Moving on.. we see a warehouse.. a big one!
Inside we find Pam chewing out someone.
Pam Jentry: Sometimes you really amaze me, Rajmand. I’ve been working with the press for six months. Those clowns aren’t reporters.
Pam seems pretty rattled. that didn’t take much!
Rajmand: It must be that international team of agents we got that report on. [report? from who? and who knows about the team? did the Indians? Hmm I guess Chang did say something about there being no secrets 😉 ]
Pam Jentry: I guess so, damn! How did they find us so fast?
Rajmand: We must move now, alone!
Pam Jentry: No! We just lost one detonator by moving too fast. We’re waiting for the airlift and the cover of the send-off. [Hmm.. seems Pam is the one in charge!]
Rajmand: That is two days away!
Pam Jentry: Well, I’ll work on moving it up, and you work on slowing down our reporters, okay?
Rajmand: I will take care of it!
Back to the three little spies. they’re buying their lunch at the taco place.
[was this also the colossus of Rhodes place? in Lost and Found? I’ve got no time to look.. anyone interested in doing a little research? – no pressure!]
Petrovich: This decadent musician is a waste of time! [As is Petrovich’s decadent vocabulary!]
Lee: Disagree! Skylar’s operation is dirty somehow. It’s a good lead!
Chang: Bikinis, “Barbed Wire Love”, and Chi Chi do not qualify as a lead!
Petrovich: Precisely. Just what are you concealing from us, huh?
Lee: I’m not concealing a damn thing…
…You two know as much as I do…
…Now look, Food for Flight is getting ready to send 50 tons of food around the world. Those nine detonators could get lost in any one of those shipments. Very easily!
Chang: Pure conjecture.
Lee: No, an educated guess.
[eh???!!! Hello!!! did you all miss the bit where Billy identified that Ron’s Mom’s cornbread mix (which had the one detonator in it) was traced back to Food for Flight?!!! Call that conjecture?? or an educated guess?!! Or am I wrong here? did I miss something? ]
Petrovich: Then we must move… …Cordon off their warehouse. Interrogate their personel. Bend those people. Make them talk! [LOL I don’t think Petrovich does subtle! Funny.. if this is his attitude he should love Barbed Wire Love! 🙂 ‘Get me one of them steel gloves!’]
Lee: Just slow down, will you?..
…We’re not even sure that those detonators are anywhere near the place. I’m not gonna risk scaring those people off by sending the Marines charging in the warehouse.
Petrovich: So what do you suggest? More discussions? More strategy sessions? [How about a chi chi?!]
Lee: Our best bet is to focus on that warehouse, set up surveillance teams, and wait.
Petrovich: I’m telling you right now, Stetson, we should go in there and-
Lee: Look, why don’t you just shut up and eat your taco, huh?
LOL. what a come back!
Petrovich thinks about it a moment.. then seems to do as Lee suggested rofl – it worked?!
next thing.. we see a car pull up with nasty baddie Rajmand at the wheel. He’s wearing his ‘I’m up to no good’ face! Muahaha
He watches from across the street. Henry’s Tacos is it. haaaa. random.
Rajmand looks around and sees a car coming down the street from his right.
It’s like he is deliberately waiting for that car to drive up to him before pulling out…
The red car swerves to avoid Rajmand, squealing and warning the three little spies, the red car swerves right into where they are sitting. guess that was Rajmand’s plan. whoooo.. Everyone knows fast food can kill ya! 🙂
Lee: … LOOK OUT!
(Lee pushes the two men out of the way)
Lots of flying ‘food’ (I use the term loosely), tables, chairs..
Man 1: Crazy woman!
[as we hear this, we see Rajmund driving away. Did he yell that out the car window? I don’t know. but poor lady!]
Woman: Hey, watch out what you’re doing! [Maybe this is the lady in the car yelling back at Rajmund? I don’t know..]
Man 2: Hey, what’s going on, man!
All three spies get up off the ground. Whoooo Lee helps up Petrovich.
They look around all intense.
[I’m hoping now Lee has gone for a dive onto the ground he can take off that awful white jacket!]
Later that evening, back on the plane in LA. We find Lee storming into the cabin, followed by the other two spies.
Petrovich: That was not an accident, Stetson!
Lee: Oh, brilliant deduction, Sherlock… [good call Lee. that was kind of lame Petrovich!]
…Now we’re getting too close, and someone can’t stand the heat. [I guess the Tacos were extra spicy!]
Petrovich: Which is nothing. This is unacceptable.
(Petrovich walks over to the other cabin to call for Nadine.)
…Nadine… [He says something to her in Russian. anyone?]
(he motions to Nadine to come in and join them, and sit next to Amanda at the console)
…This poorly played game of mouse and cat is over… [haaa Mouse and cat. love it] …I’m contacting the general-secretary to recommend I come back to Moscow or take unilateral action.
[Is Petrovich for real? or is this just a game? because I thought he was a top agent. What’s a little attempted murder?!! surely that’s a sign to any top agent they are on to something? tee hee.. One non accident and Petrovich is ready to leave? Get a back bone dudeovich! Boo hoo. This is all pretty lame and over the top – trying to make out like they are all about to go to war because a car tried to run them over?! Feels to me like the writers are grasping for a way to create tension when there isn’t any.. meh…]
Lee: You do that and you’re gonna have to go over me…
…and I guarantee it will not be easy or-
Amanda: You’re supposed to stop WWIII and you’re letting your egos get in the way…
[Amanda has a back bone! Go Amanda!]
(more quietly)…I suggest you get back to business…
(Amanda quietly sits back down.)
Chang: Thank you for your words of wisdom, Mrs. King-
Amanda: You’re very welcome.
Jin Sung enters speaking Mandarin or Chinese (anyone?) to Chang.
We see Petrovich and Lee react.
Jin Sung: (speaks in Chinese) then… I agree with Mrs. King…
Chang doesn’t argue with her. He leaves her to have her say.
… She is absolutely right!
[I guess Chang was about to say something to support his own ego? Jun sung interjected to cut it off? ]
Lee: You’re an agent?
Jun Sung: I am Colonel Jin Sung…
…Attaché to the premier and Chang’s superior.
[Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!! Hooray! SMK has decided to turn those stereotypes on their ear! I had completely forgotten this- and I love it!!!!! she’s Chang’s superior!!! tee hee.. awesome! And a Colonel no less ]
(Lee and Petrovich react. Petrovich throws up his hand in disgust and turns away.. lol. -this means war!!! tee hee.. )
.. But I am no agent!…
(to Amanda) …From your words, I must assume you are Mr. Stetson’s superior?
[Yes. Yes she is. Oh wait… ]
Amanda: Oh, no! I’m no agent. I’m civilian auxiliary.
[Booooooo!!!!!!!! I’m so over this civilian auxiliary stuff!.. ‘I wear a guest pass!!!’ Booooo!!!]
[what do you think Lee makes of this little assumption of Jin Sung’s?! tee hee.. she never does what I tell her to do!]
Jin Sung is silent a moment.. absorbing this new information.
Jin Sung: Ours is a joint effort, but it lacks direction….
(to Lee and Amanda) This is your country….
…We will trust your instincts,…
(to Petrovich)… agreed?
Petrovich: Da! [That was hard! He’s reluctant, but he does agree]
(We see Nadine react to this. awh..)
[She looks proud of Petrovich no?]
Lee: All right then. I suggest we get inside that operation…
…and find out who’s pulling the strings!
Petrovich: Impossible. They know us.
Amanda: They don’t know me…
…They know all of you, and they might notice Jin or Nadine, but they don’t know me…
…Look it’s a charity thing…
(Lee does not automatically look thrilled at this idea)
…There’ll be a lot of people there. There’s hardly any danger at all. And I fit right into any kind of charity event, I’ve done so many of them…
(Amanda nods to herself)… I’m the one for the job.
She’s right! Everyone knows she’s right! So fabulous to see Amanda stepping up here and putting herself forward. This is her country, this is her culture (charity events), she can do this better than anyone!
With a decision made, here’s a place to pause.. can’t wait to hear what you all make of these new developments!!!
