The crooks outfit what is supposedly a vacant building to look like the Five-O offices. When the bookshelf is being delivered to "Stash", however, on the left side of the door there are dirt marks on the wall where a framed picture had been hung, revealing that this was in fact the regular Five-O headquarters that had been temporarily divested of its furnishings.

The fake five 0 team.
10 June 2014 | by stevesfanSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this episode for its amusement value. But I have to say the simplest thing they could have done was to take Walker the the real Five O headquarters . Although they duplicated the offices , they could not duplicate the palace.and those wonderful stairs. But then that would have been too easy. Also if Walker did a lie detector test, why did they not do one the the five 0 team.

I really laughed at the pretend McGarrett's face when he was collecting the payoff. He looked as if he had ate something bad. What a grimace. Nice looking guy, tho not as handsome as our Steve. Shame they used a Voice-over. I would have liked to hear his German accent.
