Did I miss how Sergeant Liu got out of the stockade or did they just time jump past her case?

At the end of the previous episode Steve called the governor and got the charges dropped. Then he went to confront Rob Morrow just before he got blown up.

They probably could have solved it by comparing the serial numbers of the bills Liu took pictures of being dug out of the ground to the bills found in her apartment, but I think I’m putting more thought into it than the writers did.

Pretty sure Danno has officially passed over into creepy old man territory for perving on coeds at the park.  At the very least if you’re going to go to a public space to ogle attractive women decades your junior don’t be so obvious about it.  And for heaven’s sake don’t literally point at the hot chicks.

Well usually Danny is the butt of Steve's antics and putting him through a lot. For once I am glad that it was the other way around. Despite Eddie getting hurt. But really Steve can be pretty mean spirited at Danny. 

Wonder how long the date with Steve and the vet will last? 

Knew that Steve called the Governor to get the charges dropped. Quinn fits in with the rest of the team and in a heartbeat!

Despite some ridiculous things on the show and Aaron Wright back...Give it 7/10!

More dumb stuff: Why would Army CID, which is exactly what it sounds on the tin, be involved in providing close protection for a civilian federal protectee?

How does a state Executive (the Governor) exert any influence over federal law enforcement (Army CID) who have arrested and are holding a person within federal jurisdiction (Quinn is a soldier)?

I see Eddie is still on the path to become this show's Lassie. One day he'll be able to handle that fancy touch table in HQ with his paws in order to rescue the whole team. I'd watch that.

Did they actually show that or is it a watcher is the 10th year speculating/ filling in the blanks for the show?  I just remember the arrest, "everything will be okay Quien" then Steve at Rob Morrows house alone to tell him this ain't over. Is Keiko Mahoe/Rosalind Chao still governor

Of course they wouldn't except Sergeant Liu was CID those initials are on the production's props. Any other year as soon as the spy was identified the FBI would have swooped in but then decided to let LT Commander McGarrett and 5-0 run point

I enjoyed this episode.  I actually like the Aaron Wright character in small doses like this one.  Danny was beyond stupid throwing the ball towards a dog they did not know.  Eddie was off-leash so the incident would totally be Steve's fault (never approach a dog you don't know).  Grrrrr Danny... Eddie is probably my favorite character on this show (his facial expressions when Steve was debating asking the veterinarian for a date were beyond priceless [yes, I know there is nothing beyond priceless, but still...]).  One of my dogs would chase a ball no matter where I threw it (the other not so much), so it's on me to be safe with where I throw it-same thing for Danny.

I liked the set up of this episode.  A real misdirection with the kidnapping, so an interesting start to the episode.  I wish they hadn't killed the spy as I would have been interested in a future episode with her as I found her entertaining.  Oh well.

Wow that high school story about Danny on the PA system was all kinds of creepo. Going to the dog park to pick up women in your mid to late 40s is also kind of sad too.

I'm a Katrina Law fan, so I'm thrilled she's got scenes outside of Steve.

This show is what it is, but they've done a good job with Joey Lawrence. He's a good recurring character.

A little much with the tiny Asian woman *killing* all of the CID though. I mean it was like 6 people and no one got a shot off while she was sliding 100 feet across the floor?

Five-0 can do literally everything, but can't shoot an assailant nonfatally?

Yeah, that was really wrong and dangerous for Eddie. That dog was still on the leash so he wasn't ready to socialize.

Yeah, this episode required more suspension of disbelief than usual and it was clunky right off the bat because they cast an obvious adult as what we were supposed to initially think was a 15-year-old, and that killed the surprise when it turned out she really wasn't a kid. It did make me laugh though when she left a trail of dead CID guys and then Tani and Junior rolled up in her Chevy Spark or whatever that tin can is that she drives, like, oh okay, now the North Korean assassin is in trouble.

There needs to be a dog Emmy so Eddie can be rewarded for those faces he made while Steve was dithering over asking out the vet.

And then they shoot her dead when the actual trained military couldn't get one shot off.

I'll give the 5-0 Task force the benefit of the doubt here. They were Army CID Agents meaning Warrant Officer and Staff Sergeant detectives, maybe as a MP earlier in their career a convoy they were escorting came under a direct fire attack.. Unless you are in the special forces where you shoot all the time your going to the firing range a couple of times a year is no match at all for the 20 or more firefights a year 5-0 gets into

I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed this and sadly realized it has been the entire 10 seasons.  If you enjoy reading or writing fan fiction this show is definitely great for it.

I think it's adorable how Adam has become the team's computer expert in Jerry's absence. I don't even think it's a racist "because he's Asian" thing, but more like process of elimination. "Well, it can't be Steve, Grover, Danny or Junior." So it's either him or Tani and since she has other roles on the team, it gets to be him.

Adam really has grown on me. And really think he has thrived there on the show.

But really Danny for the past few episodes has become very stupid. And usually I like him. It is Steve at times that I do not like. And really he can be pretty mean spirited. But yeah what Danny usually I like but for the past couple of episodes he has been really so much an idiot.

The Korean girl running all Terminator like complete with steely gaze was a little much.  Obviously a trained assassin because she could disarm and neutralize armed CID guys with just a ballpoint pen or whatever that was she was using.

Love Katrina Law.  I remember her from Spartacus (yum).  For anyone who studied that show intently, does it seem like, um, that Katrina has packed on several pounds, or at least a lot more in the chest area?  Not complaining.  Her arms look a little thicker as well. 

So it does not appear that Steve and Quinn are destined to hook-up, which would make sense as he is the boss.  Guessing the vet will be there for an episode or two before she disappears.

She recently had a kid with her husband, which could explain it.

The spy thing was... pretty dumb, but par for the course for a procedural like 5-0.  If the spy was as competent as they made her out to be she'd have vanished instead of continuing to pursue her target after the cops got involved, or been recalled by her masters.  But the show needs a climax so she becomes target fixated to the point that she draws on said target while law enforcement is literally behind her.

There is a 200% chance that Danny is going to end up on Twitter as some creepy 40 year old man who goes to the park to ogle coeds doing yoga.

I'm growing very weary of this show but would happily watch an entire season of Steve talking to Eddie in the car. That dog is just too cute! 🙂
