The 39 steps
August 20, 2008
It’s 39 days to go until the start of season 3 in America.
There are 39 episodes for season 1 and 2. (Not taking the unaired episode in account or the original pilot, as not everybody can see those)
I started to watch the episodes again. One episode a day.
And then I got the plan to write a small scene for every episode. (Never more than 1 page long)
Disclaimer: B&S doesn’t belong to me. Written with love, not for money.
Summary: Jason had faith.
“So, who’s this ‘we’ I keep hearing about?” Robert asks Jason.
“Kevin.. and me.”
“Kevin as in Kevin Walker? Kitty brother? The one, you vowed, you’d never want to see again?” Robert looks over is glasses at his brother. Jason smiles sheepishly.
“He’s not so bad. We divided the chores and do our own thing. He’s well organized. And knows a lot people. And has a good taste too.” The last compliment is a more reluctant one.
“So do you.”
“I know.” Jason smiles. “I just expected him to be….. different?” But when Robert looks at him again, Jason looks away. And Robert sighs:
“Don’t fall in love with him, Jason. Seriously. He’d be bad news.”
“I know. You warned me before and you told me about his track-record with men. And…. Is it alright if I don’t hate him as much as I thought I did?” Robert finds Jason’s sarcasm in his direction not very charming.
“I would never stop you from befriending him. I am merely asking you to think twice about starting a relationship with him….”
“Starting a…? Oh, come, Bobby, I know better than that. Besides he made it clear, that he hates you.” The words escape Jason’s lips before he notices and he’s a bit shocked. He doesn’t want to create problems for Robert and Kitty, so he kept quiet about the details of his terrible lunch-date with Kevin.
“Kevin doesn’t hate me, he hates my political point of view and he is entitled too. His ideas and values in life are important to him and he stands by them. I can only admire that. And I can still disagree with him.” Robert replies calmly. “I just don’t want you to get sucked into the Walker-world, they are sort of … addictive?” Robert tries and Jason laughs.
“Don’t worry. Kevin and I are just ‘non-enemies’ at the moment.”
“Don’t go beyond that line.” Robert warns again. “You have no idea who and what you’re dealing with here. If Kevin is like Kitty, he’ll get under your skin and then, one moment, you will discover that you can’t live without her… him.” he corrects himself.
“Very cute, but don’t worry. Kevin and I have nothing in common. We are just civil to each other for the sake of you and Kitty. I have faith that I can defend myself against Kevin and the other Walkers.” Jason smiles. Robert gives him a doubtful look, but then he smiles.
“Fine. Dig your own grave by not taking me seriously. It’s too late for me. I’m already lost.”
“Oh, look at the time, I have to go, I have a lunch with Kevin in 20 minutes.” As he sees Robert watch him grab his coat, Jason cannot help but grin: “Don’t worry. I’ll take a dish with plenty of garlic to keep the Walker-vampire away.. and I always carry my cross.”
“Don’t forget your stake and holy water, bro!” yells Robert, but Jason is already gone.
