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!
I understand and I miss Danny, too. I hope this is a one season deal, but having said that, I can kind of understand why Danny was not along for the ride this week. Steve tells Odell it had been a really stressful week, so obviously this episode takes place right on the heels of Danny's trip to the Colombian prison. We have to expect some sick leave for the guy - he got messed up pretty badly in that prison and undoubtedly needed some time off to heal up. As for Scott's family, no they are not in Hawaii this season. His girlfriend, Kacy and his baby are back in LA, so he does have a legitimate reason to commute back and forth. The baby was born the same day as the Hawaiian Blessing at the start of S5 filming, so is only 8 months old. If anyone knows the story about Scott and his father James Caan, it might make it a little easier to understand why he is not in each and every episode this season. When Scott was growing up, his father took years off from film work to raise his son - one of the reasons Scott and his dad are so close. I imagine Scott will want to form just as close a connection with his own child. Good for him, and I'm just glad to have Danny when I can get him on H50.
I didn't see the Roman reveal coming - that was a great twist! I so love badass Kono! We haven't see her kick butt like that since the 2nd episode of the FIRST Season! I'm with Amy here, this show needs at least one stable, reliable, romantic and long-lived relationship! My one remaining question about this couple is still how and when did Kono and Adam meet to begin with? Was it before Kono became a cop, or at least before it was revealed that Adam's father, Hiro was more than just the most powerful businessman on the islands but also the head of Yakuza dealings in HI? Thank you, Show, for at least telling us where Danny was this week. It's easier to accept his absence for a police-related commitment in Newark than just to ignore the fact that his was MIA.
