"Matthew’s weird. But he’s weird in a cool way. I mean, they don’t make ‘em like that. That’s one of a kind." - Shemar Moore
Writing this review won’t be easy… I swear my hands are still shaking and my feelings are all over the place.
To say it was amazing… it’s an understatement. I seriously am checking Merriam-Webster for synonims.
"amazing, astonishing, astounding, blindsiding,dumbfounding (also dumfounding), eye-opening,flabbergasting, jarring, jaw-dropping, jolting, shocking,startling, stunning, stupefying"
It still isn’t enough.
I’m really not sure I will be able to make any sense with what I’m writing, but maybe going in order will help.
The first scene at Danny’s house… Steve rushing to Danny, the way he calls Danny’s name… Danny desperately trying not to lose it… can’t say how much I loved it.
Danny willing to go to the loan sharks in order to save his brother… Chin willing to ask a favor to the man who killed his father to help Danny. I’m speechless.
I loved the Chin/Gabriel scene at the prison… one of my favorite moment is when Chin tells Gabriel Danny’s brother he’s going to die if Danny doesn’t give the money to Reyes… and you can totally feel how Gabriel is thinking of Malia in that moment, a little flash of vulnerability that Christopher Sean was great at conveying.
A little bit of comedic interlude with the Kamekona/Jerry scene… quite the dynamic duo, these two… don’t know if they are more funny or more sweet… I’d say they’re the perfect mix of both.
As for Jerry, in particular, it won’t be easy at all to see him in trouble in the next episodes… the writers are doing a great job with him. And you know who would be a perfect roommate for him? Toast.
Another light moment I loved was Steve and Grover’s… uhm… truckgument? And Grover replying "Isn’t this ironic?" to Steve asking him to call an ambulance. I approve of the man’s sense of humor.
And let’s not forget about the case, a great one, with so much action, twist and turns, a fast rhythm, great acting, great emotions… and do we want to talk about a guy ill-famed for being heartless who gets a new heart and, along with it, a new life? For someone like me, who loves symbolic elements and redemption paths, this is pure gold! And it was really touching to see those people Valentine saved being able to come back to their lives.
But let’s get to the part that truly shook my feelings.
The Danny/Steve scene in the car made my heart melt… these two… the love they have for each other… I can’t even say how much I’m in love with them, with the way they’re being written…
"You see, that’s why I love you, buddy. You’re always willing to risk both of our lives at any given moment, huh?"
"Listen, man, I’ll go through the door first if it makes if you feel better."
Steve is worried sick, as much as Danny, yet he can’t help smiling when Danny says he loves him. It was so sweet.
See, one of the biggest reasons I love so much this show it’s that, while it can be so surprising, so unpredictable, and this episode proved it in such a big way, it also has some fundamental points that will never change, if not to grow even stronger… among many other shows where the characters betray each other, lie to each other, put themselves as first priority, we have this one show, these characters, who never fail to be there for each other, to be the most important person in each other’s life, to be willing to do anything for each other, unselfishly, limitlessly. This is true love in my book, this is the kind of people you want to have next to you every day of your life.
Loved the scene where Chin gives the money to Danny… the risks he’s taking to help him, the lenghts he went for Danny… simply amazing!
And then… five minutes of some of the greatest emotions television has ever witnessed, in my opinion… See, love? I can understand it, I can relate to it… the kind of pain, anger, the craving for revenge Danny feels in this scene? Of course I can’t understand it, I can’t relate to it, yet it was like I could feel everything, thanks to a wonderful writing and an off-the-charts acting.
And I’m so sad for Matt… I wasn’t fond of the character, I have to admit it, but… thinking of what happened to him, it made my heart hurt.
It was heartbreaking to see Danny shattering to pieces when he realized Matt was dead, he lost a piece of himself… and he lost another piece of himself killing Reyes, the man who killed his brother and threatened to kill his daughter. Scott Caan conveyed all of this just perfectly.
When something hits your emotions like this, it’s hard to explain these feelings… for sure I deeply thank the writers and the actors who made this happen. I’m still doing things absent-mindedly because I can’t stop thinking about the episode… It’s a miracle I didn’t put salt in the white coffee, it will be a miracle if I won’t put sugar in the pasta water!
This is Hawaii Five-0 and this is why I love it like I have never loved, and I’m pretty sure like I will never love, any other show. Is this the umpteenth time I say this? Well, if this show gives me always new reasons to repeat it, I can’t simply help it, and I’m happy I can’t.

That might be the best representation of the SPN fandom…
Being a teenager is hard. But the German home improvement chain Hornbach knows having parents who go the extra mile to show their support can make a big difference.
isn’t that Vincent Van Gogh painting the house?

This is why you should have a cat y’all. Egyptians believed that cats repelled evil spirits.
Cats are evil spirits. They’re just the strongest so all others must bow to their greatness.
Actually according to legend, cats are guardians of the Underworld. So once you are dead if you try to sneak back into the land of the living they send you back where you came from. They protect the living from the dead.
If you ever wonder why a cat stares off into the wild blue yonder and then bolts off for “no reason…”That cat even looks like it’s accusing him of something like wait a Fucking minute here are you dead did you really think you could slip that shit passed me
