Loved this episode and loved Lynn! Hope she gets to stick around for a long time. Since the actress, Sarah Carter, does not live in Hawai'i, I doubt we will see her at Ohana gatherings unless she is also in a storyline for the episode. I hope we hear reference to her from time to time so we know Steve is still seeing her (and I would love to see Danny interact with Lynn!) I won't say there was instant chemistry between the characters, but their was an easiness to their interaction that made it obvious Steve was enjoying himself before the "run for your life" events started. While looking at the selfie, I got the impression that Steve was reflecting on his past relationship and was letting it go. IMO, Catherine will probably always be the passion of his life - but sometimes that passionate lover does not make the best wife. If Catherine comes back, will Steve honestly be able to trust that she won't pull a "Doris" again and run off into the sunset for another mission, leaving him alone and waiting again? Eventually, excitement and passion wanes in most relationships, and trust and security take it's place. Would Steve ever be able to feel that way towards Catherine, no matter what the reason for her leaving him high and dry - twice. Not to say Lynn Is his forever mate, either, but at least her presence in his life right now is helping him to see that this is life after Catherine.
Thanks for reviewing this episode! It's really my favorite H50 Halloween episode in all six seasons - well written, intense but with it's humorous moments. The three separate story lines were nicely melded together to make a cohesive episode. I look forward to future reviews as I think this will be a fantastic season.
I loved this episode. So shoot me if I'm easy to please! I leave my cell phone in the car all the time! Sure, I'm not the head of a state crime fighting task force, but even Steve McGarrett needs time to chill from the world and spend a half hour getting a good shave and haircut. So what if there are a few holes in the story. Doesn't bother me in the least. We certainly had the action this week! No one should complain about not enough SuperSEAL McGarrett! Lots of comedy and drama, as well. I didn't see the twist at the end coming, so good job, writers for keeping me in the dark! Good acting and lots of great stunt work, as usual. Season 5 has been most enjoyable for me, and it's not over yet!
