This was a great episode. I did not think he was alive, I had suspected that perhaps he killed himself. But I'm glad that they did not go that route, that would have been really depressing. I loved that they all showed their degust at all three of the suspects, and ended up arresting all 3 for other crimes. What kind of a father uses handcuffs on any child. The acting was very good, and the drag queens were all well played. I think Summer with Cho is growing on me, she does bring out another side of him. I agree that Lisbon had changed a lot this season, and I'm not sure why they had done such a dramatic turn for this character. I would not mind if they did it in small doses or gradually, but this has gone too far to the other side. I guess when Jane's love interest appears we will see how Lisbon handles that.
@Jschoi.....you are right. He did say that to Kono, and Delano is listed in the cast for the finale. Which also makes it look like Fryer is one of the ones that gets killed off. He has a grudge against both Fryer and Kono, so to go after Chin and Malia, or Kono and Malia is plausible. In the meantime he also goes after Fryer. As far as Steve, Shelburne would need to be someone Steve cares about for him not to be there for Chin and Kono, or Joe is in trouble or killed by this new bad guy. Mary is not listed, so it can't be her. A lot of theories going around in my head. It should be fun.
@Jschoi.....that's interesting. It could be that they are at home and someone kidnaps them. I remember something being written like.....someone from Kono's past comes back to haunt her. Maybe they try to lure Kono, or make her suffer. OK, thats a good possibility that you brought up.
It's not the core 4. They are safe. They may make it seem as though one is killed for the finale, but no way are they going to kill the show by getting rid of any of the original 4. This year and last year there were always rumors about Grace Park not wanting to be away from her husband, that they wanted to start a family, etc. Nothing is impossible, but there is a miniscule chance that is going to happen. I was disappointed that Catherine was not in the finale, but she will be there for season 3. I assume that the kidnapping has to do with Chin, Malia, and Kono. As Jschoi said, Chin may have to save Malia because she is a civilian and Kono is the cop. Although the earlier statement was that they would not be there for each other. I can't imagine that Steve and Danny not being there if Kono is kidnapped. There are just so many possibilities. The last 3 episodes should be awesome.
Peter Lenkov tweeted this yesterday: Last nite in HI b4hiatus. Heading 2 set for all nite shoot. Intense stuff. By sunrise so much will have changed. Sounds ominous. But then again thats part of his job, to get us talking and thinking. Makes me a little more anxious about the finale though. We know that whatever it is it will be resolved next season, but the wait and speculation will be fun and torture at the same time.
I was thinking about the part of Danny having to make a decision between his job and Grace in the finale. I was wondering if there is any backlash from Rachel for the kidnapping, and she threatens to take away Danny's visits if he does not quit 5-0. Just a thought. I have not seen the press release yet for 2.23 to see if Rachel is in the finale. Has anyone else? I think Steve finding out who Shelburne really is, will have a big effect on his life. It could be his mother. I hope that we get more background on Kono and Chin. But that does sound like a lot to cover in one episode. I'm a little torn, I want to know what is going to happen, but sad to see the season end.
@Lena....I feel the same way. At least we know they will be back for another season. Glad they are getting some time off for themselves. I'm anxious to see how the other NCIS LA fans react to the crossover, although not as many of them comment as do the H50 fans. It will be great to talk about new episodes for 3 weeks. Then wait until July when they report back for any BTS pictures. We will all keep each other informed of any news. DDK will be on Live with Kelly on Tuesday and he is also at the Whitehouse on Saturday as part of some hollywood get together with the Obama's. He is such a sweetheart. He tweets well wishes for everyone a lot and always has a smile on his face. He's a great ambassador for the show.
Some good ideas about the finale from the previous comments. @Amazingalex....Lena is right, now you are one of us, last summer, as far as H50 was not fun waiting so long for the season premiere. We need to be prepared. It sounds like they are going to show them splitting again, even if its just emotionally. But, we all know it will be fixed come September's episodes. It could be that this was their last day, but I think Masi Oka probably finished before anyone else, his part is smaller. They already had their wrap party for the season, so no need for him to hang around. PLenkov tweeted that the first day of vacation was Thursday. He might have been talking about himself only, but I don't think so. Anyway, long wait after May 14th.
Nice TV Guide article out on the crossover. Martinelli has it on her blog and its in a couple of other places. Happy the rest of the season is getting closer.
@Amazingalex....Hopefully they don't have too much planned for the hiatus, especially Alex. I'm sure they enjoy what they do, they certainly look like they enjoy working with each other. But like anyone else's job, I'm sure they are looking forward to a break, and they are happy this is their last couple of days. Sad for us though, that means a long wait until September. Gonna miss our guy until then, but I hope we don't see him too much, I'd rather he rest and be his old self for season 3.
