Another good episode. Pacing was a tad slow at first, but it really finished with a flurry.
We also get the return of Masi Oka as the wacky coroner.
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.
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."
