Back to the high rise construction site.. looks like Gordon has been rambling on the whole time.. LOL!
We re-join Amanda and Gordon with Gordon in midsentence: –if you’d just stayed on that camping trip-
Gordon’s head snaps around as he notices the noise of Lee’s car arriving..
Absentmindedly Gordon finishes his sentence: –it wouldn’t be necessary to kill you too.
I must say.. Amanda must be getting use to hearing she has to die she seems to cope quite well! I like to think it’s because she knows Lee is coming and if he is alive, then they have hope!
We see the vette pull up and Lee and Karen get out. Still holding Lee at gun point, Karen directs him to start climbing the stairs.. LOL yes love the shot to remind us of how oh so very very high the building is!!
Only, when Lee and Karen reach the level where Gordon and Amanda are- they are not at all out of breath!
Love the look Lee gives Karen as she gives him a shove.. he’s had enough of being held at gun point tee heee..
Gordon calls out: I’m over here Stetson!
[rofl.. it’s like he is saying- here is the moment you’ve been waiting for Stetson! I’m here!! but Lee? couldn’t care less about Gordon! LOL!]
We see Gordon emerge from behind some lumber, he’s pushing Amanda along from behind [whooo good thing he doesn’t notice she’s been working on those ropes!]
Gordon ‘puts’ Amanda to one side.. and takes centre stage for his final showdown with Lee Stetson!
I think Lee is utterly relieved to see Amanda.. but he directs his attention to Gordon – don’t want to show those baddies how important Amanda really is to him! [If they really got it? Amanda wouldn’t be to one side.. she’d be in the middle of Gordon’s intended drama!]
Lee as usual tries not to upset the baddie: Still using someone else to do your dirty work huh Redding?! [LOL! Lee is either really stupid.. or has a lot of guts – remember? 😉 ]
Note here: Karen is standing behind Lee pointing the gun at him.. see her over his right shoulder?? [why? you’ll see!!]
Lee continues: Just like your brother Lloyd?!
Gordon: Shut up! I don’t want to hear you mention my brother’s name.
[This is where we see Amanda starts rubbing her bindings on the post behind her.. I think Lee does have a lot of guts – and he’s doing it on purpose to enable Amanda to get her ropes untied]
Lee quickly: Why not?!! isn’t that what all this is about huh??…
… Treloggen! [LOL the way Lee says it, it sounds like Trelargen!] Credle! Me??!!
Gordon: I’ve got a long memory Stetson [oh boy.. Gordon truly is pathetic.. but feel free to keep going Gordon.. give Amanda time to get her ropes cut!]
Lee: yeahh.. and someone to pull the hammer down for you.
At this, Karen storms over next to Gordon- rofl! for a second both Amanda’s are in the same frame.. but suddenly the real Amanda has turned her face very interesting to see how they managed all this! [The lighting in this scene is pretty bad.. apologies if my pics are not brilliant boo]
Karen, still aiming the gun at Lee asks Gordon: Do you want to do it? Or do you want to watch?
[ I think she’s tired of Gordon and wants this job over with ]
Gordon: no I want to watch. [wimp!]
We cut back to Lee reacting – only over his right shoulder, you can still see Karen magically behind him rofl!! I think they’ve just reused shots!
We see Amanda is working hard on those bindings furiously- hurry Amanda!!
as Gordon continues: No I want you to go real slow.
[Snap! Amanda’s bindings are cut!!! Just in time I’d say.. quietly she manoeuvres around to the wooden plank. ]
Gordon: Let’s start with the Kneecap.
Karen aims her gun..
We see Lee is calmly waiting.. LOL.. and there is Karen still behind him over his right shoulder! whahaahaa!!! [no wonder he’s so calm 😉 ]
They must have run out of reaction shots from Lee that day or something! but the fuzzy Amanda hair can be seen plain as day!
Then! we cut to Amanda as she pushes on a wooden plank- miraculously positioned in such a way that it works like a seesaw, the other side lifts and knocks the gun out of Karen’s hand!
What luck! and sooooo the fight begins!
I see when Karen’s gun goes flying she raises her arm and you can see under her top – she’s wearing some kind of a harness! LOL.. must have been for the hanging scene that’s coming..
The gun goes flying and lands next to the lovely dirt free ledge.. Karen and Amanda struggle over the gun. [LOL I think there are now four Amandas! as they struggle near the edge- I think that’s two stunt women! ha!]
then they suddenly both fall over the side of the ledge..
LOL! It looks so staged!! but.. who cares right?! All the plot holes have led to this one big moment! Both Amandas hanging over the ledge!! argh!!!!
Lee knocks out Gordon (I won’t even insult it by calling it a fight.. Gordon? fight?! wimp!)
Lee hears Amanda’s cries: Help me Lee I’m slipping!!!!
He looks up and sees what’s happened.. was that Amanda?? or the AntiAmanda????!!!
He rushes over yelling: hold on!
Well, Lee gets the shock of his life when he gets to that ledge!
Which one is Amanda???!!!
[Looky! another line down the screen.. I guess this is a three split?? but- suddenly the ledge is covered in dirt! ]
Left Amanda cries: Leeee!!! Help me!!! She tried to kill me!!!
Right Amanda looks on silently..
Lee looks between them confused.. and the pressure is on!!! Both women are dangling and the whole of this at times ridiculous plot comes down to this one moment of truth- Will he know which is the true Amanda?? and.. how will he know?? Because it’s not based on anything superficial!! He can only save one- because if he saves the wrong ‘Amanda’ Karen isn’t going to let him rescue the true Amanda!
Lee is struggling here: Hold on. Just. Just hold on!!! [err literally and figuratively! give him a minute to figure this out!!! only.. they might not have a minute!]
Check out those fingers!!!
I saw whiter knuckles on Amanda when she was clinging to the windowsill as Lee kissed her in Sudden Death – you know.. during that ‘in depth’ interview haaaa..
Neither Amanda is talking..
Lee is still scrutinising the Amandas and thinking.. and then.. Right Amanda squeezes her eyes shut and says to herself in despair: Ohhhh My gosh!!!!!!
Immediately! A light goes on in Lee’s eyes!!!
This man knows Amanda soooo well he knows what her final words could be.. and it immediately rings true- the Amanda on the right is the ‘Right Amanda’!
Lee immediately gets down to grab Amanda and help her up.
What an insanely brilliant moment!!
That is a huge fall- Kudos to the stunt woman!!! I can’t see a parachute!!
I need to stop here sadly.. though stopping here means I can take my time on the next fabulous moments between Lee and Amanda!!! Frame by frame sooo much smk goodness!!!! No need to rush right??!!
So I’ll finish up this post with a little tribute – to mark the passing of the positively awful (but extremely attractive 😉 ) psychopath: Karen Brinkman. She managed to get Treloggen and Credle.. but Lee? No chance!!! She was no match for Lee and Amanda 🙂
Karen.. this one’s dedicated to you!
‘Crying icicles instead of tears’ ?? That’s Shakespeare!! and.. sounds like something Karen would do
I’ll aim to post the next part asap guys! Hang in there!!! Sooooo good!!! and sooooo worth the wait!!! As always- I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts!!!!!!!!
