Dear Mister Darwin, yes, your theory has some exceptions and
these three men we had the unpleasure to meet in this episode definitely prove
All the three of them, along with their “lovely” wives
showed us what a marriage shouldn’t ever be like…. but really, what people shouldn’t ever be like. Eww… they gave me chills and, since the acting and writing was meant to give us that feeling… good job!
But the other plot of this episode, the one involving Jerry,
Chin, Kono and Kame, was definitely more the kind of stuff that I like!
Kame’s marketing strategies keep entertaining us since the first season… the man is so
funny and adorable and his interaction with Jerry is quite priceless.
Kame’s face when Jerry called him “Pops”,
Jerry’s helmet with Kame’s face on it, Kame asking Jerry to wear that t-shirt
on stage to make amends for the missed delivery… it was all funny, it made me
And then Jerry’s rant to Chin, about all the bad stuff that
happened to him since he started helping the team… if not a badge, I think he
deserves at least a salary for his collaboration! He’s not a cop, but his skills proved many times to be
really useful to Five-0.
And that Max/Grover scene, with Max talking about “the
Cancun incident of 1994”… aw Max, you bad boy! I’m imagining the moment when
Sabrina got to see for the first time that secret and regrettable tattoo!
I liked the Steve/Danny scene at the smart-table, the
smiles, the looks, the teasing and banter, and I loved the scene after that (when we are shown many other
exceptions to the theory of evolution), with Steve telling Danny “Promise Gracie
will get her college degree online” and Danny replying: “Done. Why would you even bring
up her name here?”… that was simply adorable! The fact that Steve cares for
Grace as much as Danny is so heartwarming.
I was impressed when Chin managed to figure that someone was
behind him because of the look on that woman’s face… all instinct… and Danny,
too, finding the bad guy among a crowd of people! It’s always
fascinating to see these characters doing their job so well.
And seeing those people in the slave-labor camp crushed my
The ending scene was really good, with Chin confiding to
Steve his worries, asking him for and advice… I still believe Adam is a good
guy and I hope the danger he is in won’t take him away from Kono… and from us. I really like him.
And of course I loved all the guys showing up for our hero
Jerry and being proud of him… oh, and looking so good… especially Steve and Danny,
of course, who are the eighth wonder of the world together… pure perfection.
I’m already really looking forward to the next episode for several
reasons… it looks like a wonderful one.
