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!
He was at his book signing in LA.
I enjoyed this epi a lot. It had a White Collar flare to it (love, love Mozzie) as well as some Thomas Crown Affair! It was well written with just the right amount of intrigue (and some great music as well) to keep you guessing. Sorry but I didn't miss Danny at all - it was an enjoyable snark and sarcasm free epi (Scott was at his book signing in LA) and it seemed that everyone had a good time with this one. Chin and Kono were excellent and and I loved that Chin wore Vincent's glasses - epic move on the writers part. And we finally got some much needed McGrover time. How Jerry got to be so tech savvy is another story but at least he's not annoying like Pua and helped save the day. I didn't feel any chemistry between Steve and Nicole at all though. All in all a great episode which is definitely re-watch worthy. 2 great ones in a row! Can't wait for next week!
I think Harry would be a nice asset on occasion! I wasn't a Cath fan but also feel it's way to soon for a relationship, even just as friends. I'm on the fence with Ellie but have a feeling tptb are making her into a female Steve, boxing, fishing, fixing cars. Not to say women don't enjoy these pastimes but... I'd love to see a girly girl on 5-0, manis/pedis, spas/massages, haircuts, SHOPPING! The antithesis of all the high-flying testosterone! I'm sure she would be a welcomed diversion for Steve!
I enjoyed this episode. Steve was front and center and was Steve, not the silly caricature that the writers have been making him into lately. The writers did a great job (even though the cast of characters was large enough to rival a Hollywood epic) and hope they stay this course. I like Ellie but hope they don't force a relationship between them - you know, once bitten, twice shy. I liked the VoiceOver - I miss Moonlight and Mick desperately - and hope they bring back Harry - he was a great asset to them. 2 more new episodes to come, hope they're as good as this one!
I guess we'll need to add Michael to the ever-growing cast of recurring characters. At least he's nice to look at! Hopefully he can replace Pua - who's character has grown old, tiring and obnoxious quickly.
Very emotional episode though I think I've had enough of Steve being tortured. It was very hard to watch. Alex completely owned this epi - brilliant acting on his part. His tear-filled eyes and his voice breaking when Danny told him that his dead has been dead for 4 years. I cried with him. Isn't it funny how Doris's mothering skills produced such very different results. One as low, base and despicable as herself and the other a caring, loving, upstanding man. Her actions ruined 4 peoples lives. 2 dead because of her lack of foresight. Steve had to kill WoFat in order to finally get the closure and peace he so deserves. It was either kill or be killed. How fitting for Danny and Chin to help Steve and Kono and Lou pro protect him. Kudos to the crew for an excellent episode and to the cast for outstanding acting. The montage and the song were a perfect ending for such a phenomenal episode.
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.
