I liked this episode. Mary on horseback was something I never expected to see. I love that Mark is taking some responsibility, and not leaving it all up to Mary to take care of their daughter. However, I do feel for Mary's angst at not wanting a stranger to take care of her baby, but unless you are able to afford it, most mother's these days have to work, and they have to trust their instincts and referrals. It's great for the actress who plays Delia, who's character is being developed into a strong and intelligent marshall. Too bad its the last season.
I still enjoy this show, but knowing its going to end and soon, makes it hard to really concentrate on the episode itself. Instead I find myself looking for clues as to how everything will end.
I thought this was a great episode, very well acted. The dilemma that Sam faced would have been real. It was not murder, it was self defense, but the crime was the cover up, no matter what the reason you would not expect that from a Navy Seal. I have a tremendous amount of respect for all our military, but all they had to do was report what they knew and it would have been over. They are not the ones to make the decisions of continuing a mission or not. If they had reported what happened right away, then perhaps another seal team would have had time to assemble and rescue those hostages. You can't tell me that they would not be able to do that at the last minute. I know that they have to do things that would not be tolerated in civilian life, but they still have codes to live by.
With that said, this show was very well written and showed how things get compromised. You don't have to agree with them getting away with it, its a TV show. They showed that some things are black and white, but there is always a lot of grey.
@R. Sidman.......Peter Lenkov said that Grace Park would be getting someone from her past that comes back into her life. He said she would get a big story line. Since 2.20 is the Max episode, 2.21 is the crossover, 2.22 is Wofat and the Yakuza. I doubt her big story line would be to kill her off in 2.23. If it is, then that would be a really big mistake by the writers. If you thought the Lori character set people off, try killing off one of the core 4. No, I can't see them going that route, injured and comes back next season, possible, but I think a big story line would be more then one episode.
Lori was my second guess. It could be her, but they said Terry O'Quinn is coming back and have not mentioned Lauren German. Maybe, they don't want to start anything. I'm just happy Alex is doing better, and the final shows sound like they will be great.
The most important thing is Alex is doing well. So happy to hear this.
I'm so glad that they are explaining McG's absence in the show. I love the "Dear Danno" letter idea. It looks like they made the best of the situation, and Alex will be back in 2.22 after he captures WoFat. It figures Joe lied to Alex about Shelburne. My money is still on Joe as the one being killed. Will miss Alex in the crossover, but glad to hear he will be back for the final 2 espisodes.
@Lena.....That's great news. Will miss Alex in the crossover, but at least they will explain his absence in the show. So glad to hear he is doing well, and he will be back for 2.22 and the finale 2.23. You can't end the season without McG.
@Amazingalex.....I thought it was for 2.22, because PLenkov tweeted that Wofat was in 2.22 to another fan. I was thinking that maybe this would roll over to the season finale. I'm just thinking out loud. The boss he is speaking of in the spoiler could also be the informant's boss. Somebody is going to get killed off, I assume its in the finale and not 2.22, but what do I know. I've been wrong before. I think Alex will be fine, I'm sure he's not looking forward to being in public for the first time since this. I feel for him there.
@Jschoi, I'll miss Alex in the crossover also, but at least DDK got to go to LA, and we get to see Chin more. We have all next year for Alex.
sorry, I'm so he does not have to answer questions.
Maybe this puts a riff between Danny and Steve at the end of the season. This is just my guess.
They are not going to say anything about Alex until he actually shows up on the set. Even then, they would keep him away for as long as possible so he does not have to ask questions. I would hope that they would protect Alex for as long as possible. I really would not worry.
When the war between Wo Fat and the Yakuza ends with a federal employee dead, Five-0 and local police will be completely stonewalled out of the case. Fortunately, one agent decides to go all Deep Throat and inform Danny of everything his boss will not. But Danny may want to ask himself this: Is this informant going rogue to help or hurt Five-0?
@Amazingalex and Lena......I think the person who coming to Danny as the spoiler said is because Steve did not tell his team that Joe faked Hiro's death, to protect Joe. Remember the scene at night with Steve, Joe, and Adam. So this informant is telling Danny what Steve would not. I think Alex will there for 2.22 and 2.23. The cross over may be a toss up whether he is there or not, but I would not worry about the rest.
