10.15 Review


“He waha kou o ka he‘e” – When Grover’s niece, Siobhan (Nia Holloway), goes missing from the police academy and it’s discovered her boyfriend is an undercover member of the Yakuza, Adam may be her only hope of rescue, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Feb. 7 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The episode was directed by series star Ian Anthony Dale and co-written by series star Chi McBride.

CBS translated He waha kou o ka he‘e to Yours is the mouth of an octopus

Please don’t expect a full review. There is quite a lot I wish to say about this episode, but I simply don’t have the time for it.

So, let’s at least have a mini-review.

I can can tell you right up front that this episode was not for me. Sorry, but it was a huge disappointment. Well, that is not really true, for being disappointed one has to expect a lot. Which I didn’t. The episode simply didn’t click with me in any way.

But let’s start with the good stuff.

I liked Lou’s niece. It was nice to see that they followed up on her becoming a member of HPD.


I also liked Grover. As always another good performance by Chi McBride.


Honestly? This is pretty much all that falls into the good category.

So, let’s move on to the… well, the not so good stuff? Let’s start with Tani. I am so tired of this person. She never finished the Academy, but now she teaches at it? You’ve got to be kidding me! That was just a cheap way to get her to witness the flirting between Siobhan and her “boyfriend”. In my eyes, a pretty lame way. Sorry, Chi (or who wrote this part), but you could have done better.

I must confess, the first 15 minutes were beyond boring for me.

OK, next. Adam. Please just finish this storyline. It’s stupid and ridiculous. After all he has done, after betraying Steve and Five-0 like he did, he is now just back and all is fine? And D can’t even understand why someone would be suspicious of him? I simply rolled my eyes. Actually, I did that a lot during this episode.


I would love Adam if he really went back to the dark side, where he came from. But him being back with Five-0 is just outrageous. And frankly, I have no interest in the outcome whatsoever.

And one more plea from me, please stop with the kidnapping stuff. That is so tiring.

Looking back at the episode, even now, a couple of days later, I really can’t come up with any scenes that I would want to watch again. For me, this was a total waste of time. And this time, not even Steve could save the episode.

What I do hope for is to see the niece again. She was really good.


There you have it. Now go and tell me how I missed all the awesome stuff.

  1. I can’t tell you about really awesome stuff in this episode, Sam.
    I was really bored at the beginning, but it got a little bit more interesting. I am impressed by the actress that played Siobhan! She is amazing and I would love to see more of her either.
    The McGrover scenes were great as usual, I just love to see these two amazing actors sharing screentime. Always worth it. And Chi’s performance was powerful.
    What else? Hm, the Adam story? Please, good grief, I hope we’ll see Steve punching his lights out. Adam is so pathetic, he had others save his ass so many times, but did he learn anything? Nope.
    Steve is smart, he knows he can’t trust Adam. But talking to him? Why on earth should he do that? To be lied at again? Please don’t tell me ever again that cockatoo combover is a brilliant detective. He isn’t.
    And let me ask you one thing: What’s your behavior when you’re living at a friend’s house for weeks, you even get your food made from said friend? Do you whine, bitch, complain and insult?
    Really? How old are you?
    CC Dannoying sounded, looked and behaved like a petulant little child. I wanted to yell at him ‘move your behind off the counter, take a shower and clean your room’. Edward has better manners than this guy.
    Let’s pic(k) Steve is in the making, Sam; enjoy the lighting (that was done well!) and the Alexpressions.

    1. To me the Danny-Steve interactions were strained, forcibly done and not natural or funny. It made me feel very uncomfortable. I don’t think Danny’s whining and complaining is funny and when he sits on Steve’s kitchen counter it really irks me.
      He complained the whole time Steve was searching Adam’s apartment and didn’t help. Steve had credible instinct to not trust Adam and Danny fights him on it? Isn’t Danny Steve’s partner, where is the trust? Why does he whine and complain about everything Steve does when Steve knows what he’s doing and Steve is the boss. I definitely did not feel the “McDanno” vibes everyone’s talking about, just my interpretation.

      1. You hit the nail on the head. Couldn’t agree more.
        And another thing that irked me: since when does D exercise? If I remember right it was Steve who had to train with Grace for her sports medal, because D doesn’t do sports. But maybe he became wiser with age… bahaha… nope…

    2. Cockatoo Combover!🤣😂🤣😂🤣

      I found the ep boring. Not enuf McG. Too much Dannoying. Too much Adam. Too much Dannoying. Too much Yakuza dudes who don’t act very well. Too much Dannoying. Too much Tani. Too much Dannoying. Not enuf McG.

  2. Steve there has been very less of. As really enough with Adam. Be good or bad
    BTW Steve is smart enough as he may be onto Adam. Do not fool this Navy SEAL.
    As only saving grace was Chi McBride. Great actor as really hate that they keep on kidnapping people. Enough with that.

  3. I liked this episode … well, a 3 out of 4 like. That is two in a row, maybe I am getting soft in the head, LOL.

    The show had enough suspense to keep me entertained. But there were some questions!

    The business at the end, the bacon-and-eggs-gument, was baloney (some kind of pun here, maybe).

    A big flap in my mind: in the last show, Dannoying’s GF who died in the car crash was named “Leslie” based on her name in the CBS press release and mention four times in the subtitles. But in this show she was suddenly “Joanna.” Sounds like bad continuity to me.

    When I brought this up with certain people, they pooh-poohed my inquisitive inquiry, but someone has raised this issue with the powers-that-be. Hopefully there will be an answer to this quandary.

    My review, which may provide some entertainment!

    1. Keep on em, Mike! These writers are just phoning da sh** in.

      Tho I have now come up with an idea for Alex…he likes to raise money for sick kids needing organ transplants, right? I think Show should hold an auction, fans get to bid, and the highest bidder gets to appear in the next kidnap episode, as the kidnap victim. They’ll just be seen getting kidnapped and spend the bulk of the ep tied up and gagged, cos not an actor, but maybe it would make the monthly kidnapping ep a little more interesting…and the winner gets to meet the cast as well as be IN the cast.😉

  4. I agree with all these posts. Everyone and their cousins have been kidnapped. Enough already.

    Steve knows Adam hasnt come clean. I hope he is giving him enough rope to hang himself, although I know they will once again be one happy family.

    Totally agree on the Tani stuff. Teaching weapons training! Really?

    I totally miss Junior.

    I do like Siobhan and hope she comes back.

    As for D, it is time for him to go home. New Jersey home would be nice, but home to his house. And what happened to Charlie? Not that I want to see him, but doesnt he have partial custody? The sweaty body sitting on the kitchen counter totally irks me. Steve is nice enough to cook for him and he is late? Rude. But that was established long ago. I am glad Eddie enjoyed the eggs.

    My favorite scene… that I COULD watch over and over… Steve closing the blue room door. 😊

          1. Well, the director of the movie he was filming while away, just won an Oscar for the screenplay of his excellent movie Jojo Rabbit and got a few other nominations as well.


          2. Seems I need to revise my comment – it looks like Beulah was filming on more than one other project. Great for his career. Wonder if he will stay on for another season of H50 with all the opportunities he is getting?


  5. Love all the comments left here. Everyone nailed all my complaints and few likes. So D is now reduced to just sit and bitch. Steve needs to evict him and definitely not feed the mooch. And I totally approve of cockatoo combover! Well said.
