Chin chose to try save his wife Malia, but finds her fatally shot, while Adam managed to dive to Kono before she drowned. Steve is startled to find in Japan Shelbourne is none other then his mother Doris McGarrett, shocked to hear she's a former Pentagon spy who staged her death 'for the family's safety', yet brings her home. She must be moved to a HPD safe-house as Danno must report Wo Fat has already been broken from jail transport by helicopter lift. It's soon assigned to Chin's nemesis Delano, who the team now tracks down, but he's also pursuing a major, bloody contraband operation. Written by KGF Vissers

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.
