The next day and we find Billy walking out of his office with Lee and Francine behind him, leading them through the bullpen. Think I can get a clear image of the three of them? ugh.. nope.
Billy: With Durran in town, I’m bumping this up to an Alpha Two alert, effective immediately.
[Alpha two?! Love this lingo ]
Lee: You think he’s connected to that van?
[lol Lee! this is smk.. If you happened to hear about Durran then yep, it’s Durran! lol..]
Billy: And the G-S gas. He’s planning a hit, probably in DC, but where? [whooo ask T.P! he’ll know! ]
Francine: I sent a fax to Seaforth alarms this morning.
[whahahahaaha!!!! Is it just me or is this flippin hilarious???!!!! It was yesterday morning that Francine in her blue/purple print dress (with bib) said she would get on to the urgent job of finding out who has Seaforth alarms!!! We think Lee was naughty to wait till after his 1 pm appointment to chase up the poison gas/mercenary thingie?? Francine waited a whole day and night! whahahaah!!]
Francine: Well, good news and bad. They say it looks like their system, but the guy I spoke with said he installed nearly two hundred similar systems here in DC.
Lee: Two hundred?!
Lee: He couldn’t be more specific?
Francine: He’s trying to make a match of it now.
[Hope he gets right on it! – unlike Lee and Francine ]
Billy: Alright, stay on top of it. Right now, Code Pyramid is our best bet.
[Iwsod raises her hand – whoo whooo! Mr Billy sir??!!.. Why is Code Pyramid our best bet?! What is a Code Pyramid? Did you hear something we didn’t? Find a clue we didn’t know about? Oh I know.. you get a fortune cookie hinting to check Code Pyramid?!
Just where the heck does this Code Pyramid suddenly sprout from? Oh! My! Gosh! this plot is beyond lame so far.. we have coincidences and randoms galore.. and now it seems we have a random completely unexplained clue from Billy to put this whole case together 😉 Worst of all? Kj’s directing.. and I really want to love KJ’s episode because she rocks! but.. I gotta say.. this plot is lamest of the lame so far. oh well.. may as well have fun with it!]
…I want you to pull every file that you think might give us a clue…
[but Billy, we don’t need clues to solve this one, the case will just randomly be solved all by itself if we hang around long enough]
…Start cross-referencing with State, Interpol, NSA — somebody’s got to know something about this.
[rofl yes someone has to know something about it, or they’ll have no clues! Heaven forbid they have to you know, find out something for themselves! I’m starting to feel like I’m watching Get Smart! With this plot, how can the show be taken seriously at all??!! ]
Billy: Progress reports at noon.
[No goofing off today you two!]
Lee and Francine solemnly walk away.. and Billy is left with a concerned intense look. whoooo..
My guess? Billy is wondering how quickly he can get hold of some more fortune cookies.. ahem..
What did you think of Francine’s outfit? I thought it was actually quite understated.. very pretty.. funny to see Francine wearing pink when Amanda was wearing pink yesterday..
and why is Lee dressed so informally? He know something we don’t?
Moving on we see an insurance corporate headquarters..
guess it’s time to check in with the baddies.
Leo: I’m asking for a timetable, that’s all.
Durran: We finish when we finish, Leo. You know, it’s like panning for gold. Who knows when you’re gonna find the nugget.
Yet again, we are shooting scenes through trees and in low light. the baddies are looking for nuggets.. I’m looking for the baddies! Hard to make out!
Leo: Durran, you haven’t been able to find it yet.
Durran: That’s my problem… [Yes that and your leather blazer.. that is a serious problem Durran!] …You just sit still and shut up.
[whoooo there seems to be a little power play going on here between these two.. which one is the boss??!!!]
Leo: Now you listen to me. They can track those names through my policy lists. I’m the one who’s exposed.
[rofl. right when Leo says he’s exposed we see the opposite! He’s not exposed at all.. He’s hiding in the dark!]
Durran: Right up to your little eyeballs, pal. You sold your soul, Leo — for a lot of money. Now you’ve got to learn to live with the devil.
[well this is creepy.. Laura Palmer’s dad saying the equivalent of working with him is learning to live with the devil! and yes.. still in the dark.. grrrr.. this is really bugging me.. I really want to like this episode… and am still hopefully it will improve.. but the lighting and lack of focus is bugging the daylights out of me!]
Leo: Not me. But sometimes I think you might enjoy it. Maybe you never had a soul. [do we really care?! Me nooo]
Durran: Maybe you’re right… [He gave it to Bob in Twin Peaks!!!! GAH!!!!!!! Oh wait.. no wrong show.. sorry..]
…You just remember one thing, little buddy….
…The people you work for don’t put escape clauses in their contracts.
Well.. Durran has reduced Leo to a little child.. and totally put him in his place. Leo (the cowardly lion) looks pretty beaten. Will he go tell TP about it?! whahahahahaa..
Maybe he’ll make a deal with the agency and double cross these people he works for.. whoever they are.. who knows.. Well I’m guessing it’s pretty obvious I have no idea what’s ahead for these baddies! but I’m guessing it has something to do with Pyramids and Pharaohs.. ohhh how good it feels to spell that word correctly whahahahaa..
Okay guys.. I’m going to pause here for now.. as is always the case – I’m looking forward to hearing the thoughts of anyone who is reading and would like to share their thoughts – looking forward to discussing this with you all!
