Episode Guide
Ke Koho Mamao Aku



Wawahi moe'uhane (Broken Dreams) is the 10th episode of Season 5 in the remake version of Hawaii Five-0, and 103rd episode in the series.


With the help of a private investigator, Five-0 investigates the murder of a young woman.

Plot Edit

Five-0 enlists the help of an old-school private detective to solve the murder of a young woman who was secretly working as an escort. With the help of an ex-HPD officer-turned private detective, Five-0 tries to solve the homicide of a woman who was working for a hula dancing company that is actually a front for an escort service.

Notes Edit

  • When McGarrett and Harry Brown question Robert Brown after interrupting the meeting he is holding in his office, there are two times where a man in a blue ball cap can be seen in the reflection in the glass over Robert Brown's shoulder. Nobody in the office should be wearing a ball cap that could explain the reflection.


Quotes Edit

Trivia Edit

  • The opening and narrative by a P.I. is directly emulating the film noir Sunset Boulevard (1950) which has a similar intro with a person face down in the pool (the P.I.) but is narrated by said murder victim.
