The Steve McGarrett Story – No #23

We continue our story from here

(Sorry, this is going to be a long one – so much happening during this episode and just too many pretty faces to choose from!! 😛 )

Steve 18

The team is hot on the trail of WoFat. Together with SWAT they raid a house supposedly used by WoFat as a hideout, according to intel from Jenna.

Steve 0

Steve: I got eyes on the target, but it’s not WoFat. It’s Sang Min, I repeat Sang Min.

Kono: Please repeat.

Steve: I’ll say again. Sang Min. WoFat wasn’t in the house.

Steve -

Jenna: Okay, who is Sang Min?

Chin: Fugitive, human trafficker, all-around scumbag. He is also a known associate of Victor Hess, which puts him in the same circles as WoFat.

Jenna: Okay, so he could have been holing up at WoFat’s safe house.

Steve: Or he was taking a shot at him. The front door was rigged with the explosive charge, right? I think Sang Min was expecting WoFat to be walking through that door.

Jenna: Why would he try to kill him.

Steve: I think it was a preemptive strike. Sang Min knows that WoFat does not like loose ends

Chin: Which is exactly what he became once he escaped form prison.

While in pursuit of Sang Min, Danny runs through a house and he comes across an unknown dead body in it. Emerging from the house, after discovering the body, Danny shows signs of restrictive breathing. He is taken to hospital in a very serious condition caused by an unknown poison.

Danny 1

Jenna identifies the toxin that caused the death of the guy in the house and which Danny was exposed to, as sarin. Her quick assessment assures that Danny gets the correct treatment quickly and it saves his life.

(Interesting to me that Jenna has been in their company for a while, but she did not know that Danny was divorced and moved to Hawaii to be with his little girl, Grace 😕 )

 Sorry I could not help myself – the faces were just to pretty

 ……… and some more………

 Sang Min contacts Steve and offers him a deal to deliver WoFat for them to capture. Steve refuses

With Rachel out of town and Danny in hospital, Steve picks up Gracie from school.

 Some more pretty again. *SIGH*

Steve and Chin arrive back at the office and there is a visitor waiting for them.

David: Commander McGarrett, David  Akahoshi, Internal Affairs.

Steve: I know who you are. What are you doing here?

David: I came to return something to Mr Kelly. The serial numbers on these bills don’t match the stolen money, which means you’re trying to cover for you uncle.

Chin: Those inventory logs disappeared years ago, so those serial numbers don’t exist.

David: Actually, they do. After the forfeiture locker was robbed, IA kept waiting for you to slip up and spend the money somewhere. We figured that you were being careful. So we had the asset forfeiture division put the word out that their inventory records had been lost.

Chin: It was all a lie?

David: If you thought we couldn’t trace the serial numbers, maybe you would finally start spending the money. But that never happened, because you never stole it.

Kono: Chin, this has gone to far.

Chin: You got your money back. Let this go.

David: I’m sorry but I can’t do that. I know you were just trying to protect your family, which is why I am not gonna charge you with obstruction of justice. I’m not even gonna ask where you got that money. But your uncle  stole form the Honolulu Police Department, which means he stole from the people of Hawaii. And he’s gonna have to answer for that. [walks out]

The Money

Steve: I myself, am gonna ask  where you got the money.

Chin: Marcum.

Steve: The bookie?

Chin: I signed the deed to my house over to him.

Steve: Return it. Get your deed back.

Chin: Steve, I didn’t have a choice.

Steve: Listen to me, all right. You did this for your uncle. You don’t have to explain anything else to me.

At the hospital, Steve finds Rachel sleeping in Danny’s arms.

Danny & Rachel 1

The next morning a  recovered Danny is back at the office.

Steve: You and Rachel? How long has that been going on?

Danny: Uh, a while.

Steve: Were you ever gonna tell me?

Sang Min: McGarrett

Chin: Put your hands in the air. Get on your knees, right now.

Steve: How did you get in here?

Sang Min: I need your help

Chin: He’s clean.

Steve: Told you I’m not gonna cut you any deals.

Sang Min: You don’t understand. I’ll plead to any charge. Take the maximum sentence, as long as you place me under protective custody.

Danny: Oh yeah, what happened?

Sang Min: WoFat. I tried to make things right with him.

Steve: What did he say?

Sang Min: He told me he’s not gonna rest until I’m dead. And then when I am, he’s gonna come for you next.

Steve 64

  1. Definitely one of my fav eps of S1 🙂


  2. Such a fantastic episode! And judging by all the pretty you captured, I’d say this was one of your favorites, FOYeur?
    I can’t blame you for not being able to choose from all the yumminess. All the caps from the hospital scene are gorgeous. Danny’s death scare gave us some of the best faces from Steve. It was evident that Steve loved Danno. I think it is more of a brotherly love, but I have admitted before, that I am a McDanno fan, to an extent. It is interesting how “they” put Danny in danger, almost to bait Steve’s reaction. “Uncle Steve” picks up Grace from school to bring her to Danno in the hospital. Then when he comes back the next day to see how Danny is doing…Rachel is in his arms. The concerned, unassured smile he makes when Danny “shushes” him…*sigh*
    I also loved the Rachel character. It is unfortunate that Hawaii is so far away, because I believe, as you have said before, FOYeur, that it makes repeat and long term castings, difficult. I hope she does come back again, maybe to give Amber a few words. Sorry, I have really gone off on a tangent. Never know where this thinking will end. 😆
    In the umpteen times I’ve watched this, I have never noticed his tousled hair in the phone pictures. MMMmmmm….wouldn’t I love to be the one to have caused that smexy look. 😛
    #52 >> Smile, with hand to those delicious lips….((THUD))
    #46 & 48 >> I’d like to make a meal out of that long, thick, veiny, succulent (I could go on for hours 🙂 ) NECK!! SLUURRRP!
    I have decided I must eat before commenting on this post. 🙂 I become ravenous when I see his delicious features.


    • Interestingly enough, almost all these faces were actually in amusement towards Jenna. She got the best faces out of Steve with most of the scenes they shared. 🙂

    There is just sooo much pretty going on in this episode that it should be banned!

    I loved Rachel and Danny and do hope that she comes back – Amber just doesn’t do it, she’s missing the “it” factor – Danny looks at Rachel and it’s love, he looks at Amber and sees a one night stand. Sorry, just my opinion.

    Loving these recaps! It’s making me want s5 more and more!


    • I think any woman would have ti be really special to ever take Rachel’s place in Danny’s heart – no matter how much trouble they have been through.


  4. please please please torture us wih more Steve faces


  5. *sigh* His faces are orgasmic.

    I love this episode because I love Steve when there’s an injured Danno. He really does love him. The moments with Grace were super sweet and it shows just how far Steve has come from being uncomfortable and inappropriate around children to caring for Gracie and holding her hand, he has alot to thank Danny for 🙂


    • For me the show actually failed a bit to give me the feeling that you decribe here. With so little contact on screen between Uncle Steve and Gracie there has not really been that growth for me. I do not really get that same feeling that Steve changed because of those interactions and that being around Danny and Gracie made it happen.
      For me it has always just been more, that Alex in real life are so good with kids, that he just can’t help it to be good with them on the show as well – Gracie/Teilor included. .


  6. This episode is my 4th favorite of season 1. I really enjoyed the plot and i love Steve’s faces in all scenes. It’s too much gorgeous to be true, but Jenna/Larisa can confirm that he’s real. I’m wonder if her panties were destroyed with all his face expressions. She’s an actress but a woman can’t always be strong to face this handsome man. TY Foyeur.
