(new) Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

the new Hawaii Five-0 on CBS


Danny’s ex-wife Rachel turns up at his door in the middle of the night: their daughter Grace was out, and hasn’t come home on time. Being Five-0 has its privileges, of course, and Danny traces her mobile phone to a road in the middle of nowhere. He and Rachel turn up just in time to see Grace being driven off in an ambulance and, when they follow her to the hospital they find out that Grace was driving a car that crashed off the road at high speed, that she’s critically ill with a fractured skull which requires surgery, and that she had a passenger in the car who has also been hospitalised as a result of the crash, something about which her father has very strong views. Oof.

Everyone knows that Grace couldn’t be responsible for this – I mean, she was driving the car, there’s no doubt about that, but not responsible responsible – and Steve and Lou investigate, while Danny alternates between pacing the floor and bickering, then bonding, with Rachel. (The episode was scripted by the H50 writers’ room MVP Zoe Robyn, who does relationship dialogue better than anyone else on the show.) Needless to say Grace comes out of it all with her reputation, if anything, enhanced. And with a repaired skull, which is nice. And, perhaps, with a mom and dad who might be starting to reconcile…?

Meantime, Tani’s idiot brother Koa calls her in, because one of his recovering addict friends, Alana, has gone off the grid. Alana is found dead with a needle in her arm. Not so, says Koa; she was into oxy, not heroin. Sure enough, someone murdered Alana, and Tani and Koa work together to solve the crime, with an assist from Adam. Everyone seems very pleased with Koa, to the point where I started to wonder whether he might be the next chequered-history recruit to the squad. Superior H50 entertainment all round.

It’s Avenge Joe White week on H50. Danny travels to Joe’s ranch, where Steve – rocking, it should be said, a somewhat unconvincing beard; I was half expecting Danny to reach out and give it a sharp tug – has been hiding out for over a month. With Catherine.

Danny thinks they’ve been playing house, but if so it’s a specifically McGarrett-esque form of mummies and daddies: also on the premises is the Danish lawyer of Omar Hassan, the man behind Joe’s death. The lawyer has been beaten to a pulp in an attempt to find out where Hassan is. Which, y’know, credit where due: I mean, I too am a lawyer, and I’d totally give my clients up at the first polite enquiry from the Big Kahuna. Maybe they breed their legal professionals tougher in Denmark.

Anyway, Steve finds out that Hassan is in Laos, and puts his squad together: Catherine and Danny, of course, plus Junior (“Teams! Hooyah!”). And a couple of old friends: Wade “Gutch” Gutches, who we’ve seen once or twice before; and, meeting them in Laos, Harry Langford, the Lidl James Bond himself. You know how this goes: a looped security feed, guns, a stand-off, and so on. Steve gets to Hassan, but doesn’t kill him: what he really wants is the whereabouts of Agent Greer, former squeeze and current traitor. And he gets it, meaning that Catherine can shoot her predecessor in Steve’s bed, a task which she undertakes with ill-disguised relish. Which of us hasn’t, at some point, wanted…? I’ll leave that thought there.

There’s a B-plot in which two bros successfully bid for the contents of a storage locker, and discover themselves to be the proud owners of a human skeleton. (I think I’ve seen this in another show before, but can’t place it.) The bros are themselves killed, and the bones taken, before Noelani can get there to examine the scene. It’s really only intended as an occasional distraction from the main event, but it helps to round out a very good episode.

Hello – hello my little faces and have a lovely Sunday. I hope that you had an awesome week, that you are all well and happy and that you watched a lot of episodes… Let’s see what I watched this week.

THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS.

Shadowhunters ( 3×13 )
Our favorite ( not ) vampire girl, Heidi, is back and Jordan with the other Praetor Lupus hunting her down. She went to Rafael’s old clan, on the Hotel Dumort but they didn’t accept to help her something that made her even madder. She compeled a Mundane to tell Jordan that the other vampires help Heidi in order to start a war between vampires and werewolves ( and she made it ) On the other hand, my poor girl Izzy after she gave her blood to save Simon has a bad time with her addiction but Alec is there to help her. Today, they go to meet a Shadowhunter who wants to tell them about a secret project who tortures Downwolders but someone killed him before he could tell them more. Maryse knows about this though that asks her children to stay away from the Clave, afraid for their lives. Luke and Maryse spent some time together when he asks her to help him open a Warlock’s safe and they end up kissing each other ( THANK THE ANGEL ). Jace and Clary trying to remove her mark without any luck and Maia broke up with Simon in order to be her pack’s Alfa ( yes Queen ). Jordan went to say his goodbyes to Maia but the vampires attacked them and he got hurt when he shielded Maia with his body ( he did something good for once ) and they hid up on the storage. Jace and Clary slept together for the first time but this beautiful and sweet scene end it with Jonathan send an “I miss you” message to his sister cutting their hands. ( Jonathan you’re a creep, you know that… right? )

Arrow ( 7×15 )
One more awesome episode!! Last week they announced that the 8th season ( the next one ) will be the last one and it will have only 10 episodes but I am not ready! The 7th season is so cool until now and every episode is better than the next one. On this one, we saw how Mia and William, in the future, managed to hear the microcassette that Felicity left them, telling them how much she and Oliver loved them both. We also saw how Team Arrow started working with the police officers and Dinah figured out that she lost her “cry”. Felicity made the Bunker operated again and with Oliver told about their baby to Diggle. Ben Turner ( Bronze Tiger ) told Laurel that the person who killed Ricardo Diaz ( ’cause the bastard is dead! ) was the “New Green Arrow” and we met his, adorable, son. Connor.! ( Yeap this cutie pie is the future Connor, who we learned that he is the adopted son of Lyla and John’s. )

I also watched: Legacies ( 1×11 – 1×13 ), The walking dead ( 9×13 ), Hawaii five-0 ( 9×18 & 9×19 ), The Flash ( 5×15 & 5×16 ), Downton Abbey ( 6×05 – 6×09 ), Macgyver ( 3×17 ), The passage ( 1×01 – 1×03 ).

Let me know what you watched this week and don’t forget to tell me what you think about the post in the comments below or on my facebook page. Also, if you like my posts just follow my blog through WordPress or your e-mail account ( you’ll find the following buttons on your right in this post ). Until next time…

xx Marilita.

Within the first couple of minutes of this blistering episode we’ve had an “oorah!”, a go-bag, and Joe White. Hey-ho, I thought, I’m going to like this one. And I did. Hired assassins are taking out the six-man SEAL team which did the thing in Marrakesh to which Agent Greer alluded a few episodes ago. Three are already down, leaving Steve, Joe, and a dude named Cole. The thing in Marrakesh, incidentally, was the taking out of a high-value target, on the orders of Greer. It might not even have been legal, apparently. Huh. Steve does at least ten illegal things before breakfast most days, because that’s how the Big K rolls, bitches.

Anyway, Steve is attacked at home – bizarrely, they only send one assassin; haven’t they heard of Steve? – and survives, chasing his badly-wounded assailant off. Grover starts to track him down. Steve and Joe, realising that this needs to be ended, hatch a plan, and in furtherance of it Steve visits Greer, who seems to be quarterbacking the whole thing from prison. According to her, the people behind Operation Get The SEALS are “rich, motivated, and ruthless”. Ooh! (It’s the son of the high-value target, now himself a wealthy shipping magnate in Denmark, who is funding the revenge operation.) Steve drops a couple of indiscreet hints, hoping to draw the assassins out, and he and Joe then retreat to Joe’s rather gorgeous Montana ranch. Cole turns up for the lolz.

Although Steve has made it clear that the rest of the Five-0 has to stay away from the Last Battle itself, they help a little. Grover captures the guy, half-dead through blood loss, who tried to kill Steve. You must help me, he says. You’re police. Only thing I must do, replies Grover magnificently, is “stay black and die”. And I’m not police; I’m Five-0. (Once again I have to reflect on the fact that people from all over the word are supposed to know about the existence and legal powers of this local police force.) Adam’s contribution is, of course, to talk to an old Yakuza contact.

So Steve, Joe, Cole, and a shit-ton of guns settle in at Joe’s ranch, and wait for the baddies, who duly appear. Inevitably, a huge battle ensues. The assassins are all killed, but at a price. Cole dies. Joe is hit. There’s a surgeon on the next ranch, he says to Steve; can you take me there? The only means of transport is equine, so Steve and Joe saddle up, leaving behind a ranch whose market value has just dropped considerably. But on the way to the surgeon, Joe calls a halt; there is no surgeon. He’s dying and he knows it.

And he’s right: before a beautiful Montanan sunset, Joe White breathes his last, in the arms of his most successful, uh, “tadpole”. It’s quite a big deal; Terry O’Quinn has been around this show for years, and now there’s no-one left to call Steve “son”. I thought this was the best episode of the season so far, and I fully expect Steve to go apeshit next week.

Urban vigilante Gene Wahale, who styles himself ‘The Night Sentinel’, takes down a drug dealer, all the while filming his heroics for his YouTube channel. Unfortunately, he is then killed. Perhaps by one of the 37 people he had subjected to a citizens’ arrest? Nope, nor at the hand of his younger rival in vigilanteism, ‘Guardian’.

At this point, one viewer at least was wondering whether the death of one of these idiots was an entirely bad thing; a view, perhaps, tacitly shared by Lieutenant Daniel Williams. “Something’s wrong with you”, he observes, if you want to “put on tights and fight crime”. This leads to an impassioned debate with Steve about superheroes, during which Danny is very much on the side of comic book characters with superhuman powers, as opposed to Batman who “inherit(ed) money and bought a bunch of Batmobiles”.

When their investigation brings them into contact with Honolulu’s comic book community, I feared the worst. However, against my expectations the episode turned out to be ridiculous but goofy fun, and I enjoyed it a lot. I still think ‘Guardian’ needs to get laid stat, mind you.

And meantime, another long-running plot arc is brought to the most abrupt of ends, when Yakuza banker Kimura is dragged before a room full of oyubun; it was he who organised the hit on Noriko and then tried to frame Adam. In recognition of his long service, Kimura is offered Yakuza justice or Five-0 justice, whereupon Adam steps out of the shadows to arrest him. Once again working with the Yakuza, Adam?
