Storyline

A man named Winkler goes berserk when approached by a television reporter doing a "man on the street" story. After his arrest, Five-O and HPD can find no evidence that Winkler even existed until seven years earlier. For Five-O, this is just the start of a complicated investigation full of shadowy figures and murky motives. Winkler, for example, has a number of aliases and a photographic memory. Eventually McGarrett & Co. uncover a plot to assassinate a Soviet defector. Written by Bill Koenig

Trivia

The title comes from the question that the host of the TV game show "To Tell the Truth" asked the impostors to reveal to the panel and to the television audience who is the real guest and who are the impostors. See more »

Goofs

When McGarrett visits the men to verify Winkler's identity, he's supposedly in Denver. However, he actually walks up the stairs of the Ali'iolani Hale in Honolulu and palm trees are outside the window which would not be found in Denver's semi arid climate. See more »

An espionage episode again, this time focused on European origins...
28 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

I pretty much agree with the previous reviewer about the plot. Pretty convoluted, and the end scenes are very poorly handled. Very lazy. I think, however, that not enough credit went to the actors. This episode was very well acted, with Persoff (as always) and Throne both in particularly good form.
