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

When good cops go bad...
3 January 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode features a young Tom Skerritt in one of his earliest roles. He did a particularly good job and it's well worth seeing.

The show begins with the wife of a cop (Skerritt) being found in her home, murdered. Who did it and why is a complete mystery at first, however, over time the Five-O team learn that the wife was quite the playgirl—with several lovers who COULD be the murderer. At the same time, Danno is pulled into the case because Skerritt is an old friend—and his heart bleeds for him.

Later in the episode, Skerritt begins to investigate the case himself. This is very reminiscent of an episode from Season One—where an older cop begins a one-man rampage to find out who killed his son (who was an up and coming boxer), though Skerritt's motives and goals are far darker…and deadly.

While not a great episode, it is very good and the acting is very good. My biggest reason for not giving it a higher score is that the plot is a bit familiar….just a bit. Oh, and by the way, the episode was directed by Nicholas Colasanto--that's 'Coach' from TV's "Cheers".
