Episode #48- Blue Blooded Steele
Xenos1981 (Sep 21 2007)
|Yay!!! Blue Blooded
Steele!!! I LOVE this episode!!! They actually make it to the bed!!! But,
as always, no "cigar". But it got my hopes up again for a little romance
between the two. Post away, ladies...
Mamma Mia!!! Pierce Brosnan...Proof
that God loves us and wants us to be happy!

|One of my favorite
Season Three episodes as we see the return of Daniel Chalmers and Myrtle
Groggins. So much to love here with even a roll in the bed kissing scene
for Xenos. Always love the interaction between Efrem and Pierce and this
episode is no exception. One of my favorite little moments between them
occurs after the chandelier has fallen and they have all gathered in Remington’s
bedroom and Daniel makes a comment like “you should be safe here tonight”
and says it very cavalierly. Pierce’s/Remington’s reaction to that statement
is just classic (check it out). And the scene between Laura and Daniel
when they are sparring over custody of Harry/Remington is wonderfully played
by the father daughter duo. And I laugh every time Bunny enters the drawing
room with an eye to redecorating it like Sherwood Forest. The roll in the
bed scene is also very well choreographed and well executed by the actors.
Love how Remington thinks he is finally going to get lucky and begins to
remove his watch in preparation for the big event. The lasting impression
this episode leaves with me is that everyone had a lot of fun filming it.

|I'm biased. I
love this episode. It has lots of comedy, Daniel, and a nice dose of romance
make for a great mix. Seems like this episode should be post-thaw.
- I love the "Daniel & Harry"
scenes. PB and EZ work so well together, they're just a joy to watch. If
one didn't know better, they'd think Harry learned his use of eyebrow raises
- Mr. Steele walking on his knees
as he drags Daniel to the bedroom to hide. LOL
- Nice job by PB, portraying the
near-to-tears Mr. Steele
- Nice comic bit by SZ, jumping
when Mr. Steele shouts that no, she shouldn't join him in going to London.
- Reminders of air travel in days
gone by: non-passengers going to the gate, cigarette smoking on board,
peanuts, Pan Am, transferable airline tickets
- Mr. Steele trying to explain to
the cousins that he's not "the" Reggie Whitewood
- Mr. Steele shining his shoes on
the back of his pants legs as he prepares to meet Penhaligon
- Myrtle Groggins. Bwahahahahaha!
SZ looks like she's having a ball.
- Mildred tucking the napkin into
- The Daniel & Laura scene.
Always good to see those two work together. I love how confident she is
of Mr. Steele's loyalty. And I love Daniel's suggestion that they team
- Mr. Steele using Pookie's arm
to wave goodnight to Angus & Archie
- Love our our pair preparing to
face the unknown: Laura grabs the candlestick & Mr. Steele gets his
- The sweet scene on the bed. Love
how hopeful he looks, even after they sit back up - and the expression
on his face when she tells him they have a safe to crack - so crestfallen.
Love the bit with the watch.
- Mr. Steele is quite adamant about
not joining Daniel. Until the 12M pounds figure is mentioned. Even then,
he only considers it momentarily.
- Love how Daniel knows Harry well
enough to realize he wouldn't leave Laura and invites him to bring her
- Laura's genuine concern for Mr.
Steele when she hears how ill Daniel is.
- Laura seems a lot more possessive
of Mr. Steele vs. the last time we saw Daniel. I think the fact that Mr.
Steele would go to London to work with Daniel scares her just a little.
- When Laura tells Mr. Steele why
Daniel thinks he's still hanging around Laura, it's good to see his reaction.
It confirms he's committed to her (despite enjoying Gwen's attention just
a bit tooooo much) for herself.
R: And by the way, the name's Steele,
D: Of course, Harry, whatever you
R: You're being excruciatingly understanding
L: I know.
L: His days with you are over, Chalmers.
He's with me now.
A: (holding the broken chandelier
cable) I trust you won't be needing this any more, your grace?
R: Not tonight, Armstrong.
Hair & Clothing
- Nice suit with the blue shirt Mr.
Steele wears to London
- Like the color, but I'm not crazy
about the style of Laura's champagne-colored dress. But her hair looks
- Love Mr. Steele's long leather
- I like Laura's suit with the red
blouse and she looks great in the hat, of course
- Mr. Steele's bow tie is too big,
esp. when compared to Daniel's, Angus' and Archie's
- Mildred's tiara! LOL
- Both R & L look great in the
Goofs, Headscratchers & Misc
- Just where was the shooter who
hit the bottle of champagne? The only buildings we see outside Mr. Steele's
window are much too far away. And, of course, in real life there's a golf
course across the street from Mr. Steele's apartment building.
- David Byrd (Penhaligon) played
Giovanni in Steele Among The Living
- Didn't the cousins and Nanny wonder
where Myrtle's accent went?
- Irene Tedrow (Nanny Perkins) was
in the same episode of "Centennial" as Stephanie
- In the script, Laura's alias is

|Boy I sure wish
I could post more to the SOTW thread!! But I just couldn't resist on this
one. I really liked "Blue Blooded Steele."
Going from memory (cause of course
my S3 is being lent out), the scenes that really popped out in this episode
for me were:
the scene when we get to see LH and
MK take on different characters. They played those very very well. I was
really laughing and by the time MK comes in as LH's mother...Well, she
just nailed it and that just did me in!!
The other scene that I recall that
made a big impression on me was the scene with SZ and her father when they
are both competing, lets say, for RS. It was great!! There were some very
good points made in that conversation...Daniel mentions to LH something
like...go with us and he points out that she has it in her cause she made
RS all up! (That was paraphrased of course, but you all get the idea.)
It was great!! I think LH avoids or changes the subject..doesn't she...cute!!
Of course the romance is always a
plus and needless to say that's already been mentioned so nicely. Of course,
Xenos hasn't posted yet, so who knows!! :)

|I really enjoyed
this episode, so much in fact I watched it twice. It had a lot going on,
advancing the characters' storyline, and the plot was not only funny, but
also a fair mystery.
MMM Steele shaving.... lovely. Does
he have the hottest tap in all of LA? and no XXXenos that's not code for
something else. Although It does sound a bit naughty!!
I like that Steele's tread on the
straight and narrow is given a slight jostle by the 12 million pounds that
Daniel dangles so enticingly in front of him.
RS: "....Sitting duck."
Oh those two play so very well together!
LH:"He was like a father to you,
wasn't he?" Were they already planning Daniel's S.5 revelation?
I liked the airport scene also. Their
goodbye revealed so much. His guilt, all be it short lived, for lying to
her again a mere month after the south of France debacle. Laura's concern
for Remington possibly losing someone close to him, right up until they
separate at security. Then realizing he's played her again!
Laura's coach seat from hell! I think
I fly that same airline everytime I travel!!! And doesn't the guy who's
hitting on her look similiar to the neighbor Steve from "Married with Children"?
Maybe they're brothers or something. And the other guy looks similiar to
the murdering sleep clinic insomniac?
Poor Laura, sleeping on the hard,
plastic chair row in customs... My back aches watching it.
Despite Steele's occasional wordiness
for a humorous laugh, the dialogue in the show has always appealed to me.
R:"It does strain incredulity, Laura"
L:"Spare me the oblique explanation,
The argument, in front of Daniel,
pushing Laura to become very understanding regarding Cannes in a very visible
manner. But I love her unabashed glee in continuing to use him as very
visible bait for the murderer as revenge for it. The introduction of Myrtle
Groggins as a poke right back at Laura. Iloved the mother daughter bit
with Mildred. The paste tiara and large cotume jewelry, the obnoxiously
funny accents and off putting dialogue, distract the suspects nicely.
Bunny!!!! I can't believe someone
hasn't latched on to that for a screen name yet!
Loved the revolving door of suspects
routine in Steele's bedroom. The attempt with Gwen to make Laura jealous
hinted at payback for Laura rolling around the bed with the South African
playboy on the yacht.
The scene with Laura and Daniel staking
there claims so directly, while Steele's not around, is great! You can
tell Efrem is really enjoying the heck out of this role.
Finally 32 minutes into the show
we have the first dead body, although I think Pookie had it coming! But
then the whacking factor picks up and Archie and Angus fall in short order.
And Archie is definately the love child of 'Addams Family' Lurch and 'Mr.
Bean', don't you think? He's just... just so icky!
The scene at the chipper where R
throws the fake documents in, reminds me of "The Quiet Man" where John
Wayne tosses the dowery into the boiler.
Hey, when Efrem picks up the gun
and says "Relax" is that from one of his tv character from past? Always
seemed like it was to me, but I couldn't begin to know from where....
Well that about it covers it.
picac (Sep 23 2007)
|You can tell this
is still during the Cannes agreement. They don't behave at the start as
if they're in a romantic relationship. She takes care of him as a friend
but she doesn't see him off at the airport or in his apartment as a boyfriend.
There isn't that kind of physical intimacy. Hugs but no kisses except a
good bye one on the cheek. The later rolling around on the bed must be
one of those slips Mr. Steele references when they break the thaw.
Mr. Steele's tux is only surpassed
by Mr. Steele wet in a robe - especially one open at the chest that keeps
swinging open at the legs. Mmmmmm. Mr. Steele shaving -- lovely. And proof
that he has to shave again at night because his stubble grows in so fast.
If EZ Jr. was once 6 feet (as listed
on the IMDB) he's significantly shrunk by the time of RS. Pierce is about
4 inches taller. Daniel is a blast of a character -- cheerfully and almost
completely amoral and so delightful because and not in spite of it. He
works beautifully with Pierce and of course Steph.
"Who's Daniel?" Wow Laura, way to
remember the important people in Steele's life. :D Though she is very sympathetic
and comforting when she finds out he's ill.
Steele lies to her, but my stance
is so what? (Yes I know I'm terribly partial) He's not planning on doing
anything illegal, just the opposite. It has nothing to do with his professional
life as Steele and Laura has no hold on his personal life. She made the
rules. Now of course she doesn't trust him not to do something illegal
so she dogs his steps. If he'd told her the truth she'd have probably dogged
him anyway. For this mistrust she deserves to suffer in the coach trip
- get another bag of peanuts - from hell. I love the juxtaposition between
their flights -- and oh to fly for once like Mr. Steele and Daniel.
This episode was filmed in L.A. unlike
the other European episodes that year but they're on some beautiful grounds.
The walk after Laura finds him is quite amusing physically. Steele is walking
smoothly in long strides while Laura's legs and arms need to churn after
him to keep pace (it shows how often he's shortened his strides to walk
along with her before) as Daniel brings up, almost nonchalantly, the rear.
Mr. Steel makes note of his "occasional
side strips". When did he have these and why didn’t we get to see them?
Sure there was Cannes but she was with him so does that even count?
Laura being conciliatory is obviously
more for Chalmers benefit than anything she really believes. Which is evident
when her plan is to use Steele as bait.
Laura and Daniel fighting over who
Steele "belongs" to while highly entertaining (as always between Laura
and Daniel) is rather disturbing. He's a man not a puppy or a piano. Neither
have a claim to him in that manner though both seem to think the other
thinks he "owes" them and they own him. The man does have free will. At
least Daniel acknowledges he's a one of a kind unique artist.
Then both having the nerve to risk
his life (and he'd be dead a couple of times over if it wasn't for dumb
luck) for their own ends; Daniel's for the money and Laura to catch the
killer and punish Steele for having the nerve to lead his own life without
her permission (if he died would she then feel better? Rather doubtful.
That's some serious game playing). If I was Steele I'd take the $12m pounds
and the gorgeous elegant Gwen and ditch them both. :p
I do love love love Daniel calling
Laura on being a conwoman. A direct and palpable hit that Laura tries to
brush off and ignore the absolute truth of.
Steele's look when Mildred comes
in -- he leans over and just stares in disbelief -- priceless!
Pookie and Pussycakes! LOL!!! Then
the way he nuzzles Pookie when Nanny shows up with it and then uses the
arm to wave goodbye.
If Mr. Steele was trying to make
Laura jealous he was doing a far more realistic and believable job of true
lust and enjoyment with Gwen than Laura did with Freddy. There's nothing
very comical about his interest, while with Freddy there might as well
have been cartoon music playing in the background. Then again the other
party in this instance is far more believably an object of lust and interest.
Too bad for him he didn't get to roll around with Gwen -- if he really
wanted Laura seriously jealous he should have pretended not to see Laura's
hand rolling. ;-) But then he does get a nice view of her in the tub --
so funny that he covers Laura's eyes and not his own. LOL
As lovely as the kiss, roll over
and watch removal is does Mr. Steele really think of all times that this
would be the time? The time he leaves town after a lie, he avidly flirts
with another woman, and she thinks he's trying to leave her for 12m pounds?
Then again all those things might explain why Laura seems amenable- to
a point (always that point) - even though they're in the thaw. She's actually
afraid he might leave. She fears what Daniel thinks is true that he's staying
around just until he gets her bed and maybe worries with that off the table
after Cannes there's nothing holding him to her anymore. She has to know
that's not true by the complete confusion in his face when she brings it
up. And if she ever needed proof that he wasn't sticking around for a quick
con or a roll in the hay I think turning down about $25m (again -- he did
it in Steele Away with Me) would be enough. Being Mr. Steele hardly
pays as well and no one turns down that kind of money for another notch
on the bedpost.
Where oh where did Mildred and Laura
get all these tacky clothes? At the airport customs shop? Mildred's tiara,
headband and honking huge necklace -- too funny.
Laura's hair as Bunny -- her nickname
should have been Poodle. Yikes! The shoulder padded white dress and the
rope around her waist - it looks like she's wearing a curtain. Also who's
idea was it that shoulder pads were a great thing. It can't all have been
Joan Collins' fault. They mar her beige outfit in the opening scene which
would be very nice and flattering if not for the obtrusive shoulder pads.
I like Laura's red blouse and the vest with skirt-- especially the vest.
That's about it from this episode.
Gwen's clothes are lovely - soft,
elegant, subdued, elegant but not flashy. Her black and silver dress is
gorgeous -- but then with that face and her hair swept back it would be
hard not to look lovely. Beautiful simple black dress as well and her make
up and hair is never overdone (it would be gilding the lily). And now that's
a nightgown - Laura should take note. ;-)
Steele's long leather coat - nice
- I guess he didn't have the opportunity to wear it in L.A. As usual he
has magnificent suits, especially the gray three piece that's very fitting
for England. The tux is lovely and once again it proves that the tux with
tie undone is infinitely sexier on Pierce than it done up. Oh and the robe,
I mentioned it but it needs to be mentioned again. Mmmmm.
Daniel also has some very nice suits,
particularly the black one when he enters Steele's apartment.

Hey, when Efrem
picks up the gun and says "Relax" is that from one of his tv character
from past? Always seemed like it was to me, but I couldn't begin to know
I've wondered this myself. I've not
seen Efrem on either of his TV series but the phrasing and the manner in
which that line was delivered seemed out of character for Daniel, making
me think it was tribute of sorts to another character.
edr1109 (Sep 24 2007)
|This is a great
episode for a lot of reasons-- each character has some great lines, there
is romance and Daniel is in it. It also foreshadows the final episodes
of the series with Laura’s comment that Daniel is like a father to Remington
and Remington inheriting an estate. I didn’t pick up on this when I originally
watched the episodes 20 years ago.
LH and RS are consistent with their
game playing but it’s done in an entertaining way and seems less a sign
that their relationship has some serious issues. Steele deceives her again
and she is reactive, but a little less judgmental than usual. Maybe she
has given some thought to Steele’s criticism of her in Cannes? I’m sure
competing with Daniel plays a big part in her toned-down reaction but it
isn't the only reason.
I don’t subscribe to the notion that
Steele should get a free pass when he cons and deceives though. Laura’s
behavior should not be held up to higher degree of scrutiny just because
she is quirky and seems crazy for not having sex with him. No one denies
that she has issues but if she was that terrible, why would we all be enjoying
this show 20 years later?
A couple of head scratchers, etc:
How come these very perceptive detectives
don’t notice the ridiculously obvious eyes watching them from the paintings?
The eyes were a cute touch but come on!
Laura’s hair when she is Bunny is
some of the worst hair I’ve seen on her in the series. What made Mildred
think to grab a curling iron for Laura as she dashed to the airport with
Laura’s passport? Or if Mildred didn’t, did they sell curling irons in
Heathrow Airport in 1985?
Also IMHO Steele's royal blue and
red robe is a rare fashion mis-step for him. Was that an homage to Rocky
(Sylvester Stallone, Talia Shire, United Artists 1976)? I like the burgundy
one he wears so much better.
Xenos1981 (Sep 25 2007)
|I know it’s late,
but I want to throw in my two cents worth about this AWESOME episode! One
of the best from Season Three. One of the best of the whole series, actually.
I truly love this one from start to finish. Here’s why…
First, I have to say how freakin’
awesome Efrem is as Daniel. Such a joy it is whenever he’s guesting on
RS. And the chemistry between him and Stephanie is every bit as wonderful
as it is between him and Pierce. I don’t know what it is about the Zimbalists
that spark so well with Pierce, but whatever it is, it’s phenomenal! Lightening
in a bottle, baby! The sparring between Laura and Daniel over Remington
is priceless…As is the easy, father-son relationship Daniel and Remington
OK…Now I’ll start at the beginning.
OMG! Mr. Steele in a silk bathrobe opened way down revealing his beautiful
chest and stomach…Ooo, la la!!! I never realized just how erotic shaving
could be! My heart skipped a few beats there. Mmmmmmm. And when he was
chasing Laura into his bedroom?! Did you notice how he had to hold his
robe shut?!?! Wish he hadn’t!!! Grrrrrrrrr!
But getting past Mr. Steele in a
silk robe (which is very hard for me, you know)…I LOVED the set-up. Daniel
coming back to drag Harry back into an old scheme they concocted years
ago before he became Remington Steele. Nice. Even nicer, Harry being tempted
but realizing that his life is really with Laura now…Even after that blasted
Cannes agreement. (It’s love, I tell you…LOVE! *sigh*) Loved the physical
comedy when Remington – still on his knees – ushers Daniel into the bedroom.
Stephanie was right…Pierce is WONDERFUL at physical comedy. (He does the
same thing in Diced Steele. So, so good!) I think the “Daniel? Who’s Daniel?”
line is so funny. Seriously, I think it was written as an inside joke as
if to say, “Efrem? My dad? Who’s that?” rather than a plot point. I mean,
seriously…Would Laura really forget who Daniel was? Especially after he
wooed her mother? Nah. Highly unlikely…Especially for a woman who makes
her living paying attention to details. And such a funny scene, too, with
Daniel in the closet as a “crying” Remington tries to steer Laura away
from finding him there. I laugh out loud every time I see that scene.
I must add that the XenosHubby really
liked Laura’s beige dress. He commented on it TWICE!!! It was rather lovely…And
I’m usually not a fan of beige. But Steph looked great in it. (See…Watching
RS is a win/win situation, ladies! Heh-heh-heh!)
OK…The airplane scene? Hee-heeeeeee!!!
Poor Laura!!! “You gonna eat your peanuts?” And that geeky Romeo! *shudder*
ONE DOLLAR AND FIFTY CENTS FOR A GLASS OF WINE?!?! (Auburn…Let’s take a
plane trip on that airline…Anywhere, I don’t care!!! We’d be drunk by the
time we hit altitude!!!) And all the while Remington and Daniel are lounging
comfortably in first class! Again…Poor Laura!!!
And, oh my gosh, the cousins!!! Were
they great or what?!?! The gorgeous Gwen and unattractive Angus and Archie
(who looked like they got hit with the ugly stick). So, so great!!! My
heart went out to Gwen, though…How would you like to find out that Reggie
Whitewood, that gorgeous specimen of a man, was your cousin?!?! (Yes, yes…I
know…They weren’t really cousins. I’m just kidding. But it really must
suck to be a woman and related to Pierce – other than Keely, of course.)
Notice how it didn’t stop her though.
I just have to comment here that
it’s funny that the two people who love Remington the most (other than
me, of course) are so willing to put his hide on the line. (I’d NEVER do
that…I have much better plans for his hide! Heh-heh-heh!)
Then comes one of my favorite non-romantic
moments of all time…Laura’s entrance as Reggie’s fiancée. ROTFLMAO!!!
Stephanie should have gotten an Emmy for that scene alone! Everything was
perfect – her hideous hair, the accent, smacking her gum!!! Hee-heeeeeeee!!!
Steph looked like she was having a ball playing “Bunny”. BUNNY!!! Good
Lord!!! And when Remington says, “You're supposed to call me ‘Your Grace',
take three steps back, and curtsey" I just about wet my pants. And Doris
was a hoot as Myrtle’s mother. “Duke schmuke!” I can’t say enough about
Nanny Perkins questioning Reggie
about his childhood…The expression on Remington’s face as he tries to punt
– “…And bake a little red hen.” – Geezo peezo! Funny stuff! “Oh, Reggie!”
Could her voice get any lower?!?! So freakin’ great!!!
The “Psst! We need to talk” scene
between Laura and Daniel is GREAT!!! Efrem raising his eyebrow as if to
say, “Oh, this is gonna be fun” before he and Laura battle it out for Remington
is just a great moment. Defines his character so well. You can see from
whom Remington learned all his panache and elegance. Always a joy to watch
father and daughter bicker on screen.
And then the first bedroom scene…The
entrance of Nanny with Pookie (“Lucky bear, that one.”), Archie with a
port, Angus with a shot of malt and Gwen with a cookie and milk. I just
wish Remington hadn’t been so quick to try to get Gwen into bed. Rather
wished he would’ve done it more to make Laura jealous…And I wish Laura
would’ve been more upset, realized just what a wonderful man she was missing
out on and made mad, passionate love to him all night long!!! But, alas,
my hopes were dashed.
The second bedroom scene was more
to my liking! They actually made it onto a bed!!! Woo-Hoo!!! So smooth
Mr. Steele is as he pulls Laura back into the room and maneuvers her onto
the bed to “thank her”. OMG, OMG, OMG, OMG, O…M…G!!! If I were Laura, I
would’ve let him thank me all night long!!! The whole conversation was
great from beginning to end…Well written and performed to perfection by
Pierce and Stephanie. LOVED that Mr. Steele took off his watch. So silly
and yet so great!!! And the look on Remington’s face and his body language
is PRICELESS!!! Like he was trying to retract his periscope. (That shouldn’t
happen to someone so good looking and so wonderful!!!) Poor Mr. Steele!!!
And an added “OMG” here just for good measure.
OK…This is getting long. Quickly
now…I love how the mystery unfolds. Love how well Laura and Remington work
together and piece the puzzle together. “The Fuller Brush Man”…Funny! Enjoy
the scene where they try to throw Daniel into the chipper. Love how his
voice changes an octave when he’s scared. LOL! And I especially love the
end scene between Remington and Daniel…And Daniel going away with Gwen.
Everything wrapped up nice and neat (kinda) and Laura and Remington going
home together. As it should be. *sigh*
Thanks for reading!
Mamma Mia!!! Pierce Brosnan…Proof
that God loves us and wants us to be happy!

I don’t subscribe to
the notion that Steele should get a free pass when he cons and deceives
though. Laura’s behavior should not be held up to higher degree of scrutiny
just because she is quirky and seems crazy for not having sex with him.
No one denies that she has issues but if she was that terrible, why would
we all be enjoying this show 20 years later?
Quirky is not a word I'd use. But I
guess one person's quirky is another's highly controlling neurotic. ;-)
And that his nothing to do with her being "that terrible" but just what
I consider an aspect of her personality and because I enjoy and like Steele
as a character more and find him the more reasonable character doesn't
mean I think Laura is terrible, unlikeable or unenjoyable. (as there are
those that prefer Laura as a character to Steele who give her more slack
because of it) In fact many of their disparities are what I think
help to create a lot of the frission between the characters, what keeps
the chemistry alive.
My point here though is that they
are supposedly is a strictly professional working relationship now -- her
choice. It simply isn't any of her business where he goes and why outside
of work. I'd say it was completely wrong of him to deceive her with an
unfounded sob story that played on her feelings if I didn't think that
simply telling her the truth or just saying he needed to leave town for
a few days for personal business would have still got him lectured and
followed. Again he's acting like that errant school boy he complained about
being treated as in Cannes and again she treats him like one by following
him (if she really trusted him she wouldn't follow even when she was he
was with Chalmers -- she'd trust him not to do anything wrong) -- but which
come first the chicken or the egg?
I don't think she initially trusts
him any more than during Cannes and her tones when telling Steele she understood
in front of Chalmers verged on the phony treacly tones she used on the
kids in Blood Is Thicker Than Steele. She's really tamping down
her anger and then lets a bit of it off by suggesting to use Mr. Steele
as bait. Her first reaction to seeing him is a banshee wail and she's still
screeching and doubting until she realizes that Chalmers is soaking it
all in. She's not going to give Chalmers the satisfaction of thinking there's
a rift and maybe she thinks her screeching isn't going to make life in
L.A. with her look more appealing than life on the Riviera with Chalmers
and millions of dollars. This leads into her sparring with Daniel later
over who Mr. Steele belongs with.. She's staking her claim but she's also
afraid it isn't enough. She needn't worry though, Steele seems to like
the ringing in his ears as much as the lilt. ;-)
Oh and there's no seems about it,
She IS crazy for not having sex with him. Stark raving mad in fact. :D
sugarjilly (Sep 26 2007)
Nice post as always Xenos as are
everyone's this week. This is a very popular episode with the IMDber's!!!
I can't remember if Gwen was coming
on to RS because she knew that RS really wasn't the duke and that the whole
family was really playing along with the idea because they wanted the inheritence.
..or were they going to get anything? I can't remember, but that could
be an explaination as to why she didn't think twice about coming on to
RS and them being cousins and all. Just a thought.
Does anyone have any suggestions
picac (Sep 26 2007)
|They could have
been second cousins or even further removed -- then all fair in love and
war. ;) Then again cousin laws vary from country to country (and I think
in the US state to state) - not to mention time. There used to be a time
when marrying one's first cousin was pretty common.
sugarjilly (Sep 26 2007)
on the cousin thing. Thanks for posting picac!
Yes, I do believe that marrying your
first cousin was pretty common at one time. My great uncle married his
first cousin many years ago as it was still legal in the state of PA anyhow.
Xenos1981 (Sep 26 2007)
mean to spark a debate over inbreeding! [[winkgrin]] As I said at SteeleWatchers...I
think she was coming on to him because he was FREAKIN' HOT!!! And seriously...If
you're a woman, it would SUCK to be related to Pierce. (Keely being the
Mamma Mia!!! Pierce Brosnan...Proof
that God loves us and wants us to be happy!
