Ted Frazer, a Vietnam veteran, thinks he is cracking from mental strain. In reality, he is being tormented by fellow vet George Loomis. George makes Ted think he is kidnapping children (who George has really abducted). Ted's mother also wants nothing to do with him, increasing his emotional strain. McGarrett & Co. determine there's something wrong with George's story; he has told Five-O he was in Vietnam at about the same time as Ted when, in fact, they served in the same unit. Five-O must determine the motives behind George's lies. The answer lies in an incident that took place in Vietnam. Written by Bill Koenig

When McGarrett and Dan Williams leave McGarrett's office to visit Mrs. Watson about halfway through the episode, he grabs the coat to his light-colored suit. During the drive to her house, a shot of the interior of the car shows McGarrett wearing a dark blue or pinstriped jacket. But when they arrive at her house, he's wearing the light jacket that he was carrying as he left his office. See more »

Wow, this is a strange one...
3 January 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Now this is a strange episode! The show begins with a man asleep. He's being woken by his friend who tells him that the sleeping man has "done it again"—kidnapping and chloroforming a little boy—who is in the next room! The sleeping guy is apparently NOT a pedophile, as the kid is safe. The friend tells his now half-awake friend that he'll take the kid some place and let him go. A bit later, the kid is found—none the worse for wear. The friend, however, DID send the kid's family a ransom note, but it doesn't appear that they took any of the money. None of this really makes any sense…leaving you wondering why all this is occurring.

A bit later in the show, instead of things getting clearer, they actually becomes more confusing! First, the ransom notes are NOT sent to the families of the kidnapped kids (yes, there are more), but to one cranky woman. Later, it turns out this woman is the mother of the sleepy guy at the beginning of the show. It also becomes apparent that this guy did NOT kidnap anyone—and the 'friend' actually is doing this. But, in a bizarre twist, you find out the friend actually met the sleepy guy in the VA hospital and was his therapist!!! Why this therapist spirited the sleepy guy out of the hospital, keeps him heavily sedated, tells the guy he's kidnapping kids AND sends notes to the guy's mother is all very twisted and confusing. WHY?? Well, watch the show and find out for yourself.

This episode gets high marks for its originality, though it is also a bit far-fetched. Still, an interesting story and some dandy plot twists make this one well worth watching.
