Hawaii Five-O Wiki

Ka Makuakane (Family Man) is the 2nd episode of Season 5 in the remake version on Hawaii Five-0, and 95th episode in the series.


H50 jump into action when a young girl is kidnapped, while Danny learns more about Matt being held hostage.


US Navy SEAL Jeff (on top-secret Afghan mission) and Angela Larkin's pre-teen daughter Sophia is kidnapped at her private school's play, clearly premeditated. They rule out ransom as the motive, but they think that it could have something to do with her father.

But she's there, so they call 5-0, and they deduce that the kidnapper got the wrong child. By the time a $1.6 million is demanded, it's clear she was mixed up with the intended target classmate, far richer Eric and Angela Porter's daughter Maggie.

The physical abductor is found but killed, and without the girl being found. The Five-0 team thinks this might not be about money; they check it out and think it might have something to do with the couple's business. Five-O works out the motive is revenge for a tragedy the Porter company is blamed for.

In the other storyline, drug baron Marco Reyes approaches Danny, demanding the $18.5 million that his brother Matt Williams stole from his cartel before disappearing three years ago.


  • 3 years since Matty left.
  • The episode shows Sophie Larkin being reunited with her mother. A different deleted ending has scenes having the show going ahead with Sophie eventually embracing her father who's returned for the show, with the Hawaii Five-0 Task Force present on both occasions.
  • Jerry's nickname for Steve is Captain America.



Kono Kalakaua: Thanks, Jerry. Look, I appreciate your help, but you really didn't have to stick around.
Jerry Ortega: Are you kidding? Research is my super power. Oh, by the way, I'm pretty sure I broke Captain America's printer. Also pretty sure he never used it. Found it under a plant.
Kono Kalakaua: Captain America?
Jerry Ortega: Yeah. That's my little nickname for McGarrett.
Kono Kalakaua: I like it.

Steve McGarrett: You got to drop that weapon right now. We know about the accident. We know it wasn't your fault.You got to drop that weapon right now.
Danny Williams: Easy.
Jason Hollier: Do you have any idea how it feels to lose someone you love? To live with the guilt that it's your fault?
Danny Williams: No, I can't imagine what that must feel like.
Jason Hollier: No, you can't.
