Season 3 Opener A Blast!
2 August 2013 | by (Seymour Tennessee) – See all my reviews

We have grown to see the characters developed more in two seasons. As Danny is afraid that Rachel will take Grace to Vegas meaning another move there. And he probably would not like Vegas as he "despises" Hawaii.

Also Steve we see his presumed dead mother Doris. Who is an action woman herself and raised her son to be that way. As he gets her to Hawaii to make her feel safe.

Meanwhile Wo Fat is up to his dirty tricks once more. As he and the William Baldwin character team up to steal drugs from the police station.

Chin Ho is also forces with a dilemma to save his cousin, Kono or his new wife. As the former was tied up to be drowned and the latter is shot. So there are a lot of emotions.

Great start to season 3 with so much emotions and character development.
