Storyline

A plane arrives in Hawaii with 300 passengers aboard, including a tour group of 40. After everyone has left the plane, however, a stewardess discovers that one remaining passenger is dead, the victim of a stabbing with a thin instrument of some kind. Then a woman is discovered dead in a tropical park with a similar wound. Because the victim on the plane turns out to have been a CIA agent, McGarrett contacts Jonathan Kaye in Washington, and learns that the killer may be a mysterious hit man known only as "Raymond." With little information about either the killer or his intended victim, McGarrett assigns officer Sandi Welles (seen in the previous season's "Loose Ends Get Hit") to go undercover as a guide with the tour group from the plane, hoping that she can discover something.

Goofs

At the beginning of the show, a Boeing 707 arrives at the HNL airport. We then see the interior of the aircraft, which is consistent with this type of aircraft. However, after the body is found aboard, McGarrett asks the flight attendant how many people were aboard and she responds, "Three hundred." A 707 could not carry this many people. See more »

A very good episode...even though Chin Ho and Officer Welles are idiots!
19 March 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a very good episode--even if the officers working for Five-O seemed pretty stupid for once. Most of it is because the plot is solid and the guest star (Cliff Gorman as an assassin) is quite good.

The episode begins with a plane landing in Oahu. After the rest of the passengers have exited, the flight attendant notices one of them in their seat. She thinks he's sleeping--he turns out to be dead. It seems that SOMEONE on the plane killed him during the trip--quietly and expertly. The signs point to an international assassin whose identity is unknown and he might be in a charter tour group sitting with the dead man. However, they can't just arrest all of them...and the proof is lacking.

Soon after they land, the killer arranges to 'accidentally' bump into a lady working for the Ilikai Hotel. He's charming as can be and she's quite taken--but all he really wants to do is pump her for information. And, when she starts to suspect, she's victim #2.

Now with two deaths and the strong likelihood one of the tour group members is a killer, they send perky Officer Welles (Amanda McBroom) to be the tour guide--following and observing. She soon thinks that perhaps one member (Gorman). So what does she do? Yup, like any good cop, she initiates an illegal search of his room (with no search warrant). He catches her and decides to take her along on his job--as insurance. But, Welles is an idiot and when she SHOULD try to alert others for help, she just walks by officers standing by the airplane as the tour group arrives back in Oahu. But, proving she's not the only stupid one, when she and the assassin pass by Chin (Kam Fong), she clearly alerts him in a code ANYONE WITH A BRAIN COULD UNDERSTAND that something is amiss. Much later, Chin thinks perhaps something is amiss!! In real life, Kam Fong was actually a retired cop from Hawaii--and perhaps this sort of attention to clues is why he retired and became an actor! In the end, though, goodness prevails thanks to McGarrett.

Overall, despite idiotic actions of two of the cops, the episode is still rather enjoyable and worth seeing.
