‘Hawaii Five-0’ season 7, episode 2 review: The chess piece case continues, also James Bond?

hawaii-five-0Now that the “Hawaii Five-0” season 7 premiere is behind us, we can start to dive into some of the biggest story arcs coming up this year. The biggest mystery we have in front of us right now is who is leaving these chess pieces with their victims and now that Steve found one in his house, is he next on the killer’s hit list? For the most part this killer has been murdering other killers, but clearly this person feels that Steve needs his attention.

It’s been a week since Steve had a chess piece left in his home and his patience is running out. Steve brings the chess piece to Danny and they head over to talk to a behavioral specialist named Alicia and she is able to tell from the specific piece that was left at Steve’s house that the killer thinks of him as a worthy adversary and someone the killer respects, so it’s not necessarily a threat.  They ask her to come out of retirement to work on this case, but she refuses… at least at first. After leaving the chess piece on her table, it grabs her attention and she decides to help with the case. She continues to say that she’s staying in retirement, but her denial isn’t sticking.

Chin has told Sarah that she is going to have to go and live with this aunt and uncle that have shown up, but Sarah wants to continue living with Chin (and we want that too). Was he not able to find any dirt on these people, because we know he was looking.

We didn’t talk to much about the case of the week in this review because it’s something that needs to be watched. It had a wonderful James Bond feel to it, complete with a diamond heist, a rogue MI6 agent and a chase in expensive cars. The double cross was a bit expected, but we still bought into it and it was done in a really slick way. Over all, this was a lot of fun and we wish that this MI6 agent would stick with our crew. Episode grade: B+
