(new) Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

the new Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

Randy Couture is a former UFC champion who is now trying his hand acting in movies and on television shows.

Randy joined Ed and Steve to talk about the UFC, Conor McGregor’s retirement, and his upcoming guest appearance on Hawaii Five-O.

Randy started out by talking about his appearance on Hawaii Five-O saying “I play a serial arsonist…there is a prison break and I escape.” As for whether it’s easier to be an athlete or an actor Randy said “they’re both challenging in their own way, as an athlete my whole life I’ve learned to box up my emotions…now they want me to let all that out while playing these characters, it’s a challenge but its been fun both are a grind.”

When asked if the UFC is in danger of over-saturating the market Randy said “I think the market is a little bit saturated, when I was competing there were 6 to 12 big fights a year, and now there is a big fight every month almost every week seemingly.” As for the Conor McGregor retirement/contract dispute Randy said “as a fighter you have a short window to make as much money as you can, and I think that is what he’s doing trying to squeeze as much money out of them as he can…goof for him, I hope it works out for him.”

Efter att jag hade läst Perry Mason och fallet med den anklagade advokaten så kanske de här flyttade hem till mig. Det är del två och tre i Deckarhyllans klassikerserie.

Kungen är död är den 23 boken i Ellery Queen-serien. Jag har inte läst någon i serien tidigare, men jag tror att jag har någon bok i en kartong här hemma. Den kanske får letas fram när den här har blivit läst…

Huset som saknade nyckel är den första boken i serien Charlie Chan och utspelar sig på Hawaii. Jag har inte läst någon bok som utspelar sig där tidigare (tror jag), det ska bli spännande. Jag har sett en säsong av den gamla Hawaii Five-O, det är kanske är lite åt det hållet jag förväntar mig att den här ska vara.

It’s the ushe Friday night line-up, with one cool newcomer (see below and above).

NAVANI’S PICK:
Wynonna Earp [SyFy, 10p]
New female supernatural lead series, yes please. Based on the comic series created by Beau Smith, Wyatt earl’s granddaughter Wynonna returns home to fight supernatural demons.

KATHERINE’S PICK:
Hawaii Five-0 [CBS, 9p]
The gang finds, and stops, an illegal slave trade taking place on some kind of ship. (Kind of reminiscent of The Wire’s second season.) My radiator was humming this week, and it’s the first week of April–and that’s why I’m watching.

JASON’S PICK:
Grimm [NBC, 9p]
Not sure how I feel about turning Renard back to evil, but that’s why I hate and love Grimm. The monster-of-the-week is aging as a victim aged 70 years in a day before her death.

ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:

0401sleepy.jpg

  • Abby and Ichy head into another realm (presumably) to try to stop The Hidden One (truly, he is exhausting). That’s tonight, Sleepy Hollow, FOX.
  • It’s all scars and rumors on the supernatural CW Friday night line-up of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals.

“What are you doing here?”

Steve shrugged and glanced around the baggage claim area.  “I like hanging out at airports,” he responded with a straight face.

Danny smiled as he grabbed his bag off the carousel.  “Anybody ever tell you you have strange habits?”

“This coming from the man who thinks wearing a tie is normal.”

“Wearing a tie is normal.”

“Not here it’s not.”

Danny made a sweeping gesture with his free hand.  “Haven’t we had this conversation before?”

“It’s good to see you, too,” Steve said truthfully.  He extended his hand out.

His partner shook it readily.  “Anything interesting happen while I was gone?”

Steve shrugged again.  “The usual.”

“The usual,” Danny echoed, dubiously.

“Yeah, the usual.”

“There is no ‘usual’.”

“Yeah, there is.  Car chases. International plots of murder and intrigue.  Hostage situations,” Steve immediately supplied in a nonchalant manner.

“Don’t forget armed conflict,” Danny added, making note of a fresh bandage on Steve’s arm.

“Yeah, that sort of thing.”

“Remind me again why I came back,” he countered flippantly as they started their trek toward the car.

“Because you love it here.  And you’d miss me.”

“Grace, yes.  You?  No.”

Steve beamed.  It felt easy and natural to fall back into their regular banter.  “How was Jersey?” he finally asked.

It was Danny’s turn to shrug.  His gaze instantly fell.

His change in body language didn’t go unnoticed.  “Not what you thought it would be?”

The New Jersey native had spent most of the trip back trying to answer that very question.  He wasn’t about to admit it though.  There were still too many emotions to work through.  “Nah, it was fine,” he lied.

“That’s not your ‘fine’ face.”

He shot him a look.  “I don’t have a ‘fine’ face.”

“Yeah, you do.”

“No, I don’t.”

“You want me to drop it?”

“Yes, I want you to drop it.”

“Okay.  This is me dropping it.”

The rest of the short walk to the car was passed in silence.  When they arrived, Steve automatically popped the trunk.  Danny dropped his suitcase in without comment.  It was the lack of eye contact that bothered his partner.  By the time Steve settled in behind the wheel, Danny was buckled in but his gaze was distant and unfocused.

Steve didn’t bother to start the car.  Nor did he speak.  He just looked over at Danny expectantly, knowing the conversation had really yet to begin.

Danny reached up and took down the postcard secured to the visor.  The picture of Grace came next.  He stared at them both for a long moment.  Steve waited patiently out of respect.

“It wasn’t-“  He cut himself off, rubbing a hand down over his mouth.  When he started again, his voice was steadier.  “I expected it to be the same.”

When he didn’t continue, Steve prompted him.  “But it wasn’t.”

“I felt like a damn tourist in my own hometown,” he admitted, his voice touched with disgust.

Steve smirked.

“What?” he demanded.

“Welcome home, Danno.”

“Your grandfather got wise to what was going on. So the next day, he showed up an hour earlier. Sure enough the galley fan was on. The lights too. Four juniors were sitting there, passing around a joint. They all popped to. The guy who got stuck with it tried to hide it behind his back,” Boatswain’s Mate Ed McKay recalled, chuckling.

Steve listened to the story with a smile on his face.

“He said if he ever caught them doing it again, he’d shove their sorry asses overboard. They all knew he was crazy enough to do it, too.”

“Do you think you and Mom would have gotten back together if she hadn’t married Stan?”

Danny glanced sidelong at her as they walked.  “No,” he answered truthfully.

“Why not?”

His pace slowed.  A second later, he stopped and crouched down in front of her.

“Your mom and I… We fought a lot.  About lots of different things.”

Grace held his gaze.  “I remember.  You used to yell a lot.”

It was Danny who broke eye contact first.

“Mrs. Ichiyama says that you can always say you’re sorry.”

Danny met her gaze again.  “Some things take more than an apology.”

Season 6 | Episodes 17 | “Waiwai” | Aired Mar 11, 2016

In the latest Hawaii Five-0, we get some closure for one storyline (McRollins), make some progress on another (Abby), and take down a Russian spy. All in a day’s work.

First, our case of the week. A doctor is scrubbing in for surgery, but rather than cutting into the patient, she uses the scalpel to slice into everyone in the room and kills the patient and two of the medical staff in the process. (Stuff like this doesn’t even happen on Grey’s Anatomy, so you know it’s crazy.)

At the crime scene, the team deduces that the patient was the target of a hit; the rest of the doctors and nurses were collateral damage. Before the killer left, she cut into a recent surgery incision on the patient’s abdomen. Something was implanted there—but what?

Kono tracks the patient to David Yang, a disgraced plastic surgeon who does backroom surgeries. Steve and Danny swing by his Chinese medicine shop to have a chat. Yang tries to claim doctor-patient privilege, but the patient’s dead, and he’s not a doctor. He admits he implanted a flash drive in the victim’s belly, but he doesn’t know what was on it. But he does know the name of the man who paid for the surgery—Chris Dalton, a cyber strategist (a.k.a. an anti-hacker).

Steve and Danny go to speak to Dalton, but his boss, Elliot Brenner, says he’s part of an internal investigation and is unable to speak to them. Steve is insistent. Unfortunately, when they get to the room where he was being held, Dalton has already escaped out of a broken window.

Brenner tells Steve that Dalton was being investigated because he used his security clearance to download classified NSA files about black-ops intel. Steve orders Brenner to update the NSA; all of their undercover agents are at risk.

Kono and Grover check out Dalton’s house, but he’s not there. They do find out who the killer from the hospital is, though: Anna Novick, Dalton’s girlfriend—and a Russian spy.

But if Anna has been killing to get the flash drive, they’re obviously not working together. And when Dalton contacts her to meet up after his escape, he’s putting himself in serious danger. This becomes clear when Dalton and Anna are surrounded by Five-0, and she pulls out a machine gun and starts shooting. Anna escapes the shootout, but Dalton is taken into custody.

Hawaii Five-0, "Waiwai"

During the interrogation, Dalton says he wanted to use the intel as leverage to force the NSA to do less surveillance on Americans, but obviously Anna had other plans. He’s upset she recovered the drive, but it’s heavily encrypted. The only key to unlock it is in his head.

But the interrogation goes sideways when gas starts pouring out of the vents and everyone in the entire building passes out. Anna strolls in with a gas mask and takes Dalton, but Steve is able to uncover Anna’s location from one of her goons, and the team bursts in before the file is decrypted.

Steve, for one, is super-glad the files are saved in time, because it turns out Catherine’s name was in one of them. That’s right: Catherine is working deep undercover in Ukraine. With the case wrapped, Danny checks in with Steve about the whole deal. Steve says that he’s angry Catherine that lied to him about where she was going, but he understands why she did. Danny suggests that maybe she just didn’t want Steve to worry about her. Not sure any of us really believe that, but Danny is a good friend for trying.

Hawaii Five-0, "Waiwai"

The final piece of our H50 puzzle this week is Abby. Steve hosts a team meeting to discuss Danny’s discovery that Five-0 is being investigated, and now they know by whom. The man investigating them is Robert Coughlin, a federal prosecutor, and the brother of Rex Coughlin. (The IA agent who tried desperately to arrest Chin and whom Gabe stabbed through the eyeball last season. That murder gave me nightmares. Thanks for showing it again, guys.)

The team isn’t sure if this is an official investigation or if Coughlin is on a personal vendetta, but regardless, their first step is figuring out who is working for him. (The answer, we know, of course, is Abby.)

Abby sets up an impromptu meeting with Robert to warn him that the team knows about him, and her days as a mole are numbered. She also throws in her two cents about the case. She hasn’t seen anything that warrants disbanding or arresting the team. But Coughlin argues that Abby is just letting things get personal because of her relationship with Chin. He is in charge, and Abby will stay undercover or lose her badge.

But apparently Abby comes up with a third option, because by episode’s end, she goes to see Chin. There’s something she needs to tell him …

Hawaii Five-0 airs Fridays at 9/8C on CBS.
