A federal agent is murdered on a plane bound for Hawaii. The investigation of this crime leads McGarrett and Five-O to uncover a terrorist plot by Dr. Erich Stoss to distribute a fungus that will wipe out the Hawaiian sugar cane crop, thereby destroying an industry and thereby forcing the U.S. and other countries to buy sugar from non-U.S. sources.

An odd and somewhat illogical plot...but it's still pretty good.
20 November 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Theodore Bikel is obviously not a nice person. That's because in the beginning of this episode, he kills a Federal agent who is aboard the same plane as he is--and does it in such a clever and amazing way that no one realizes this has occurred. Despite looking like an ordinary man, Bikel is one bad mutha. And, when McGarrett meets with the Feds, they indicate that the guy is a bit of a cipher, but they think he's an ex-Nazi assassin working for the Red Chinese!! Apparently, based on this and many other episodes, Hawaii has more Chinese spies than any other place on the globe (and this includes China)! This is yet another reason I have never visited Hawaii--and probably never will! Apparently, this evil swine has come to the Islands in order to infect the local sugar crops--thus destroying the economy. How this will destroy Capitalism is beyond me--especially since today Hawaii no longer produces sugar, as it can be produced more cheaply in many other countries--and the Hawaiian economy is not in shambles.

Linda Marsh is one of several other Communist agents in the film. Her odd accent accent is beyond me. She is supposed to be from South America but sound more Russian than Hispanic--though not exactly Russian either. To make things worse, her death scene is pretty cheesy as well. Where was the director in this--they should have caught all this.

Overall it's an okay episode. Although there are some logical errors and Ms. Marsh, it is quite entertaining and worth seeing.
