Thanks to the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championships, we were robbed of our weekly hour of “Hawaii Five-0” viewing. And like many of you, after the ending of the “Na Me‘e Lāua Na Paio” (Heroes and Villains), I am still on the edge of my seat, mouth wide open, especially after the cryptic scene with Wo Fat and our nothing-can-phase-me-McGarrett.
Since I do not have McG and Danno carguments to dissect or Chin Ho technological wizardry to marvel upon, I’ve been thinking about different theories that our favorite Monday night show has introduced and have so far not wrapped up. And I know we’ve all been racking our collected Five-0 fevered brains.
Now, to be honest, I try not to read too many other blogs, but I know that many of you have the same theories, and have chatted about them on Twitter and Facebook. Many of these ideas are from the collective consciousness of the Five-0 fandom — think “great minds think alike” and such. Some of these theories are from conversations I’ve had with fans of the show or family members who love me and indulge my every whim and Five-0 obsession.
Remember — these are just my ideas on the plot points and my theories on what they mean or who is behind the mysteries presented to McGarrett and our Five-0 team. I offer no real conclusions or solutions — just some theories for thought. I have organized my theories with headings and bullet points for your ease and critical analysis pleasure. I am making the assumption that all of you understand the basis of the theory, and I figured it would be redundant after 18 blogs to repeat the plot points. If you don’t remember the specific storyline, not to worry, I’m sure it will be addressed before the end of the season — or at least, in Season Two, once CBS officially renews our show (are you reading this CBS? Major hint). Enjoy and don’t fret my Five-0 friends, our Team will return next Monday for a new episode, “Ma Ke Kahakai,” and so will the Five-0 Redux with another breakdown.
THE $10 MILLION THEORY
The 10 million dollar question is — who replaced the money?
Here are my options of who replaced the $10 million.
- Wo Fat — most obvious option because he has the most money and what’s 10 million to an international criminal?
- The Governor — perhaps her protection of McGarrett is a debt she owes to his father Jack. And why we’re on the point of McG’s late father — how close was Governor Jameson to our hero’s daddy? The plot thickens.
- Jenna Kaye — is she really the plain jane CIA analysis on leave that we are lead to believe? My fellow Five-0 Fan, Charlie from Alabama, feels that Agent Kaye is a Wo Fat plant to keep McG and the Team away from Jack McGarrett’s original investigation. But if she replaced the money — she probably got it from bullet point number one. But it is an interesting alternate theory.
- A “Mystery Man” who would be whoever — or whatever — Jack McGarrett was investigating. But that seems to be Hiro Noshimuri and therefore Wo Fat and so we are back to option one.
All options lead me to the next theory…
