It was an excellent episode. Learning that her mom suffered an aneurysm and was still able to share in her journey was very touching. Both the young and older Kono actress' did a great job. Watching Kono take care of herself only solidified for me her inner strength. I also loved learning about the Hawaiian traditions. Seeing the team rally round her in the beginning was one of the many things that made me fall in love with this show that true ohana spirit. I'm glad she was able to save herself (with some help from moms will) with only lots of worry from Steve and Chin! The COTW was sad. What a hard-hearted, unforgiving son he was. I guess Carter got what he deserved. After last weeks awful debacle, this episode was well written and acted by all involved.

I enjoyed the episode a lot. Chi's acting was awesome and, like Alex, he's capable of saying so much without uttering a word. I enjoyed the fact there wasn't a single gunshot fired and we got to learn more about Lou and Renee. The beginning of this season wasn't memorable but it has picked up. We're getting to see slightly different aspects of the show instead of the usual shoot-em-ups. I think the team dynamic is fine, I'm actually liking Steve with Lou more than with Danny - maybe Danny's meanness towards Steve will ease and things will go back to the way they were. I do hope the show gets picked up for a few more seasons because I simply adore Alex.

It was an excellent episode - seeing Steve front and center and in full SEAL mode is always a treat. Having emotional Steve is an added pleasure. No one does emotion like Alex. Jerry's storyline was a much needed break from the Armenian vampire. The main storyline was a bit over the top, but it's tv, so poetic license is a given. Realistically I'm sure what took place is not a usual occurrence but, who knows, in large communities of immigrants it might happen because of fear of law enforcement retribution, which is a reason they left home in the first place. I do hope Michael makes a reappearance - he has a great chemistry with Alex and would be a welcomed addition to the team. Steve needs a safe haven and a non-judgemental ear to listen! Btw, I don't take my cell w/me all the time either. As for Scott, truthfully I didn't miss him. I do like Danny and the McDanno dynamic but not this season. Danny's way to mean and nasty to Steve. Maybe after his run-in with a Colombian jail he might return to the snarky, funny Danno of old. Hope so. On a realistic front, glad he's able to spend time with his daughter. This season started off a bit slow with a few clunkers but has made a nice turn around. Now, if we can get a renewal notice it'd be perfect!

Since you don't have a nice word to say about the show why do you waste your time and ours watching then pissing and moaning about how bad it is. Go watch something else and bother those people.

I really loved the episode. Alex/Steve once again proved why he's the leader! He comforted Kono and Gracie and was able to get the bad guys! I don't think I started to breathe again until the end! Kudos to Larry Teng, he'll definitely be missed. His episodes are always sit-on-the-edge-of-your-seat good. Like most, I wish it was either 2 hrs. or a to-be-continued episode but I was thrilled that the writers were able to pull it off with such an ending that begs for continuation!! I'm one who believes that Gabriel will be the new WoFat - he has the same suavely, sinister traits! Boy did I cheer for him when he killed that low-life Coughlin. I'm sure Gabriel will make Chin's life interesting and, by proxy, Steve's. And oh, yay for Ellie for helping the team in her sporty Audi!! Lou and Frank were so funny! I do wish we were able to see the take over of the factory and the burning of the drugs! I have to admit I'm glad I did all my "indiscretions" before they were able to live in infamy on the internet!! One thing. Would it have killed Danny to thank Steve for saving him, Danny, Danny.... So Mommie Dearest actually did a selfless act, with no return favors, YET, for Steve. I think he was even amazed that she stepped up to the plate to help. I don't like her and don't trust Joe but when he's not being sneaky, he and Steve make a great team! I can't wait to see what else is in store for us!

I thought Daniel did a great job directing. I'm hoping now that therapy is over and Danny bought Steve a guitar and Steve let Danny drive, the meanness and snark on Danny's part will lessen and he'll stop calling Steve names and things will go back the usual fun carguments of old. I know if my friend kept calling me an animal and a putz, to name just a few, they wouldn't be my friend for much longer. The COTW was inane and the bad guy in full Robo-Cop gear was way too much but seeing Kono get all bada$$ is, to quote Kamekono, "a piece of resistance!!" Jerry knew Ruth was lonely since before he found a family with 50, he was too and it was easy for him to see thru her. Takes one to know one. I did enjoy the ending I always love seeing the team together and the last song was perfect because, hopefully, The Boys are Back in Town!

Kudos to the writers for giving us another high octane, sit-on-the-edge-of-your-seat episode. From the opening watching Dekker get shot to the ending seeing Kono shocking Roman to death it was thrilling roller-coaster ride of emotions. We haven't seen bada$$ Kono in a while! I had my doubts in the beginning that Kono and Adam would make it but I'm very happy they're going to make a go of it. I thought it was very sweet watching both Dekker and Jerry giving her relationship advice! Here's hoping nothing happens to either of them and we finally have a happy ending for one of our beloved Ohana. A happy couple on 50! Now wouldn't that be A Kick In the Head!! LOL! I was impressed that they actually mentioned Danny's absence since they don't usually say why a team member is missing. Unfortunately, I didn't miss him. His extreme nastiness this season towards Steve is annoying and growing old. The episode seemed very light (despite the storyline) without him there. I readily admit to being a die-hard Alex O'Loughlin fan and wouldn't watch the show if Alex left, but if Scott left, well... Chi fits the show like a glove and could easily fill some absent shoes. I also like Jeff Morrison - he works well with Steve and the team and I could see him as an addition. Can't wait to see what tptb have in store for us going forward!

I don't trust Joe, never did and nor does Steve. There's a part of me that wouldn't be surprised if we found out the Joe was Steve's father and, hence, the secretive plotting to keep Steve from ever finding out the truth. I hope Steve gets the answers he so needs and deserves to help him heal physically and emotionally. As terrorists go, I think they were rather stupid. Really, what purpose does it serve to kill everyone off or maybe they didn't realize they'd be dead too. Either way there'd be no one left to torment. Good thing we have Steve to do away with the bad and the idiotic of this world! Seriously, it was a very good episode! It was high octane, a good story and fun. I enjoyed watching Steve go into full-blown "Steve the Seal" mode - it's been a while since we've seen him like that. I miss him! I think Lou has a new found appreciation of Steve's commitment after seeing Joe in action! I hope tptb continue this storyline and give it a decent burial.

I enjoyed the epi a lot. The COTW was very sad, the poor dr was just an innocent victim - no good deed goes unpunished. What goes around comes around and the warden and guard both got their punishment. I loved that science Steve was back!! I also love theft that Nahele will be back and Steve will get a chance to help fix another broken toy (and may start fixing himself too!) And Danny was back. The snark was back. I wish they'd tone it down, it's very old after 4+ seasons and not funny. He did somewhat redeem himself at the end with his half-baked cookie comment but we need way more of the nice. Great seeing the team working together we need more of that too!
