Did You Know?


The scene where a helicopter uses a grappling hook (by lifting the armored car where Wo Fat is in transit to a U.S. Marshals aircraft) and dropping it in the ocean) along with deep sea divers armed with spear guns could be deemed as homage to the James Bond franchise - the plot was similar to the films Thunderball, You Only Live Twice, and Licence To Kill using the deep sea as part of the plot.

Wo Fat is uninjured when he is rescued from the armored car a sea. The armored car was dropped from 50-100' with Wo Fat seated normally. The impact would have imparted 100's of G's shock to his body. This would normally result in instant death or extreme trauma. See more »

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.
