She diverts her attention to the open side of the desk where Harris crouches down, says “peek-a-boo” and kills Cassie Bernall at point blanc range. The gun recoils and slams into Harris’ nose, breaking it as his back slams into the desk beside him. As he stands up, touches the blood running from his nose, He discovers another female student hiding behind a chair. He asks her if she wants to die, she shakes her head saying no.

Harris walks away as John Savage peeks his head out of the side of the table. He calmly asks Klebold “Hey Dylan, what are you doing?” Klebold sighs and replies “Oh, just killing people.” John Savage, not knowing what to reply, simply says “oh”. John Savage takes a breath and asks Klebold “are you going to kill me?” and Klebold, because of the fire alarms, replies “what?” John Savage restates his question. Klebold takes a breath, considering the possibilities while staring directly at John Savage. He then replies “no man. Just get out of here. Just run…” John Savage doesn’t move. “Run” Klebold repeats. Once again, John Savage does not move, unknowing of whether this was a joke and he would be killed. Klebold looks around and then yells “RUN!” John Savage gets up and sprints out of the library, through the halls, and makes it out of the school safely and uninjured.

(Preamble: It would be a crying shame if certain folks in the TV industry didn’t sit up and take notice of this episode when the time comes around for handing out awards… Just sayin’…)
And speaking about crying: we were warned, and we were not lied to! I definitely had a couple tissues to soak up some tears watching Alisha Newton’s beautiful performance. Mark Haroun’s script offered her a great opportunity to showcase a range of emotions, and she delivered!
“Every generation has a story” is the Season 11 theme, and “Highs and Lows” jumped right into the spirit of things.
He has an impressive track record, starting as the u/s Phantom in the early 1990s, eventually becoming standby for Peter Cousens in 1997. Then the principal Phantom in the UK “Millennium Tour” in 1998-99 and in West End in 1999-2001. He returned as the standby in 2009, a position he still holds.
His Christines includes: Celinde Schoenmaker, Harriet Jones, Maria Coyne, Emmi Christensson, Lisa-Anne Wood, Ashleigh Fleming, Olivia Brereton, Sofia Escobar, Anna O’Byrne, Katy Treharne, Claire Doyle, Katie Hall, Tabitha Webb, Gina Beck, Zoë Curlett, Joanne Pullen, Katrina Murphy, Deborah Dutcher, Claire Louise Hammacott, Ana Marina, Charlotte Page, Meredith Braun and Lisa Waddingham Duby. Possibly also others!
“My original plan was to write a paper about trick riding. I figured my most memorable moment was the time I was Roman riding at a rodeo. At the last minute I decided to take a difficult jump, and I totally nailed it. But then I realized that it wasn’t the Roman riding or the jump that made that moment memorable. It was the people watching. And I’m not talking about the random people sitting in the crowd. I’m talking about my people. My mom, dad, sister, uncle, grandparents, and great-grandparents. So my most memorable moment was in fact the day I was adopted. The day I got my people. The people who nag me to do my homework and clean my room. The people who are always there for me, even when we’re miles apart. The people whose hearts are always in the right place.The people who never seem to give up, no matter what. I guess it’s true what they say. You don’t get to pick your family. But when you’re adopted the opposite is also true. Your family gets to pick you. Maybe it was meant to be, or maybe it just sort of happened. But one thing I’m certain of is that my most memorable moment was when these people became my people.”
Earlier today my loving wife, Lisa, she gave me full permission to bask in my glory days. And she assumed that, that was the greatest time of my life, but that’s not actually true. Now don’t get me wrong I loved my days in the rodeo, especially the memories, they’ve lasted a lifetime. But being a hall of famer, it wouldn’t mean anything to me if I didn’t have my family and my special friends to share it with. So I wanna thank them, and you all know who you are, for making these days, the here and now, the true glory days of my life.
(Hoping someone can re-post that pic with the lights, because I’ve gone looking but couldn’t locate it.)
I also can’t believe Lisa would willingly be involved in something she knew to be illegal according to breeding practices as outlined by The Jockey Club (or whatever its equivalent might be in the Heartland universe).
The racehorse in question looks to be something Amy has been asked to work on, but we don’t know the reasons quite yet. So, I can see Amy and Georgie possibly getting curious about it to get to the root of its problem.
If it turns out this horse is an illegal clone that Lisa’s been trying to sell, it now boils down to plausible deniability. What did Lisa know, and when did she know it, if she knows it at all?
