It’s weird to say goodbye after walking through The Wrong Way Home for so long!!! I guess as Amanda was saying.. we want to go forward – ‘It’s going to be a great future’ 🙂

Soooo it’s night time.. Love the night shots of Washington.. I think the Jefferson Memorial is my fave.. what’s yours?
Uh oh.. things are getting weirder.. a guy we don’t know walking down a dark street alone.. why we don’t know..
uh oh.. now there’s a boring car following a guy we don’t know.. Scary music..
The car has no number plate – vehicle patrol!!! Arrest this car!
The guy starts running..
Then, the guy starts climbing fences and walls to get away.. but boring car finds him,
and squashes guy we don’t know against a wall we don’t know 😉 ..
(So obedient of him to stop running and climbing walls and just let the car squash him!) 😆
I gotta say.. I was too busy laughing at the unrealistic violence to be bothered.. ahhh smk I love how it doesn’t really go for the super real violence!
Next thing.. we are at the Foxrun Motel.. and the corvette is parked out front..
Have we seen this hotel exterior before? I have no time to look sadly.. but I’m wondering if it was used in Double Agent.. or A relative situation- anyone want to take this up? feel free to go for it..
We find Lee inside standing at a door and gets out a lock pick..
he starts working on the lock. Lee opens the door part way, but sees something that makes him pause (in that super swoony way that he does 😉 ) …
He gets out his gun.. his super spy senses on high alert.. and my super swoony swoon swoons threaten to kick in! awh yeah!
Man.. he looks good!
We cut to a view from inside the room as Lee opens the door wider calling out: Eddie?
What a mess! Lee walks in looking concerned..
and puts his gun away?! lol Umm Lee.. you didn’t check the bathroom! He just walks on in there with his gun put away haaaaa..
Lee takes the top off the toilet tank thingy.. (lol that camera view is interesting.. is there no wall behind the toilet?! Hey maybe this shot is looking in a mirror?)
Lee pulls on a string..
and out comes a plastic bag with something in it..what I don’t know..
LOL why do I have visions of Lee finding a goldfish in there? KC- you’ve got a lot to answer for with those memes of yours! tee hee.. The scene ends here.
We move on to IFF..
Billy : We developed the negatives Eddie left for you in the tank…
[Ohhhh negatives.. okay!]
…and came up with pictures of a chemist’s lab.
Billy: What’s it mean?
Wider, we find Lee and Francine are in Billy’s office.
Francine: Ah, what’s the ‘colossus’?
[Didn’t someone order a Colossus from Rhodes or something in Lost and Found?]
Lee: That’s what I’m trying to figure out.
[That and.. what is Francine wearing??!!!! gah!!! ]
Francine: Well, Eddie Le Grande was never easy to figure out.
Billy: He was a flake, pure and simple, that’s why we retired him.
Francine: Well, apparently, he was a better hamburger salesman than he was an agent. [go figure.. they don’t have the same skills?!]
[Distracted!!! – Whoa!!!! those earrings!!! That weaving on her jumper!!! Is it a hidden weapon? back up restraints?!]
…It says here when he left DC he bought a Marvin’s stand in Boise…
[At hearing this.. Lee gives a super intense look. rofl.. too funny! like that’s super suspicious?! who or what is Marvin? Oh wait.. Francine said it was hamburgers.. it’s coming back.. a little bit! Honestly, I barely remember this one!]
…He was named franchisee of the year, twice, and promoted to regional sales manager. That is a pretty big cheeseburger.
Billy: Oh, please.
[Love Billy’s look at Francine.. enough with the super cheesy wise cracks Francine – okay.. couldn’t resist a pun of my own!]
Lee: About a month ago—out of the blue—Eddie started calling me, asking for a meeting. Well, I had a hundred things to do, so I put him on the bottom of the pile.
[I imagine one of them being helping Amanda’s ex and her family!]
Lee: Well, yesterday afternoon, he left this message on my machine at home. (Lee plays the tape)
Eddie (on tape): Scarecrow, it’s Eddie. It’s about six pm and I’m tired of leaving messages at work. Listen carefully… Red Robin’s on the wing, ol’ buddy, and he’s a real Colossus, this one…
…Got a big trip ahead of him—thousands of miles maybe—and it could be bad for his health…
(Lee’s jaw is grinding away.. Scarecrow’s worried!)
…Fatal, maybe. I think someone should clip his wings. Call me: the Foxrun Motel, Reston. (Lee stops the tape.)
Billy: What’s he talking about?
Lee: It’s a code we had worked out between us… [rofl a code just between Lee and Eddie? How many codes does Lee make up between contacts?! too funny! And.. maybe Lee should have told Billy and Francine about the code before they listened to the tape ]
…Red Robin translates as red alert and thousands of miles means thousands of people. [so who’s the bird?!]
Francine: And what about Colossus?
Lee: I don’t know. Whoever, or whatever, it is, could kill thousands of people and Eddie’s lying in a hospital—in a coma—because of it. [Ohhh? he’s not dead?]
Man.. I’ve solved this one already! It’s fast food that’s gonna kill thousands of people.. and put Eddie in hospital- no?
Billy: The police report says it was an accident.
[the police are sttooooopid]
Lee: They trashed his hotel room, Billy,…
(They all move about the room..)
…and tried to shove a radiator down his throat…
(the police did that?! lol.. okay.. probably the baddie who ran Eddie over..but it could have been an interesting story if it was the police! 😉 )
[Okay.. with those baggy trousers and the pleated waist.. I think this is a seriously tragic look on Francine!!]
…Now, he was on to something, and someone was on to him.
Billy: Yeah, Scarecrow, but who? What? Why?
[Umm call me crazy Billy but usually it’s because you don’t know those things that you actually Ahhh umm you know.. like umm investigate!]
Lee (sighs): All right.
(Lee presses play on the tape to repeat part of the message)
Eddie (on tape): Thousands of miles, maybe, and it could be bad for his health. Fatal, maybe.
(Lee stops the tape.)
Lee: He was in DC on a weekend seminar for prospective Marvin’s buyers. I wanna know what’s going on… From the inside.
[Yeah!! Do they use filler?! What is filler? and.. do we want to know what is filler? 😉
whooo for me this reminds me of Connie Beth cosmetics!]
Billy: Okay, but you’ll need backup.
..At hearing this, Francine walks up and joins them.. fully expecting that back up to be her. (LOL look at her hands in the pic below.. she seems to be praying )
Lee: I’ve got just the person.
Love how Billy smiles here!!! He knows what’s coming I think! While Francine looks expectantly at Lee. (Oh gosh.. it’s funny, but I feel sorry for Francine here.. come on! Let her get out in the field a bit Billy! doesn’t need to be with Lee..)
Lee puts his hand on Francine’s arm
Lee: Excuse me.
(Lee walks behind her out of the room)
Billy smiles… a lot!
Francine stands with her mouth open, then looks at Billy.
Billy notices Francine is looking at him..
He breaks off his smile, clears his throat, and walks back to behind his desk.
No words are spoken.. I love it.. even Francine knows that Lee is off to get Amanda to work with him on this case once she knows he isn’t wanting her!! The scene ends here..
Do you think Billy knew straight away Lee wasn’t thinking of Francine? lol.. Poor Francine.. anyone else feel sorry for her? lol..
She’s yet to accept the new reality – Amanda is well and truly Lee’s partner!!! squeeee! and all this while wearing that hideous outfit!! she’s having a baaaad day!
Can’t wait to see Lee and Amanda together again and see what they are like after Wrong Way Home!! And that tag!!! Anyone else not seen this ep in ages?? Anyone not watching ahead? If just me- oh well. just keep in mind as I ramble that I don’t remember what’s ahead and I’m probably a bit behind! lol!! I can’t wait to hear from you guys! Anyone loving Francine’s outfit?!
Okay.. on the plus side.. I will say – I like Francine’s hair here! Byeeee!
