This week’s second recap brought to you, again, by @aliciagecko. I LOVED this ep, so the recap is, um, a bit long. Sorry about that.
Thanks, as always, to bookemdanno.net for screencaps. Mwah!
We’re in a bar with two VERY BUSY people who are working on an election campaign and having a drink after work to ‘decompress’. Even though he’s only just bought more drinks, the guy gets up and leaves, at which point the waitress brings over another drink for the woman which is from a gentleman at the bar. She takes it over to him (leaving the drink she already has almost untouched, really why did that guy bother to buy this round at all? What a waste of money and good alcohol) except he is NOT a gentleman at all because the next thing we know, she’s on top of a hill with a cable tie around her wrist, pleading with him not to kill her. But he does. Except he doesn’t. Oh look, you’ve seen the ep, you know what I mean. And he’s Wo Fat (I kind of wish we hadn’t known in advance that Mark Dacascos was in this ep, because I might not have recognised his voice otherwise). Oooh, this could be interesting.
After the credits we’re at the courtroom with Steve and Danny, but before we get into this, I just want to point out that two of the guest stars this week are named Stephanie and Alicia. Bet Alicia’s the dead h00ker. That would be just my luck.
Steve and Danny are waiting for Danny’s custody hearing. I cannot do justice to this scene except in picspam:
Danny has a statement he would like to read, except he wanted to read it to Rachel and she ISN’T THERE! At her daughter’s custody hearing?? So Danny has to wing it and that doesn’t go so well. It’s been a while since we’ve heard him say he hates Hawaii but I suppose there’s nothing like laying it on the line.
Who ARE all these people anyway?
Then Danny says that it may only be the two of them, but they’re a family. This is Steve’s ‘what am I, chopped liver?’ face:
Poor baby. Let me make you feel better.
