Let’s get started! 4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000082716
The episode opens with a view of a construction site.
A construction worker using a jackhammer manages to stumbles across human remains. 4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000153787
The cops show up…
Officer Jastrow confirms that there’s a full decomposed skeleton.
Officer Jastrow: … it doesn’t look like an old grave. Tell ‘em to roll the M.E’s wagon. Logan, shine the light on the arm….What is that?
As Jastrow descends down the ladder to investigate we see a plain clothed detective arrive – Lt. Detective Ron Trask. {He grimly surveys the scene..
..disturbing a whole bunch of evidence in the process, Jastrow opens a decomposing briefcase that is handcuffed to the corpse.}
4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000224357
Trask {peering into hole with flash light} : Hey, don’t they teach you guys how to handle evidence anymore?
Jastrow:
What are you doing here Lieutenant?
Trask: I heard it on the squawk. You guys can go, I’ll hold the fort till the lab boys get here. This wasn’t such an old building.
Jastrow:
6 years. They knocked down the parking garage to expand.
Trask:
Was there any identification on the body?
Jastrow:
No, it’s too wet. Its clothes are rotted off. There’s nothing left. Just this… 4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000239372{holds up weathered file with the words TOP SECRET across the front speaks into his walkie talkie}
Dispatch this is fourteen Edgar. The records can proceed with a temp ID. The dead man is Lee Stetson.
The scene ends there.  Duh Duh Duhhhhhhh…

We cut to not dead Lee Stetson driving his corvette.
[oh phew. He’s okay!] 

{Lee pulls up to Amanda’s in his Corvette as Jamie comes out the front door.}
Jamie: Hi.
Lee: Hi, how are you doing?
Jamie:
Pretty good. Mom will be out in a minute, she is on the phone with my dad.
Lee {does not look pleased}: Ahh.
[Cindy thinks Lee doesn’t look pleased, I’m not seeing it, I’m just seeing whooo awkward I’ve gotta make conversation with Jamie! What do you see?] 4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000258558
Jamie: Cool car. Think I could have a ride sometime?4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000262162
Lee:
Yeah, sure. Tell you what. Uh, next time I take her out on the track…you come along and we’ll turn a few laps. How about that?4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000268168
Jamie: Great.
4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000269369{{CINDY:Oh Jamie, that sweater and those glasses. Yikes}}
[I agree with Cindy- eek! I think both Lee and Jamie are a little shy with each other here and it’s extremely cute.
How novel is it to see these two share a scene together! ]
{Philip the Twit emerges from the house}
Philip the Twit {yelling} : Hey, you forgot your lunch.4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000271371
{And then DROPS IT ON THE GROUND}4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000273173
{{CINDY:seriously, if any of us pulled that crap on our siblings, we would still be grounded.}}
Jamie: Thanks alot!
[Honestly, Philip does not endear himself to me AT ALL!!! ‘Twit’ is spot on Cindy! ]
Twit: No problem {to Lee} Hey, how you doing? Uh, Mom’s on the phone.
Lee:
Ah, I know, talking to your dad.
Twit: Hey, nice car. You know for the ladies…
[umm Lee is his mother’s boyfriend!! what is he supposed to say to this? Hmmm.. good decision Lee- stay silent! don’t respond!]{{CINDY:UGH}}…How about popping the hood? 4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000284184
{{CINDY:
How about not.}}
[Yeah there’s a part of me silently screaming: nooooo Lee tell him no!! I think Lee is not really wanting to.. ] 4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000284584
Lee: Yeah, I guess we could pop the hood
{Lee gives Twit the side stink eye} 4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000285185
Twit: Ready! {Lee pops the hood} 4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000291391
{{CINDY:why do I think this was to show off the car – product placement anyone?}}
Twit: Heavy, huh?4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000295595
[rofl. Mr (Twit) I’m the alpha here struggles to lift the hood. haaaa this is delicious! Lee has to  help him!]
Lee: Easy, Easy, easy. UH, Do you know anything about a V-8?
Twit: More or less.
[Yeah! it’s tomato juice! right?]
{{CINDY:seriously? Lose the smug. Kudos to Paul Stout for his acting ability, because I really want to throttle him}}4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000299199
{Dotty leaves the house through the front door}
Dotty: Ah, Good morning, Lee.
Lee: Good morning.
Dotty:
Amanda is talking to Joe. Talk talk talk talk talk talk they talk more now than they did when they were dating. 4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000303937
{{CINDY:OUCH, Dotty – Are you doing this on purpose? Hoping to make Lee jealous?}}
Lee: Ha.4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000307540
[Lee seems to be politely smiling as Dotty chats… but nervously glances at Philip still pottering with the car..] 4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000309142
Dotty: Oh, I wouldn’t let him stay too long underneath that hood. He frightens my mechanic.4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000310744
Lee:
Oh yeah? {to Philip} Hey!
[Hearing that, Lee doesn’t pull his punches. lol. Philip backs away!]4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000312946
Dotty: Come on, boys come on, get your lunches, let’s go and help me put the boxes in the car.
Everyone gets moving, there’s lots of passing around of stuff, activity, and Amanda exits the house and joins in. We hear snippets about how there’s a rodent in a box that Jamie has to give to Frank.. and get it off Dotty’s front seat haaaaa…. and it seems Dotty is off to a rummage sale.4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000322555
Amanda:
Philip, I found your math homework wadded up in the bottom of your gym bag. We’ll talk about it tonight.
[Ewww I would not want to dig into Philip’s gym bag. Maybe that’s what Philip was counting on haaa.. But Amanda is made of strong stuff!!!! … I hope Amanda punishes him! lol]4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000329562
Dotty: {to Lee} Ah, take care, in case he crossed any wires.
Lee: Ha Ha.
4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000336569Philip:
Oh by the way, I buzzed up your fuel injector.
{{CINDY:and here I thought I couldn’t like him any less}}

[Amanda! you need to ‘have a talk’ with Philip about doing stuff to other people’s cars without their permission!! Oh oh and while you are at it.. what about giving Philip a few tips on how to not be a brat!]
Lee: You what!?!4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000336770
Philip: See you later!
Dotty:
{off screen} Oh.4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000340373
Lee {mutters} : Touch that car again and it’ll be the last thing you ever touch.
{walks around the car}4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000344577 …Here we go. {Gets in the car, turns the ignition and luckily it doesn’t blow up. They drive away}
[Lol Lee and Amanda seem to share a little look – like ah good it started!] 4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000349783
Amanda: Sorry, I got hung up on the phone.
[rofl. What a pun…  If only you had actually hung up]
Lee: What’s Joe up to these days?4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000356990
Amanda:
I don’t know, he wants to have lunch. I think he’s got something on his mind.
Lee: Yeah, you.
[lol. I don’t know why I find this funny but I do. Lee is totally putting it out there!]4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000366199
Amanda: Oh come on.
Lee: I’ve been waiting for it –
Amanda:
Oh come on! 4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000366800
Lee: – since he came back.
Amanda:
I‘m not even gonna talk about that.4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000371004
Lee:
mm-hm. Hope springs eternal as they say, right? Remember what he said?
Amanda:
Are you kidding?
Lee:
No. You’re a different woman than the one he left behind.… 4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000380013
[Whoooo she told him about that?! Kudos to SMK for this continuity! I actually find this really endearing, Lee sees Amanda as a great catch!!! So of course Joe is going to want her back!!  tee hee.. ]
…You’re more exciting, more vibrant, more beautiful {{CINDY: okay this is an appropriate way to show a jealous Lee}}
[This moment immediately reminded me of this:
43
Lee: Amanda.. exotic… mysterious.. ! And yes – totally an excuse for Lee in a tux!]
Amanda: I’ll have to agree with that.4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000385819
[haaaaaa you go Amanda!!!! haaaa]
Lee: Amanda, I am a man, okay?… [Cindy!  was sure you would say something about that line haaaa!] …I know these things. You’re a beautiful woman and he wants you back.
[Anyone want to bet money this line was in this episode’s promo??!!]
Amanda: You’re serious! {Chuckles in disbelief} I can’t believe it. 4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000393026
[Yup… Lee is serious!
Is he worried Amanda could leave him?? Hmmm..
Amanda doesn’t seem at all interested in thinking about taking Joe back. 4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000395028
I’ll never get enough of Lee telling Amanda he’s a man.. ahem.. and she’s a beautiful woman! haaaaa…]
The scene ends here.

Time to find out about the baddies!
We cut to an evil looking golf cart at an evil looking golf course.
Seems these two, Weathers and Trasks have worked together for years. Probably doing… evil!
4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000413847
Trask steals ‘International security passports’ and then Weathers sells them. This is pretty risky, but Trask thinks it’s worth it… because:  This is the first international security passport on the market in four years.

{The golf cart now parks in a funicular and starts it’s thrilling ride up the hill at a breakneck speed of 2 mph. Trask looks around confused.} 4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000423056
[Haaaa Cindy, I love this description! I hope we get to see these high speed golf carts have a chase!] Weathers: There will be a whole new round of questions. The discovery of Luther’s body can’t help but raise them.
Trask:
Sure. And I’m in a perfect position to make sure nobody gets any answers. You can get top dollar for it. It’s perfect. (hands passport over) 4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000444678
I took it, and everything that could connect the body to it… before the lab boys or the homicide squad could take a look.
We see a close up of Lee’s ISP.
4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000451084
[Interesting details! Did we see Lee’s birth date before? Is it 17 June, 1950? Oh haaaa this ISP would have expired by now Smile ]
Weathers: Yeah. You shot that man 6 years ago because you were afraid that he was losing his nerve and was going to expose us… (He coughs and hands the ISP back.) …He could still do it … from the grave. {{CINDY: Weathers is obviously the brains in this little group}}
Trask: Come on, it’s a perfect ISP, Weathers. It’s worth a half a million dollars. Come on. You still like money. I need it. Find us a customer so we can cash in.
{The funicular finally reaches the ⅚ mark up the hill.}
Weathers: Find a customer? I got a waiting list. Okay, let me make a call. But you know these people, if it isn’t clean……they’ll come after us.
Trask: Move on it, Weathers. It gets dirtier every day. I’ll cover the trail. And if Lee Stetson comes around snooping, I’ll cover him too.4.14 Rumors of my Death.avi_000497664
[Okay! we’ve got greedy, ruthless baddies who aren’t afraid to kill Lee Stetson if he gets in the way of making money. lol. As we’ve seen many times before haaaa]

I’ll pause here with this episode…
Sooooo do tell! What are you thinking of this ep so far?
Does anyone remember watching this as a child or teenager? What did you think of Philip with his attitude?! I only saw it as an adult.. and.. No thank you!!

Still.. I just keep focusing back on this haircut on Lee Stetson… Hmmmm I think it is Peak Lee Stetson hair! haaaa..
What’s your Peak Lee Stetson? [sorry if we are not up to it yet and you can’t say!]
Can’t wait to hear from you – Sorry I probably won’t reply to comments, forgive me- but I’ve got hand issues I’m working on that make typing hard. Thank goodness I wrote up this episode before it happened!! I’m trying hard to heal so I start working on the next episode asap! I’m so glad we are walking again- together!!!!

7/7 Season Four: Episode Thirteen- Promises to Keep-Scarecrow & Mrs King

Back at Thatcher’s farm… TP is staying in the car.. lol..
We see Amanda at a distance on her walkie talkie reporting that they are all talking in the field, and that TP had gotten into a limo. 4.13PTK.avi_002489923_thumb
Lee:Let’s hope he stays there. Anytime you’re ready.
[What, stay in the car? whahahahaaa!! is that deliberate?!]

(TP watches on from the limo as the men have their meeting. 4.13PTK.avi_002509009_thumb
Jordan identifies TP as the problem they are having with their business.)
Jordan: …Mr. Aquinas is nothing if not careful. Surprising he tipped his hand… [I have no idea how he has tipped his hand, and what it is that’s given him away!] …Alright, get what information you can out of him, then make a very public example of his death. Gentlemen, we’ve used up our time.

(The yellow van approaches.
[Stealthy! haaaa! I guess its actually handy to grab their attention…]
The three baddies decide they can take it on as it’s not the main forces – so they don’t flea they hunker down.
[Why didn’t they question why someone was arriving ahead of the main team? whatev.]
Amanda is guiding the yellow truck by remote. and it gets shot up by the baddies big time.
[Hope those horses don’t get hurt!!] 4.13PTK.avi_002585485_thumb
They find the truck empty when it comes to a stop. 4.13PTK.avi_002575875_thumb
[Then, there’s a massive fly that enters the scene.]
Buzzzz Buzzzzz Buzzzzzz…
Oh wait, no that buzzing is Lee on his gyrocopter! He flies around and draws fire.. shooting happens… Lee shoots…
4.13PTK.avi_002594294_thumb
the baddies shoot.. 4.13PTK.avi_002610310_thumb
The machine gun jams. [What luck. When are baddies gonna learn to stop buying their guns at baddies r us?!]
We see evil genius Jordan get in the limo driver’s seat, the same limo where TP has been told to stay. LOL
TP leave the limo out the back door, and Jordan drives off 4.13PTK.avi_002640340_thumb
– TP leaves his folded up coat bomb on the back seat. 4.13PTK.avi_002643143_thumb
Lee lands as Jordan drives off. 4.13PTK.avi_002653953_thumb
Lee shoots at Jordan as he drives away but it makes no difference.
Lee takes off his helmet and yells to TP.
Lee: get out of the way TP! He’s headed right for ya!
[how that is possible when he literally just got out of it I dont know]4.13PTK.avi_002663163_thumb
With the limo headed for TP, TP presses the button. [Not the panic button! The coat button….oh hang on, no that’s not right…. the ummm coat bomb button!]4.13PTK.avi_002666766_thumb
His bomb goes off…
[a moderately sized boom boom. Funny the cabin was a more impressive boom boom…]4.13PTK.avi_002668368_thumb
Lee rushes over to join TP.
4.13PTK.avi_002673573_thumb
TP seems to be a bit stunned.. 4.13PTK.avi_002675175_thumb
also a little gleeful?? relieved and pleased?4.13PTK.avi_002678778_thumb
[What’s going on for Lee here? 4.13PTK.avi_002679979_thumb
I like to think he’s remembering his own little moment of getting to kill his parent’s killer!
4.13PTK.avi_002681981_thumb
Lee puts a comforting arm around TP.. and the scene ends.)
[Soooo is this murder?! It didn’t seem like the car was that close..

Hey! we still don’t know how TP gave himself away!!! Or LOL maybe I just missed it, that’s always possible! Was there anything in the script about this?

Well let’s put all this revenge, justice, tragedy etc. behind us: it’s tag time!
(Back to the agency, we find Lee and Amanda in the elevator.)
[Wow. I actually have zero memory of his tag. Usually I have at least some vague recollection of it!]
Lee: TP called from Honolulu.4.13PTK.avi_002687187_thumb
Amanda: Oh?
Lee: Yeah, suffering from his forced vacation. I told him the review board ruled it justifiable homicide and the DEA wants to take him to lunch or something. You know TP though. If it’s not in the encyclopaedia, he’s not impressed. 4.13PTK.avi_002701568_thumb
[Justifiable homicide. Hmmmm… I think this is one of those ‘don’t think too much just go with it’ moments! Okay. all good. me happy.
By the way, there’s something ironic about seeing Lee and Amanda exit the coat elevator, after TP took out Jordan with a coat!
Jordan was…coated! in Explosives!!!] 4.13PTK.avi_002702369_thumb
(They exit the elevator and head down the corridor together.)
Amanda: Well at least he got what he wanted.
[wow they really brush this off. yep he happily blew someone up but hey he deserved it!]
Lee: yeah.
{Francine appears at one end of the corridor.}
Francine: Amanda! 4.13PTK.avi_002707807_thumb
Almost simultaneously, Billy: (from bullpen door) Scarecrow! 4.13PTK.avi_002708208_thumb
{After a beat of confusion, they split, Amanda towards Francine, Lee towards Billy.}
Francine: How’re you holding up?
Amanda:
(fakes a sigh) Oh, pretty well, all things considered. 4.13PTK.avi_002716216_thumb
Francine: Oh no, what happened?
(Together they head down the corridor and into the bullpen as they converse)
Amanda:
Well not much really. I’m just not sure whether or not I did the right thing…You think I did?
Francine: You broke up with Lee.4.13PTK.avi_002723623_thumb Amanda: It’s for the best.
(They have reached the Bullpen)
Francine: You’re damn right it is…4.13PTK.avi_002729429_thumb (very excited) …Now I want to hear all about it….
[Others may see this differently to me.. probably highly likely! For me?
I can’t say I mind one bit if Amanda lies to Francine about all this.
Francine totally deserves it.]
(Lee exits Billy’s office and watches Francine and Amanda from across he bullpen)4.13PTK.avi_002732632_thumb
…Was it really ugly, did you have like a big shouting match and everything? Did you really give it to him? Really good? 4.13PTK.avi_002733633_thumb
[Francine is lucky she doesn’t get a coat bomb! Justifiable homicide?! I think the argument could be made here…haaaaa] 4.13PTK.avi_002734834_thumb
Amanda: Francine, thank you. I took care of it.
[Go Amanda! I think she’s able to really sell this lie as it’s exactly what Francine wanted to hear.] 4.13PTK.avi_002738238_thumb
Francine:
(beaming) good! 4.13PTK.avi_002739239_thumb
(Francine is basically squeeeeeeing at this break up! Oh boy..
[Does Francine think she has saved Amanda a whole lot of heartbreak?!]
{She turns and leaves. Amanda sighs,
4.13PTK.avi_002742042_thumb
then turns to see Lee smiling at her.}4.13PTK.avi_002743843_thumb [Lee you just broke up with her you are not supposed to smile at her like that!]
4.13PTK.avi_002745645_thumb
He gives her a big wink. Okay! Here’s a gif of this one!!!wink3GIF_thumb[1]
[Another wink?! How many winks does this episode have? three I think? Anyone? where are they? Molly, did you say there are four? Do tell!!!!
This must be a record!!!!] 4.13PTK.avi_002746646_thumb
{Amanda looks disapproving}
4.13PTK.avi_002747247_thumb
[yeah come on Lee she just lied to Francine and said you had broken up, you can’t be winking at her across the bullpen like that!!! That’s how you got into this position in the first place! She is soooo going to tickle you once you two are alone and not able to be interrupted!!!!! Get him Amanda!!!!! ]
4.13PTK.avi_002748248_thumb
{Lee keeps grinning, unrepentant.}
(The episode ends here!)

Was there a scene in the script where Lee and Amanda talk about Amanda telling Francine they broke up?

Winks…so many winks… I think it makes sense why I had forgotten this tag now. I was just too swoony over Lee’s wink to remember it! It was all too much!!

Do you guys think Francine wants Lee? I’m thinking she doesn’t, and wanted him to experience some scorched earth of his own! But.. I also think that just because she didn’t want him, doesn’t mean she is okay with Amanda getting him! I see Francine as a big jumble of lots of competing thoughts and emotions – so much cognitive dissonance going on she doesn’t really know what to do with it at this point, and finding out about Lee and Amanda seemed to send her into a spin! lol!! I look forward to continuing to walk through future episodes and seeing what happens with Francine! [Dont tell me!! I look forward to exploring it with you eventuallySmile ]

Any thoughts you’d like to share? Can’t wait to hear from you!!! Wonderful to walk with you all!!!!

Next episode? Rumors of My Death – we’ll be starting the walk through this episode the first weekend in June!!

6/7 Season Four: Episode Thirteen- Promises to Keep-Scarecrow & Mrs King

Moving on and we see Lee, Amanda and a team – presumably hanging out at Goss farm with their big guns and binoculars!4.13PTK.avi_001995562
They start to wonder what’s going on.. and a limo arrives carrying a gloating Dr Smyth.
Who explains everything is following his plan…4.13PTK.avi_002048815
Smyth: … I knew you’d find Aquinas, Scarecrow, so I had you followed. Keeping up with him after that was like playing pin the tail on the donkey…without the blindfold. 4.13PTK.avi_002055221
Dr Smyth explains that TP is on his way to the real meeting, and lied to Lee and Amanda to get them out of the way.
Lee and Amanda discuss privately what could be going on here..
Amanda: Remember TP called and said he had a good deed to do?
Lee: Yeah…’Now it’s up to me and good deeds’. 4.13PTK.avi_002075241
Amanda: And he gave me a copy of ‘Everyman’? There’s a character in it called Good Deeds and he’s the only one that would go to meet Death. 4.13PTK.avi_002084851
Lee: Oh man. Now I see why TP’s goodbye was so final. He’s going to kill Jordan — and he expects to die doing it. 4.13PTK.avi_002097664
[Oh noooo TP! But at the same time… Lee looks so good here!!!]

We cut to TP in another limo, with a very sour looking Peralta.
TP is looking very nervous. He notes they are taking an extra long time avoiding being followed, and they are not sticking to TP’s timetable. 4.13PTK.avi_002117283
Peralta snaps back: Let me worry about what Jordan likes, Percy. I know him a lot better than you do.
[Boy, Peralta wears his heart on his sleeve doesn’t he! lol.]

Back at Goss farm, Lee and Amanda try to appeal to Dr Smyth to help TP stay safe. 4.13PTK.avi_002141908
For once I’m going to skip the dialogue for Dr Smyth – I’ll just say I loved this comment from Lee in this scene to Dr Smyth: Would you spare us the verbal fruit salad, for once, huh?
[If anyone ever wants a copy of the full transcript and it’s not up on www.smk-land.com – email me and I can email it to you.]4.13PTK.avi_002161761
Lee is getting increasingly angry with Dr Smyth, and they are taken off the case. 4.13PTK.avi_002165765
[Where’s Billy and Francine?! And.. where’s that gyrocopter?!]
Dr Smyth has Lee and Amanda led away by the troops. Confusing for these troops.. one minute Lee is leading the operation, the next they are leading Lee away! Hmm i guess Dr Smyth could have brought some along too]

Dr Smyth heads off in his limo. Next thing we see a yellow truck towing a gyrocopter. 4.13PTK.avi_002202969
[oh rofl. Let me guess at the ready for Lee to make his getaway?!
Inside, we find one of the troops is trying to give Amanda some helpful advice… lol.] 4.13PTK.avi_002205372
Commando: You want my advice, write him up. [Him being Dr Smyth] He’d love a little visit from the labor relations board at that frou-frou club of his…4.13PTK.avi_002215382
…I mean, taking a top agent and his partner out of the field like this…it’s bull! Don’t you think so, Marty?
4.13PTK.avi_002222989
(We see Lee wink at Amanda, and lol Amanda notices. )4.13PTK.avi_002224457
[ rofl at Amanda’s reaction! it’s pretty clear something’s up… but the soldier doesn’t seem to notice. Oh goody. Seems Lee and Amanda happened to be taken away by a total dingbat. What luck!]

Lee starts coughing.
Amanda: are you alright?
{Lee coughs more and drops to his knees on the truck floor}
Amanda: Oh my gosh, you gotta stop this thing… lie him out flat right here.
Commando:
what’s the matter? 4.13PTK.avi_002235669
(Choosing his moment, Lee acts! There’s a struggle.. Amanda attacks the driver with his hat. rofl. There’s gas..tear gas I guess.. lots of grunting and fake scenery in the background.. and then Lee takes control of the truck.)
[The most interesting thing about this scene is that shockingly poor/unrealistic and hilarious screen that is supposed to convince us this truck is driving along a country road! whahaahahaa!!!]

Back to Peralta’s limo speeding along a dirt road, above them, a USAF plane is tracking them. [rofl at the stock footage used here!]
4.13PTK.avi_002284117
Male voice over radio: Eagle Two to comms center van, we have a positive coordinate lock on the white rabbit.
[White rabbit??!!!! Alice in Wonderland??? and.. hey the Matrix totally stole this from SMK!haaaa]
{We continue to hear the male voice delivering information over a speaker and cut to a comms room in the agency.}
(We see Francine enter, and make up a lame excuse that she’s looking for her hearing in this corner lol. 4.13PTK.avi_002304938
She wanders around a bit.. opens a file, has a look.. and a security guard arrives and glares at her carrying a big gun so she leaves.)

{Lee and Amanda sitting in the front seat of the van. We hear Francine over the radio.}
Francine: You were right. The Comms centre on alpha prime alert, but I did get a look at the Operations log. There’s only one priority watch in the DC area and it’s in Loudon County.

(Lee and Amanda can figure out the location based on this.. They’re meeting at
-drum roll- Thatcher’s farm!!!! They discuss together how to approach this based on where all the players are on the board..4.13PTK.avi_002340573
They figure they should arrive just before Dr Smyth and his TAC team, and this yellow truck could be used via remote as a diversion.
[after all nothing grabs your attention like a bright yellow truck right?!]
Lee: … we’ve got a gyrocopter on the trailer. If we’re going to that party, we’re going to drop in unexpected. 4.13PTK.avi_002358191
[Let’s crash this party!]
(LOL at Amanda’s parting words to the soldiers as they drive off leaving them tied to a tree. So Amanda!!)4.13PTK.avi_002364197
Amanda: We’re really sorry about this…we’ll try to send somebody.

On to Thatcher’s farm!
Peralta’s limo arrives, what initially appears to be a farmer approaches the field on a tractor.
TP remarks: Well, I stand corrected, Raymond. I presumed Mr. Jordan’s plane would be here on the ground waiting for us. 4.13PTK.avi_002384617_thumb_thumb
Peralta:
Like you presumed just because he asked for a runway, Jordan would be flying?
The farmer on the tractor is.. Jordan! the evil baddie genius!!!! He’s soooooo sooooo cunning! 4.13PTK.avi_002391024_thumb_thumb
[Now.. has Jordan had time to get this evil tractor fully loaded with a weapons arsenal? Because I think that would be hilarious!]

Foster’s limo arrives too – [oh hey, wasn’t this actor in Utopia Now? Noooo I’m not gonna check. you guys tell me if I’m wrong please!] 4.13PTK.avi_002412245_thumb_thumb
They all stand out in the field as Jordan’s security frisks everyone.
[we get a look inside TP’s coat] 4.13PTK.avi_002433066_thumb_thumb
{Jordan’s walkie talkie beeps.}
Jordan: (into radio) Yes?
Voice over radio: Agency TAC teams are converging on your position. ETA six minutes.4.13PTK.avi_002430263_thumb_thumb
Jordan: As I expected, thank, which gives us only two minutes before we disperse.
{As TP is being patted down, he stares at Jordan. 4.13PTK.avi_002440273_thumb_thumb
The screen dissolves into the flashback of his wife and son’s deaths (I can only assume his son died)4.13PTK.avi_002444678_thumb_thumb and Jordan’s face behind the trigger. 4.13PTK.avi_002443877_thumb_thumb
It dissolves back to the present, TP still staring at Jordan. The guard finds a set of keys in TP’s pocket and after checking them, hands them back to him.}

Jordan tells TP to wait in the car, while Peralta and Foster meet with him. TP tries to get closer but Jordan isn’t interested in viewing his statistics. And lol – stay in the car?! Will TP listen? What is the big yellow van gonna do?!
Stay tuned!! Can’t wait to hear from you all!!
