This is a head-scratcher of an episode for several reasons: previously we found out that perky Jenna was in league with Wo Fat, but this now appears to have been forgotten. Also, former Lost star Terry O’Quinn (who got a big introduction in the season opener) isn’t even mentioned.

Instead, a new team member has been assigned to the squad: she’s called Lori, she’s ridiculously attractive and is a profiler (all crime dramas need a profiler these days).

Lori is a pleasant enough addition, but all this tinkering with the group dynamics unfortunately leaves little room for the Steve and Danno bromance, which is the main reason for watching in the first place.

About this programme

2/23. A 15-year-old paddleboarder is abducted, and the team faces a race against time to find her as she is not carrying medication for a heart condition. Meanwhile, Governor Denning introduces a new recruit, who is given the task of making sure her colleagues abide by the new rules. Captain Vince Fryer from Internal Affairs interrogates Kono and reaches an unpopular view on her career in the force.
