‘Hawaii Five-0’ Episode Guide (Oct. 20): The Lives of Five-0’s Informants Endangered

“E uhi wale no ‘a’ole e nalo, he imu puhi” (10/20/17) – The lives of Five-0’s informants are in danger when the HPD system is hacked and one ends up dead, forcing McGarrett to enlist the help of hacker Aaron Wright (Joey Lawrence), who he just imprisoned, on “Hawaii Five-0,” Friday, Oct. 20 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

(“E uhi wale no ‘a’ole e nalo, he imu puhi” is Hawaiian for “No Matter How Much One Covers a Steaming Imu, The Smoke Will Rise”)

Guest starring in this episode are Leonardo Nam (Harley Taylor), Anthony J. Silva, Jr. (HPD Instructor Collins), Aris Springs (Troy), Rob Ishihara (Eli), Reggie Lee (Joey Kang), Narayan Gabbard (Local), Jesse Lewis (Kahili Marks), Donald Li (Mr. Kang), Reb Beau Allen (Paramedic), Henry Kapono (Tropics Musician), and Hio Pelesasa (Thug).

“E uhi wale no ‘a’ole e nalo, he imu puhi” was written by Rob Hanning and directed by Antonio Negret.

“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 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 who is committed to keeping the islands safe for his children; Captain Lou Grover, who formerly headed Hawaii’s SWAT unit; Jerry Ortega, the islands’ local conspiracy theorist; and Tani Rey, a bold, recent police academy graduate. Helping them is Adam Noshimuri, a friend with old ties to a deadly crime family; Junior Reigns, a former SEAL who comes to McGarrett looking for a job; Kamekona, a local entrepreneur who has his pulse on the Island; Sgt. Duke Lukela, a trusted member of the HPD; and medical examiner Dr. Noelani Cunha.

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), Chi McBride (Lou Grover), Jorge Garcia (Jerry Ortega), and Meaghan Rath (Tani Rey).
