|I'm a sucker for
"Mr. and Mrs. Steele" episodes, and this is definately one of those. This
episode just plain makes me feel good and gives me a lot of smiles and
warm feelings. Some of the highlights:
-Remington getting his 'detective
terms' mixed up (skip trace)
-Remington's reaction to the way
Windsor is flirting with him as the sit on the Agency couch in his office
as they discuss the case.
-Remington's fallen expression and
Laura's surprised one when Windsor informs them that *Laura* will be the
focus of the investigation.
-the night time ride in the Rabbit
where R and L teasingly discuss jealousy and end up sharing a smile over
it. There was never a question of either of them actually feeling threatened
- just a recognition that those feelings of jealousy still occasionally
-the sweet and respectful way R talks
with the forgetful singer friend. (In L's defense, even though she didn't
have any patience with the older lady here, she usually was also respectful
of the elderly.)
-Laura and Remington watching themselves
on Spotlight news when the body was discovered and their resulting "argument".
It just shows they can disagree and even have a 'fight' without either
of them feeling like it threatens their personal relationship. I just love
the way she flounces out of his apt. in a huff and he just more or less
takes it in stride.
-their visit to the elderly detective
who has the fireplace going at full force. Love the way he puts R down
when R asks for a glass of ice tea. Also, I love the way Laura comments
to R "that could be you in a few years", thus indicating (to me, at least)
that she's already anticipating growing old with him.
-the confrontation discussion in
R's office where R confronts L with the results of his own impressive research.
I don't think him asking if L wanted to call Windsor was out of character
and L certainly didn't take offense at it. Also, doesn't Remington look
wonderful in this scene?!
-the scene in the elevator where
Windsor sticks the microphone in L's face and L's tells her off. I love
the way R stays in the background in this scene...he lets Laura handle
-Remington chasing the bad guy in
the dark in the Auburn and complaining about its "lousy turn radius".
-the wonderfully romantic late night
walk by the lake where R and L discuss how well he knows her and how much
it scares her. That is such a visually sensual scene - I love the way she
looks in that white coat in the moonlight with the moon reflecting on the
water. I've always imagined they spent the night at one of Billie's cabins.
