Episode 9.25

Season Finale

I loved this episode, it was exciting. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time (alright, nearly the whole time) because I so wanted them to get Aaron. Jerry was awesome! He really earned his place in this Elite Task Force. Can’t say that about everybody.

The moment in Steve’s office with Frank was wonderful. I thought Joe would want to get buried under his tree, but this was okay. The conversation between Steve and Frank made me tear up. Sniff.

Now let’s have a final look at Steve! Hope you enjoy. ~leiCa

Episode 9.24

I really liked this episode. Not as awesome as the last #24 episodes, that’s for sure, but entertaining.

But the pastry crime storyline? Not that much. Ridiculous. They have an emergency, one team member is already elsewhere, and Grover’s got the day off? Oh come on, show. Seems, they’ve got way too many folks around the magic table. Sometimes less is more. Let’s have a close look at the cliffhanger on Friday.

And at Steve. Enjoy, leiCa


I don’t know what he is going through. But I feel it.

9.22 Review

9.22. –  O ke kumu, o ka māna, ho‘opuka ‘ia

While Adam investigates the murder of an undercover FBI agent about to wed the daughter of a Yakuza leader, Noelani is held hostage and forced, along with her mentor Dr. Chu (Page Leong), to operate at gunpoint on a criminal, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, April 26 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

CBS translated O ke kumu, o ka māna, ho‘opuka ‘ia to The Teacher, the Pupil – Let it come forth

The last couple of weeks I have tried to come up with the time to add my two cents. Unfortunately that is not going to happen in the near future. So, enjoy Cokie’s solo review for the episode. I think she did a great job.

Episode 9.22

Alex O’Loughlin appreciation post.

I was blown away by the last scenes of this episode. That was stellar acting by Kimee Balmilero and Alex O’Loughlin. This is what you get when you don’t catch the actors acting. Real acting is impossible to spot. And then it makes you feel something.

Steve has been through so much, suffered so much, almost his whole life consisting of pain, loss and struggle. And yet he remains such a warmhearted, empathic, giving, altruistic human. He is there for all the people who are in need of a shoulder to lean on.

And we buy it. We KNOW that Steve is this Steve, we KNOW that he is this remarkable man because of AOL. I can’t repeat it often enough. It’s not in the words, it’s in the play. Being emotional is not acting – but expressing emotions is. Alexpressions.
