Storyline

Chris Vashon is male heir to the Vashon crime family, which now has considerable legitimate business holdings. The young Vashon, a rebellious sort, has been conducting robberies with friends. McGarrett sees the development as a way of striking back at the Vashons. However, Five-O discovers that's easier said than done, when Honare Vashon, Chris's father, bribes witnesses and Chris Vashon beats the rap in court. McGarrett doesn't give up and attempts to trap Chris Vashon again. This time, Vashon is fatally wounded by the lawman. Honare Vashon vows McGarrett will die. Written by Bill Koenig

The punk of the litter
1 October 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This was one of a series of episodes where Jack Lord and his 5-0 team had to deal with a Corleone like crime family called Vachon. Patriarch Luther Adler is semi-retired, his son Harold Gould is running the family enterprises now which are somewhat legitimate and he'd like to make that even more so.

Then there is the grandson Robert Drivas who is spoiled and gets his kicks with a couple of pals in heists. Can you imagine if Al Pacino's son had decided to do that instead of opera? The kid is putting at risk the family operations.

Of course the Hawaii Five-0 team sees an opportunity and takes it. They miss once, but the second time ends in tragedy.

The Vachons are a frightening group. Check them out.
