Just a little comedian aid by no means hurts any sequence.
Nonetheless, it was nice to observe Bobby Lee’s Jin stretch a bit on Magnum P.I. Season 4 Episode 11.
The phrases “a bit” should be emphasised.
It was no shock that Jin had created one other get-rich-never scheme (bear in mind his startup that cleaned cash to kill germs earlier within the pandemic?).
Jin went a bit extra pedantic this outing and determined to begin a dog-walking enterprise. There’s one thing nobody had considered beforehand.
No surprise the gang at La Mariana largely hooted him off the stage. Solely Higgins was variety sufficient to entrust him with the lads, Zeus and Apollo, for the afternoon whereas her and Magnum took on a brand new case.
Juliet certainly ought to have recognized higher. In spite of everything, she was the one who probed Jin about his lack of a marketing strategy.
Jin had no thought what he was doing. A canine walker has to know extra than simply the way to stroll canines.
For example from the episode, a canine walker has to know what to feed and never feed a canine. An power bar that was questionable diet for a human undoubtedly should not find yourself inside a canine. As Kumu identified, chocolate is poisonous to canines.
This poisoning meant that Jin instantly spent his nonexistent income on a vet go to. Along with ready anxiously for phrase from the vet, he had to hang around with loopy pet individuals.
Oh, yeah, and the 2 gun-wielding robbers as properly, who surprisingly intersected with Magnum and Higgins’ case.
Thomas and Juliet have been doing God’s work. Or so it appeared, at first. A bag containing greater than $100,000 fell right into a church, like manna from heaven. However the blood on among the payments made Sister Adina, their shopper, skeptical about holding it.
As soon as they met Sierra, the teenager parishioner battling a mysterious illness for whose remedy the funds have been earmarked, they have been decided to not discover any motive for the nun to reject the cash.
Jin’s prison previous turned out to be useful on this case, as he was capable of establish the cash launderer concerned with the money based mostly on the kind of bag inside which it was.
They needed to work again from that cash launderer to find who had liberated the funds from the prison who owned them.
Issues went downhill shortly, particularly after the pair discovered a physique connected to the cash. That may be a warning bell for Sister Adina, so that they hemmed and hawed when reporting to her.
In spite of everything, Sierra definitely may use that cash greater than some island crime boss.
It was good that they introduced Katsumoto into the loop early on as they would wish him and HPD’s sources because the case developed.
Issues took a flip when Leon, the church’s ex-con handyman who drove a pickup just like the one which had pressured the courier off the street, was discovered shot after serving to to commit the theft.
Leon was man who acquired caught up in a nasty state of affairs. Hoping to assist Stella, he agreed to tear off the crime boss. However as soon as the courier was shot and killed, Leon wished out, and he shot Izzy, one among his accomplices, earlier than taking a bullet himself.
Naturally, out of all of the vet clinics on Oahu, the opposite two robbers ended up on the identical one as Jin (and Zeus and Apollo, in fact. I used to be disillusioned that Jin did not sic them on the robbers.)
At the least, when Thomas and Juliet arrived on the clinic, they realized they have been in over their heads and referred to as Gordon, who rounded up a major police presence.
As incompetent a dogwalker as he was, Jin proved to be a shifty inside man, utilizing Magnum’s telephone first to relay info and later arrange the robber Purple for the police.
Sadly, Purple had gotten out the details about Leon to Tower, the ringleader, so it grew to become a two-front operation. Magnum needed to race to the church to guard Sister Adina.
It was hilarious how Thomas tagged Tower with a group plate, then ran outdoors to attract him out, straight into the police.
Then Magnum made the bag of cash disappear. Katsumoto did not make a lot of an effort to search out it, did he? Nor did Sister Adina ask too many questions when it was regifted to the church.
The La Mariana expertise present was one misplaced alternative.
Kumu delivered a sterling rendition of “Tiny Bubbles.” However we did not get to see any of the hidden skills of the opposite characters.
As a substitute, Jin tried to con a captive viewers to put money into his enterprise.
The entire Rick subplot turned out to be a lot ado about nothing.
Whereas making ready for a major occasion for his bar, Rick spent approach an excessive amount of time fretting about his upcoming video name with Suzy.
He was like a teen boy worrying as a result of they hadn’t talked in regards to the standing of their relationship.
The massive shock was that she was pregnant, so their relationship deepened. However will that imply extra Suzy or not? I vote for extra.
To take a look at Jin’s previous appearances, watch Magnum P.I. on-line.
Did Thomas and Juliet do the best factor?
Would you prefer to see extra Jin?
Had been you stunned by Suzy’s admission?
