Hawaii Five-0 - Ua Ola Loko I Ke Aloha

Carol Burnett makes a return to Hawaii Five-0 as Deb McGarrett to bury her husband and to scratch a few items off her own bucket list before her time runs out as well. In the other storyline Five-0 investigates a murder tied to the discovery of an old WWII Japanese bunker filled with (now missing) explosions originally intended to be used as part of the attack on Pearl Harbor more than half a century ago. The episode is notable for moving past the teasing stage and throwing Chin (Daniel Dae Kim) and Abby (Julie Benz) together romantically, something that doesn’t go unnoticed by their teammates.

While initial information seems to suggest one of the group was hired to the local Samoan mob the truth is far more complicated and the reason behind the killing far more personal.

Hawaii Five-0 - Mai ho'oni i ka wai lana mâlie

Hawaii Five-0 opens its Sixth Season with a story about pirates and buried treasure when an author investigating a late 19th Century pirate attack on the islands is found murdered for what he may have uncovered. Investigating the murder leads the group to the great-granddaughter (Samantha Lockwood) of one of the pirates and her partner (Jay Hector) who are willing to do whatever it takes to find the lost treasure. The episode has fun with the pirate theme involving Jerry (Jorge Garcia) in the investigation before Five-0 eventually tracks down the killers but not the elusive treasure which turns out to be more legend than fact.
