The Steve McGarrett Story – No #43

We continue our story from here

Steve 4

Surprise, surprise, Mary is in town – more than a year after Steve put her on a plane to the mainland, after she was kidnapped. She’s got a new job as flight attendant and she might be around more often.

Danny: I didn’t know your sister was in town.

Steve: Neither did I.

Mary: Hi, I’ve been looking for you two for over an hour.  You weren’t at home, so I figured I’d  check your favourite little surf spot. So here I am. Surprise.

Steve: What are you doing here, Mary?

Mary: What does it look like I am doing here?

Steve: It looks like you are going to a Halloween party dressed as a flight attendant.

Mary: Come on seriously.

Steve: You’re working for the airlines?

Mary: Yes. It’s the coolest job ever. I started like two weeks ago. And they gave me the Oahu-to-New York run. I’ll be flying back and forth , like twice a week. And we can hang out during my layovers. How sweet is that.

Steve: So a stewardess. How exactly did that happen.

Mary: Well, my friend, Angela worked for the airlines, and she knew I needed a job, so here I am. And by the way , we like to be called flight attendants.

Steve & Mary 3

Myers: Commander McGarrett

Steve: Thanks for your call.

Myers: Not a problem. Earlier today we got a tip on one of the unrecorded lines that a stewardess was planning on smuggling some contraband onto a New York-bound flight.

Steve: All right. This is crazy. Mary is not a smuggler. Are you sure you have the right person?

Myers: Commander McGarrett, your sister had about $20 million worth of diamonds duct taped to her torso. So, yeah. I think we got the right person.

Danny: Did she say why she had the diamonds?

Myers: No, she refused to talk to us. That’s why we called you. She won’t talk to anyone else.

Steve: What the hell happened?

Mary: I went straight to my hotel when I left you guys. And there was a man in my room with a gun.

Steve: Okay. Have you ever seen this guy before?

Mary: No. Don’t think so.

Steve:  You don’t think so.

Mary: I know so. I’ve never seen him before. You believe me, right?

Steve: Of course I believe you, Mary. Just slow down and tell me how you got away from this guy. And how you ended up with these diamonds.

Mary: I didn’t get away. He taped the diamonds to me and he told me that Angela’s dead if I don’t do exactly what he said.

Steve: Okay. Who’s Angela?

Mary: I told you about her, didn’t I?

Steve: I don’t know, maybe. Just tell me again.

Mary: We work together as fight attendants. We came from New York together.

Steve: Okay, so she was your friend before this?

Mary: Yes, we met at yoga class, like three months ago. She’s really like the only real friend that I have. She helped me get this job.

The team try to work on a plan to use the Governor’s plane to fly the diamonds to New York and set a trap for the smugglers. But the police evidence transport truck gets run off the road, two officers killed in the accident and the diamonds stolen. Captain Fryer and the team have to work together to try and solve the mystery.

In the end it turns out that the guy who stole the diamonds from the police truck, is Darryl Kaleo, brother of the ex-cop Kaleo who killed Danny’s previous partner. Because he was an ex-cop Kaleo is in the protective custody wing of the prison, but after being involved with the death of two more cops, Danny and Capt. Fryer make sure that he will be serving the rest of his time in general population, amongst some of the guys he himself put there.

It also turned out that Darryl was married to Angela (Mary’s friend), and that they planned the theft of  the diamonds and to fool the smugglers with the whole set-up of Mary getting caught and of stealing the diamonds from the police…….

Heart and ‘Minds’: ‘Moonlight’ star O’Loughlin returns as serial killer (April 2009)

Alex O’Loughlin staked a claim to fame as the heroic vampire Mick St. John in the supernatural drama “Moonlight,” a casualty of last year’s writers strike. Now he returns to prime time guesting on CBS’ “Criminal Minds” (tonight at 9 on WBZ, Ch. 4) as a spooky serial killer who hopes police can halt his rampage. In “The Big Wheel,” an episode written for the actor, O’Loughlin plays Vincent, a man suffering from severe OCD. Something is triggering murderous urges within him, and he leaves clues for authorities to stop him. It’s an unusual hour with a mystery that ends with unexpected poignancy.

“I’m playing a villain, kind of,” O’Loughlin told the Herald last week in a telephone interview. “He’s a very flawed human being, but there is redemption as far as I’m concerned. As I’m moving into this leading-man phase of my career, you don’t even get to read roles like this very much and you don’t get offered guest-star parts like this. I’m an actor – I didn’t go to leading-man school, I went to acting school,” he said, then laughed.

The Australian has been in demand since “Moonlight” was canned last year, a decision CBS all but officially concedes was a mistake. He is currently filming a pilot for another CBS series, “Three Rivers”, in which he plays a cardiothoracic surgeon. He appears on the big screen in September in the sci-fi thriller “Whiteout,” a film he completed before “Moonlight.” He soon starts filming the romantic comedy “The Back-Up Plan” opposite Jennifer Lopez.

But he’s beloved to fans for his role as the undead detective with the heart of a romantic. And O’Loughlin returns the love. A year away from the series, he said, “I look back at it with a broken heart for the most part. I put every part of me into that show. I was fighting for it from every angle and I was there from the very beginning.”

Given the recent success of the big-screen “Twilight” and HBO’s “True Blood,” is there any chance “Moonlight” could rise for a big-screen reunion? “(Executive producer) Joel Silver called me right before Christmas. ‘Alex, we’re making the movie. You in?’ ‘Well, sure.’ He hung up, and I haven’t heard from him since. I don’t know what the answer to that is. I don’t know.”

As he considered all the new projects on his plate, he said, “It feels to me that ‘Moonlight’s’ disappearing out of my grasp. It’s sad, but I’m so glad to have been a part of it.” Reminded that Sci Fi now airs “Moonlight” reruns in the same Friday time slot in which it originally aired, he said, “I still haven’t been paid for it – I think I’m still owed a residual for that.”

He laughed again.
