Father / Son issues hit home for McGarrett. A head without a body leads the Five-0 on a merry chase looking for the murderer, the body, and the missing wife. Chin was more than a suspected dirty cop. Kono holds grudges and beats herself up. The day is saved, lives are changed and we get a life lesson in immigration.
The running CHiPS gag - really added to the episode and the dynamics.
Development of the relationships of McGarrett and Danny.
Character backstory for Chin - interesting dynamic with Kono and part of Chin’s past.
Tad too schmaltzy at the end, but that is getting pretty stock standard for the show.
No “Book him, Danno” in the show.
No Hawaii Five-0 Bingo - yes there was a dead body, but no-one got their kit off this week.
Way bit obvious with the clues.
The twists were miss-timed and really didn’t add to the story.
Felt like I was watching Blue’s Clues.
It isn’t often I am left a little off after Hawaii Five-0. If it hadn’t been for the CHiPS gag, this show would have left me rather cold. Very weak episode for this normally highly enjoyable romp of a show.
By the way, this week’s ep “He Kane Hewa'ole” means “an innocent man” which ties in with just how obvious everything was in this episode.
