Hawaii Five-0 - Ua Helele'i Ka Hoku

The murder of an Elvis impersonator at a convention Max (Masi Oka) attended leads Five-0 to the discovery of diamond smuggling tied to a former case. With most of the other suspects also being Elvis impersonators at the convention where the victim was poisoned, Danny (Scott Caan) and the rest of the unit question the other Elvis-clad competitors quickly wrapping up the murder but not why the victim's body was stolen from the morgue or how his costume is related to one of Five-0's former cases.

Although most of the episode is centered around Elvis, the murder, and the stolen diamonds (which returns Jon Lovitz as Berry Burns), "Ua Helele'i Ka Hoku" also touches on Chin Ho's (Daniel Dae Kim) storyline when Gabriel (Christopher Sean) pops up to screw with his brother-in-law's life including laying the foundation for a new arc that might mean the end of Kono (Grace Park) and Adam's (Ian Anthony Dale) relationship.

The Elvis-theme to the episode is a bit goofy but does give the excuse for Jerry (Jorge Garcia) to spend much of the episode in costume as well as perform as the King at the end of the episode. I've been waiting for the other shoe to drop between Kono and Adam for awhile now but the show has made an effort to distance the character from any of his family's illegal ways making Gabriel's photos seem hard to believe. Either way, a look into Adam's true business practices means we should be getting plenty of Grace Park in the season's remaining episodes which always works for me.
