‘NCIS: Hawai’i’ Proves No Boat Is Safe With Explosive Video

by Suzanne Halliburton

We’re starting to notice a trend. The newest episode of NCIS: Hawai’i will feature lots of big, booming bangs.

So flip the TV on this Monday night if you like to watch buildings blow up. Or, watch if you were intrigued by NCIS: Hawai’i in its premiere episode last week. You want to see more of Jane, Kai and Ernie and their other office buddies.

The show dropped another preview clip Sunday of Monday’s episode. And get this, the show is calling it Boom. The video is captioned “Whoops there goes his getaway boat. #NCISHawaii.

In this clip, agents Jesse (Noah Mills) and Kai (Alex Tarrant) would like a word with a suspect. And as you can see, the suspect decided to run. He jumped into the boat and said boat then blew up.

In Boom an NCIS: Hawai’i Agent Dies

There will be several of these blowup scenes. From another preview, we know there will be one death connected to an explosion.

In Boom, NCIS: Hawai’i agents will track down a group of criminals who are using old-school dynamite to help with their robberies. In the opening scenes, we see agents Karl and Melissa doing a perfunctory patrol in their armored vehicle. Melissa starts chatting about family, mentioning how her son likes to wake her up way too early in the morning.

Karl cracks that her anecdote is “a strong argument for living alone.” Melissa realizes that Karl isn’t in a talkative mood. As she’s about to apologize, boom, the vehicle blows up. Karl pulls himself out of the wreckage as Melissa calls for help. A group of masked men draw guns on the two. One kills Karl.

Neither Karl nor Melissa were in the opening episode of NCIS: Los Angeles.

Later, Tennant (Vanessa Lachey) and Kai go visit one of Tennant’s contacts, Norman Gates, a military expert on explosives. Gates’s nickname is Boom Boom. And he demonstrates the different sorts of blasts.

“You want to take out an entire building, let the world know you’re there,” says Boom Boom, “TNT is your wingman.”

The criminals likely are using dynamite left over from World War II. Gates knows where some of it is stashed on the islands because he and his men have had to track it before.

“That’s good old-fashioned American kick ass.” Boom Boom tells Kai and Tennant.

The rest of the NCIS: Hawai’i episode deals with other issues, including Kai’s search for a new place. Plus, there will be more of Lucy (Yasmine Al-Bustami) and Whistler (Tori Anderson). And the preview says “Ernie’s (Jason Antoon) mission in the field is more alarming than he expected.”

NCIS: Hawai’i enjoyed a nice premiere last week. With NCIS as its lead-in, it drew an audience of 6.6 million. Also consider the show was going head-to-head with a chunk of Monday Night Football. The series sported the largest premiere for any new show on the fall network schedule.
