Thanks for the pics, bcmom, of all the guest stars in 506 "Enemy Of My Enemy".

I know I covered Carmelo a few months ago. How about our old friend, Sugar?

Fiona needs info on Carmelo's heroin shipments, so that Team Westen can steal one. One of Michael's convoluted plans, the kind that client Emily appropriately termed insane (in S4's "Blind Spot") and which Pearce informs Michael she's not crazy about.

Fi finds Sugar in a nightclub, engrossed in conversation with a few lovely women at the bar, and taps him on the shoulder. He puts on a broad smile of greeting: "Fiona!" But he's not truly happy to see her. She also fakes a huge, friendly smile.
Sugar's smile fades as he mutters to her: "Now is not a good time."
Fi doesn't really care: "Oh, now's good."
So Sugar tries again: "Ladies, this is Fiona. She's a very dear friend who would never dream of interrupting this magical time we're all having together."
Fi tries again, too. "Of course not! If you have found some friends that are ok with your medical condition, I wouldn't dream of imposing!"
One of the young women responds exactly as Fi intended: "Medical condition?" While Sugar tries to diffuse Fi's comments with an awkward smile.
Fi: "It's not a big deal, really. There are plenty of ways to manage the symptoms. There's, uh, ointment, gels, cream suppositories..." She's ticking them off on her fingers while Sugar continues to try and smile this away. He offers an uncomfortable laugh.
Sugar tries to keep the girls from believing Fi's story: "She's joking. She actually has a very dark, twisted sense of humor."
But it's too late - Fi's scared them off. One of the young women speaks for them all, not even bothering to make an excuse: "Um, yeah, I think we're actually gonna leave." And they do, while Fi smiles in triumph and Sugar glares at her angrily.
Sugar: "What do you want?"
Fi: "I want to know about Carmelo Dante's heroin shipments."
Sugar: "Why?"
Fi: "Because he's about to lose one."
Sugar: "Forget it. You rob him, he sucks the marrow out of your bones. I like my marrow - inside my bones."
Fi: "Did Carmelo shoot you in the kneecap, or was that Michael Westen?" Sugar's eyes widen. "Because he is the one asking."
Sugar resigns himself to telling what he knows. "Look, everyone in the game knows Carmelo's guys take a rental car to a stash house up in the sticks just for re-up. It's right off of 95 north of Ft. Lauderdale."
Fi: "Ah, see, that wasn't so hard, was it?"
Sugar: "This is some serious death wish material here. You know why it's ok everybody knows about his stash house? 'Cause nobody's stupid enough to hit it," he says pointedly.
Fi, in a singsong voice: "Somebody is!" She turns to leave.

Sugar's just no match for Team Westen - not Michael, not Sam, not Fiona. Which is a good part of his charm, I think.

Happy Guest Star Tuesday!

To go with the above words to the scene between Fiona and Sugar, and to accompany bcmom's great screencaps of the guest stars, here are Fi & Sugar in their little duel of wills.

Sugar is no match for Fiona.

Very nice selection of screencaps, bcmom!

507 "Besieged" - Men On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown
(Just had to say that, after the movie and musical "Women On The Edge Of A Nervous Breakdown". Posted Image)

The first man on the verge is Jacob, who works himself up into quite a tizzy when he learns men are trying to kill him. This, in spite of the fact that he finds out he's marked for death at the same time as he's rescued by Sam and Fi. He's taken to the loft to safely wait until the team can sort things out for him - and for Michael, who needs to learn what he can about Jacob's employer.

The second man on the verge of a nervous breakdown is John, the estranged husband of client Denise. Played by Jay Ferguson.

* * * * *
Sam taps Michael for help with this job in part because he thinks John will respect Michael due to the fact that Michael, like John's recently deceased brother, was a member of the Rangers. Denise tells Michael that John is a good man but has not taken the loss of his brother well at all. He has become unstable, and she now fears for the well-being of their son, Tommy. John has kept Tommy longer than he was supposed to by the terms of their custody agreement.

When Michael and Sam drive to John's house for a chat, they learn he is paranoid, having barred the windows of his home - the only one in the neighborhood to take such security measures. Michael proceeds carefully, knowing that it is difficult to tell others how to care for their families...particularly if you are dealing with an unstable man.

John ends up running away with his son to a fringe militia group he's become influenced by. The leader, Zechariah, gives John a scapegoat for his brother's death (the government who sent him to war) and a focus for his despair and anger about the way his life has fallen apart (the government, who arranged the custody that separates him from his son part time). Zechariah uses paranoia, weapons and keeping cloistered from society as a way to feel powerful. He coaxes those around him to buy into that philosophy, then to put their trust in him - giving power over to him, rather than encouraging them to think for themselves.

Focusing on the climactic scene, when Michael has a last chance to persuade John to change his mind about where to place his faith and what's best for his son.

John: "You again? Just stay back."
Michael: "I'm not here to hurt you, John. I just want to talk. Those bruises are fresh. What happened?"
John: "Nothing. Just stay back."
Michael, putting down his gun. "I am on your side. What happened? He beat you, didn't he?"
John: "He ordered everybody out into the field, and Tommy couldn't breathe, so I wouldn't go. Yeah, he beat me, he broke my leg. Then Tommy got so scared, he passed out. HEY! Stop! I said just stay back!" (Michael has been approaching while John speaks. Now, he stops and puts his hands up non-threateningly.)
Michael: "Look around you, John. This isn't what you signed up for. This isn't right."
John's gun is still pointed at Michael: "But what do you want?"
Michael: "The same thing I wanted when we first met. To keep your son safe. And he's not safe here, John. He's not safe with Zechariah." (He has started to approach again.)
John clings to his choices: "Zechariah promised he'd protect us."
Michael: "Well, he lied to you about that. He's not you, John, he's not your brother. I mean, think about your son."


These words find their mark like an arrow.

John: "I am thinking about him!" His voice and his face are desperate and pained. He's become confused. Michael's words make sense, but it's not easy to let go of the sense of security he'd falsely obtained with Zechariah. But he's wavering. "I'm his father!" he yells, and it's clear he cares for his son in the way he says it, the expression on his face.

Michael accepts John's words and challenges him to do the right thing: "And as his father, you have to make a choice. If you think it's better for Tommy to shoot me, then you need to shoot me. " Stepping closer. "But if you think Tommy is better off leaving this place, then we need to get him out of here right now."

John shakes his head at himself: "So I'm stupid!", tears in his voice. He's a broken man who at last realizes the truth. "I believed in that man."

Michael bends down to John's level as John lowers the gun at last, and bows his head, too.


Michael uncuffs John from Tommy's bedside. "You need to grab your son, and we need to go now."
John: "No."
Michael: "John, what are you talking about, you just said yourself Zechariah's – "
John: "No. Look, I'm done with him, all right? But somebody's gotta stay back and cover your escape."
Michael: "John, listen – "
John: "Don't worry. I'm not going to leave my son fatherless." Struggling to his feet. "I'll get out of here."

Waking Tommy, John tells him to go with Michael and affirms for him: "I just want you to know that everything I do, I do for you." Sounds like a goodbye. He kisses the boy's head and hugs him close, whispering: "I love you,buddy….You just tell your mom that I love her, too. Ok?"


Michael hands John his gun (bigger than the handgun John has) and the twomen nod at each other like soldiers saluting. Michael's escorting Tommy to safety, but John's fate remains unknown. He's willing to give his life for his son, if need be.

So...Is John, the dad who's taken the wrong path, a hero? There's hero music playing as Michael persuades John. I'd thought it was for Michael, but I wonder...could it be for John, too?

I think that John deserves some recognition. He's struggling, he's made some bad choices, and he's been misguided, but he doesn't lose sight of his love for his son. He starts to confuse his own insecurities with his son's needs, but in the end, he realizes that. When he does, he immediately re-orients himself to put his son first.

Happy Guest Star Tuesday!

508 "Hard Out" - ex-boyfriend Armand

Michael learns a little something of the nature of this man when he sends motorcycles to block his way and summon Fiona. Armand is not a nice man, he realizes.


As Fiona has explained to Michael, "He likes me just fine."

Armand: "Fiona. It's so good to see you. I was just finishing up some business in Rio when you called. My pilot flew us here as fast as he could."

And "I'm less...enthusiastic about him."

Fi: "Did you really have to send a fleet of motorcycles to pick me up?"
Armand: "I didn't have to. I wanted to."

Armand speaks ingratiatingly, although I don't know that he even tries to fake sincerity when he says, "You know me. Always a friend to those in need."
Fi: "What's your price, Armand?"
Armand: "No price. My help is free." Then, contradicting himself: "All I ask is one small favor."
He shows her a truck and requests: "I was hoping you could get it for me."
Fi cuts to the truth: "You mean steal it for you."
Armand: "I suppose you could call it that, yes."
Fi asks if she's supposed to shoot all the guards, and Armand says he doesn't care one way or the other: "I'll leave the details up to you. But if you want me to find out who built the bomb, I'll need you to get me this." Reiterating the quid-pro-quo nature of his "free" help.

Fi lets him know she's none too happy with her look and silent departure, while he calls out to her retreating form: "I'll wait for your call." I think that's supposed to be flirtation. He's just not very good at it.

No, he's not the least bit good at romance. Fiona reveals later to Michael that Armand's way of getting an introduction to her was to have a customs agent killed - for her associates, so they would introduce the two of them, presumably.

Michael may not be very romantic, but he doesn't pretend to be. Armand, on the other hand, comports himself as though he fancies himself a suave and charming man, when he's too much about what's in it for him to really touch a woman's heart.

Sam, who never meets Armand, instinctively understands the man when Fi explains the request favor and that "If we want his help, we have to do as he asks."
Sam: "That's funny. I heard the devil works the same way."


We learn that Armand helped Fiona get to the U.S., in exchange for involving her as the lookout for a kidnapping. Armand's not the kind of man who is up-front about what his little jobs are about, either. Another contrast to Michael, who treats Fiona with respect as a real partner who knows as much about the job as he does, every step of the way. Armand seems to keep Fiona in the dark about the ultimate expected outcome of the jobs she does for him. She learns again at the end of "Hard Out" that his "favor" has resulted in harm to someone else. It leaves Fi feeling used and manipulated, not a good feeling.

Armand shows up at the loft - letting himself in while Fi is away - and then dares call himself a guest as though he were 1) invited and 2) welcome.
He noses around Fiona's personal life not only by intruding into her home, but by prying questions.

Armand: "So this is home, then? After all the effort you put into getting to Miami, I expected something...more."
Fi: "What are you doing here, Armand?"
Armand: "Is that any way to greet a guest? One who comes bearing gifts, no less....These automatic rifles aren't even on the market yet." He caresses one of them.
I think he's attempting to flirt again when he remarks, blowing his own horn, "You'll recall that working with me has its perks." He draws near to Fiona.
Fiona declares that she's trying to do the job without guns, which elicits surprise in Armand. "Without guns? What has Miami done to you?"
(Words that evoke Larry taunting Michael, to me.)
He reaches out a hand to caress her hair, just as he'd caressed the rifles, while Fiona recoils.
Posted Image

I think that is an apt //. For Armand, violence = romance. That must be what he and Fiona had in common. However, unlike Michael, for whom the motivation is to accomplish something good - Fi: "You do what's right, no matter the cost to you," Armand is motivated by self-profit. And unlike Fiona, there seems to be no passion in Armand.

Armand continues prying: "Speaking of help, where is this boyfriend of yours that you went through so much effort for?"
Fi: "He's busy."
Armand strokes his cheek with a finger thoughtfully. "Hmm. I hope he's worth it."


At their final meeting....
Armand: "Lovely evening for an arms deal." And before he'll give Fi the info on the bomber, he again asks about her personal life: "Tell me something. Are you happy? Was it worth it? Coming here to live with an absentee boyfriend in his drab little flat...You were meant for much, much greater things."


After thus complimenting her - and I'm quite sure that was flirting! - Armand tells Fi: "You should know your boyfriend has some nasty enemies." Then makes a play for her as if his death is imminent! "If anything should happen, remember...you and I have a lot in common. I'm just a phone call away."


And then, as Fi protests that they are different in one crucial way: "I don't trade favors for blood," Armand proceeds to reveal to her that the favor she's done for him has cost a man his life. Fi reacts with shock and indignation: "You bastard."
Armand replies blandly: "Well, we know what kind of man I am. What I'd really like to know is, what kind of man sends you for my help?"
Fiona turns on her heel and leaves. As before, Armand calls after her: "It was good seeing you again. I've missed you, Fiona."


I think Michael would loathe Armand as much as Fi loathed Strickler. Both men were dispassionate and ingratiating. Both spoke matter-of-factly about unsavory things like blackmail and murder. Both tried to woo with flattery but don't exude any warmth. Both gave a minimum of detail and had the attitude that as long as Fi/Michael got what they wanted, they should be satisfied and not too curious. Both were about their own self-interest and embraced a "You scratch my back, I'll scratch yours" credo, while trying to pass themselves off as genuinely friendly and helpful.

I will say this for Armand: He really knows how to get under Fiona's skin.

Sorry, my guest star post is sounding suspiciously like a shipper post! You just may find some of these words repeated in Shipper Thursday!

Happy Guest Star Tuesday!

ohhh... is already wednesday...never mind

Have just watched all of season five in one "catch up" sitting and felt moved to comment on Greg Henry playing Ian Covey in Acceptable Loss.

Excellent performance and exceptional casting.
How many thought he was going to turn villain?

Hi, bronzebear, and welcome to the forum!

I loved Ian, too. If you're interested in reading about him, you could check out my post #206 on page 11, with a few pics there as well.

* * * *
Thanks for the pictures from "Eye For An Eye"s guest stars, bcmom!!

509 "Eye For An Eye"

I wanted to do Lucien, the crafty war criminal. And Dan, the sympathetic victim who is the protagonist of this episode. So I spent lots of time transcribing quotes for them.

But now, I think we should devote some time to revive our Smug SOBs. They were so much fun, and I think James Forte can be added to the list, even if he is but a single-episode character.

We can cover a bit of Dan as well, by taking just the confrontation scene when James meets Dan for the first time since betraying his old friend.

Confrontation: Dan v. James

James laughs in disbelief at sight of his old "friend": "You, you're supposed – "
Michael: "I wanted to tell you the good news, Mr. Forte, I'm not your stalker. Dan is."
Dan: "What, are you surprised after dumping me in a Chilean prison to die?"

Jesse announces "You were naughty" as he goes through the papers from the safe/vault to find the gene sequence, records of payoffs, and medical trial reports.


James goes on the offensive: "Oh, that's what this was all about. This is -- You were all in on this. This is just about ripping me off, huh?"

Dan correctly retorts: "No, we're just taking back what was rightfully mine." His eyes are cold anger.

James ignores this: "Dan. We can make all of this go away, you just name your price."

Dan: "Don't you get it?" Now there's pain in his eyes, and he speaks with strong feeling, understandably so. "This was never about money. This was about saving lives. This was about my company. This is about you stealing the only woman that I ever loved."

James still tries to negotiate, with no remorse nor even admission of wrongdoing: "You want to save lives, let's save lives. I'll give you a piece of the company. Sadie was no catch. You can consider yourself lucky. You just tell me what you want, and we can make all of this go away."

Seeing Sadie, whose approach he hasn't noticed, he backpedals. "Sadie, I can explain." (Naturally, she's not interested in listening.)




Smug SOB James Forte - Evidence:

* Fi calls him "our smug CEO"

* He deliberately turned on a friend. He planted false evidence on his friend in order to claim the gene sequence for his own and profit by it. Getting Dan sent to prison in Chile.

* He took what Dan wanted to use to benefit others, and used it to benefit himself first and foremost.

* He married Dan's wife, but he doesn't respect her.

* He was unethical in other ways too: "

* When confronted by the man he wronged, he does not apologize for his actions nor look the least bit remorseful.

* Rather, he first accuses Dan of wanting to "rip me off" - as if HLX is something legitimately his and not Dan's.

* He tries to buy Dan off. "We can make all this go away." He tries to sweep away the past 7 years of Dan's life, and his own transgressions, with money.

* He has the nerve to tell Dan that he's "lucky" and insults the pain he inflicted by calling Sadie "no catch" and by offering to "give" a part of the company to Dan - ignoring the fact that Dan loves Sadie, ignoring the fact that Dan has rightful claim to the company, as he's already pointed out.



V. Dan, the nobler of the two men: "There are labs that will duplicate the formula and sell it generically for one-tenth the price, making it accessible to anyone who needs it."



So, what do you think? Another Smug SOB for our collection? Do you have other evidence with which to convict him?


Happy Guest Star Tuesday!

Nice pics of the guest stars, bcmom.

Ah, Dixon. Love him. His scenes make me laugh. But I know I covered him before, and I've been repeating myself a lot lately. So I made myself get some quotes from Holcomb - who, after all, is a major role in this episode. I've not gotten through the whole ep yet, but I think there's enough to go on.

510 "Army Of One" - Holcomb

VO: Businesses often use independent contractors on jobs to contain costs and limit liability. Criminals do the same thing for similar reasons. Someone who just joined the team won't expect an equal cut of whatever your'e stealing, and if they don't know your plans, they can't go to the cops.


So right away we know: Holcomb is smart and careful.

Holcomb notes Michael's arrival: "You're Graham?"
Michael: "That's me."
Holcomb sticks to the essentials: "I'm Holcomb. This is Ward. We will be working together today." Introductions made, he strides purposefully towards the back employee entrance of the airport.


Michael attempts to get information: "Slow down, you wanna fill me in on what we're doing?"
Holcomb does not break stride to face Michael, nor does he give out information: " I can tell you what we're not doing. We're not asking questions."


Michael tries again. "I gotta know what the job is. I gotta know – "
Holcomb cuts him off: "You're gonna press some buttons on the computer when I tell you to."


Holcomb is curt and clearly doesn't want to show his hand. Maybe this is why Michael becomes suspicious that he has some tricks up his sleeve.

* *

Seeing Ward unloading guns from a duffle bag...

Michael: "Uh, guys? I thought I was just pushin' buttons, what's with the hardware?"

Now that the job is set to begin, Holcomb gives Michael the outline: "Ok. Mr. Inquisitive, I'm only gonna say this once. A billionaire named Richard Grombach is landing here today at noon. By then we are going to have this whole place locked down. We'll board his plane. We'll use our, uh, 'hardware' to take care of his security detail and to convince Mr. Grombach to give up his bank codes, and then you –" He taps Michael's chest with the butt of the gun while clucking his tongue " - you get to push some buttons. Got it?" And he turns away.

Michael: "Sounds good. I wish you would have told me earlier, I would have brought my own piece. Why don't you give me one of those bad boys, I'll make myself useful."
Holcomb doesn't want help: "Thanks. But we got this."

Holcomb & Ward burst through the back office doors into the lobby/terminal of the small private airport, a gun in each hand. Holcomb thus announces their presence and the nature of their intentions.
"Everyone to the center of the room! Now"


Some general chaos ensues,punctuated by gasps and cries from those in the airport and yells of "Down" and"Now" from the criminals, plus some gunfire that makes people scream althoughno one is shot. Michael neutralizes a security guard who tries to sneak up with his gun drawn, effectively saving not only his life, but those of all the hostages, by preventing an escalation of violence. Holcomb butts the security guard in the head, Ward brings in Maddie and a few other stray folks from outside, and Holcomb makes his speech.



"All right, everyone, may I have yourattention? We're not here to hurt you. In fact, you are going to be our new partners in a little business venture. Your job here today is easy. Stay calm, and do as you're told. And in exchange for a job well done, you will receive two things: A gift certificate for a steak dinner, and your lives. Now, I know some of you must be concerned that you've seen our faces. Don't be, because in a few hours, my team and I are gonna be on a beach in a country that does not cooperate with U.S. law enforcement. So you see, you have nothing to fear as long as things go well today. But if things don't go well....If you resist, or try to call the police, then I'm going to be forced to use this." He pulls a grenade from within his suit jacket, raising it high for all to see. "And kill every –single – one of you. Steak dinner or grenade. The choice is yours."

During this speech, Holcomb speaks matter-of-factly, offering a few smiles here and there and a semi-friendly voice, but gregariousness is not in his nature. He tries to present himself as reasonable, but the underlying menace would come through in his voice even without the weapons.



As Sam would say "When you put it that way..." The stick is much more prominent than the carrot - the choice is not really a choice at all. The hostages keep quiet and do as they are told.

And Michael, of course, continues to seek ways to put cracks into the well-formed plans of Holcomb.

Happy Guest Star Tuesday!

510 "Army Of One" - Holcomb

VO: Businesses often use independent contractors on jobs to contain costs and limit liability. Criminals do the same thing for similar reasons. Someone who just joined the team won't expect an equal cut of whatever your'e stealing, and if they don't know your plans, they can't go to the cops.


So right away we know: Holcomb is smart and careful.

Holcomb notes Michael's arrival: "You're Graham?"
Michael: "That's me."
Holcomb sticks to the essentials: "I'm Holcomb. This is Ward. We will be working together today." Introductions made, he strides purposefully towards the back employee entrance of the airport.


Michael attempts to get information: "Slow down, you wanna fill me in on what we're doing?"
Holcomb does not break stride to face Michael, nor does he give out information: " I can tell you what we're not doing. We're not asking questions."


Michael tries again. "I gotta know what the job is. I gotta know – "
Holcomb cuts him off: "You're gonna press some buttons on the computer when I tell you to."


Holcomb is curt and clearly doesn't want to show his hand. Maybe this is why Michael becomes suspicious that he has some tricks up his sleeve.

* *

Seeing Ward unloading guns from a duffle bag...

Michael: "Uh, guys? I thought I was just pushin' buttons, what's with the hardware?"

Now that the job is set to begin, Holcomb gives Michael the outline: "Ok. Mr. Inquisitive, I'm only gonna say this once. A billionaire named Richard Grombach is landing here today at noon. By then we are going to have this whole place locked down. We'll board his plane. We'll use our, uh, 'hardware' to take care of his security detail and to convince Mr. Grombach to give up his bank codes, and then you –" He taps Michael's chest with the butt of the gun while clucking his tongue " - you get to push some buttons. Got it?" And he turns away.

Michael: "Sounds good. I wish you would have told me earlier, I would have brought my own piece. Why don't you give me one of those bad boys, I'll make myself useful."
Holcomb doesn't want help: "Thanks. But we got this."

Holcomb & Ward burst through the back office doors into the lobby/terminal of the small private airport, a gun in each hand. Holcomb thus announces their presence and the nature of their intentions.

My vote for most fun [S5] guest star is Dixon ... He was SO funny!

Dixon: "I said I don't want to talk to you. Go away!"
Sam: "Dixon, I just need a small favor, ok?"
Dixon: "Favors are for friends, and friends don't taze one another and put them in the trunks of cars!" (True, that.)
Sam: "First of all, that was years ago. Second, I said I was sorry. And you know, third, if you'd agreed to help, I wouldn't have had to do it."
Dixon: "You never have to taze anyone! Ever! How can you sit there and - mmm - (frustrated gesture of waving no with hands) - Leave me alone!"
Sam: "Dixon. Just hear me out. A quick trip to your lab, we take some stuff off a computer, you never see me again."
Dixon: "Oh, since you put it that way...NO!"
(Of course, Fi then enters and tazes him. Sam & Fi then put him in the trunk...)

(Upon Fi opening the trunk later...)
Dixon: "You guys suck!"

(Fi spots his tracking anklet.)
Sam: "You're under house arrest? Why didn't you say something?"
Dixon: "Oh, I'm sorry, did I forget to mention that when I was unconscious? I'm unconscious because you tazed me!"

Sam: "You help us with our computer problem, I'll call in a favor with my cop buddies, see what we can work out."
Dixon: "So you're saying that if I do you a favor, that you'll attempt to solve the problem that you just created for me!"
Giving up: "Fine..fine, fine!


:lol: :lol: :lol:


Holcomb and Dixon were hilarious! Great job Bcmom :D and Phillie :D on the screen caps and star posts. I enjoyed them so much, I put them all together.
