9/11 Season Two, Episode 11:Three Faces of Emily-Scarecrow and Mrs King

Back at Amanda’s [whoo!  the dad and his two boys are still jogging in the neighbourhood!]
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_001723690

Lee has lost the houseboy hair..(though he is still in the lovely blue shirt!)  And Emily is dressed as her hard KGB woman again and they are reading the baddies’ message for Whatsit..
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_001726693

The $$ wanted for the airplane plans is 1.5 million bucks! The meeting place for the exchange is downtown at 5pm… Not much time says Emily:-time for drastic measures! She reaches for her KGB jacket..

Next thing, we see Tatiana/Emily enter the interrogation room again – Whatsit is cranky as anything!
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_001767734
He is demanding to be released.. and refusing to tell Emily the deposit code word that the baddies will need to be given to hand over Falcon Wing.. Seems Lee and Emily predicted this information would not be forthcoming! [Are we up to phase 4? Winking smile I think I missed phase 3! haa]
Emily: I am to veeleease you and you vill go about your business on your own?
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_001813780
Whatsit: Yes.
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_001819285
Emily: Maybe I should show you vat being on your own…
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_001821788
has alveady accomplished!!! 
[duh duh duuhhh!]
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_001827293

1laugh till cryOhhh My!!! JS is soo funny with all her facial expressions here! I am spoilt for choice! Want to laugh at this character even more? slow her down and watch her frame by frame. ROFLMAO!!!

Lee is brought in by the guards…(hilarious! Again: so over the top dramatic!! ) They reveal to Whatsit the documentary maker he met at the party was an agent. [After all everyone knows IFF is the agency 😉 ]
Emily (Tatiana): His name is Lee Shhhteyetshhon. He 2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_001859826is an American agent. He has been trailing you ever since you arrived. Veee intercepted him.

Love how she gives Whatsit a look up and down here: like she’s thinking- 2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_001865331you are such a pathetic idiot!!! Whatsit has that ‘Uh oh I’m in big trouble’ look on his face again: Excellent! Muahaha!
Tatiana walks over to Lee who glares at Whatsit.
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_001865832
Tatiana continues:  Have you been co-fort-able here, Mr. Shhhteyetshhhon?1rofl
[Ohhhh myyy!!! The way Emily says his name is too funny!!!]
Lee: Go to hell!
Emily: (to Whatsit)
You see. Like you, he defies me.
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_001877844
Emily gives one of the guards a nod.. he comes over to her side of the room.. and on her signal- he shoots Lee!
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_001894361

Speaking of over the top.. Lee’s performance here at getting shot? outstanding! Smile Very dramatic fall into the corner there Lee! You made it sooo convincing!
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_001896863


Which isn’t easy considering there is no blood and no bullet hole.. ahem.. Ahh but wait! here comes the blood! Smile now.. if only the bullet hole would appear! Winking smile
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_001901868

Love how they pick up Lee by the feet and drag him out of there!
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_001913880
( btw- does he have a special bag with outfits in it too? where did he get the tuxedo shirt from? Winking smile ) oh and check out the blood stains on the floor! good thing they covered Amanda’s floor too!! (her floor in the dining room is wood, with a white rug)

Loooove the look Emily gives shocked Whatsit as she turns to look at him now!1BIG GRIN
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_001921388
Now, you vill tell me the remaining details of your plan including the coooode verd.

Wait a minute! Lee just got shot by Clarke from the Bold and the Beautiful! ha haaaa!! took me a minute to work out where I had seen that cleft chin! hehehe

Time for a little reminder of how lovely Emily actually is- far removed from her Tatiana character! We find Emily relaxing in the kitchen, while Amanda tries to clean the fake blood from Lee’s shirt. [ hey where’s Lee? why isn’t he walking around shirtless?? !!! drat.. wasted opportunity!]
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_001942909
Ugh!! The things you people do in your business.

Hey! Wait a minute! You are in this business too! She should say ‘ Our Business’ IMHO! This doesn’t make sense after Amanda consciously decides in Brunettes Are In, that she wants to be in the business! [This is definitely before Brunettes!]

2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_001966433More girl talk! Emily got involved in the ‘business’ accidentally – just like Amanda did! Emily took on a small job.. and got hooked! just like Amanda!

2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_002009476Emily shifts a gear here.. Emily: Amanda, I’m afraid I have to ask a great favour of you.
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_002012479Amanda: Anything, Emily.
Emily: It concerns Falcon wing. I need you to meet
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_002019986with those two men from the paint store again.

2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_002022489Amanda: I’ll do it.  [ KJ is fabulous here.. you see she 2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_002030497struggles.. she shakes her head and then nods.. sweet! She’s afraid..but she’ll do it! ]
Emily: You’re a very courageous young woman. You know it’s for our two great countries.
Amanda: And for you.
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_0020324992.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_002034000

Call me crazy, but I was thinking it was obvious Amanda had to meet the baddies at 5 o’clock.. she’s the go between! Surely they weren’t thinking anyone else could do it?? Eek!
Still, it’s a very sweet moment here between these two.. confirming the bond they have with one another. I appreciate that Emily knows she is asking alot of Amanda – sometimes I get the impresssion Lee doesn’t realise how much he asks of her- but well.. maybe that is a defense mechanism of his.. so it is encouraging to see Emily be honest with Amanda – and acknowledge Amanda’s bravery ( after all you can’t acknowledge someone has been brave without also acknowledging that a great deal had been demanded, and it was to be feared). This is one of the things I love Lee saying in his proposal to Amanda in Nightcrawler.. I love that he acknowledges her bravery!!!! Anyway.. I’ll try not to get ahead of myself: this is still early days!

It’s also lovely how Amanda makes it clear: she’s doing it for their countries- but she’s also doing it for Emily. I am sure a lot of what Amanda does: is for Lee!!! [It’s in the subtext of this conversation I think- her working with Lee corresponds with her work with Emily.. ] What do you all think? have any thoughts on this little moment between Emily and Amanda?

On to Hot Shot pool hall for the five o’clock meeting.. LOL I see an army recruitment poster at the entrance – how Ironic!! considering their are two soldiers waiting to do treason inside!
A pic of Amanda entering where you can see the poster:
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_002068535

Okay! Soooo why is Lee suddenly in a completely different suit? This is the same day! He should be back in his lovely blue shirt! ..bizarre! I have a theory.. We see this same shirt for like a minute: in the tag of ‘ Car Wars’ – I think they were filming this at the same time.. but, well.. just a theory!

Anyway,  Lee, Amanda and Emily are on the street, opposite the pool hall where Amanda is meeting the two men..
Aha! another funny moment.. Lee and Emily are in the alley way prepping Amanda for her meeting with the two men. ( they say don’t worry we will be right out here- that is comforting??? what good are they out there?)
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_002050016
Amanda is all set to go in by herself.. and off she goes – no wait a second! she just has to pick up the litter first
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_002059025
and then she is on her way! the expression on Lee’s face is so funny..
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_002060527
his mouth falls open incredulous at Amanda!
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_002062529
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_002063029 and then he can’t help but share a little smile at her with Emily..
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_002064030
a cute moment.
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_002065031
Plus I love to see Emily watching Lee react to Amanda- and her smiling at how he reacts to her Smile
2.11 THE THREE FACES OF EMILY.avi_002065532

You think she is thinking these two are so cute together? [I like to think so! Smile] I wonder if that was in the script or an improvisation.. [It’s not in the script! And I’m looking at the final draft on Petra’s site]

Amanda heads into the Pool Hall. I have to laugh.. from this view it looks like the Pool Hall sells drugs – rofl! I mean.. I knew it was suppose to be seedy but isn’t that kind of overt for America? Rofl! I am just kidding! I realise the drugs sign is referring to next door: but it looks like it is advertising what the pool hall sells Winking smile

  1. This is hysterical. Seriously i have become obsessed with SMK and your observations are great!

    • Welcome Kim!!! So glad you decided to comment and say you’ve been enjoying watching smk and reading along with comments here.
      If you like- we’d love to hear your thoughts as you watch.
      The walk is currently on a pause due to my real life commitments – the next episode in the walk is Nightcrawler – which I am busting to write up and discuss! This is an indication of just how busy I am in real life that I haven’t been able to do it… but in the meantime… feel free to discuss any of the episodes covered here which are prior to Nightcrawler.
      For a few years now, the blog has not jumped ahead in the walk as I’m avoiding spoilers so I can write up the episodes very fresh- I have not watched nightcrawler and beyond in years!!

      Please do share with us the smk goodness! and… welcome!

  2. Several SMK fanfiction pieces have Emily being a big Lee/Amanda shipper. Several suggest that scuttlebutt in the spy world has Lee working with a woman who, unlike everyone else, seems to “have his number.” I’m talking first season scuttlebutt LOL. Anyway, according to one, Emily gets curious about this woman who has gotten under Lee’s skin, so next time she comes to the US, she tells Billy she wants to meet Amanda and they come up with the tour guide ruse. Very cute… Anyway, since you commented that Emily seems to think Lee and Amanda are cute together, I thought I’d share… I can’t remember the name of it, but if I ever run across it again, I’ll let you know.

    • That would be lovely thanks Karen!

      For me, I don’t have time for fan fic- I am literally hoarding them all for when I’ve finished writing the walk through and have more time [except Morley’s vignette’s I read them when I can!!!]
      Have you been reading them Karen?
      I know many here do love a good fan fic.. and write a good fan fic 🙂
      There is a thread about fan fics over at Nedlindger’s – if you find the story maybe you can post the link over there – I try to keep fan fic discussion off JWWM – other than to mention it exists and direct people to Neds.. or the discussion can wind up being about the fan fic and not the episode itself.. Hope that makes sense..
      Here’s the link for the Nedlindger’s fan fic thread – someone may have already posted a link to that story there.. or you could post there and ask if anyone can find it.. I bet others know of the story you refer to.

      And.. just in case.. here’s the link to Morley’s Vignettes thread on Nedlindger’s also!

      Enjoy!! or if you have any questions about Nedlindger’s let me know.. it is very simple to sign up to and start commenting on.. bye!


  3. What I love about the scene between Amanda and Emily discussing how she got into the spy business is the fact that Emily wasn’t a trained agent. Just like Amanda she was a civilian who got involved. If she can climb to the higher echelons of MI6 well just think where Amanda could go with her career. Proof that you can be a good agent without having trained first 😀
    Love Lee’s expression as Amanda picks up the trash first, she has such a social conscience. I can hear him thinking “only Amanda would do that”….

  4. The trash scene is one of my favorites — so Amanda! I wonder how much of an ad lib it was. Did BB and JS know KJ was going to do that? (Well, I assume on the second take they would have figured it out.) Or was the whole thing spontaneous, including their reactions? Very sweet, regardless! (Coming to a vid near you eventually!) And I’m guilty of being one of the folks who has used the Eyes Have It “Lee dying” scene … such an angsty moment. But I felt bad because it upset my goddaughter when she saw it, having (like you, Iwsod), never seen the episode. Since then she has sorta learned to go with the flow (not to mention gotten a couple years older and less naive 🙂 .

    • Hi Raffie! I wondered myself if it was an ad-lib.. You have a vid with this in it coming our way?? please post a link here if you can 🙂 I love your Vids Raffie- they are really well done.. and because I am getting to know you through smk fandom, I feel they have a lovely Raffie vibe – positive and affirming!! 🙂
      Ohh your goddaughter was sprung by the fake death scene too? well.. you can reassure her she was not alone! It works in the other direction also – once I saw a photo of Lee and Amanda’s err ‘ wedding’ in Ship of spies – on a fansite.. when I had just rediscovered the show.. I had no idea what happened to Lee and Amanda – I saw the photo and thought: wow!!! they get married!!!! doh! later to find out.. that wasn’t a real marriage! haaa..but thank goodness – they did eventually marry so I wasn’t completely guttered! There was a part of me that believed the death- but there was a part that was utterly confused: but Lee’s the hero! He can’t die??!! well… I’ve seen all the eps now.. no more nasty surprises in the fandom haaa 🙂

      I love that you said your goddaughter had learned to ‘ go with the flow’ – was that pun intentional?? or were you ummm being swept away by the flow? 😉

      • Thanks, Iwsod. Your words really touched me because that is the way I like my vids to feel. After all, that’s how the show makes me feel. Might as well “pay it forward” 🙂

        I laughed at your comment about getting temporarily duped by a fake marriage. Just the week before, I’d been watching DYTTSpy with my daughter and her boyfriend who apparently had become conditioned to accept the occasional fake marriage cover. He was positively incredulous at the DYTTSpy wedding scene. “It’s another cover, right?” “Nope.” “They’re getting married?” “Yep.” “You mean it’s for real this time??” He was sorta blind-sided by it. Guess he hadn’t seen Nightcrawler!

  5. If I recall correctly, the clip of Lee getting ‘shot’ featured prominently in the commercials advertising this episode when it was first run. I am glad it was all a set up. PHEW!
    I did appreciate Emily asking Amanda if she was willing to act as the go between. Maybe she’ll rub off on Lee and he start to appreciate Amanda more.

    • Haa Debilyn you must have watched B& B about the same time as me.. as I think Clarke was quite a while ago – I wondered if anyone would know who I was talking about when I mentioned it: so I’m really glad you knew who I mean’t! 🙂

      Hiya Cindy! why does that not surprise me! those misleading ads! I bet they were announcing Lee and Amanda’s surprise wedding for the next episode!! [ we’ll get to that soon! squeee!]
      All the poor little smk fans with childhood crushes on Lee tuning in to see how and why he gets shot.. how traumatic! I think I saw a youtube vid once where Lee ‘dies’ – and Amanda’s crying and very upset – at that stage I had only seen some season 1 episodes, maybe one season 2 and one season 3 episode so I had no idea what was going on!! [Later I learned this was ‘The eyes have it’ ]
      Here here Cindy!!! time to see Lee appreciate Amanda more! I’m ready to move on from season 1 early season 2 Lee!

  6. That was Clarke from “B&B?” Gee, I hadn’t really paid attention to that before. Too busy watching Emily and Lee have fun, I guess. He does look like he is about to bust out laughing during that whole shooting scene, though. You have to wonder (since these characters are a hoot) how many takes they had to do with these scenes. It must have been a fun day on the set.
