Hello all! time for more smk goodness!
We see an exterior of a hospital..
Have we seen this one before? I don’t really remember it. lol.
Inside, we find Francine on the phone. (CINDY: At least two bouquets of flowers. How long has Francine been in there anyway? in a hospital gown which is a much better outfit than the one she had on before)
Francine: Whatever he hit me with, they neutralized in time. I still feel a little bit dizzy, but ahhh, I can be released in a couple of hours.
[Neutralised it in time? was it going to kill her?! oh whatev.]
Billy: Good. What about the ID? Was it the Australian, Franklin Miller?
[I’m sorry wha???
Now here is proof that Iwsod doesn’t remember these episodes at all and doesn’t jump ahead!
Iwsod is Australian.
Iwsod knows what an Australian sounds like.
This? Ain’t it. ROFL!!!
Franklin Miller is an aussie? I’ve even been calling him a brit!!! whahahahaa.. Okay, maybe he was born in Australia and then quickly moved to the UK. yes that must be it. British accent, Australian citizenship rofl. Oh this makes me laugh and laugh. To all the North Americans: this is not an Australian accent we are hearing come out of the baddie’s mouth! ]
Francine: Billy, I only had a half a second to see him before I hit the pavement. But his colouring, his height, his accents, it could have been. [rofl. ‘accents’!]
Billy: Can you give me a green light on a positive ID?
[Umm Billy, Why don’t you ask Amanda? she saw him leaving the hotel. And she was not unconscious haaaaa. oh and rofl. The accent won’t tell you if this dude is Australian, trust me!] Francine: Not as green as the water.
[Best line of the episode!]
Billy: All right, we’ll just have to go with it. Now listen, just because you’re in the hospital doesn’t mean you’re off the clock (CINDY:OMG Billy! That’s pretty harsh, don’t ya think?) You get back in here pronto.
[Cindy you asked if this was the next day?
The last scene we saw Billy in he was listening to Dr Anderson’s report – and wearing a different suit and tie. So I’m guessing this is the next day. Francine stayed one night in hospital. LOL that her hair and make up are fully done anyway!
Francine is rolling her eyes and hanging up the phone… but I see a little smile sneak in there!
Another scene ends with a big sigh. Me thinks this episode should be called ‘It’s in the sighs’!
Rofl. This conversation is an interesting little insight into the Billy/Francine relationship – I love it! They are totally not addressing how she had a near miss and they keep it on business topics lol! I bet Billy sent at least one of those bouquets instead of addressing his worries directly haaaa.
I think Billy knows Francine is more comfortable with – ‘get back to the office we need you here’ rather than – ‘I was so worried! Take off whatever time you need we can do without you’!! rofl!! Francine doesn’t really want sentiment.. A sneaky ecstasy assortment of chocolates maybe, but don’t get all mushy. I get the sense that this is not the first time and.. it won’t be the last! ]
Back to IFF.. Time for a good old smk slideshow to a room full of agents where only Lee and Amanda really matter and the rest are just window dressing. rofl.
Billy: The Swiss have confirmed that the account belongs to Franklin Miller (CINDY:Hooray! He has a name!) , alias Jordan Parker, alias Starkill.
[LOL he has a name alright! He has three of them! Please, one name is enough. lol. Oh and so helpful of the Swiss to put a name to one of their anonymous Swiss bank accounts!
Oh.. and.. ‘Starkill’?! What the heck?! ]
Lee: Is this the Miller that’s been running with the Red Letter gang for last couple of years?
(CINDY: OMG – the dialogue is cracking me up!)
[Ha yeah, I love how they just throw in these random names. And.. Lee knew of him? haaaaa.. of course he did! ]
Billy: The same.
Amanda: What’s the Red Letter gang?
Lee: It’s a bunch of punks (CINDY:Bwa ha ha ha ha) who kill for politics and profit.
[Is Lee wearing a denim jacket?! it looks good!]
Billy: He did it so well, that he started freelancing last August. Now he’s just motivated by profit. [Am I suppose to know who the red letter gang is?]
Amanda: How did he get into the country?
Billy: We have no idea. But we do know he’s been living under our noses for six months.
[As this conversation continues, we can see the photos of Starkill continuing to churn over behind Billy. Rofl. yes we get it.. I really needed to see a photo of him mid getting into a car to ID him. ahem. We don’t need to see a hundred pics of this guy to ID him and for a professional killer there are an awful lot of pictures of him whahaahaaaa.]
Lee: Yeah, He’s smart and gutsy. [and photogenic!] Damn it all, we should have had him by now.
Billy: They’ve just pulled out a half dozen bullets from your car, Scarecrow. I’m surprised you’re still in one piece.
[Ahh Billy is so sentimental. I bet he sent the vette flowers to say he hopes it’s all better asap!]
Amanda: Sir, how’s Francine?
(CINDY:nice to see someone has noticed and cares Francine is not back)
[Hear hear! awh good on Amanda!!!]
Billy: Just a scratch of zenoprolene. She’s coming out of it fine.
[Is this drug real? anyone want to fill us in?! could it have killed her? Funny that Francine didn’t know what the drug was but Billy does.. maybe he is keeping that from her! ]
Amanda: I talked to Sally Boyer. She’ll be released from the hospital today.
[Phew, I’m glad someone found her… maybe now she can dump Carmine! Whahahahaa!!! Okay okay she’s in love with him and all that.. I guess..]
Billy: Good, Now here’s the bad news. Up till now, we’ve been running on a reserve water supply.
Lee: Well, how much time do we have?
Billy: We’ll be running dry in less than 12 hours.
Amanda: So to get Miller, we’re gonna have to turn the water back on.
Billy: That leaves us wide open. It’s too risky.
Lee: No, Billy. Billy, Amanda is right. Now Miller has been hired to do a job. He can play this game of cat and mouse with us forever.
Amanda: Yea, Sir, eventually, we’re gonna have to turn the water back on.
Lee: Yeah, and when we do, Miller will be waiting for us.
Billy: So, you want to flush him out now.
[CINDY: Nice one, FLUSH him out!]
[rofl!!! Yeah!! Great pun!!!!]
Lee: And put every agent we have in and around that purification center.
Billy: The bottom line is that we gamble he won’t get anything by us.
Billy: It’s a big gamble.
Amanda: If we lose it, we call the television channels, the radio stations, we do a media blitz, we warn everybody.
Lee: Yeah, anyway you look at it, Billy, if we lose, hundreds of thousands of people are gonna die.
Billy: Damn it, Scarecrow, you’re not making this easy for me.
Lee: If I draw to an inside straight, I don’t think about losing.
Billy: All right. I want every piece of security equipment and all the manpower we have around that water plant. Amanda, I want you to do a follow up on Sally Boyer. If there is anything, anything that can get us to Carmine, get on the horn to Lee.
[Just what are these other agents jotting down in their note books? Billy hasn’t given them anything to do- other than surround the plant. Rofl. Maybe they are all super interested to take note of all that Lee and Amanda are getting up to in solving the case. LOL. Maybe they are making a note – tell the spouse to leave town and not drink the water any time soon. LOL!
Ah! And I see the female extra next to Billy is the woman we saw behind Francine two days ago – in the exact same outfit. lol.]
Amanda: Yes, Sir.
Billy: I’ll inform the President and coordinate from here. Let’s move it.
(they all start leaving the room)
Billy: How’d you do the last time you drew to an inside straight?
[Lee. In jeans. nuff said.]
Lee: How do you think I got my car?
[Oh haaaa that’s funny. err I have no idea what they are even talking about.. something about taking risks and winning I guess.. and to be honest, don’t really care. lol!]
The scene ends here.
[I was thinking Franklin wanted Carmine so he could find out how he had managed to get around the security systems at the plant. He could then sell that ‘technology’- for a lot more than doing an attack himself.. and then whoever buys the secret can attack the plant. Seems that is not the case here! lol.. Rather, it seems the assumption is Franklin is being paid to get Carmine to infiltrate that water system again with an attack. Or have I misunderstood something here?!
If they’d gone with the first option – the agency would have had no chance of catching the baddies and no doubt Carmine would have been dead. so lol good thing Franklin isn’t going down that path!]
Back to Franklin Miller’s hotel…
Carmine is unconscious and there are vials and syringes on the table.
[uh oh. I guess he tortured him. The guy is a bit of a man child who is self centred and a wimp- but no one deserves this! Poor Carmine!]
Miller (on phone): Let’s just say my friend Carmine was a good sport. I think we’ve come up with something very interesting. It’s tasteless, odorless and very potent. (pause) Pleasure doing business with you, too.
[Gah! My eyes!!! that shirt!!!!]
(Miller, Mr Starkiller, splashes –non green- water on Carmine’s face)
Miller: Good morning. It’s moving day.
(Miller fills the glass with more water from the tap. Oh the irony.)
Carmine: [GROANS] You can’t poison the water.
[Especially not if you are gonna throw it in my face dude!]
Miller: It’s halfway there anyway, isn’t it?
[Oh more irony! This is why Carmine did the stunt in the first place, because it was on it’s way to becoming poison.. and now – Carmine is going to be forced to finish the job?! this is probably the worst kind of torture for Carmine. Awful! Kind of reminds me of Alan Chamberlain being forced to bring harm to the Declaration of Independence – when his life’s work was protecting and caring for such documents.. he resisted.. what will Carmine do?]
Carmine: People will die.
Miller: And a couple of Libyans will have their revenge, and I’ll have a million dollars… [Is that all?! LOL] …It’s a neat contract, don’t you think? Look at it this way, You’ll get a second chance to test this great concept of yours.
[Ohhh so it’s the Libyans. Um. does anyone really care? me no. And LOL Miller already has his million bucks. They put it in his account before he’d done the job – we learned this earlier– so err these Libyans are pretty dumb!]
Carmine: I’m not doing this anymore. I’m done. (Miller breaks his water glass against the table and holds it to Carmine’s face)
Miller: You’ll do what I tell you to do, when I tell you or there won’t be anything left of you but one last scream.
The scene ends here.
Okay, so what if Carmine dies.. he saves the lives of Washington DC residents no? His parents? His girlfriend? The water? Amanda has shown much more courage when her life has been at stake! lol. I’m sooo mean aren’t I?! haaaaa..
I would have thought Miller would have hung on to the girlfriend for insurance. But seems like maybe just threatening Carmine is enough.
Okay he is pretty drugged up, maybe he can’t process all this… Poor guy!
Time for a pause – thoughts anyone???
