'Hawaii Five-0' fan recap: [SPOILER]'s betrayal!

Season 6 | Episodes 15 | “Ke Koa Lokomaika’i” | Aired Feb 19, 2016

The latest installment of Hawaii Five-0 had A LOT going on. We had a solid case of the week, an appearance by our big bad, a Williams family subplot, guest stars, a great fight scene, and hints at where the end of the season is going to go.

In this week’s case, an autistic man, Neil, brought a DOA victim into the hospital, but he won’t talk to anyone. When Steve arrives, he gets Neil to open up. (This is the Steven J. McGarrett I’ve been missing for most of this season.) The dead guy is Mark Walker, a friend of Neil’s from his job at a parking garage.

Neil is distracted by his bloody uniform, so Steve takes him back to his assisted-living facility to change his clothes. Neil would go to Mark’s house each morning before work, and that’s where Neil found his body, so that’s where Steve and Neil head next.

The team searches Mark’s house, but there’s no evidence of a robbery. But Steve does find one-way tickets for Mark and Neil to L.A., and their flight was supposed to leave that morning. They were running from something.

Lou interviews Mark’s ex-wife, who says Mark set up a trust for their daughter a week ago. The trust was worth $100,000. The money has something to do with why he was killed.

Neil is insistent that he has to get to work and close off part of the parking garage. He anxiously waits for someone to arrive, but he won’t tell Steve who. Mark told him not to talk about it.

So Steve goes investigating. He notices a bank across the street and finds a tunnel hidden behind a dumpster. The tunnel leads through feet of steel and concrete and right into the bank vault. Mark had been letting a crew in to work on it every night for a week. But Mark and Neil became loose ends. That explains where the money came from and why Mark was killed.

It doesn’t explain what the tunneling crew was looking for, though. They didn’t take anything out of the vault. They shut down the surveillance equipment at the bank, but nothing was missing from the offices either, and the customer records look undisturbed.

Using a cigarette butt from the parking garage, Five-0 tracks down one of the crew members. But when they get to his house, they find the whole crew slaughtered. When they ID the other men, they discover one of them is the brother of the bank manager, Ella.

Five-0 goes to question her again. She explains that her boss, Mr. Fuller, was laundering money. The crew stole records out of his office safe and transferred $94 million of illegal funds into an offshore account. Fuller couldn’t report it. But now he’s in the wind. Whoever that money belonged to killed the crew, and he’s looking for Fuller too.

Then our favorite ex-art dealer, Gerard Hirsch, shows up. He’s gotten into the crime-scene cleanup game, and he found some evidence at the scene. Hirsch realizes the closed laptop on the desk was actually open when the murders were committed. They process the inside for prints and get a hit: everyone’s favorite big bad, Gabriel Waincroft.

Five-0 finally tracks down Fuller, and they force him to call Gabriel and tell him Ella has his money. They can use her as bait to finally catch Gabriel (hopefully, maybe). But Gabriel tracks the call and knows he’s being set up. Instead of going after Ella, he and his men go after Five-0.

Steve and Lou (with a little help from sniper Kono) take out most of Gabe’s crew, leaving Chin to duke it out with his ex-brother-in-law mano y mano. Their fight is brutal, but Chin finally gets the upper hand and throws Gabe OUT THE DAMN WINDOW, where he lands on a car below.

But does the team confirm that Gabriel is dead? NO. Because APPARENTLY they have never watched a movie (or the pilot episode of Hawaii Five-0) in their lives. By the time they get downstairs, Gabriel is gone—again.

Elsewhere on the island, Danny was pretending to be married to his mom. Let me explain. Clara (Melanie Griffith) makes her son attend a day-long meeting about Hawaii timeshares so she can win tickets to a cruise. After 36 hours of labor, it’s the least he can do.

But the realtor goes into far too many details about their romantic life in his timeshare pitch, and Danny pulls the plug on the sham. No son wants to imagine the Hawaii breeze on his mother’s naked skin.

Back at home, Clara is giving Danny the cold shoulder—but then someone from the FBI swings by to talk to her about Matt.

In 2011, the FBI asked Clara if she’d been in contact with her fugitive son, and she said no. But Matt had opened a $50,000 bank account in her name; it had been untouched until recently, when Clara used the money to buy her ticket to Hawaii. How did she know about the account if she hadn’t been in contact?

Clara says the bank called her after Matt’s death, but later she apologizes to Danny for lying. She had spoken to Matt, but she couldn’t tell him; she didn’t want Danny to be forced to turn his brother in.

Clara leaves, but the FBI is still questioning Danny about his brother, even though the case should have been closed ages ago. The agent has a hard time believing that with all of Danny’s Five-0 resources, he didn’t help his brother out.

The agent has shown his hand. This isn’t about Matt at all—it’s about Five-0. On the other side of the interrogation-room mirror, Agent Robert Coughlin (Ingo Rademacher) says the task force has crossed the line before and they will again, and he tells Abby (!) she has to be there when it happens.

So Abby is investing the team. And many of you are getting exactly what you’ve always wanted: Five-0 has to face consequences for their actions. I’m on the fence. I’m intrigued to see how it will play out for the rest of the season, but I don’t think the team should be held responsible for things authorized by the governor. Also, poor Chin.

What did you think of Abby’s betrayal?

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