HAWAII FIVE-0 “Na Me’e Laua Na Paio” Review

HAWAII FIVE-0 (CBS) a Me'e Laua Na Paio

HAWAII FIVE-0 “Na Me’e Laua Na Paio” Season 1 Episode 19 – The irony of this episode starting with a guy from a comic book convention being thrown out of a window, while I basically first heard about this show at Comic Con, had me in stitches.

After that, the case got a lot more interesting and allowed for some hysterical moments of the guys running around a convention surrounded by people dressed in Sci Fi costumes. But the real story in this episode was Steve getting a visit from a woman in the CIA claiming to be on a task force looking into one of his old cases and demanding all of his files and his father’s as well. Not one to simply take that, Steve does a little digging of his own and figures out that Kaye is just a lowly analyst and what she’s really after is Wo Fat. Her fiancé was killed by him and the two of them are suddenly on the same side.

Wo Fat gets wind of Steve’s interest and tries to warn him off, but I think we all know how that’s going to go. Now that Steve knows that Wo Fat was somehow responsible for both his parents’ deaths, I don’t think there’s going to be much to stop him from going after the guy. The only question now is who might get caught in the crossfire. I have no doubt that Steve could care less what happens to him as long as he gets Wo Fat, but what about his team or anyone else he cares about? Things are definitely heating up with this storyline.

My favorite bits…

Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a..guy in a green superhero costume? Now there’s something you don’t expect on this show.

Danny packing a salad for lunch because his daughter wants him to eat better. Aw.

Steve telling Kaye to stop asking him questions that she knew the answer to. Yeah I hate it when people do that.

Steve throwing back the “must you know every detail of my life?” at Danny. Ha.

Danny calling Steve a devourer of dreams and saying he was like a Pac-Man in khaki pants. LOL!

Alright, who else cracked up at the entire conversation about flying between the guys and Max? All I heard going through my head the whole time was “Flying maaaan!!!”
(from Heroes).

Wow, that place looks amazing like Comic-Con, down to the escalators, costumes and everything. Scary.

Danny’s obvious pride when he came up with “what’s up dog?” as they passed a guy in a giant dog costume. Oh Danny, you slay me.

Danny changing his opinion of the con when he spotted a hot con chick.

Steve yelling at Trevor not to make him run before he took off after him.

Danny riding up alongside Steve on the ATV and offering him a lift. LOL.

Steve getting Kayne’s file and busting in on her hotel room. Whoa.

Sorry Steve, but you’re wrong. I ALWAYS unpack when I get to a hotel room. It’s just the way I am.

Danny pushing Kono aside so he could write the text because it had to be filthy and he didn’t want her to sully herself.

The look on Danny’s face when Kono pushed him aside and apparently typed in something outrageously filthy. Yay for her. LOL.

Steve finding out that Wo Fat had hired Hesse to kill his father. Wow.

Chin telling Steve to put poor Johnny D out of his misery after the guy shredded his tires.

The look on the guys’ faces when they saw all the crap Johnny D had stolen.

The guys pointing out that the snowglobe was Seattle, not Paris. I especially enjoyed Danny calling the guy a schmuck. LOL.

OMG it’s D.B. Sweeney! I love him. And no, that’s not the only reason why I believed he didn’t murder Lindsey.

Aw, that was a pretty sad “Book’em Danno.” Who knew we’d get one of those?

Steve coming back with a proverb of his own for Wo Fat..though I don’t know if quoting Scarface counts, but he did have a gun, and that totally counts.

Wo Fat warning Steve not to dig too deeply into his family’s past. Yeah, sure, that’s gonna work.
