HONORABLE MENTION | This was not the ending to the Matt Williams storyline that Hawaii Five-0 viewers were expecting. Procedurals tend to wrap up arcs in tidy ways, but as this roller coaster took a nasty turn,Scott Caan made sure we rode it out with him. Danny had found his brother’s stash of cash, only to discover that it was well shy of what Reyes was demanding. And the clock’s ticking. Danny was loath to reach out to Ko, of all people, for a loan (only to get shot down). His heart sank further when Chin Ho made an ill-advised bargain with Malia’s brother to secure more cash. Through it all, Caan made sure we felt how on-edge Danny was. But that was nothing compared to when Reyes fulfilled his end of the deal… by producing a barrel with dead Matt inside. Beside himself, Danny, with McGarrett’s help, overpowered Reyes’ henchmen, then aimed a pistol at the cretin’s cranium — and pulled the trigger. Because of the pained, angry look in Caan’s eyes, we understood Danny’s actions, as dark as they were. [source]
Hawaii Five-0 season 5 premieres tonight so I thought I’d post the episode summaries for the next few episodes as follow:
5.01 “A’ohe kahi e pe’e ai” – The island of O’ahu goes on lockdown when Five-0 hunts a terrorist who starts using weaponized drones on civilians. Meanwhile, McGarrett and Danno must go for a mandated review with a psychologist, resulting in a session which looks a lot like couples therapy, on the fifth season premiere of HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Sept. 26, 2014 (9:00-10:00, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network.
(*A’ohe kahi e pe’e ai is Hawaiian for “Nowhere to Hide”)
5.02 “Ka Makuakāne” – Five-0 investigates when the young daughter of a Navy Seal currently on a top-secret mission is kidnapped. Meanwhile, with his brother’s life on the line, Danny must locate the $18.5 million he owes his captors, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Oct. 3 (9:00-10:00, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

• There’s also this big sort of arc with Danny at the beginning of the season with a character that sort of comes to him and has a relationship with Danny’s brother, and that plays over the first four episodes. So that’s a pretty big villain right from Episode 1 that’s going to play a big impact on Danny’s life.
• There’s this moment in the first episode between Mindy and Danny, Scott’s character, and you can see that there’s something. We wrote something but we didn’t plan on it being so fun and sort of subtle but there’s something there you can tell and you’re hoping that maybe those two get to spend some time together, scenes together. So who knows? That’s always a possibility. (source)
