Hawaii Five-0 s2 ep 11
The Five-0 are being publicly praised for a huge drugs seizure when a school bus is seized. It’s the baddies, and they want their cocaine back. There’s the usual deadlines and “we don’t negotiate with terrorists”/”you gotta give them what they want” to-and-fro, and a Usual Suspects-y switch. But this was above-average H50, even if there was little sense of danger – Steve’s not going to let any schoolkids get killed on his watch, is he? Meantime Joe’s taken early retirement as a result of last week’s mini-invasion of North Korea, and is on season-long plot arc manoeuvres again, his motives remaining murky. I’m saying good guy.
Bromance Watch – with a bus full of kids in danger, there isn’t much time for bromance this week, not even for Danny and Steve to discuss whether they would perhaps like a family themselves one day. Which leaves space for a bonus feature…
Kono Watch! – Once again this week, Hawaii’s favourite support cop is mostly on research duties and being nice to the families of victims. Remarkably, she does get to head out into the field at one point, then runs away when the nasty big men start to fire their guns.
