Sang Min has brought Chin to Kaleo, whereupon Kaleo stabs Chin in exactly the same place Victor Hesse shanked McG. They should probably start printing a target on those jumpsuits, to make it easier. I suppose at least they’ll be able to compare battle scars later. Sang Min looks really shocked by this – I don’t think this was his plan at all. Kaleo has a really odd idea of what ‘turning on other cops’ means, since he killed Danny’s partner, but I guess he’s bonkers (psychopath? Do we think?) so that kind of fits. Sang Min stops Kaleo killing Chin by saying that Chin is his leverage and he might be able to buy himself a ticket out of there, which is utterly ludicrous, but again, Kaleo is bonkers, so he might fall for it. Unfortunately, however, Kaleo hasn’t forgotten that Sang Min was the one who dobbed him in in the first place. Oops.
Now we’re in the helicopter with LOTS of ammo and I note that the PDour is cunningly using some headphones as an Alice band to avoid a really bad hair day (Kono’s hair is attempting the same trick, but without so much success). There’s a lovely moment when they fly over HPD and Duke smiles in a ‘yeah, who didn’t see THAT coming?’ kind of way. I love how he’s just used to McG now. They storm the prison armed with what I assume to be rubber bullets and stun grenades. Inside, Chin and Kaleo are fighting as if one of them hasn’t just been stabbed, and eventually Chin manages to render Kaleo unconscious by wrapping his legs around Kaleo’s neck (pls see earlier paragraph re: FUCUP methodology).
Most of the inmates have been subdued by McG’s magic grenades (that came out wrong) and Chin’s first concern, bless him, is for Leilani. She’s in a cage (is this Holdings?) with a little padlock on it that McG smashes with his big gun (that one was kind of deliberate). She and Kono leave, but Chin wants to find Sang Min, and – OMG Show! I love you!! Sang Min has done a runner in an prison guard’s uniform, leaving behind only his prison jumpsuit and his MULLET!!!! SHOW!!! MWAH!!!!
As the helicopter flies back out of the prison, HPD have not moved AT ALL. It’s entirely possible that no-one but Duke has even noticed that Five-0 were there.
In the helicopter, Leilani gives Chin a really lovely smile, and there’s a lovely exchange of looks between Chin, Danny and Kono and – MCG!! LOOK WHERE YOU’RE GOING!!! EYES ON THE SKY!!!
At the hospital, Kamekona is trying to get Chin to approve of his breakfast burrito, which I would have though flew in the face of all medical advice. Chin misses a great opportunity for a gag about prison food. Shame. But never mind, because look:
Leilani arrives, and the others make a discreet exit. Chin thanks them because “I wouldn’t be here without you guys”. Awww. Of course, without them, he wouldn’t have been in the prison in the first place, he’d still be working in the gift shop and Malia wouldn’t be dead. But hey. McG says “we’re Ohana, brah”. You don’t want to know what my response was to that one. Suffice to say I would not tell McG to do that under any other circumstances.
Leilani thanks Chin for saving her life and we have a little emo moment where we all remember that he tried to save Malia but couldn’t. Sniff. Leilani gives him a nail file as a gift since she figured that he didn’t have one otherwise he would have used it (I laugh). I like her. I don’t suppose we’ll see her again because you’d think the negative associations of meeting someone after being kidnapped and thrown in jail with a lot of people who want to kill you by the brother of the man you shot in cold blood for murdering your wife would kind of put the nix on any romantic potential, but then this is Show so I suppose you never know.
Now we’re with Kono and Adam, enjoying a lovely romantic evening admiring the view. Kono’s trousers make her look like she’s auditioning for The Mummy. Adam looks shifty all over. Then Adam goes to get wine and Kono clones his phone. I think we can start looking out something to wear for the wedding, no?
