hawaii-five-0-waimaka-ele-ele

While the episode’s backstory allows the show to work in Adam‘s (Ian Anthony Dale) current job, and his discovery of a bone at construction gives him reason to suspect that human remains may have been buried there, the episode’s main focus involves a group of former soldiers turned bank robbers whose latest score causes the death of a Pearl Harbor veteran on the way home with his granddaughter (Lexi Atkins). Dylan Bruno becomes the latest Numb3rs alumni to make an appearance on the show as the leader of the robbers who have deeply personal reasons for their crimes and have no intention of being scared off by Five-0.

A ship full of dead bodies sends Five-0 to the island of Lanai where McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin), Danny (Scott Caan), Chin (Daniel Dae Kim), and Kono (Grace Park) believe Yakuza big wig Michelle Shioma (Michelle Krusiec) has set up a new drug smuggling operation. Captured by Shioma’s men, but still outgunned, it takes Jerry (Jorge Garcia) sending in the cavalry to save the day, which also earns Five-0’s special consultant the prize he’s been waiting years for.

After his stakeout turns into a kidnapping, private eye Harry Brown (William Forsythe) enlists the help of a Five-0 to find a missing woman (Lena Georgas) whose husband believed was having an affair. After his refusal to pay, the man’s mistress (Melanie Rains) is taken by masked men as well, leaving McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) and his team limited time to find both women. The case has a twist you’ll likely see coming if you are paying attention, but the tension still works well-enough. The showdown with the kidnappers also shows off Kono‘s (Grace Park) sharpshooting skills.

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.

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 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.
