Back after the break.. and we finally get to hear- what the hell Amanda is doing there – err as Lee posed the question
[Looks like not only did Amanda break into his house, she broke into the vette and moved it too! Here’s where it was parked:
haaa! There’s no holding Amanda back now! Oh and does Amanda have a new car too? or did she have that back in season 3?]
Back from the commercial break and we find Lee and Amanda exactly where we left them.
Lee gets off Amanda. LOL and sits on the edge of the bed.
Lee: Well, how did you get in here anyway?
Amanda: Lock pick. Standard issue.
[LOL at Lee’s expression when hearing this – man, now Amanda has these new skills things are different! lol. but hey, if Amanda could get in baddies could get in.]
(Amanda joins Lee on the edge of the bed.)
Lee: I’m gonna have to do something about that.
[Yeah give her a key! ]
Amanda: Look, I know this is about your mom and dad.
Lee: And what makes you think that?!
Amanda: Well, their pictures all over the living room,… (Amanda seems to point to something on Lee’s bedside table off camera)
…and besides that, I saw the CIA folders on your desk….
….I mean, you know,…
…I didn’t mean to snoop, but I snooped. I’m sorry, I snooped. I did.
Lee (at the same time calmly): So you snooped. Yeah. Mm-hm.
[So interesting.. look at the image above – they are mirroring each other! Here while Amanda confesses to intruding, they are still mirroring each other and totally into each other – signs are good they’ll be okay! ]
Lee: This is something that’s very personal…
…Can’t you just leave it at that?
Amanda calmly and slowly: No, because when somebody that I care about hurts, I hurt too.
[Awh!!! Well this really stops Lee short from his wish for privacy! I think Amanda’s gentleness here, rather than demands, is what touches him these two are so sweet!]
(Lee totally softens!)
Lee pauses. Amanda’s silent, waiting.
Lee: I’ve never told anyone…
…I never leaned on anybody, even when I needed to.
[Yeah you did back in Wizard no?! Your not superman.. your just a man? I guess that wasn’t leaning?! This aside, I’m guessing this is a major unique turning point for Lee.. Maybe as significant as taking that next step into romance (officially!)]
Amanda quickly and calmly: You can lean on me,…
[I love how Amanda approaches this, it’s not about her need to hear what’s wrong, it’s all about Lee’s need, and being there for Lee – she could have gone the whole girlfriend needs to know what’s happening!!! but she didn’t. good on Amanda]
…I’m a lot stronger than I look.
(Lee responds with a smile of his own Awh!!)
[I think Lee’s thinking: Yes you are!]
Lee starts shifting around, still smiling, and kinda shaking his head.. he chuckles to himself..
(Amanda waits silently for his answer.)
(Lee holds out his hand to her.)
Lee: Let’s take a walk.
(she takes his hand)
(Lee smiles and the scene ends there).
Whatever has been going on with Lee, and whatever boundaries Amanda may have crossed that she shouldn’t – it’s a true sign of a good relationship when they can talk things out, and forgive, and put the other first! This wonderful relationship is what the show does soo very well!
Next, Lee and Amanda are walking in the park.
Lee: That file I just got?
Lee: It’s a follow-up to reports from an undisclosed source saying that my mother and father were double agents during the war.
Amanda: Oh, come on now; you know that isn’t true.
[In Amanda’s world, she probably could assume her relatives weren’t bad guys or spies! In Lee’s world.. who knows! No wonder Lee has trust issues! No wonder Lee initially kept this from Amanda. It’s starting to make sense to me..]
Lee snaps back: How do I know that?! [lol Lee just read my mind! Papa Stetson did have a moustache – SMK might have been trying to play up the suspense here with whether Lee’s parents really were good guys.. He had a moustache! He may be a bad guy! gah! ]
Amanda quietly, carefully responds: Well, I mean, you don’t – you don’t know…
…I ….I guess you’ll just have to… to prove it…
…I mean, are you willing to do that?
(Lee pauses then continues)
…Amanda, there’s this nightmare that I’ve …that I’ve had ever since I was a boy, and I’ve been having it a lot lately….I’m, I’m looking for my mother and father and…all of a sudden this monster comes after me and… I run, and I run and I run away from him. And I get to this door, but it’s locked. Just as this monster is about to grab me. I wake up…
…Now, I, I know that this door…means something;..
…it’s important, Amanda…
…Now, I have an idea…
(Lee reaches for Amanda suddenly much more upbeat and determined!)
…. Do you really wanna help me?
…That’s a pretty silly question.
Lee: Then you’re really…gonna have to trust me.
Amanda silently nods. Of course she’ll trust you – she always has since she met you Can’t wait to hear what you all think!
I think Amanda is incapable of saying no to Lee – I think she’d do anything for him How could you resist?!
He’s put his trust in her and shared what’s going on..
She’s absolutely going to trust him also..
I get the sense that they are very grateful for what they have together – These two are so swoony!
Lastly, I’m thrilled to have a scene between these two in the great outdoors!
I enjoy watching the others in this park – I imagine they are all warners bros extras.. did you see the boy who had his big moment right behind Lee and Amanda-
(around where Lee is saying ‘How do I know that?’) he’s on camera, someone sends the ball his way – and he flubs kicking the ball and misses it entirely! whahahaha.. I can imagine him thinking he’ll tell all his friends! then.. when it aired, he found out they used the take where he flubbed the kick! tee hee..
Also LOL at the couple behind them, I think they kiss or something,
right as Lee talks about the monster in his dreams! lol..
I cannot wait to hear what you all think. bye for now!
