Wow. Just. Wow. I’m one seriously happy fangirl!! I’ve been a lifelong fan of Carol Burnett and I’ve seen her guest on other shows, other shows I’ve really loved, but this was her crowning performance IMO. Top that off by putting her in a few emo scenes with Alex? Can we talk about how perfect they were together? Alex shared the screen with a legend and he more than held his own. So PROUD of him!
I have to admit, I rarely ever cry at TV shows. It’s only when I’m really involved in the human side of the character and don’t feel manipulated that I can really feel the emotions enough to cry and while I suspected I might get a bit teary eyed, I was unprepared for how much the tears flowed!! Every time I watch, I cry more!! I admit, this has a lot to do with Carol. I’ve just loved her since I was a child and this felt like I was really watching *family*, and she was there giving unconditional love to our Steve and Mary, who DESPERATELY needed it!! I felt like Steve and Mary, that we are lucky to make a few more memories with her.
Ok, so before I start crying again….let’s get down to it. I found it reallllly hard to find my funny this week as it was just such a poignant episode. Such great McGarrett family moments that the characters needed and we, as viewers have long deserved. Yes, I saw McGarrett be his usual BAMF, topper, competitive and funny self…but I also saw a side to him that I haven’t seen before. Aunt Deb brought out something really special in Steve and it gave us a couple Steve/Mary moments that are truly priceless. So here are some of my favorite screencaps. A little funny, a little naughty, a little emo and a ton of pretty to round it out. Hope you enjoy.
You know the drill! Click on the first cap and scroll through, feel free to leave your own comments.
I’m thankful for those legs.
..and the arms.
…and the face, though not necessarily this one. (yes I am)
Is that guy in black Alex’s stand-in because he’s pretty darn close…
Oh Steve….how do I adore that you not only make it a military op to get the turkey prepped and stuffed but you also searched and loaded this app on your phone!! #neverchange
I bet his kids love his face. I love his face.
*runs to the door and throws my arms around her neck*
I feel as though I should take a moment and tell you that Carol’s husband is 23 years younger than her. It just felt appropriate here.
That smile is NOT an act 😉 #GoCarol
You’re making this same face aren’t you? Don’t lie.
I hate your face. NID.
No, thank YOU!!
I’m telling ya for the last time, we are not telling Carol we’re the next Harvey Korman and Tim Conway duo. (longtime fans will get that)
That one case where they decide they don’t need guns, just McG’s face.
Can we please get Alex some protective eyewear? i’m in serious fear for his eye safety from Scott’s buttons of death.
the eyes have it
Back at HQ Chin decides to lighten the mood by farting. What? he didn’t know about the sad news? *Awkward*
Grover just checked out McG’s ass.
Now Grover is checking for the FWA. Slow down there, Captain. Pace yourself. (Ps…did you see it??)
Wait, when did Chin become a sharpshooter?
Yes, yes you are.
My God, I’m a handsome devil.
I just love this…for several reasons.
Yep, it’s still there, McG. Grover’s been checking it all day.
*sigh* Long overdue emo moment. Can we talk about how Taryn killed this scene? She was amazeballs.
Random things you notice, don’t look at the background, check out the foreground. What is Alex doing with his face? lol
and by kill, she means….
We might have to rename this to the episode where McG’s smiles almost killed us.
She’s all happy, content and comfy…..he just got us pregnant.
