Hawaii Five-0 - O Ke Ali'i Wale No Ka'u Makemake

Hawaii Five-0 ends its Sixth Season with a two-part season finale. Both offer tense episodes with membres of Five-0 in grave danger, although it appears the whole team will make it back for another season (now that the show has been officially renewed by CBS). “Pa’a Ka ‘ipuka I Ka ‘Upena Nananana” wraps up the Gabriel Waincroft (Christopher Sean) storyline as the would-be super-villain gets himself shot by a scared junkie and hunted by the agents of Michelle Shioma (Michelle Krusiec). Despite putting their lives between Waincroft and the Yakuza assassins, Five-0 is ultimately unable to save the life of their enemy.

The two episodes are loosely linked by a storyline involving a deadly new drug killing victims across the island. The second episode also deals with a shooting as McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) is wounded in an undercover operation tracking the source of the drugs. The episode offers not one but two big hero moments for Danny (Scott Caan), although Five-0’s second-in-command (as usual) earns no love or credit at the end of the episode despite saving McGarrett’s life twice over the course of the episode by first landing the plane on the beach and later donating half of his liver to keep his partner alive.
