Steele Trap – 10

Back on the island, the Easter egg hunt is in full swing!

Ambrosehecalls

And speaking of swinging, Randi seems eager to swing with Steele. Our detective, however, is all business.

“Ambrose!” Steele shouts.

blindmansbluff

“It’s just like Blind Man’s Bluff,” Randi gushes. Wait. I thought it was an Easter egg hunt.  “Come out, come out, wherever you are!” she calls.

“Ambrose! Mr. Blinn!” Mr. Steele calls again. He seems a little uneasy at Randi’s talons nails affixed to his sleeve.

Steele decides it’s time to get up close and personal with his former patient.   “Miss Russell, refresh my memory. When exactly did I …”
refreshmymemory
“… er …

And now they’re playing charades, it seems.

twoyearsago

“Two years ago,” she says. She laughs. “I’m really very naughty.”

stunned

I’m stunned. So is Steele.

personallifeisyourown

“Your personal life is your own,” Mr. Steele assures her.
drharry
“No, no. I mean, Dr. Harvey Bernbaum was supposed to do the operation, but he got in a fender bender
on the way to the hospital.”

sinceIwasprepped

Since I was all prepped and everything, he asked if you could take over for him. So you probably never even knew my name.”

neverknewmyname

Something tells me a lot of the gentlemen Randi interacts with never bother to learn her name.

neveractuallymetbefore

Randi seems to have a special attachment to her doctor. I believe this is called “transference.” Or maybe “promiscuity.”

“So we’ve never actually met before, except in the operating room,” she explains.

behindasurgicalmask

“And me behind a surgical mask.” Randi seems eagers to find out what’s behind Steele’s mask clothing.
whenIcameto
“When I came to, there was Dr. Bernbaum.  And as soon as I got out of the hospital, I went straight to Switzerland …”

thankyouproperly

“… and I never got a chance to thank you properly.”

No problem. He accepts cash, Visa cards and money orders. No personal checks, please.

suddenattack

Oh. She means that kind of thanks. Pretty sure he’d prefer cash.

atackle

I may be wrong, but I don’t think Steele is into her.

abondscene

And now we’re playing … Twister?

thisisfun

“This is FUN!” Randi declares. Steele seems … doubtful.

anothersmooch

Randi attacks again.

manofmedicine
When she comes up for air, Mr. Steele tries desperately to protect his virtue. “Miss Russell, please! I’m a man of medicine”

shedoesntcare

And Randi wants to play doctor.

lookingforescape

Steele writhes … in passion? I don’t think so.  Struggling to escape, he throws out one arm.

wellwornshoes

Hm. It appears Mr. Steele would rather play footsy with someone else. Wait a minute!

missrussell

“Uh, Miss Russell-”

lookoverthere

He gives his discovery a pointed glance. Randi finally notices.

eeeeek

Is this what Randi looks like when she’s aroused?

Nope. She looks like that when she’s screaming.

heardascream

Meanwhile, Laura and Feldman are beating the bushes. They hear Randi’s scream …

theyruntothescene

… and run to see what’s going on.

examiningthebody

They  find Steele’s bending over the body as Randi stands nearby. “Ambrose,” Feldman identifies.
somuchpathos
“He’s dead,” Randi says, displaying the whole gamut of emotions, from A to B.

lauraglares

Laura, looking grim, joins Steele.

none

“And then there were none,” Steele confides.

whatimafraidof

“That’s what I’m afraid of,” his partner answers.

barryfitzgerald

“No,” Steele corrects her. “The movie.”
comingunhinged
“What movie?”
forgodssakejpg
“Barry Fitzgerald, Walter Huston, Louis Hayward, June Depree, for God’s sake.”
Laura, who apparently has forgotten Mr. Steele is a film buff, grows impatient.

comingunhinged
“Get a grip on yourself. You’re coming unhinged.”
But Steele persists.

luredtoaremoteisland
“A group of people are lured to a remote island and systematically murdered.”

crazedkiller

“Laura,” he concludes, “We’re trapped on this island with a crazed killer.”

okaythen

Laura ponders his ominous words …

    >>“He’s dead,” Randi says, displaying the whole gamut of emotions, from A to B.<< – LOL

    Randi is getting more action than Laura. Perhaps Laura should take a page from her playbook. Nice to see that Mr. Steele is not enjoying Randi's advances. Do you think Lynne asked Michael to write a kissing scene for her with Pierce?

    Me too.

    While Laura is keeping Steele in check, she is giving Randi too much opportunity with and access to Steele. Yes it is great that he isn’t even mildly interested.

    Laura’s unhinged comment to Steele is strange. He doesn’t panic at dead bodies. He knows how to handle himself. Is she believing his buffoon doctor role?
