Danny's ex-partner from the Honolulu P.D. is found dead in a luau barbecue pit. Danny demands the team must take his word that the man was incorruptible, although evidence piles up that he was involved in corruption surrounding the Mexican Ochoa cocaine cartel. Internal Affairs Sergeant Cage, who damaged Chin's reputation, is on the case but fails to shield it as HPD Detective Ahuna discretely joins the Five-O investigation. The deeper they dig, the dirtier everyone looks. Jailed human trafficker Sang Min holds a trump card, so Danny bids on it. Written by KGF Vissers

A spectacular performance by Scott Caan!
8 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

ITN METER: 9*********/10

This episode proves that Scott Caan ought to be the lead of the show and O'LOL his second banana. This episode revolved around Danno and even his partnership with Chin made Dae Kim's acting shine, instead of the soporific bore he usually is.

Scott is such a great actor, I am caught wondering whether he ad libs a lot or he's actually saying writer's lines. The "you understand me?" he intersperses his dialog with are delivered so often and always so naturally that I have a hard time imagining Scott talking any other way. What a waste that he normally has such little screen time!

Scott Caan is such an impressive actor, he actually makes Alex O'Loughlin enjoyable to me. He has a certain Film Noir vibe to him and reminds me a bit of Dana Andrews. He would have been perfect in those 40's films. He's the rare kind of men's man they claim "they don't make them like they used to". They don't. I am surrounded by submissive, incompetent weaklings on a daily basis. He's the exceptional exception. OK and for a White dude, he actually reminds me a lot of me. Have to take charge 24/7 because of the wimps & limp noodles around who won't assist, won't pull their weight, won't do their job. Danno is the kind of cop every cop needs as partner and every civilian needs to protect your civil liberties and values. I love this dude. Danno, not Scott because chances are he's nothing like Danno, but I do admire Scott Caan's superb and fantastic acting prowess.

I don't know why I'm giving this a 9/10, it's bar none my favorite episode. It's a solid 10/10, except for the actress who played Meka's wife: they couldn't find a fuglier minger in the entire island?

The end scene was superb with Danno keeping his word to the bad guy. Excellent writing, acting and everything in between. I love those art gallery scenes where Scott, Daniel and Alex wear black and white suits. They clean up well. That's one thing I'll give to AOL: homie cleans up nicely and they dress him very well. Maybe he should have just been a model? I don't know but I'm glad he was in this episode: Alex plays very well off of Scott, I just wish he were his second banana. They're the Starsky & Hutch of the (no longer so) new millennium.
