Storyline

The answer to the title question is never for a fanatic who recently lost his best friend, a Jap-hunter determined to track down the commander of a brutal Philippine prison camp in World War II. The former commander is now a well-respected Hawaiian manufacturer, so the young punk -- with surprising help from an unexpected source -- begins setting off WWII ordinance explosives at the manufacturer's plants, killing one and injuring several. McGarrett must find the bomber before he exacts elaborate eye-for-eye "justice" with a bayonet. Written by Peter Harris

During the last minute, I was ready to jam ANYTHING in my ears to make it stop!!
5 March 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Up until the last minute or so of the show, I would have scored this one a 6. But, the last minute...ugggh! See the show and see what I mean.

Some nut is blowing up various companies owned by Mr. Muromoto. And, oddly, they are using WWII vintage supplies--like land mines and grenades! Muromoto is very tight-lipped and McGarrett thinks there's more to the story.

The theme in this show is a bit familiar to folks who have seen a bunch of episodes of the series. An American who THINKS they have identified a Japanese war criminal living under an assumed identity has been used at least three times on "Hawaii Five-O". In season one they used this theme in "Samurai" (with, of all people, Ricardo Montalban playing a Japanese man!!) as well as in the episode "The Reunion". However, it hadn't been used in a while--so I could forgive this. What I had trouble with was how near the very end there was a surprise twist--a totally unnecessary surprise twist. Then, following the apprehension of the criminals, McGarrett begins pontificating about hate and world peace--and the show really lost me!
