I thought this was a great episode. I like that the writers have struck a good balance of the mystery/crime and the Caskett romance. The handshake was clever and erotic--Kudos.
I thought Gates' reaction to the doll was a bit over the top. She goes from being a hard nosed b****h to stupid soft way too quickly to be believed. She remains such an incidental character they could eliminate her role and nobody would notice or care.
I agree that the "bromance" was annoying. The banter was never very clever and having Danny do nothing but whine is a discredit to the character. Once we got past that and they were rescued the show got better. One other part that was phony was when Chin is trying to grab Kona's hand and their fingers won't touch. Suddenly he's able to lock onto her wrists. MAGIC!!!
Let's have more crime solving and let Danno grow up and be a cop again. BTW, what happened to his wife and child?
I thought Penny was an important and delightful character and I understood her absence when Kaley broke her leg but now she really seems a forgotten character. We need to hear more of her earthy wisdom and see more of her in future episodes.
