Sean in "Crossing Jordan"

When we last saw Smith and company, they had just discovered the real threat of Daniel, the overwhelming menace of his philosophies. As a result, they were attempting to form a strong alliance in opposition to the tyrannies Daniel’s followers present, a group aiming for peaceful order, called the Western Alliance, centered at thunder Mountain. Jeremiah is leading its first town, Milhaven,and having a few problems, including a nosy reporter.
Kurdy and Smith take on the job of convincing new towns to come in with the alliance. Their first success is Ridgeway, which they won to their cause by promising to keep them safe from Daniel’s armies. Smith assures Kurdy that the town will ally with them, but Kurdy isn’t so sure.
Smith: They’ll join us.
Kurdy: Did God say that?
Smith: Maybe.
Kurdy: You’re just making that up now.
Smith: Not a chance! The last time I said something on God’s behalf when he didn’t really say it, my tongue turned black for a week!






Smith then catches a look at himself in a glass door. He sticks out his tongue, looks at it for a moment then says: Ah, nutsth!
LOL







Thunder begins behind him and looking up, Smith says, “Trouble’s coming.”
Boy, is he right!


Hugs,
Rach

Thanks Mai and Romeny. My goal is to inform people about the true scope of Sean's excellent work. It makes me feel good to hear that it resonates.

Crossing Jordan - Part Two

Their next destination is the town of Innsmith. As they get ready to depart, Kurdy finds Smith in the truck waiting, dazed, looking as if he is terrified. He tells Kurdy nothing is wrong, but when Kurdy suggests they stop at Milhaven and take Jeremiah along, Smith argues against it, gently.






Jeremiah is not expecting them. He’s living happily with Libby in the little town. They go in for tea, but Smith sits apart, in another room, actually. This scene is well done to show Smith’s alienation, how the burden of knowledge he carries separates him, even from his friends.





Kurdy convinces Jeremiah to accompany them and Libby decides to come along, to keep an eye on Jeremiah and the leader of Innsmith who had shown a…fondness…for Jeremiah in the past.
Smith goes out for air only to encounter the reporter. In trying NOT to give any information, he manages to accidently give the journalist pretty much free reign, which comes back to haunt him later.







More tomorrow!

Hugs,
Rach

I love Smith's facial expressions, you can almost read the story through his looks alone.

You sure can, Romeny! But then, you always can with Sean!

Crossing Jordan Part Three

In the meantime, Sims’ group finds out that Ridgeway has joined the Alliance and sets them up as their first target. They arrive while the town is celebrating, and while Smith and Kurdy are having a gracious dinner with Jeremiah and Libby in Milhaven. Jeremiah, Kurdy and Libby are laughing and talking but Smith, sitting at one end of the table, seems again isolated. His face is a mask of torment, concern, as if he knows what is happening in Ridgeway but is helpless to stop it. The viewer wonders just how MUCH he knows and what power that knowledge gives him. There is a wonderful run of filming that overlays the laughing group, the terror of Ridgeway, and Smith’s agony. This is something you never would have seen on tv at this time.











Finally, Smith looks at Libby with an almost accusatory expression.  It made my skin crawl.
Daniel’s men load the people of Ridgeway into trucks and haul them away into servitude, except for one of their leaders who hides. Sims tells his men to burn the town down.
While they are packing to leave the next morning, Smith attempts to convince Libby not go, but to no avail.





But something odd is going on. A young woman brings them a gift of food and two men who have been fighting suddenly come to Jeremiah and tell him the will now get along. Apparently, the newspaper reporter Smith told nothing last night has printed the most sensational things he had heard about the Thunder Mountain group and now everyone is scared of them. When Jeremiah finds out that Smith is responsible, albeit unwittingly, poor Smith is relegated to riding in the rear of the truck all the way to Innsmith.






Once at Innsmith, the leaders have demands of their own to be worked out, but an agreement is reached. Just after, Kurdy and Jeremiah hear of trouble at Ridgeway. Libby seems as surprised as any of them but there is, at the same time, a strange look on her face.. Kurdy and Jeremiah decide to go back to Ridgeway to check things out.



Smith is nowhere to be found, so the other two men go, leaving Smith and Libby at Innsmith.
Poor Smith is sitting alone, clutching his bag. He is obviously in great emotional pain. He watches Libby playing with the children and batters his self physically, trying to deal with the pain of an unbearable burden.

More coming!
