Hawaii Five-O > Hawaii Five-0 Review: Welcome Home Steve > Comments Page 2
@HFO - I saw that spoiler w/shirtless Chin - all I can say is it's about time!!
I think Max gets shot but not killed. I was leaning towards Joe dying but the more I think about it, I now feel that Fryer will die. Joe/WoFat/Shelburne are all tied together and until the Shelburne aspect is cleared up, Joe will be around.
@hunny_bee1 - Kono can hold her own. You can't help who you fall for. I think this relationship, which seems like it came outta left field, would have been better explained and cleared up had the 24th epi been included. We'll know more next season.
We're all going to be in for a great, big Coney Island Cyclone roller coaster ride. It's going to be a very long, hot summer. Sigh...
@martinelli, OKay i've registered just for you haha! Any features i should know about?

Still rooting for McKono! I'm not a huge fan of Adam, anyways."
Me too, X!
I don't think Max is the one going to die. It would be too obvious. I still think it will be Joe. More angst for Steve. I'm not usually into relationships but I adore Kono/Adam. Adam is becoming one of my fav characters on the show. I hope they explore the characters more next year. I don't feel we really got any character exploration this year at all. I think Kono/Adam could give us a lot more insight into Kono and Cath coming back full time will also give us an opportunity to see another side of Steve and hopefully more of his background.
I hope they do something more with Danny next season than whine at Steve or family angst. The CIA storyline was good for him, but it felt a bit too convenient having the CIA agent hand up all the info on a plate.
@HFO - You should register here and log in :) I would like that.
Agree with Ivory. I think the whole premise of Adam, being born into Yakuza and to a certain the reluctant leader with a silent desire to turn things around yet bounded by the Yakuza rules and then facing an added dilemma of falling in love with a cop (an 'enemy') is indeed an interesting story for the writers to explore. Kono and Adam FTW!
I am a McKono shipper, but that seems to be almost impossible or at least not in the near horizon, thus would not mind exploring more of the Adam and Kono storyline. It's definitely goldmine for a story line there!
More Adam and Kono storyline please!!!!
Still rooting for McKono! I'm not a huge fan of Adam, anyways.
Extended promo came out and we saw Malia. From this i'm assuming she'll be the doctor that treats Max, becos *SPOILER ALERT* she says "max's lost alot of blood". SHIRTLESS CHIN WOOT
Given that Adam then almost shot her, then ended up tying her up & effectively leaving her for dead, all the while trying to capture & kill Wo Fat, I really don't see how this relationship is ever going to work out in the long-term. Even though she would seemingly be willing to forgive him, I don't believe the relationship would ever be fully accepted by Chin, Steve & Danny (especially Steve - given the Yakuza's alleged ties to his parents' murders). Chin clearly disapproved, but then they didn't really have the chance to discuss it properly in the episode.
Yes, Adam may not be as shady as his dad, and he may turn out to be a 'good guy' at heart, but the fact still remains that he is very much involved in criminal activity. As for Kono, call me cold-hearted, but I honestly have very little sympathy for her predicament; she knew exactly who she was getting involved with, so her tearful "we can't even go out to dinner" (as said to Adam in the hotel) doesn't wash with me. A police officer going out with a Mafia boss? Talk about conflicts of interest. It's got 'happy ending' written all over it, doesn't it?
Thoroughly enjoyed the episode - it's probably my favourite one of the season so far. It was great to have Alex back, looking so much fitter and healthier. The fight scenes between him and Mark Dacascos were brilliant, almost 'matrix-like'.
I also really enjoyed Danny's scenes with the CIA guys; he totally held his own and it made me love him even more!
However, the Kono/Adam storyline really bothered me. Firstly, the way it happened seemed really sudden - there was no build-up, or explanation as to how/when they even met.
Secondly, whilst I agree they had real chemistry & made a cute couple, am I the only one who doesn't support this relationship? Of all the guys the writers could've set her up with, they went for the one who's the head of the Yakuza - the Japanese Mafia, no less! - and is therefore no stranger to (and has clearly has no problem with) breaking the law to get what he wants.
"turretgunner May 8th, 2012 12:49 PM I thought this was a great episode and like many, i really enjoyed watching Steve kick Wofat's ass. But I have to disagree about all the positive remarks about Adam and Kono's relationship. She's a cop working on a special forces team for the Govenor of Hawaii and she's dating a know criminal? Maybe Adam is sincere about wanting his operations to become legit, but as he himself told Kono, that's going to take time. So she's dating a crook who was involved in an attempted abduction of a federal prisoner that left at least one innocent person dead on the plane and could have resulted in her boss getting killed as well. Now I believe Adam didn't sanction the execution of the CIA agent, but that situations showed he wasn't in control of his own men, which isn't good either. So while I know most relationships on TV shows are evaluated according to how they grade on the hotness scale, I guess I tend to go with something a little more substantial than "O
I am glad Alex is back and I don't believe mondays show was filmed before he went to rehab, as he look like crap before he went and he looks really good now. I don't think Max gets killed, just shot as he call the guys to come see something, which I think is a body. There has been no word that any of the core four are leaving. I think it is Kono in the water but can't tell if she has anything on her to weigh her down and we don't know if she was unconscious when she goes into the water. She maybe able to excape if she is just bound by her hands. I think the very end when they were all giving Steve hugs and he ask Did you miss me? Wonder if he was asking did they miss Steve or miss Alex. I hope Shelbourne isn't his mother as that would just wipe him out. Glad Alex had his stuntman do more for him than he allowed before. It went so fast I didn't pick up that you saw more of the stuntmans face. Will have to re=watch it.
I've really been loosing interest in the show lately, but now that Alex is back to his healthy energetic self and Steve is back to his amazing kick ass self, I'm beginning to fall in love with the show again. If only the episodes could remain as good as this one. Great news about Adam/Kono returning and I'm so excited that Cath will be a full time team member. I'm beginning to feel more optimistic about season three.
@HFO....Wonder if Chin will still walk her down the aisle, my guess is yes. Reminds me just slightly about the Border good guy with father issues.
@kaydee, I think it's pretty safe to assume that Kono is safe. I remember a while back when we first heard someone would die, Lenkov tweeted "Relax... Fasten your seatbelts it's gonna be a fun ride." I don't think if one of the core four died, he would be saying that. I can't believe I already ship Adam/Kono but they're just so adorbs!!
My theory Adam will turn good for Kono, and who knows, maybe she'll be the cop that marries the head of the Yakuza.
I think it was the best episode yet! Alex looked really great healthy and his skin color is back to normal lol I love the Kono/Adam story I think they should keep Ian on as a regular Kono needs a love life too and why not a bad boy to keep things spiced up! Wo Fat always gets away his story isn't done and I love Mark as Wo Fat he plays the part well! All these great looking actors on one show is awesome! We all know or should know that Steve,Danno,Kono and Chin will live! I believe it will be Max that dies :( anyhow, wonderful episode! Sad the finale is coming I guess I will watch re runs all summer until September I live for my Monday H5O!!!
@HFO - that's great news! Kono & Adam in season 3!! YES - Kono's fine, phew!!! @martinelli - we'll have to wait and see if Adam's free. I think Kono can turn him around. Zia's right - if you received your father's body parts, you'd go dark too. I know I would.
@Walter - you're right, it's a long wait till September. Sigh....
Most probably becos this fan tweeted Lenkov asking him for more Adam/Kono and he was like "If you insist." Which i interpret as a cryptic answer to YES THERE WILL BE MORE TO COME.
I support this relationship, i love it when bad guys turn good for the women they love ahha. I love it how Steve had that "WTF IS GOING ON WITH THOSE TWO" face going on, funny
@HFO - ... and Adam is going to be free, is it?
I would love to see them together.
YESSS Peter Lenkov confirmed we will see more of *SPOILER ALERTTTTT* Adam/Kono next season!!, which pretty much confirms Kono will live YESSSS
@Clarence Spencer: Each character has their own "looks", which I assume you mean "facial expressions". If you condemn one person, you have to condemn them all. McGarrett is a bad-ass character and Alex portrays him well, in every aspect. Hawaii Five-0 will not be leaving because of Alex's "looks".
I had mentioned before that I thought perhaps Adam told them to bring Wofat back, but the guy that was shot by Kono, overruled him somehow, and had them try to kill both Steve and Wofat. Adam wanted Wofat back to torture him for killing Hiro. That's why all the plastic on the floor and the single chair. If Adam tried to kill Steve, then I say throw away the key, but if he did not, then maybe he is not as bad as we think. I'm not saying he is an angel, but getting body parts of your father in the mail would probably make anyone go to the dark side. If he is really trying to go legit, then I think Kono and Adam would make a great couple and I hope they continue this story line.
Great episode, glad to see Steve back the fight scene with WoFat was awesome.I hope these next 4 months go fast, can't wait for season 4 to start.
