Storyline

A German journalist, in Honolulu to interview an exile from the Greek military junta's rule, is shot down as he exits the airplane. The journalist survives, but barely, as the bullet came within an eighth of an inch of his heart. The exile, a doctor, takes an interest in the case and secretly moves the journalist into his fortress-like mansion to take care of him himself. But McGarrett becomes suspicious as various details to the shooting don't add up, and comes to think the shooting was a setup for a very different assassination attempt. Written by Peter Harris

Why is this plot so improbable?
19 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What is it so improbable about wanting to assassinate a political figure and doing so with an extremely complicated conspiratorial plot? A Secret Service agent will take a bullet for POTUS. It is the nature of political service. In a world where assassinations occur with the same frequency as changes in the weather, is this episode is no less believable than any other real life scenario? No. The assassin is willing to take a bullet in order to accomplish his assignment, one which is intended to allow him to remain covert and live. In addition, he fingers another assassin in order to further shield his cover. This is actually one of the best Five-O episodes in the series, and assuredly the best of Season 3. It is the epitome of a thriller!
