Crime of the week
Was there even one? Honestly, I had to watch it again to even remember what this episode was about. Not that any part of the show was boring or anything, there was just one part of it overshadowing anything else. But we’ll come to that a little later.
We start the show with a diver going for trinkets that were lost under water. He found quite a few, including a gun. Unfortunately, that same gun was also his demise.
I watched this episode with Cokie live at eight, first time ever, and we both thought what a neat and original idea those scenes were. Not that it would be possible to get shot like that under water, but who cares about real science. – There was a documentary about proving or disproving the science behind “James Ryan”, and they clearly proved that it would not be possible to shoot anyone like that underwater. Anyway, on with the show.
I thought the crime of the week was interesting enough and it produced some really great scenes.
I love Steve’s look here. 🙂
I had a really good laugh though when the printer was STILL printing those bills. That was kinda silly.
One additional thing, OK, maybe one or two things, I have to say is about Annoying-Danny-Nephew. Do we really have to put up with that putz (Danny’s words, not mine) again? He is even more annoying than Pua ever was. Please, I’m begging you, send him back to wherever he came from. He is NOT funny. He’s annoying, disrespectful, and should not be trusted with any kind of job until he grows up a bit more. Even Steve found him more than annoying, and he normally has the patience of a saint with most people.
I’m sorry, but having Jerry, ADN and Kamekona is just too much. That is overload. Please do something about that. Thank you.
Oh, and by the way, when did Jerry get his boxes back? They were stolen in early season 5, and as far as I know he never recovered anything, did he?
Second thing, I am so not interested in Kono’s side story about the surfer. That was an unnecessary filler, one that didn’t even move me. I don’t know why the show always, always tries to shove the father-theme into our faces. I do not appreciate it. And again it was such a waste of screen time. Of course, that might just be me, I know others probably loved it. So, there you have my complaints. Now on to more important things. 😉
Like some of the great action scenes and such pretty on the screen. 😉
OK, enough with that, let’s head over to the discussion worthy stuff.
Yeah, I still say he should mind his own business. What did he accomplish with talking to Catherine? Nothing. Nothing at all. He only made her feel truly horrible for something she already knew.
And my question even more so is, what the heck did he think he would accomplish? If she wanted to leave that she would change her mind because he told her Steve felt heartbroken? What kind of idiot is he really?!
This whole scene was not for Catherine; it was not for Steve. It was just a tool by the writers for the fans, so they could show ‘us’ what a wonderful friend Danny is. And what Steve really felt while Cath was gone.
Sorry, but didn’t work for me. Simply because that person was not Danny. It was not Danny talking to Catherine, and it certainly was not Danny who talked to Steve on the boat. Because their roles were completely reversed. Since when doesn’t Danny believe doomsday hangs over every relationship and can only see the worst outcome of everything?
And since when doesn’t Steve think in the most positive way? That not just bordered on ridiculous, it was. Yes, those scenes on the boat were great, but what Danny was saying was just not Danny. He does not think like that. Never has, never will. Another tool to get us to like Danny, and show us that all his nastiness is just a front. Sorry, again not working for me. Because it simply doesn’t fit the Danny we have been getting for over five years in every darn episode.
And one more thing, I hope Steve does kill him when he finds out that Danny went behind his back and that he talked to Cath. That was the ultimate betrayal of any kind of friendship and trust. Danny’s motives might have been good, but you just don’t do that. Especially not if you won’t accomplish anything with it.
Many of us have guessed that Steve wouldn’t even get the chance to ask Catherine the big question. We all probably wondered what the reason for that might be.
And I’m sure most of us thought it would be because she would leave again. But did we also think about the CIA/NIA/whatever angle?
All started out so well that morning. Guess Steve loved being awakened by her before these scenes. Too bad we didn’t actually see those scenes… you know, just saying.
OK, let me tell you something, I loved those last scenes. They were fantastically acted by the both of them. I loved MB in this, that was a great performance.
Did I love where this was going? Do you even have to ask that? NO, of course I didn’t like it.
Obstacles to overcome to have a great relationship are a great tool. It creates great drama. For a short while! But what Five-0 is doing is just ridiculous and repetitive.
Cath and Steve have been together for many years, long before we ever met them. And they were in a really good place until 4.21. After that we had a year of misery for Steve (and us) until Cath came back.
Finally, after so many years Steve was ready to make their long-time relationship official and all. But no, of course not, because someone decided these two need more separation and more drama. Well, let me tell you something, at some point this drama and waiting loses all quality of drama and becomes stupid.
That is where we are with Steve and Cath at the moment.
So, Cath is forced to lie to Steve, to the guy she really loves. And I have NO doubt that she really loves her man. She is forced to lie to him to go on some super-secret mission to do who knows what.
OK, let’s start with the speculation. No, let’s wait a moment for something else first. You see, this is the pretty much only problem I have with this storyline. I can’t see Catherine lying to Steve for anything. Not again. She would have found a way to tell him what is going on. But back to the speculation.
I think Catherine did this to protect Steve. I think ‘they’ threatened him, and most likely Danny too, if she wouldn’t keep quiet about her mission. I believe this has something to do with Columbia.
And Catherine would do anything to protect Steve. Anything.
She hurt him, hurt him deeply with this, and she knows it. But it was probably the only thing she could do. I have no idea what she has to do, or why Steve can’t know about it. But who knows, there might be a good reason.
I don’t think at all that her character was ruined by this. I think her character gained a lot by this. It is just sad that they felt the need to add more drama to it because as I said it’s not drama anymore. It has drifted into ridiculous territory.
And if anyone believes this relationship is over for Steve, even if he said so, doesn’t know Steve at all. Yes, he tries to protect himself at the moment from the absolute misery he has felt the last 12 months, but he loves Cath, and he will wait for her. Even if he doesn’t know it yet.
He will wake up one morning and realize that something was not right with Catherine’s story. Her words never matched her behavior. He knows her. He’ll figure it out… sooner or later.
They will come out of this stronger than ever. Maybe Steve will even get the chance to go and rescue Cath from whatever mission she’s on right now. That would be a cool episode.
So, as you can see, I’m by far not as upset as one would think I’d be after the episode.
Steve might live a little for a while, trying to forget, but he’ll come to his senses. Mark my words. These two are far from over. On the contrary, this is the beginning of a great come-back-together.
At the end of the season they will be together, and in season seven they will finally be a team.
Did they have to do this? No, of course not. You can create great drama without separating two people who clearly love each other and are ready to take the final step. Lots of drama in that.
But no, they felt the need to give us another lying spy. How original. Sigh.
But still, I thought this was a great episode.
So, let us hear what you’re all thinking about the episode. 😉
