It’s tag time!!! I guess it’s been quite a while since we saw a tag, since part 1 didn’t really have one..Yes I am going to cover the tag in two posts.. but don’t worry – I will schedule the posts to publish so there are no delays between them! 🙂
Here we go!
We find Lee in the vette parked on a suburban street at night.
He’s watching something across the street.
Ah! Amanda’s!! We see Amanda followed by Joe coming out of her front door.
Amanda: Well, I don’t think I’ve seen the boys this well-behaved in an awful long time.
Joe: Hmmm.. Well, I sure enjoyed it. Well, that part at least.
Amanda: Maybe someday I can tell you what this was all about, Joe.
[Joe reaches up and takes Amanda by both arms – Just like Lee does.. and just in the way that makes Amanda melt when Lee does it -only she doesn’t reciprocate with the hands on his chest. phew! ]
Joe: Mmm… I know enough about the Agency to know that maybe I don’t wanna know.
they share a quiet moment.
Then, they give each other a quick peck. On the lips??!!
[so wrong!] but glad to see that at least their bodies are not touching..
[Ugh.. can’t wait to hear what you think of this guys!]
(We quickly cut to Lee..
He was watching..
and quickly looks away.) [Why didn’t I think of that?!
I think Lee’s cheek is going..
Jealous? what do you think? ]
Lee turns back to watch them say goodnight..
and Joe leaves.)
[He’s good at that sorry! couldn’t resist!! bad joke! Joe is supposedly a good guy.. okay okay.. life is not always black and white.. I’m just going to need to get use to this seeing Joe around thing. If I can avoid watching them kissy kissy I might cope okay.
Hmm I wonder if Lee is thinking the same thing I am?!]
Amanda: Good night.
(Amanda sees Joe off, and lets out a big sigh)
[I think she’s kind happy that’s done lol. but then, it might be that I want to see that ]
(Amanda heads back inside. We get one last look at Lee watching Amanda from a distance.)
[To me he looks totally smitten.. what does he look like to you here? do tell!]
Amanda joins the family in the kitchen..
Amanda: Okay, fellas, better get upstairs and do your homework.
(She and the boys share a group kiss.. and the boys head upstairs to do their homework with zero attitude or complaining!)
[Amanda should go on the run more often! ]
(Dotty is putting on an apron)
Dotty: I wish you’d met this Agent Melrose. He was polite, but threatening.
Dotty: Huh. I have a mind to write to somebody. [rofl! She’s always thinking of writing to somebody! 😉
Um so how was all this explained to Dotty? I would have liked to see that conversation! Sad to see Dotty not happy with Billy, when he was instrumental in protecting Amanda, and helped bring her home safe, well and innocent!]
Amanda: I’m sure he was just doing his job, Mother.
(Amanda’s busy clearing the dining room table, while Dotty gets busy with the dishes) [I thought Amanda had a dishwasher..]
Dotty: Oh. All this brouhaha about a couple of people from a film company.
(Behind Amanda, Lee taps on the window.
Amanda freezes, smiles slightly [she knows exactly what that noise is ]
She turns around to face Lee who gives her a massive grin.)
(we continue to hear Dotty jabbering away in the distance.. but watching this I can’t concentrate on a word she says )
Dotty : I mean, huh, is that how they spend our taxes? I don’t understand everything, I admit…
[It’s hard to focus on Dotty’s words with all this flirty stuff going on.. but lol at how Dotty admits she doesn’t understand everything!!! this humour has shades of season 1 no?]
(Amanda leans toward the window..)
[Just check out those dimples!!! He’s so happy to see her ]
(Amanda gives a sneaky little look back at Dotty.
She then motions to Lee to go around to the side) [– I guess she’s saying she’ll join him out there soon..]
(Lee gestures okay. Dotty continues talking… She could be speaking Russian here and I would not notice. Thank goodness KC transcribed her dialogue
(Lee mouths okay.. and [Oh my gosh.. Quick! Smelling salts!!!] Lee blows her a kiss!!!
And gives her a sweet smile..
Amanda smiles in response.)
[No swooning? She’s a strong woman!!!]
I think we could have had only this non verbal, through the back window tag and I would have felt very happy with it! haaaaa.. but.. we get more!
Dotty: … but people talking about traitor and fugitive, and you running off with some strange man, alone.
[Love how Lee blows the kiss right when Dotty is talking about Amanda running off with some strange man alone. Yes I managed to watch that and connect it to the dialogue- it took a few goes.. ahem.. but I got there in the end. Don’t worry Dotty if you knew the truth you’d be thrilled!]
Dotty: I’m supposed to just stand here and accept this as normal behaviour.
[If it’s running off with Lee? then yes, please do!]
(Amanda puts the dirty dishes down, not really looking Dotty in the eye, she rushes to the back door. lol she doesn’t respond to Dotty’s remarks!)
Amanda: The Ferguson’s dog’s in the backyard again, Mother. [rofl. Lee’s new nickname everyone: the Ferguson’s dog!]
Dotty: Oh. Get him if you can. [rofl she’s going to get him alright! haaaa!]
Amanda doesn’t wait around for Dotty to answer. LOL. Amanda heads out the backdoor looking around for Lee – she’s gonna get him!!! 🙂
Okay guys… I don’t want to rush this tag.. So I’ll pause here and be back soon with the final post for this massive two part episode – I cannot wait to hear your thoughts!
I’m currently away on holidays and will be reading your thoughts on my phone, but I won’t be able to respond till I get back… enjoy! bye!
