10.03 – E uhi ana ka wa I hala I na mea I hala
Five-0 investigates when a plan that mysteriously crashed into the Pacific in the ‘80s is found, but with a recently murdered scuba diver inside. Also, as McGarrett and Quinn zero in on who planted the bomb in his garage, and he formally asks her to join Five-0, she is arrested for money laundering.
CBS translated E uhi ana ka wa I hala I na mea I hala to Passing time obscures the past
To be honest, although I enjoyed the episode, I am not quite sure what to make of it. For that reason and because I am really busy this week, this will be a short review.
There are some questions that make no sense to me. First of all, why would Steve, or Quinn, or anyone really, think that Wes Cullen was responsible for the bomb in Steve’s garage? Why would he even bother? Frankly, neither Steve nor Quinn know much about anything concerning his crimes. They have no proof of any wrongdoing. It’s not like they are just minutes from a breakthrough in the case against him.
Why go through all that trouble planting a bomb? No, that wasn’t him, if you ask me. Simply because it makes no sense for him to waste time on it.
You know, I am not much of a fan of the plot “kill the cop that investigates me”. That is just stupid. As if there weren’t then others to continue with the work. And they would probably be pretty pissed off losing a friend like that. So, that whole concept is just stupid and only draws attention to the bad guy. It’s a cheap plot device, one I think is stupid. As you can see, still one of my favorite words. 😉
Next rather stupid plot is the planted money on Quinn.
BUT, as I said I really enjoyed watching this part of the show. I really like Steve and Quinn working together. Very relaxed and natural. Keep that up.
Relaxed. I think that is the perfect description for this episode. The other part with the rest of the team had a lot of blabla, sometimes bordering on boring, but it was OK to watch.
I even had a couple of good laughs. “You look different, Jerry. … Ha, you shaved your beard.” Funny.
Honestly, I love that they don’t even mention a missing detective any longer. He certainly doesn’t leave a hole behind. As most of the times, the episodes without him are smoother and just flow better.
So, this episode had a nice flow.
No, not thinking too much about the plot holes and some of the stupid. Don’t have time for it this week.
What are your thoughts about the latest episode? Who do you think the bad guy behind all this is?
