Storyline

Stephen Boyd, in his last role (he died three weeks after this episode wrapped filming) plays a member of a Northern Irish splinter terrorist group who disguises himself as a priest in order to buy weapons and bombs in Hawaii. He meets a gullible Catholic United Ireland supporter and uses her as a pawn to finance his buys and witness his murder of the supplier, all the while muttering platitudes in her ear to conceal the fact that his group has been disavowed by the IRA and is dedicated to causing as much mayhem on the Emerald Isle as possible -- such as blowing up a school bus full of children.

Goofs

When Danny walks into McGarrett's office he tells him to look at page six of the newspaper. He opens the paper and looks at the right hand side of it (complete with a shot of his right hand thumb in the picture). This would be an odd numbered page, presumably page seven. See more »

Unusally Moving!!
2 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

The beginning of this episode had a tombstone on a grave -- in which a person died in 1977. McGarrett had a tete-a-tete with this priest. The priest in question was originally running a children's home for orphans. McGarrett was not aware the priest was being an impostor for an Irish terrorist group -- while funding their army for weapons for the soldiers in Ireland.

McGarrett's suspicions became more obvious to him. He finds a tugboat leaving Hawaii for Ireland. McGarrett jumped off the bridge after abandoning his 1974 Mercury Marquis in order to arrest the guilty parties in question. He eventually found out the pastor's illegal arms operation; then he eventually arrested the priest for espionage and conspiracy. Footnote: Director Don Weis did a superb job in preparing for the first episode of the 1977-1978 Television Season. The end result: A 9.1!!
