Hawaii Five-0 "Ka No'eau (The Painter)" Episode Review

*Review contains spoilers, so read at your own risk!*

I have mixed feelings about this episode. It was good, especially the part with Danny and the money and even on that, I don't agree with what happened. But the whole case of the mob guy gone good was what I didn't enjoy too much.

Sure it was nice to see a mob guy gone good for once, but I don't know why I just didn't like it that much. However, seeing Steve jump over those cars like they were nothing was probably one of the best, if not the best, scene in the episode.

So, yeah, the case was a bit confusing when another mob guy gets killed because he is there to kill the other mob guy that has this village of the victims that he was supposedly killing all these years. He wants so badly to protect them after he had a change of heart, literally a few years ago. 

Long story short, they do end up getting protect them, catch the bad guys and the mob guy ends up getting to see all these people he's helped saved. Ok, I have to admit, that scene was pretty awesome.

Oh Danny, why did you do what you did? I still don't understand. After realizing his brother must have taken some of the money before he buried it, Chin gets the rest by going to someone he barely trusts so that Danny can get his brother back. Yes, the scene at the end was pretty cool, but still, why did Danny just up and kill the jerk without confirming that his brother was actually dead? For all he knows, he could be either kidnapped somewhere else or on a island living happily. We will never know seeing as the only person that did know is now dead and why Steve just stood there and didn't try to talk him out of it, I have no clue. I have a very funny feeling that perhaps Danny's brother is on all this and just needed the money and this is his brilliant idea on how to get it back. Ok, it sounds out there and I would hope he would never do something like that, but you never know what Matt would do to get money.


  1. I generally agree with you about the puzzling facts in this episode. I'd like to add a note about Danny: he had to put an end to the menace the drug lord was treating on him and his family and since there wasn't any legal means to stop him, he had to follow a kind of dark-ops with the assistance of an expert operator in these kind of affairs such as Steve who as you remember promised Danny to follow him through it when they were driving in Hawaii.

    Admittedly is a bit out of character for Danny to act as he did and possibly the writers should have worked harder to solve this situation: i.e. they did not even considered the drug lord may have been bluffing about having Danny's brother, or that he was already dead.
    I'm sincerely hoping that the writers would never consider to make a come back to life of Danny's brother: it would be too far fetched at this point and an extremely awry position for Danny's character to sustain!
    At this point let the dead stay dead and buried.
