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.

Trivia

Dr. Bergman's daily driven vehicle is an early 1970s Volkswagen Type 181 sport utility vehicle, sold in the USA as The Thing between the 1973/74 model years - it was discontinued in the USA after the 1975 model year due to DOT safety regulations due to its classification as a passenger car as opposed to a Sport Utility Vehicle (the 181 is the ancestor of the Crossover Utility Vehicle using a passenger car platform e.g. a Toyota Highlander or Dodge Caliber). The VW Type 181 was produced initially for the West German military between 1969-1983 for NATO forces, with civilian sales commencing during the 1971 model year; low demand for the civilian market in the UK and USA forced VW to move production to Mexico in the early 1970s where it was sold locally - its known use is for a resort vehicle used in Mexican resorts like the Las Brisas in Acapulco.

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

Kono Kalakaua: I can run his ID, trace his cell, run surveillance.
Chin Ho Kelly: How you gonna do that? You don't have access to HPD's database.
Kono Kalakaua: I'll use your password.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. That's not a good idea.
Chin Ho Kelly: You're not carrying a badge anymore, Kono. I can't guarantee HPD backup.
Kono Kalakaua: *You* guys are my backup.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: [Danny chuckles] Definitely been hanging out with McGarrett too long now.

"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.
