I thought the episode was very good. Very season 1!! I'm not a mom fame nor a Mary fan, for me Shelly Berman saved the day. The ending was ok, made better by seeing Steve's smile as a closing shot. Please, please put this ridiculous arc to bed once and for all. It's sucking the life from the show. Kono was fantastic as kickass, mom protector! Seeing Chin in overprotective mode with Kono made me melt. SuperSeal BAMF Steve needs no explanation and Danny even got to drive his own car. Appearances by Duke and Charlie made the core4 complete. I love Cath, but she wasn't needed in this episode, hope to,see her soon! Looking forward to more stories of this caliber. Keep up,the good work. This is looking more like the show I fell in love with.
I thought this was the best episode so,far this season. We learned what makes Danny Danny. Funny that Danny had/has 2 partners who love to drive his car!! The guest stars weren't overplayed, even the trash family Kardashian kid was good. Both Terence and TI made excellent drug lords. Flashback episodes can be confusing but this one flowed perfectly. Kudos to the writers for keeping the 9/11 scene sacred - I'm a 9/11 survivor and it was handled beautifully. What a beautiful testament to his former partner that Danny named his daughter for her. Chin and Kono were actually present and had input and even teased Danny! Max even contributed! Both Alex and Scott acted their hearts out - its amazing what can be said, or not, just through looks. Bravo to everyone involved in this episode, actors, writers, for creating an excellent show. Hopefully this caliber of writing will remain for evermore. This is the show that I fell in love with. Keep up the good work! Love, love, loved it!!
Not the worst epi and not the best. I will admit to having my brain turn to mush watching Steve caress Cath's arm and leg during the makeout scene. I love Cath and would like to see her put to better use other than as a babysitter for mommy dearest and for Gracie, who's turning into the most adorable 'tween ever! The plot was a little gory, with not much substance or believability. I think had we known the whys and hows of Granny/Seth it would have been better. What was truly lacking was Chin and Kono. I hope they start using them more. The ending was perfect! I just love that new modern family!!!
I'm a little late to the forum but here's my 2 cents anyway! IMO it was an ok epi - I found it a bit confusing, mutilation, kidnapping, decapitation, horse doping, a very phony medium, affairs!!! My head was spinning to realize it was old-fashioned revenge. Watching the different match ups each week is fine. Each character adds to and shows off the others strengths and weaknesses. I love the addition of Catherine, just the right amount of love for Steve and friendship for the team. Who I don't like is Doris. She's annoying and condescending. I dont think she ever loved her kids and dont understand the pretend show of affection. When she found the hidden microfilm I was so hoping for WoFat to be there, kidnap her and end this awful, drawn out life-sucking Shelburne mystery. Btw, I don't thinks she's WoFats mother, but maybe was his babysitter which could be the reason neither shot the other. So far s3 is really off the charts. The old sit on the edge of your seat greatness has returned. Alex is back in form and is a joy to watch! Hawaii 5-0 is back. I can't wait for the next episode!
No competition - Alex all the way!
Alex all the way! Love, love, love him!! Sorry Simon but there's no competition here!
Sorry Neil, but there's no competition here! Alex, Alex, Alex!!!
Alex all the way!!
While I love Abbie, I'm a McG girl thru and thru!!
I agree with Jen. I love the show but this season was very uneven. Starting with Lori, then Alex getting sick to finding out who Shelburne was. Don't hang me but having Steve's mom as Shelburne reminded me of the stupid "dream" sequence on Dallas years ago. I hope that this storyline is resolved very, very quickly before it sucks the life out of the show. I also agree with Mrs. Alex O'Loughlin about Catherine becoming a regular. I love Catherine and her occasional appearance to keep Steve happy, so here's hoping the 5th Wheel strategy will help and not hurt the show. I'm looking forward to s3 and seeing more of my favorite core4 in action.
