16 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was floored when they dumped Chen's body on the steps of the headquarters. Knowing how close Steve was to his men and especially Chen, I knew this was going to be an exciting episode. When they attempted to assassinate Steve I was so out done. This to me was one of the best episodes. I have watched all of them on Netflix and am coming down to the home stretch. I love the scenery of Hawaii and the people emit a sense of loyalty for culture and family. These have been some of the most exciting story lines and I am glad I had an opportunity to be a part of it's viewing audience. I read a lot of the history of Mr. Lords love for the island and the people. He left a major legacy to the institutions and culture of the island.
