Lee tells Ronson to slide the folder under the fence.. Ronson follows Lee’s order lol..
Agnes bends down and picks up the folder still looking at Ronson, to me, she looks terrified.. and seems to be pleading silently to Ronson to help her- but what can he do?!
It seems to me like she is hoping and waiting for someone to help her – and not thinking of how she can help herself..
She begins to take steps back.. not noticing the random old pipe that has suddenly appeared behind her on the ground!
Agnes trips on the stick, and everything goes nuts! Nick runs out to grab her and the folder –the sharpshooter fires, and misses.. both Nick and Agnes- I guess Lee never gave him the order to not shoot lol..
Lee: hold your fire dammit! You’ll hit the woman!
Ronson runs across the courtyard away from Nick.. but at that moment, Nick fires a shot at Ronson (why he takes the time to I don’t know).
Ronson gets hit in the shoulder..and Nick hustles Agnes into her car.. He seems to still have a use for her to stop the shooting..she’s now beginning to resist Nick..
We see Lee running toward Nick..
Amanda watches on too..
[just a gorgeous shot this!]
Nick notices Lee running towards him..
and fires a shot at him as he yells at Agnes: come on and drive! Let’s get out of here!
Nick’s shot misses Lee..
Agnes struggles to get the car into reverse while Nick screams at her to move it-
Okay Agnes is at her wits end now alright! Nick is totally terrorising her now.. 😦
Amanda runs for her car.
Lee runs to Ronson – who tells him he’s fine ‘it’s just a Nick’ – get it??!!!! that’s hilarious!!! I wonder if that was intended!! was it in the script? It sure was a Nick- Nick Cross!!
Ronson reassures Lee: go get Cross, I’ll be fine.
Agnes gets the car moving.. and Amanda pulls out and cuts off Nick and Agnes..
very risky of Amanda.. she must have been prepared for them to run into her (and she didn’t have her belt on!). Go Amanda!
At least Agnes manages to run the car into a stack of boxes and a mattress- oh there smk goes again with the random furniture appearing from nowhere haa!
Nick recovers and says to Agnes: Let’s get out of here.
Nick: give me the package.
Nick yells at her: Give me the package!!!!!!!
Agnes has had it, she cries: No!!!..
…You used me enough!!!!!!
Whooo hooo!! this is the point where Agnes chooses to fight for herself, she no longer expects anyone to rescue her here. She’s taking a stand!!!!
Agnes actually starts punching Nick as she says this – way to go Agnes!!! Not only is it fabulous that she has accepted Nick is not the man she thought he was – she has stood up for herself – and managed to get in a couple of whacks! take that Nick Cross you evil lowlife! It’s like the whole episode leads up to this moment for Agnes – I am soooo happy that she gets to have this moment!
And to top it all off? Nick cries: argh!!! Like she hurt him with those punches whahahaahaa…. She is grabbing onto those files and is not letting them go.
Coward that he is, Nick starts to run without Agnes or the folder.. Good riddance Nick Cross!
Lee comes running by Amanda telling her: Amanda stay put!!
he (stunt Lee) takes a flying leap at Nick (stunt Nick)..
Looks like someone in props is a redskins fan!
ahhhh Lee and his flying.. always cracks me up..
Phew.. Lucky they handed on a randomly placed armchair that just happened to be there.. no really- an armchair!!!
Lee and Nick exchange blows.. and Nick manages to land a few, but it’s okay there is a randomly place mattress and another couch for Lee to land on and soften his blow!! whahahaa!.. man DC is so great to leave out all it’s soft furniture for Lee..
Okay, Lee’s had enough.. a few kicks.. and Nick lands on the mattress whahahaaha…
Is it just me or is it really funny how Lee just waves his fist in Nick’s face and he knows he is defeated and looses all fight in him? One little shove would send Lee flying backwards, he’s crouched down .. it’s weird! Anyway..
Lee: All right, now it’s time to deal, Nicky. [Nicky? don’t call him that!]
Nick: What kind o’ deal you got in mind, Stetson?
Lee: The files. Hoover’s files. Now, where are they?
Nick: I threw ‘em away.
Lee: You’re not making this any easier for yourself! Now, where are they?
Nick: Okay. All right. I put ‘em in a dumpster for safekeeping… I swear to God.
You know, I’m not usually a violent person, but I think Nick gets off way too lightly here.. I wanted him to suffer more for what he had done to Agnes!!!!! When Lee punched him, he shouldn’t have landed on a mattress, he should have landed on a large spike! I loathe this guy.
And I don’t like that even when he’s been caught, he’s smiling and enjoying himself – that he gets to deprive Lee of the files too.. Ugh! I wanted Nick to be miserable…and because I loathe him so much, I can’t find him funny.
Lee reacts to Nick’s surprising disclosure.. he looks over at Amanda.. as if to say – can you believe this?!
And Amanda gives a wry kind of ‘oh boy’ reaction.
Agnes on the other hand couldn’t give a toss I think, she looks exhausted.. but she’s still clinging to that file – and maybe clinging to her power that she has taken back.. and the good job she did not letting Nick leave with it. I say kudos to Agnes.. yes she may have not reacted perfectly, she may have given Nick a chance when we would all scream noooo!!! but in the end, Agnes’ story (IMHO) is about overcoming her betrayal- and standing up for herself.. -finding her courage (I think it makes sense that finding her courage could also relate to how she lives her life in general after this experience, I like to think the character made some changes in her life for the better once this was all done..)
Lee and Amanda head to the garbage dump to try and find the files.
We see an establishing shot of a dump – to convince us we are really at a dump!
A man with a very umm robust figure rounds a corner.. and approaches Lee and Amanda – lol are we really suppose to think this is the garbage dump? looks like a warner bros car park!
Man in hard-hat: Well, how can I help you folks?
Lee: We’re looking for a dumpster.
Man in hard-hat: Well… ha haa … maybe I could scare one up! [He looks around as if to say – hey we are surrounded by them!]
Amanda: Well, you see… this particular dumpster was behind a hardware store on 46th Avenue.
Man in hard-hat (shakes his head): We get all kinds, lady.
Lee: Well, could you check it out?
Man in hard-hat: Check?
Amanda: Yes, please…
…Do you think you could just do that for us?
Man in hard-hat: Oh, boy. There ain’t no justice. I come here at the break a’ dawn,…
[here we see Lee and Amanda share an ‘ugh!’ look between them, behind the worker’s back]
…I work hard all day long;…
…they want me to check on a dumpster!
Why doesn’t Lee show him his ID? I guess they don’t want anyone to ask questions about what it is they are looking for.
Amanda sighs. The man picks up a clipboard. Lee and Amanda look in through the door, at the man.
Amanda: Havin’ any luck?
Man in hard-hat: Yeah, here it is… We picked it up at 4:26.
Amanda: Oh, great!
Man in hard-hat (to Amanda): What? Is it your wedding ring?
[Is it my imagination or does Lee quickly look at Amanda and smile when she says this?]
Man in hard-hat: Oh, my, my, my. That would be number three this week.
Amanda: Oh, really? Well, could you tell us where you dumped it?
Man in hard-hat: Oh, no problem. Right there…
(Garbage guy points to a grouping of empty dumpsters in the distance)
Lee: Yeah, but…
Amanda (at same time): But those, uh…
Lee (continues): … they’re all empty. Where… where are the contents?
Amanda (at same time): Yeah, we need to know where the stuff is, and…
Man in hard-hat: It’s there.
Garbage guy points to a huge pile of papers.. from multiple dumpsters.. so many that it is virtually impossible to find the files.
And.. Garbage guy walks off..
Lee and Amanda share a look..
The scene ends here..
I think it’s for the best the files got thrown out..and were never tracked down by the agency – too dangerous! [It’s like the one ring to rule them all! gah!!] what do you think?
I can just imagine Dr Smyth using them to further his and the agency’s interests and the agency become a very dark place indeed.. If they had been found – where would they have been stored? [with the arc of the covenant in a wooden crate in the basement of the museum maybe?!] I guess this way they can be sure no one else is going to find them either huh? Or.. maybe they should come back later that night and set the place alight to be sure [they can always blame the garbage guy and his cigar! ]
I guess we get sort of a little cover story here of Lee and Amanda engaged couple huh! I had forgotten this!
The highlight of the whole Nick/trying to catch him scene? Ronson’s line about his gunshot wound being ‘only a nick’ – that made my day! haaaa!!! Oh that and the random furniture appearing again just in time to cushion Lee’s fall in a fight What did you make of it all? I know lots of people are away busy with the holidays – so do feel free to come back to this and comment on it anytime – your views would always be welcome! I’d love to hear what everyone makes of this whole Nick/Agnes story..
Well there’s no way I’m rushing through the fabulous tag of this episode.. soooo I’m going to stop here and finish up in the next post.. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this episode so far! byeee!
