The final scene for this week is set at Kamekona’s yet again. Kono, Danny, Chin and Cath are enjoying some of KK’s fare when McG and McMom pull up. This scene is very well done and Alex is terrific at conveying the emotional turmoil that McG is currently experiencing. That faaacceee! McMom asks McG what is wrong, as she can ‘always tell’ and I high five my computer screen when McG is all, “you can always tell was a long time ago”. He asks her about the non-shooting of Wo Fat. McMom gives a totes lame-o excuse. Alex is AMAZING here – he smiles and says “we’re good” but his face tells a different story. When is he getting an Emmy nomination for this role?! They join the group but Danny and McG have a little buddy convo at the food truck where McG gives up McMom’s explanation of the non-shooting of Wo Fat, He admits to Danny that he totes DOES NOT believe her. What will happen next?
• McMom makes me all twitchy but I can see why she is being written this way and I applaud the writers for not making her likeable. Her character gives us the chance to see Alex do more than just wave his gun around and this has got to be a good thing, right? The egg-cooking scene made me especially twitchy but by the end of the episode, I was looking for more of McMom, mostly because of the mystery film strip and McG’s refusal to believe the lame Wo Fat non-shooting explanation.
• Cath is awesome and again I applaud the writers for the way she is being utilised. Michelle and Alex have great chemistry and she was seamlessly integrated into the episode and the McG/Cath moments were nice.
• The COTW was somewhat pedestrian but at least I understood it this time.
• All four members of the Fab Four had things to do and good screen time. Yay!
