‘Hawaii Five-0’ Episode Guide (May 5): A Potential Oahu Terrorist Attack Investigated

“He ke’u na ka ‘alae a Hina” (05/05/17) – When McGarrett gets a tip that someone is plotting a terrorist attack on Oahu, Five-0 searches for those behind it before it’s too late. Also, Chin and Abby have a very difficult decision to make, on “Hawaii Five-0,” Friday, May 5 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

(“He ke’u na ka ‘alae a Hina” is Hawaiian for “A Croaking By Hina’s Mudhen”)

Guest starring in this episode are Taylor Wily (Kamekona), Ian Anthony Dale (Adam Noshimuri), Omid Abtahi (Naser Salaam), Willie Garson (Gerard Hirsch), Ingo Rademacher (Robert Coughlin), Nick Shakoour (Adnan Khalid), Leon Williams (Kalea), Herschel L. Gillins (Guard), and Terrell Clayton (CIA Officer).

“He ke’u na ka ‘alae a Hina” was written by Rob Hanning. It was directed by Krishna Rao.

“Hawaii Five-0” is a contemporary take on the classic series about an elite federalized task force whose mission is to wipe out the crime that washes up on the islands’ sun-drenched beaches. Detective Steve McGarrett, a decorated Naval officer turned cop, returned to Oahu to investigate his father’s murder and stayed after Hawaii’s former governor persuaded him to head up the new team: his rules, no red tape and full blanket authority to hunt down the biggest “game” in town.

Joining McGarrett are Detective Danny “Danno” Williams, a relocated ex-New Jersey cop – a working man in paradise who prefers skyscrapers to the coastline but who’s committed to keeping the islands safe for his young daughter; Chin Ho Kelly, an ex-Honolulu police detective and former protégé of McGarrett’s father, who was wrongly accused of corruption; Dr. Max Bergman, the quirky coroner; Chin’s cousin, Kono Kalakaua, a beautiful and fearless native; and Captain Lou Grover, who formerly headed Hawaii’s SWAT unit.

Joining them is Jerry Ortega, a former classmate of Chin’s and the islands’ local conspiracy theorist. The state’s brash “Five-0” unit, who may spar and jest among themselves, remain determined to eliminate the seedy elements from the 50th state.

“Hawaii Five-0” stars Alex O’Loughlin (Steve McGarrett), Scott Caan (Danny “Danno” Williams), Daniel Dae Kim (Chin Ho Kelly), Grace Park (Kono Kalakaua), Masi Oka (Dr. Max Bergman), Chi McBride (Lou Grover), and Jorge Garcia (Jerry Ortega).

“Hawaii Five-0” is produced by CBS Television Studios. It is executive produced by Peter Lenkov, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Eric Guggenheim. The series is based on “Hawaii Five-0,” created by Leonard Freeman
