Storyline

The body of a murdered federal agent is found, and Five-O is contacted by the government agency that sent him to Hawaii, which also sends another agent, Glen Fallon, to Hawaii to assist Five-O. McGarrett and Five-O discover that the murdered man was investigating the possibility of a "sleeper" agent within the March Foundation, a think-tank funded by the U.S. government. The evidence uncovered by McGarrett and Fallon begins to suggest that the Foundation's chief, Dr. Rathman, is the "sleeper" that the murdered agent was looking for. Written by aldanoli

Goofs

During the final scene in the March Foundation's offices, McGarrett and Dr Rathman (Andrew Duggan) are photographed with a gray metal bookshelf between them and the camera. The crew attempted to hide the boom mic behind the books and other objects on the top of the shelf, but the boom is visible through a gap in those objects, particularly when it is moved around.

An extremely weak beginning to Season 11.
29 July 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Season 11 was originally intended as the final season for "Hawaii Five-O". After all, it was, by that time, the longest running police show on TV. And, by then, the plots were starting to become a bit more uneven and even occasionally shoddy. This premier episode, "The Sleeper", is ample proof that things were starting to slip.

The show is about a possible sleeper agent on a top secret government project. The authorities already suspected this and the agent sent to investigate has been murdered. So far, this has the makings of a good episode. While having the state police investigating such matters never made any sense, most of these sort of shows were very exciting and worth seeing. However, there ended the interesting portion of the show. What followed was simply shoddy. First, it turned out that the crimes were committed as a result of hypnosis--a thoroughly stupid plot twist. Hypnosis cannot make you kill people or do evil--it it could, I sure would have tried this when I got my training in clinical hypnosis!! Second, and more serious, the crime was solved magically--with McGarrett and one of the suspects both independently coming up with the solution with no real evidence!! How they simply knew what was going on seemed to come from out of no where...which it did! Overall, a very sub-par episode--one that had too many plot holes to take very seriously.
