Back to the hospital.. and we see a nurse heading towards Lee’s room and past Duffy. LOL has Duffy been there all night?! He’s like – the Terminator!
Woman’s voice over PA: Dr Leon to Obstetrics. Dr Leon to Obstetrics. Will Mrs Morgan please return to her room? Mrs. Morgan, please return to your room.
-Thanks for transcribing the PA jenbo – hilarious! why wasn’t Mrs Morgan in her room? haaaaa! She’s in trouble! 🙂
The nurse enters Lee’s room – the paper cup is in the foreground right where Dr Goldberg left it.
She puts down the tray of medications. Lee doesn’t hear her enter and is sound asleep.. Uh oh – is she a baddie?!
The nurse places a hand over Lee’s mouth while he sleeps to silence him- roughly enough to wake him up..
Nurse: Shhh shhhh. No fuss or you will set off the watchdog outside.
[She’s lucky he didn’t give her a right hook!]
They share smiles.. and Lee looks very happy to see her.
Okay phew.. she’s on his side!
Lee: Sally, how did you know I was here?
Sally: An old proverb says: Moles with bad eyes must have very good ears.
[More references to eyes.. very interesting! I guess this old proverb can apply to Lee right now too – given his eyes are currently bad- he needs to have good ears – and who are his eyes and ears? the people on his barnstorm list!]
Lee: Hmmm and what have those ears of yours picked up?
Sally: Bad vibes, Lee. Bad…[lol I think the metaphors are getting jumbled] … The word in the Barnstorm network is one of the chickens is really a chicken hawk. [Oh my! another metaphor! whwhahaahaha]
Sally: There’s a list with all our names on it and the Germans have it.
Lee: You surprise me, Sally, you’re usually right on the mark. Correction in two points. The list may not have all your names and the Germans may not have it. [At this point, how can Lee be so sure Sally who is usually right is actually wrong? Maybe she knows the Germans have it now. Lee can’t know anything at the moment! ]
Sally: How nice you can be so particular. How did anyone get such a list?
Lee: Someone in our family’s gone bad…
[This is quite understated for Lee.. It happens? It shouldn’t happen.. and there should be precautions so this could never happen. The thought that anyone other than Lee could compile this list is a little ridiculous.. Why would the Barnstorm ‘network’ as Sally describes it, all know each other?! These are civilians! they don’t take on the same risks an agent would- ‘it happens’ just doesn’t cut it for me.
not to mention ahem how if Lee had just destroyed the lenses rather than trying to be cute and bring them back to the US, there would be no immediate risk of this list getting out. not thrilled with the logic of this whole set up.. is it just me?]
Sally: Yeah. Perhaps I should play it safe and get out. That happens too, you know. Sources dry up.
Lee: No, no, no, no, that’d be the worst thing you could do. You’d draw attention to yourself…
[Draw attention to herself?! If her name is on the list and the list is in someone else’s hands she’s done and dusted! what difference does it make how much attention she draws to herself. LOL. okay okay.. the message here is Lee will fix everything, you can count on Lee.. ] …But don’t worry. I’ll let you know if it looks like the roof is gonna fall in. And in the meantime you let me know if you hear anything. Okay?
Sally: Trust you? (Lee raises his eyebrows like – yeah!)
…Heh, why stop now?
Lee chuckles – happy to have prevented Sally from packing up shop.
Next thing, we see an orderly wheeling a big trolley along the corridor..
Voice at nurses’ station: Nurses station. May I help you?
Voice over PA: Dr Kelly? Dr Kelly? telephone please. Telephone for Dr Kelly. Telephone for Dr Kelly.
Man.. come on Dr Kelly.. answer the phone already- someone really wants to talk to you!
The orderly pushes the trolley into a storage room, where Neumann surprises him and knocks him out.
he takes a semi automatic gun from his briefcase and loads it.
Soooo Neumann is just wanting to kill Lee? doesn’t he want the contact lenses and the list? Or was he just going to threaten Lee with the gun till he talked? And.. after all the medical treatment Lee has received, why would Neumann even assume Lee has the lenses? I guess he doesn’t know Lee was brought in unconscious.. so he probably assumes Lee has them in a safe place.. hm.. Does this work?
Lee picks up the phone
Lee: Ahem…yeah nurses station five L please.
Doctor 1: Five L.
Lee: Uh, this is Melrose with the agency project Broken Wing. I wanna talk to the agent guarding room 517.
[Lee is project Broken Wing? lol.. and why would the doctor know the code name? LOL at Lee saying he’s Billy – this is two episodes in a row someone has done this. Billy might need to deal with this .. change his name maybe? ha! ]
Doctor1: Okay I’ll get him.
Lee hangs up the phone and prepares to sneak out of the room.
He’s looking adequately regretful of his need to do this.. but also determined and not physically up to this task!
Next, we cut to Neumann all dressed up in the orderly’s uniform, a gun hidden in the trolley..
Neumann sees Lee exiting his room…
– and stops to turn and look at the opposite wall as Lee walks past.
[That bloke in the white coat- with the white hair, is he guarding Lee too? because he seems to be in the background of pretty much all hospital scenes not really doing anything 😉 is this the white haired extra we’ve seen many times in previous episodes? I think so!]
Rofl! yeah nothing suspicious looking about hiding your face! haaaa..
Lee makes his way into the stairwell..
Neumann backs up the trolley into a lift..
We cut to an ambulance driving along a road..
That old place looks familiar.. I think I found it once didn’t I? was it Reach for the sky when Amanda and Billy were driving around lots? [Yep! Found it!]
Back to the Hospital entrance –
Lee exits the hospital and walks straight past Neumann.. oh dear.. Lee really must be unwell to have not noticed him!
Neumman calls out to Lee and points his gun: We have to talk…
…I want those lenses.
[We can see behind Neumman an ambulance backing in.. lol is this why we had the random shot of the ambulance?!]
Lee: Well I don’t have ’em.
[But ummm Lee does have the information that was on the lenses no?! I mean.. it’s his list! Sooo if Neumman wants that info so bad – why not torture Lee for it? lol.. err not that I want that.. but the whole logic of this list and everyone wanting it is truly doing my head in!]
Lee kicks the trolley sending Neumman into the back of the
Just at that moment, the ambulance back doors open and whack Neumman.. the ambulance is on Lee’s side!
Lee kicks the gun out of Neumann’s hand and punches him a few times.. Neumann winds up in pain on the ground.. (How embarrassing for Neumman! But handy.. he is at a hospital 😉 ) Lee nurses his injured arm.
Seeming to realise this is a bad situation he is facing.. Or maybe he’s just surprised to see Neumann again.. Or.. maybe the ‘look’ is something else.. we’ll ‘see’! 🙂
Next thing we are back at IFF… so I will pause here for the moment!! Sooooo what do you all ‘see’ going on here? Gotta run- I’ll be ‘looking’ forward to hearing your in’sight’ful ‘views’ everyone!!
