Hawaii Five-O Wiki

Ka Haunaele (Rampage) is the 20th episode of Season 6 in the remake version of Hawaii Five-0.

Synopsis[]

Five-0 investigates the theft of a high-tech, indestructible suit created for the U.S. military. Meanwhile, Jerry tries to help his sister save a elephant.

Plot[]

The team is called to a base for a secret defense contractor. After having the team sign confidentiality agreements, the director of the facility informs the team that an $80 million defense suit was stolen. The team furiously works to track down the suit since it is basically a fully functioning version of what Iron Man wears. They strike out with past and present employees, as well as rival investors since the Department of Justice already had wire taps on all of those.

The man wearing the supersuit takes something valuable from evidence lockup. After a thorough inventory Five-0 realizes the man took a gun which links a slippery, major criminal named Waiola to a murder. Without the gun there is no case. Steve and Danny break Waiola’s lawyer, who informs them that the monetary exchange for her client’s gun goes down in an hour. The culprit turns out to be a disgruntled former employee of the defense contractor, who was fired for trying to sell the suit’s schematics to the highest bidder. For such a high profile case, the resolution was pretty quick.

During the case Jerry’s gorgeous little sister Isobel arrives in town for a visit. Jerry thinks that his little sister is just in town on vacation from UCLA Law. *Eric finds out that it was actually Isobel who lost track of a circus elephant which nearly flattened NFL players Michael and Martellus Bennett, who made a quick cameo as themselves this week. Isobel has been working with an activist group for captive wild animals in her spare time. Years ago when Tyke the elephant escaped the circus in Honolulu and HPD had no choice but to shoot the elephant, it made a lasting impression on Isobel (on a sidenote, Hawaii Five-0 used actual footage from the attack during the episode). Even though she shouldn’t be asking, Isobel begs her brother to get the elephant she recaptured to safety. *So Jerry enlists Kamekona, Max, and Eric’s help to get Maisie the elephant to a sanctuary in Thailand. Jerry’s great at solving mysteries and conspiracies, but he’s not exactly subtle. Steve is aware of everything that Jerry and Isobel were up to, but he decides to let it go.

Lest Five-0’s greatest villain be forgotten, Kono finally learns that Gabriel went to visit Adam in prison three months ago. Now that Gabriel is basically on a killing spree to rid the island of all the gang leaders, he needs a second-in-command to help him run what he believes will be his new empire. Adam tells Kono he refused Gabriel’s offer, but given that Adam is still breathing, Kono isn’t so sure she believes her husband.

Notes[]

  • NFL players and brothers Michael Bennett (Seattle Seahawks) and Martellus Bennett (New England Patriots) guest star as themselves.
  • The rampage of Tyke The Elephant on August 20, 1994 was mentioned after Isobel told Jerry about when they were kids and couldn't go to the circus. After years of abuse, torture, and confinement, Tyke snapped which resulted in injuring her groomer, Dallas Beckwith and killing her trainer, Allen Campbell after attempting to save Beckwith from being crushed. Tyke then ran out of the Blaisdell Arena and on the streets of Kaka'ako where she nearly trampled Circus Promoter, Steve Hirano who tried to fence her in. The Honolulu Police started firing at her, deterring the animal away from Hirano. For thirty minutes, Tyke ran through the streets of the Kaka'ako Central Business District looking for freedom, but the HPD continued firing at her and eventually, after being shot 86 times all over her body, succumbing to nerve damage, brain hemorrhage, and a lethal injection given, Tyke collapsed and died. In the aftermath, lawsuits were filed against the City of Honolulu, the State of Hawaii, Tyke's owner, John Cuneo Jr. and his company, Hawthorn Corp. A separate lawsuit was filed against Cuneo Jr by Honolulu lawyer, William Fenton Sink on behalf of numerous plaintiffs, including a number of children suffering from psychological trauma as the result of witnessing Tyke's killing. Both sets of lawsuits were settled out of court with details of any monetary decision sealed from publication. Tyke would become symbolic of circus tragedies and a symbol for animal rights. The animal rights group, Animal Rights Hawaii had renamed the Order of Innocent Award as the "William Fenton Sink Award for Defense of Animals" in honor for Sink's involvement in Tyke's case. Hawaii would later become the second US State to ban wild animal circus acts on December 21, 2018.
    • In the 2015 documentary, Tyke Elephant Outlaw that covered the August 1994 incident, Tyke's former trainer, Tyrone Taylor (who was also Tyke's trainer at the time of the incident) had admitted prior to the 20th August 1994 rampage, Tyke had being involved in three other incidents:
      • On the 21st April 1993, Tyke had escaped during a performance at the Jaffa Shrine Centre in Altoona, Pennsylvania, bursting through the Centre's doors and causing $14,000 in damages before being recaptured a hour later. An affidavit given to the United States Department of Agriculture from a circus worker had stated that the following day on the 22nd April 1993, while the circus was still in Altoona, Tyke had attacked a tiger trainer.
      • On the 2nd July 1993, Tyke had went on another rampage, at the North Dakota State Fair in Minot, North Dakota, trampling and injuring her handler and started to roam through the fairground, before being recaptured 25 minutes later. Reports filed by both the USDA and Canadian authorities had stated that witnesses had seen Tyke's handler "physically beating a single bush elephant (later identified as Tyke) to a point where the elephant started screaming and started to bend down on three legs to avoid being hit". Witnesses had also observed that "every time the handler walked passed by the elephant, the elephant would scream and veer away to show fear from the handler's presence."
    • After the August 1994 rampage, it was later revealed that Campbell was a subject of multiple complaints for animal cruelty. While working at the Denver Zoo in the late 1980s, Campbell was reported on several occasions for physically abusing Denver Zoo's elephants while working at the zoo's elephant and camel rides. A autopsy of Campbell's body revealed that he had a mixture of cocaine and alcohol in his system, both of which he allegedly obtained from a fellow circus worker.
