So Lee and Amanda finish their Cyclops lecture from TP.. and we cut back to Billy – don’t forget Billy! Billy is being injected with more of that zybillium.
Hurry Lee and Amanda!!
Love how BJo transcribed this.. I’ve gotta share it:
Billy: Uh! Or some sort of sigh/noise-thingy
[describes it perfectly! ]
Looks like Billy is in a dentist chair..
We cut back to Lee and Amanda.. more walking and talking.. so has all this happened in the one day? I guess so.. given Amanda is still in the same clothes.. it’s looking very sunny and bright again..
Lee: Uh huh?
Amanda: If um, Cyclops is involved, do you think maybe we should get some help?
[Love how Amanda poses this question- she is very careful with how she broaches this possibly tricky question]
Lee: Nope, we’re on our own…
…Dr. Smyth made that very clear…
[lol Lee realises what he’s said and quickly corrects himself]
…I’m on my own. You’re on your way home.
[whoa!!!! Just like Wizard? and Over the limit?? you still trying that one Lee?!]
Amanda: Oh no, no, no, no, no,…
…You, you need me. You really-…
Lee: Amanda listen –
Amanda: -You still need me.
Lee: -Just listen to me…
…You know, you’re lucky…
[Lee has it all wrong. He’s the lucky one – Lucky to have Amanda!!]
… You guess at answers, you use your intuition,..
[Amanda’s hair is looking longer and straighter in this scene no? seems they may have come back to reshoot this scene later…did the writers want to insert more about them being a team now? Is this in the script?? and if so.. is it similar? maybe it’s just me- sorry I don’t have time to consult the script much at the moment- feel free to and please share any goodies you find with us!! 🙂 ]
…but it’s going to take more than a sixth sense to take care of Cyclops and get onto that hidden floor.
[This doesn’t make any sense to me. Amanda isn’t saying she’ll go take care of Cyclops by herself! And was it luck Amanda found the hidden floor??!!! Nope!!!
And – Excuuuuuse me!!! Amanda has more to offer than just ‘luck’!!! and she guesses??? She does more than just ‘guess’!!! Amanda is not a monkey!! She’s not an octopus who guesses the winner of the world cup! She uses her intellect!
I see what the writers are trying to do with this – but this whole slant on things bugs me! Okay, yes Amanda does use her intuition but that is different to saying Amanda is just lucky or guesses- this takes away from what Amanda has learned and has to offer. Am I making any sense or is it just me?! ]
Amanda: Okay, look…
…I’ll supply the sixth sense…
…You get on the hidden floor…
We cut back to pensive, silent Lee.
He silently considers Amanda for a moment.
[Is it just me or does he look at her mouth here?]
We cut back to Amanda and she’s looking like she knows she’s got Lee right where she wants him haaaaa!!! [Is that about helping to find Billy?? Lee looking at her like that?? Or them being a team? I’ll go with all the above!]
Amanda adds: ….Sounds like a plan.
Love the look on Amanda’s face as she turns to walk toward the corvette.. she knows she has been a bit sneaky here haaaaa..
I never noticed this before, but this is like fair turn on the ‘you’re a cab’ moment – this time Amanda comes out on top- meanwhile Lee and Amanda are again jostling about the work and doing the whole flirty thing.. Lee smirks at Amanda as she walks to the car.
Amanda walks to the corvette and opens the door.. she looks back at grinning Lee who is still standing in the same spot – trying to work out what just happened?! Or maybe amazed at Amanda.. I like the latter option!
Amanda prompts Lee: C’mon!
[Amanda is clever.. and knows better than to argue with Lee and that stuff about luck and guesses- Instead she turns it back on Lee- you think I have intuition to offer? fine let’s use it! It’s so ironic that here is Lee saying she is lucky and guesses – when at this very moment Amanda is actually very clever- not lucky at all.. and uses her intellect to keep herself on the case. I love the playfulness between these two here but the whole luck/guessing thing pushes my cranky button!!!]
Lee starts heading to the car and laughs to himself.. Yep Lee has met his match! [which pushes my gleeful button! How about you?]
On to baddie HQ again.. the ominous black high-rise of dooooooommmmm!
It’s time for the Cyclops G-6 meeting 😉 Looks like Canaan and Daisy have arrived and brought Zorbel to address the other five Cyclops members.
In post 4, Canaan said he would call a Cyclops meeting and bring the schedule forward to tomorrow –so I’m thinking this is all still the same day- does everyone agree?
Hmm.. Lots of smoking going on.. (Must make room for new members somehow!) – Dr Smyth was a smoker too.. do you think smk could be hinting that Dr Smyth may not be a good guy?? The smoking adds to that ambiguousness..
Canaan: Gentleman… [I don’t think they are!! ] ..Shall we begin?
One of the members of Cyclops: Mr. Zorbel.
[no really.. I don’t think Gentleman qualify to be a member of Cyclops!]
LOL we see Zorbel put his briefcase on the hexagonal table.
– are we suppose to be nervous that Zorbel is going to kill them all with his lazer tazer?!
We cut to the lobby of the big bad high rise.. and Lee and Amanda are waiting to catch the elevator.
Wait a minute!!!! did you see that?!!!
That establishing shot just had Zorbel walking out of the foyer – but he’s upstairs addressing Cyclops!!! They’ve reused that shot from when we saw Zorbel leave the first time! whwhahahaa.. Bet they thought I’d have a life and not notice.. well.. I showed them! 😉 ahem!
The elevator arrives and Lee and Amanda wordlessly get in..
The elevator doors close..and so does this post! I’ll be back with more soon! Sooooo the episode is getting interesting again no?! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts! byeee!
