Offering the return of Michael Imperioli as local barber Odell Martin, the latest episode of Hawaii Five-0 focuses largely on McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) who finds himself in a stand-off with the barber and a young man (Steven Krueger) being hunted by the Armenian mob. Trapped in the barber shop without a phone (or any neighbor capable of hearing the hundreds of shots fired), Five-0′s commander manages to get all three men out alive, although a late twist puts the series of events in an entirely different perspective for McGarrett (as is evident by the episode’s tearful final reaction).

The idea of a member of Five-0 facing serious charges is hardly new as it’s become one of the show’s recurring themes (in fact it happens so often its almost unintentionally funny at this point). What offers a slight twist with “Pono Kaulike” is that in both instances the detectives are 100% guilty of the crimes of which they are accused as each tie back their actions following the kidnapping and murder of Danny’s brother.

Despite lying to Five-0 about being there in an official capacity, McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) and his team accept the assistance of Millford whose knowledge of the arsonist proves invaluable (and also puts her in danger when the man targets a hotel for his next arson).

First she’s used as bait to trap an art smuggler (White Collar‘s Willie Garson) into leading Five-0 to their attempted murderer and then she along with Chin (Daniel Dae Kim) goes undercover at an underground art auction selling stolen art to select connoisseurs.
