Prepare yourselves..It’s double vision time! We find Amanda in her room, not in a hospital gown or anything.. in her clothes, wanting to get out of there! She’s talking on the phone to Dotty: Yes Mother, well tell Jamie not to scratch. [LOL gee why didn’t Dotty think of that..]
The shot widens to include Karen entering the room unnoticed behind talking Amanda..
[can anyone here the terminator noise???!!]
Amanda: alright I’m sorry and I’ll be home as soon as I can… [home? they are in a hotel yes?] …I love you too Mother. Okay, byeee..
Amanda hangs up…
and looks up to find a sourpuss version of herself!
Karen: Hello Mrs King.
[LOL dig the hand on the hip with attitude!] Whoooooooooo!!! Love the line down the centre of the screen there.. this must have been top stuff way back in the 80s before Computerised everything!
Rofl!!! the music here is hilarious!!! very weird, off kilter and errr …creative!
There goes KJ with those fabulous facial expressions!!!!
Karen gives Amanda a big smile when she can see Amanda is taking it all in..
and then in a split second – evil!!!!!
whooooo Fabulous job KJ!!! she sells it for me!!! Plastic surgery?? yeah it’s really possible! this is possible!
The scene ends here..
Poor Amanda!!! It must be insane to suddenly see someone who looks just like you walk into your room like that – Amanda must have wondered about the side effects of that gas after all! KJ does fabulous facial expressions…but I find myself thinking: if I saw my twin walk in the room – I think my brain would seriously go into another dimension!! LOL.. I guess Amanda can’t scream or there’d be problem with this plot.. again! Amanda could have fainted at the end of the scene.. then things would have made better sense. (IMHO of course! )
I couldn’t help but think though, when she looks Karen up and down all shocked, that she is finally getting a look at what she looks like in that hair..with those ear buttons… and that outfit!!! argh!!!! very scary stuff.. Seeing a dead ringer of yourself? that’s easy compared to this fashion epiphany!! 😉 Be afraid Amanda!! After forcing Karen to get her haircut like that – she is no mood to be merciful!!!
man.. does every baddie have to do that?? Von snob, Sinclair.. now Gordon.. gag..
Just what the heck could Amanda be thinking at all this?? She is asking questions about who Karen is.. so I guess she is trying to get her head around it.. whoo Gordon told us her last name! Karen Brickman lol..
Amanda: I don’t understand, I thought it was Lee you were after?
Gordon rolls his eyes: Ohhh I wanted to get Stetson Mrs King.. haaa hii.. ugh.. I even hired two gentleman very highly recommended.. then they moved in to do the job.. huh! you know what I got for their troubles? They’re both dead.
We already know this.. At least we can see when Gordon’s back is turned, Amanda is trying to untie her bindings.
Go Amanda! seems she is trying to keep Gordon talking while she works to get free.. After everything, Amanda’s brain is still in gear! [LOL it’s almost superhuman!]
Gordon explains that he had lots of pictures of Lee and Amanda was in lots of them.. and that she wasn’t hard to find. this is rather disconcerting no?? [Not everyone who can put two and two together is a friendly Russian agent trying to collaborate to stop a nuclear bomb from going off!]
Whooo this bit is semi interesting..
Gordon: From the video tape, it was clear that you and Stetson were close. So we turned Karen into you, put her in your place. Stetson drops his guard and he is deeaad!
Awh!!! Amanda looks really sad at hearing this!!! Though I love love love the idea that with Amanda-Lee’s guard is down! Awh!!
ugh.. do we need to hear again about phony Amanda killing Credle and Treloggen? yawn.. this dialogue is repetitive.. this actor playing Gordon, Dennis Lipscomb – he is listed as a ‘Special Guest Star’ – who is he?? Is he well known? He mostly has lots of scenes with KJ, are they former co-stars?? anyone?? seems to me like they’ve given him a lot of lines they didn’t need to because it’s him.. and I have no idea who he is
Amanda: Lee is Dead?
Gordon: He will be soon…
[Love the look Amanda gives him at hearing this- maybe this is her version of a ‘you’re scum!’ look! ] … You know I never intended for you to be in the middle of all this.
[BTW- this whole scene?? Not in the script at all!!!]
Cue the other worldly chimes! LOL.. Very appropriate too! I’ve never noticed this before but look at the writing in that car space in front of the entrance! It says “LAPD!” whahahaa!! That is magical and weird huh!
We’re back at the hospital and Lee has come to pick up Amanda..
I love how Lee looks to be in such a good mood to be picking up Amanda as he approaches her door – He’s excited to see her wouldn’t you say??
with his cheery knock on the door and listening at the door.. He is such a goner!!! Don’t tell me this man isn’t crazy about Amanda!!
[Look at his jaw go BJo!]
Lee knocks on the door: Amanda? It’s Lee. Is it okay to come in?
Amanda’s voice: Oh yeah sure come in Lee!
We see Lee opens the door with a big smile for Amanda.. and I can’t help but think Noooo!!! Don’t be nice to her now!! This isn’t Amanda!! ugh!!! He is so cute though, being all attentive- but it is so frustrating that he is being attentive to Karen and not Amanda! Amanda had to wait a long time to get that kind of treatment! I don’t like to see it wasted on Evil Karen!
Karen (who Lee thinks is Amanda): Hi.
I’ve got to leave it here for the moment sorry! Otherwise this post will be huge, or small and pretty darn depressing when ending with that pointless scene between Amanda and Gordon! You know, kgmhror made a great suggestion in the comments of post 9 of this episode- that maybe this was intended to be a 2 hour special – showcasing KJ as the baddie kind of thing.. I thought that was a great idea!! good one Kgmhror!! (or ‘Bink’ ) – It’s worthwhile reading comments and joining in the fun
Okay well I’ll finish up now and be back very soon with the rest of this scene –it’s one of my favourites of the episode..and when you read what I think of it- you’ll know why! byeee!
