Storyline

A tsunami warning is broadcast and all of Oahu is evacuated. However, the chief of the Tsunami Warning Center is missing and McGarrett and Five-0 investigate. However, several things don't add up and soon the team realizes that the warning is a hoax and is being used to cover up a robbery at the police vault. Unfortunately, it could mean the end of Five-0 due to the fact that the target of the thieves is the $28 million that McGarrett "borrowed" $10 million of to save Chin's life.

Trivia

The mystery of the $28 million stashed in an HPD asset forfeiture locker has another revelation - the case that Chin Ho worked on prior to his termination from HPD involved the U.S. Coast Guard. A rogue Coast Guard officer is the mastermind. See more »

Goofs

Near the end, right after a commercial, we see a brief shot of a deserted beach, deserted since everyone was forced to evacuate because of the tsunami warning. But none of the beach chairs got knocked over, all the towels are still reasonably positioned. It looks like everyone just calmly walked away. See more »

Quotes

Steve McGarrett: Just do what they say, Mamo, okay? There's a tsunami coming. It's not safe to be on the beach.
Mamo Kahike: Steve, I was here in '60, '64 and '75. I've seen 'em all. There's no tsunami today.
Steve McGarrett: Okay, I hear you, but you gotta get out of there just in case, all right?
Mamo Kahike: Okay, brah, but I'm telling you. Someone's blowing smoke up somebody's o'hole.

Best so far
2 February 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I really like the way the show is shaping up. After initial doubts about Alex, I'm with him all the way.

This is the best episode so far in my opinion. I love the way the meta plot about the missing 10 million dollars is shaping up. You really want to know what happens next.

I love the chemistry between the characters, Steven, Danno. There are beginning to be some really good secondary characters we really want to see coming back. Why not some interaction (jealousy maybe?) from HPD.

But, like the original, the real star is Oahu itself: it's so beautiful, and I really, really want to go there! Bring H50 back next season please!
