Firstly… A huge thank you to the Magnificent Kiwismh for transcribing this episode – Kiwismh we salute you!!
In all honestly, it’s been at least 4 years since I’ve seen this episode.. and I’m looking forward to us discovering together all the little gems this episode has to offer! I don’t even remember what ‘wrong number’ is referring to! [hopefully it’s not the number 666! stay away from that bank account number! ]
On with the show!
This week.. get to find out where we are..
Before we find out what episode this is!
We hear some dramatic drums beating.. whoooooo and an army jeep crosses the water way.. well.. there are birds chirping.. so I guess this isn’t really evil countryside?
The jeep stops and a guy with a big gun gets out. whooo.
Another person gets out wrapped up from head to toe- it’s a mummy!!
The mummy unwraps itself to reveal it’s really Francine! [Put the wrapping back!]
She takes a swig of water..
LOL so she’s in a reeeeally hot place huh.. it doesn’t look hot to me..
Some men approach Francine.
Francine smiles sort of..
and puts out her hand to shake the leader’s..
instead, the leader kisses her hand.
(how weird.given the end of the last ep had Lee doing that to Amanda!) But this gets an actual smile from Francine.
The leader says something in a foreign language..
Then Francine reveals the US rifles in the back of the truck.
Aha! I always knew Francine was really dirty!! haaa..
She has agreed to exchange the rifles for a discount on the latest Yves Saint Laurent collection! 😉
One of the men check the rifles are the real deal.
Once this is confirmed, the group aim their guns at Francine.. double crossing her.
And disarming the man who she arrived with.
So who here seeing this for the first time thought Francine had betrayed her country and sold the rifles to supplement her wardrobe budget?
lol.. it never crossed my mind.. but no sure why not!
The baddies lead Francine and the other guy off at gunpoint.
We cut to a rather clean looking, grinning man.. He’s a little teapot. Short and stout… See his handle? 😉 He must be a tea sipping baddie!!
He’s off to the side happily watching all this unfold..
What a pose.. What fashion sense! He looks to me to have had agency training
Me thinks he may be the puppetmaster here- he looks far too smug! Head baddie material for sure!
The group approach him, and at this moment, Francine presses the button on a little button – looks like a car alarm button!
It sets off an explosion in the truck – a big boom boom!!
Francine and the other guy take off..
Francine is heard to speak the local language.. whooo she’s the real deal! So proficient!
The baddies shoot the guy accompanying her.. and Francine is surrounded..
the head baddie removes her headscarf
– umm is this suppose to be a big reveal? whatev..
Francine is looking worried-she’s in big trouble!
– hey good on Francine for getting all messy and dirty for the sake of her job too! I mean I’m guessing this is her job, and not some side project to increase her salary
Phew! Four minutes into this episode and we finally see Lee – back at IFF talking to Billy…
Lee: Anybody killed?
[Whoa… Lee is still dreaming about gray stripes from the looks of things!]
Billy: Just our local contact. The KGB sprung a trap. Took him out with an AK-47.
Lee: It was bound to happen Billy. Abernathy’s been trying every trick in the book running guns to those hill fighters. They get him?
[whoooo was Abernathy the dude? I’m guessing the dead dude was the ‘local contact’? So where’s Abernathy? ]
Billy: I don’t know. You’d better do a nose count.
Lee: All right, I’ll run an overseas ops tally. I tell ya, I don’t envy Abernathy one bit. That whole country’s a shootin gallery… [love how Lee says ‘shootin’ and not shooting!] …The Russians are trying like hell to win a cupie doll.
Billy smirks away..: Cupie doll – that’s funny.
And Lee heads into the coat elevator. And the scene ends..
I don’t think they’ll be laughing when they find out who else was involved- Maybe Francine is the cupie doll?!
Short and sweet explosive today.. I don’t want to have to split the next scene! So is it Cupie? or Kewpie?
I find this opening a bit of a yawn.. 4 minutes of yawn.. there must be good stuff right around the corner! why did we even need to see it?! anyone?
