The Ho’apono Review: Keep my Soul (it was yours to have long ago)

“I should have been straight with you from the start. Trust, it… well, it’s a mighty big word.”
~Governor Denning, Hawaii Five-0, Season 3, episode 14, “Hana I WaΚ»Ia” (Scandal)

The moral of this picture is: don't trust atplenkov.

The moral of this picture is: don’t trust atplenkov.

When we talk about trust we talk about giving it. Giving our trust to others assumes that we have control over who we trust and when and why. Thankfully, in most life situations, we do have that control. But sometimes we have no choice in the matter. This is a story about one of those times.

He’s not here for your entertainment.

This episode is a hostage crisis. A hostage is taken held and put in a place where their choices are extremely limited. In regards to the emotions of the Five-0s, “Ho’apono” (or, “Accept”) puts Danny in this difficult position. McG is willingly walking (swimming) into danger and yet Danny is the one who is trapped. Danny can’t have McG’s back, or know that at least someone else does. This is kind of a first for the new partnership and to say Danny is unhappy about it is something of an understatement.

This episode shows Danny dealing with a difficult situation and we don’t know how we will react. McG is cast in the role of noble hero – at every turn doing what we expect he would do – what we ourselves would hope we would do – in the same situation. This is not a criticism in fact this is the highest praise (not leaving a brother-in-arms behind, etc.). But this dynamic means that while this episode is viewed from McG’s point of view, and we learn a great deal of facts about Steven J. McGarrett, we learn more about Danny’s character.

Hey, hey the gang's all here!

Hey, hey the gang’s all here!

So what do we learn about Danny? First off, that like many cops, Danny employs heuristics when he explains to McG that what will most likely occur when he investigates Noreen’s murder is that he will discover that Graham is in fact guilty. Heuristics are mental tools that we all use every day to solve problems and decide how to act in given situations, based on what we think is most likely to occur because of what has happened in the past. Most times when a married woman is found murdered, her husband is guilty. At their best, heuristics help police officers focus in on who was most likely to commit a given crime – at their worst, they’re the thought processes behind racial profiling and “Stop and Frisk” laws.

This is basically what Danny is saying to McG when McG says “I’ve done this sort of thing before,” and Danny says, “you’ve snuck on to a floating museum to rescue a bunch of tourists who are being held captive by a man who is accused of killing his wife?” Because obviously not. Whereas Danny Williams has solved nearly 90 homicides; he knows the husband killed the wife. And to Danny’s credit, he’s right about this in the end (he just doesn’t know who the husband really is).

Laura Hills, Governor’s Public Safety Officer

We love it when doctors use heuristics to help us — you go to an emergency room complaining of pain in your lower right abdomen, you’ll get rushed into surgery to get your appendix taken out with minimal time wasted on unnecessary testing. We hate it when our doctors use heuristics and what works for most people isn’t working for us, resulting in a lot of time spent on useless medications, expensive procedures and in additional discomfort. Heuristics help us work smarter but not necessarily harder. McG needed Danny to commit to working harder to solve this case.

“Ho’apono” is a fun, action packed episode that blends humor with a serious story. Select facts about mental illness and PTSD educate the audience about a critical problem with our returning military veterans, alongside a few true belly-laugh moments.

The scenes with Rookie Kono treating the young girl Lily to some shave ice and color-crayon therapy is very sweet, showing Kono’s silly humor and ability to connect with victims.

Chin and Danny do the majority of the investigative leg-work and expository speech, but it’s interspersed with humor and McG’s more action-oriented scenes on board the Missouri.

McG does his Master Chief White impersonation.

And while on board the Missouri, the conversations between the second Steve McGarrett (aka, The Backup) and Boatswain’s Mate 1st Class, Ed McKay, US Navy, Retired, were instant H50 classics, delivering humor, pride, and patriotic nostalgia in a neat mix. The story-telling of this episode is really well done.

And “Ho’apono” is an important episode, too, introducing us to two new characters. First, Laura Hills.

This first time we met Laura Hills, I clearly remember thinking “aw, well I guess the Governor can’t realistically be in every episode.” And while Laura wasn’t either, she was a solid supporting character and familiar face throughout Season 1. Laura introduces herself to McG and Danny as the Governor’s public safety liaison and in her first episode shows herself to be both capable of following McG’s directives and also making her own informed decisions.

One of these days, I hope a talented author will rewrite Hawaii Five-0 Season 1 from the point of view of Laura Hills. I’ll bet it’ll be a fascinating and thrilling read (with a somewhat sudden end).

The second recurring character we meet in this episode is Joe White.

All the cool kids like grape.

All the cool kids like grape.

Now it’s impossible to say for sure that the writers had Joe White, the Season 2 Joe White we know, in mind when they wrote this scene, so I’m going to fabricate the following timeline and invite your thoughts: Joe White joins the Navy as a young man, enlists during Vietnam. He spends most of his career in the enlisted ranks, eventually becoming a SEAL and attaining the rank of Master Chief, training other SEAL candidates. Sometime after Steve McGarrett, the son of his old friend John, has passed BUD/s, Joe applies for officer, and from that point his career advances rather rapidly, eventually gaining the rank of Lieutenant.

So that’s kind of a stretch, but this isn’t the kind of coincidence Show has “just happen.” This is the kind of coincidence Show makes happen. In 2.1 it’s established that Joe was one of McG’s SEAL instructors. How many COs named “White” could he possibly have had?

So this bring us to….. My Favorite Scene of the Episode! Which I have titled:

McG & Danny’s Second Discussion of the Case
At the Point When Things are Really Bad!

Trips right off the tongue, doesn’t it?

I'm a detective!

I’m a detective!

So McG has been barricaded in the head (aka locked in the bathroom) by Graham, who has moved his hostages out of the galley and into the wheelhouse. McG gives Danny a call and they get each other caught up on the latest developments of the case. Which are: The Five-0 team has found nothing to prove Graham’s innocence and McG’s attempt to rescue the hostages, either by peaceful means or by force, has failed.

Once McG had seen and talked to Graham his instinct told him the man was innocent of his wife’s murder. However, he had to balance his feeling that Graham was innocent with the fact that his fellow SEAL was currently holding a gun in the faces of innocent people and even though he held multiple hostages, he refused to release a sick woman from his custody. Graham was not completely innocent and the situation needed to be dealt with.

Yeah, we've all been there.

Yeah, yeah, yeah we’ve all been there.

So Plan A did not… go according to plan. Plan B time, right? So Danny says he’s going to call in SWAT. McG says “no.” And Danny puts the phone down. Really, it’s the most amazing moment in this new partnership.

Hanging it up.

Hanging it up on trust.

So Danny could have called in SWAT right then and there. Sure, McG would have been mad, but neither he nor Danny knew Boats would very soon let McG out of the toilets and what were they supposed to do in the meantime?

Danny put the phone down; that was a choice he made. He didn’t like it, but he did it anyway. This isn’t a simple question of obedience or following orders because I don’t believe Danny operates that way. This was about trusting Steve, and taking a chance on that trust, full stop.

What we learn about Danny in this episode is that he doesn’t get angry or petty when he discovers he’s wrong. When presented with the evidence showing his heuristics are incorrect, he refocuses on the facts of the case and maintains situational awareness – even if Graham didn’t kill Noreen, the SEAL is an emotionally unstable and armed hostage taker. McG still needs to be careful.

Thank you for reading, here are some eyelashes.

Thank you for reading, here are some eyelashes.

Now trust has become a big theme in the show since this point, bigger, than I think we could have imagined back here in the Autumn of 2010 when this episode first aired. Since the moment when Danny hangs up the phone we’ve had a whole host of characters (including but not limited to: Chin, Governor Jameson, Jenna, Kono, Joe and Doris) engage Steve directly concerning their trust in his judgement, his competence, his capacity for dealing with difficult emotions or even the basic facts of the past.

When Danny hangs up the phone the world changes. What I like about their exchange is that it works because Steve is still calm and rational though someone in his position (trapped in the toilets) should be frustrated and upset. Not Steve. He projects an aura of competence and gentle authority. He asks “why” and looks for the answers, makes Danny look for the answers. To ask someone to “dig deeper” is never irrational or bad. Asking why brings clarity, asking why makes things clear. Asking why leads you to the root cause of all things. Sound pretty zen? Fair enough — Zen McG is wise, y’all!

The way you blowin up my phone won’t make me think no faster
Put my tie on faster
Solve this crime no faster

Contrasted with the violence which kicks off this episode, it ends relatively bloodlessly. Sure, Boats is shot, but it’s a flesh wound. The Russian banker/murderer surrenders without a fuss. The errant SEAL will get his much needed medical care. All this is the result of Steve’s intuition, made possible through the Team, working as his eyes and hands and feet. This is also trust, turning over to others the deeds you know need done but can’t do yourself, believing that they will be completed fully and truly.

Well, I’m not sure I convinced any of you that this episode was really a good character episode for Danny. We followed McG throughout the narrow halls of the Battleship Missouri and I’m not sure I did a good job telling just how heroic McG was, either, though I sure tried. McG’s heroism is revealed in his open trusting heart and willingness to throw himself between a sick man and automatic weapons fire. He trusted Danny to be fair and open minded and conduct the case as he would if Steve were there beside him. Both men achieved their objectives and the results were positive for all the innocents involved. But this is the way it always happens, and we’ve discussed it all before…

So my score for this episode based on Steph’s Super Hard/Super Secret Grading Criteria is a fantastic 3.3/5 making it my 4th favorite out of the first 7 episodes of Season one!

Thank you for reading. Stay tuned for next time, when I review “Mana’o” or “Belief,” an episode of television about the murder of Danny’s old HPD partner …but is actually all about Steve.

And after a quick read through I think this review did not include enough Chin Ho Kelly. So here we are.

Chin Ho Kelly: Not waiting for McG’s call since 2010.

So I started this post (according to WP) on June 22, 2012. Here’s hoping you don’t have to wait 7 months for the next installment! But while we’re waiting… Let’s Vote!

  1. Wow. Great writing, Steph. I will be back later to have my say!

    Posted by westy | January 28, 2013, 9:16 pm
  2. You will not believe how happy I was to get the e-mail about this post…..and I hope everybody will take part!
    I think for me the main thing is that you are brilliant with you analysis of things and the way of presenting it as well as the fact that I was not there with you all when I saw these episodes first to discuss!

    Even now after all these months I can still recall what I wrote you about this episode……
    If you watch this episode just on the surface…..it is all about Steve trying to show off.
    But when I looked deeper, Steve the exeptional leader came to light.
    The leader who “Accepted” that each of the members of the team will have to be trusted with the skills they have. Danny, Kono & Chin .And as you say to trust them to find the truth…….And they had to trust him to do what he was trained to do……
    As far as I can recall, this was the first time that we had, what I call “phone-bromance” of a phone-gument, by lack of better words to explain. And it was brilliantly done…..to keep with the tradition of building their relationship, by having to talk in a “confined” space (Well Danny had the option to put the phone down…but it would be difficult to jump out of a moving car – if that makes any sense at all)
    Think I will have to go back to my notes about it now, before I ramble on any longer…..

    (PS….I am glad about the new direction they are taking at present with the Gov. I just hope this new trust did not put a mark on his back to be killed off now – say maybe in the last episode of S3 :sad:)

    • *sigh* it was a relief to finally publish this & I don’t know where I would have been without our conversations! I still have an email from you that you sent back in August in my in-box… I read it over and over & guess I can retire it now finally! πŸ˜€

      This episode gets mixed reviews because everyone sees it so differently. I watched it again randomly last week and Mr JK was all, “I hate that episode” and as to why….? 1) he’s seen it like 4 times, ok, so that’s on me and 2) his solution would be sneak on board and shoot Graham in the face/leg/whatever because taking hostages & threatening them with a gun is just NOT OK. πŸ˜† From the hostages’ POV, McG stumbling in there, eventually revealing himself to be the rescue squad, and then getting locked in the bathroom… they were probably pretty annoyed!

      When I was brainstorming this final time about posting this, I kept the ep running in my head, at the very end, McG is walking up to the team – what did they say? Did they get together for beers afterwards? Did Kono and Chin tell Steve about Danny’s crazy driving on the tarmac? Was Steve impressed? Did Danny try to downplay it and apologize to Chin and Kono for almost getting them squished? They must have laughed about that A LOT. And the body shop where they took the Camaro afterwards — laughing all the way to the bank.

      But also — did Steve tell them about Ed? Did they ever meet up again to talk about Steve’s grandfather or their Navy careers? So much I wonder about.

      • Forgot to mention earlier….Great catch on the one that the husband was the killer in the end anyway. I actually never thought of it that way!
        And yes Steve was definitely not the usual type of resque guy like “Bruce Willis” would be in a situation like this. Well he did fix a guys head with glue and he did get the guy release…..and things turned out fine in the end….LOL
        And in the scenario of The Five-o’s like us for a day…. poor Ed would most probably have been shot πŸ˜€

  4. One day we’ll get the hang of short pithy titles. Not today, though, obvi πŸ˜‰

    I always love reading your take on the stories and this one’s no exception. I really hadn’t thought of this ep as being about Danny, but you are so right, it is. I’d never thought about the trust issue before but it makes so much sense. This was quite a leap of faith for Danny given that it was quite early on and McG had already done some batsh/t insane kind of stuff. And I loved your point about Danny’s lack of pettiness. Something that I’ve always liked about Danny is that even though he has a certain arrogance about his job (not unwarranted, he’s good and he knows it) he doesn’t really have an ego about it – he’s more interested in solving the puzzle than he is in being right from the outset. I bet he watches Elementary** ;-).

    The heuristics info was really interesting. Excellent screencap choices too (“put my tie on faster” is killing me!). Can’t wait for the next instalment (which is one of my favourite S1 eps! Yay!).

    ** but not Sherlock. He’s probably had enough of British accents these days #sadface

    Posted by Alicia | January 29, 2013, 9:46 am
    • I skipped class on short pithy title day. AND EVERY DAY FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE! πŸ˜† I know, they’re terrible but I can’t help myself….. I loooooove them. Although, they’re a pain in the butt to tweet so maybe I can work on that.

      And “put my tie on faster” was really more timely OH LAST SUMMER when I started writing this damn thing.

      And Elementary has a British Holmes!!!

      But yeah, Danny’s lack of ego. He almost has to be ego-free, because Steve’s not the character in this Show who’s going to say “ok, let’s do it your way not mine.” So their conflict has to be generated in other areas (like in season 1, when Danny cared about police procedure). It’s like Danny realized, I’m going to be this guy’s sidekick for all intents and purposes and IMMA BE THE BEST DAMN SIDEKICK EVER! And Danny’s partnership is so valuable because Steve is full of crazy/big/great/interesting ideas/plans and Danny makes them work — and it works this way practically every time! Their dynamic is a little more complicated than it appears at first glance.

  7. I really liked this episode, for so many reasons.
    First and foremost, the guest star, Adam Beach (fellow Canuck FTW!) Great actor, who was also in Combat Hospital with Michelle Borth.

    Love that they brought the Missouri into the story. Other than all the pretty, I also watch Show for Hawaii. They did a great job of presenting some history (and some fantastic dialogue) through BoatsEd. For the record, I hope McG did give him a call afterwards to go for a beer.

    I’ve always thought of this episode as more of a vehicle for McG’s character development, through his conversations with Ed, and the way he deals with Graham – mainly because he spends so much time without the rest of the team on the ship. After reading your post though, I totally see it from Danny’s perspective! The way he reacts to McG (even when he laughs at McG taking his shirt off) and the way they work together even while working different angles of the case, develops their relationship and mutual trust. I want to watch this ep again now, with a new perspective. Such a great ep!!

    Oh, and shirtless McG didn’t hurt either.

    Great post Steph. I love your episode reviews essays because they always make me think about Show in a way I hadn’t before.

    Posted by heymomo | January 29, 2013, 5:42 pm
    • Momo, your comment really sums up how I feel about this episode. It’s one of my favourites from season 1. I loved Adam Beach and was really impressed with Show and their exploration of PTSD. I watch Show for Hawaii too (OK, for the pretty as well) and particularly the historic and cultural aspects which I think are mostly done really well.

      It was an interesting episode to be placed within the first half of the first season – to explore the issue of trust between McG and Danny especially, as Alicia pointed out, when Danny had been experiencing plenty of McG “batsh/t insane kind of stuff” and things were still very new with the team and how they worked together. Steph, the heuristics explanation was really interesting and thanks for making me think about this episode again, particularly from Danny’s perspective. I’ve always enjoyed watching the relationship between McG and Danny develop and this is a really good example of the complexity of that relationship. It’s also a terrific example of how well Show can do character development alongside the ‘crime of the week’. Here, we have a story about Graham – and it was a good story too – but we also learnt so much about the team, especially McG and Danny, by the way they handled everything. The humour, the action, and the seriousness of PTSD and a hostage situation were all combined beautifully to make for a really well put together episode. Oh, and shirtless McG on top of all that. Bonus!

      Great post! Can’t wait to read your thoughts on ‘Belief’.

      Posted by Andrea_Briz | January 29, 2013, 7:31 pm
    • I always thought of this as an episode about Steve, too. Because in one sense it is totally all about Steve. It was only when I broke the ep down to write about it that it occured to me, well, we already know (from the Pilot) that Steve’s g-pa was at Pearl Harbor and that he’s proud of that family history. And him busting in somewhere like a Big Damn Hero, also no surprise. The SEAL stuff is awesome to see but also (in my mind) is filed under “stuff we already knew or assumed.” You make a GREAT point about seeing how Steve deals with Graham – I’d have to think pretty hard about if I would have expected him to make the attempt at calming small talk that he did. It’s part of the point I was trying to make in my comment response to Alicia (didn’t make it, failed attempt) that Steve’s not the brawn of this operation… in this episode, he’s the brains. He literally gets pushed around by Graham until the very last second when he knocks Graham over to avoid being shot.

  8. OK, I skimmed ahead to the poll & consequently will need to got back and read more carefully. However in my defense, I was distracted by images and dirty thoughts of locking McG in the bathroom. Holy smokes! He’s very very sweaty! {{{{SwoooooOOOOOoooooooning!}}}} This is why I voted “2 – I coulda gotten locked into a bathroom!” I really want to give BAMF sweaty sailor Steve a 10! I love this episode except for the part where he NEVER REMOVED HIS PANTS!!!!! FLR!

  9. Ok, screencapped *lord that took forever…..for reasons* and have rewatched. My thoughts:

    This has always been one of my favorite episodes, yet I have a love/hate relationship with it. My unpopular opinion, even rewatching now after reading your comments, I can’t make it Danny focused because even 3 yrs later I have to shut Danny down right away in order to appreciate the rest of the episode. From the word “GO”, Danny was convinced Graham did it…. Apparently in NJ, looks are never deceiving. It’s one thing to have an initial hunch but even at the 20 min mark, Danny was still convinced it was him. His comment about “Oh wait I AM a detective” is kinda funny but kinda falls flat considering he really hadn’t done much detectiving….he’d looked at some evidence but he looked at it with one mindset. IMO. What would have happened if he’s sent in the SWAT team early anyway? An innocent man would have probably died. 😦

    Now on the other hand, Steve was (almost) just as convinced that Graham was innocent, though he reluctantly a litte more open minded to other possibilites. He just wanted to give the guy, his brother at arms, a chance. (Which I think if roles were reversed, Danny would have done the same for a fellow detective). So really this episode to me was about them being in different places, believing different things but still working together for a common goal. And that’s one of the great things about the episode. They found compromise, trust and faith.

    I LOVE the history of this episode, the setting on the Missouri and mostly I loved the interaction between McG and his two Navy guys. BoatEd, who was wonderful as a history teacher of sorts, he knew when to concede the lead to McG as the “active” officer and in the end, when McG tells him he’s crazier than he thought, I couldn’t help but think that’s Steve in 40 years. πŸ™‚ Because you know Steve would have done all the same stuff, obey orders, but disobey SOME orders, put himself in harms way and try to be a hero. Yep,that’s our 70ish Steve. Then the relationship with Graham. What I got from Steve was respect. Not in what Graham was doing but in who he was. Steve knew very well that this wasn’t a man you could let down your guard with. He was just as strong, just as smart and just as BAMF as he was. Steve never let that leave his mind that Graham could kill him at any second…with or without the gun. No man got left behind. Steve made sure Graham was saved and BoatEd made sure McG was saved. *love*

    I did have to kind of chuckle though that they made such a big deal out of PTSD here. I guess when you’re tortured in North Korea, there is no PTSD attached to that. Once again (and I’m sorry I know I’m a broken record on this one…) it was SUCH a missed opportunity by show to delve into McG having at least SOME kind of PTSD. Man, just imagine what could have been… *sigh* Meh, I guess they’d used the PTSD angle up here…

    As far as Danny not having an ego, I can’t say i agree. When Laura Hills announced the Gov wanted McG to take over because of his SEAL experience Danny immediately chuffed up and said, “what am I here for entertainment??” I’m not saying he has an ego as in “i’m better than you”. I don’t think either Danny nor Steve has that type of ego. But they are two very self assured, very confident men…and reasonably so. It’s about them bringing their two worlds together and complimenting each other. This episode was a very good exercise for that.

    I think someone said this seemed on the surface like McG showing off. I tried to see that when I rewatched but I just couldn’t. From the moment he found out a SEAL was involved, he went into SEAL mode. Even when they were joking around him, he was all business. This, to me, wasn’t about showing off, it was about that military switch flipping in his head and he wasn’t doing anything crazy…..he was just doing his job. He knew going up against a SEAL wasn’t like going up against your average hostage taker. He went to that SEAL place in his head. lol.

    EEK! Now I wrote an essay. Told you I loved this episode.

    Posted by ESS @H50BAMF | January 30, 2013, 8:03 pm
    • It’s an interesting point you raise, about Steve and North Korea. I was talking to a co-worker today about a show we both watched, Friday Night Lights. We got to discussing how major events would happen to characters only never to be mentioned again. So what was the point of having them happen in the first place when the emotional and mental (in some cases physical) repercussions were never addressed. We didn’t come up with a solution but I did make use of Chin and his latest storyline.

      Very interesting review, Steph. Glad to see you’re back doing these.

      Posted by Infant_Sardonic | January 31, 2013, 2:01 am
    • I am glad this episode works so well for you…I love it when I love an episode so completely. πŸ™‚ The only word you used I would disagree with is “innocent.” At the end of the ep, Graham is being led off in handcuffs. Holding hostages is a crime of which he is guilty and for which many who attempt it get shot by SWAT teams regardless of their mental illness.

      The PTSD thing, yeah, well, I’m sure they had no idea they were going to North Korea when they wrote this ep.

      Posted by SJ2 (Junk Kicker) | January 31, 2013, 10:33 am
  10. Hi Steph, how did I miss this?
    Great analysis.
    This episode stands out for me as the one that got me REALLY hooked on H50. I remember being very impressed with AOL’s acting skills as I think the writing called for more from him.
    Also, as you say the relationship between Danny and Steve was developed further in this episode. I loved the frustration that Danny felt when Steve wasn’t going to call in SWAT but his acceptance of it. I also loved Danny’s increasing concern, panic almost, when he was driving his car and Steve wasn’t answering the phone.
    Also I think there was a real respect from Danny at the end for how Steve had handled this one pretty bloodlessly, going against his usual ‘all guns blazing’ approach.
    Steve’s humanity at the end in uncuffing the man so he could hug his daughter all played to Danny’s respecting him more and seeing him as a more complex human being.
    I thought the Navy SEAL was an intense actor too, which helped.
    Thanks.

    • Great point about how Steve showed his humanity & concern requesting that Graham get to greet his daughter uncuffed. The teamwork in this ep was pretty flawless. Steve thought telling Graham about Lily’s kidnapping would be a good idea but didn’t tell based on Danny’s opinion. Lots of give and take that made everything work out in the end.
