807-FI

8.07 Kau ka ‘ōnohi ali’i i luna

Junior and Adam back up McGarrett when a bank heist in progress forces Steve to make a potentially heartbreaking mistake. Also, Adam is forced to face an empty home without Kono.

CBS translated Kau ka ‘ōnohi ali’i i luna to The Royal Eyes Rest Above

This season we were introduced to some new characters, including Steve’s new 4 legged roommate. We decided that Eddie should be in charge of the rating system this season. An exceptional show will have 5 barks, a great one will have 3 barks, a so-so one will earn one bark, an “eh-what-were-they-thinking” will get a whimper and a super turkey will elicit an Eddie growl. So… let the fun begin.

Finally an episode that meets my criteria for spending a few hours on writing a review. 😉 Guess that is kind of a verdict up front? Oh well.

Let’s just dive right in. We start the episode with Junior on a run, and getting almost hit by a car. And, of course, since this is a TV show, the reckless driver and Junior know each other. It’s clear that there is a story about this two, and we will probably learn about it later on.

Next we see Tani going to a house where her no-good-brother is hanging out with some shady characters. Makes me wonder how she knew that her brother would be there, and how she learned about the raid by HPD. Is it normal procedure to inform Five-0 about such things?

Anyway, she warns her brother and the two drive off just before the police arrives. That also makes me wonder why none of the officers was interested in following the two fleeing people. But OK. 😉

H50 - 807-004

After the credits we go to the airport where me meet Steve who is there to pick up Kono and Adam. Of course, we already know that it will only be Adam. I think they did a good job with the explanation why Adam is coming back, and is not staying with Kono.

I mean, think about it. Kono is most likely not staying in one place, so Adam can’t take any job. If he even would get a job in the first place. So, what is he supposed to do while his wife is out there saving the world? Yep, sarcasm here. I think her story is pretty ridiculous. Not that she’s still on the mainland, but how she left during the season 7 finale. Without telling anyone and without even informing her husband or cousin. But that’s really not important right now.

Some people will hate me for what I’m about to say. I am glad that Kono is out of the picture. Chin, too. I wish the actors all the best, but I think it’s a win for H50 that they left. Their stories were boring, uninspiring, and didn’t add much to the show. At least during the last couple of years. So, I said it. I am glad they are gone and that we have two new, fresh characters. Who will hopefully get good storylines.

Junior got a good start, in my eyes. Not so sure about Tani. I like them both though.

But back to Steve, who is always my main focus on the show and in these reviews. Shallow, I now, but I loved the blue shirt. The little light triangle on the side did it for me. LOL

So, he buys two leis in hope to give at least one to Kono. Yeah, Buddy, not gonna happen. After a short greeting they are off to find something to eat, while having a nice conversation in the car. I always said that I liked Adam back when he was the kinda baddie, taking care of his father’s business, kidnapping Joe White. Back then he had potential, and I really hoped he would make a great villain. Unfortunately, he met Kono and the snooze fest began. Kono and Adam were, for me, the most boring couple.

BUT, I like IAD, and I enjoyed Adam in this episode. Still think he would have been better as the villain, but with this version of Adam I can live very well. 🙂

H50 - 807-007

After the brief encounter with the very pregnant ex, Junior keeps running almost to the point of collapse; makes one wonder what he’s running from. Guess there a some demons we might also learn about later on. He spots four suspicious guys, and immediately calls Steve. Good boy. 🙂 Well trained. Oh, and let me mention that I love Junior’s “Yes, Sir”. Finally someone actually showing some respect.

And of course, Steve gets over there right away. With Adam in tow.

Let’s take a small break and go to HQ to watch a video of Tani getting her brother out of the to be raided house. I’m not sure what I think about Grover helping Tani to keep something from their boss. Or did he do it to give her the chance to come clean about it?

More importantly, where did he get the video footage from, and who else knows about it? Is this evidence of a crime? Did Tani actually commit a crime by picking up her brother? And do I even want to think about the time frame? When the heck did this go down? Just this morning, right? And now Grover has the video and all? Very iffy, if you ask me. Well, nobody does… so.

Back to the bank. Where I had a good laugh. Look out for all the people standing around watching the scene being filmed. Not very subtle. 🙂

H50 - 807-013

Steve takes a look at the car, the hotwired car, and looks inside the bank. It’s more than obvious that they have a robbery in progress.

H50 - 807-014

Adam points out the obvious, why did they leave the car behind, without someone guarding it? Not the normal behavior of bank robbers, I guess. So, after a short discussion, they call for back-up, and Steve prepares to enter the bank.

One question should be allowed. Why the heck didn’t they just pick the lock? Would have been a lot quieter. Of course, less spectacular.

So, Steve enters the back through the back door, and expects Junior and Adam to wait for back-up. Yeah right.

Loved Junior in this. He follows orders, but only direct orders, not suggestions like the plan is to wait. That’s not an order. 😉 If you think about it, the scenes with Adam getting the gun and Junior picking Steve’s safe are a bit ridiculous, but I really liked them. It was fun watching. They made a great team.

I also loved the explosion, and the aftermath. Another great wake-up scene by Alex. He is so darn good at them. And now this episode drifts into the “don’t think about it, just enjoy the ride” territory. Why the hell didn’t the robbers came in from the outside sometime during the night? I mean, they drilled that big ass tunnel without anyone knowing about it. Don’t you think someone should have noticed the baddies drilling that kind of tunnel? Seemed a bit unbelievable that they would be able to pull it off without anyone hearing anything. But they obviously did. Makes me wonder why they didn’t finish it unnoticed.

Guess because we wouldn’t have gotten one of the most ridiculous car/foot/chases, whatever you wanna call it.

Steve is in pursuit in the underground tunnels, and Adam follows him, driving like a madman. I mean, seriously, what the heck was that about? Steve was on foot, underground. No need for Adam to drive across town. 🙂 And how was Jerry able to trace Steve’s cell? Isn’t it amazing how they never have cell phone reception as soon as they leave the city limits, but have perfect reception underground?

OK, let’s get to THE scene. Steve shooting the cop. “That’s not a cop, Steve.” That’s what I shouted at the screen. What would a lone cop doing down there? And why wouldn’t he call out? Besides, the shooting was justified. Steve might see that differently since he didn’t have a visual. And I can understand his point. But he got shot at. Do you only shoot back when you can clearly see your target? Should he have considered that there might have been innocent bystanders in that situation? I don’t think so. But whatever the case, the shooting gave us some great Steve scenes. Loved them.

H50 - 807-033

But before that, let’s take a look at the rescue drive back and the scene at the hospital. Seemed to me that the hospital wasn’t that into saving that guy. I mean, they declared him dead in the hallway. They didn’t even take him to a trauma room. That was really rushed, and felt totally wrong.

Now we can enjoy Alex and his great acting.

H50 - 807-039

H50 - 807-044

After the emo scenes, Five-0 goes to work at the smart table to figure out how the baddies could have known how much money was in the vault. It was clear pretty soon that it must have been an inside job.

H50 - 807-046

So, we get the usual blue room stuff and the talks at the table. Where they also figure out that cop wasn’t a cop. Yeah, told you so.

Question again, why did he take off his mask? That made no sense whatsoever. They must have known that there would be cameras. That was just bad writing. I mean, they could have figured out that the cop wasn’t a cop way more easy than with this stupid move. But whatever.

After that, one of the bad guys decided to march into HQ and kill the guy in the blue room. How did he manage to get in there? How did he figure out the combination? All these little things drive me nuts. Because if you do something in a story it has to make sense, it has to be possible. You can’t just let the guy walk into the blue room and kill someone just because you want to. You need to make it possible. And the writers just don’t. I’m one of those people always questioning the HOW of a scene. Maybe I shouldn’t, but I can’t help it.

H50 - 807-050

Of course Steve and Lou are after the shooter, and wonder oh wonder Steve actually hit the moving target. A rare occasion on Five-0. 😉

And really? All the baddies are in the car, with the money? Why would they do that? They are not very clever, aren’t they.

H50 - 807-052

Anyway, nice scene with the flipped car and the team standing around it.

H50 - 807-053

I hope Tani has learned her lesson. Confiding in Steve is the first step into the right direction. At least I hope she will tell him about her brother and what she did.

H50 - 807-057

Another nice scene with Steve and Adam. I must say, I was really surprised about how much I enjoyed Adam in this episode. I hope it will continue.

And we end the episode with Junior watching a video. I hope we will learn more about him in the coming episodes.

H50 - 807-058

So this was my first review for the new season. I now, still not the usual snark and sarcasm, but I am easing back in. Hopefully the next episodes will be equally as good as this one.

Thanks for reading.

The show made it to its 175th episode!

Congratulations to all involved.

It is a huge achievement for any show these days and definitely a great accomplishment. And from the looks of it, Hawaii Five-0 might be looking at a few more seasons to come. Who knows, they might even double it and in the end will reach 350+ episodes. 🙂

This week’s story might not have been as BIG as those for the 100th or 150th episodes – but Alex definitely entertained us with some wonderful acting.

Just to clear up some speculation about the filming and the number of this episode – it was always filmed and planned as Episode 175. Other episodes might have been broadcast out of sequence but not this one – it was filmed as Episode 8:07 as far as I could see. It is a pity that the new regular cast members Noelani, Duke and Kamekona did not make it into this episode, but it is understandable that the story did not need their involvement. Together with the fact that this was Episode 175, I can also see why this episode, rather than last week’s farce, was shown at SOTBthis year.

Today I just share a few of my own thoughts while watching the show …. no Koala Smartass#sorry . But as usual our post is just an excuse to post some pretty Alex pictures.

  • Junior is running and waiting patiently at the traffic light (I saw the EP said that he is the heart of the show now and taking the “reigns” – so it is good that they start with him, I guess). Somebody nearly runs him over with her car. Now that’s what I call running into each other by accident (or near accident that is. 😀 )

  • You can see, there is some history there (Leila and Juniorfirst loves maybe?) ….. but this history is highly pregnant now. Doubt if it was Junior’s doing, because he was a war hero before he came home. So I guess their history is history or maybe not.

  • So we saw this next bit on the sneak peeks – so the surprise of it is kind of not there. 😦 … Taniseems to know where her brother hangs out and also got word that the place would be raided that morning, because she pitched up just in time to get him out of there. The perks of working for an elite task force I guess – some ‘insider trading‘ of sorts. But she did not do anything to prevent the raid or warn any of those there apart from her brother. Is that then still a deadly sin or real police obstruction? Maybe just some ‘insider saving‘?

  • Ah, happy Steve is meeting somebody at the airport – 2 people it seems! He seems really exited about whoever it is. He is expecting the Noshimori’s, but only Adam appears, without Kono?
  • Steve is leiing (is that a word? 😀 ) Adam. Giving another man flowers – surely Danny will be jealous?
  • I kind of think that they have created a good explanation why Adam is back without Kono. She is busy saving the world and he is bored (And I wonder who is paying the bills?). I can not find fault with that. Steve and Adam’sconversation makes me think – Unlike Cath, Kono got the ring, but she still decided to leave her man and follow her passion to do something for humanity – a legacy as Steve calls it. Men sometimes neglect their families and loved ones to follow a calling, and they are hailed as heroes most of the time for doing it. Are these women also heroes? Is Doris not also maybe a hero? I kind of really like it that Doris is mentioned in the Steve/ Adam conversation. (I know I am in a minority, but I still like Doris)

  • Adam and Kono and babies. Doris says things happen when they are supposed to happen …. Wonder if we will ever see her again? Dead or alive? Or see her hold Steve’schild?

  • Junior is still running – and is really tired. But not too tired to be very observant. He sees a suspicious car without number plates in front of a bank and 4 suspicious guys getting out. Seems like he is a good detective already.

  • Eddieand a Jedi mind trick to mesmerize Steve – now that is a great idea for any fangirl to try …..

  • Junior is wise, he calls Steve. He was right, it is a bank robbery, but the duffel bags were not empty – there were some BIG guns in there.

  • Okay – now we see the 2nd sneak peek. Tani and Grover watching her on video “saving” her brother from being arrested. Not sure where Grovergot the footage and who else knows about this. And we all know what happened to Gabriel after Chin cut him some slack – he became a vicious killer and a gangster.

  • Grover deletes the footage. But is that the only copy?

  • Junior and Adam. I find Junior and Adam’s dialogue somewhat strange. Junior lives with Steve – surely Steve would have told him that he was going to the airport to pick up Kono and Adam. Junior sounds like he did not know that?
  • Okay Steve – this is not looking good. There are some tied up people in the bank, but no robbers in sight?

  • Trust the ex gangster boy to know that a getaway car would have a driver and would be running. Or maybe Adam just watched to many cop shows while he was waiting for Kono in the hotel rooms. But still, it is strange that that there is no getaway driver, I agree.

  • And there we miss it again. Steve changing from his normal shirt to his T-shirt with his kevlar right there on in the streets of Honolulu. 😦 (Just want to add here that I really like the shape or cut of the shirts Steve is wearing this season. It shapes nicely onAlex’s gorgeous body)

  • This is also not new – sneak peek 3 – Steve and the non-taskforce back-up, breaks down the back door and he sneaks into the bank from the back or the bottom or whatever. Of course Adam and Junior did not listen to him, and both follow Steve inside. I was just wondering, who was watching the getaway car and the front door while they were all down there – the robbers could easily have left on the street while they were busy. Normally a bank robbery is a quick job, isn’t it? If they were no longer inside the bank, I would have thought that they walked out the front while our heroes were downstairs in the parking garage breaking down doors and not in the vault.

  • That’s neat – the vault explodes and after the bank manager opens it, they find a freshly opened pre-dug getaway tunnel inside the vault. My question is, why did they even go in through the bank, why not just shoot the hole open at night and steal the money from the outside, if they were that close to the inside?

  • LOL – Junior just remembered that he missed a test. I have done some crazy things to get out of writing a test, but spotting a bank robbery, now that is genius 😀

  • How can Steve move so fast underground, that Adam needs to drive like a maniac to track him? And how can Jerry even track him down there?
  • Wow, Steve is a better shot when he shoots in the dark than usually in broad daylight – but oops it’s a cop

  • Either the gangster in Adam is coming out, or it is Steve’s truck that inspires him to be so wild! Adam might have Danny’s dialogue of concerns during this episode, but he sure drives like McGarrett.
  • Now they are suddenly out of mid-town in a field picking up Steve and the half dead “cop” coming up from underground?

  • They pronounced the wounded guy dead a bit quick? There in the hallway? Not really trying very hard? (Maybe we have all been watching too many hospital show over the year? )
  • How did they so quickly get the finger print of the bank teller inside the vault analysed – but the dead ‘cop’ has not been identified yet? And normally the HPD cops have their names on their uniforms? Why is Steveworried about a cop that died, which they have not even ID’d yet, because if they did it correctly, they would have known he was not a real cop. Poor Steve went emo for nothing. (But I guess they did give Alex a chance to show his brilliance)
  • Yikes – so the blue room is not every safe after all?

  • They still do not know who deposited the money that was stolen – I guess that is where Adam will come in soon. To infiltrate the gangster world? I like Steve and Adamtogether. (I am thinking of writing something about the bond between them in a different post – their fathers were murdered by the same man after all).

All in all I guess this was the best episode for the season thus far. And as quite a few people said at SOTB, the new blood added a new spark to the show. Some young fresh and eager talent. And also the genius idea of adding a K9 (#McEddieForever). All of the new cast, Ian included as regular cast, are giving Alex a fresh opportunity to do his thing. I do hope that they give the newly added regular local cast also some better stories. Kamekona had his chance already, but we haven’t seen much of Duke or Noelani yet. Alex really bonds well with all of them.
