Well, I don’t really have that much to say about this episode. In my eyes, another mediocre episode. The only saving grace, as so often lately, was Steve. Since I have very little to say about it I asked Cokie to help out. 😉
Sorry, guys, no pictures. But I am sure LeiCa will make up for that.
I don’t have a lot to say about this last episode either, but I do want to comment … mostly on things that bug me, so be warned.
There is a bad storm coming and people are evacuating. Rachel and Charlie are in the evacuation zone so it only makes sense they would go to Danny’s. I would do the same in the circumstances. But Rachel tells Danny that his daughter is safe in California and is enjoying herself, and the first words out of his mouth is about money. Poor him, footing the bill for his daughter’s school trip. Is there anything to make him happy? Well, other than waking up on the couch with his ex?
You really think it made sense for her to show up like that? And why on earth is Danny even home while every other police officer his helping to make it safe for everyone. Oh, don’t even get me started on that.
When we transition to HQ, I liked seeing that Junior was already in Steve’s office. Silly, I know, but I feel like Steve was bouncing ideas off him. He trusts Junior’s opinion and I like that.
Yes, Steve and Junior have a lot in common.
Love watching Steve waiting for the FBI to show up. He was ready for anything. I liked him telling the story of his friend and family. Even though this was an FBI operation, it suddenly was personal.
Tell me, how many people has poor Steve lost by now? Just wondering, you know.
Now back to the leaky ceiling with its box of utterly idiotic deodorant. I swear, I know I have come up with slim plot lines before, but this one is for the books. He has old deodorant in the attic that he brought from New Jersey 9 years ago??? That he has moved with him HOW many times in these last years? And she actually swooned when she smelled it like a 16-year-old with a crush. Gag me.
I like Rachel. I really do. She did some nasty things, too, but I still like her. But this whole scenario at Danny’s place was just nauseating. Sorry, but the worst so far. Oh wait, I think the worst was way back at that cheap motel when Danny slept with his ex-wife who was still married to another man. I believe she still is? Isn’t she?
I truly hope these two will get back together and then live happily ever after as far away from Hawaii as possible.
Here is an aside. Did you recognize the lead FBI agent as the neighbor, Jefferson, on Married With Children? I did not but my daughter knew him. All those guys had on body armor, yet it appeared they all were killed. But I didn’t see any blood. And I don’t want to go back and watch it again.
They all dropped like flies. 😉
Until we get to the fight scene. That was great. Steve was really in rare form. He surely had to have bruises on his back and his leg. That had to hurt! 🙂 OK, I do know this wasn’t real… 🙂
But the fight scene was THE scene in the entire show. The rest was a bit ho hum for me.
As I said, the only good thing about this episode. Steve large and in charge. Honestly, the only thing lately that keeps me watching. Don’t get me wrong, still love watching Steve… but the rest is just so… boring, stupid and a waste of time.
OH, I forgot about the poor sheriff’s deputy bleeding out in the basement. The one who we heard nothing else about after going in shock with Jerry and Web MD. Why was that even in there? To give Jerry and Grover something to do?
Awful. The whole thing.
A word about Tani. What a useless and meaningless storyline with her planning to arrest the family and then getting herself tied up. Utter waste of screen time.
I said that I am still not sure what to thing about Tani, but it comes clearer and clearer, I can’t stand that woman.
I give the show a C- and Steve and his fight an A+.
Same here. I really hope for some better episodes, some that deserve a real review.
Oh, let me just say one more thing. I know there was a small debate about the accuracy of HQ and the Palace, and a magic parking structure that suddenly appeared under HQ. Guys, this is a fictional Task Force. It doesn’t matter if they have a garage under HQ. Because it is not HQ of Five-0. There is no such thing. And I honestly don’t care if they call it Palace or Hale, or whatever. It’s not really there. It’s called creative license. We do it all the time. Everyone writing does that. And that is how it should be. You create what you need. This is not a documentary about historical sites. There are so many things you could wonder about on any given show, but really, why bother? Haven’t you learned that yet? 😉
