This is a recap of the ninth episode of Pan Am, entitled Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Spoilers ahead if you have not seen it!
The title of this episode, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is a double entendre because there were certainly some kisses and deﬁnitely some bangs of one sort or another.
Some kissing was involved when Dean and Colette decide to play hooky and drive up to the country to spend some time together. Dean promises to give Colette a ﬂying lesson. He fails to tell her the plane is at his parents and they’re having lunch with them. There’s an embarrassing mix up with Colette being mistaken for Bridget. Colette storms off after being asked if she’s pregnant. Dean ﬁnds her in a barn and apologizes. And then they’re kissing and rolling around in the hay, naked. Oh, la la!
Laura has to deal with the new substitute Captain, Dennis. He slaps her ass and blatantly tries to stare down her shirt. Laura “ accidentally” spills coffee on him for which he threatens to report her. But Ted pulls Dennis aside and has a word with him and all is good. Ted decides he wants payback for this favor. Laura is to pretend to be his girlfriend and interrupt his “date” set up by his parents with his childhood friend, Amanda, whom he had a crush on back in the day. Ted ends up ﬂirting with Amanda and disappearing. Laura, who was waiting to make her dramatic entrance bumps into Dennis who reveals that Ted said he was dating Laura and said lots of nice things about her. Looks like Laura feels sorry for turning down Ted multiple times. It’s alright though. Ashley Greene of Twilight fame, who plays Amanda, did such a horrible job acting she won’t be asked back to the show, I’m sure. You’ll have him back next episode Laura.
Maggie has to deal with her obnoxious hippie friend, Sam, who asks her to get him on a ﬂight to London so he can protest at the nuclear arms symposium. Sam causes a ruckus on the plane by yelling at Congressman Rawlings who is also ﬂying to attend the symposium. Later in London, Sam’s all grumpy and stuff cause he wasn’t there to get tossed in jail with his buddies, also protesting nuclear arms. He tells Maggie that she ﬂies with so many important people that she could talk to them if she wanted. Instead she’s serving them lunch. Maggie feels guilty and decides to confront Congressman Rawlings about his position on nuclear testing. They end up having sex. Of course, Maggie then ﬁnds Rawlings speech and is not happy with it and sets it on ﬁre. She also kinda sets the bathroom on ﬁre too. The ﬁre alarm goes off. Everyone in the hotel comes running out. It’s chaos. Rawlings chases after Maggie saying she’s “reckless and pigheaded and crazy” and he likes it. She gives him a look of pure disgust and races off.
Kate wants to leave the CIA but she’s forced into one more job. Of course, the “simple” job she’s given turns into something complicated. Again, I have to wonder if the CIA has any competent spy intelligence in their organization? Or is Kate being given on the job training because suddenly, Kate ﬁnds herself an actual spy and she has to distract a jeweler so another agent can switch something in the jeweler’s safe. Of course, she’s unable to do that and somehow Kate ends up shooting the jeweler to prevent him from stabbing another agent. Somehow, I don’t think this is Kate’s last job with the CIA.
