Season 3 poll 3.01 – 3.05

We are already starting with season 3. I’m sure the episodes are still very fresh in your memory.

I think a spoiler warning is needed. So if you don’t want to be spoiled, only take a look at the episodes you have seen.

We will start with the poll for season 3 as soon as the last episode has aired. All polls will be open until end of July. In August and early September we will have the final poll, compiled from the three seasons. I’m really looking forward to that final poll to see the fan favorites.

Credits for the pictures to CBS and as credited on the pictures. If there is no credit on the pic, it’s my own screen shot.

Episode 3.01 – Sept. 24, 2012

La O Na Makuahine (Mother’s Day)

McGarrett brings his mother back to the island. Her life may be in danger after Wo Fat escapes from prison with the help of Frank Delano.

Following McGarrett’s mother’s surprise return and Chin’s gut-wrenching decision, the team is determined to track down Wo Fat and Delano for killing an important member of their family.

This episode for sure was long awaited, and I for one was not disappointed. Okay, I could have gladly done without The Claw, but other than that great start into the season.


Episode 3.02 – Oct. 1, 2012

Kanalua (Doubt)

The team and friends attend the paddle-out for Malia in support of Chin Ho.

Five-0 turns to August March for help in finding a pair of art thieves who are involved in a kidnapping, but is March actually in on the plot?

Steve asks Catherine for help in locating his mother.

Who does not remember Malia’s funeral? Or the end Chin telling how he had met Malia. Both were great scenes.
