As “Hawaii Five-0” inches near the end of its fall season, it is going to be airing an episode that could make more than a few people out there a little emotional. This is an installment that will bring to mind the memory of Pearl Harbor Day, and feature actual World War II veterans during a scene filmed at the Historic Battleship Missouri Memorial and Outside the USS Arizona Memorial.
This episode that we are talking about here is entitled “Ho’ onani Makuakane,” which is is Hawaiian for “Honor Thy Father.” It is the tenth of the season, and one that almost requires that you bring some tissues along for the affair.
Take a look at the full synopsis below for a few details:
“The attempted murder of a Pearl Harbor veteran leads Five-0 to use decades old evidence to investigate a deadly crime committed within the internment camps on Oahu during World War II.”
Is it possible that there are going to be some more surprises in here? Possibly, but this will be more about the emotion of the story. Pearl Harbor is a difficult episode to tackle no matter the time, and the writers are probably being extra sensitive in order to ensure that it honors the memory of the day rather than doing anything to bring up uncomfortable or painful times of the past. Our suggestion would be to find something pretty funny to catch after this is over, that way you can start to pull yourself out of this and go back to enjoying the rest of your day happy.
“Hawaii Five-0” has enjoyed a solid fourth season so far; while it has not necessarily been a ratings warrior by any means, its numbers have been consistent throughout.
