny! It really is a rocking chair! This set is too funny! Lee catches Mr Harriman as he walks off set- for an interview with ‘insider’ magazine- good one! Harriman warns him off 2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000365298trying to talk him out of it. [whoo check out the sketch behind them.. WC fields! someone on the smk staff loves WC fields!! – he is referenced a few times in season 3.. ] It’s interesting they sent Lee to talk to him.. Lee doesn’t do subtle.. he does confrontation! Winking smile

Harriman says the agency will need to hire new 2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000377310staff once his book comes out [what with all those housewives they won’t be using anymore] he’s putting quite a spin on it.. Harriman tries to tell Lee he will release the book basically to make changes at 2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000389322the agency.. but.. it doesn’t fit!  Lee sees through it and responds ‘ still bitter aren’t you.’ Harriman he says he gave up several years of his life to the agency and to see it all get put at risk by amateurs is not acceptable.. Hmmm it’s Funny.. you know I think that Francine would echo those sentiments exactly! ( and at one time, Lee probably would have too! ) not that what this man is doing is right by any stretch of the imagination.
2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000374307Ahhhh Ernest, brave Lee.. ahhhh he looks so handsome when he is fighting to protect people( and has that look on his face that says ‘you’re scum!!!!’) How did this guy think he was going to get out of this alive? It had bad idea written all the stupid book…

2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000392325Harriman’s true colours begin to shine. he got stuck in a jungle somewhere for ‘one lousy mistake’.. and is out to make the agency pay..
2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000395328Lee: that one lousy mistake cost three lives Pal.
Uh oh! Lee is calling him Pal! – I don’t think any mistake Amanda has made has cost anyone their lives.. and she has saved multitudes in one episode alone ( slymph!!!! ).
2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000398331Harriman: look the agency owes me so this is my way of collecting..
Ahh haa.. so this is about money.. he really wants pay back.- literally! The more upset Lee gets.. the bigger Harriman’s smile gets.. I get it now..

2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000410343Harriman, don’t forget to take off your TV make up on the way out- your eyeliner looks ridiculous, it is hard to keep up the ‘I’m a tough guy so negotiate’ thing your trying for when you look like Captain Jack Sparrow!(or Keith Richards – hey, take your pick!)
Off storms Captain  Harriman (unfortunately he doesn’t walk the plank!). This is smk land ( shout out to Petra’s site!! Smile ) –Captain Harriman,  you’ll get your comeuppance!! don’t you worry!
Back to the agency, Amanda exits the coat elevator to find Lee waiting for her.
2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000425358Amanda: Lee? I know you asked me never
to come without calling, [
lol.. did he really?! well that’s not going to last much longer! Smile ] but I think this might be very important. I was at home watching television with Mother–
Lee: You’re trying to tell me you saw Douglas Harriman on the “Talk Back with Arlene Francis Show.”
[plug plug for Arlene!! ugh!!]
Amanda: Yes, did you see it?
Lee: Unfortunately, yes–
2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000434367Amanda: That was me he was talking about, Operation Sandstorm. Remember?
Lee: I remember, yes. We all remember.
[We see Amanda cringe here..but Lee looks directly at her with warmth here.. he doesn’t seem to hold it against her Smile Awh!]
2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000436369Amanda (quietly
): Ohhh!!!  I know.
2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000440373Lee: Now I know this is very upsetting for you, Amanda–
Amanda: Yes, it is.What are we gonna do?
  [Awh! Lee is good to her here!]

2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000449382Billy tells Amanda they are doing all they can.. Francine explains their lawyers are looking to get an injunction to stop the publication.. ( Don’t worry Amanda, Francine 2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000450383in her tribal jewellery here can also cast a spell on Captain Harriman if the lawyers can’t come through in time!! Francine do voodooooo!)
2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000455388Billy gives Amanda a big smile and tells her the agency will look after her family.. yeah right Billy.. that doesn’t work on Amanda anymore!! Moving her family is looking
2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000459959after them? At least Lee seems to understand this is actually a big ask and a 2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000460493really bad outcome for Amanda and her family.. (He hesitates and looks sideways as he explains that part.. yup.. Lee knows that would suck!)
2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000464064Amanda: oh no!! not in the middle of the school year!
 Francine: there are worse catastrophes.
Ugh! does anyone else really want to slap Francine here??!! What would she know about moving kids in the middle of the school year!!! Moooooo!!!
Poor Amanda!!! I imagine right now she would be questioning is it all worth it?! I think considering what is at stake Amanda’s level of distress is pretty reasonable – when the call comes through that the injunction has been denied, and it turns out the tribal jewellery was only a really terrible fashion statement. (drat.. )
2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000494427Amanda begs Billy to talk to Captain Harriman… and the looks on all their faces as they look at Amanda … awhhhhhh… they can’t help 2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000497430but feel for her and let her go talk to him ..
2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000500433(Lee feels for her but want Billy to say no!) Lee 2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000503436‘tells’ Billy it’s a bad idea.. Billy throws it 2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000510210back on Lee “well then you must have a better idea!”.. 2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000510343Lee just sulks and tells 2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000511711Amanda “I’ll drive.”!! and as they leave Billy and Francine have  a nice 2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000516716little laugh at Lee!!! 1ha haaaaaaa
2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000518051

Too Funny- Love to see Billy actually remind Lee (good naturedly) that He is the boss, and not the other way around!!! 1HaHaHa  Love the glare from Lee!!
2.03 DOUBLE AGENT.avi_000518451
How can the injunction be denied? Oh ok.. An agent spilling all the agency’s secrets for lots of money is no longer a crime? This makes nooooo sense!!

And with that wonderful logic still rattling through my head.. I’m going to leave it there for now… Maybe one of you can explain this to me! Hang in there.. the belt the belt is coming!!!! Winking smile byeeee and thanks for stopping by! Smile

  2. I was actually (shockingly) with Francine momentarily on this one. While I feel for Amanda, moving the kids in the middle of the school year is far better than the alternative they were discussing of being hunted down by the Russians as an agent while also being exposed as a danger to American security to the American people at large. I felt Amanda’s comment was a little silly in context and Francine was actually almost kind as she brought her back to the very serious reality they were discussing.

  4. It’s plot holes like this that make no sense. Surely when one becomes a government operative there’s generally a little piece of paper one has to sign, here in UK it’s Official Secrets Act (I know because I know someone who had to sign it due to work!). So the fact that a man can write an exposé about government spies and not be charged with breaking any laws is ludicrous. OK OK I don’t watch SMK for a dose of reality but c’mon writers you can do better than this.
    I don’t see what Lee has to gain with his comment “we all remember”, he may well look at her kindly but honestly it just smacks of kicking a dog when it’s down 😦
    At last Illy is finally standing up for himself. Am sure it won’t last 😉


    • Yeah there is. There was a fiasco about ten years ago where a woman who worked for the CIA had a huge copyright fight over whether she could publish her memoir and it sounds like they took things to an extreme and she retaliated by publishing the original memoir with the redacted pages, just so people could see what the CIA had done. So the paragraphs have huge black lines in the middle of them that you can’t read, but you can tell for certain what they’ve censored.

      And it’s not just the government. We were told when I worked customer service for a telephone company we had to be careful as well if we wrote anything (but they only meant nonfiction).


  5. “How can the injunction be denied? Oh ok.. An agent spilling all the agency’s secrets for lots of money is no longer a crime? This makes nooooo sense!!” I guess the Americans take their ‘freedom of speech” pretty durn seriously. 😉


    • It’s weird how they don’t even really explain it either!! but then.. I read the manuscript that was hidden in the microwave last night – and there’s nothing to worry about 😉 more on that coming up!!! 🙂

      Lovely to hear from you as always Cindy!! Hope you’ve enjoyed your summer!!


So what do you think??? :)
