Welcome back from the break everyone!!
[To read post 10 of Dead Men leave no trails.. See HERE]
Where were we in this episode? So Sallee killed Millicent, Amanda analysed Millicent’s diary to try and piece together information that can locate Sallee.
Oh yeah, and France squashed the guy with the red carnation. [I’ll get back to that conversation when I can!]
The last thing we saw was Amanda riding a bus, and tracking down Sallee’s morning Philly Hoagie with extra onions…
The shop owner confirms this after seeing Sallee’s photo, and Amanda asks him to not tell she’s looking for him… Amanda heads off.. to do what?
Well.. here’s where we pick up the episode! Feels soooo goooood to be back!
Next thing, we see Lee walking briskly into the bullpen..
Woman: Good morning, Mr. Stetson.
LOL Lee seems to be in a good mood! I think it’s because he is out of his grandpa outfit and those dad shoes! I’m in a much better mood now too!
[Hey interesting she didn’t call him Scarecrow. I can never figrre out when he is what!]
Woman: We have a call for you on line six.
Lee: Six? Thank you.
[See the agent on the phone behind him? I think that’s the lady who was in the meeting earlier, sitting next to Lee. I wonder if she is admin.. anyway. sorry I digress]
Lee: Yeah, Stetson.
Amanda: Hi. Look, it’s me. I think I’ve tracked Sallee down.
[Love how she says ‘it’s me’ ]
Lee: Wait. Hold it, hold it. Is it Sallee? Have you seen him?
Amanda: I’m not sure. I haven’t seen him yet, but I think I’m just about to. You need to meet me on the two thousand block of Connecticut Avenue. Can you do that? I’m right across the street from an all-night sandwich shop, there are a couple of little tables out in front of it, okay?
Lee: Okay. I’ve got it—I’ll be there in ten minutes. You stay out of sight…
…Oh, and Amanda… if it is Sallee, and he shows up, don’t follow him. You hear me?
[whooo some intensity here from Lee. He knows her too well. To be honest, I’m siding with Lee. enough of the acting alone Amanda. this guy is very dangerous! Would she be that stupid to follow this guy??!! ]
Amanda: I wouldn’t think of it.
(Amanda hangs up..)
[Uh oh.. I’m sensing she would be that stupid! 😉 ]
(She exits the phone booth.)
Next thing we see the coffee shop opposite the sandwich shop, and Amanda is seated inside reading a menu.
We see Sallee arrive.. the man from earlier stands outside and talks to him.
Amanda looks out the window of the coffee shop and sees Sallee. Hmm shame Sallee isn’t in his uniform! I guess he doesn’t wear it to and from work. I guess he wears the same shoes though (as Millicent’s diary said his shoes were wet).
Anyway, Sallee and the man talk, then Sallee walks away waving and glancing around. The man goes back inside the shop.
Drat! I guess the man told him?!
Amanda exits the coffee shop and starts to cross the street toward the sandwich shop.
Yep.. she starts to follow him… and Oh boy, he knows what she looks like.. she is there plain as day, easy for him to see no?
He doesn’t seem to notice her. but then, he’s a pro so he wouldn’t let it show no?
Sallee walks quickly along the street.
He turns a corner, down a side street.
Amanda turns down the side street, stops, looks around,
No sign of him.
Will she continue? or go back? She probably shouldn’t have gone that far.. but.. that doesn’t mean she has to go further!
Whoooo this is quite suspenseful! I honestly have no idea as I type what’s coming next!
We see an empty alley way..
Then, Amanda seems to have made a decision, and heads back to the main street.
Oh hoorah! Smart decision Amanda! What a moment!!!
I’m so glad she didn’t choose to continue. That would have been really irritating err and deadly!!
Uh oh. Sallee pops his head from around a corner. Her heels totally give away that she has started walking away. lol.
Sallee comes out from behind the building and walks back down the side street, picking up the pace. Is he going after Amanda? or trying to get out of there? Hopefully the latter!
Next thing we see a park. Hmm I think that’s the building she caught the bus in front of.
We see Amanda walking along a footpath in a residential neighbourhood, a taxi drives past and she tries to hail it.
What happened to meeting Lee at the coffee shop?! why didn’t she go back there? Maybe she wants to search for Sallee from the taxi.
The taxi drives past.
Boooo to taxis! [Boooo to cabs too!]
Amanda continues walking along the street, then looks around and cuts down a side path.
[her belt seems out of place no? Actually, it would make a fabulous garrotte ]
Uh oh. Sallee is behind her following her!!!!! Gah!!!!
Although lol I mean how could she not notice? She had even turned around to face behind her when trying to hail the taxi! oh whatev.
We see Amanda head down a secluded part of the park. Ugh!
Sallee continues to follow Amanda, then pulls the garrotte out of his pocket.
We cut to Lee and Hoagie man.
Man: Last I looked, he was following her.
Lee: Which way?
Man: Down the street, towards the park.
Lee leaves in a hurry.
Hoagie man seems to be wondering what all this fuss is about..
Suddenly we cut back to Amanda. whooo in that minute it rained in the park. lol..
Sallee observes from the bushes.. evil bushes..
Lee runs across the road toward the park. Quick Lee!!
Seems he has his gun drawn. whooooo..
Eeek!!!! I can’t look!!!
Can someone else write this bit???!!!!!
ohhh okay.. I’ll keep watching 😉
Amanda is walking along a footpath in the park.
Sallee steps out from the bushes behind her, and watches while holdin
g the garrotte.
Gah!!! those eyes!!! He doesn’t seem to blink!!!! Hunting his prey.. this guy is absolutely intense!!
Lee’s arm snakes out and grabs Amanda,
pulling her around the corner.
Me like, it’s in moments like this that we are reminded Lee is actually a highly skilled agent who is not to be messed with
I don’t know what’s coming next. LOL maybe the comment I’m about to make will be cancelled out by something. lol.
But I loved how in this moment, Lee’s first concern was finding Amanda and ensuring her safety. I think this was his first priority because he went bounding into this scenario, knowing Sallee, the wanted man, was in that park somewhere hunting for Amanda. Lee could have stayed back a little and tried to get Sallee to reveal himself with Amanda as bait – but this never ever crossed Lee’s mind for a second. Just wasn’t an option and.. I love that!
One last comment from me.. I thought this little moment:
was a great little throw back to this little moment:
another grab her and pull her around the corner taking her by surprise moment And yes.. it’s an excuse to post an image of Lee looking his dapper European episode best
Ahem.. sorry too much beige in this ep.. I need some suave Lee!
Can’t wait to hear what you make of this part of the episode! Feels so good to be walking again!!!
