Henry Ian Cusick was the man who dropped his gun when you see the close up of the van after the firefight. He was the bloody face you saw just before McGarrett's chase. Speaking of that chase, the helicopter stunt was amazing. The scale and execution of that scene was movie worthy! I agree with @MaryEliza that I think the Wo Fat brothers idea we've all had and Steve has is a red herring. I recall Peter Lenkov saying that it's not going to be something that everyone has been expecting. I hope they aren't brothers, and I hope the writers have come up with a great twist to get around that idea.
There's a four month time jump because all shows have a real time four month time jump between season finale and season premiere. I don't think the two would be linked. I thought Deek's monologue with Kensi at the end was amazing, such a powerful moment. That was by far one of my favourite Deeks/Kensi scenes.
As much as this series could have continued successfully for a while longer, I fear this is the downfall for the series. It's a shame to see her go.
Five-0 always delivers on the finale, this one I believe could have been better if there weren't so many subplots running at the same time. I could take the Kono, Wo Fat/Doris, terrorist story lines but Fong getting stabbed and the unnecessary scenes I think took away from the impact that they each deserved. It felt as if they were trying to cover too many topics so each cliff hanger or shock moment wasn't delivered with as much impact as possible. I'm really keen to see what happens with Kono, I'm sure she'll be back I just hope they don't draft Catherine in as a replacement, that will make the Cath haters go crazy. As for Wo Fat, I just hope we get one or two clues as to the Doris story line in the season premiere.
I doubt someone will die, the press releases say that Kono is on the run for a murder she didn't commit. I believe the governor will fire her or order Steve to drop her from the task force while she's a fugitive, thus becoming a team of 3.
I won't comment too much on this episode, while it did set up some good cliffhangers for the finale, it wasn't as amazing as I hoped the second last episode would be. If the the last two seasons are anything to go by, we should be expecting a shocking, large scale finish right up until the last scene. I just hope we aren't let down.
@WIlliam E. Bruce, I believe Alex had his hair cut for episode 3.20, for his scenes training as a Navy SEAL.
@Walter, I also was amazed at such the small possibility of this episode airing the day those three girls were found after 10 years. Of course we can't really say it was ripped from the headlines but it does mirror Gabrielle's discussion of the realism of the case.
Wow, just wow. That was an amazing episode. I say I like all episodes because I am a loyal fan, but that was seriously so tense and well written my heart was still racing all the way to the end credits. The scene where Steve asks for Danny's badge then walks out was incredibly well done. I'm glad to see the Adam/Kono story line come back, my only downside to this episode was the ignoring of the major plot twist of last episode, there wasn't even the smallest reference to Wo Fat. That's one of the little things people use to compare with the first season, once upon a time something like that would have been referenced even if it was just one line.
I too noticed some inconsistencies like when Steve and Freddie were talking for ages while still getting shot at, but as with this and many other things in all episode you just have to cast them aside in order to have an enjoyable hour of television. Fantastic episode, even I shed a tear at the end.
