Here comes the vette.. right on time!
and Francine in a really ugly wig – why is it sooo dark in Lee’s car?!! I bet that isn’t even Lee next to her! lol..
Sooo Weird!!! It’s like that shot was done at night.. oh I know- there was a solar eclipse between Lee turning off the road and entering the car park! yes that must be it.. ahem..
Tarzan is poised with his little remote to set off the bomb as Lee’s car pulls up next to the bomb! eek!!!
wow.. Amanda really goes for it and puts herself on the line. Awesome!!! It’s bird woman Amanda time!!!
she kicks some boxes onto Tarzan
and then jumps on him clinging on for dear life..
What do you think… do you think this is
Hmm in the end it doesn’t matter.. the baddie manages to set off the bomb when Lee and Francine were next to the sign- and it doesn’t do anything anyway..
ha haaaa… Guess that’s why they had Magnusson make the first bomb!! Tarzan’s a lousy bomb maker… Still, after Tarzan presses the button, Amanda knocks him out with a plank- gooooo Amanda!
Lee and Francine don’t know Amanda is there.. only that it was a set up, O’Keefe shoots at them through the door and runs off..
They head off inside after O’Keefe..(probably just like he wanted them to) with Amanda in pursuit too… Amanda pauses at the doorway.. she’s scared.. and says to herself:
Amanda: I’m really out of my element.
Well Amanda wasn’t that what you wanted?? Go for it Amanda!! She goes in anyway!!! that’s our brave Amanda!!!!
O’Keefe is one lousy shot.. I don’t know why Lee and Francine are bothering to hide! Why did Francine fall over? she didn’t get shot.. me confused..
How O’Keefe manages to get the better of Lee and Francine is ridiculous.. I reckon that granny with the aphids would be a better shot..
O’Keefe takes Francine hostage..
Love seeing Amanda peeking from around the side of the boxes at the scary baddie.
Reminds me of Amanda peeking around the corner at Lee’s place- and facing scary Leslie..haaaaaa!!!
Amanda sneaks up and finds Francine’s gun.. love the looks she gives when she picks it up..
It’s like she looks right at the camera fleetingly as if to say- whoa!!! this is weird!!!!
yup.. this isn’t dinners, school and groceries anymore Amanda- time to step up! [It’s okay Amanda, no little girls or nuns you need to shoot here!]
O’Keefe shows Lee he has ‘the girl’ and calls to him: Alright cowboy! drop the gun!
[Can’t he see this girl looks different? Lol he wasn’t paying much attention was he!]
Lee drops his gun… O’Keefe shoves Francine over to Lee.. LOL with that Jacket on – Lee looks to be posing for superhero of the month magazine.. Captain America?
Lee sees Amanda running behind O’Keefe between the crates..
he’s so shocked he doesn’t hide his surprise from O’Keefe!
I think for a second Lee may wonder if he just imagined it!!! Amanda is on his mind sooo much and all
(Yes Lee. Last time you saw her you were yelling at her to go home!)
O’Keefe turns quickly to check behind him but Amanda is hiding and he doesn’t see her.
Lee: you can’t get out of here. The place is surrounded!
OHHHHHHH Myyyy gosh that is flippin hilarious!!!! I am sure Lee can’t believe that just came out of his mouth! that’s Amanda’s line! whahahaahaaaaa!!!
Seems Lee is becoming a little more like Amanda
O’Keefe thinks Lee is a cop..
Lee puts his hands up and tries to stall O’Keefe from shooting him.. but O’Keefe is looking trigger happy – hurry Amanda!
Amanda stands behind O’Keefe with the gun.. Lee can see her.. act Amanda!!!!
Amanda hesitates a second..
shooting O’Keefe isn’t going to work…
Instead, Amanda lifts her arms and aims at the bad ceiling..
Lee watches wondering what the heck Amanda is doing.. gee Lee you should have been nicer to her earlier huh tee heee..
Amanda shoots at the ceiling and a net comes down
[Good thing she didn’t listen to Leatherneck about not shooting at the ceiling]
and covers O’Keefe for Lee to then give the baddie a knockout punch.
Lee looks up at what Amanda shot at, incredulous.
Francine rushes to Amanda: Oh Amanda that was great shooting! (whooaaa Francine just said something nice??? mark this day in history!!!)
Amanda: thank you Francine.
Lee: Great shooting?? great shooting? Why didn’t you just take O’Keefe out?
Amanda: well Lee, I probably would have missed him and if I didn’t shoot him, then he would probably shoot you.
Lee: Amanda!! If you didn’t think you could shoot him, what makes you think you could get the pulley???!!!!!
[Francine here seems to not really care what she shot at, she’s just glad she’s not dead! thanks to Amanda! Hey is this the first time Amanda has saved Francine’s life?? anyone?? ]
Amanda: well I just aimed at the broad side of the building and hoped for the best!
This does sort of make sense to me.. Amanda has trouble shooting at people, not inanimate objects! Only, she doesn’t explain this well to Lee.. and Heck I think she did really well – because she worked within her abilities.. she knew she couldn’t shoot O’Keefe, so she found a way around it to help anyway! I say kudos to Amanda for working within her capability here!
Lee is incredulous.. and angry!!!
Man! Lee!! she saved your flippin life! Ungrateful man!! I can’t wait to hear what you all think of this!!!
Lee is just stunned at Amanda’s explanation.. but Francine just gives a laugh.. you’ve gotta go with it!
It’s almost like Lee is surprised Amanda didn’t act like an agent here, when she is not an agent! yet!!
Lee gives Amanda another look..
what’s he thinking here people?? and why is his hair all of a sudden so flat?!!! tee heee!
Amanda continues: look I’ve been practicing.. (since this morning??!!)
I think he’s cranky because she didn’t go home like he wanted her to, and then she saved his gorgeous butt- so he has to be grateful to her as well – argh!!! what a nightmare!! so he lashes out at her in anger.. IMHO Lee owes it to Amanda!!
He better make it up to her in the tag!
How can Lee ask Amanda why she didn’t shoot O’Keefe?!! It’s Amanda, it’s obvious why she didn’t.. and earlier at the shooting range it was Lee saying ‘yeah I know’ about Amanda not wanting to shoot! Not happy with Lee here at all!!
So thank goodness Francine is quite lovely here!!! She doesn’t take back her compliment either – because like it or lump it, Amanda saved both their butts and she deserves a thank you.
Seems to me everything between them has been gathered up and tossed into the air – but where will it all land?? Where will the new limits lie? I think at this point of the episode, the full answer to these questions is up in the air.
Though because of Amanda’s actions here – I don’t see her backing down professionally in future – she’s made a break through here, she’s taken a stand, moved out of her element away from school lunches and groceries.. on to stakeout, tackling bad guys and.. shooting!! She’s progressed in her professional role here at the end of this part of the episode – regardless of whatever may be happening with Lee and Leslie or Lee and Amanda.
I see Lee as being full of strong emotions here.. very conflicted – I this is all part of his insomnia, dealing with a growing realisation of his strong feelings for Amanda that he has been denying.. and Leslie –which I guess we can discuss more fully in light of what we learn in the tag.. coming up next!
Where do you see Lee and Amanda at the moment?? Ohhh I can’t wait to hear what you all think!!! Agree? Disagree?? any ideas? suggestions? questions?? Feel free to throw out there any ideas you like – just please try not to jump ahead Bye for now!!
