Um, did they totally forget that woman
Spoiler:
deliberately ran over her husband with Danny's car?
Vehicular homicide, anyone?

Also, a prison guard allowed to carry matches on his person when working with an inmate?

If I'm not mistaken, all residential homes should have exterior doors that open inward.

1. The couple should have pulled open the door, instead of pushing.

2. I watched that scene again and the door was installed on that house where it opens outward. And you can see the hinges from the exterior!

Makes no sense!!!!

Given his attacks a few minutes earlier, obviously vehicular self-defense.

She's 5-0 adjacent so the cloak of immunity also extends to her. 5-0 immunity is even better than diplomatic immunity.

The whole Danny premise was stupid. The woman comes from the East coast and changes her name. Meets Danny who in a moment of passion plans this getaway with her where she didn't know the location. OK, good so far. Then her BF shows up, presumably the 1st time in Hawaii. And while McGarrett and crew had no idea where Danny was or how to find him and the cell phones were off so they couldn't be pinged, and yeah they were distracted with the arsonist but still, this boyfriend who didn't even know her new name, never heard of Danny, new to the islands, emphasis on plural islands, is able to find her in a matter of hours. That kind of stretches the imagination just a little bit.

As to her running over the body, couldn't happen. That car has very little ground clearance and she was too close to get a running start. She would have hit the body and dragged it for a ways before the car went over the body. And the front bumper would have been damaged quite a bit.

The ending went in a different direction than I expected. I was thinking Steve was going to recommend Kanakaredes for a position in Hawaii. If not on the 50 team then some support unit.

they should have had her playing the same character from CSI NY

2015 must be return to CBS year for alumni of that show -

AJ Buckley - who played Adam Ross on the show - was the journalist who was killed on last weeks episode.

Anna Belknap - who played Detective Lindsay Messer on the show - had a small part playing the wife of the patient - the one that Joe White had transfered to Oahu because he was ill - in the episode that aired on January 30.

Peter Lenkov, who is H50's showrunner, was the showrunner for CSi NY. Most of the CBS shows are in the same universe in some form, but Kanakaredes character on NY later became a CSI in New Orleans, so it probably wouldn't have made sense to have her play the same character.

Just got caught up with this episode tonight.

Correct if I'm misinterpreting your comment, but Danny didn't just meet Amber in this episode. This was Lili Simmons 3rd appearance. They had a pre-existing relationship prior to this episode.

and I was at how they totally forgot about the dead ex husband ran over by Amber and just moved on in the plot.

It was good to see Melina Kanakaredes again. She hasn't really worked much since leaving CSI: NY. Ultimately Randy Couture was a lame villain.

Not really an LPGA fan, but Michelle Wie looked really good, especially in that tiny golf miniskirt. Hard to believe she's 25 now. I still remember when she 1st came into the gold world as a 14 or 15 year old. Tall & hot Asians are a rare commodity.
