14/15 Season Three, Episode 19: The Boy Who Could Be King- Scarecrow and Mrs King

Sooo where were we?
Beige baddie had been taken out by Eddie, Terry and Sandy’s ruse. They make a run for it out of the room and into the hanger.
Uh oh they run into Crowley. Who has a gun and starts shooting. Not very diplomatic of you Crowley!
Crowley: Stop right there!
I said stop!

They don’t haaa. they just keep on running. they already know you are going to kill them Crowley, why would they stop?! I think it would have been hilarious if Crowley had said ‘your majesty’ out of habit! 😉

We see Billy and Lee react to the gunfire, they split up..

We cut to Amanda in the car. LOL she is struggling to resist getting out of the car. She goes to start the car, I guess to do
what Lee suggested and call for help? but..
Amanda: He took the keys.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002499999
Lee took the keys? Aie.. what a mess! Did Lee really want her to go for help, or was he just saying that to get her to stay in the car?

Back in the hangar, the three continue to run and hide from Crowley.. Is it just me or is the music just really wrong?! It’s soooooo.. broadway?3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002510010
Crowley gets close.. and at that moment, Lee calls out and climbs the wall – jumping into the hangar.
Lee: Crowley!
He draws Crowley’s fire away from the others and buys them time. 3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002516016
I’m guessing that’s stunt Lee!

Cue the sneaking music. Amanda’s left the car and is sneaking into the action!

Billy quietly wanders the hangar..

Beige baddie comes to – rather loudly! Letting Billy know he’s in there!
Billy (to Soriakhof): Hold it.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002542042Billy holds a gun on him. lol he didn’t even get off the floor.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002540040
this baddie is so beige and lame!3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002548048Billy (to Soriakhof): …This way.
He leads beige baddie away..

We see Amanda poke her head into the hanger..
Crowley: Don’t anyone even breathe hard. No one’s going anywhere this time.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002558058
King Eddie
: This is between us, Crowley.
Lee reveals himself and points his gun at Crowley.
Lee: That’s far enough, Crowley.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002564064
Crowley grabs Terry to use as a hostage. That Meddling kid!
Is this the part where old man Crowley removes his mask and reveals he’s really an alien?
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002570070
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002570837
[Lee looks daggers at Crowley.. ouchie.. that should be enough to make any baddie wilt!]
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002574074
Whooo the cheek is going!!!
Crowley is scuuuuum!! 
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002578078
Crowley
: Hold it there! Now, you let us go, or I’m going to shoot.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002578845
Um the camera widens to find Billy and Beige baddie have now joined them. Surprise! With Beige baddie now standing next to Crowley. How did that happen? but LOL he still has his hands up??!!! He’s so flippin beige! 3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002580080
Lee: You’re not going to make it out of here, Crowley, so hand the gun over now!3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002582082
Crowley waivers..
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002584050
King Eddie: Look, all you need is me. Let them go.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002586086
At this moment.. ta da! Up pops Amanda..
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002588088
Crowley: I’m warning you!
She disappears a moment.. but returns.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002590390
She throws down a can of something
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002591991
and everyone freaks out.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002592392
Terry seizes the moment and escapes Crowley. LOL that beige baddie still has his hands up!
Eddie heads straight to Sandy and Terry to cover them. 
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002593593
Lee: Crowley!
Crowley shoots and  Eddie gets hit. Will diplomatic immunity cover this?! Winking smile I’m thinking Lee can wrap it around Crowley’s neck and squeeze now 😉
Lee shoots Crowley.
Beige baddie? He still has his hands up! rofl!!! 3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002595195
Lee
rushes over to the wall to pull up Crowley calling: …Amanda!3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002598098
And.. Beige Baddie still has his hands in the air!
Amanda pops up again.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002600100
And.. Beige Baddie still has his hands in the air! 😉
[This actor must have had his hands in the air for a full day. Ouchie!]
Billy: Eddie, are you hit bad?
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002602002
King Eddie: Everything is cool, BBN.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002605205
LOL even when he’s been shot he’s still a big upbeat kid giving Billy a thumbs up lol!
Billy returns the thumbs up. Sweet! There’s definitely real affection there huh. Maybe that’s one reason why Billy resisted reprising his BBN cover?
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002606406
Sandra
: Oh Eddie.
Amanda pops her head up again. 3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002608408
Lee: You don’t follow orders very well.3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002610810
[Um she tried to go for help and you’d flippin taken the keys!]
Amanda: Well, I know, …3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002612879
…I’ll try to work on that. See you later.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002613613
LOL at the way she does this quiet little ‘see you later’. Like nothing just happened haaaa3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002614981
Lee: Yeah.3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002615382
LOL Lee doesn’t seem to mind too much Winking smile 

This little moment is interesting. Lee gave her an order and she didn’t follow it. Especially interesting after TEHI (and Amanda being more highly ranked temporarily) and then the whole power struggle that went on in Wrong Number. How do you see this fitting in everyone?
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002616082
I guess he looks at Billy here.. but we cut back to Eddie, Sandy and Terry. 3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002617217
Eddie is hurting.. and looks like he got shot in the knee.. but he seems to have in one moment earned his father of the year award after all!  Smile 

Can someone tell Eddie he isn’t dying already?! From the vitamin A or the gunshot? Smile 

One last shot of Lee handling Crowley.. and of course.. Beige Baddie still has his hands in the air!
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002618718
Oh that’s hilarious!!!

I was kind of hoping Crowley would get nabbed/killed/ badly injured with an explosion of some kind. So I could say those were good vibrations!!! Ah well.. The beige baddie didn’t disappoint! 🙂

Any thoughts, comments, wishes about this blog post you’d care to share? Be as deep or as superficial as you like haaaaa..

    It doesn’t fit. Something else has happened before this. Episode order.

    And the beige baddie. Gah, I love it! And even the bit about someone telling Eddie that he isn’t dying. Oh, I hate being so late to the party, but I am so glad the party is so funny even for late comers like me.

  2. Well, well, well…Lee FINALLY took the keys! I guess Amanda’s training of him and not leaving his keys in the care has caught up with him/her. 😀

    This whole scene is so lame. First the beige baddie doesn’t even try anything – he’s beigest of the beige! Crowley grabbing Terry with no resistance?? Come on! I guess we’re supposed to realize that they’re all quaking in their boots because Crowley has a gun?

    LOL – Crowley removing his mask – the only way that would have been more perfect is if there was a dog in the scene!

    Even Billy is Lame in this scene – he just gives up beige baddie because Crowley has a gun. Gah! And Amanda with the gas can. Ugh. Yes it startles the baddies and gives Lee and Billy a chance to make a move, but Crowley shoots Eddie in the process. What if Crowley’s aim had been true and the King went down for his “big dirt nap” (love that kiwismh!) instead of just getting shot in the knee? I’m a big fan of Amanda and watching her professional growth, but I think what she did is bad. I could see her getting a reprimand about it. I’m just going to ignore the corny see ya later line.

    Another great write-up, iwsod, despite the completely lame-o scene!

  3. Oh, I forgot one other thing. I read somewhere that Mel Stewart had some degree or belt in some form of martial arts and was very good at it. They never show that in these scenes when he’s out in the field. I guess they wanted to leave that real life ability out, especially when Lee gets all the action scenes.

  4. I love the dynamic with Lee and Amanda right about now. I need to go back and watch but I get the impression that Lee was being more playful or light hearted about the following orders. He knows Amanda good and well by now and he knows he didn’t order he to stay in the car, but go for backup. And she responds with a throwaway response about working on it, which we all know she won’t and so does Lee. She saves the day and then disappears just like a superhero. They are just so much more at ease with each other, even after the debacle with him not picking her up.

    This beige baddie is killing me. I wonder how this will go down with his superiors. Maybe he was rogue. Either way he was terrible and useless. Crowley had more bite.

  5. I love how understated the sorrowful “He took the keys” is. As if it was probably a running joke on set and they never knew we’d all be watching it like crazy people later and finding it just as funny.

              There was the option of rating posts too.. I quickly got rid of that as it wasn’t an indicator that actually meant anything for us.

              • Oh my gosh. there is the option to rate posts, and rate comments.
                My own opinion is rating comments can lead to a bit of self-consciousness..[you know we might begin to think oh my comment didn’t get a high rating no one likes it – which IMHO would be sad because all comments IMHO rock!]
                I wouldn’t want that.. I think likes are enough. what do you guys think?

                It looks like to show likes for a post is an option I select when I publish the post. I’ve selected it. but lol I can’t see where I can see on the blog post where people have liked it.

    I could go the easy route and say he’s just too infatuated by this point. 😉 And as usual, Amanda’s quick thinking moments have been great in this episode. Lee can’t argue that she helped expedite the situation (otherwise, beige baddie would still have his hands in the air). In thinking about Wrong Number, this could be an example of Lee making more of an effort to stop overreacting where she’s concerned.

    First thing in the morning Lee gets in trouble with some turpentine when he had an encounter with the ‘boys and girls in blue’ and he couldn’t pick up Amanda in time for her appointment. 😦

    Now at the end of this case he is rescued by a can of turpentine thrown by Amanda… 🙂

          Is anyone hating this episode? lol. my impression was that most of us find it pleasant enough!

          I’m enjoying the walk through this episode, and discovering these characters again, I didn’t remember this ep at all.
          I can only speak for myself when I say – yeah I see a few head scratching plot hole moments but nothing I can’t forgive.
          I’m quite enjoying this episode, and plot holes are really a natural part of an smk episode lol.

          I think there has been a few eps where bad plots have taken the shine off a little [I won’t revisit specifics here] – because the whole ep revolves around it and so following the story just doesn’t and can’t work… or the implications for the characters are lousy. then.. I don’t like it.

          But in this ep, so far any plot holes don’t say anything about Lee and Amanda so I’m okay with that 🙂 I hope that makes sense.
          I can happily accept the ridiculous notion that Eddie thought he had a brain tumour until he saw an American doctor, and go with the flow of where it leads [dig it?!].. but I’ll still call it out as silly if I think it is and still enjoy the show anyway 99% of the time 🙂 at least I think that’s what I do..

      Amanda: “You took the keys and I never learned how to hot-wire a car. So I couldn’t get some help and had to come myself. I really need some proper agency training!”
