(new) Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

the new Hawaii Five-0 on CBS


Just as showrunner Peter M. Lenkov had warned us, CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 this Friday night closed Season 9 with the fate of a major character left up in the air.

Worse, the shocking twist sprung out of almost nowhere — unless, that is, you totally saw it coming.

The bulk of Season 9’s final episode revolved around the hunt for Aaron Wright, whom the team realized (too late) had pulled the wool over their eyes in playing the victim last week. Rather, he orchestrated the office assault he somehow “survived,” and now he has his hands on the code for a deadly “cyber weapon” which he intends to sell to the highest bidder.

The team chases one lead on Wright’s whereabouts after Jerry gleans from a security cam video the cell phone keys he pressed to call the buyer — but that turns out to be a dead (and almost deadly) end, when “Wright” turns out to be a paid stand-in.

Then they get a bead on the motorcycle Wright is using, and an extended, high-speed chase ensues. Despite some deft maneuvering down alleyways and what not, Wright eventually takes a spill, after which he disappears into a mall. Further confounding Five-0, he hacks the emergency alert system to broadcast to the masses an incoming missile warning.

Five-0 knows that all the major transport hubs are shut down and on the lookout for Wright. So how does he plan to get away? When Jerry notices that the hacker has been logging lotsa hours on a flight simulator program, they realize he plans to fly himself away on a PJ. Danny and Steve arrive too late at the airstrip to do much other than play a game of chicken on the runway. But Jerry then saves the day by using code (created by Aaron’s brother, no less) to hack the plane and dump his fuel, forcing him to land. Wright gloats, though, that Five-0 could very well see him again someday, depending on how badly the government needs his particular set of skills.

Elsewhere in the hour: Junior frets that his MIA father intends to do someone — perhaps himself — harm, in the wake of Junior opting not to ask that the drunk driver who killed Maya be denied parole. Luckily, Junior finds Dad safe and sound, then dumps the bullets from his revolver.

But there is still a gun to go off, courtesy of a visitor to HQ.

As established earlier in the hour, Omar Hassan’s wife wants to swing by with her young son, to make amends for her husband’s reign of terror and end the cycle of violence. And… Five-0 allows it, seeing zero red flags. Yet sure enough, after she arrives and Steve shakes hands with both her and the kid, Hassan’s wife shoves her son out of the way, whips out a plastic gun and fires it in the direction of an off-camera McGarrett!

Did McGarrett get shot? Or did someone jump in the way to take the bullet for him? Find out when Season 10 arrives in the fall, airing Fridays at 8/7c!

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Hawaii Five-0, The Flash, New Amsterdam and The Big Bang Theory!

1 | Did Hawaii Five-0‘s latest product demo (“How many days ’til Christmas, Cortana?”) out-shill the previous one (with the beachside photo retouching)?

2 | Was it fun (if almost jarring) to see Blue Bloods‘ Baez be silly, doing an impression of Erin? Also, what are we to make of Officer Witten attending the wedding of her partner and their superior?

3 | In Lucifer Episode 5, when Eve went adult novelty shopping, how was there not a comment a la “This one company is named after me and Adam”? And in Episode 9, what was Amenadiel and Linda’s plan with the doctor if Charlie indeed came out sporting wings?

Jon Hamm SNL4 | On Saturday Night Live, was Jon Hamm supposed to pop out after he was mentioned by Pete Davidson’s mom during Weekend Update? Or was his cameo during the goodnights meant to be an understated callback? And on a scale of one to Ashlee Simpson, just how obvious was Jonas Brothers’ lip-syncing?

5 | Which once-powerful woman had a more humbling downfall: Game of Thrones‘ Cersei Lannister, or Veep‘s Selina Meyer?

6 | To echo many a JAG fan watching NCIS: Los Angeles: “Are we supposed to believe that Harm has been stuck at the rank of captain for the last 14 years?”

7 | Now that Killing Eve‘s Villanelle is working with Eve, we’re just going to forget about all those murders she committed? And didn’t anyone but Eve witness Villanelle shoving that woman into traffic on a busy city street?

Flash Season 5 Finale8 | How many times is The Flash/Barry going to let Thawne get away? And after this week’s emotional Arrow and Flash finales, we ask: Who’s the best crier in the Arrowverse?

9 | Is NCIS‘ Ducky now some sort of Swiss Army knife, doing financial forensics in one scene, then interpreting body language in another? (BTW wasn’t Jack in the office at that time?) Also, was “Honesty” playing in the bar as Gibbs rued his secret a bit on the nose?

10 | Is it just us or does NCIS: New Orleans‘ Pride seem to be on some sort of hallucinatory death’s doorstep every season finale? (And who are these viewers who enjoy watching imaginary “journeys” with small stakes?)

11 | Which potential New Amsterdam death would destroy you most: Georgia, Lauren or Helen?

12 | After Tuesday’s bittersweet, silly episode of The Kids Are Alright, how many of you were Constance Wu-level perturbed that ABC cancelled the nostalgia trip instead of the lower-rated Fresh Off the Boat?

RHOBH13 | Was The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ flashback to literally “one minute earlier” a little much, even for a Bravo reality show?

14 | Why did Fosse/Verdon suddenly age up Bob and Gwen’s daughter Nicole about 10 years, when only a few months had passed since the last episode?

15 | Come again? Snowpiercer, a dystopian drama, will now air on “Very Funny” TBS?? Do brands mean nothing anymore?

16 | Wouldn’t this week’s Chicago Fire have been a good opportunity to revisit Otis’ PTSD from this season’s high-rise fire crossover?

Justin Hartley Jane the Virgin17 | Jane the Virgin fans, how surprised were you to actually see Justin Hartley in the flesh after Rogelio dropped his name? (FYI: Hartley years ago starred in executive producer Jennie Snyder Urman’s short-lived Emily Owens, M.D.)

18 | Did any Good Fight watchers find themselves Googling “lightning balls” after watching the finale, to see if such a terrifying weather phenomenon exists vs. being a figment of Robert and Michelle King’s increasingly eccentric imagination? (News flash: It’s a thing!)

19 | Did you expect Big Bang ‘s long-dormant/neglected elevator to be so bright and clean inside? (Maybe they also renovated it while repairing?) Also, were you expecting the audience to have a bigger reaction when they revealed Howard and Bernadette’s children for the very first time?

20 | Of all the miniature versions of the Big Bang characters we glimpsed on Young Sheldon, which one would you most like to see get their ownYoung Sheldon-like spinoff?

21 | Could S.W.A.T. really not manage to have Bre Blair to appear in the finale, at the big award ceremony for Annie’s husband Deacon? (That “kids have strep” excuse was… thin.)

22 |Did Station 19 spend on its vivid, harrowing wildfire — flurries of burning embers and all — the money that Grey’s Anatomy did not spend on its fog?

23 | Of Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s many returning characters, which were you most excited to see: Caleb the Cannibal, The Vulture, C.J. or Madeline Wuntch?

24 | Why did SVU‘s Olivia have the victim’s parents identify her via a photo on an iPad instead of calling them down to the morgue like usual? And to put this in legal terms: How “strenuously did you object” to Peter Stone’s outta-nowhere reasoning that he had to leave because he was afraid he’d keep putting Olivia’s well-being ahead of his duty?

25 | Did TV really have to adopt the movie industry’s annoying practice of opening trailers with 5-second “micro-trailers”? Ugh.

First of all, the latest news for today is that #H50 will air an hour earlier at 20h00 on Friday nights when the new season start in September 2019.

It will lead in Magnum and then Blue Bloods to round off the evenings as usual. Interesting move and it also holds the question of when MacGyver will air once it start in Mid-Season.

Now for some great screencaps of last Friday’s episode:

First season Steve …..

Steve today …

Will be interesting to see where the season finale takes us.

I have a few theories about the cliffhanger that we might get, but I doubt if we will get any real surprises once the new season start. It will most probably be business as usual …… 🙄 😦

Just about 8 weeks left to see who will return to start shooting on the new season!

One month after an arsonist set fire to 13 vehicles in Edmonton’s Whyte Avenue area, the hectic night is set to live on — on a t-shirt.

“It’s kind of like what you would see on a movie poster or a DVD case,” said Jason Blower, an Edmonton illustrator who got to work brainstorming ideas in the days following the fiery incident.

On April 12, people along 104 Street north of Whyte Avenue watched as a man walked up one side of the street and then down the other side, using a jerrycan to light vehicles on fire.

Police confirmed 13 vehicles were damaged, but no injuries were reported.

“For about two weeks, I kind of sat around with the idea kind of mulling around in my brain,” Blower said.

“Then I kind of collected some images for inspiration — and what videos I could — and then I kind of sketched up some stuff.”

The shirt plays on the Hawaii Five-0 television series, with particular attention paid to the two men who have become known as “Hawaiian Shirt Guy” and “Two-by-four Guy.”

The two bystanders helped tackle the suspect inside the Starbucks at the corner of Whyte and 104th, while they waited for Edmonton police to arrive.

“It’s the fact that they were kind of really unusual characters — [of] which we have a few in the city — and that they just stepped up, right? A lot of people would be scared — probably myself included … the guy was pretty out of control,” Blower said.

Proceeds from the shirt will go to the mental health organization We All Believe in You. Blower will take pre-orders for the tribute shirt until the end of May.

Malice Sutton, 22, faces several charges, including 11 counts of arson to property of others and assault with a weapon.

The Five-0 is called out to investigate the murder of a window cleaner, found with his harness cut at the foot of a building. His uniform, though, carries the name of a non-existent company, raising the question of whether he’s just pretending to be a window cleaner… which he is. Sometimes you just don’t connect with an hour of TV, even an episode of a show you like, and I’m afraid the tangled tale of the window cleaner/street artist/political activist left me a little cold. I did, though, like Jerry’s crime scene modelling drone, because I’m always here for a drone.

There’s also an undercooked B-plot, in which Lou and Adam pick up the case of a murder victim who was also robbed, post mortem, of his valuable vintage Aloha shirt. (Brought to you by Bailey’s Antiques and Aloha Shirts, Honolulu.) And… oh, I don’t know, something about Junior’s dead sister. Not feeling it, I’m afraid. Still – and I’m genuinely pleased about this, even if it might not look that way from this review – the show has been renewed for a tenth season, which is good news.
