Storyline

O'Hara, co-owner of a travel agency with ex-bookie Sam Green, is beaten to death by thugs with brass knuckles. Green organizes gambling junkets, which is draining revenue from a hood's gambling rackets. What's more, one of Green's customers refuses to make good on $120,000 in losses on a junket in Seoul. Green is being squeezed hard by the Hawaiian gangster and the Korean gambling house. Five-O's investigation becomes complicated after the losing gambler turns up dead; the loser was also having an affair with the wife of another customer on the Korean gambling junket.

Goofs

A man plunges to his death from a high rise balcony. Moments later the scene shifts to a shot of the body being rolled away on a stretcher from the point of impact. This is of course marked by the obligatory chalk outline of the body. Not a single drop of blood marks the pavement and the chalk outline is a lot "neater" than what you'd likely get with a nine story fall. See more »

It has some nice twists and surprises.

This episode of "Hawaii Five-O" features a guest appearance by Milton Seltzer--one of the most recognizable actors from the 1960s and 70s but whose name few would remember. He had played in a few previous episodes of the series, but here he was not a bit actor but the most importance guest on the show. If you look at his IMDb entry, it's impressive--he guest starred in at least 1830340123491 different shows during this era.

The show begins with a travel agent being beaten to death. It was intended as a warning to the agent's partner (Seltzer)--a man who organizes junkets to Vegas and South Korea for gamblers. Meantime, a client of Seltzer loses $120,000 and the mob-backed casino owner is ready to kill Seltzer if he doesn't manage to get the guy to pay for his notes--and so far, the jerk refuses. So, now the mob in Hawaii AND South Korea are gunning for Seltzer and he goes to Five-O for help. Where it all goes after that is filled with TONS of surprises--so many that I will say no more, as I don't want to spoil it for you.

Well-written, interesting and filled with great twists, this is an excellent episode of an excellent series. Watch it.
