It was an excellent episode. Learning that her mom suffered an aneurysm and was still able to share in her journey was very touching. Both the young and older Kono actress' did a great job. Watching Kono take care of herself only solidified for me her inner strength. I also loved learning about the Hawaiian traditions. Seeing the team rally round her in the beginning was one of the many things that made me fall in love with this show that true ohana spirit. I'm glad she was able to save herself (with some help from moms will) with only lots of worry from Steve and Chin! The COTW was sad. What a hard-hearted, unforgiving son he was. I guess Carter got what he deserved. After last weeks awful debacle, this episode was well written and acted by all involved.
I enjoyed the episode a lot. Chi's acting was awesome and, like Alex, he's capable of saying so much without uttering a word. I enjoyed the fact there wasn't a single gunshot fired and we got to learn more about Lou and Renee. The beginning of this season wasn't memorable but it has picked up. We're getting to see slightly different aspects of the show instead of the usual shoot-em-ups. I think the team dynamic is fine, I'm actually liking Steve with Lou more than with Danny - maybe Danny's meanness towards Steve will ease and things will go back to the way they were. I do hope the show gets picked up for a few more seasons because I simply adore Alex.
It was an excellent episode - seeing Steve front and center and in full SEAL mode is always a treat. Having emotional Steve is an added pleasure. No one does emotion like Alex. Jerry's storyline was a much needed break from the Armenian vampire. The main storyline was a bit over the top, but it's tv, so poetic license is a given. Realistically I'm sure what took place is not a usual occurrence but, who knows, in large communities of immigrants it might happen because of fear of law enforcement retribution, which is a reason they left home in the first place. I do hope Michael makes a reappearance - he has a great chemistry with Alex and would be a welcomed addition to the team. Steve needs a safe haven and a non-judgemental ear to listen! Btw, I don't take my cell w/me all the time either. As for Scott, truthfully I didn't miss him. I do like Danny and the McDanno dynamic but not this season. Danny's way to mean and nasty to Steve. Maybe after his run-in with a Colombian jail he might return to the snarky, funny Danno of old. Hope so. On a realistic front, glad he's able to spend time with his daughter. This season started off a bit slow with a few clunkers but has made a nice turn around. Now, if we can get a renewal notice it'd be perfect!
