Hawaii Five-0 - Ho'opio 'ia e ka noho ali'i a ka ua TV review

The arrival of a hurricane crates dangerous situations for most members of Five-0. While Tani (Meaghan Rath) and Junior (Beulah Koale) are tasked with helping with the evacuation, a duty which will lead Tani into trouble when trying to convince a family from leaving their home, the Iolani Palace is tasked with being a shelter for those running from the storm which gets more complicated by the arrival of the FBI and their prisoner (Raoul Trujillo) who is known for his prison escapes. The only member of Five-0 not to have a stressful night is Danny (Scott Caan) who gives shelter to Rachel (Claire van der Boom) and Charlie (Zach Sulzbach) during the storm.

Hawaii Five-0 - Aia i Hi'ikua; i Hi'ialo television review

When one of McGarrett‘s (Alex O’Loughlin) old Navy SEAL buddies turns up dead with a stolen baby in a Cessna that makes an emergency landing on a Naval Air Craft Carrier, Steve is notified by NCIS and politely told to leave the investigation to the Navy. (Haven’t they ever watched the show?) The episode introduces Nazneen Contractor as NCIS Agent Emma Warren who orders McGarrett to stand down multiple times over the course of the episode (even going so far to arrest him at one point) before deciding it would be easier to work with Five-0 than against them. Working together, Five-0 and NCIS discover the reason behind the death of McGarret’s friend and reunite the child with its mother (Sarah Dumont).

This year’s Hawaii Five-0 Halloween episode offers a pair of unusual mysteries. The first involves a murder Jerry (Jorge Garcia) believes was committed as a child. Reunited with a group of his childhood friends, Eric (Andrew Lawrence), and Noelani (Kimee Balmilero) the group looks for a body buried decades ago by an axe-wielding killer only Jerry believes exists. While the premise itself isn’t bad, it does feel a bit late in the game to introduce a murder that has been haunted Jerry for his entire life this late in the show’s run.

Hawaii Five-0 - Ke Kanaka I Ha'ule Mai Ka Lewa Mai television review

When an undercover CIA agent (David Preston) is abducted on-board an incoming flight to Honolulu (in an elaborate attack that looks good on camera but makes almost no sense as opposed to grabbing the man on the ground), Danny (Scott Caan) leads Five-0 into the jungle where they encounter Chinese agents. The attempted kidnapping ties back to Greer (Rochelle Aytes) and the death of Miller (Jack Coleman). While completely out of character for McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) to give up the chance to hunt in the jungle, putting Danny in his place as a mentor to the younger members of the team freshens up the jungle chase the show has used several times over the years. Five-0 is successful in capturing both Greer and recovering the wounded agent, although Greer believes her knowledge of McGarret and their missions together can still cause problems for Five-0’s commander.
