I’ve always had my doubts about Adam Noshimuri. Everyone seemed remarkably willing to accept that he’d turned his back on the Yakuza in order to clean up the family business. And what is the “family business”, anyway? As far as I can see it could be anything from toy manufacturing to people trafficking. (I freely accept that we might have been told and I’ve forgotten.) Turns out Kono has been wondering about Adam as well, and she tells him that she’s disinclined to marry him until he makes a clean break from the “business”, which after all was founded on generations of gangsta money. Now, quite rightly the Nosh fights back; after all, he doesn’t ask Kono to give up being a cop. And also, he might have pointed out, she knew what she was getting when, in order to find him when he didn’t want to be found, she embarked on her filmed-from-the-neck-up odyssey last season.
But I can’t brood about that too much: there’s a dude with a bullet wound trying to break into a prison. He’s J.C. Dekker, who had been freed from that very prison a few days before, so that he could work as a CI for our old friend Greg Grunberg, making a welcome return to H50, and to Unpopcult in general. And here’s where it all gets a bit Blacklisty: J.C. had been making a deal with “bold, smart, ruthless” master criminal Roman Zednick, who hardly anyone has ever seen. J.C. made contact with Roman but can’t identify him, because he’s suffering from inconvenient temporary amnesia. So can the Five-0 dig Roman out with almost nothing to go on? Without giving too much away, I suspected that all was not as it seemed, but I backed the wrong horse. Not bad, but – Bromance Watch – I really don’t care if Danny’s had to fly somewhere to give stupid evidence in a stupid appealed case. I want more bromance, stat.
