Storyline

A reclusive, Howard Hughes-type billionaire is implicated in the murder of one of his associates. The businessman abducts McGarrett, who was on his way to the scene of the murder. The businessman is afraid of germs and has elaborate decontamination procedures on his yacht. The businessman tells McGarrett that he is innocent and being framed. The businessman wants to sell off his various companies to concentrate on developing a "steam car" that will run on natural gas and have few emissions. The business associates opposed the move and the leading opponent is the one who has turned up dead. McGarrett doesn't trust the billionaire but Five-O's investigation also turns up evidence that the killing was not as simple as it appeared. Written by Bill Koenig

A bit hard to believe...but pretty cool.
12 April 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode begins with a murder. However, before McGarrett can respond to the call, he's kidnapped! Oddly, however, no harm is intended as he's been brought to the man implicated in the killing. This crazy reclusive man (Barry Sullivan) is obviously based on Howard Hughes, as he's deathly afraid of germs, has his own private army of security people and is a multi-billionaire. This nutty eccentric tells McGarrett that he did NOT commit the crime and gives him a pep-talk about how he couldn't have committed it and how he trusts McGarrett will do a thorough investigation--then he has McGarrett taken back to his office. While McGarrett obviously resents the rich guy's tactics, there are many aspects of the case that don't ring true and it's soon obvious that this was an intricately constructed frame-up. The big question is which of three employees is behind it AND how could they kill a man at long distance with a gun with a very short effective range?

This particular show is a bit complicated and thoroughly unbelievable. Yet, because it is pretty interesting and the acting is so very good (the guest stars are impressive--with Sullivan, Ed Flanders and Milton Seltzer among others). High on the cool meter...low on the believability meter! Plus, I liked the final exchange between Sullivan and Jack Lord--it was well written and pretty funny.
