Kudos to the writers for giving us another high octane, sit-on-the-edge-of-your-seat episode. From the opening watching Dekker get shot to the ending seeing Kono shocking Roman to death it was thrilling roller-coaster ride of emotions. We haven't seen bada$$ Kono in a while! I had my doubts in the beginning that Kono and Adam would make it but I'm very happy they're going to make a go of it. I thought it was very sweet watching both Dekker and Jerry giving her relationship advice! Here's hoping nothing happens to either of them and we finally have a happy ending for one of our beloved Ohana. A happy couple on 50! Now wouldn't that be A Kick In the Head!! LOL! I was impressed that they actually mentioned Danny's absence since they don't usually say why a team member is missing. Unfortunately, I didn't miss him. His extreme nastiness this season towards Steve is annoying and growing old. The episode seemed very light (despite the storyline) without him there. I readily admit to being a die-hard Alex O'Loughlin fan and wouldn't watch the show if Alex left, but if Scott left, well... Chi fits the show like a glove and could easily fill some absent shoes. I also like Jeff Morrison - he works well with Steve and the team and I could see him as an addition. Can't wait to see what tptb have in store for us going forward!
I don't trust Joe, never did and nor does Steve. There's a part of me that wouldn't be surprised if we found out the Joe was Steve's father and, hence, the secretive plotting to keep Steve from ever finding out the truth. I hope Steve gets the answers he so needs and deserves to help him heal physically and emotionally. As terrorists go, I think they were rather stupid. Really, what purpose does it serve to kill everyone off or maybe they didn't realize they'd be dead too. Either way there'd be no one left to torment. Good thing we have Steve to do away with the bad and the idiotic of this world! Seriously, it was a very good episode! It was high octane, a good story and fun. I enjoyed watching Steve go into full-blown "Steve the Seal" mode - it's been a while since we've seen him like that. I miss him! I think Lou has a new found appreciation of Steve's commitment after seeing Joe in action! I hope tptb continue this storyline and give it a decent burial.
I enjoyed the epi a lot. The COTW was very sad, the poor dr was just an innocent victim - no good deed goes unpunished. What goes around comes around and the warden and guard both got their punishment. I loved that science Steve was back!! I also love theft that Nahele will be back and Steve will get a chance to help fix another broken toy (and may start fixing himself too!) And Danny was back. The snark was back. I wish they'd tone it down, it's very old after 4+ seasons and not funny. He did somewhat redeem himself at the end with his half-baked cookie comment but we need way more of the nice. Great seeing the team working together we need more of that too!
