Hawaii Five-O Wiki

Ina Paha (If Perhaps) is the 7th episode of Season 5 in the remake version of Hawaii Five-0 and is the 100th episode of the series.


Steve finds himself in the clutches of his sworn enemy, the infamous crime boss Wo Fat and during his imprisonment, Steve also learns what would have happened to the team and his own family and friends if they had taken different paths in life.


Steve is expertly kidnapped, locked in a padded room, and submitted to some brainwashing, rekindling the near-killing of his abducted father, before the actual torture with water-boarding and injections begins, by none other than Wo Fat, who shockingly tells him that Doris helped him because she's his mother too, or at last raised him as her own after killing his father until the CIA made her give him up. Steve struggles in agony to convince him he ignores the parental whereabouts.

While Danny and Chin haste to locate them, thanks to Adam Noshimuri's knowledge of Wo Fat's Yakuzi assets, Steve surprisingly fights free and engages in a duel with his half-brother, possibly to the death.
