Hawaii Five-0 - He Moho Hou

While Kono (Grace Park) reconnects with a former surf competitor facing hard times and Alicia (Claire Forlani) is paid a visit by Five-0's chess-obsessed serial killer, McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin) and his team search for a drug dealer who parachuted from a plane killing both a DEA agent (who wasn't lucky enough to have a parachute) and the witness whose house they landed in. The drug-dealing storyline will provide most of the episode's action, including Kono highlighted in the most kick-ass sequence of the young season, but the heart of the episode comes from Kono's subplot reconnecting with an old rival and coming to understand what she can do, and what she can't, to help the veteran.

Largely disconnected from the rest of the episodes, Forlani's opening and closing scenes bring the season's focus back to the vigilante serial killer who has pulled profile into the game with Five-0. Although Julie Benz doesn't appear in this episode, another Angel alumni makes an appearance as Elisabeth Röhm is introduced as Five-0's leading suspect for the killer who has been toying with McGarrett and his team all season.
