Hawaii Five-0 - Luapo'i

The last episode of Hawaii Five-0 before the season finale centers around the death of a bounty hunter killed alongside a local police officer by a dirty cop (Michael Rodrick) from the mainland responsible for the deaths of several young women. Offering a chance to bring back Duane Chapman for another cameo, the episode also co-stars Brad William Henke as another bounty hunter who turns over the fugitive not to police but the father of one of the man's victims. Along with the main storyline "Luapo'i" also brings back Chin Ho's (Daniel Dae Kim) concerns about Adam's (Ian Anthony Dale) criminal ties and introduces new drama into Danny's (Scott Caan) with the return of Rachel (Claire van der Boom) and the revelation that he is indeed the father of her son who is in desperate need of a bone marrow transplant. Personally, I was happy when the show finally threw in the towel on Danny and Rachel. Aside from complicating Danny's new relationship with Melissa (Lili Simmons) the reveal of Danny's sick son only injects the wrong kind of drama back into the show. And despite the big tease of Chin-Ho confronting Adam, the episode dispenses with the potential wedding hurdle so quickly you have to wonder why the writers even bothered to include it.
