Happens during "Signed, Steeled, & Delivered", ep 1x04
Laura looked over at Steele. They were on their way to confront the CIA - of all things! He was so worked up back at that gas station. He still was. He was driving very aggressively, gripping the wheel so hard, his knuckles had turned white. This man was truly a mystery. She had not known him long, but this was something she had not expected. This wildly protective streak, over a perfect stranger.
What was it? He was proud of his role in the Agency – she understood that. Steele was, generally, a good person at heart. She believed that, too. Laura was skilled at reading people. But this outrage that someone would try to kill the mousy little analyst in the backseat, this certainly took her by surprise.
Had someone looked up to him like this once and he let them down? Laura knew nothing about his past. Was there a little brother or sister that he had failed to protect? Someone he should have watched out for, but didn’t? That was the only explanation she could come up with right now. What would the CIA say? He had never worked for them – surely that would come out. Maybe his utter lack of documentable history would help in this instance.
When this was all over, she had to ask him – had to know. What brought this out in him? Simon? The case in general? Or some helpless, frightened soul looking up to him with hero worship so clearly shining in their eyes….
I will soon be changing jobs again.... As of march 18, I will be the new assistant manager at a local corporate owned video game shop! Had a phone interview at 3, received the phone call with the good news at 6:30! The beloved and happy husband took me out to dinner to celebrate. No more working at a plant, getting up at 4 or 5 am. The plant job is not hard, but 12 hours moving parts makes your hands hurt a LOT.
I am very glad something good happened today. Nine years ago I lost one of my favorite cats to an unexpected hemorrhage in her lung. Had I been able to take her to my vet, she possibly could have been saved. In memory of her, I planted four lily bulbs in the front yard early this afternoon.
Also, for those of you planning to go and see Die Hard 5, beware. The camera shaking is constant throughout the entire film. Not quite Cloverfield, but it still made me seasick as all hell. Not a single steady cam shot in the whole thing as far as I can tell....
The last two days have been kind of rough. PMS + unemployment = crazy and cranky me. :( I've been making my husband unhappy. However - I received a phone call today and I get to go pee in a cup tomorrow and then I have orientation on Friday! I have a job at a local plant. I have no idea of any more details, but as my unemployment award was all of 125 a week (!) I am very grateful to be earning some money - I hope. :D
On a different note, it is freezing cold here, when two days ago it was 70! Stupid weather.
I saw it tonight. And it was GOOD. Like, crying at the end good. I believe I was in tears at the end of ID4, Gladiator (who wasn't), Star Trek, and now DKRises. It ties things up in a very satisfactory way. I need to find a fellow comics nerd and brainstorm about the various plot threads and where they came from.
Anne Hathaway is FANTASTIC as Selina. Everything I could ask for. Go see it!
The first thing I heard this morning was the news about Aurora, CO on NPR. Very sad. The only reason I was not at our local midnight showing is because I had to work today. As scary as it is, the killing of a single human being, I can almost understand. People get angry and they lose control. Sad, but true. However, I have no idea what throws a switch and makes someone decide to go shoot up a movie theater. Killing random strangers makes no sense at all.
Is it just me or has there been a VAST upswing in the amount of spammy comments?
