Here is our next question for our discussion “forum”: What one thing would you have changed in the first nine years of H50? How would that have impacted how the story progressed?
OK, ONE thing is really hard to do, so we expand that to THREE things. 😉
Here are my three I would have changed.
One, McGarrett senior to kill in the first few minutes of the pilot was such a shock; and I would have loved to see more interaction between father and son. I think the story would work just the same with McG senior still alive. It would have been the same for Steve to find out who had TRIED to kill his dad.
Second, I wish Freddie didn’t have to die. He would have been an awesome friend to see from time to time. And Steve wouldn’t carry so much guilt around.
And third, I would have Steve propose to Catherine in Season four when they were in such a good place, as Catherine put it. She didn’t have to work with the task force, just being there, having a happy, loving relationship with Steve. And that would have spared the fandom a lot of drama.
If I had to pick just one, I would go with Catherine. Always!
