I enjoyed this episode a lot. Very different than the usual shoot-em-up COTW. Excellent acting by Alex, who's sorely underrated in the industry. Slowly, Steve is getting some much need closure. There's a lot of hype swirling around Ellie. They did seem intrigued with each other and actually had chemistry. Kindred spirits, they both had something to offer the other. Will she become something more than a friend? Maybe, hopefully. Done right, I think it'd work. What I like most about the show is the ohana feeling. And it was there in spades! I was very happy to see the team rally round Steve and help him.
It was ok. 3 episodes in and I'm still waiting for the team feel to kick in. I like Grover but in a regular role he's blah. Jerry is already wearing out his welcome. And as long as Danny's brother goes away forever after this long, boring, dragged out storyline I can almost ignore it. There are so many people and storylines that I'm losing interest rapidly. It's way to convoluted. It always nice to see Kono be a badass, but what happened to Chin? And really, Steve the braun and Danny the brains. Don't think so. Without McG there is no H50. Really wish the writing was as consistent as with NCIS and Blue Bloods. It's early and I'm still hoping and praying for a major comeback. This is not the show that I fell in love with.
I enjoyed this episode. It had a definite s1 feel to it which gives me a lot of hope for a great s5! I agree with your points. Poor Jason, he broke my heart too. Given good writing, these guys shine and Alex and Scott shone brightly. It's so refreshing to see Scott act instead of whine (I know it's how he's written, but 5 seasons in, it's worn thin). I do wish they'd use Daniel and Grace for meatier scenes, but the season is young! All-in-all a very good episode.
It was a very good episode. Lots of growth for all the characters. I love the fact that Danny is a bit jealous of the growing relationship between Steve and Grover. Don't worry Danno, you'll always be 1st in Steve's life!! I started in tears and ended in tears! Uncle Steve hugs and Kono hugs!! After what seemed like forever, the team is back and the ohana was thru the roof! Love this show!
@Michelle - Catherine didn't "quit" the Navy. Like Steve, she retired. They don't give award ceremonies to "quitters". I hope your child doesn't decide to retire without first getting your permission because you'll probably beat him/her to death because you won't have anything to admire.
Loved the episode though it was way more violent than any other one. So happy that the ohana feeling has returned. It was a very long summer w/out Steve and the gang! I'm hoping for more appearances by Chi - Grover will def keep Steve on his toes!! I think the new night works well and I'm looking forward to an action-packed season and hopefully answers to lots of questions!! Keep up,the great work PL and team!! I'm a fan for life!!
Excelllent episode. Very emotional and powerful. Alex and Scott both rocked it. Whoever doesn't think Alex is a good actor should watch this episode. His emotions were conveyed very clearly without a word and with every blink and grimace. When the team works together it is purely magical. And last night was no exception. This season has been up and down and I'm hoping that the next 2, and sadly last episodes, are just as great so we can end the season on a high note.
Not a great epi - more like an epic fail. Can't like them all. There were some cool moments, Max being a fanboy all adorable, Kamekono's product placement and What's A Fong?? but not enough to keep the interest. I don't understand H50's ranting and raving about guest stars - Aisha was over the top, loud and annoying (just like on her talk show). Maybe TPTB should invest more in sticking to the tried and true (think NCIS) and better advertising to help shore up the very poor ratings. The best scene - Steve at the end, looking at Wo Fat and probably thinking wouldda, couldda, shouldda. Agree w/jschoi - they need to get that s1 feeling back otherwise there's not going to be a season 5.
Very compelling episode. Gave me a lot of insight into Steve. Alex's portrayal last night was EPIC - emotional, kickass, friend, mentor - he knocked it out of the park. Catherine matched him step-for-step. She was with him because she's his lover, his friend and knows him the best and she's military and it wasn't supposed to turn into a war. A lot was said with little words and big action. The fact that the team showed up at the end was PRICELESS. Ohana at its best. I would want Steve behind me in everything I do - his love and loyalty is remarkable; he's a man of honor and courage and he carries out the strength of his convictions. HOO RAH.
Phenomenal episode. Shemar was excellent. The story was well written and very well acted. As for Buford: #1 finding "religion" was a sham, he used it as a coverup for his own protection which was very evident at the end; and #2 his dying doesn't change anything for Derek. You can move on from the past but the ghosts never really go away. Powerful and compelling storyline. It moved me to tears.
