Tycoon Ian Adams, who marketed the North Shore surfing ethos, is expertly shot from the hills during an annual surfing event. He was Kono's benefactor, but greedily lost touch with morality like his business partner, real estate fellow tycoon Carlton Bass. Their greedy development plans were unconditionally opposed by the 'ka-po', Kawika's native Hawaian heritage defense 'militia', including two recently released ex-cons he denounced, and by regular ecologists, including Carlton's thus estranged son Ben, who turns out to be Ian's surprise heir.

Kono Kalakaua: And surfing was more than just a sport to him. It was Earth, and the sun and the sky and the water and the heart. It was everything and he passed that on to his surfers. And it made us better people. I need to pay him back for that and I can't do that sitting here.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: I understand.

Forgettable, but Sticks with the Theme
31 August 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode of Five-0 was pretty easy to forget. The scenes, characters, and plot were all ripped straight out of an episode of the original show (which I am yet to see, but have read about), and the progression was simply average. However, there are good things about this episode. For instance, the discovery that Ben was actually Ian's son caught me totally by surprise, and the atmosphere of "trouble in paradise" that was created by the plot and characters was interesting, even if unoriginal (then again, that's to be expected by an 8-season-long TV show I guess). Overall, not one of the best, but good enough to be enjoyable if you turn off your brain for a bit.
