hawaii-five-0-ka-aelike

“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).

hawaii-five-0-kaili-aku

After Sara (Londyn Silzer) is kidnapped, Five-0 heads down to Mexico to get the girl back (unaware that they are the ransom). Working to uncover the identity of the kidnappers by the charged corpse of one left behind, the team learns too late that those responsible for Sara’s abduction are with the Diego cartel looking for a little payback given Five-0 dispatching a few of their members earlier this season. The episode ends unexpectedly on a cliffhanger not with McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) leading the group on a suicidal mission on an impenetrable compound against overwhelming odds but Chin (Daniel Dae Kim) choosing to exchange himself for Sara’s safe return.

hawaii-five-0-he-moho-hou

While Kono (Grace Park) reconnects with a former surf competitor facing hard times and Alicia (Claire Forlani) is paid a visit by Five-0’s chess-obsessed serial killer, McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) and his team search for a drug dealer who parachuted from a plane killing both a DEA agent (who wasn’t lucky enough to have a parachute) and the witness whose house they landed in. The drug-dealing storyline will provide most of the episode’s action, including Kono highlighted in the most kick-ass sequence of the young season, but the heart of the episode comes from Kono’s subplot reconnecting with an old rival and coming to understand what she can do, and what she can’t, to help the veteran.

hawaii-five-0-no-ke-alii-wahine-a-me-ka-aina

Hawaii Five-0 enters the world of espionage as Chris Vance guest-stars as a British spy hunting down computer code which terrorists plan to use to hack nuclear silos across Europe creating the largest nuclear meltdown in history. Aside from the script which expects us to believe all nuclear weapons across multiple countries can be hacked remotely by a single hack, “No ke ali’i wahine a me ka ‘aina” provides it share of enjoyable fun and intrigue as Five-0 first hunts down the spy and then begins working with him to stop a world-wide disaster.

hawaii-five-0-six-season-finale-1

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.

hawaii-five-0-pilina-koko

A few familiar faces return, and a new important supporting character is introduced, in an episode that sets up storylines well beyond next week’s two-part season finale. “Pilina Koko” hits close to home for one member of Five-0 when a woman is found murdered in her own home. While cleaning up the crime scene Hirsch (Willie Garson) is attacked by the sole witness to the crime, a thief who saw a targeted execution of the woman who was once Gabriel Waincroft‘s (Christopher Sean) girlfriend. Leaving behind a young daughter, Chin (Daniel Dae Kim) discovers he has a niece he never knew about.

Five-0 is called in when a babysitter (Cassi Thomson) is abducted by a vigilante targeting those who have gotten away with crimes. Given the abductor’s technical expertise, Five-0 calls in their own part-time computer genius allowing Martin Starr to return to the show as Toast, who McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) sadly rips away from his all-too-brief encounter with the alluring Ciara Hanna.
