AAAAAAND WE’RE BACK!!! Who else is embarrassingly giddy about the return of Steve Mother Fucking McGarrett and team? You all remember where we left off, right? McG was framed for murder, Kono was busted for her role in stealing the money, Jin jumped ship to HPD, and Danno…well Danno was about to move back to the states. The Govnah is dead, Kelly Hu (WHO?!) is really dead and a bit crispy, and ultimately Wo Fat is behind it all. Things look bad. However, in the category of things that DON’T look bad…
You’re welcome, ladies…
…and guys, there’s one for you too.
Well, where we WERE is all well and good, but what about where we’re going. It looks like we’re going back to the same place we were up until the end of last season. They didn’t pull any punches with this episode.
So, as stated, McG is in prison at the start of the episode. A new friend arrives on the island, and it’s fuckin’ John Locke! He immediately visits McG in prison, because McG is his protege. Immediately following that little visit, McG heads out to the prison yard, and for some reason is left alone with Spike, who shanks his ass! Upon hearing the news, Jin and Danno rush back to the prison to talk to Spike, who tells them that he did it so McG would be rushed to the hospital so he could escape! AND BOY DOES HE!
So, let’s see…clearly the remnants of H50 have to prove that McG was innocent so that they can get the band back together again. Thanks to some old video hidden by McG’s dad, they find a hidden camera in the new gov’nah’s house, and it clearly shows McG NOT killing the old gov’nah. So he’s off the hook, and the new gov reinstates the team…except Boomer, because she’s still on the hook for the 10 mil that went missing out of the evidence locker. Well, that’s ok, because she helps out in an unofficial capacity.
So clearly the remainder of this episode is the attempted manhunt of Wo Fat. There is shirtlessness, explosions, and hilariously ridiculous action sequences. Just tell me you didn’t enjoy it. You can’t. Nope, you can’t. If you didn’t laugh out loud at least once, you haven’t been with us long enough. But I’m glad you’re here, too.
