Please don’t expect a full review. There is quite a lot I wish to say about this episode, but I simply don’t have the time for it.
So, let’s at least have a mini-review.
I can can tell you right up front that this episode was not for me. Sorry, but it was a huge disappointment. Well, that is not really true, for being disappointed one has to expect a lot. Which I didn’t. The episode simply didn’t click with me in any way.
But let’s start with the good stuff.
I liked Lou’s niece. It was nice to see that they followed up on her becoming a member of HPD.
I also liked Grover. As always another good performance by Chi McBride.
Honestly? This is pretty much all that falls into the good category.
So, let’s move on to the… well, the not so good stuff? Let’s start with Tani. I am so tired of this person. She never finished the Academy, but now she teaches at it? You’ve got to be kidding me! That was just a cheap way to get her to witness the flirting between Siobhan and her “boyfriend”. In my eyes, a pretty lame way. Sorry, Chi (or who wrote this part), but you could have done better.
I must confess, the first 15 minutes were beyond boring for me.
OK, next. Adam. Please just finish this storyline. It’s stupid and ridiculous. After all he has done, after betraying Steve and Five-0 like he did, he is now just back and all is fine? And D can’t even understand why someone would be suspicious of him? I simply rolled my eyes. Actually, I did that a lot during this episode.
I would love Adam if he really went back to the dark side, where he came from. But him being back with Five-0 is just outrageous. And frankly, I have no interest in the outcome whatsoever.
And one more plea from me, please stop with the kidnapping stuff. That is so tiring.
Looking back at the episode, even now, a couple of days later, I really can’t come up with any scenes that I would want to watch again. For me, this was a total waste of time. And this time, not even Steve could save the episode.
What I do hope for is to see the niece again. She was really good.
There you have it. Now go and tell me how I missed all the awesome stuff.
