Where were we.. Sallee was hunting Amanda.. his prey.. but Lee intervenes to protect Amanda, now she’s safe – Lee is on alert to find Sallee..
However, Sallee is no dummy..
He makes a run for it.
Lee: You stay here.
[Hmm something tells me this time she really will stay there!]
Lee runs after Sallee, gun drawn.
Lee sees Sallee get on a bus.
We see Sallee find himself a seat and he looks out the window. yep.. Not blinking!
The bus departs. Sallee seems to realise that was way too close for comfort, and drat. He missed out on his usual Philly Hoagie and onions breakfast! He’s hungry!!!
Lee watches the bus leave.
And we get an intense zoom in on determined Lee watching Sallee get away.
This isn’t over dirt bag!
Lee is going to eat you for breakfast!
[not a Philly Hoagie with extra onions!]
If we didn’t know it already, the super OTT dramatic music tells us this means war!!!!!
Next, we are back at IFF, and the Yellow lady is patrolling the perimeter- whoo a dog walker! Ms Dogwalker!
Lee and Amanda return to the Q bureau.
Lee: There is a reason Sallee is here. I know it. My guess is, is that he is too close to whatever it is to stop now…
[Lee turns back to the map.. the old scarecrow’s brain is ticking over! ]
…Now, what we have to do… is figure out what, where, and when…. [rofl. Easy! Where is Francine? Who did Amanda see today?!] …Check my events calendar on the desk, will ya?
(Amanda does as he asks)
Lee: Now, there is a cluster of pins around the sandwich shop, sector three…
…Alright, we’ll move outward in concentric circles, say… two blocks out, to start.
[LOL is he attempting to use a compass to measure 2 blocks? rofl! looks super clever!]
Amanda: Right. Sector three. What events?
[Amanda starts checking the diary]
Lee: Ah, public and private… security risk code blue and above.
Amanda: Ah, six today. Three tomorrow… Eleven the day after.
Amanda hands Lee a folder. Lee’s diary is a folder?
Lee: Ah, man, that’s what I was afraid of. A dozen embassies, and a score of government agencies in that sector. Hotels and museums, too. Alright, I’m gonna go down and check along the bus route. Talk to that… proprietor at the sandwich shop…
…He seemed to be pretty talkative.
[Is it just me or is he looking pretty good here at the doorway?! Ah how I’ve missed my immature silliness over Lee Stetson ]
Lee: Maybe he can tell me something. Why don’t you check into that diary some more?
[Well there’s a compliment. Now Lee is on board with Amanda’s diligence with the diary!]
Lee: Okay? See you later.
Amanda gets out the diary and gets to work and the scene ends.
Next thing we see the corvette pulling out of the magical IFF car park. [Look both ways for yellow lady Lee!]
We cut back to Amanda, absorbed in the diary. Is that a new ring? It’s very pretty.. I don’t think I’ve noticed her wearing any ring other than her pinkie one.. have you? Is this new?
she looks lovely here
Amanda (reading from the diary to herself): “Went to the library today and found two wonderful volumes on electricity. Alan has such fascinating hobbies.”
[Oh boy. Just like Jamie and Phillip! ]
(Amanda puts the diary down, reaches into the desk drawer, removes the open lockbox, placing it on the desk. She pulls out the burnt out light bulb and looks at it thoughtfully.)
Oh wait – Did a light bulb just come on???!!!!
[Sorry couldn’t resist]
Amanda writes a note, leaves it on the desk, picks up the light bulb and her notecards, and exits. Uh oh where is she off to now? You know, I am drawing a total blank on this episode and what’s next!
Anyway, the scene ends there.. and we cut to Lee pulling up out front of the Philly Hoagie shop. There’s police.. police tape and a crowd.. Uh oh.. Lee ducks under the tape and heads inside.. he seems to know what he’s going to find inside
Yep.. a dead dude on the floor.. A cop approaches Lee.
Lee: Don’t tell me… the money’s still in the register.
Lee shows his ID to the cop..
Lt. Trisk: You got it. We figure dope or numbers … but if he was dealing out of here, it was the quietest operation in town—we never heard about it.
(Um why did they uncover him and cover him again? was that for Lee’s benefit. Hmm..)
[What’s going on in smk land, this cop is better dressed than Lee!]
Lt. Trisk: I’m Lieutenant Trisk.
Lee: I think you’ll find this ties into a homicide, yesterday, in Arlington. McDonald. The same MO.
Lt. Trisk: Tell me, Mr. Stetson, what’s the Agency’s interest in this?
[I wonder if Lt. Trisk is expert at the Frisk..]
Lee: We’re looking for a guy. Steven Sallee. He’s a terrorist. We thought he was dead.
(Lee shows Lt. Frisk Trisk the photo)
Lt. Trisk: Not this guy?
(Lt. Trisk gives the photo back. Lee takes it and walks off as he responds)
Lee: No. This guy is dead.
Cops and their pockets!
I better pause here before moving on to the next scene.. anyone like to share their thoughts on this part of the ep? or the ep so far? Love love love to hear from ya!
