I have just finished watching Season 1 in the recommended episode order, which was great, but I can’t find the order for Season 2. Could someone please let me know how I find it.
Hi Carol – if you look at Neds, there is an episode order thread in SMK talk. The first couple of pages discuss the season two episode order. Also if you look at Petra’s SMK-land web-site, she has her own alternate season two order (and alternate orders for other seasons). Hope you enjoy Lee’s season two hairstyle 🙂
And season 2 tuxedo.. whooooo
Hello Carol! glad you liked the order!
the JWWM post on the Season 2 Episode order is HERE
(you’ll see one of the categories is ‘episode order’ so you can also find JWWM posts about episode order specifically under this category)
Hope this helps!
Yeah, sorry I don’t mean to jump ahead. I mentioned it on the season 2 post cause that’s when I really started to notice how ridiculous I think it is as season 2 is when she officially starts working at IFF and she would have coworkes. I know they aren’t officially socializing in season 2, but instead of Lee popping up in the back window couldn’t he just knock on the door and say he needs to talk to Amanda about work. It’s not really respecting her private life any more to show up at her house and lurk around in the back yard.
Again I am really sorry I Mentioned it still going on is season three. Didn’t mean to give anything away and I’ll let it go.
It’s all good Misty! I make slips into the future at times too.. and kick myself! We’ll get there together! 🙂
I was thinking maybe once this walk is done – we should do the walk again – only in the completely revised order – and being able to refer to future episodes.. again it would be a different perspective!
I like to not jump ahead because it helps me understand where the character is at – as they don’t know what we the audience know having seen the whole show – and they are fictional so what do they know anyway right? rofl!!! tee hee.. well you know what I mean! I’ve also found not looking forward encourages us to look back on previous episodes – and take into consideration things the characters have already experienced and which could inform the current episode being discussed.
All good Misty – I really am glad you found us! 🙂
You know what I never understood about season 2 and season 3 for that matter. By season 2 Amanda has given up the whole I take care of pets and plants cover and has told her mom she works for IFF. Why does Lee still lurk around in her back yard and the two them have to hide it every time they are together. Why doesn’t Amanda just introduce him as a coworker. Dotty knows Lee Stetson exists once they start talking on the phone why not just let her meet the person. It seems to me that would be less suspicious then Amanda sneaking out in the back yard all the time and having this mysterious co-worker Dotty never gets to see. I know one look at Lee and Dotty would immediately start pushing Amanda to get with him, but I would think Amanda could handle that better than all the sneaking around with him. Then again maybe not. Maybe having to deal with her mother would make it harder for Amanda to deal with her feelings for Lee and that’s more terrifying than anything. That’s all that I could think of. I use to think maybe Amanda didn’t want Lee around her family because then baddies could connect Lee to them, but as we continuously throughout season 2 pretty much everyone has connected Amanda to Lee anyway which already indirectly exposes her family. How much more would they be exposed by just getting to meet him.

Hiya Misty- ahhhh you have such a questioning mind!!! I love it! 🙂
I would direct this train of thought over to Nedlindger’s – Just Walk With Me aims to not jump ahead – the purpose of the blog is to walk through the episodes and experience the journey along with the characters – rather than discussing themes which are ahead for us in the series – these great questions of yours will come up eventually in the walk – so feel free to raise them later here.
For now though, as we are up to Burn Out -I think we could say Amanda doesn’t introduce Lee because Lee and Amanda don’t really see each other much socially at this stage – or LOL if they do they won’t call it that.. that doesn’t come till later – which I don’t want to get to now LOL! But I think they have separate private lives – Lee and his ladies.. etc. You know how Amanda was apologetic for coming to his apartment at all in A little sex a little scandal? they aren’t at that stage where they are truly melding their social lives..these are just my ideas on this topic you raised..
Following with the episodes and not jumping ahead has it’s frustrations.. but it offers a unique view of the show – if you’d like to discuss this Lee/Dotty idea from a more general point of view moving beyond Burn Out and where we are up to – I’d suggest you head over to Nedlindger’s and start a thread there about it- feel free to! 🙂 The link is in the links section. So glad you found us here Misty! 🙂
