Hawaii Five-0 - Ahuwale ka nane hūnā

Harry Langford (Chris Vance) returns to the islands working as protection for a British royal (Kate Beahan) and her teenage daughter (Alana Boden). When the daughter sneaks out of her protection detail, Steve (Alex O'Loughlin) and Danny (Scott Caan) help Harry track the girl down before the wrong type of people discover she's unprotected on the island. Really just an excuse to get Vance back on the show, "I Ka Wa Ma Mua, I Ka Wa Ma Hope" is one of the more enjoyable episodes of the season with a nice balance of tension and humor. I smiled more than once when the show worked in Danny's parenting skills of a precocious teenage daughter.

The episode's B-story feels a big truncated to fit into the shorter of the two stories, but it does offer the opportunity to continue to build up the sexual tension between Five-0's two junior members. Tani (Meaghan Rath), Junior (Beulah Koale), and Grover (Chi McBride) investigate evidence of a 25 year-old murder on videocassette which includes tracking down a crime scene more than two decades later and leads them to a hospitalized voyeur and, eventually, to their killer.
