Storyline

Greggs, a land developer has a zoning man, Huffman in his pocket. But because Huffman starting offering his services to other developers, 5-0 has built a case against him. Greggs knowing that Huffman will turn on him to save himself, calls him telling him to meet him. But instead Greggs sends one of his men, Koa to meet him. Koa kills him and was about to leave when a car drives off. It seems like a film maker saw Huffman's car and took his wallet. He dropped one of his film cans. Koa finds it and gives it to Greggs who has it developed and sees it's footage of a surfer so he sends his man, Cass to find him. Steve upon learning of Huffman's death investigates and learns about Koa. He sends Danny to pick him up and Koa resists and pulls the knife he sued on Huffman. They arrest him for assaulting Danny. While trying to get move evidence on him, they learn that Huffman's credit cards are being used, so they try to find the one using them, the film maker. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Aside from one or two logical jumps, it's a pretty good episode.
13 April 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The show begins with a man being murdered on the beach. It seems that he's being indicted and his 'friends' have sent an assassin to make sure he doesn't talk. However, at the same time this is happening, a petty little thief is stealing the now dead man's wallet out of the nearby car. When the killer is about to leave, he happens upon the guy (Perry King) and King beats a fast getaway. Unsure if the thief saw anything, the killer tries to find the guy in order to silence him. But, when the assassin is jailed on suspicion of the murder, his bosses spring into action--looking for the beach guy who, COMPLETELY INEXPLICABLY, drops a roll of film--making it not especially difficult to find the dummy. In fact, this is a problem with the show--it's all too easy--as is the ending. In addition, sometimes McGarrett and his posse seem to make a lot of logical jumps in this one. Perhaps they just read the script and could anticipate what would happen! Not a terrible episode--particularly if you think surfing is super-cool. Otherwise, a bit below average but entertaining.
