We find ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ have somehow made their way back to the agency.. and Lee has his car.. I would have thought Lee’s stunt would have taken more than a few hours to sort out.. lol Billy must have bailed them out teehee.. can you imagine the fan fic if Francine had? tee hee.
Lee and Amanda are in Billy’s office…
Lee: I should have never let your mother get involved.
Amanda: Oh, I can’t believe I let her get in the car.
[It’s sweet isn’t it.. they are both blaming themselves – neither is blaming the other awh!!]
Billy: OK, the police have an APB on them, as well as Mikhail Stanislav….
…Couldn’t you have at least checked the police out before you ran them off the road????
[Billy, you read my mind. If only Lee had been wearing a tux at the time.. a) it would have made me like the scene more.. and b) Billy could have said- “In a Tuxedo???!!!!”]
Lee: I didn’t want to tip them off!…
[Yes driving past and looking to see if anyone was in the backseat could have been a dead giveaway?! but umm.. good to hear your reasoning Lee!
Lol.. Billy let’s team logic down here.. from his expression he seems to concede Lee has a point! Ah well.. ]
… What’s that you said about Stanislav?
Billy: We’ve had agents on his house all day. He never returned from his meeting with Zernoff.
Amanda: Sir. My mother…..
Billy: We’ll find her and Zernoff, the police have an APB on them…. [lol ummm you just said that two seconds ago!] …Well you were right about one thing…The Metro Police do not have a car number 1017.
[Interesting to see that armed guard behind them in the bullpen patrolling… I haven’t seen that before- have you?]
Lee: Well whatever we’ve run into is quite an elaborate operation huh? What have you got on the dead man? [Given Billy said the information is worth Billions.. why are they surprised?!]
Billy: His full name is Jerry Dunlap. He worked with the Aero North Industries, in the defence weapons division. Their CEO is Sanderson North. Perhaps you’ve heard the name? Friends in high places. That’s about it. Oh, and we found traces of BZ in Zernoff’s vodka.
[Billy is just full of information! Is it just me or would Francine usually deliver at least some of this information? I guess she is still staking out Zernoff’s. rofl.. I can imagine her now – struggling to whip up something in the kitchen based on what Amanda brought for them.. and cursing the suburbs!!]
Amanda: What’s BZ?
Lee: It’s knockout drops plus. Causes disorientation, slurred speech and so on.
Amanda: You mean somebody slipped him a Huck Finn?
We see Billy react to this.. he smiles and then looks at Lee – I like that there’s affection there in this little moment
Then we see Lee react with a big smile- awh!
[I love this because it doesn’t have an ‘isn’t she an amateur’ vibe.. it has an ‘isn’t she cute’ vibe!!! what do you think??]
Lee: Auh, I think that’s Mickey Finn.
Amanda flatly: I know that.
She looks at Billy.. still serious!
lol… Actually, this sounds like something Dotty would say too.. no? [lol give up Amanda. you’re busted!]
So umm.. I’m so use to thinking Dotty is home looking after the boys.. that I wonder.. who is looking after the boys? Is Mr Doyle still looking after them? what luck they were with him when this happened.. If this was season 1 there would have been a whole subplot about how the boys were being looked after.. Lee probably would have asked Mrs Marsden to go look after them.. or heck.. Maybe Leatherneck.. he could have distracted them with that chewing gum (lol did I just suggest feeding drugs to children?! whahaha).
Back to the “debriefing center”, where Zernoff is being led to a room.
Dotty sees Lawrence thank the fake cop, and the cop leaves.
Dotty: Are you in charge here? Because if you are I want to tell you something. You are making a mockery out of American Justice.
Lawrence: Mrs.West isn’t it?
Dotty: Dorothea West and I want you to know that at this very moment, my daughter is calling-
(Dotty why don’t you demand your phone call!)
Lawrence: I understand, I understand. I know how confusing this must seem to you Mrs.West…
…Please, rest assured Dr. Zernoff is in good hands…
…You’re right, this is not an ordinary police station. But then Dr. Zernoff is not an ordinary person. As I’m sure someone with your sensitivity can understand why this um,…
…incident must be handled with utmost care…
[Oh nooo she looks like she is buying it! maybe?]
…Why don’t you have a seat?
[whoa.. Lawrence is so over the top here in his approach.. I am wondering if Dotty believes him.. she appears to- as she takes a seat like he asked.. but she may be still suspecting him. I think Dotty might know when she is being treated like an idiot.. the little condescending pat pat on the arm is too much!
plus how did they get such special treatment so quickly?! Those cops just happened to find Zernoff at that restaurant? I don’t think any of this would make sense – not even to Dotty.. mind you, Dotty has a way of making her own sense out of things doesn’t she – Will she have one of her flashes of brilliance here? or is she so overwhelmed by it all that she’s going along? I honestly have nooo idea! lol I’m probably wrong.. but don’t tell me!! I’m looking forward to seeing where Dotty goes with all this! ]
Dotty sits down in a waiting area. Lawrence walks over to a “cop” at a nearby desk.
Lawrence: Make sure she does not leave.
He looks back at Dotty.. and then walks off..
Dotty gives him a totally over the top smile and wave.. is she too playing a role here?
Is she pretending she doesn’t suspect anything when really she does? don’t tell me! 🙂
The scene finishes here.. so now seems a good time for me to finish too! I can’t wait to hear what you all think of this part of the episode.. the episode so far.. or heck.. the whole show so far!
I’ll be off the internet for the next five days at least.. so I am guessing it will be a week before I can publish a new post.. Soooo JWWM is taking a short break for a week.. and I’ll be back, refreshed and ready to go with a new post next weekend!
I’ll be able to read my emails and I’ll look forward to reading your comments but it’s unlikely I’ll be able to respond.
Maybe now is good chance to revisit an old scene or episode you’ve been wanting to get back to.. posts are always open to comment on.. Byeeeeeee!!!! Hope you are all well and avoid those Huck Finns!
