What a poignant and emotional episode I loved it! exactly what a true Thanksgiving celebration should be!
Seeing everyone playing football together was a perfect start for a Thankgiving episode, just as the game is tied Steve has to leave to put the turkey in the oven.
Danno was a bit jealous to see Grover on the football field and ask Steve why he was there Steve explains, is that Grover’s family is out of town and it’s Thanksgiving so he invited him for Thanksgiving. The whole football scene gave me a vipe of true OHANA!!
Aunt Deb arrives at McGarretts home and immediately you can see that Steve has more feelings and love for his aunt Deb then he ever showed for Doris. Aunt Deb is the clue who kept the family together.
The jail scene broke my heart when aunt Deb explains to Steve why she needed to buy some weed she tells Steve she has brain cancer Steve broke down and cried and realize that his aunt Deb came to Hawaii to say Goodbye to him and Mary...... I lost it and cried Both Carol and Alex where amazing kudo's to them.
I was glad to see that Steve send Cath to pick up his aunt from HPD what gaves us a nice scene at a beautiful place on the beach where Aunt Deb say to Cath I have a feeling you will be around here for a while will you promise me to keep Steve and Mary close which Cath promise of course.
In the mean time Steve ask Danny some brotherly advice of what he should do with his aunt Deb illness Danny gave him the best advice their is enjoy your last Thanksgiving and makes some lovely memories. This was one of the best McDanno scene I've ever seen in 4 seasons.
For me this Thanksgiving episode was all about family (Ohana) if it's your family by blood our your work Ohana this is the true meaning of Thanksgiving sharing it together and be there for each other. Wish we could see aunt Deb again but we don't
The crime case itself was good and I liked the twist of and ending but was secondary for me.
I loved that we can see how changed Steve characters really is from a cold men in season 1 to a men who shows his feelings in season 4.
I wish you all and your family's a very Happy Thanksgiving!

This comment is from another site and I quote:
(((This was the same ep that was filmed during this year's Sunset on the Beach premiere week; Scott was also absent from that. I've seen pics of him participating in a surfing clinic held by 1 of the charities he works with that teach the sport to kids/young people with various disabilities, & that clinic was in Southern California the last week of September, the same as this ep was filmed & Sunset on the Beach was held, so that's probably where Scott was.)))
And we know that Danny also won't appear in 4.13 and maybe another episode this season. Scott is working on a play which he write and produce so it's all for personal reasons that Danny is absence in some epsiodes this season. It's nice of Peter lenkov to allow Scott to do what he loves to do but on the otherhand with another main cast member being absent I don't think it was wise of him. And Scott sign a contract for several years I think he needs to think of the fans also.

It was an episode fulll of action and humor just Fantastic!!
Great to see the team helping Kono finding Adam they caught Sato very quick and I was happy to hear from him Adam was still alive!!
Steve and Grover- EPIC !! all around brilliant dialogue- and they worked very well off each other. Can't wait to see more about Chi his scene's with his daughter were cute reminds me of the bond Danny has with Gracie wonder what the reason is Grover moved to Hawaii
Speaking about Danny sorry Danny fans but I didn't missed Danny in this episode!
Finally we got to see Govenor Denning again loved that he calls Steve by his name in stead of Commander.
I thought the use of Catherine in the episode was very well done too. She did exactly what many of us were hoping she'd do. Manning the computer table and seeing her do what she does best, intel. Was cute how Chin called her Newbie.
Case of the week was interesting, for once no murder and it seems we have a new Villian for Five-O Ian is his name and Nick Jonas played him wonderful kudos to him
Still loving this season sofar the writing is great so as the storylines
People chill out first of all Peter can't don nothing about bringing Kono back Grace Park was on maternity leave while they shooting this episode back in September. Gosh!! actors have a private live too you know. Grace Park is already been seen back in Hawaii shooting some scene's be patience and be happy for Grace and her Husband with their little bundle of joy.
It wasn't Kono badge. Steve gave his badge to Catherine when they were in their bedroom.
Jim, it was indeed time to get back to the island and to our weekly review. Thanks for a great one!
The episode had his funny moments for sure Joan was adorable and I loved uncle Steve, uncle Chin and uncle Danny especially the last one Danny is a great storyteller the moment he tells Joan a story in his office about "Handsome Prince, Hairy Ogre and the Black Stallion". I immediately knew who he meant in this story it was hilarious and cute at the same time
No surprise Catherine's now a 5-0. saw that coming from the end of season 3. Cath fight scene was awesome she only had one scratch which I can't say for the guy she fighting with. but her finding everything about Sato on her own without any help from Five-O c'mon. Cath is not Superwoman.
Who in the world will allow Mary to adopt a baby with her background it wouldn't happen in the real world. I love Joan she was adorable but I didn't saw the purpose of this SL in this episode.
I like Captain Grover it's time someone put Steve on his place sometimes his arrogance go's to far.
Oh, and Fong is finally back…
Steve in a towel I can see every week Yum!!!
If that is the case they have to remove Hawaii Five-O from this site don't you think?
@jschoi.......... Cath said she was a mess ("Survior's guilt") at the end looks for me a good SL for Cath in stead of adding her on the team what many fans expect now will happen. Or Catherine can take over Billy agency an run that for a while.
Grace is coming back! to be exactly she was back on set today they shooting 4.11 now so we will see her before the winter break!
Hi, Mrs Cleaver I have ask October 20 Jim who wrote last year H5O reviews on twitter why we don't get any reviews anymore he would look into it for me but I still waiting for a answer! 4 weeks in a row without a review is ridiculous if there is nobody available to write one they could at least let us know.
