Hawaii Five-0 Season 4 Review “Pe’epe’e Kanaka” – Keep Your Enemies Closer

In this episode of Hawaii Five-0, called “Pe’epe’e Kanaka” (Hawaiian for “Those Among Us”), the team finds a murder victim connected to a terrorist plot and discovers that the enemy is closer than they thought.

An episode about terrorists and bombs and the threat of explosions isn’t all that new on this show. It was rough to watch it so close after the anniversary of the terrible tragedy at last year’s Boston marathon, but even that didn’t compare to the truth that it portrayed. The real truth that the people who want to harm us are sometimes those that are closer to us than anyone else.

This was one of the best episodes of the season. The plot and setup was really believable and sort of frightening, the action scenes were really intense, too.

One odd thing. I totally love the song "Say It, Just Say It" by The Mowgli's, but it seemed kind of odd to use it during the scene when Uday Jahani is watching his son play lacrosse and Grover and a swarm of agents arrive and arrest him. Again that's one of my favorite songs, but it's so triumphant and joyous sounding, I'm not sure it fit here- would've been better at the end credits.
