    After all the over-the-top episodes it was nice to see a nice restrained entry, staying within realistic limits, emphasis on character.

    Did you forget the :)) in your post? Or were you watching a different episode on the 21st?

    The intelligent subtlety of the portrayal by the actress playing the FBI clerk pretending to be a field agent whose boyfriend was kidnapped by an international supercriminal and who fools the producers into becoming a regular on the show for a couple of months and when that didn't work out lures McGarrett into North Korea and at some point starts digging through the kneecap of her dead boyfriend to retrieve a surgical pin so that she can, later, knowing she is about to be killed, offer the pin to McGarret hanging by his hands from the ceiling so he can use it to pick the lock of his handcuffs, overpower the guards and steal a gun so that he can run upstairs into the waiting arms of the international criminal who was apparently just waiting for all this to play out, letting all this emotion run across her face with underplaying so masterful that it cannot be ignored by the Emmy judges, well I was just blown away.

    And then I come here and am shocked ... shocked to learn you think there may be some humor in this.

    I never realized people could enter and leave North Korea so easily. Who knew?

    Why did the dead boyfriend have a key from a tin of sardines buried in his knee? I must have missed that episode.

    Most stupid premise and episode of any show I can recall in recent time.... and that's going some. Wouldn't even know where to start picking it apart (and it really doesn't even require "picking"). If the show's ratings start to go downhill from this point, we all know when the shark was jumped.

    Yeah, that was a cool moment. I also liked how Masi Oka kind of squeezed his eyes closed for a moment like he was trying to stop time or something. :D

    This show is just a retread of Walker, Texas Ranger -- just with better theme music and more bikinis.

    With all due respect, that show was really in a class of its own. I never understood how it even got on the air, let alone lasted as long as it did. Talk about cheesy :)

    It was a pin from the surgery after his bike accident.

    After they chained her up she was telling McGarrett about how he got in a bike accident on the way to propose to her. I can't remember why he was riding the bike to get there... car broke down or major traffic or something.

    Now, why would she be able to dig it out in about 10 seconds with her fingers would be a better question...

    So Wo Fat's plan was to use Jenna to appeal to McGarrett's hero/savior personality in order to lure him to North Korea, right? He clearly had a good understanding of how McGarrett would react.

    So then why did Wo Fat waste time questioning/beating/torturing McGarrett? He should have threatened to beat/torture/rape Jenna---that seems much more likely to get McGarrett to cough up everything he knows...

    Love the line about the key from a tin of sardines....That's exactly what it looked like!

    While he knew how McGarrett would react to a friend in distress as you describe, Wo Fat did not know for certain hw McGarrett would handle things if the person being abused had just betrayed him. McGarrett would probably have still been willing to save Jenna from pain, but Wo Fat probably couldn't imagine that to be the case since he (Wo Fat) wouldn't.

    I'm sure Wo Fat couldn't imagine putting himself into danger to rescue a friend's fiancee either, but he had no problem understanding that McGarrett would do that...

    Wo Fat has seemed pretty insightful until the whole beating/torture thing. Of course McGarrett wasn't going to give up what he knows...

    And after all was said and done, the only real thing that happened, was... Wo Fat disclosed to McGarrett the code name for something that McGarrett had never hear of, allowing him to return to Hawaii and search for info on it. I don't remember the name that Wo Fat was trying to get McGarrett to disclose.

    I thought the governor assigned the new woman to the team to babysit 5-O to prevent them from doing crazy and illegal stuff. Now she is joining them in an international incident? Really?

    That's because she's warm for McGarrett's form.
