Storyline

Steve McGarrett has been arrested and jailed as sole suspect for governor Jameson's murder, on security tape, in fact being set up by Wo fat himself. Hitman Victor Hesse, father McGarret's murderer, stabs him during exercise, but as a ploy to enable Steve's escape, fearing Wo fat will dispose of all 'loose ends' lethally. Lieutenant Governor Denning, acting, mandates I.A. to clean up, which includes suspending Kono. Danny and Chin keep working within the police, ultimately joined by Steve to clear him and prove Wo Fat's guilt, meanwhile discovering a convoluted plot of crimes centered on dirty bomb-grade nuclear material with a surprising purpose.

Goofs

The HPD police vehicle that McGarrett commandeers after walking out of a gas station restroom has a floor shifter, which a real 2000-present Chevrolet Impala with the 9C1 police package does not have in real life. The police-spec Impala has the gear shifter on the steering column. See more »

Quotes

Chin Ho Kelly: [about the Police car used when he escaped] I'll take it up to the North Shore. Distract HPD.
Steve McGarrett: You are HPD, Chin. Remember?
Chin Ho Kelly: Just cause the badge says HPD, doesn't mean I'm not Five-O. You know that.
Steve McGarrett: You did what you had to do, okay? Right now I want to find Wo Fat.

"Ha'i'ole" was actually the first episode I have seen of Hawaii Five-O. As a loyal Lost fan, I could not resist seeing the reunion of Terry O'Quinn with Daniel Dae Kim. All in all, it was a pretty good episode. Obviously, there was an ongoing plot that left me feeling a little confused at times, but that is to be expected if you have not been watching. Otherwise, the episode could very well stand on its own. I loved the character Terry O'Quinn played, and at the same time I kept wondering if there were going to be any John Locke-esque quirks. The very idea of it actually made me a giddy with anticipation. I would like to see how it plays out with his character and will probably watch some more episodes, but unfortunately it is not my first choice for that time slot.
