Storyline

Honolulu policeman Lew Morgan appears to be cracking after his wife is killed. Morgan also is an old friend of Five-O's Dan Williams, who takes a personal interest in the case. It turns out that Morgan's wife, Marjorie, had affairs with other men. The lead suspect is Gary Oliver, a criminal who was Mrs. Morgan's latest lover. Morgan kills Oliver, an apparent case of a grief-stricken husband taking vengeance. But Five-O's probe shows the case is more complicated. Written by Bill Koenig

A Cop Going Bad!!
8 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The opening clip of "Most Likely To Murder" began with Marjorie Morgan's dead body lying on the carpet. Steve McGarrett and Dan Williams were surprised and shocked about Officer Lew Morgan's wife killed the previous night. Lew Morgan was restless from the untimely death. Five-O had their hands full into investigating the death ... as to whether another person actually killed Lew Morgan's wife ... or was the death a cover-up because of infidelity.

The detectives had asked the house keeper some questions about what happened between 10 p.m. that night and 3 a.m. the following morning. Meanwhile, Lew Morgan was grieving silently at the funeral. Dan Williams invited Lew Morgan to his apartment to spend time to recover from the devastating death. From there, Five-O had supposedly suspected Gary Oliver as the main suspect in Marjorie Morgan's murder. Gary Oliver -- as a juvenile offender -- spent eighteen months in the Illinois Youth Reformatory for armed robbery. He spent time messing around with other women. His girlfriend was with Gary Oliver at their home -- for which he ran through a window and escaped from the police -- when they tried to arrest him for suspicion of murder.

In the latter part of the episode, Lew Morgan roughed up Gary Oliver's girlfriend -- and slapped her -- for not finding out where he was hiding. Dan Williams located Lew Morgan in his apartment. He had a transistor radio for himself; he went out to find Gary Oliver in defiance of Five-O's orders. Gary Oliver's former girlfriend -- Gloria -- was forced to help him to obtain money to leave Oahu ... all in order to avoid detection of Lew Morgan. Gary Oliver was alone in an apartment ... or so it seemed to him. Lew Morgan obviously barged right in for one purpose: murder Gary Oliver because of his affair with his wife.

Lew Morgan fired two fatal shots into Gary Oliver's chest. An instantaneous death occurred from the gunfire. Lew Morgan used a telephone to speak to Hawaii Five-O. The end result was obvious in detail: Steve McGarrett noticed the dead body on the bed; he then had the officers arrest Lew Morgan. Dan Williams was outraged and bitter about Lew Morgan for dealing with Gary Oliver. In the end, the house keeper made a statement -- on tape in Steve McGarrett's office -- that Gary Oliver did have an alibi between the hours of 10 p.m. at night and 3 a.m. the next morning. She did not tell them that he was present on the property ... for fear of being implicated as an accessory to first-degree murder ... not to mention her fear of Gary Oliver. The District Attorney indicted -- in their obvious wisdom -- Lew Morgan on two counts first-degree murder ... instead of one count second-degree murder. A Fat 10.4!!
