At Holly’s – or rather, Lana’s – house, Lana is not home but her sister Beth is, along with an unsent email containing all the data Lana took from Davis’s laptop.
Beth tells them that Lana found a buyer for the flash drive and that she’s gone to meet him. The email is her insurance in case things go wrong. McG replies “this is H50. Of course it’s going to go wrong” and of course he is right. Luckily Beth is so blindsided by how green his eyes look in that shirt that she tells them where Lana is meeting the buyer.
Meanwhile, Chin has found an email in the information from the laptop that basically says: the CEO did it, because the chipset was faulty and they could get back the money they’d invested in it from Davis’s life insurance policy. The CEO hasn’t been zipping around the world in his private jet like he said he was – he’s been in Hawaii the whole time BUT he didn’t know Cross’s employers were also going to take advantage of Davis being in Hawaii to steal the technology (although what a waste of effort, really, since it’s a dud anyway) so now he’s after Lana because she’s a loose end.
McG and Danny turn up just as Lana tells Cross about the email while he’s marching her away at gunpoint, and that if she doesn’t make a call in the next fifteen minutes everyone will know about the dud chipset and his company will be toast anyway. McG, topper that he is, has to beat Danny to the top of the escalators even though he’s actually running up the down escalator – flail! flail! – although if the CEO hadn’t thrown a bump-and-run into Danny’s path he totally would have won that one – and then McG LEAPS over the top of the up escalator and takes the CEO out. TOUCHDOWN!!!
But – ooh, no dancing in the end zone because his shoulder’s done something a bit strange which is making me shiver in not at all the way that McG’s shoulders usually do. The bad guys are arrested, McG is taken to hospital and awwww! Danny misses the game so he can go with him and gives his tickets to Kamekona’s cousin and Max. Max is wearing what I would call a football jersey, in an ironic way.
At the hospital, McG is having his shoulder put back and because I am a Trek geek, I hear Worf saying ‘Good. Good, you bore that well’ in my head. Although, what is this face???
Danny is outside in the corridor watching on TV as someone scores a touchdown and look! There are Cath and Kono right there on the field! Well, what do you know, Cath’s tickets were better than McG’s. She’s SUCH a topper!
To make it up to Danny (well, sort of) McG has asked Cath for what may be the first non-work related favour yet, and the three of them are at the (sadly empty) football ground where she has arranged privileged access to the hallowed turf. McG’s over-the-top ‘isn’t this awesome!!!’ attitude is hilarious. Even he knows that this isn’t as good as being at the game but, bless him, he’s trying to sell it and then he realises he’s on a hiding to nothing and apologises in a really sweet way for Danny missing the game for him. And all without saying “you didn’t have to, you know”. Which, you know, Danny didn’t have to. But he did anyway. And McG didn’t have to arrange (well OK, ask Cath to arrange) for Danny to get to visit the stadium, but did anyway. Warm fuzzies!
Cath – the topper – got Peyton Manning to sign a football ‘To Danno’ which Danny really IS thrilled about and McG throws the ball (is this a good idea with a busted shoulder?) for Danny who – wow, he’s really fast! Awww, this is so cute! Look how happy he is!
JK: Look how fast he is! Like the Roadrunner! *meep meep!*
Alicia: And Wil E Coyote, I mean McG, needs a doctor because yeah, that wasn’t such a good idea. But look how happy Danny is! Totally worth it!!
Thanks everyone for joining us today, we hope you enjoyed the game as much as we did. We’ll see you next time!
JK: Aloha and out!
