Episode 320 of Hawaii Five-0 made it to my top ten list of episodes in the end. There were so much to love in this backstory episode and it gave Alex a lot to sink his acting teeth into.
You might be wondering why we are doing this post now. Of course the new Jack Reacher series was released a few weeks ago with Alan Ritchson in the title role. You will remember Alan as Steve’s old friend Freddie in this wonderful episode.

Several divisions of the Military were involved in many different aspects of this episode.
Here are some of the pictures they shared.
