Hawaii Five-O > Hawaii Five-0 Review: Ending With A Bang > Comments Page 6
Wow wow wow!!! Loved every single second of the episode. They just hit it out of the park!!! Every single episode this season just got better and better. If I write every single thing i loved I would be writing all day. But simply put, it was amazing.
Max broke my heart when he asked if he was gonna die, fryer dying was actually sad even though he is not my fave. Steve and danno in the car when danno had to take the private call, steve asking if he should stick his head out the window and drive with his feet, hilarious. Steve and danno's friendship just amazing. And of course the choice chin had to make kono or malia. WHo could do that?? He knows kono is trained and malia is not, he had to go help the civilian over the fellow cop even though it is his cousin. Kono will be just fine. In reality she would not be but on TV she will get out of the water somehow. And of course steves mom being shelbourne....what a ride! Loved it!
Sorry no edit on here, meant to say when WoFat was captured, not dead.
I really liked the episode for the little things. The way both Steve and Danny touched each other quick on the back/shoulder after the bomb scene as if to say "glad you are OK", the car discussion was great. Glad that Danny brought up the letter from the last couple episodes, so that it didn't just die and go away. I hope the whole CIA thing gets brought up in next season as well. As for Kono, they taped her hands together but in the front, not the back, so she should be able to swim. She was awake and is a strong swimmer....bad judgement on Toothpick's part. As for Chin, you probably have to figure he tried to save the "civilian" because she had a lesser chance of figuring a way to get out of a situation. It will be a long summer for me...I just got hooked a couple months ago and now have been repeat watching all the episodes.
Why did Joe suddenly feel it was fine to tell Steve about Shelburne once WoFat was dead. WoFat didnt even know who Shelburne was and he would only have been a kid 20 yrs ago. What was Adams uncle's involvment. If Mom MgGarret wanted to protect her kids, why not take them with her. There are dozens of places you can go to disappear. How did she give them a better life by abandoning them.
The show suffers from bad writing and bad plots. Lori was a badly written character but she's not the only one. Danny is just as annoying and he serves no purpose but to whine at Steve. There is no team dynamic, only forced hokey banter between Steve and Danny. Chin and Kono have been side lined all season. The second half of the season has been mostly unwatchable. It improved last week but all the same problems just resurfaced in this episode.
Kono is the weakest character on the show. I hope she doesn't make it back. The show will be better off without her. The original Kono was a guy and he only lasted 4 seasons.
Guys like I said before, Grace Park isn't going anywhere and P Lenkov wouldn't dare to kill her off, GP has a huge fanbase and he would lose all of them if Kono died.
My guess is Kono either rescues herself or Chin told Adam. I would love to see Adam rescuing her, would totally redeem himself for last episode.
Idk why people are complaining so much, I thought it was a pretty good finale
I was really, really scared (literally) that Kono would be killed off of the show. I agree that she spends a Lot of time in the water and has a great chance of getting out of that fix Alive. Then I was worried about Max, I have come to really like his character and his quiet honor and courage. Fryer did grow on me, as well, so also sad to see him go. Wondered about Steve's Mom and Shelbourne, well, don't have to wonder anymore. Hope they do more with that. Would love to see Adam help Kono out of the fix she's in, would help to solidify his path to legitimacy that he appears to be wanting.
I think that I wanted to see more linkage between what was going on with the CIA and Wo Fat; flesh this story line out more. I also agree with the reviewer who asked why the end of the alley wasn't cordoned off - but my initial thought was that Hilary was waiting for someone in particular, Max just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. She was gunning for someone else, and
I am so mad they might kill off Kono. If they do I will never watch the show again!!!!!!
Wow, I thought this was great. I liked the first season better, but I don't see how people call themselves fans and then rip the show apart each week. I don't think I would watch if I hated it that much.
Thank you to H50, I liked the episodes since Lori has left. More concentration on the original 4 in season 3, looks like that is where they are headed. We do need other people to tell a story though. I will wait to see what Steve's mom's explanation is before I cast judgement. I think Chin got word to Adam somehow and he will help Kono. Reality police can pick apart something on any show at anytime, I'm looking for entertainment and I got it last night.
I could write pages on the what was wrong with this episode. Stupid plots, stupid characterization and such a lame ending to the Shelburn thing. So, Mommy McGarrett couldn't make contact with her kids in 20 years because she was trying to protect them from WoFat. Hello, didn't WoFat try and kill Steve because of Shelburne. Max acted like an idiot. I love Terry O Quin but his storyline was just awful. He couldn't tell Steve about his mom because he was protecting him. The Malia and Kono thing just popped up from nowhere. Such a disappointing finale. The writers really need to tighen up on their writing skills. I love AOL but he's wasted on this show.
Loved this episode, lots of action. I was hoping it was Steve's Mom, I think this will be a great story arc for next season, and Alex's face said it all. I would do anything for my children in order to keep them safe.
Leaving Kono in the water was expected from the promo's, but the total nasty from Delano, for making Chin choose and then shoots Malia anyway? At least I think she was shot, could have been stabbed. Truly horrible people. The woman was total scum also, so glad Steve took her out. Rachel and Danny fighting over Grace once again. I'm sure something will be arranged, but I hope he does not go back to Rachel. It should however, be a good story line.
I'm glad Adam will still be in the picture, and I also hope he rescue's Kono.
Aside from the Lori disaster, I feel the show redeemed itself in the second half and I enjoyed this 2nd season of H50 and am looking forward to season 3.
Some people are WAY to critical of a procedural TV show. It doesn't need to be deep and meaningful at every turn. That said, I thought it was a great episode. Lots of action and drama. A couple of parts were a little choppy but it didn't take from the overall entertainment value. It was great to see Alex looking like Alex again. I'll definitely tune in next season.
Cont... Kono will be fine, I am hoping they have Adam save her. Poor Chin is going to be messed up for a while. What a horrible situation he was put in. It would make sense that he would go for his wife. Danny go head to head with Rachel next season should also be good. I hope the dirt flies, Rachel deserves it. This was a great episode, sorry so many have disagreed, but I will be watching next season with great anticipation. I'm sure 5-0 will get "toothpick" and Delano and I can't wait, these were truly nasty people. Thank you H50, I did not agree with the whole season, but I think that the second half was great. Thanks for sticking by Alex and doing a good job cover for him.
I LOVED the season finale, and thought yes I agree there were some holes in the plot, this show had more excitement and action in the first 10 minutes than any other show put together on tv today! I love the cast and the characters and I almost vowed to stop watching until Lori Weston left (did anyone even notice shew was gone anyway??). I think the writers are brilliant for the most part, and with the few forgiveable misses here and there (the bloody trail everyone missed, the cut from commercial to Chin releasing Frank..etc., Shelburnes draggin on), we should still be thankful this show with substance has been renewed..and the possible story lines spinning from his mom being alive will be great - WE FANS and Steve have a lot of questions for Doris! I don't want to see Steve with anyone other than me, but oh well...I am still and always will remain, a FAN! Looking forward to Season 3!! Great job!!
I thought this was a great episode. It had a lot of action. The explosion scene was done very well. The villians in this one sure give Wofat some competition for evil. Jim...you did call his Mom, a long time ago, at that time I did not think of that. I don't understand why people think a mother would not do anything to protect her own children, including leaving them. There are many good loving mother's who have given up their children, because they knew that they could not give them the life they deserve. We don't know the whole story yet. I agree to a point that once Steve became a seal, his father should have explained what had happened. Lets give the writers a chance to have the mother explain her situation. I anxious to see who they get to play Steve's mother.
I loved the finale! Y'all all cranky today! All procedurals have glitches in the actual procedure; TV writers aren't bound by reality, thank the gods. Our glitches were minimal. There was MUCH action last night, TWO vicious crims (Delano and that crazy chick, who stayed in the alley in order to lure the 5-0s back to the bomb-rigged HPD, btw, so that was NOT a plot hole), a very adorable cargument, a beeeeeeeeeeautiful Steve, and the Kono/Malia thing was pretty intense, you gotta admit. And Alex O rocked that ending. You may have guessed it, you may be over Shelburne, but to me, the thought of Alex O playing this thing out, with a very weird and wayward Mommy, THAT alone would bring me back in the Fall! Woot!
Thats another reason I am not looking forward to next season. I can't believe Cath is actually going to be ON the team. The second she messes with the team dynamic, I'm out.
I completely forgot, why do we care who Shelburne is and why is she so important she needs to be hid?!
I was SO lost; Kono is on the phone with Adam and suddenly Chin is getting Delano out of Jail - I had to rewind, thought I fell asleep and missed something!?
How exactly did Adam get out of Jail?! Didn't he kidnap TWO people (one being a cop) and threaten a whole lot of Officers with a gun!? (yes, bail I know!)
Are we not done with the kidnapping of the Fab Four? I mean didn't the 'bad guy' take photos of the WHOLE team?! Except Steve, he only watched him - did we see him take a photo?
Alex is looking much better! Scott needs to find a new shirt (love the blue but EVERY week!?) and I miss his ties!!
And she and Steve are going to have "issues" over her working for him. Can we not let the guy be happy in any aspect of his life? To steal a line from another blog "Steve shouldn't be dipping his quill in company ink". I agree.
Praying the writers and directors get their act together or I fear the third season could be the last.
While I liked this episode I agree with other reviewers who say it was predictable. Everyone called Shelburne as Steve's mom and as a mom I cannot think of any reason she's abandon her kids for over a decade. That makes me dislike her already. Glad Max made it thru (who ever really thought he'd die? Not me), knew Chin would pick the wife, (of course) and I see Adam on his big white boat coming to save Kono. Great way to redeem himself. And Rachel will stay in Hawaii or Danno will get custody, obviously. Sad to see Fryer go (he grew on me as well) but the Baldwin guy is a really good bad guy.
As for the season, I thought it was terribily uneven. Read a blog yesterday called "Why Hawaii Five O is So F--d Up"(google it) and had to agree with the guy. The writers have no direction was his main valid point. One week we'll try this girl with Steve, the next this one, the third they're bringing Catherine back. And speaking of, I have been reading she is going to be PART of the Five O team
This episode didn't live up to the hype; disappointing and very predictable. There were plot holes all over the place, and honestly nothing that happened shocked me. The episode before should have been the finale.
I've never really cared about the whole Shelburne thing, so its annoying to me that its still going to be an issue 3 seasons in. I can't bring myself to be excited about next season at all.
I think they will "rescue" Kono and Malia next season. If they want to cut someone from the show they would have done it in the final episode. They dont wait till the beginning of the season. But, having said that we probably wont hear much from Malia during the next season, not very different from what happened this season. I believe this is the first time Malia has shown up since the December wedding. Talking about Haoles, I think they said that Ms. Manning who plays Steve's sister in the show will be coming in sporadically next season.
"That being said, I stand by my earlier comment of seeing too many Haoles in important roles and I really hope that we see more Samoan or Hawaiian (looking) actors in positions of authority next season."
My sentiment exactly. As I had been hammering away when Lauren German was on the show and I felt that they were trying to phase out Grace Park. Glad she is gone to a whiter city of Chicago..where she will be one of the main actors in NBC's Chicago Fire. Black people complain about no minorities in the Bachelor Show...the fact is as you said there are way too many in Hawaii Five O which is set in an 80% Asian-Polynesian island. Although the current cast is a large step forward from Baywatch Hawaii where everyone was literally white (I think one was half-Asian), they can do better. However, they should retain the two main white actors...they are excellent and should retain the two Asian characters as well. Perhaps instead of starting a new show with Lucy Liu, they should have moved he
But they didn't show us who the mom was
Now that we know who Shellburne is I really hope this was the last time we saw Joe I am sick and tired of him playing with Steve's feelings.
I was happy we got Steve back last week and that the team was back together again. But this episode was really disappointed for me to much insane plot holes and it felt like they tried to put to much storylines in 45 min they had better show us a 2 hour finale in stead of this one!
Now the hiatus start maybe for the show a good thing I really hope next season will be beter then this one, for the writers I hope they use this time off to think of beter storyline's and working more on the details it was leaking much on this front this year.
