    • I’d have a hard time choosing between the SEAL ep and the Cath ep for #1. I also choose 2, 7, and the ep Alex directed. Tho the Danno scenes were…too Danno. Just too much Danno. 🙄 But I was excited for director Alex. 🙂


      • GNP: AOL did an awesome job directing 818 but it was marred by the script content which made Danny leapfrog over Rachel and Doris for bad behavior. That says a lot. And this is why E818 disappoints. Danny the hero became Danny the abuser and all because one scene was not edited out. If he was my fave I would be furious and I suspect many McDannos were offended. Just the cheerleaders excused him because he was such a “caring” person. No battered and abused woman needs that type of “caring.”

        I am not crazy about Danny, but they did not have to do this character assassination.

        • Hee! Perhaps it’s just me. But I actually found it satisfying. I don’t think Danno is anywhere near a hero or a decent person. I feel like this ep showed us just exactly who he is. He’s self-centered to the extreme. And mean. We’ve seen other hints of this personality every season. The truth telling actually finally happened in Alex’s ep.

          That’s my take away, anyway.

          • Hi Grace I agree with your take on episode 8.18 and about Danny. right from season 1 Danny was always chasing the women all the models that appear he was after.

            Liked by 1 person

          • I agree, Grace. That was my take, too.
            After the epi aired there have been two kinds of fierce, stomping their feet, screaming till they are red in the face Danny ‘idealizers’ because nothing can make them change their unwavering worship.
            The ones that told me he was OOC (again), what made me think that – perhaps – when someone’s portrayal is OOC so many times, maybe he actually is IN character?
            The others that said that Danny at that time was too young to realize his actions were monumentally wrong. Well, while a grown up cop was too young to be a decent person Steve was busy fighting the taliban.

            • He’s been the jerk in ep 8:18 every single ep of the series, IMO. I’ve never seen him not be self-centered, mean-spirited, jealous of others, and intellectually lazy and pissy. I am always bemused when folks like him, even a little bit. And I’d bet big that if his pandering fan-girls ever met a twit like Danno in RL, they’d quickly run from him.

  1. 8.20 – McRoll together Again (Here’s to a Mature New Beginning) , 8.24 SuperSEAL , Joe and SEAL pup Junior and important pre-taskforce McRoll background. 8.02 – Eddie joins Five-0 and Super SEAL adopts him.

  2. My five favourite episodes for season 8 in this order are 24,20,2,9 and 7

    I love Alex’s story with Steve joining Junior with his Seal Team on a mission to rescue Joe.
    I love Catherine coming back and seeing the chemistry between Steve and Cath is still there
    I loved how the brought Eddie into the show
    I loved the episode where Steve, Danny, Tani and Junior are exposed to a deadly Bioweapon on a yacht
    I love where Steve, Adam and Junior and the bank heist.

    Close to my top five episode are 18,19,22,8 and 12
    I loved that Alex got to direct a episode and I liked the story a lot

    Episodes 10,11,13,14,15,16,17 I thought were stupid storyline and did not watch the episode

  3. Since I hit the enter button accidentally, I continue………..confused that I consider Danny an Alpha, I refer to Steve and Cath. I even liked chaperone Jerry and Eddie. E824 was a very close second. It was wonderful seeing Joe again and finding out he ships McRoll, too. Those two were worth waiting for after some of the disappointments we endured.

  4. Easy pick for me…820 with McRoll moving from the hurt to a better relationship and friendship which of course will lead to happily ever after. Loved how easy and comfortable they were with each other. A close second was 824 with the story by Alex which helped us see flashbacks and background into Joe White andwe find out he shipped McRoll even before we knew they existed.

  5. I am surprised that this is not that easy. There are actually more than five episodes I would vote for. Surprise, surprise.
    Well, first and foremost there is #24. By far the best of this season, and it’s even in my all time favorite list.

    Then, of course, #7, Steve’s getting lei’d. And Alex owning the screen.

    #9, “lunatic and selfish Steve” saving his team while a whining and wimpy ass takes a nap on the couch.

    #12, Steve and Eddie M. large and in charge, Steve standing up for his folks, Steve not forgetting how to feel.

    #18, because Alex the director rocked these three storylines AND his on screen appearance. Even someone’s acting was bearable.

    Loved #4, loved #8, but sadly…

    • I believe that’s the episode with the idiotic intervention and stress counselor for Steve…I really felt hate for Danny in this episode. He WAS NOT thinking of Steve at all, he was thinking about himself, and how Steve’s possible illness would affect HIM…!!

      Liked by 4 people

      • Thank you. This thing with the dress had to be their grossest episode yet. And I agree about the intervention. It was really stupid and not at all funny. Sometimes I wonder if they pin possible scenarios to a board, throw a dart and write about whatever they hit.

        Still, I have great hopes for S9.

  6. Hi everyone! This is time for us to choose our favorite episodes of the season.

    Season 8 was marked by cast changes and some stupid stories. Only the talent and hard work of the cast and crew saved the show. I found dificulty in enjoy watching some of the episodes this season and i confess here that i can’t stand a character anymore. If it didn’t bother me the sarcastic and moody Danny in early seasons, i can’t stand Danny, the jerk. Everytime he apears on my screen my wish is to muted him, so the volum button was used more than ever.

    My easy choices are 8.24, 8.20, 8.02, 8.19. For the fifth i’m torn between 8.07 and 8.09.

    Alex was amazing once more. Chi was great. Belauh was a wonderful surprise. Meghan did a awesome work despite the writers continue not to know how to write female characters. The Hawaiians actors were great and i honestly don’t know if Scott’s purpose is to me hate his character. If it is he won.
