When two men turn up in the ocean, one of who was officially executed years ago, both tied to a ship officially in dry dock for the last decade, Five-0 uncovers the ugly truth behind a slave ship which only one of men was able to escape alive. Despite coming clean about working undercover to take down Five-0, Abby (Julie Benz) is offered a spot on the team when she tossed away her career in San Fransisco by refusing to continue the witch hunt any longer. Deciding to stick around, she joins the investigation to find the slave ship which Five-0 discovers is connected to their old friend Graham Clark.

Carol Burnett makes a return to Hawaii Five-0 as Deb McGarrett to bury her husband and to scratch a few items off her own bucket list before her time runs out as well. In the other storyline Five-0 investigates a murder tied to the discovery of an old WWII Japanese bunker filled with (now missing) explosions originally intended to be used as part of the attack on Pearl Harbor more than half a century ago. The episode is notable for moving past the teasing stage and throwing Chin (Daniel Dae Kim) and Abby (Julie Benz) together romantically, something that doesn’t go unnoticed by their teammates.

Hawaii Five-0‘s latest Halloween episode begins with the discovery of the severed body parts of four female victims leading Five-0 on the search for a serial killer who, in Frankensteinish fashion, is reconstructing the love his his life piece by piece. The show definitely loves going for the macabre in its Halloween episodes and “Na Pilikua Nui” is no exception as it leads McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) and Grover (Chi McBride) to an isolated farm house where the Navy S.E.A.L. will fight for his life against the mad man determined to reconstruct his lost love from the body parts of his various victims.

The public execution of a defendant during his deposition by a motorcyclist leads Five-0 to look into a group of stunt drivers notable not only for multiple moving violations but also for the hijacking of several trucks over the past few months. While initial information seems to suggest one of the group was hired to the local Samoan mob the truth is far more complicated and the reason behind the killing far more personal.

Hawaii Five-0 opens its Sixth Season with a story about pirates and buried treasure when an author investigating a late 19th Century pirate attack on the islands is found murdered for what he may have uncovered. Investigating the murder leads the group to the great-granddaughter (Samantha Lockwood) of one of the pirates and her partner (Jay Hector) who are willing to do whatever it takes to find the lost treasure. The episode has fun with the pirate theme involving Jerry (Jorge Garcia) in the investigation before Five-0 eventually tracks down the killers but not the elusive treasure which turns out to be more legend than fact.

The season finale of Hawaii Five-0 not only brings us Kono (Grace Park) and Adam’s (Ian Anthony Dale) wedding day, and the return of Catherine (Michelle Borth), but also the arrival of a nuclear warhead on the island which Five-0 frantically searches to find. At first Five-0 believes the thieves plan to sell the warhead to a member of Al Queda in Hawaii, but when the terrorist turns up to be nothing more than a decoy it becomes obvious the men plans for the weapon don’t involve money.

I do enjoy Kono (Grace Park) episodes. While “Mo’o ‘olelo Pu” does offer a case of the week involving a recently paroled meth maker getting back into the business which sent him to prison the main focus of the latest episode is Kono getting lost at sea while attempting to sail around the Hawaiian islands before her wedding day. Along with Kono stuggling to survive her ordeal at sea the episode also offers several flashbacks to her childhood, her relationship with her mother (Catherine Haena Kim), and Kono’s love of the ocean. It’s an unusual episode for the series but one that gives us greater insight to a character not named McGarrett (a definite rarity) and offers the chance for Park to shine.

The murder of an Elvis impersonator at a convention Max (Masi Oka) attended leads Five-0 to the discovery of diamond smuggling tied to a former case. With most of the other suspects also being Elvis impersonators at the convention where the victim was poisoned, Danny (Scott Caan) and the rest of the unit question the other Elvis-clad competitors quickly wrapping up the murder but not why the victim’s body was stolen from the morgue or how his costume is related to one of Five-0’s former cases.
