whooo whooo!! they’re holding hands?!!!! whoooooooo –notice yet again their outfits match!
Diane: Hello. /David: Hi.
Amanda: Beautiful boat.
David: Thanks. That’s a nice ketch you came in on.
Lee and Amanda: Thank you.
Amanda: Yeah, we try to make it two or three times a year. We live on board — how about you?
[OOhhh my.. did Amanda just say something? I just blanked because.. just look at these two?!
What a picture perfect pair who look like they just belong together!!! they just look like they should sail off into the sunset together ]
Diane: We’re weekending. It — it’s back to solid ground tomorrow.
Amanda: Nice to meet cha!
All: Bye-bye, Bye.
Lee and Amanda head off.. back to the Mata Hari II.. Can’t you just imagine these two characters doing this in their future together for real??!!! Enjoying the water.. each other.. meeting the neighbours.. and just.. being normal?! Okay.. though here they are not normal while being normal. [because Lee is a professional gardener who is digging haa]
Lee and Amanda are seen arriving back at the Mata Hari II- Love how Lee is excited at how things are going..
Lee: This is just perfect… (because you’re with Amanda too!) …We can settle in here and look suitably yachty, and when they’re gone tomorrow we take a peek.
[I love ‘suitably Yachty!’ hilarious!!! Great to see Lee getting a fab line of dialogue I think they also look ‘suitably coupley’!]
Amanda: You mean you want to spend the night on board?
Lee: Well, how else are we gonna keep an eye on what’s going on around here?
[my my.. just look at these two! How far they’ve come!]
Amanda: Well, no, that’s great, I just hadn’t planned on spending the night on board, that’s all.
[I didn’t notice this at first but there is quite a bit of growth here on display between them. firstly Lee doesn’t assume Amanda has a moral issue with sleeping there the night- as he had experienced previously. And he’s right! Amanda doesn’t have an issue with it – there is no awkwardness here or anxiety that things may seem improper, or that Lee might try something! for me, this speaks volumes about the level of trust and understanding that is between these two now – when I compare to previous episodes where they’ve had to stay the night – anyone like to remind us what those instances are?? I’ll leave it to you guys.. but I found this BIG- especially given what a huge fuss was made about it in previous episodes.. lol Amanda actually says it’s ‘great’! lol!!!
I just wish they weren’t going in and out of shadows and moving so fast – the images of this scene are tricky!]
Lee: Don’t worry about it – we’ll improvise. [Okay, is Lee checking out Amanda?! heaven knows it’s a perfect opportunity ]
Lee: If you have to ask the question – you won’t understand the answer.
Amanda (same time): — Question, you won’t — no, yeah, I know.
We cut to Lanz and Heck watching them from a distance…
oh yeah.. there are baddies around.. and there is a plot here.. I got sucked into the Lee and Amanda are so cute vortex.. thanks for the reminder smk!
My my.. if I didn’t know how the next scene planned out, I might wonder just how Lee is going to ‘improvise’- Amanda wonders.. but she isn’t worried.. and that makes all the difference – she knows she is safe with him and that he respects her. He’s not going to do anything to risk the closeness they share now
Actually now that I think about it, what else is different here is Amanda is not concerned about her family! This kinda fits with the whole upheaval with Dotty I’ve been seeing over the last 4 or 5 episodes.. – this time, Amanda’s fine.. she probably is comfortable making a phone call and making up a cover story.. again – real growth here!
And to finish off all this goodness? Lee does a little teasing lol.. I think Amanda’s heard that one before huh! I’m enjoying all this playful teasing..banter! yes I’ll go with that.. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts here guys! Okay short and very sweet from me.. bye!
