Storyline

A mentally disturbed former soldier buys a new rifle and ammunition after a sales clerk fails to check him out. The soldier even signs his name as "George C. Patton." He then holes up in a spot on Diamond Head and shoots out the tires of a motorist's car and proceeds to shoot two police officers, one fatally. McGarrett coordinates the police response. The more McGarrett finds out, the worse it gets. It turns out the sniper has a weird relationship with his mother. The mother, in turn, denies the former soldier is her son. Time is running out and Five-O must prepare to lead a police assault on the sniper. Written by Bill Koenig

Trivia

This was Herman Wedemeyer's first appearance as Duke. However, it would be a few years before he would become a regular character on the series. See more »

Goofs

After the opening titles, a high-angle shot shows eight or nine police officers at the base of the sniper's hill, moving forward behind three rolling police cars for cover. There is a black unmarked vehicle around which their cars move, and McGarrett - unmistakable in a slate blue suit and with his pompadour - stands near the left rear of the vehicle. A ground level shot shows that the black car is a Mercury, as well as the last three or four letters of the license plate. Then there's a cut and McGarrett - in that same black Mercury with the same license plate numbers - arrives on the scene with sirens blaring as if for the first time. See more »

User Reviews

The Late Great Jeanne Cooper is Superb!

Jeanne Cooper, who played Katherine Chancellor on, "The Young and the Restless", is the mother of a psycho former soldier who is confronting Steve McGarrett and the Honolulu Police Department with his snipers rifle. There is a lot of action and gun play. Another one of those message episodes that you'll find often in the series. The sniper is named Bill. His mother is Ann. That's Jeanne Cooper. When she arrives at the scene of the standoff, she has a brief, but dynamic exchange with McGarrett. They argue about her son and if she will help McGarrett to get her son off the hillside. It would be two years after this episode aired that Cooper would join the cast of Y&R. She would go on to become the most memorable Soap Opera star of our time, excuse me Eric Braeden.
