This episode of the dependably enjoyable drama opens with Chin on his knees outside HQ, wearing a bomb collar.
How the mild-mannered cop came to be in this position involves Victor Hesse, the man who killed Steve McGarrett’s father and was thought to be dead. When the police refuse to pay the $10 million ransom for Chin, an alternative – and shocking – source for the cash is suggested...
The McGarrett/Danno bromance is always amusing, but the episode shows how well Chin and cousin Kono work together and, apart from some sickly Christmas clutter, it’s a belter – with another potent sting in the tail.
The killer of McGarrett's father resurfaces and immediately makes his presence known, kidnapping Chin Ho and using the detective to demand a $10million ransom. Amid the chaos, Danny tries to prepare the perfect Christmas for his daughter Grace. Guest starring James Marsters (Buffy the Vampire Slayer).
