13/20 Season Three, Episode 22: All the World’s a Stage–Scarecrow and Mrs King

Back to the Potomac Plaza Hotel. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001832866
We zoom in on a balcony room. It’s Tony and Maria’s room. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001836269
Their room seems to have two sets of balconies one overlooking the car park, and one overlooking the pool Winking smile lol.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001838271
Tony sniffs the champagne. Takes out his pen and walks over to join passed out Maria.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001845078
Ugh. I’m not a fan of Tony. I don’t care what they do to his play – he shouldn’t do this to Maria and it’s not okay!

I hope Maria dumps him if she survives! [her body guard IMHO will happily take his place haaa]

Tony ominously stands over her – doing something to his pen.. I can’t see what.. is it an injection? Is he going to kill her??!!! 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001850483
The phone rings.
Tony: Hello.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001855288
Valentine: Uh hello Tony, um, listen I imagine you must be having second thoughts about this right now, but let me assure you, that unless you, go through with this, neither you nor Dr Von Clausen will leave this hotel alive.
[Ah so Tony was having a moment of doubt here, after drugging her and before doing the next thing whatever that is! -Kill her??!!]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001866499
Valentine seems uncomfortable making this call. Krutiov watches on.. then gives a nod of approval once the call is finished. He really is a puppet master!
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001871304
It’s implied Krutiov has told Valentine exactly what to say and do. Krutiov is probably getting Valentine to do things he wouldn’t usually do – just like with Tony (Then again I don’t know if the usual is bad guy or good guy for Valentine!) Is Valentine doing it for money? No sure..
So now we up the stakes with death threats. Tony never should have agreed to whatever has been asked of him. I’ve got no sympathy for the guy!
But if smk tries to make out he’s a hero for seeing this through to save Maria? I will gag!!!

Tony puts the phone down like it’s red hot!
[Why can’t Tony contact the body guards and get her safely away?!]
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001878111
He returns to Maria… and injects her with the needle pen!
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001890123
[Oh drat. that was a needle in the pen? Oh this is too awful to watch! Poor Maria!
What do you make of Tony here? ]

Tony pulls out a piece of paper and a tape recorder as Maria seems to rouse from unconsciousness.
Tony holds the tape recorder up to Maria and presses record. He reads out loud from the paper: 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001905538
Tony: Good morning, welcome to the Strategic Defence Initiative Task Force review. I’ll turn this meeting over to Dr. Von Clausen, who will give us a summary of the project to date. (He presses record – again? I don’t know. whatever.)  Maria?3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001920954
(doped up Maria lifts herself up higher in her chair to address the meeting)
Maria: Thank you Dr.Weber. The D14 laser, has a G Factor of 5.444 under a full load.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001930563
Tony seems to look on a bit stunned that this is actually working.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001937771 I wonder if he was hoping if he did this that it wouldn’t work? Right now I’m not feeling any sympathy for Mr I agreed to drug my girlfriend so my play wouldn’t be destroyed! Mon Dieu, Mon Dieu.
Maybe he’ll be able to redeem himself by the end of this ep! But.. at this stage, I’m dubious!
Anyway, the scene ends there.

LOL a fun little edit here, as we move immediately on to two innocent young girls in the suburbs calling out: Hello Mrs King!
the lovely kiddies are happy and friendly while these despicable things are going on in the world!
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001943977
Great to see some suburban kiddies getting a line Winking smile
Amanda steps out of her front yard greeting them:
Amanda: Hello girls!
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001946980
She has changed clothes.. Hey how did she explain returning home soaking wet to Dotty? we don’t get the pleasure of finding out!
Hmm much better outfit.. still massive shoulder pads. but I can forgive that, as overall I think it’s a pretty non-offensive outfit Smile

After the kiddies have wandered by,…
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001950984
Amanda continues on toward the vette, and seems to pay no attention whatsoever to the massive limo that’s parked right next to her driveway. Yep that always happens!!
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001952185
Oh rofl!
I’m surprised Dotty hadn’t told the whole neighbourhood it was there! that would have been fun! Winking smile All the grannies could have congregated!
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001953186
She only seems to realise it’s there when Mischa calls out to her: Mischa: Excuse me Miss?
Amanda: Yeah?
Mischa: Do you know where Baldwin Park is?
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001954387
Amanda: Yeah, you made a wrong turn way…3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001954988
(Amanda takes the map and turns toward Baldwin Park)
[She seems to be in a bit of a hurry, so isn’t too cautious here]
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001956589(We see Mischa has a gun hiding under the map)
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001956990
He turns nasty. Grabs her arm.. she turns.. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001957390
She sees the gun. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001957991
Amanda drops the map.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001958391
Mischa : Don’t make a sound…
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001958792
…or you’re dead….
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001960193
…Now move….
Mischa walks her to the back door.
LOL it seems Amanda stands there with her two hands
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001961995together in front of her before we even hear the handcuffs! it’s like she knew she would be cuffed before she should have lol. But whatev.
I guess Amanda is hoping she’ll be cuffed in the front!
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001966399
he does. Hoorah! Cuffs now on.. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001968001
He opens the back door.
…Get in.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001971204
He shoves her into the back of limo.
[This Mischa is pretty awful. I hope he is nabbed in a slow and painful manner Winking smile ]
Amanda finds already passed out Lee is there.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001973006
What do you make of her reaction to seeing Lee there?
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001976409
I’m seeing a mix of – uh oh! we’re in really big trouble! and.. Phew. we are together – I don’t need to worry about how Lee will find me. What do you think? 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001977210
Mischa slams the door and drives off. We see him pass the empty corvette left on the side of the road.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001988221
[anyone half expect the vette to follow Lee?! tee hee]

Back to the love (gone wrong) nest.. we find Maria is passed out on a couch. Tony kisses her. I think we are suppose to believe he really has genuine feelings for Maria, but for me – it doesn’t really all fit well.. maybe I didn’t see enough of a struggle with himself earlier.. I don’t know!
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001994427
He picks up the tape recorder. .. and has an idea.
He calls the theatre and gets his voice mail. “Hi. This is Tony Martinet. I’m not here right now so please leave a message.”
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002024124
He starts to play the tape -Maria’s voice says “Thank you Dr Weber, The D-14 laser has a G factor of five”,
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002021521
recording it onto his answering machine.
We’ll pause here! Any thoughts so far everyone?

12/20 Season Three, Episode 22: All the World’s a Stage–Scarecrow and Mrs King

Back to the love nest.. Lee and Amanda are carrying out the seamy side of secret agent work watching Tony.

Tony reconnects the red rose’s reservoir and starts to pour champagne into two glasses (one of which he put something in- uh oh). Maria returns from her room, holding up her new ‘little’ lingerie.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001710844
Maria
: Hmmm

Tony: Ah, I’ll drink to that.
Tony turns to pick up the two champagne flutes and hands one to Maria.

[LOL I thought she was going to come out wearing it but then I realised oh yeah this is smk! Ahh I love 80’s TV that didn’t hit us over the head with the sexy times Winking smile
I feel bad enough for Maria already – that she’s being watched, Tony’s up to no good etc. At least she was spared having her photo taken in the little outfit Winking smile ]

We cut back to Lee reacting to this series of events Winking smile
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001711244
LOL at Lee’s reaction to the lingerie Winking smile
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001712645
He seems to think whooo nice!
[Bet he’s picturing Amanda in it, she did say something about black lingerie to Princess Penny didn’t she?! Not that Lee would know! lol maybe he was listening at the window back then and heard more than we thought?! Winking smile tee hee.. anyway focus on this episode Iwsod! ]

We see Lee and Amanda’s point of view, as Tony hands one of the flutes to Maria.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001713113
LOL probably good Maria didn’t change given they are standing in front of the balcony too lol!
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001717117
Lee snaps a picture of Tony and Maria drinking.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001717717
What did Tony put in there? Is Maria gonna die?!
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001719719
Lee’s reaction to the drinking seems a bit weird. Would fit better with reacting to the lingerie maybe?

Anyway, Lee takes more pics and then looks up to the roof..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001721121
…the watchers are being watched!
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001724124
Uh oh..
The security guy gets on his walkie talkie..
[Is he with Maria’s security? or with Valentine/Krutiov’s?]
Lee: Yeah we’ve got an audience.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001725125
There’s banging on Lee & Amanda’s door.
[If this is the Potomac Plaza Hotel, why is there a big M on the door? aka.. Marriott? Winking smile tee hee.. bet Marriott were happy Winking smile ]
Lee: This is the only way.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001726926
(Lee points outwards over the balcony. He doesn’t wait for Amanda to approve. lol they really don’t have a choice!)
They awkwardly start climbing over the railings..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001730130
Ugh. Lee’s got the grandpa shoes on. Just wrong..
Ah there’s a pool below. Phew!
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001731331
That poor lady in the banana lounge is going to get splashed Winking smile 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001732932
Amanda: Can we discuss this?3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001733733
Lee: Yeah, sure later!
[As Amanda would say – Later means never Winking smile anyone remember what ep that was?! Smile ]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001735335
Whooo hooooo!!!

A great should out to this season 2 moment 🙂  2.04 THE LEGEND OF DAS GEISTERSCHLOSS.avi_001551951
This all leaves us with a very important question:
Whooo will we get a corresponding wet Lee with shirt half off moment??!!!
2.04 THE LEGEND OF DAS GEISTERSCHLOSS.avi_001570737
I bet you were thinking the question was will they survive? or will they both hit the pool okay?! tee hee.. yeah that never seems to be a cause of concern! Happily! Smile 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001736136
They’ll be okay! Stunt Lee and Amanda land in the pool below.
Krutiov comes rushing out onto a balcony. Ahhhh so it was Krutiov. Krutiov and Valentine. Uh oh!!!
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001742142
Woman: Are they hurt?3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001742342
Someone tell Leatherneck that Amanda gets extra credits for this toward her Entry and Escape course!!!
I love to see a drama filled escape.. reminds of old smk! lol or maybe I should phrase it as being ‘classic’ smk! Smile 

As they watch Lee and Amanda exit the pool below, Valentine comments.. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001749149
Valentine: That’s the reporter that I told you about, and a woman that I saw at the theatre. [rofl he has very good eyes!]
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001753753
(Lee helps Amanda out of the pool Smile )
Krutiov: That “reporter” is Lee Stetson, an American agent!3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001754554
[Krutiov has excellent eyes also! LOL!
Ahhhh Krutiov seems to rue having to work with Amateurs]
Krutiov bends down to pick up his handy telephone that randomly sits on the balcony. He makes a call.
Krutiov: Mischa, I have an errand for you.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001761761
Krutiov is calm, and menacing.. he does that well. He’s….. Ruthless!!!!!
I wonder if Tony and Maria heard all the ruckus?

We cut to (stunt) Lee and Amanda running toward the vette
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001764164
and getting in. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001776576
As they drive out a limo pulls behind them and we see errand boy/script delivery boy Mischa is following them.. Uh oh! 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001781381
Is it just me or in smk, is the limo driver always up to no good? [Okay except maybe Lee the chauffeur in SAAB?]
SAAB.avi_001958822
Well we can ponder that during the commercial break…. dumm deee dumm.. It’s been a while since I’ve done an ad break.
ad1
Fun!! I just hope you can read the quotes..
LOL umm if anyone is ever inspired to do one please go for it and let me know Smile
Back from the break and moving on..
At IFF, we find Billy sitting on his desk talking on the phone to Lee..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001794994
Billy: Scarecrow, there is no law against a man and woman having a tryst.
[rofl as if Lee of all people would think that Winking smile tee hee..]
Lee: With a ton of muscle outside?… [Ummm drugs or poison or something in the ladies’ glass? I’m pretty sure there’s a law against that!]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001797197
[Hoorah! Okay so it’s not wet open shirt Lee…but rumpled and a bit scruffy Lee will suffice Winking smile ]
…What were they for, to help set the mood?…
(The shot widens, Lee is parked out front of Amanda’s… and Mischa the limo driver pulls up)
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001799199
…Remember, Billy, we saw Martinet drug the woman’s drink...[LOL shouldn’t that be the first thing he mentions?! How does he know it’s a drug? why is it not a poison?]
…I’m telling ya, something is going down. [rofl. great pun. yeah! the drug is going down well with that champagne!]

We cut back to Billy. Francine is taking a break from placing files on his desk, and letting this nice lady who prefers to stay incognito do it. Nope, nothing suspicious here! 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001808408
Billy: Alright lets assume that there is, and I’m not saying I believe that yet! We cannot afford to tip our hand to Krutiov.
Lee: All right, agreed, agreed. Listen would you seen Francine to the Potomac Plaza to do her hooker number and a low profile surveillance?
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001814247
[Ahhhh to be known in your workplace for your ‘hooker number’ Francine works in a tough business!]
Billy: You got it. And as soon as Amanda gets changed, you get back here with those photos. If we can ID the woman, maybe we’ll really have something.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001821054
Lee: OK will do.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001827260

Lee hangs up and we see an ominous close up on Mischa staring ruuuuuthlessly at Lee in his car! 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001827460
Muahahahaha..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001831464
The scene ends here… Uh oh.

Surely Lee the super spy is going to notice a massive Limo parked out front of Amanda’s place? Pretty out of place for the suburbs – and he knows Krutiov is involved and has a limo!

Okay I’ll pause here for the moment. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

11/20 Season Three, Episode 22: All the World’s a Stage–Scarecrow and Mrs King

Tony arrives on the third floor, and joins Dr. Maria Von Clausen’s security men in the hallway.
Walter: Hello Mr. Martinet. Nice to see you again.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001534334
[the blonde security guy looks familiar.. Ah I think he was in that photo the Russians were looking at. Have we seen him anywhere else in smk? ]
Tony: Thank you.
Walter: Ah, you know the drill, Sir, I hate to do it but…
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001537337
Tony: Frisk away, Walter.
Walter pats Tony down while the other guard looks at the flower box. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001540940

Walter feels something in Tony’s pocket, and Tony removes a small tape player/recorder. Tony presses play and Vivaldi’s Four Seasons is playing.
Walter: Ah Dr Von Clausen’s favourite.
[Really? that’s music to accompany good lovin?! Maybe a romantic dinner.. but really? LOL what do you all think? Me thinks Walter is naïve  about what Maria gets up to with this Walter dude.  😉 tee hee.. ]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001546646
[Lots of grey going on here.. was this the fashionable colour of that year or something?!]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001554754
Walter removes Tony’s pen, clicks it and returns it to Tony’s jacket. [A playwright with a pen.. a pen Krutiov supplied.. uh oh… what does it do??!! Is this a play on the old ‘the pen is mightier than the sword’?! I’m in suspense about just what Tony has agreed to!!! Catch him Walter!!!]
Walter: I’ll bring her right up. Enjoy your evening Mr. Martinet. [Fail for Walter! 😉 ]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001563463
Lee and Amanda exit the elevator, round the corner and come across the two man security team letting Tony into a room. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001563763
Lee whispers: Martinet and some muscle thrown in…
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001568868
[Blind muscle, so don’t worry too much 😉 They don’t see bright red Amanda watching from down the hall?! ]
…Very interesting. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001573973
Lee looks behind him at the rooms and the hallway.. and quietly motions to Amanda to come with him.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001578478
They head down the opposite hall and around the corner.
[you know, I think Amanda may have shoulders that are broader than Lee’s with those shoulder pads and that vest! gah!]
Lee stops in front of a room.. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001585685
Lee: Here this should do it. If we can get inside maybe we can see inside Martinet’s room.
Amanda: Right.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001589289
Lee knocks on the door… they wait.. Amanda seems to agree it’s all clear. [I love that Lee looks to her for her opinion here!]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001592292
Then Lee picks the lock.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001594694
[I think Lee should have let Amanda have a go! lol.. but then I guess they don’t have time to delay..]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001597697
[here’s a hand close up for all you Lee hands fans! Hey did anyone see where he got the lock pick from? Did he have his manicure kit?!]
Lee: Yeah (success.. the door opens)
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001600400
Wow this is one fugly room. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001609409
They go to the balcony window.. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001626826
We see Tony across the way with his rose near the balcony.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001622922
Lee gets out a camera? 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001628328
Lee: This is perfect.

Back to the love nest, and Maria enters her room. Tony turns to look at her. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001634934

Maria: Hey sailor, new in town?
Tony: No, I’ve docked here before. 
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001636736
[Ewwwwww… docked here before? Is it just me or is that pretty clunky!! Especially for a playwright 😉
I keep thinking about Castille and Jean in Vigilante Mothers.. and here he is up to his old tricks! Me confused!!
Just what has Valentine told Tony he has to do??!!! GAH!!! Maybe Tony won’t carry it out… don’t do it Tony!! (Whatever ‘it’ is! 😉 ]
Maria: I remember, you have that tattoo that’s so much fun to find.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001641241
Maria puts her stuff down and runs over to Tony.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001644244
They kiss. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001645745
Poor Maria, she really likes this guy! Mon Dieu Mon Dieu!
We cut back to Lee and Amanda.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001646046
Lee’s using his teeny tiny camera.. and adjusting the focus to get a better look Winking smile 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001647547
We cut back to a view of the two love birds kissing
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001648148
– only they seem to have managed to kiss each other and move backwards toward the balcony door. Just so Lee and Amanda could get  better view haaaa.
Click! we cut to a view from Lee’s camera..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001650550
Amanda: This is embarrassing.
[I agree Amanda!! and great to see this side to Amanda hasn’t completely disappeared.. you know the side that felt awkward about invading the privacy of others?]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001651751
Lee: It’s the seamy side of secret agent work…
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001654154
[Interesting, have we heard Lee call this ‘secret agent’ work before? Usually they refer to spies don’t they? or agents? anyone?]
Lee turns slightly toward Amanda as he adds:
… Just be glad we’re…
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001655789
…not hiding under the bed..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001656289
Amanda gives Lee a look – eek!!!
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001656489
Lee pauses for a second as if he’s thinking to himself it’s a crazy business they are in.
From the look on Amanda’s face I’d say she agrees! 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001656990
he turns to look at Amanda..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001657791
and back again before he finishes his sentence here.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001658992
……it happens.

Yep, it’s one of those parts of the job Lee probably doesn’t like very much but accepts.
[I’m torn! this is pretty awful! but, there’s a part of me that would have loved to see how Lee and Amanda coped with this scenario! Winking smile Remember Lee hiding in the wardrobe of that cabin in ship of spies?! ]

Back inside the love nest. They stop kissing..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001661895
They enjoy looking at each other for a moment. Then, Maria goes to pick up her bag again adding:
Maria: I think you’re going to like my latest little number….emphasis on the “little”.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001669903
(She heads off to another room)
Hmm this love nest is a much nicer hotel room than the one Lee and Amanda are in!

Tony watches her leave the room. He heads over to the rose – and removes the little water reservoir attached to it. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001676810
He drips some of it into one of the champagne glasses.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001681614
Uh oh. I’m guessing that’s not water Winking smile oh no just what has he done? He isn’t going to kill her is he??!!! Looks like he is going to carry out this ‘treason’ after all… Noooooo!!! The ‘treason’ could be to kill Maria?!!

We cut back to Lee and Amanda. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001682315
Amanda: He put something in that glass.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001684117
Lee: Yes he did.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_001685618
[I love how Amanda can see it without the aid of a camera lense to zoom Winking smile though, I guess this camera doesn’t seem to have a zoom lense anyway?!]

Okay guys I’m going to pause here..
At this point I’m really not sure what to make of Tony  and this relationship with Maria [i.e. I’m STILL not sure what to make of it all!!].
It’s unclear to me if he really genuinely cares for her! And.. what he seems to have agreed to do for the sake of his career comeback! I mean when Valentine told him what to do we hear Tony complain it was treason- we didn’t hear him complain that Maria was someone he cared about Winking smile And when he put this stuff in the champagne glass there didn’t seem to be any interior struggle going on- where he fought with himself about carrying out this ‘treason’ – maybe he’s a cold blooded killer!!! Now that would be absurd!!!!

Maybe I’m influenced by this actor’s previous smk incarnation – Castille [ rofl – not really influenced by Niles the Butler! ]
What do you all think? anyone else worried at this point that Lee and Amanda are about to watch Tony kill this lady?!
