We are to believe that there is a new villain in town.
More vicious, more dangerous than all who we had before. Even more so than Wo Fat. Well… to be honest, so far I haven’t seen any of that.
So far, I have seen a young guy, greatly portrayed by Christopher Sean, who wants to play with the big boys. Sorry, but he seems like a child compared to Wo Fat.
Seriously. Wo Fat was not just a threat to Steve and his Five-0 band, no he was also a threat to national security. I think it is even safe to say he was an international threat. An international arms dealer, terrorist and ruthless murderer. Highly trained, with resources to back-up all his plans, with connections all around the world.
Who the f/ck is Gabriel compared to that? A kid desperately trying to play in the big league. In my eyes, he is nothing. A joke really.
He killed Chin’s dad. And now he’s threatening and trying to interact with Chin. He tried his luck with dealing drugs. Even made a name in that business.
And he killed a cop (the IA guy), and now his competition on the islands. Seriously? That is nothing more than a run-of-the-mill criminal does. But nothing more so far.
Threatening Chin? Yeah, so what? Others have tried that. People a lot more capable than he thinks to be.
I am sorry, but I can’t take him seriously. I had high hopes for him, simply because Christopher Sean does a great job, but the material he’s given… that is pretty weak so far. Gabriel is really no threat to anyone just yet.
But what I really liked was Chin going to Steve, keeping him informed. I think he didn’t just inform him because he’s his boss and the head of the task force, but because Steve is his friend, and Chin wanted his advice.
I truly like seeing them work together. I like their mutual respect. And I hope that Chin will tell Steve about his latest encounter with Gabriel. But most of all I hope Chin will not doubt the friendship and loyalty from Steve and the rest of the team. If the show would go that way, well, that would be totally against Chin’s character. I also hope they don’t intend to have Chin be accused of being a bad cop again. That’s been done, what? Twice? Enough is enough. Chin has proven himself again and again. Let’s not start that all over.
So, that is one villain. What about the other? Adam? 😉 Yeah, I still hope he will not be this boring guy he is at the moment. I still hope he will be the great super villain who managed to fool them all. That would be so cool.
Let’s have a little poll here. What do you think, is Adam a good guy, or will we learn that he’s really one of the big bad bosses? 😉
