Amanda is on her way to the airport to meet Lee from his flight..
We see a multi-storey car park, and Lee exits an elevator.. whoooo white jacket off now and blue shirt on view. Much better..
Uh oh.. we suddenly see a close up on a switch blade.. it’s Neumann!
Neumann and one of his goons takes Lee by an arm.
Neumann: Walk straight ahead Mr Stetson… nice and easy, nice and……
Lee elbows both of them and makes a run for it.
Both men chase after Lee and catch up with him near a parked car.
[Is that a Hollywood sign I can see in the distance?! Okay.. maybe not.. but I’m still looking!!]
They fight.. Neumann slices Lee’s blue shirt – damn him!!! whooo and I see a little blood maybe?
Well.. they get the best of Lee.. and as he lays on the ground Amanda pulls up at a distance.
Neumann: Hold him still, Crowe. I want his eyes.
Noooooo not Lee’s eyes!!! Something tells me this guy would take the eyes to save the hassle of fiddling with contact lenses.
Gah!!!! Hurry Amanda!!!
Neumann looms closer and closer..
We get a zoom in on Lee’s eyes..
Oh my… Smelling salts! err focus iwsod Lee is in danger this is not time for swooning!
Lee’s freaking out! [lol this would be a cool avatar! haaa]
And we get a really really close up look at his left eye.. actually now I’m freaking out. that really is BB’s left eye!!
This ep wasn’t kidding when it called itself ‘The Eyes have It’! Everything is about the eyes!!!
Is it just me or is it a little freaky that we can actually see every wrinkle, every vein? every eyelash?! Umm but I’m pleased to see there is no guyliner in this shot
We get our own little zoom in on Amanda.. nice touch to add to the suspense and drama.. hurry Amanda!
She blows her car horn and zooms toward them continuing to blow her horn. Distracting the baddies and telling Lee to break away if he can.
He does.. and he scrambles to get between her car and the baddies. She pulls up and Lee yells
Lee: Get out of here! [Get out?! I don’t know. I’ll go with what bitsy beans transcribed]
He jumps in the driver’s seat as Amanda moves over.
The baddies scramble out of the way and into their car as Lee reverses away at speed, does a turn (is that bootleg?) and speeds off.. Cue the scary action music… they’re going fast!
Ah wait! No don’t worry.. it’s just in front of a green screen here lol… how embarrassing!
Lee crashes through the exit barrier and out onto the main highway.
Neumann and Crowe continue the chase.. Lee weaves the station wagon at speed in between the other traffic.
Both cars pass a diner where two policemen are parked, sitting having a break.
Seeing the chase they abandon their meal and give chase.
Though LOL such a great smk touch that one of the policemen is conflicted
– he tries to run to his car keeping his coffee but then thinks better of it. LOL..
Lee tries to lose the baddies..
they give it a good go trying to catch him.
Lee tries to lose them by driving through some shops or something.. I don’t know.. but Amanda is looking worried and keeping quiet: letting Lee concentrate..
Enough chasing and squealing tyres already.
The baddies are sticking with the station wagon.. then.. they turn to see the cops approaching behind them..
Is that a Hollywood sign behind the cops?! Ahh one of these days.. there is an LMU sign on the side of the hill though.. lol umm what’s that? Rofl!! It’s a sign for Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles California and the white building is the Uni. whahahaaa.. those cops are miles away.. Hurry up coppers! Lee and Amanda are being chased in Washington DC!
Lee’s vision begins to blur… and he struggles to keep his eyes open.
His head lolls to the side. Seems he just missed running up the back of that car..
LOL she doesn’t sound panicked enough here!
The station wagon rounds a corner,
a large truck is reversing and across the road and they are headed straight for it and Amanda’s panic kicks in..
She grabs the wheel and turns it sharply to avoid hitting the truck driving straight through a bus stop. Ouchie!
The station wagon comes to a stop.
Neumann and Crowe drive past the scene whilst the police car pulls up behind the station wagon.
Policeman 1: Requesting a backup and an ambulance. Third and Gilmore.
A Policeman runs toward the car with his first aid kit.
Policeman 2: You alright, lady?
Amanda: Take it easy. Yes I’m alright. I have an injured federal agent here. I need to get him to the nearest trauma centre. Now call the number on the back of this and say these words “Eagle One, there’s a bird in the nest”. Do you understand? [A bird in the nest?! lol.. I would have thought it would be there’s a bird out of the nest!]
Policeman 2: Yes ma’am.
Love this! Here we see Amanda acting with authority and taking charge! You go girl!!! I see this as real growth for her and I love it!
We see Lee is starting to come to a little..
Amanda: Do you have a first aid kit?
Policeman 2: Sure.
Amanda: Let me have it. Thank you.
Amanda: Just hold on. It’s gonna be okay (Lee is gripping his arm as Amanda quickly opens first aid kit to remove a bandage)
Amanda: Yeah , I know.
Lee: Contact Billy.
Amanda: Yeah I know, they’re gonna contact Billy. Now just don’t worry it’s going to be alright.
(Amanda unwraps bandage and prepares to wrap it around Lee’s upper arm)
Lee seems to drift back into unconsciousness here.
Hmm ‘Contact Billy.’ I think this was not one sentence – but two words.. and Lee may have been trying to tell Amanda about the contact lenses? to give them to Billy?
Back to Lee and Amanda.. Lee is groaning and not making a lot of sense..
while Amanda puts some gauze on his arm wound and tries to bandage him.
Amanda: Lee, just hang on. Hang on. It’s going to be alright.
(Lee’s head rolls back and the scene ends there.. )
I shall pause here too! Soooooo quite a homecoming huh.. I was looking forward to seeing how they greeted each other after 3 days apart.. and seeing Lee’s big smile at finding it is Amanda who is his ride home from the airport. But these darn Baddies have just ruined everything!!!! They’ll pay!!!!
Can’t wait to hear from ya!!!! What do you guys think so far?
