Ho'onani Makuakane (Honor Thy Father) is the 10th episode of Season 4 of the 2010 remake version of Hawaii Five-0.

Synopsis Edit

The team investigates the attempted murder of a Pearl Harbor veteran. As the team digs deeper, they unearth decades-old evidence of a horrific crime at an Oahu internment camp during World War II.

Plot Edit

McGarrett stops David Toriyama from killing Ezra Clark, a Pearl Harbor veteran. Toriyama claims that Ezra murdered his father, James Toriyama in 1943 following the internment of Japanese-American citizens, including the Toriyama's, in order to steal the family katana, despite the official record that David's father was killed by a fellow internet.

Five-0 decide to investigate the claim, where they learn that there was a cover-up of the events, but Ezra was not responsible for the murder, now suspected to have been committed by Joseph Archer, a career criminal who had since died.

After exhuming James's body, they find a ballistics match to Archer's weapon, and they also find the katana in his grandson's home.

When the katana is finally returned to the Toriyama family, David recounts to Steve how he knew the latter's grandfather, who was killed during the Pearl Harbor attack.

Notes Edit

Quotes Edit

Danny Williams: Well, I'd like to state, for the record, that I am confused. We got an old guy with a gun who made a premeditated decision to kill somebody. And we don't lock him up, instead we, uh, we run errands for him.
Steve McGarrett: This isn't a street crime. And it's not about money. This case is about honor. His method, it was wrong. I don't condone it. But we owe it to him to, at the very least, investigate.
Danny Williams: Okay, I see what's happening. You know what you're becoming, right?
Steve McGarrett: Bet you're gonna tell me, aren't you?
Danny Williams: A big softie.
Steve McGarrett: I was right.
Danny Williams: With a bleeding heart, which somehow you now have. I mean, I don't know, maybe-maybe you're becoming a human being, Steve.
