Lee, Brackin and Harris walk closer to the embankment to look down at Amanda laying motionless next to the river..
Brackin: Good job.
Lee: You satisfied?
Love the attitude from Lee here.. he is all bravado and gives away no concern for Amanda here. He roughly hands back the gun to Brackin.. LOL I would have preferred Lee give it back when they were back up at the car rather than standing looking down on Amanda! Brackin could put in a few more shots to make sure! eek! Lee leaves the men there, walking up the hill back to the car.
Lee shows great confidence in his skills as a shooter here.. good thing too. If Lee didn’t have confidence in his ability to come so close to shooting Amanda but not? He might not have pulled this off. Goes to show you need confidence to be an agent – I’ve been saying all along in this episode Lee is over confident of his abilities.. well here we see the opposite – he is confident for good reason.. Lee just needs to balance this confidence with a bit less of the lone wolf mentality and he’ll be an even better agent It’s all about balance!
Now Lee is out of earshot.. the baddies pow wow..
Brackin: He’ll do just fine.
Jack: So what’s this big plan of yours? Milking him for names of agents? Codes? What?
Brackin: Better. There’s a special funds shipment going to the agency today — $3,000,000 in unmarked bills to cover everything from informants to major sting operations… [whoo what about perfume and cardigans sacrificed in the line of duty? ] …Mr Stetson’s going to help us get that money.
Jack: Why didn’t you tell me about this earlier?
Well Derr Harris!! If Brackin had told you earlier then Amanda wouldn’t be able to over hear your dastardly plans! muhahahahaah!
As Brackin continues to talk, we see Amanda turning her head to listen- she’s perfectly healthy
Brackin: Don’t worry, you’ll get your cut. Soon as we get to Mill Creek Reservoir….
…Then you can see to it that Stetson joins his predecessors.
whooo they say all their evil plans within earshot of ‘Dead’ Amanda.. hey that is two weeks in a row where Amanda has been in some way ‘Dead’!! Looks like Amanda dies more than twice
Brackin gives Harris a slap on the arm and they head back up to the car.. Amanda, thank goodness, has heard everything she needs! She stays where she is though, listening for the three men to get in the car and drive off.
Amanda gets up, brushes herself off and checks out the bullet hole in her sweater. That’s not all Amanda.. it seems that tumble down the embankment has ripped out both your ear buttons! You’re suddenly not wearing any! eek!!!
Agency: Please don’t reimburse Amanda for the ear buttons!
Amanda doesn’t seem resigned here – she looks like she’s ready for action and going to do what she can to stop Lee joining ‘his predecessors’ whatever that meant.. Amanda doesn’t know-but it doesn’t sound good!
Oh yeah.. and errr maybe stopping them from getting away with agency money so she can get them to reimburse her for the wrecked cardy .. ahem..
whoo you know, Amanda wears this cardigan in Brunettes are In- such a significant episode.. is that intentional??
Back to the car..
Brackin: I know how you must feel. It’s not easy killing a woman. That half a million dollars should help ease the pain.
[Oh puke! Brackin is sounding worse and worse!]
Lee: Oh, yeah? Just where is all this money supposed to come from?
Brackin: Special funds shipment. If I remember correctly, you used to be in charge of it.
Oh purlease.. was there anything Lee wasn’t in charge of???!!!
Lee: Hmm. Well, if you know so much, why do you need me?
Brackin: The guards will be your responsibility. They know you. They trust you. You take them out, and we move in. [whoa!!! there is that trust thing again!!!! and Lee is going to go and break that trust!!]
Lee: For that I make a half a million bucks?
Brackin: I’d say that’s the least you’ll be getting.
Brackin why don’t you just tell him you are planning to kill him and give him nothing?! Do you think Lee catches on?? or is he just edgy because he isn’t sure what’s next??
Just what was Lee’s plan here?? He doesn’t know that Amanda knows anything.. just what was he thinking?
Love the look on Harris’ face here.. as Brackin makes that private little joke, about the money being the least Lee will get. I think he enjoys his job!
Amanda is trying to flag down a passing RV with no luck.. Boooo!!!! Hmm maybe it couldn’t stop because it’s the vigilant.. come on! she could use a bazooka!
Amanda keeps on walking..
Back to Washington DC for the big heist. Brackin, Jack, and Lee raid the armour truck loaded with $$$… Yep. I can sum up the sequence in one sentence..One word even: yawn!
Back again to Amanda still walking along the road.. LOL at the kooky music.. it seems a little out of place when Lee’s life is in danger.. it’s.. weird! A red sports car approaches and Amanda does her best to get it to stop.
But.. they keep going- booooo!! I mean come on.. how scary does Amanda look? not very! Boooo to the red sports car! They even give her a toot toot and cry ‘Whooooo!’ as they pass.. sorry Amanda, no time, they have a party to go to! Again, Amanda keeps walking..
The driver is preoccupied with his CB radio
and doesn’t see Amanda trying to flag him down till the last moment.
The driver removes his sunglasses and hits the brakes exclaiming: Hoooooolllyyyyyy!!!!! The Semi finally comes to a stop.
Amanda: Thank you! Could you give me a lift, please?
Driver: Little darlin, I’d be obliged to take you anywhere you want to go. Get on in here.
Amanda: Thank you.
Somehow Amanda manages to get in and they drive off.
Back at the heist.. and the action’s over.…well not quite! they’ve loaded up all the money..
Jack: That’s all of it.
Brackin pulls a gun on Lee surprising him: Your gun, Mr Stetson. Harris, you drive. [Brackin takes away Lee’s gun. Hmm.. not so in control now huh..uh oh..]
Soooo what’s the plan now Lee? err was there ever one? Honestly, the man should have died already many times! This time though, once again – he has Amanda to help him
At this stage Lee can have no idea Amanda heard Brackin’s plan and has gone for help or heard where Brackin would take Lee later. He probably thinks Amanda is trying to hitch a ride to town in her holey cardy!
Lee knows he is no longer useful, and he knows what Brackin and Harris do to agents who are no longer useful- they murder them. This is a very bad situation for Lee.. Maybe Lee hopes that like many times before – somehow Amanda will come through for him- she certainly has a history of doing that!!! Hmm.. I doubt it though…. what do you think?
Coming up next.. we get to know the Trucker.. so..
Hang on to something!!!!!
Okay I’ll finish up here for the moment.. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!! byeeeee
