Storyline

Wo Fat brings in an assassin to kill a man who made a tour of Communist China and got a good look at its nuclear facilities. The spy freaks out and runs just before the sniper pulls the trigger, and it takes three shots to bring him down. When the man is still alive with a bullet next to his brain, Wo Fat and his goons contact the top neurosurgeon in Hawaii with a request to make sure the spy dies on the operating table. To ensure his "cooperation," the goons kidnap the doctor's daughter and hold her on a boat. McGarrett and a Federal agent embark on an elaborate case of counter-espionage to trick Wo Fat into going back to Peking/Beijing and getting the Party bosses to tear down their nuclear reactors -- and to find the girl, her kidnappers and the mole who tipped off Wo Fat in the first place.

Trivia

The title is taken from Ecclesiastes 3:2. This biblical passage was popularized by the 1962 song "Turn! Turn! Turn! (to Everything There is a Season)," music by Pete Seeger. The Byrds' version was a number one song in December 1965. See more »

Pretty Good

Nice season opener including Wo Fat in another attempt to bring havoc to McGarret's island.

Central intelligent agent's must fight to keep an informant alive while Wo Fat wants him dead. The choice that a brain surgeon must make brings another dimension to this episode. Does he stick to the oath he made as a doctor while putting his 9-year old daughter in great peril? If you are a parent, it's something that makes you think about such choices.

While this episode reveals a touch of humanity in Wo Fat, it fails to deter your contempt for a man that would put a child in harms way in this manner.

Well written!
