actress Peyton List

Another good episode.  Pacing was a tad slow at first, but it really finished with a flurry.  

This show guest starred the lovely Peyton List, who I first saw as the Nicole Kirby ,the baby sitter in "Flash Forward."  Apparently, she has also done ten episodes of "Mad Men." Just look at the photo - she is a major hottie.
The other guest star is Rhys Coiro, whom most of you may know as Billy Walsh on "Entourage." So between Scott Caan and Coiro, its a mini reunion.

We also get the return of Masi Oka as the wacky coroner.

The episode title "Palekaiko" means "paradise." 
OK, spoiler alert after the jump.... 

Plot summary: While Five-0 investigates the murder of a man on his honeymoon and his
wife's abduction, Medical Examiner Dr. Max Bergman recognizes uncanny
similarities to a series of unsolved homicides from a year ago.

Body count: two, including the serial killer.

Coiro is a serial killer out to avenge the fact that his fiance stood him up.  He goes on a rampage on the anniversary of his wedding that never happened.

Great scenes:  Danno and McGarrett in the car having a serious discussion about the difficulties of making death notifications, when Steve turns on the radio to liven the mood. The station is playing cheesy music.

McGarrett telling Danno during a chase scene not to puke in their borrowed car.

Best Lines:
McGarrett: No one on a cruise ship wears a tie.
Danno: Yes they do, all the time, so they can hang themselves when they are bored.
McGarrett: OK, put it in your pocket and you can hang yourself later.

The cruise ship interiors were not filmed on a ship.  The hallways were too wide.  It was probably a hotel.  Only the exteriors were at a cruise dock.

The best bit of dialogue came near the end, when they were confronting the killer holding a hostage.  Danno starts talking to Coiro. It went something like this:
M: What are you doing? The guy is clearly a psychopath.  You trying to make friends with him? You trying to connect?
D: He's standing right in front of us.
M: Danny, you're a cop,not a therapist.
D: I have been trained for this kind of thing, OK?
M: What, to bore people into submission?
D: [to the killer]Don't listen to him. His idea of communication is to drop a witty one liner, then he shoots you in the face.
M: I'm gonna shoot this guy, just so he doesn't have to listen to you.
D: Why don't you do your thing, and I'll do mine.

McGarrett then shoots him in the shoulder as he lets go of the hostage.

Tomorrow, I'll write about "Men of A Certain Age."

Aloha!
