Storyline

When an Arab princess is kidnapped, a reporter appears to be aware of it so McGarrett asks her how she knew. But she refuses to divulge her source. Later her husband is contacted by the kidnappers who demand safe passage for their vessel through his country's waters. Obviously they're drug smugglers but he decides to give in because his wife is pregnant. Later the reporter is attacked by someone who tries to get some pictures she took of the prince.

Proof that the show was still going strong in season 10.
23 April 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

While I would not call "My Friend, My Enemy" a great episode of "Hawaii Five-O", it certainly is a strong one--and proof that after almost 10 complete seasons that the show was still very well made.

This show has to do with a king of some fictional Arab country. His wife ends up getting kidnapped AFTER a feisty Italian reporter publishes an article saying that there would be such a kidnapping! Not surprisingly, McGarrett wants to know how she knew, but being a reporter with high ideals, she refuses to divulge her source and the source is adamant that he does not want to talk with the police. Into this odd mix comes a king's first wife--a lady who is hiding a secret of her own.

Apart from watching McGarrett and Danno making sexist leers at the cute reporter, this is a very good episode. The script is interesting, has a few nice twists and kept my interest. Worth seeing.
