The Steve McGarrett Story – No #71

We continue our story from here

Steve 17

Steve and Danny is in a car chase as usual, but this time they are being chased by HPD as they are trying to prevent Kono from being arrested for murder. They manage to get to a spot where they can let Kono out, and they drive on to be stopped by HPD. Kono is now being hunted, because Michael Noshimuri used her gun to commit a murder!

A plane with some dead Federal agents is found and Salgado,  a terrorist and ruthless killer is on the loose in Hawaii……

Cath runs into an old flame of hers, Billy Harrington. He tells her that he is leaving the Navy and invites her to dinner. Apparently they met each other at a time, more than 5 years ago, when she and Steve were broken up and Billy and Cath had a romantic relationship during this time, while they were stationed together.

Kono finds refuge with Adam. She tells him that Michael set her up for a murder he committed by using her gun to do it. They go to a supply depot to try and find evidence that would implicate Michael and proof Kono’s innocence. They find a pair of gloves with blood and dirt on it and also run into Michael. Kono hides in time to prevent him from seeing her. They give the gloves to Charlie Fong for analysis. Charlie finds the evidence for Michael’s guilt and Kono’s innocence on the gloves.

In order to find Salgado, Steve  visits WoFat to get some information on who would be willing to help a man like that. When he himself signs out from the facility he realises that Doris also paid WoFat a visit………

Steve: You went to see WoFat. Why would you do that?

Doris: [SIGH]

Steve: Answer my question!

Doris: Don’t yell at me please, Steve.

Steve: No, no. Don’t give me that hurt feelings thing, Mom. Okay! Because A, I don’t buy it and B, I don’t care! Tell me right now, what could you possibly have to  say to that man?

Doris: Okay. I just wanted to look the man in the eye, who orchestrated your dad’s murder. He changed the course of your life, Steve. It all started with me. If I hadn’t killed WoFat’s father, then everything would be different.

Steve: I gotta say for a former spy, you’re not very good at this at all.

Doris: What?

Steve: Lying, Mom. I pulled the surveillance video from the prison. The audio was scrambled purposefully, and your back was conveniently to the camera. Just tell me one thing, How did you get the scrambling device past the guards? I can’t work that one out.

Doris: You know, if we’re going to be in each other’s lives, Steve, you’re gonna have to learn to trust me.

Steve: You have literally NEVER given me the whole truth, ever in my life. And you want me to trust you? The night WoFat came after you, you told me that you two struggled over the gun and he got away. That was another lie. I know for a fact that you let him go that night, Doris. Now why don’t you tell me right now why you would do something like that? Why don’t you tell me right now, who he is to you?

Doris: Okay, okay.

And as usual, their conversations is interrupted by the progress of the case……….

 

 The anger, the distrust, the blame, and the sadness…….

The team tracks down Salgado and they realise that he’s got information about a terrorist attack that is about to hit somewhere on mainland USA. In order to obtain the information from him, they promise to help him find and rescue his son from the NLM organisation holding him hostage.

Salgado’s fellow terrorists kidnapped his son in order to prevent him from giving information to the Feds. The team manage to rescue the boy, but Salgado is wounded. Just before he dies he gives the information about the location of the attack to Steve and it  is averted.

Michael finds Kono and Adam’s hiding place and he tells Adam that he is there to kill Kono. Adam and Michael struggle for the gun and in the process Michael is shot and killed. Adam will need to flee from Michael’s men who would want to take revenge.

Of course Doris offers her help to help Adam disappear. As they are about to leave, Kono decides to go with Adam and Doris on the ship. Steve tries to stop Kono, but Chin tells him to let her go and that she should follow her heart.

Steve and Doris does not have time to finish their conversation – and up untill today we have no answer to Steve’s questions

Letting Doris’s story fade away for such a long time, is a real disappointment to me. I was very much against the idea of spy-mom McGarrett, but Alex and Christine managed to give it life to me, but just for it to be taken away again.  And all the good work that they did with the characters, were kind of un-done for me. 😦
