'Hawaii Five-0' recap: Ocean's Five-0

Season 5 | Episode 11 | “Ua’aihue” | Aired Jan 9, 2015

Tonight’s episode of Hawaii Five-0 was full of art heists and guest stars! We open on a happy, vacationing family arriving at their hotel. Mom and the kids head down to the pool while dad unpacks. But before he gets a chance, someone knocks on the door, shoots dad, and steals his suitcase.

Our victim, Bryan Wallace, is rushed to the hospital. The team discovers that only his carry-on was stolen, but airport scans showed nothing suspicious in his bag. Officer Pua helps Kono comb security footage. They spot the bag, but the shooter avoids showing his face to any cameras. Luckily they spot a kid taking photos in the background.

Kono tracks the kid down by the pool, and she trades a selfie for a photo of their shooter, Lukas Janssen (Henri Lubatti), known for his high-end robberies. And he was also on the same connecting flight as the Wallaces. TSA had been tipped off that Janssen would be smuggling stolen artwork into Hawaii, but nothing was found in his bag. The team realizes that he slipped his stolen art into Bryan’s bag on the plane and then shot him at the hotel to get it back.

Nicole Booth (Rebecca Mader) on Hawaii Five-0Steve and Grover go to the airport to meet their TSA tipster, Nicole Booth (Rebecca Mader). She works for an insurance firm, and she is trying to recover Vase with Irises by Van Gogh. Back at HQ, she explains that the hardest part about art theft is selling the painting—but luckily, the wealthiest collectors are in Hawaii this week for an auction. If they can find the middleman fencing the art, they can find Janssen.

Nicole says their best bet is Gerard Hirsch (Willie Garson), a respected art appraiser who moonlights as a black-market art dealer. He also likes the ladies, so Kono, our resident babe, is going undercover.

The team dresses up and heads to the auction. Kono immediately chats up Hirsch pretending to be a buyer, while Chin poses as her intense, money-hungry boss. She asks Hirsch to appraise a painting for her, and he tells her it’s a forgery. Kono hysterically tells him that she’ll be fired for her mistake. So Hirsch, being the crooked appraiser that he is, offers to write her a fraudulent appraisal.

Unfortunately for Hirsch, Chin is ready to bust him—unless he gets them some information. Hirsch tells the team that Tom Emery, a huge stolen-art buyer, is having a party today that is known for its shady art deals.

But before they can head to the party, Jerry calls Steve in a panic. Earlier, when Jerry had almost blown Kono’s cover at the auction, he caught Nicole in a lie. She’s actually a bounty hunter tracking down stolen art for the rewards. But Steve still needs Nicole’s help, so he makes her a deal—they get Janssen and she gets the painting.

Deal made, Kono and Chin (looking good in some spy glasses) go into the party with Hirsch while the rest of the team waits in Jerry’s van. Inside, Chin tells Emery he’s looking to buy some art (“if you know what I mean”). Emery takes Chin, Kono, and Hirsch into a secret room to show off all his stolen art. While they’re scoping the place, Janssen shows up.

Steve and Lou are about to make their move when they lose all communication. Someone is using a signal jammer. Then the house alarm goes off. Security doors slam down over all of the entrances.

In the secret room, Janssen and his men burst in with guns and masks and start shooting. All of the guests are herded in while the henchmen start rolling up the art. But Janssen is suspicious. The police arrived too soon. They must have been tipped off.

Meanwhile, Nicole uses blueprints to figure out the thieves’ escape route: a tunnel coming out of Emery’s panic room. But SWAT can’t breach the house without knowing the hostage situation. Jerry gets the comms up and running again so Steve can check on the hostages and count the gunmen.

One of the robbers notices a radio signal is getting through. Janssen realizes there’s a cop in the room. They track the signal to Chin and Kono and smash their comms and the glasses.

Steve isn’t willing to risk his team’s safety, so he and Lou wait for the gunmen with SWAT at the end of the tunnel. But Steve thinks Janssen may be a step ahead of them. Jerry goes over the footage, and notices the robbers are all wearing dress shoes. They’d posed as party guests.

Steve McGarrett, Hawaii Five-0Janssen’s men release a gas bomb and the hostages, and they run out the front door with everyone else in the chaos. But Steve spots them (due probably to their art tubes and brisk walk in the opposite direction). Our required shootout occurs, and Janssen drives away in an ambulance. But Jerry, doing something right for once, crashes the surveillance truck into the ambo and stops him.

Later, Steve drops Nicole off at the airport, and as her plane takes off, he gets a call from Chin. All of the stolen paintings were fakes. Emery hung decoy paintings and stored the real ones in a vault that Nicole conveniently forgot to mention.

Steve finds the Van Gogh and a note in the vault. Nicole took all the paintings for their rewards, but she left the Van Gogh for someone who deserves the money—the Wallace family, including Bryan, who pulled through.

Kamekona got his own subplot this week! Flippa entered the food truck into Shrimpapalooza, but they’re up against celebrity chef Choy. Luckily, Steve arranges for Kamekona to train with another celebrity chef, Morimoto, whom Steve is conveniently friends with.

Morimoto tells Kamekona he needs to cook from the heart. Kamekona reminisces about learning to cook with a hot plate and a car battery in prison, and Morimoto tells him to channel that spirit (but not the technique).

At Shrimpapalooza, Kamekona takes home the prize—but Morimoto confesses to Steve that Choy is his nemesis, so he sabotaged his food.
