#H50 Episode 8:16 – Trimmed (or rather, cut to the bone)

  • Adam and the Ants’ threw a party.
  • The Juniors go undercover …. or are they in one of Danny’s nightmares again?
  • The Five-0’s talked and talked a lot around the magic table.
  • Steve looks gorgeous as usual.
  • Seems the state pays Danny to never be at work for Five-0 anymore, but rather be a wannabe restaurateur …. now THAT is the type of job I would like to have  – one where  your main employer let you do your hobbies half of the time, and pay you loads of money for doing it …..
  • Seems lots of people bury money in Hawaii – first thing I’ll do when I ever get there, I’ll start digging ….
  • Adam gets beat up by his new Kono’ maybe it is Kono-originals’ revenge for being duct taped all those years ago?.
  • The Juniors are not very good at being subtle when they are undercover …. maybe they need some pointers?
  • Eddie did some sniffing, but in the end Danny’s nose was better at finding the body?
  • And after all who knew …… Uncle Vito was the ‘wisest’ of them all …. But Steve still refuse to listen and just give up on the restaurant. *sigh* I guess the torture lives on…..

‘Only the Stars of Heaven Know Where Pae Is’ (name of this episode translated) …. I am happy that at least the stars know where it is, because the H50writers definitely lost it somewhere between the 3 storylines we now have to follow each week …..

…… And as usual I am amazed at the amount of activities the Five-0’s packed into this one day?

    Snort!

    But Steve looked great. Lou was wonderfully snarky. And the who shot Danno storyline actually inched forward.

    I agree. Way too much time is wasted on that stupid restaurant.

    As usual, your pictures are a gift.

    I was so sure the restaurant idea was finally dead and then they ask Uncle Vito to stick around. Idiots. A liquor license is the least of their problems.

    Is the restaurant going to blow up in the season finale? Will the cliff hanger be who was inside when that happens? Does the answer depend on ongoing salary negotiations?

    Will there be poll for us to choose the victim(s)?

      Mamayorkie, I LOVE your idea! Just blow up the restaurant! It’s the only way we’ll get rid of this ridiculous storyline, plus survivor(s) can recoup their investments from the insurance money. NOW the uncle of a law enforcement officer attempts to bribe an official for the liquor license? This storyline is SO going off the rails.

      I was glad to see Steve actually MEET with Adam in person to discuss what’s going on in Adam’s “task force.” Is this a task force of one? Steve doesn’t seem to be supervising Adam at all, unless all their communication is off camera. It would be nice if Steve alluded to it in dialogue with his team, if only to tell them that Adam’s on a top secret assignment.

      I would like to see clean shaven Steve and Danny. The beards do make both of them look older than 41.

    • From what I could decipher from PL’s last Insta pic the last scene of the season mentions a ‘she’ and McG.

        Hope it refers to Cath but I will accept Lynn giving him another black eye and telling him to take a walk if he can’t commit. Unfortunately these writers will probably just humiliate her like they did Lori because they are frat boys and that’s what frat boys do.

        The pic I saw only had a portion of the title. If there is a “she”, I hope it’s a new “she” like one who’s likeable for a change! 😉 #notgonnahappen

    Thank you so much for the pics of just Alex. Disliked this episode since there were too many plots. Why is Adam becoming so prominent and his storyline is taking too much time away from the rest of 5O, especially Steve? Plus it is very confusing. I will still continue to watch because I need my weekly Alex fix.

    It was a good episode. The ants on Adam freaked me out. Did y’all notice how grey Alex beard is getting. If he shaved that off he would look years younger. Same with Scott, grey beard as well. We know they’re getting older, but in the industry, looking young is tantamount to their career.
    My opinion, as you all know, I’m not a beard lover. LOL

    ” If he shaved that off he would look years younger. Same with Scott, grey beard as well. ” I agree. They both need to get reacquainted with their razors.
    Three storylines made this one hard to follow, but it was nice to see some fresh Steve again. I don’t care at all about the Adam plot. They may have come up with an “out” for the restaurant, though. Uncle Whathisname can run it and Steve and Danny can just be silent partners (like totally silent, never speak of restaurant again). 😉
    Thanks for the pretty pics!

      I forgot to mention that Steve with the jackhammer reminded me of *that* scene in The Fountainhead with Gary Cooper in the quarry. 😉

  6. Do you know if there’ll be a S9? With Alex (if he’s not there, I don’t give a damn abt the show). I’m asking cause I’m planning a vacation in Hawai in Sept., and if you tell me where I can find the writers, I’ll have a thing or two to tell them, none of them nice, believe me.

      Cassiopea, the writers are in Hollywood at the CBS studios. So, either send them a blistering Twitter or send them a real letter. I sent one in August 2016. No one listened to my ideas.

      • Oh, in Hollywood😡. Thanks for the tip, kathysr. They fear me or what (they should)? OK, I’ll write, even if it’s useless. If nothing else, it will be good for my blood pressure, even if there’s no S9 with Alex. And –forgive me, Alex– my letter won’t be Aloha-spirited.

        • The fact is, that 9 million people watch the show every week. So there are many people who like it as it is, and therefore the writers will keep on doing what they are doing.
          Peter is filming his 3rd reboot pilot of a show as we speak – the Network likes his writing.
          They make money, he makes money …… money talks. We are just stupid fans and fools for wanting something more ……

          Seriously, if you do send a letter, give your suggestions in a positive, persuasive and very well written letter. Negativity and nastiness will be tossed in the garbage. Sometimes outside ideas DO penetrate the writer’s world. I sent a letter to NCIS with a ton of story ideas. One of my ideas actually appeared onscreen in an episode. I was shocked and delighted.

          The Five-O writers love the restaurant storyline, so as FOYeur says, we’re stuck with it.

  8. It is 7/10 as the restaurant thing has dragged on but love Vitto
    And really money does talk
    But it was lack of action that kind of dragged this down
    Poor Adam looked like he was about to kill his snitch really should had killed the bad man not Adam.
    As really hope they find the person who tried to kill Danny.
    Steve again looks great in blue. Love Alex in blue.
    Can’t wait for next week.

      On the restaurant, we’ve seen the same unfinished interior for six months!! They’ve made no progress. This boondoggle has to be costing a fortune in monthly rent alone. There’s been no explanation of how this is being funded. Who cashed out their entire retirement account to pay for this? Danny has TWO kids to put through college, how in the WORLD can he even think of doing such a thing NOW? It’s all idiotic, and 100% for the McDanno shippers. There is no other logical reason to pursue this inane idea.

        Very good points about college funds for Danny’s kids. Maybe he’s counting on stepdad money… I hated Vito until he finally gave the honest truth about restaurantuering (sp?).

          Maybe Danny’s been a dirty cop all these years?? I’ve never understood how he could afford to (not) drive his $50,000+ hot car while living on Steve’s couch or in cinder block apartments, barely above homelessness, for the first few years on the island. These guys are public servants and they DON’T make good salaries Vito looks a little shady to me, too. He kinda acts like a mobster.

          I’m teasing, but nothing makes any sense to me. Steve inherited his house, so he’s probably not paying a mortgage. But Danny needs to pay for (1) an expensive car; (2) his own housing; (3) some amount of monthly child support, even though Stan was rich. Stan’s gone now. I wonder if Stan’s still supporting Rachel? Rachel needs to get a job! That family needs two incomes now, if they ever hope to put their kids through college.

          A restaurant NOW? Really???

  9. Oh my, I LOVE your comments, FOYeur! You are hilarious girl!
    Seems like Adam is a complete loser without a woman saving his a//. Thinking about the next episode he messes up big time again.
    Not enough Steve/Grover/Eddie in this episode, but I understand why Alex can’t be in these current episodes that much.

      Why can’t Alex be in these episodes that much? Other than 818 where he directs, what did I miss?

      Like

      • Because he had to prepare his directing of 8.18. It is not just coming on set and direct. He has to choose locations, places, camera angles and so on. There have been pics with him and an assistant.

          What are you doing up at this ungodly hour anyway? I still get up at 5:00 AM every day because I did it for years before going to my office. Even with my office now in my home, my only concession for sleeping in is to tap my foot loudly waiting for my husband to bring me my coffee while I dazzle him in my fuzzy red PJ’s.
