Steele Trap – 17

In response to the bloodcurdling cry …

almosteverybodyleaves

… everyone hurries to see what’s going on.

randibentover

They find Randi upstairs.

areyouallright

Feldman is the first to reach her. “Are you all right, Randi?” he asks.
Sorry, Feldie. You’re not the droid she’s looking for,

Iwalkedin
She races into Steele’s arms.

clammygrabbedme

“I walked in, and something clammy grabbed me!”

You mean THIS clammy?

wetnylons

They hurray into Steele’s room. Apparently Laura left some of her lingerie on the line. My, what long legs you have, Nurse Groggins!

Safety tip: Nylon is highly flammable. Watch where you’re waving that candelabra, Feldman!

He’s not worried.

oddplace

“Ugh,” he says. “They’re wet.”

“Odd place for Miss Groggins to hang her laundry,” Steele comments.

whoputthemthere

Fortunately, Detective Feldman has taken the lead on this investigation: “Yes. If she’s the one who put them there.”
Silent Partner suggests they ask Myrt – er, Laura.

But wait! Something is wrong here!

whereisshe

“Where is she?”
thoughtshewasbehind
Madeline says she thought Laura was right behind her. Nope.
feldmantakesthelead
The group heads out to try to find the missing nurse. Naturally, heroic Feldman is in the lead.

Oh, dear. Lying down on the job, Laura?

standback

Dr. Bellows tells everybody to stand back.

After all, he’s the medical professional here.

musthavefallen

“She must have fallen in the commotion,” Detective Feldman surmises.

orwaspushed

Randi thinks maybe she was pushed.

checkherpulse

Steele places his fingers on Laura’s delicate neck. Bad news.

myrtlelauragroggins

“I’m afraid we shall never know. Myrtle Laura Groggins is … dead.”

stoopstopickherup

Mr. Steele gallantly picks up the corpse.

carriesherupstairs

He carries her upstairs …

thatlooksuncomfortrable

… into his bedroom … (Note: I’d think that pose would be hard on Stephanie Zimbalist’s neck.)

groanswitheffort

.. lays her gently on the bed …

puttingonweight

… and quietly insults her.  “Putting on a little weight, aren’t we?”

glare

Oh, you’ll pay for that one, Mr. Steele.

hopeyouarethelastvictim

Tenderly, he arranges a pillow underneath her head. “I certainly hope you’re the last victim,” he whispers. “We’re beginning to run out of rooms.”

patsherhand

He arranges her arms over her chest and, solemnly, leaves the room.

Aw. So sad.

    I never noticed how huge those pantyhose were before. Sheesh! Definitely not Laura’s.

    So that’s why he asked if she was wearing pantyhose. And, yes, those are a bit long. But perhaps they stretch due to the weight of the water? That, or Laura is much taller than she is letting on.

    That position does look rather uncomfortable (both on the stairs and in his arms). Finally, he gets Laura in his arms and she is “unconscious”. Not nice to talk about a woman’s weight, Mr. Steele. tsk, tsk, tsk

    And why, if Myrtle is his inamorata, is he not more upset that she has just died?

    Last time I checked pantyhose are sheer; these look as thick as pants. They are really long too. And what was Randi doing in the bathroom with the lights off? It is amazing that no one heard Laura fall down the stairs. This scene has a number of issues.

    By the way that clam video is the grossest ever. Great find.
