  • Five-0 investigates the murder of a local businessman. Elsewhere McGarrett hires a private investigator to follow his mother.

    There is a lot to like about "Kekoa". The episode has a great opening sequence. I certainly had no idea where it would lead which added to its enjoyment. The episode's main storyline is terrific as well. Summer Glau is in my opinion one of the most underrated actresses in television today. I have been a fan of hers ever since I saw her her in an episode of "Cold Case" titled "Love Conquers Al". She is consistently good in everything she appears in. However the reason why I have given this episode only an average rating is because I could not stand the secondary story in which McGarrett hires the private investigator. It screamed contrivance. Could it have been more obvious that Doris McGarrett would figure the whole thing out? The scene where Steve tells Danny that there is absolutely no way his mother would figure things out just made the storyline all the more unnecessary. Though I will admit I thought it was clever to have them hook up at the end. "Kekoa" is a very good episode. I recommend it. Well, I recommend half of it.
