I’m never going to cheat on my wife
Richard Davis quietly sat there in the pale blue light of the interrogation room, hands cuffed behind his back. He wasn’t sweating…yet. The bags under his eyes however showed the jet lag that he was suffering from, but nothing more. The two shadows in front of him didn’t budge, but he thought he knew what the two of them were thinking, which panicked him, and he tried to slow his breathing. The shorter of the two moved into the light.
“This bat was meant to kill pitchers, not pretty young girls,” the officer said.
“What do you mean?” Richard responded flatly.
“This is the bat that was used to kill Lindsey. A piece of wood was found embedded in her head and I’m guessing that this is the bat where it came from.”
“This is absurd,” Richard said calmly. “Lindsey Roberts was an intern at my firm for only a couple of months. What happened to her was tragic, but I had nothing to do with it!”
“So you weren’t having an affair with her?”
“No!” Richard said, annoyed. Annoyance, he thought, might help him convince them.
The other officer finally moved. He opened the manila envelope he held, slid out a photo and put it up to Richard’s face.
“So this isn’t her?” the taller officer said. “Then how do you explain this!” he said, thrusting the photo in his face.
And there he was- floating over Lindsey in a moment that he thought he only shared with her, but now living on in ink and paper. His face slackened and his jaw dropped.
“I didn’t kill her,” he said quietly.
“Are you really still trying to deny this?” the shorter one said. He was practically laughing!
“I swear I didn’t kill her…yes that’s me, that’s my office, but I never made the video.” He looked nervously to the ground, and started rocking in the chair from side to side…the same type of nervous tic innocent people start when panic sinks in. Slowly the wheels turned in his mind…the only other person that would have done something like this was…
“DUDE IT’S YOUR WIFE” my wife yelled at the TV. Yes, the wheels were turning in her brain too. I’m never going to cheat on my wife. It’s just wrong. And she would catch me. And she just might take a bat to my girlfriend’s head.
Finally a new episode!
Raving about this episode is going to make me sound like a Bieber-fever induced 14 year old, but I gotta say that the long wait for last night’s new episode was well worth the wait. Written by J.R. Orci and David Wolkove, the episode had more twists and turns than the long and windy Old Pali Road through Nu’uanu! I never saw it coming- a murder investigation of a hapless convention fanboy who was thrown out a window ends up being a deeper case of mistaken identity, marital infidelity and revenge. It wasn’t until Richard Davis’ (D.B Sweeney) interrogation that the story became crystal clear. Moral of the story: in the Five-0 world, your culprit is one of the first people you meet (that means you Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo).
One of the things I missed in the absence of Five-0 was the smart banter between the characters, and this episode didn’t fail to deliver. In the same way “Lost” used to have a shout out reference to Star Wars and other bits of pop culture, Commander Sisko’s “emancipated” Star Trek world view had me in stitches. James Ransone’s wise cracking character Johnny D had a few great lines with the master wise cracker himself, Danny.
The episode also featured the introduction of a new and probably recurring character Jenna Kaye (Larisa Oleynik). So far she seems to be the counter balance to Kono- Jenna is all brains, as opposed to Kono who’s all about the right cross. We’ve only seen Jenna dressed down casually or dressed in professional, conservative way, whereas Kono gets sexed up in all sorts of ways. A TV Guide article earlier in the week openly speculated about Jenna’s potential love interest with Steve. While I know the article was pure speculation, I’m not overly impressed with the character, nor do I even see the potential connection between the two characters. We’ll see what the future holds for Jenna.
Jenna ties a lot of the missing pieces together for McG and their new partnership is threatened by Wo Fat’s sudden appearance at the noodle house. Alex seethed and I’m not quite convinced how anyone can play it so cool, in the face of the person who murdered his parents, but I’d be jumping across the table if I were him. Who’s Wo Fat’s protection? The waitress? Is she going to splash hot tea on McG if he touched Wo Fat?!? In any case, McG has a name, face and information that ties Wo Fat to his parents’ murders…I couldn’t believe McG let him walk out the door. But what happens next?
Everyone say it together, “IT’S FEMME NU!”
That was the simultaneous tweet of about a hundred Hawaiians (mostly male) when Kono announced where the cell phone calls were tracked down to. For those not from Hawaii, Femme Nu is a locally owned business that employs a lot of young, attractive women who are all paying their way through medical, law, chiropractic and beauty schools. I wonder what went through Grace Park’s head when she skimmed the script the first time and saw the words “strip club”…but sorry boys, Kono doesn’t go undercover at Femme Nu (well at least not this time).
Because the truth is better than fiction, I’ll let a reviewer from yelp give you the low down on Femme Nu:
There are a few reasons why Femme Nu stands out from the other clubs — plenty of diversity (all different shapes, sizes and shades), not outrageously expensive (unless you’re thinking about getting a private dance, in which case my advice is, “don’t”), friendly and personable dancers (there are a couple of psychos that should probably be on meds, but hey what strip club doesn’t have them), and its pretty low-lit, making it difficult to recognize co-workers or be recognized.
Only a couple of psychos? Not bad!
Five-0 gets their geek on with some local help
A huge shout out goes to Lisa Woo (@LisaLisa98) who helped design a lot of the costumes at the convention scene. You’ll also see here going down the escalator and gets a slight once over (not eye hump) from McGarrett!
With 12 separate shots that I counted, I believe I got more “Hawaii Five-0” facetime than my beloved guest star who was ninja’d out in the ski-mask, Nick Lachey. 😉 In all seriousness, it was a really fun yet long day being an extra on 5-0. But I couldn’t complain as it’s my favorite show and I was living the dream! The entire crew is really cool and I even had a memorable moment with the actors, Scott Caan and Alex O’loughlin, in between takes.
“You’re like the devourer of dreams. Like Pacman in cargo pants.” -Danny
“Uhura was a sister. And she answered the phone. I am a commander!” -Trekkie to Danny
“MAVIS? CAN YOU BRING OUT THE FILES FROM THE ROBBERIES LAST MONTH?” Johnny D.
And Now, Things We Learned About Hawaii From Hawaii Five-0, Episode 19, “Na Me’e Laua Na Paio”
1) We have the most adorable Super Dorks at conventions.
2) We have the funniest criminals in the country. MAVIS…?
Did you notice…?
Where did Jenna get the recorder and Steve get the postcards?
Did someone steal the Champ box evidence from Hiro Yoshimuri and is trying to help Steve?
The Hawaii Convention Center also stood in for Sydney International Airport from “Lost”.
The noodle house where Wo Fat found McG was the “Ono Fun Noodle House”. “Ono” means “delicious” in Hawaiian.
Actress Perrey Reeves plays Ari Gold’s wife in “Entourage”. Coincidentally, James Ransone plays a character named “Johnny D” in this episode…is that short for “Entourage” character Johnny Drama?!?
“Na Me’e Laua Na Paio” literally translates to “heroes, villains”.
