Since I hadn't seen the first showing of last night's repeat of Hawaii Five-O, I was glad they'd given it another run. It was tense with Chin getting kidnapped by a creepy Baldwin brother. Although the first scene was awesome with both Danny and Steve punching the Baldwin brother in the face. Who hasn't wanted to do that a time or two?
Then we have our Romeo and Juliet romance with Kono and her bad boy boyfriend. You knew it was going to come down to that---where she sneaks around to see what nefarious things he's really up to, even though he's claiming to go legit. I can already see this is going to end badly.
Poor Chin waking up in prison. I think that would be a recurring nightmare for a cop. Holy cow, though, when Chin is thrown into that laundry room and that ginormous prisoner/crooked cop walked in? Edge of my seat right there. But, we have our resident cooperative jailbird to the rescue. I love them working together. Sang Min is so funny and gets a lot of great lines.
The prison riot was awesome/horrible. The look on Steve's face when he realizes Chin is in the prison was really well done. He knows he has to get Chin out of there fast or he's a dead man. And Steve McGarrett hates feeling helpless. (His concern for Kono and not giving up on Chin was awww-worthy.) The whole tone was spot-on with everyone wanting to help Chin, but knowing he's on his own. Loved it. And the showdown with Kaleo? Wow.
Although I have to say it was more than unrealistic that the three of them could go up against a prison riot like they did. And Chin only wanted to save the cute nurse? What about the guards? I guess you can't save/help everyone. I did like that Sang Min got away. He is an interesting character for sure.
Lots of action, lots of great lines, and a happy ending. Something for everyone, right?
What did you watch last night?
