Hawaii Five-0 - Waimaka 'ele'ele television review

While the episode’s backstory allows the show to work in Adam‘s (Ian Anthony Dale) current job, and his discovery of a bone at construction gives him reason to suspect that human remains may have been buried there, the episode’s main focus involves a group of former soldiers turned bank robbers whose latest score causes the death of a Pearl Harbor veteran on the way home with his granddaughter (Lexi Atkins). Dylan Bruno becomes the latest Numb3rs alumni to make an appearance on the show as the leader of the robbers who have deeply personal reasons for their crimes and have no intention of being scared off by Five-0.

Hawaii Five-0 - Ua Malo'o Ka Wai TV review

A ship full of dead bodies sends Five-0 to the island of Lanai where McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin), Danny (Scott Caan), Chin (Daniel Dae Kim), and Kono (Grace Park) believe Yakuza big wig Michelle Shioma (Michelle Krusiec) has set up a new drug smuggling operation. Captured by Shioma’s men, but still outgunned, it takes Jerry (Jorge Garcia) sending in the cavalry to save the day, which also earns Five-0’s special consultant the prize he’s been waiting years for.

Hawaii Five-0 - Huikau na makau a na lawai'a television review

After his stakeout turns into a kidnapping, private eye Harry Brown (William Forsythe) enlists the help of a Five-0 to find a missing woman (Lena Georgas) whose husband believed was having an affair. After his refusal to pay, the man’s mistress (Melanie Rains) is taken by masked men as well, leaving McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) and his team limited time to find both women. The case has a twist you’ll likely see coming if you are paying attention, but the tension still works well-enough. The showdown with the kidnappers also shows off Kono‘s (Grace Park) sharpshooting skills.

Hawaii Five-0 - Ka pa'ani nui television review

Hawaii Five-0 uses a staple of movie and television villains for it’s latest episode when the death of a young woman in a remote region of Hawaii leads them to suspect that a Nazi war criminal has been in hiding for 70 years. The B-story involves the unrelated homicide of a rich dickhole on the island looking to go shark hunting. While the evidence initially seems to point to the groups protecting sharks, the truth is actually quite the opposite.

Hawaii Five-0 – Ka ‘aelike

Hawaii Five-0 - Ka 'aelike television review

“Ka ‘aelike” is a strange episode that wraps-up the show’s big mid-season cliffhanger before the opening credits even roll. Quickly sent back to Hawaii, with Chin (Daniel Dae Kim) now having custody of Sara (Londyn Silzer), the Five-0 crew gets back to business as usual for the case of the week. It’s odd for the show to throw away such a big lead-in, and I wonder if something larger wasn’t originally planned (involving the impregnable stronghold where the bad guys don’t even bother to take Chin), but was cut for either time or cost. Plus, the (completely unnecessary) involvement of Adam (Ian Anthony Dale) seems to be included for the sole purpose of helping Adam and Chin bury the hatchet (and possibly set-up trouble or the parole later this season).
