This was a nail biter and chock full of HOT guys… just sayin. It begins with Danno and Steve making a beeline for Chin Ho who apparently was abducted and woke in a public square with a bomb around his neck. The bomb will explode if he moves from the area and a cell phone with instructions for Steve rings…
Then of course we flashback to earlier. They are investigating the body dump of an arms dealer. They are afraid that they must be dealing with a much bigger criminal boss or a guy with absolutely no fear. A video shows their guy and it is none other than Victor Hess, the man who killed Steve’s father. Thus begins the chase…
They track down the doctor that treated Hess after Steve shot him only to find that Hess killed the good doctor after he was feeling better. But they get a new lead on guy who could have helped Victor hide out and get new papers. They are able to find out where Victor’s condo is but of course he isn’t there. Steve lucks out though in a club where Victor literally walks past him. A chase ensues.
Chin Ho tries to intercept them on his bike but the bad guys get the drop on him and now we are in present time with Chin Ho attached to a bomb. Hess calls and demands 10 million dollars and safe passage off the island but the Governor refuses to pony up the dough. The remaining 5-0 team members have to get creative and they raid a stash of cold case drug money from a police locker. Afterwards Steve and Kono proceed to the drop.
Victor takes the money but throws it in the fire intending to kill Chin Ho anyway. Steve and Victor fight and some amazing acrobatics on Steve’s part are seen. He manages to subdue Hess and deactivate the remote. They let a bad guy get away but they caught another. They also stole 10 million in drug money with no idea how they can replace it so they have a big axe hanging over their heads.
The episode ends with the 5-0 team spending Christmas together along with Danno’s daughter Grace. So cute! Hess also gets a visit for x-mas and we finally meet Wo Fat!! He asks Hess how close Steve is to the truth about what his father was investigating and Hess says that he is too close… which does not bode well for Steve.
Wahoo.. many of my faves all in one episode… Alex, James (Hess), and Mark (Wo Fat). Hawaii Five-O is one HOT show!
