Hawaii Five-0 - He 'oi'o kuhihewa; he kaka ola i 'ike 'ia e ka makaula

Halloween comes to Hawaii Five-0 with its usually odd events. This year's episode includes two strange cases. The first, involves a home robbery, murder, and the escape of a man living in a locked vault for the better part of three decades. While offering a bizarre situation for the team to bicker about, the truth behind the events turns out to be far less interesting than their initial theories. The other case involves the theft of the corpse of a recently-recovered murder victim from the morgue by a killer who wants to prevent an autopsy. The case seems personal to Noelani (Kimee Balmilero), but there's no set-up to events here (although the episode kinda, sorta, but not really hints at this being more than just a normal case to her), and (other than the body being stolen from her morgue) no apparent motive for the medical examiner to take events so personally. Although it's unusual to have an episode without Danny (Scott Caan), Hawaii Five-0 does bring back Masi Oka to allow for Max Bergman's Keanu-themed Halloween costume (and to make use of his adopted son to wrap-up on of the two cases).
