Hawaii Five-0 - A Make Kaua

The season finale of Hawaii Five-0 not only brings us Kono (Grace Park) and Adam's (Ian Anthony Dale) wedding day, and the return of Catherine (Michelle Borth), but also the arrival of a nuclear warhead on the island which Five-0 frantically searches to find. At first Five-0 believes the thieves plan to sell the warhead to a member of Al Queda in Hawaii, but when the terrorist turns up to be nothing more than a decoy it becomes obvious the men plans for the weapon don't involve money.

Like Chin Ho (Daniel Dae Kim), I've always thought Kono could to far better than Adam but "A Make Kaua" squashes any remaining hope of the show pairing Danny (Scott Caan) and Kono together as a couple. Danny meanwhile continues to deal with the introduction of a new child into his life, although it's unclear how his relationship with Melissa (Lili Simmons), who doesn't make an appearance in the finale, will be effected. With the show still yet to be renewed for another season, the finale also refrains from stating how permanent Catherine's return to the island is leaving the show's producers options concerning her character and McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin) going forward.

"A Make Kaua" does work well-enough as a series finale should CBS choose not to bring it back for another season. Although another season would give Chin Ho (Daniel Dae Kim) a chance to deal with Gabriel Waincroft (Christopher Sean), who has continued to plague Chin over the final few episodes of the season, and better nail down the romantic futures of those members of Five-0 still yet to walk down the aisle.
