“Ka Haunaele” (04/15/16) – While Five-0 investigates the theft of a high tech, indestructible suit built for the U.S. military, Jerry helps his sister try to save a captive elephant, on “Hawaii Five-0,” Friday, April 15 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

NFL players and brothers Michael Bennett (Seattle Seahawks) and Martellus Bennett (New England Patriots) guest star as themselves.

(“Ka Haunaele” is Hawaiian for “Rampage”)

Also guest starring in this episode are Taylor Wily (Kamekona), Dennis Chun (Sgt. Duke Lukela), Andrew Lawrence (Eric Russo), Zuleyka Silver (Isabel Ortega), Ted King (Clark Brighton), Nicholas Barnum (High Foster), Emmanuel DeJesus (HPD Officer David Atowa), Leslie C. Maharaj (Kelly Akela), Spam Laupola (Solomon Tuasopo), Hanale Ka’anapu (Taxi Driver), and Eddie Anderson (SWAT Commander K. Hidoko).

The teleplay for “Ka Haunaele” was written by Sean O’Reilly. It was directed by Jerry Levine.

“Hawaii Five-0″ is a contemporary take on the classic series about a new 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 is 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, eager to establish herself among the department’s elite; and Captain Lou Grover, who formerly headed Hawaii’s SWAT unit. Joining them is Jerry Ortega, a former classmate of Chin’s and the Island’s local conspiracy theorist.

While McGarrett continues to try to bring closure to his father’s case and closure to his mother’s past, 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).
