LET'S JUST TALK ABOUT THIS AMAZING EPISODE, SHALL WE. SPOILER ALERT.
♦ Steve and Danny's date ♥ So much great dialogue here. First, "We could bring Gracie up here when she gets a bit older." WE. (He did say "we," right? Not "you"?) Also, "Gracie." Can I just have my moment of squee over the canon!StepSteve? :( I love the idea of Steve being the best stepdad ever.
♦ Steve remembering the first time he beat his dad to the summit. :( I love the glimpses of Steve's childhood and his relationship with his dad. The fact that "everything else has changed" but Hawaii is still beautiful (and the way Danny looked at him after he said that). Also, he said, "My father was such a good man, and he was a great cop." Tug at my heartstrings a little harder, Steve.
♦ Steve has never been to a professional baseball game. Cue "Danny takes Steve to his first baseball game" fic in five, four, three--
♦ THEY FROLIC IN A MEADOW, OK. WITH THE MUSIC SWELLING IN THE BACKGROUND. DO NOT CLICK ON THAT PICTURE, IT IS REALLY HUGE AND I CAN'T RESIZE IT IN MS PAINT.
♦ Steve explaining the hieroglyphs to Danny laskdjask
Steve: "That is a turtle."
Danny: "That is a turtle."
Steve: "Better than a Yankees game?"
Danny: "It's not even close to as good as a Yankees' game, but it's nice."
And of course Danny is most curious about the pictures of men carrying phallic objects.
♦ Steve is bleeding and wounded, with a broken arm, and he tells Danny to be careful going up to the summit. *eyeroll*
♦ DR. STEVE MCGARRETT, I'D MISSED YOU. I was seriously expecting him to perform some kind of surgery on himself, and I was preparing to freaking my shit out. And then five minutes later he gets out his tape recorder and starts playing medical examiner on the dead body. Like you do.
♦ "I'm not gonna catch your ass if you fall."
"I'd rather you not catch me if I fall!"
♦ "Eat another donut."
♦ Steve: "Hey, Danny! Thanks, brother."
I'm sorry, do we need to explore that further?
*draws hearts all over them forever*
♦ Was this Kono's first time breaking bad news to a family? I really like how they've shown her reactions to the first-times of police work. First time falling for a suspect's lies, first time bringing a bunch of kids home safely, etc.
♦ Chin's orly face @ the dude saying, "You can't search without a warrant!" YOU'RE NEW AREN'T YOU.
♦ Chin and Danny interrogating the dude on the boat. Why have they not interrogated suspects together before?! I love them together! Also, Danny's "Okay, keep going" made me LOL.
♦ Danny running into the HQ and greeting Kono with, "Hi!" LOL. And asking Chin cheerfully, "What's up!" Danny must be one of those people who has so much energy after sex that he jumps out of bed and cleans the whole house.
♦ Danny watches old hockey matches when he can't sleep. ♥
♦ All the Chin and Kono scenes were like T____________________________T When Chin walks into the house and everyone turns to stare, I just wanted to hug him.
♦ Kamekona picking up Steve from the hospital!
♦ I loved Kono yelling at Chin! God, that whole scene, those two just breaking my heart. ;_; I loved seeing that vulnerable side of Chin, because he's always so chill and stoic and polite, but here he was crying and angry and they were yelling at each other. I love DDK sfm. ♥
Also, he said that he was protecting his aunt by protecting his uncle. I guess his uncle will go to jail when HPD finds out the truth. So Chin's sacrifice was to let his aunt and uncle have time together before she died. :( Kono made him promise to tell after his aunt died though, so I'm guessing this will come up again by the end of the season. I love that he said that he had a home with H50. *heart bursts*
♦ Steve: "You have a lovely voice."
Morimoto: "I know."
♦ OK CAN WE JUST TALK ABOUT THIS SCENE WITH THE FISH. THIS WHOLE SCENE. EVERYTHING ABOUT IT.

How much does Steve just want to bend Danny over the counter and fuck him? I feel like one person cannot look at another person with that look in their eyes and not be 1) totally in love, and 2) completely horny. But maybe that's just me.
Also, "babe"! I love how he used it!
Danny: Go ahead, buddy, after you!
Steve: Oh, you, babe. I can’t get my cast wet.
Danny: That’s low. That’s really low. What exactly are we looking for?
Steve: We’ll know when we find it, so be thorough.
Danny: Be thorough, okay.
Steve: Yeah, be thorough. Check every fish, Danny. All the fish in the box.
Danny: You’re gonna pay for this, one hundred percent.
I think Steve knows that Danny is always very thorough. Was his voice just dripping with sex and innuendo, or was I hallucinating? I just don't even know with this show.
Danny and the fucking fish just absolutely killed me. What was he even doing.
Danny: "Looks like a fish!"
Morimoto: "Beautiful." (laskjd crying)
Danny: "Okay. What do you know, another big red fish! Huh?"
Morimoto: "Nice size."
Danny: "Nice size. Yeah. We got a fish! We got another fish! *slams fish on table, sees fish with bullet hole* Look at this fish. This is a special fish, huh?"
And then Danny started molesting Steve before they could even get to the car to have sex.
And yet, Danny is the one that has to change his shirt? Obviously he got something else on it, perhaps during a routine detour back to HQ. Speaking of, Steve and Danny are so cheerful in this episode! Steve just greets Kono so happily when he walks into HQ, all "Good to be back, Kono!" and has that shit-eating grin on his face when he tells her that Danny went home to change. He looks all happy and relaxed AND YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS.
♦ Steve: "Don't shoot me. You shoot me, he's gonna shoot you, and there's gonna be a big mess."
♦ Chin and Kono at the end! :((( UGH STOP BREAKING MY HEART YOU TWO. ALSO THIS SAD SONG, WHAT.
♦ THAT WHOLE LAST SCENE. STARS IN MY FUCKING EYES.
Waitress: [to Steve] Do you mind if I sign that cast of yours?
Danny: He minds, and I mind too, if you sign his cast. So no.
Steve: I don’t mind at all.
Danny: You’re gonna let her sign your cast and not me? After everything I’ve done for you? [to waitress] Hey, did he not tell you what I did for him?
Danny: Well, I saved his life, basically.
Steve: Technically, that’s not true.
Danny: That’s not technically true? Hey, how about this okay, next time I’ll leave you in the middle of nowhere with a busted arm.
I love jealous!Danny cockblocking Steve and the waitress, but mostly I love the whole team just hanging out and laughing, and Kamekona out-doing Steve in the ladies' man department, and Danny buying them drinks, and MARTICULATION. HOW IS EVERYONE SO GODDAMN CUTE AND IN LOVE WITH EACH OTHER. And the fireworks are exploding and everyone is just so happy, and then Chin gets the call, and ahhhhhh why are my eyes wet, what have they done to me. ♥♥♥♥♥
Overall thoughts: I have seen this episode three times and I still have no idea what the case was about, or why Chef Morimoto killed all those people and that poor fish, but even with a cast, Steve McGarrett is a fucking BAMF, the end. Also, Steve and Danny pretty much came out as canon boyfriends, just without the wedding rings.
Regarding next week's episode, when he goes, "Stay out of my way, McGarrett," my mom goes, "No, you stay out of Steve's way!" crying, I think I am rubbing off on her. Hawaii Five-0 Nights are, like, a production at my house.
Also, someone should take my twitter away from me. Last night, DDK took a screencap of people mentioning him, including one of me, and then he fucking posted it, and yes, I am saying the most embarrassing thing ever, jfc. :|
