'Hawaii Five-0' fan recap: Chicago Five-0

Season 6 | Episodes 13 | “Umia Ka Hanu” | Aired Jan 22, 2016

I’ve got my bread and milk, and I’m waiting to be snowed into my apartment this weekend, and meanwhile, on Hawaii Five-0, the core four are on a team surf trip. I’m definitely all for more scenes of the team in their swim suits, so I’m not complaining.

The surf trip ends and the team chats and gets dressed (boo), and I am completely distracted watching Danny comb his hair—which he does like an damn artist.

But I haven’t missed much because they’re just talking about how much traffic there is. It’s going to take them forever to get back to HQ, and the team bickers about the quickest route, much like that one episode of How I Met Your Mother.

So they put it to a bet: Steve and Danny are taking the scenic route, and Chin and Kono are taking the back roads. Steve continues his mildly crazy/OOC streak from the last several episodes and forces to Danny to pee in a bottle rather than pulling over and falling behind. There are free wings on the line, after all.

Then, in my favorite scene of the whole episode, we get serious cousin time, which is one of THE BEST things. Kono tells Chin surfing with the guys was just what she needed. It’s been a rough couple months. And we also get some good-natured ribbing about Chibby, which everyone knows about. MORE GIGGLY COUSINS PLEASE.

Hawaii Five-0, "Umia Ka Hanu"

But then Chin gets them lost. They see a parked car and go looking for directions when they find a guy digging a person-sized hole—and he’s got a friend with a gun. This is what they get for trying to take a shortcut.

After forcing them to dig, Captor No. 1 takes Chin to help him carry a dead body from the trunk, and a badge drops out. The dead guy is a cop, and then Captor No. 1 spots the police lights in Chin’s car. Things are going from bad to worse.

Chin and Kono finish digging their very square but very shallow hole—the perfect size for three cops—and are about to get shot by their captors when Steve and Danny come to their rescue. (They went looking when Chin and Kono when they never arrived.) Our core four are safe and sound.

Hawaii Five-0, "Umia Ka Hanu"

But where’s the fifth member of Five-0? Lou is in Chicago losing his damn mind. Remember last season when Lou’s best friend got away with murdering his wife and Lou vowed to make him pay for it? Well that promise is coming to fruition tonight.

Lou breaks into Clay’s house in Chicago, knocks his ex-partner out, and ties him to a chair. It’s an odd use of vacation days, but Lou is a man on a mission.

He demands that Clay confess to killing his wife, and Clay refuses. (And honestly, the confession would have been dismissed anyway. Bad plan, Lou.) So it’s on to plan B: Lou grabs a sledge hammer from the garage. This isn’t Misery, Lou!

Hawaii Five-0, "Umia Ka Hanu"

But the hammer isn’t for Clay; it’s for the walls. Lou doesn’t care what Clay goes away for, as long as he ends up in prison. And Lou remembered a suspicious stash house raid five years ago where a bag of money went missing—and Clay was the primary officer.

During some DIY work, Clay once joked to Lou about putting his poker winnings in a “Break Dry Wall in Case of Emergency” fund, so Lou is convinced the stolen money is hidden somewhere in the walls of the house. So Lou starts swinging.

Unfortunately, Clay’s mistress-turned-girlfriend shows up. Lou has to take her hostage, too. Things are escalating quickly, but Lou tells Leann about his awesome life; would he really risk it all if he wasn’t 100 percent certain Clay was guilty?

Despite his convincing speech, Lou does have doubts. He hasn’t found the money and he’s running out of walls. Could he be wrong? But then Lou sees a photo on the wall and it reminds him of the one place he never looked—Clay’s old banged up car in the garage. Why is it in the garage, when his brand new car is sitting outside in the middle of a Chicago winter?

Lou tears into the side of the car, and there’s the missing money—finally. The money is real, which means Lou is only moderately crazy.

Hawaii Five-0, "Umia Ka Hanu"

Clay offers Lou the money to just walk away, but no thanks, vindication tastes too good. Lou calls in an old friend at the Chicago PD and asks him to send Internal Affairs and some cops over. Clay isn’t getting away with this one.

While I am always impressed with Chi McBride’s dramatic acting and glad that Lou was right about Clay, is this case really going to hold up in court? Regardless of the fact that he found the money, Lou still broke into Clay’s house, assaulted him, held two people hostage, and destroyed their home. Five-0’s immunity doesn’t extend to Illinois, Lou.

What did you think of Lou’s extreme tactics? Did you kind of want Kono and Chin to save themselves? And shouldn’t we all fight for more giggly cousin scenes? It’s been too long.

Hawaii Five-0 airs Fridays at 9/8C on CBS.
