Hawaii Five-0 - Mōhala i ka wai ka maka o ka pua

Multiple-personality antagonists are a hard-sell as Hawaii Five-0 learns with "Mōhala i ka wai ka maka o ka pua" which casts Michael Weston as a traumatized schizophrenic off his medication who begins a series of violent acts. The unusual case allows for the return of Claire Forlani as profiler Alicia Brown who proves instrumental in ending things without further bloodshed. More of a running gag than a B-story, the episode also puts a stress counselor with McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin) for most of the episode, hired by his friends in hopes of finding ways to lower Steve's stress. Neither storyline is all that memorable, at least not in a good way, although Danny's (Scott Caan) attempt to look out for his partner is eventually appreciated.
