Where were we? Lee and Amanda would die for each other.. glad they straightened that out! Now they are off to chat with ‘Lana’..
Lana meets waiting Lee and Amanda.
Lana: I rub the Bulgarian Ambassador the right way and he forgets I’m there…
[Ohhhh Bulgarians! Not Russians! Was Viktor in The Mole a Bulgarian diplomat? or do we not find out.. and.. Has Lee learned how to say Freeze in Bulgarian?! ]
[LOL umm Lana seems to not mind Amanda joining them.. I would have thought she would question at least who she is lol.. maybe Lee has told her about his partner ]
…This time I heard him make a deal…
…to buy the Barnstorm list. Is that the list of the family Lee??!
[Lana asks in almost an accusatory way.. like you’ve been busted.. IMHO of course.. I am relieved to see a little of this.. because it’s just a list that shouldn’t have been possible to make! If I was on the list I’d be pointing it out!]
Lee: I wish it wasn’t true… but yeah it is.
[Lee is IMHO regretful and chastened.. but I can also see this is open to a whole lot of interpretation soooo go ahead and share what you make of it if you wish! I’m probably seeing what I want to see!]
Lana: How many names were on the list?
Lee: I never got a good look at it. It’s probably complete now did you hear who Filikov was talking to?
[Umm so Lee doesn’t know how many people are on his complete list? huh?]
[I’m sorry I can’t let that pun go by… ‘I never got a good look at it’?!!!! whahahahhahaaaa!!! That’s hilarious!!! Oh Lee you cheeky thing you!!! He was looking right through them from Ste Maire to Washington DC tee hee….
BTW- so not only did Lee not destroy the contact lenses he actually didn’t even know if the list on them was complete? Aie.. the whole premise of this plot makes no sense… Oh I can’t wait to hear what you guys make of all this! Maybe I’m way off base here! ]
Lana: A guy named Brody.
Lee: Brody???!! You’re sure it was Brody?
[Oh dear.. a strong immediate reaction from Lee.. not a Brody fan huh.. ]
Lana: I’m positive. Look, I’ve been here too long already. I have to leave.
[Lana leaves.. Umm.. gee Lee, Amanda – could have thanked her for getting the information to them!!! Oh dear! Good for Lana.. she took a risk coming and sharing this info.. and her name is on that list..I like Lana!]
I guess the lack of thank you is explained by the look of dread on Lee’s face..
Amanda: Who’s Brody?
Lee: They call him the Death Broker because that’s what he deals in. He’s arranged assassinations, arms deals, coups. A professional middleman open to anything if the price is right.
Amanda: How does he do it?
Lee: Simple. He either buys or blackmails the people he needs. People with position, contacts [whahaha!!! the puns are coming thick and fast!] , power…
Amanda: Well if you know it’s Brody, why don’t you bring him in?
[I really think that these two are standing much too far away from each other while they have this conversation ]
Lee: Even if we could find him, which is doubtful, we couldn’t hold him more than 30 seconds with the hearsay that we’ve got. No, we need more on Brody, a lot more.
[yeah like who gave the list to Brody.. that would be good to find out!]
Amanda seems to be taking a very close assessment of Lee’s face here while he talks.. lol.. I think it’s about how he is doing and that she really needs to get him to rest..
Amanda: Look, Mr Melrose probably has everything set up at your place by now. We ought to get you back there…
[Awh.. a little comforting touch on his lapel.. she does like Lee’s lapels ]
…You’re not gonna do anybody any good if you fall in your face.
[Lee closes his eyes.. he does seem to be fading a bit.. a rest even for a little bit could be just what a non double crossing doctor orders!]
Amanda: Come on.
Together Lee and Amanda leave.. I’m a little concerned at Lee driving his car in this condition.. especially alone.. but.. there’s no mention of it.. and I’m thinking too much
Next thing, we see an exterior shot of Lee’s apartment block. LOL it seems Lee has changed floors yet again to keep the baddies on their toes.. he’s no longer up high.. he’s now on the second level ha!
Lee’s on the phone.. and not resting.. But his hair is looking especially good not so flat!
Lee: Well keep looking, damn it. And call Butera over at Langley, he may have something that we don’t…
[We see Amanda anxiously watching Lee not rest]
…. Well wake him up!
Lee hangs up the phone.
Amanda approaches Lee.
Amanda: You know you really have to get some rest.
Lee: Oh not now, Amanda.
Amanda: Yes now… [whoo hoo! for Amanda – that’s forceful!](more quietly): Please.
Lee goes to lay on the couch but Amanda stops him haaa..
Cute how Lee kind of pauses like he can’t believe he has to go to bed. like he’s a little boy
Amanda: Not on the couch, in the bedroom where you. belong. Come on.
[Lee must be really unwell.. such a provocative statement of Amanda’s hooo haaaaa..]
Amanda still has Lee by the arm and directs him to his bedroom while Lee continues to protest but still head in that direction anyway
Lee: Amanda, please. I don’t have time to rest.
Amanda: Don’t argue with me.
Lee: There are things that need to be done here.
Amanda: Shhhh, come on.
Lee lets out a massive breath. lol guess the fight is over
They enter Lee’s bedroom..
Amanda: You’re gonna be much more comfortable. And this is really where you belong.
[Hmm Amand does enjoy saying that I think haaaa!]
Lee sits on the bed, nursing his injured arm, and Amanda picks up his feet to help them up onto the bed too..
[LOL at how Lee seems to lay on only half the bed and his calves/feet are hanging over the edge.. for a tall guy he needs a longer bed!]
Amanda: All right get your feet up. Come on.
Lee: I am. Uhh.
Amanda: I think you probably ought to take this. medication. [Ugh!!]
Lee takes the pills from Amanda..
puts his hand to his mouth.. lol he gives her a look here –
could be a look saying – there’s no point in arguing with you so I’ll just go along. But.. maybe there is another meaning.. ahem.. we’ll see!
… Here you go. There you go. Now I’ll pour you some water.
…Okay. Okay? Alright.
Lee drinks the water.. giving Amanda another look!
[lol given his posture he seems to slurp a little tee hee. Amanda takes the opportunity to wipe his mouth cheek chin or whateverhowgbihagboabowb]
Lee: There now, are you satisfied, huh?
[ah Lee.. that’s what this little exercise is about. Making sure Amanda is satisfied It’s not about resting or feeling better or any such nonsense ]
Amanda: Yeah. Satisfied…
(Amanda reaches over to feel and stroke tenderly the bump on Lee’s forehead. Lee lets her )
…That’s really a bump.
Me thinks Lee lets out a bit of a groan here as Amanda is err assessing his injury
Just at that moment.. they are interrupted..
Soooo for the moment.. I’m going to pause here everyone! Hello hello!!! Thanks for reading!!! Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!!!
