We left a very worried Lee asking of Amanda..
Lee: Where the hell is she?
We don’t have to wait for long to find out! Next thing we see is the gang arriving back home.[I don’t know why Lee wasn’t parked out front watching! :)]
Dotty is relieved to be home: Ohhhh Home!!!!
Love how Amanda gets out of the car, closes her door.. then reopens it to get the keys out – she needs them to open the boot (trunk!) – I love how they leave stuff in like that.. makes it feel more natural! And KJ just stays in character and goes with it Ugh… I’m over complaining Phillip! He’s cross with Jamie for falling in poison ivy..
Jamie: I didn’t fall, I tripped! Then I fell!
LOL well that clears things up! what’s the difference??!!
Amanda: we came home because your brother is very uncomfortable…
Jamie: and because nobody at the camp’d come anywhere near me!
Phillip: that’s cos your contagious that’s why!
Jamie lunges at Phillip threatening to touch him! haaaa is it naughty of me that I enjoy seeing Jamie get back at Phillip?
Dotty: Oh we’re probably all going to get it you know.
Amanda’s on the job!: we won’t get it. Not if we take the proper precautions, (to the boys) now get inside.
Dotty: I think forgetting this camping business is the dandiest precaution!
Amanda: Oh well mother I don’t know why you don’t like it. I mean Phillip likes it, Jamie likes it. I like it..
Both of them struggle with what they are carrying here for a moment..
Dotty: Let me tell you something, if God had wanted us to live outside, he would not have created architects!
Love it! That is such a great Dotty line!!!
I think Dotty doesn’t have to like it if everyone else does.. I don’t understand why Dotty doesn’t say no! Oh well.. if she had stayed home she might have wondered about the shotgun on her stairs.. ahem..
whoooo We see Karen drive past and find the gang are home.. suffer! She just stops in the middle of the road!! LOL Love the OTT baddie music as she stops to look!
Uh oh… Back to baddie HQ.. Gordon’s not happy with Karen’s work.. surely he wasn’t hovering like this when she set up Credle or Treloggen?? he should leave her to it (and stop annoying me!) ..
Karen: you’ll get your money’s worth.
[wait.. she’s still wearing those clothes?? the ones she arrived at Amanda’s place in yesterday? hmmm..]
Gordon: you missed Stetson!
Karen: I won’t miss him the next time!
Gordon: next time?? I mean you had him! why didn’t you stay and finish the job??
[I agree with Gordon.. dumb!]
Karen: because when I kill him, I want to make damn sure I can walk away from it.
[nope.. doesn’t make sense to me.. okay to kill Credle and Treloggen to their faces.. but not Lee? ugh.. ]
Karen: Look, Amanda King whistles he comes running.
Aha! Now this is interesting!! Do we all think this is true? 😉 I do.. I think he’s probably been like that since he met her – only nowadays he doesn’t seem to mind so much 🙂
Gordon has calmed down now: Oh if only she hadn’t come home.
Karen: Well she came home! Sooo we’ll have to get rid of her.
Karen: I can’t have two of us walking around in the same house can I? and that’s the only place that I can be sure I can make contact with Stetson.
[Oh boy.. don’t get me started on this one.. you know I think this is ridiculous! Amanda has to die? why not just stake out her place and wait till Lee shows up and then follow him? Aie!!
All this also beg the question: how did she initially make contact with Credle and Treloggen?? We know she staged a fake accidental meeting to catch up with Credle.. but how did she find him in the first place? ]
Karen: I’m not going to get rid of her. I’m going to get rid of Lee Stetson. You take care of Mrs King.
Gordon doesn’t want to get his hands dirty.. but they already are anyway if you ask me! He sees he has no choice..
Back to the King home..
Hey I noticed the thing above the door is the flat one again.. that’s so weird! BJo I’m always looking for that weird eagle now!
Earlier it looked like this :
on with the episode..
Dotty is in a tizz! She comes rushing into the kitchen..
they both have gloved hands..
Dotty has checked her jewellery it’s all there.. so they think it was a break in huh..
Dotty: I can’t believe this actually happened! …When you read about things like that.. but to know that somebody was here…
… this house.. ugh!!! it makes me feel so violated!
[whoa.. so ironic given someone came and not only took over the house, but Amanda’s identity!! Yes all this watching, bugging etc is very creepy!]
Amanda: I know mother.
Dotty: But, it’s alright, I mean we’ve got to remember.. nothing’s stolen! and nobody’s hurt! .. but.. they were here..
[ At this Lee pops up in the window behind Dotty!! He looks relieved!]
..why don’t you call the police?
Amanda: they’re on their way mother.
Wow.. dotty is going nuts!!!
Dotty: oh that’s good!…
[Amanda finally sees Lee in the window]
…Your grandmother’s silver!!!
Dotty takes off in a panic to check the silver!!! Lee is just frowning in plain view in the kitchen window! .. he motions to Amanda to come out and she motions for him to get down!
Can you imagine if Dotty had seen Lee? in the state she was in? I think she might have fainted!! haaa.. poor Dotty!
Yippeeee Lee popping up in the window.. just like old times!! 🙂 I miss that! and Amanda is flapping her arms around like crazy to get rid of him! hehehee..
Amanda heads outside.. gloves and all!
Lee gets in fast!: Amanda!…
… Now you listen to me, I want you to move your mother and the kids to a hotel tonight…
… It’s me he’s after and I don’t want any of you in the middle of it.
Lee looks so swoony here.. I’m annoyed at the low light here! Oh well..
Lee doesn’t even ask her what happened on the phone this morning.. which is strange given he thought someone had been feeding her what to say! weird!
Amanda: Lee, I don’t know what you’re talking about.
… I’m talking about our phone conversation.
Amanda: what phone conversation?
Lee: this afternoon!
Amanda: this after- I didn’t talk to you on the phone this afternoon.
Lee: what do you mean you didn’t talk to me this afternoon what wa-
Amanda: I mean you didn’t talk to me because I didn’t talk to you!!
Lee: wait a second wait a second…
… this is getting way out of hand…
Alright. Now look.…
.. Get everyone to a hotel and meet me back here tomorrow morning and we will go through this house and see what we can find.
Is it just me or does it not seem right that they don’t touch each other here because of Amanda’s gloves?? usually Lee would have touched her hand or grabbed her arms.. kind of underlines that things are off balance I guess…
So Amanda and her family are heading straight to a hotel for the night… umm.. the police were on their way- weren’t they?
Lee is surprised that Amanda doesn’t know what he’s talking about.. hmmm- Lee is one confused man right now – looking forward to hearing what you all think!
He didn’t even see Karen and he’s this confused!! he just heard here voice!!LOL Imagine if he’d see her
Oh wait.. Lee!! It could be the terminator!!!! they can imitate voices!! Were there dogs barking in the background??! Oh nooo he’ll never stop until Lee is dead!!!! tee hee..
At least there is one thing Lee isn’t confused about .. he finishes reminding Amanda to take her family and go to a hotel tonight.. awh… I love that he gets control of his temper here and doesn’t take out his frustrations and fear on Amanda! Such progress in our Lee! Isn’t his concern adorable?!
Soooo this scene in the episode ends there.. but the script has this scene playing out differently.. Ah – going back to the scene at IFF, I forgot to mention, in the script- Lee tells Billy and Francine that Amanda had accidentally said the name Gordon on the phone – another clue that it was Gordon Redding behind it.
So here in this scene..in the script when Amanda comes outside-
Lee immediately jumps in with: Amanda, thank God you’re all right. When’s the last time you talked to Gordon ?
[See now it makes sense that he thought Amanda knew!! Because of the name.. they should have left it!]
Amanda responds: I don’t know. I guess.. yesterday morning.
Lee: okay, if he tries to contact you tonight, I’ll be right here.
Amanda: here. On the patio.
[Remind anyone of Filming Raul???!!!]
Lee: You can all move to a hotel in the morning. It’s me he’s after. I just don’t want you getting caught in the middle. The way I figure it, he didn’t know where to find me.. but, we’ve been seen together a lot [hooo haaa! ] he used you as a contact. How the hell did you meet him anyway?
[This all makes more sense to me! you?? ]
Amanda: Lee, I don’t know what you’re talking about.
Lee: Gordon! I’m talking about Gordon!
Amanda: well, don’t get mad. What do you mean he’s after you? why?
Lee: I killed his brother.
Amanda: ohhh Lee.. you killed Gilbert’s uncle??
[rofl!! I think this sounds fun! I really prefer the original script version!]
At this they both stare at each other..
They both simultaneously say: Are we talking about-
Lee: -Gordon Redding
Amanda: -Gordon Fielding
[yes that name again!!]
Lee: It’s been that kind of a day.
Amanda: I know what you mean. Jamie fell into that patch of poison ivy (script says sumac) and when we got home..
Lee: that wasn’t you I talked to on the phone. It sounded just like you.
Amanda: you mean it wasn’t the agency that used my house? [ Hmm interesting!! Is that why she didn’t seem half as upset as Dotty in the actual episode??] I thought they were awfully messy and I couldn’t see why they’d be going through my letters, but.. Lee.. who was it?
Lee: I don’t know. But this is getting way out of hand. You move into that hotel in the morning. As soon as you’re out. I’ll go through the house see what I can find.
[I think this ‘No’ is important for later!]
Lee: it’s too dangerous for you to..
Amanda: we’ll go to the hotel. Fine.. but I’ll go through the house with you… There are personal things and.. well, I just don’t want someone opening drawers and looking through closets without me. That’s the only way I’ll agree to it.
Lee looks at her, sees she’s determined.
Lee: eleven o’clock?
Amanda: eleven o’clock.
And the scripted scene ends there.. Well.. I really liked this….and I find reading this has helped me make sense of the episode we got – so I’m glad we have access to it.. and I can get on with enjoying the episode 😆 Soooo I went to the trouble of typing it up.. [even though I shouldn’t spending too much time on this right now! LOL yes one of those tempting rabbit holes we’ve been discussing!!]
BTW- is there a wizard of oz version of a rabbit hole?? because we are mixing our fairy tales here! Oh and I nearly forgot.. Lee and Amanda finally caught up with each other 24 minutes into this episode!! that’s half way through!!!!! that might be a record! even for the last 4 eps in season 4?! I’m not going to check cos I’m holding off seeing them again till we get to them now!
Okay gotta go.. I’m really looking forward to hearing your views on this- Byeeeeee!
