Hawaii Five-0 - Ka Luhi

"Ka Luhi" introduces Missy Peregrym as Danny's (Scott Caan) sister Bridget who is on the island for a work conference. With the smallest of needling from McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin), Danny begins to pick up on some vibes between Bridget and her friend and grows concerned that Bridget may do something while on holiday to destroy her marriage. Given that she returns to New Jersey at the end of the episode, I'm not sure how much more we'll be seeing of her but I did enjoy Peregrym's guest-spot here and hope the writers find a way to bring her back to the island again.

The case of the work involves a 10 year-old murder who a teenager (Joey Luthman) under hypnosis begins to remember. With the evidence pointing to an original suspect, who eventually confesses under pressure from the cop who has been harassing him for a decade, the case seems open and shut. McGarrett has other ideas and sets out to find out what really happened all those years ago. Because of the set-up the episode has less action than normal, no car chases, not big stunts, and no legally-questionable interrogations. Because of this, and Peregrym, "Ka Luhi" has a different feel than your average episode of Hawaii Five-0 which proves to be a nice change of pace.
