A darn good episode.

9/10

McGarrett receives a call from the IRS on the weekend. It seems that someone the agency wants for tax fraud has fled to Hawaii and is currently on a plane bound there. So, McGarrett and the gang go to meet the plane--only to discover the suspect dead in the planes lavatory! Obviously someone murdered him and took the dead man's bag--which was stuffed with $600,000! However, there was a glitch in the killer's plan, as when he rushed from the plane (in disguise) to get the dead man's bag, by accident he got someone else's and these innocent folks got the cash! So, the killer spends the episode looking for the cash and killing anyone who gets in his way. Who is the killer? Well, tune in and see for yourself--I don't want to spoil it.

This show had a very novel plot--clever, VERY violent for the series and had some really nice twists. I particularly loved the ending where you have Jack Dodson ('Howard' from "The Andy Griffith Show") acting like an action hero (very briefly) as well as a SUPER-violent ending that you just have to see. Gritty and exciting!
