More beefing about Catherine, get over it. She is Steve's girlfriend, she has Navy connections, and she is where she is suppose to be. Of course there are going to be bikini shots, there are shirtless shots of the guys that not too many people complain about. Nice double standard.
Awesome episode, loved every moment. Danny's background, and the 9/11 tie in, was just right. I love it when Scott gets to show his acting skills, and both he and Alex were wonderful. Tears in my eyes when the bomb was dismantled and the nervous laugh from both of them. Danny is who he is, with all that has happened to him, I think some nagging is expected from him. I love watching Danny interact with his daughter, I know fathers like this, and I am so glad they exist. There are a lot of good men out there. Love this season so far.
I loved this episode. It's in my top three for the whole series. The action, the pacing, the tension, the story were all awesome. I loved learning more about Danny, who is by far my favorite. The acting was stellar, it just shows what the show can be when the writers give the actors something to work with.
The closing scenes with Steve and Danny were amazing, and the father/ daughter dance with Grace may be my favorite scene of the whole series. Loved seeing how Grace got her name, and how much she is like her father, all heart.
I also loved the balance between flashback and present case, and how the 9/11 reference was handled. Just a spectacular episode all around. Loved, loved, loved every minute of it.
Fantastic episode! Top three of all time. Great character moments from the team at the beginning to the epic Steve/Danny at the end. Well written and paced show, loved the flashbacks and "Heartbreaker" at the beginning. Nice Grace moments too. The bomb scene, the flashbacks with the 9/11 tie in were riveting and packed an emotional punch. The hug felt so real and the emotion from both Scott and Alex was perfect. Awesome job!
Two beefs, minor, are the gratuitous cheesecake shot of Cath in the bikini and then her using the Navy, while on leave, to get info that anyone on the team should have been able to get through Homeland Security. Also, Cath showing up at the crime scene and walking into the house with the team was totally unnecessary and unprofessional. Each week a different way to stick her in an ep. I love Grace and the Daddy/daughter moments, but I would really love to see Danny have a storyline outside of the custody/Rachel box the writers have put him in. Again,
Just an additional comment about a comment made that everyone on this site, does not like Catherine. I love Catherine, I think they are bringing her along the way she should be, and that Steve deserves a girlfriend, someone who can be strong and help him out.
When Catherine is in the episode a lot people complain, when she is barely there they complain that she has no purpose. I know people have a right to their opinions, but seriously, give the woman a break. The actress is great, the writing for her is great, and the character is exactly what someone like McG needs. Great episode.
Just another thing I would like to add from my first comment, I thought it was a bit unprofessional when Steve ripped apart the wall full of evidence to get to the C4 on the other side. I understand the urgency, but it was just something that annoyed me, maybe they had already photographed the scene.
I apologize! I thought my first comment had disappeared into the nether world, so I rewrote it and when I submitted it, whoops, there was the first one! Is there a way to delete or edit a comment? I would be happy to get rid of one of these!
May I please have 10 stars to click on, Jim? This was my very favorite episode of the series so far, right up there with S2's 2.10 (North Korea). I think its' safe to say Scott Caan put any lingering doubters as to his acting chops, out to dry with his portrayal of Danny Williams in this episode. The "Danny" backstory - what makes him who he is - is something that has been lacking up to this point. We now know WHY Danny is always harping on Steve to call for back up, WHY Gracie is named Grace, and WHY he really doesn't mind Steve always driving his car! We absolutely need more of this kind of story - characterization with a crime of the week thrown in to advance said characterizations. Loved it all.
I'm going to have to take it up a notch and say in my mind's eye, this was the best episode since the Pilot - right up there as a tie with S2's North Korea ep I might be a huge Danny fan, but I have to say it wasn't just Scott's game - everyone in front of, and behind the cameras, brought their A game. From Teillor Wily through Masi Oka, and on to Terrence Howard and T.I. - superb acting. The story was intelligently, reverently written, the flashbacks and editing easy to follow and made for increased intensity. I felt every possible emotion. May I please have 10 stars to click on? Ihave now talked myself in this being my favorite episode of the series!
Definitely the best episode they've had in awhile. Loved the Steve/Danno rapport. Still not seeing how Catherine fits in. They have her on R&R from active duty so that they can explain why she's always around, but yet, they still have her using her job as a way to help with the cases. If she's on leave, she wouldn't be able to just access all that intel! I loved her as Steve's girlfriend in the occasional episode, but they should leave it at that.
This ep. was the best ever. I am a huge H5O fan. I like everyone of them. They keep you guessing all the time. Catherine is not in enough to even put a dent into the show. People are except to have relationships, even commanders. If you were listening she is on LEAVE, so why would she not be by the pool? If your really paying attention to the show it gives you clues to wh
ere the story lines are going, and there doing a fantastic job. I adore Max. Hes smart, and very funny, which if I worked as a corner I'd hope I'd have a sense of humor. And theres more to come Chin and Kono. We can't put everything into one ep. theres not enough time, and Castle has gotten very predictable, rather boring.
I thought this was the best episode so,far this season. We learned what makes Danny Danny. Funny that Danny had/has 2 partners who love to drive his car!! The guest stars weren't overplayed, even the trash family Kardashian kid was good. Both Terence and TI made excellent drug lords. Flashback episodes can be confusing but this one flowed perfectly. Kudos to the writers for keeping the 9/11 scene sacred - I'm a 9/11 survivor and it was handled beautifully. What a beautiful testament to his former partner that Danny named his daughter for her. Chin and Kono were actually present and had input and even teased Danny! Max even contributed! Both Alex and Scott acted their hearts out - its amazing what can be said, or not, just through looks. Bravo to everyone involved in this episode, actors, writers, for creating an excellent show. Hopefully this caliber of writing will remain for evermore. This is the show that I fell in love with. Keep up the good work! Love, love, loved it!!
I caught that too, but my comment on Grace driving Danny's car in NJ didn't survive my editing process :P
Enjoyed the show. I, too, like the Danny centric episodes. Loved the opening scene with Danno & Grace shopping. Also liked that it was Max that mentioned the store to Danny on the recommendation of his (Max's) niece. The closing scene was excellent as well, I thought Danny danced very well in spite of the rest of Five-o's comments. As far as the Steve/Danny bomb scene, it was great. I liked that they showed the way that Steve really does care for Danny. Were those unshed tears in the eyes of "Super Seal" as he watched Danno walk away?
i LOVE danny...and i LOVE the back and forth between danny and steve....YES, he's been in hawaii awhile now, and MOST would think it's time to STOP complaining about the island and such.....it was fun to realize, that this wasn't the first danny's first partner who always drives HIS car....lol.
it was a SUPER eppy....i LOVED IT....even though, i missed the last few minutes.....as for both FIVE-0 & BONES have 911 eppies the same night: you have to remember, FIVE-0 is a week behind ....due to the storm on halloween....that is WHY we had halloween eppy, last week.
we need to see more of danny's past from his days on the new jersey police force/hawaii five-o current job. kudos to a great episode welldone &finely executed!! alex,dan grace&scott &michelle&sydney&christine!!great job !!take a bow!! we need to see what other secrets doris has in her secret skeleton closet that are lurking in dark hiding places11
All in all, a great episode. I am not sure what the ratings looks like, but I do hope they can keep up this quality. Next week looks interesting. Looking forward to Mary's return and seeing what kind of mess Kono seems to be in...should be good.
I really enjoyed this episode. It was Scott's night to shine and he really did. I thought Alex, Grace and Daniel also played their roles very, very well this time. These flashback episodes aren't my favorite, so I wouldn't want that format a lot, but what I thought was really key to the success of this one was that the character story took precedent over the procedural. They didnt abandon the crime story, but it wasn't primary - this may be the better balance for the show. Now, if they spread the character stuff out to the other three, I would be thrilled. But, I thought what we did get of the Ohana (while time-limited) felt very genuine and substantial. Max was interesting, too and plays a key role. Catherine? Honestly (and this is just my opinion), Ive gone from interested to confused to disinterested to annoyed. I guess as long as they dont add her to the team and keep her time minimal (like Max), I can deal with her. I have a feeling that is not where this is going, though. All in
I loved this episode, although I found it a little odd that both Hawaii 5-0 and Bones had September 11 episodes on the same night in November. Both of them handled the subject very well. I can understand Danny's rant about his daughter growing up in a world where you can't get on an airplane without being searched. And out of all the members of 5-0, I would expect Danny to be the most emotional about terrorists, even before knowing his connection to September 11. For Steve it was his job, for Danny he was near the tragedy. The only part of this episode that bugged me was Catherine. While I find her a major improvement over last season's Lori, I agree with everyone else on here that he job/role in this show makes no sense. They could have easily have gotten that information without her. Plus we never actually see her work anymore. She's either lounging at the pool/with Steve or helping 5-0.
I liked this show very much. It was different and also made you cry. I least made me cry. Danny and Grace dancing was a delight.
Terrific episode. One of the best. Is Catherine really in the Navy? Lounging at the pool-the Hilton no less. Driving a Vette? Great duty if you can get it. No real change in the ratings. 7.7 million viewers compared to 10.7 for Castle and 7.1 for Revolution.
Wow, two episodes tying in 9/11 in one night, Bones and 5-0. It was a better episode than we've seen lately, Danno not whinning for a change was great. I really do like Cann as an actor. The way his character was being a smart ass when interrogated by the outlaws was super, but I knew his partner would be killed. Then to reveal it was 9/11 that saved his life. Oh, shooting the guy who shot his partner, though he well have been dead already, was a nice touch. Yet the father daughter dance was so great, brought back memories from years ago with one of my girl.
I love that shows like this one nowadays don't have a problem showing two men loving and caring about each other as friends and having the kind of relationship where they can hug each other and express their feelings.That scene was great.
The glimpse into Danny's past was fantastic.Especially learning how Grace got her name,and the tie-in to 9/11.Terrance Howard was really intense and scary,wasn't he? Love him.
I love seeing Danny as the doting daddy,and was so glad he made the dance.I would've hated him missing something yet again.
Quick question:Was that the real DOD at the dedication?
I've got this uneasy feeling that they're going to phase out Grace park and replace her with Michele Borth. Kono has less and less screen time which is pretty sad as what she could bring to the show is mostly ignored. If there is no Kono, the show is doomed...
I think my favorite character nowadays is Danny. I really like Scott Caan and frankly am kind of sick if Alex O and what he brings to his character. I would love to see more of Chin and Kono too.
