Ho'opa'i (Revenge) is the 21st episode of Season 1 in the remake version of Hawaii Five-0.


Five O turns up the heat on a crime boss after the safe house of an undercover police officer who infiltrated his organization is compromised which results in fatal casualties.


The safehouse of FBI agent Reggie Cole is ambushed and even though one of the bad guys are killed, Reggie's wife, Lisa Cole is shot dead.

Hawaii Five-0 tackle the case despite being warned by Cole's FBI superiors not to go after Jimmy Cannon, a crime boss that Cole has been targeting for two years.

Lieutenant Commander Steve McGarrett and Detective Danny Williams later visit Cole in hospital and discover that he's escaped with Danny believing that Cole is now on a one-man mission of revenge.

The team soon track down Cole with Cole revealing that Cannon didn't order his wife's death. In fact, it was Cannon's son, Richard Cannon who ordered the ambush and attack.

With Richard now arrested, Cole continues his investigation into Cannon.


Agent Allison Marsh: I want to talk to your boss.
Steve McGarrett: Lady! I answer to God, and to the Governor, neither of whom are going to help you out right now, so take a seat.
Steve McGarrett: Okay, so everything you're gonna cook for me this week is gonna have Spam in it?
Kamekona: Of course. It's Hawaiian steak. The nectar of the islands.
Steve McGarrett: Do you know what's in Spam? Okay, I'll tell you. It's processed pork parts, salt, and meat stock.
Kamekona: That's what give 'em the glaze. Taste.
Steve McGarrett: I don't wanna taste!
