Can't Get Much Better than This 3.1 ****
25 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An absolutely great season opener. Wait until you see who is directly behind the door that Steve opens. This will be a major surprise. I guarantee that.

Anyway, we have motherly love here even in the most of unusual circumstances.

Wo Fat is as menacing as ever and is joined by the Baldwin character as they team up to get drugs out of a police station. Tragedy strikes Chin, but as a police officer, he goes beyond that only to do what a person would be tempted to do after such a tragedy.

Danny doesn't Rachel to move to Las Vegas as Grace would go there and he doesn't want to live there. Steve tells him to reconsider. I hope that Danno is not leaving the show.

The team is back and they're better than ever. We got some great topics here-abandonment, reaction to it, striking from tragedy, etc. As I said, it doesn't get better than this.
