The next morning and Amanda receives a parcel from Gordon- special delivery!..
Nice touch how Gordon scrutinises Amanda’s features as her head is bent signing for the parcel!
Hmm shame Lee didn’t warn her to be careful..or tell her not to go home without him.. or tell her about the shotgun! Aie!!
I think it’s amazing Amanda stays alive [Then again I guess Lee doesn’t think Amanda is in danger because she didn’t kill Redding’s brother! 😉 ]
Amanda opens the parcel and gets a big breath full of some gas
that knocks her out,
Ohhh looky.. a pretty striped snake that looks mean,
hungry and dangerous managed to stay in the box when Amanda threw it across the room and then crawl out on cue! ta da! [when she tossed the box, it was empty.. as you would have guessed! ]
Amanda lying on the floor next to the snake.. unconscious.. Uh oh!
I always wondered what that snake was.. the script says it’s a deadly coral snake..but I found this on the net:
I’m thinking it’s a milk snake.. and non-venomous! Phew.. this could have been really scary! Nah.. I still don’t like seeing a snake crawling around eek!!! even if it is pretty!
Right on time.. Lee arrives –he goes to the front door and rings the doorbell? wha???? Why would he do that??!!! Especially after last time! so weird! Maybe he likes the idea of being able to come in through the front door.. Lee’s unconscious desire for a family and a real home is influencing him! [hey! it’s just a theory! Otherwise.. this makes no sense to me!] -I think the only reason they had Lee come to the front door again was to build the suspense.. not needed! snake on floor!!! Lee rings the doorbell again.. Snakey! go answer the door!
Well Lee walks around the back whooo now he’s starting to worry!
Oh get this! when I ripped the dvd to my computer ( so I could take pics) looks like it had a glitch of some kind at this moment.. soooo creepy! Look what I can see!!
How creepy is it!!!
It’s like it’s the drugged imaginings of Amanda at this moment! It looks like the snake is crawling on the side of Amanda’s house!
[I think I need to buy new ripping software-anyone recommend one?]
Sorry.. how could I get distracted at a swoony moment like this??
Lee sees Amanda through the side window, out of it on the floor with that snake awfully close!!!
Cue the dramatic music! Ohhh this moment is totally swoony don’t you think? Lee gives the panicked “Amanda!!!!” yell.. heroically smashes the glass on the back door and breaks in (Looks like he breaks part of the door too! He’ll probably be getting a key in the near future- LOL!)
Lee swoops in to rescue Amanda..
The fact that he somehow manages to use his special spy skills to hypnotise the snake to suddenly take on the posture of a lollypop so he can oh so conveniently put a bin over it does nothing to take away from my swooning at his rescue here.. Nice snakey!
Snake under the bin, Lee turns Amanda over gently..
Lee: Amanda. Amanda?
He gently touches her cheek..
[How’s that for a swoony pic huh!! Here!! Quick.. smell this!! It’s a scratch and sniff.. just scratch your computer screen and you should shouldn’t swoony swoon thingy!]
Amanda half raises her arm like she’s starting to come around. Yep.. attentive Lee would do it!
Lee gently: It’s okay.
Amanda very quietly: Leeeee.
[Plot holes schmot holes.. who flippin cares!]
Lee: I’m here now…
He moves her around in preparation for lifting her off the ground.
Groggy Amanda protests: no I can.. No I Lee..
Lee: come on. no I got you
Amanda moans.. she’s in no way ready to get up by herself.. Amanda you must really be out of it- or you sure wouldn’t be protesting at hitching a ride with Lee Every girl’s dream!!
not swoony enough?? more pics? thought so!
Lee picks her up and brings her over to the couch saying gently: Just relax.
Amanda: yeaahhh I”ll jussst..rest for a minute..
She fades out again..
Lee’s so gentle with her – and touches her like she is precious wouldn’t you agree??!! love the final hand on her stomach – like he is telling himself she’s okay now you can let her go!
I always knew Lee was a total charmer.. it turns out he really really is.. A snake charmer!! Still I don’t care.. Lee rescuing Amanda is so swoony he could have whistled and yelled ‘fetch the ball’ to the snake and had it take off and I would have still loved this moment.. Good Snakey!
Leaving Amanda on the couch, Lee picks up the rigged shoebox.. and sees it was some kind of trigger device..
Yep.. things are really wrong! Weird!! cue the chimey things are weird music!! [Maybe Lee is down the rabbit hole?? whoooo!! *iwsod shoves everyone out of the way* ] LOL I need to watch the wizard of oz again so I can come up with some appropriate metaphors!
Lee takes the shoebox back over to Amanda looking at her..
half to Amanda.. half to himself Lee says: this just doesn’t track I know why he wants to kill me but why you?
Lee does a pretty good job of putting the snake into the Bernstain Bears cute lunch box – Aren’t the boys a bit old for Bernstain Bears?
I like how Lee went straight to the kitchen drawer with the tongs.. think he knew where they were?
I tell ya… I feel for BB – in some of the pics of this moment.. he is workin hard!
[anyone hear a snap? could be BB’s back! ] It’s very difficult to lift a grown person off the ground like that- even if she is as tiny as KJ! So swoony though! Glad we get to enjoy it 🙂
The baddies watch from their car out on the street.. Hmmm that lady in the brown coat must be in on it..
…she walked past when the baddie Gordon did his special delivery in the first place [see the first pic in this post if you don’t believe me]..Gordon and Karen are watching what’s going on.. Karen notes ‘Stetson’s car’ – lol who could miss it? Gordon: okay so he got here ahead of us.
[Wait! Gordon just delivered a parcel to Amanda in a mailman’s uniform..a minute ago!! and here he is now, not in that uniform, complaining that Lee arrived before they did?? Ohhh boy. ]
Well. Gordon has an idea!
Gordon: Wait a minute! That’s even easier! We don’t have to worry about getting rid of the King woman’s body. We’ll take care of them right here! [It is funny how Gordon is suddenly so blood thirsty! He’s gleeful! LOL.. welcome to the dark side Gordon!! 🙂 ]
Karen is amused by this suggestion .. and turns to watch as Lee accompanies Amanda from her house, and to his car.. whoa! that lady is walking by again?? that’s three times! LOL!
Lee leads Amanda to his car as she walks by and awhhhhh opens the door for her..
…You’re never going to get a cleaner shot at him!!!!
[I do like Lee’s ‘pose’ in this shot.. could almost be a car ad!! LOL thought maybe not with the Bernstain Bears lunchbox.. mixed messages! 😉 ]
Karen’s not having it.. with witnesses it’s a dumb idea [even for her!].. and so she puts Gordon in his place.
Karen: You might want to go back to prison but I’m not going with you alright! I will tell you when I will do it.
They watch Lee and Amanda drive off and follow them..
And I shall finish up there for the moment..
I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts! [That is if you have any after all those swoony pics!! Hmm you might want to take some time to recover and then respond! 🙂 ] I don’t know that we’ve ever heard Lee speak so gently to Amanda.. awh.. I do hope she can remember it A little reminiscent of Service Above and Beyond maybe? maybe just a tiny bit..
Things are really getting good in this episode huh!!!! Do share your thoughts!!! byeeee
