So, how well did Hawaii Five-0 tackle a Christmas episode? In my opinion - very successfully. Not only did the show give us the best gift that it possibly could with the return of James Marsters, ‘Hana ‘a’a Makehewa’ was amongst the most exciting and tense installments of the series so far too.
The fact that Marsters would be reprising his role as Victor Hesse (the murderer of Steve’s father) was something that was well-publicized and probably didn’t come as a surprise to any fans ofHawaii Five-0. However, the return of this character still worked within the context of the show as Hesse provided a level of threat a notch higher than what we get in most regular episodes.(Especially as this one began by showing us Chin-Ho in some pretty serious danger with a bomb strapped to his neck.) Anybody who’s questioning the realism of the situation regarding Hesse should remember that, as a general rule for a lot of television, if you don’t actually SEE the lifeless corpse of a major character - there’s room for them to return. This was certainly the case last night, as James Marsters' character had survived being shot twice in the chest.
