@Jschoi.....Kono and Adam would be a good pair, as long as he is not his father. He started out not being in the Yakuza, but that changed when his father was kidnapped by Joe. They would certainly look good together.
I think the Fryer character getting killed may be a good choice, since we now know that his wife is being introduced in the finale. But, I still would not totally rule out Joe. He does have a contract with ABC, and I read that the character who plays Stan also has one, and he said its a long process to get ABC to approve one of their actors to be on another network. So Joe will be in one of the final 2 episodes, but if his pilot takes off, we might not be seeing him anytime after that. So we can't rule him out.
@Michael.....Some of us were thinking out loud that Kensi's father might be Shelburne, but that was dashed when they explained what happened to Kensi's father on NCIS LA. Kensi won't be going to Hawaii, but she will be in the NCIS LA part. This is suppose to be about a deadly virus assuming it starts in Hawaii and goes to LA because the Comescu family is involved, which is a family that killed Callen's mother on NCIS LA. If you don't watch both shows, you may be a little lost. If they do it right, then they should be able to fill in the ones that watch only one of the shows. It should be good, the characters on both shows are great.
@Amazingalex....thanks for the update on Alex. That's great that the person who tweeted that left him alone with his son.
@Kelly....yes, I get it, you don't like Danny. Thats fine. Can we move on please.
I've been anxiously awaiting this since they mentioned it. I'm sorry my favorite, Steve, is not in it, but I'm sure Danny and Chin will do us proud. I love both shows, can't wait to see Callen and Sam in Hawaii.
@Mrs. Cleaver.......thank you. I could not remember the line Danny used in describing himself to Chin on how worried he was that Steve left on his own.
I guess that's not compassionate enough for some people.
Steve was missed, but if you did not like the episode, it was not because any of the other characters did not do an excellent job in his absence. As I said before Alex is the lead and there is not a show without him, but for 2 episodes I think they will do just fine. Last night was very entertaining, loved Max.
Scott plays a great Danny. People who keep harping on the character because in their opinion he is harsh, don't seem to understand, that is what his role is, the sarcastic, one liner, best buddy to Steve, compassionate father, and loyal friend to all. Tell me this is not what he portrays. He was the one worried about Steve, he kept calling, but Steve won't pick up, he was the same worrier in episode 2.10. His sarcasm is what makes the character, but his compassion not only with children but with all people shows through. I don't understand the body language comment. He showed compassion for a woman who's daughter was just killed, how could anyone not see that he felt for her, putting himself in her place with his own daughter. Remember Grace was kidnapped. I hope they never change what the Danny character is, its perfect for the show and a great actor protrays him perfectly.
As for Alex, of course he was missed. They did a great job and I'm sure that the crossover will be good also. There was something missing, Steve, but they have done a great job. All four of our heroes need to be there, but the top dog will always be missed. If it were a permanent thing, then the show would suffer and would not make it through season 3, but this is only for 2 episodes. It's great that the show and CBS did not force Alex to continue and let him get the help he needed before it got too bad. The writers had to scramble to change some things, but I think they did a great job. I don't know when the ending scene was filmed, but Alex looked better. Welcome back Alex we missed you.
I very much liked this episode. I've always liked Max, but I'm glad as Jim G. said they are making him not so quirky. This was a great episode for Masi Oka to shine and I think he did it very well. Nice that the Nerdy guys get to be the hero once in a while. The plot was great, everyone's questions as to Max's last name was answered, and we had a lot of creepy looking guys in this episode. All 3 of the guys in the church looked like serial killers. It was great how the writers showed that it could be all three or anyone of them. Also, the actor in the prison, usually plays the creepy guy, this time he was innocent. Good for Max for cashing in on all he has done for 5-0, and asking them to re-open the case.
Danny was fine as lead dog. I don't know why people get so upset at his sarcasm, or are so surprised. That's Danny, that's the character, and Scott plays him well. If he stopped then everyone would start complaining about the lack of quotes and one liners.
I loved this episode. I can't imagine how hard it must have been for Sgt. Renzulli to accept this award, and not being able to tell his wife, that he was not the one who did it. I agree with the reviewer, that the Sgt. was a hero also, he was saving Jamie's life by covering for him, but he also did start to run in the building after it exploded to check on Jamie and the baby. Danny could not say no to an 11 y.o. who just lost his father, how many people could of. But, he actually investigated it and did not just look it over and say it was a suicide. The 11 y.o. should be counted as a hero also for having faith in his father. Great episode.
