Steve returns to Hawaii after discovering the man who was made to look like him in Switzerland. Steve meets with Jonathan Kaye and some other people to find out why Steve was framed. They know Wo Fat is behind it. Steve learns that the only anomaly was their tracking station went out for a few seconds. Steve wonders if that is what Wo Fat is working on because they know that all this about Wo Fat trying to get 90 seconds for something and with their tracking system done for 90 seconds; what could happen? They look at everyone who could have done it, Steve thinks they should look at a scientist named Vogler and they do. They learn that Vogler came to Hawaii because his daughter suffered an allergic reaction to pollen that somehow got to where they live. But the doctor tells them it's impossible for the pollen to be there at that time of the year. So Steve thinks someone made the girl sick so that her father would have to go to Hawaii.

This is the only time the governor's full name (Paul Jameson) is shown. Although it is never used in dialog, it can be seen on a name plate in front of him. See more »


At the end of the show it was vital that everyone be in their place for the missile launch at 2:00 PM. When Danny arrives at the control room with Dr. Vogler, the time on his wristwatch (1:44 PM) is shown on a close-up. The next shot is of the clock on the wall with the time as 12:44. A few moments later the wall clock is shown again with the incorrect time. Finally, when the 2:00 PM deadline has almost arrived, the clock on the wall finally shows the correct time. See more »

Decent but part 1 and part 2 are not exactly a two-part episode.
7 April 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Unlike all the previous two-part episodes of "Hawaii Five-O", this one really tells two separate stories that are only tenuously connected. Because of that, you CAN watch the second part and not the first--and vice-versa. However, part 1 is so very good that I DON'T suggest you skip that one! As for part 2, it's good but not among the best of the season.

The show picks up after the last one. McGarrett's name has been cleared and inexplicably, he's placed at the head of an investigation of a defense project--something that is certainly NOT in his jurisdiction and this makes little sense. In addition, McGarrett seems to magically know where there is a security breech--like he had read the script to know what to do next! The security breech was initiated by the dreaded Wo Fat. It seems the Chinese want to do some missile testing and want to temporarily knock out the United States' radar system so they cannot monitor the results. To do so, Fat has uncovered a Russian double-agent (Donald Pleasance). It's amazing that Pleasance had been a mole for the communists so long without being detected, as when he's confronted, he's bug-eyed, sweaty and acts like a man who's a bit crazy---talk about over-acting!! So now it's up to McGarrett to save the free world.

Overall, there are some interesting plot elements but he plot really makes little sense. And, as I mentioned above, Pleasance's sweaty and bulging-eyed overacting is hard to take. Worth seeing but severely flawed.
