Lord Danby and his wife are vacating in Hawaii. But, while on a shopping trip, Lord Danby says he's been overcome by the heat and tells Lady Danby to continue while he returns to his hotel. While returning to the hotel, Lord Danby kills an MI6 operative who has been tailing him and fakes his own drowning. These events caused Five-O to be involved in the case and soon McGarrett crosses swords with Harry Wells, a cagey MI6 agent. McGarrett & Co. must make sense of a murky case in which few people have incentive to tell the truth. Written by Bill Koenig

This one just seemed a bit muddled and dumb....
20 November 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Aside from having two incredibly erudite and sophisticated gentlemen as guest stars (Murray Matheson and Dan O'Herlihy), I felt this episode was a bit of a disappointment. The biggest problem is that the plot seemed a bit muddled and McGarrett's actions seemed a bit strange.

The show begins with a British lord (Matheson) and his wife (Juliet Mills) arriving in Hawaii. Soon after, Matheson fakes his own death. It turns out he's wanted by British Intelligence because he's apparently stolen some secrets and plans on selling them to the Chinese. Another agent (O'Herlihy) arrives and is trying to track down Matheson--and repeatedly O'Herlihy deliberately sabotages McGarrett's investigation--not just of the faked suicide but a murder related to this. This is where the show makes little sense. Although McGarrett has been urged by the State Department to assist British Intelligence, O'Herlihy repeatedly obstructs justice and SHOULD have been arrested on several occasions. But, McGarrett does nothing...until the ending where O'Herlihy cannot help but get arrested! It all seemed a bit sloppy and meddled to me.
