Yeah, it took me a while to take in the change of pace of this episode. It's not what we are used to in this series, but I guess that's why this show is so appealing to me - I never know what to expect next! This episode dealt with Steve's feelings toward his father, and the story helped him realize better what his father had been like and how his sending his children away for their safety really cost John McGarrett. It was nice to see Steve come to terms with that part of his past, and I think perhaps it was important for him to reach this understanding before the 100th episode. Great acting by Alex, DDK, Bill Sadler, and Mirrah (Ellie). Looking forward to seeing more of Ellie in future episodes.
Great episode! Loved that we got as much of Danny as we did! I knew this was the episode that was filmed while Scott Caan was welcoming the birth of his daughter. I thought the crime of the week was interesting. Where else but in Hawaii would you find babes in bikinis robbing a tourist bus and then being chased down on surfboards? Certainly not in New York! Anytime the show focuses on Kono, the entire male viewing population stands up and cheers! This season is going great in my eyes! I see a lot more consistency in the writing for these few episodes that have aired so far. Thanks for your review, Michelle!
I'm a Danny's girl, Michelle, and any time we get to see Danny doing his thing as a detective makes me very. very happy! We got to see a lot of empathetic Danny during the COTW, and virtually no whining, which doesn't bother me, but I know it does other viewers. The tension built nicely, climaxing in a very gut-wrenching stand off and diffusing of the situation by TALKING Jason down, rather than shooting him - they didn't know where Sophie was yet! Not every episode has to be over the top action. This episode proves that you can have just as much drama without the body count (which was one, BTW) or suspension of belief (this seems a pretty plausible plot to me) as long as you have good writing, casting and acting (which we had in bountiful supply.) Can't wait to see more of the Matt Williams storyline, too!)
