Hawaii Five-0 Review: Welcome to Margaritaville

at . Comments


From Chin Ho proposing to the guys from Seal Team 9 tagging along to help rescue Steve, this episode of Hawaii Five-0 turned out to be quite a rollercoaster ride, and I mean that in the best way possible.

Okay, Chin Ho fans, who’s happy that he's marrying the woman who broke up with him when he was suspected of stealing from the police department? It's something we can all consider: how much are you willing to forgive the person you love most?

It’s easy for us as spectators to pass judgment on fictional characters, but I want you to think for a moment: what if the situation was real? Could you forgive the person you truly love for believing the worst about you? It’s a tough call. Thankfully, most of us will never need to make.

Helicopter Escape

Now we move on the sad part. I hope you and Josh find each other on the other side, Jenna. Rest in peace, knowing that Steve will take your murder out on Wo Fat, a tiny painful bit at a time.

Steve never believed the worse about you. He saw who you really were and was willing to forgive your mistake, even if it was big enough to land him as a prisoner in Korea.

I know some TV Fanatics were hoping that a different female was killed by Wo Fat. Personally, I enjoyed watching Lori shoot the RPG and blow up the bridge. From all the camera angles they showed it from, I’m guessing they got one try at that stunt. It was enough, it was awesome. 

It was good to see Commander Gutches (David Keith) again. I really enjoyed the tie-in to the earlier episode, with Seal Team 9 owing Steve for a skydive catch of one of their team members. Wait! We also had the double whammy of Joe White (Terry O’ Quinn) working together with Gutches throughout the episode. I think my man crush may have just expanded a little.

Did anyone else catch Danny’s Margarita reference to Jimmy Buffett? Sadly, I couldn’t figure out how to get it in the quotes section for this episode, but it was great enough that I had to mention it. Speaking of Buffett, for the second time in as many weeks, we have been treated to some decent screen time with our guest start. How awesome was this iconic singer as the grizzled war vet helicopter pilot? I loved him!

Was anyone else actually glad when Wo Fat got away? He is such a great nemesis, I was dreading him getting killed or captured and the story ending abruptly, so I was relieved to see him trudging through the jungle. 

Oh, don’t get me wrong, I'm looking forward to the day Steve makes him pay for his father’s and Jenna Kaye’s death. But I want Steve to be do it personally not to have it be random gun fire in the jungle.

Finally, I have to mention my on going crush: Lori. The hug she gave Steve clearly shows her loyalties don't lie with the Governor any more, if they ever did. So, come on now. Tell me some new members joined the I Love Lori Club this week. Anyone?

Beautiful pics!! I cannot wait for this episode. They all look gorgeous. Plus happy that lori is just in the audience and not the maid of honor. They seem to try to put her in everything so this makes more sense. Malia looks so beautiful. I really hope this is a happily ever after. For now I will think positive.


episode 2-11 looks great for monday. They have Hiro Noshimuri back with his son Adam, who looks like he is in the credits for the 2-12 episode. Maybe we will get more answers about Steve's parents murders. The school bus kidnapping looks really exciting. I know I'm going to enjoy this episode, but since I saw the wedding photos, I'm really waiting for the 2-12 episode.
I hope that if something does happen that it won't have anything to do with Chin and Malia, but you are all probably right, they may want to keep us hanging for a couple of weeks until the first January episode. I think the writing and stories have been so much better the last 3-4 episodes, makes me feel that this show will do well and we will have another season after this.


Hi, this is my first time so I hope I don't mess up. I'm a Korean Canadian so a big fan Grace Park and also Daniel Dae Kim. To me seems like there is two teams the white team and the Asian team, I'm ok with Kono and Chin Ho together cause that's who I watch for. But my fear is the Asian team is being pushed out of the way and will be replaced next year. And the only Asians will be in small rolls like Fong and Max, Max looks Asian, don't know why he has a German name. Of course Kelly is not Asian either, guess they can't find enough Asian names. Thank you for letting me vent.


I saw the wedding pics also, was sooooo happy to see Lori was not a part of the wedding party.


Saw the wedding pics this morning and everybody looks GORGEOUS!! But a early wedding in the season means mostly something! bad in the finale I sure hope not *fingers croosed*


Zia, the pics look good, thanks for letting us know about them. As about the wedding .... hm... I guess there will be some kind of surprise for us at the end.


Hey everyone! I know this is jumping ahead to episode 2-12, but there are pictures of Chin and Malia's wedding out. It looks like a traditional Hawaiian wedding. Everyone looks great. Kono is in the wedding, yes Lori is there but she is seated with Max as a guest. (maybe they have been listening). Sorry guys that this is more of a woman thing, but we do like to see weddings. I'm sure they will blow something up soon. Google: aoltv.com, put hawaii five o in the search, go down about five articles and you will see "exclusive first look: a TV wedding hawaii five o style", click on that. Looks great, maybe they will have a normal wedding where no one gets knocked off.


I'm not familiar with the interview so I'm speaking in general terms. Entertainers and athletes are often asked really stupid questions over and over again and the temptation is often to give a stupid answer, besides haven't we all said something that we wish we hadn't we are just lucky we don't a mic in our face.


@John. Lmao.


Who cares does it affect the show know so gives f@%#.
