We continue our story from here
The Five-0 team attend the Governor’s charity event.
Steve: Look, I know this isn’t what you had planned for your 48-hour leave, Cath
Cath: Would I rather be drinking beers at Haleiwa Joe’s right now? Sure. Look, I get it. I get it. You can’t turn down the Governor when he invites you as his special guest.
Steve: Especially when the plates are $5000 a pop and he bought the whole table.
Steve: Yeah. That being said, you look beautiful in your dress tonight.
Cath: Thank you. Don’t get used to it. Cause the second this is over, these heels are coming off.
Steve: I was hoping you were gonna say that.
Needless to say, there was a murder in the hotel and the evening becomes a case………and a lot of stuff goes wrong.
Governor: What the hell happened out there, Weston?
Lori: I’m sorry sir. It’s um…. it’s my fault
Governor: I don’t want apologies. I want explanations. I specifically told you to keep me informed of every step of this investigation. Instead my head of security is getting third-hand information form HPD.
Lori: Sir we had just cause. The suspect was fleeing. Time was of the essence. We had to make a call.
Governor: The call you should have made was to me. In case you forgot Weston, I assigned you to this task force to prevent exactly this kind of disaster.
Lori: Yes sir.
Governor: When this is all over, you’re gonna have to make a choice. The state of Hawaii or Five-0
Lori: The second thing in that envelope is my letter of resignation.
Steve: The Governor
Lori: Yeah. He gave me a choice. He asked me whose side I was on, the state of Hawaii’s or Five-0’s. I said both. He said, “Wrong answer”.
Steve: You can have this back, okay. Because I don’t accept your registration. And I’m gonna talk to the Governor and I’m gonna straighten this whole thing out.
Lori: No, Steve. It’s okay. He’s right. He’s got a point. I mean the Governor put me on the team to be his eyes and ears. He said there’d be repercussions if we cross the line, which we did. Repeatedly.
Steve: I’m really sorry. This is my fault, Lori and…
Lori: No, if anything, it’s my fault. Honestly, I……I let things slide because, uh…….Because of my feelings for you. And the rest of the team of course, but, um…. I let a lot of things slide.
Cath is packing her bag and there is a knock on the door.
Cath: So what’s with the bag and the uniform?
Steve: I felt bad that our weekend got blown up by a case and I figured since I was due for my reserve drill, I’d put in a request to do it on the Enterprise.
Steve: Yeah, with you.
