Hawaii Five-O Wiki

Kama'e (The Hero) is the 3rd episode of the second season in the remake version of Hawaii Five-0.


When a Navy SEAL turns up dead, Joe asks McGarrett to take a second look at his death. Kono is spending time with a group of ex-cops that were rumored to be dirty, much to Chin's disappointment.


A Navy SEAL, Petty Officer Clay Garcia is found dead.

Joe White who taught Garcia asks Steve McGarrett for help. Although the first autopsy declared it a suicide, further investigation reveals that Garcia was drugged and shot in the head so that the death would resemble a suicide.

The team also probe the death of another Navy SEAL who died in a supposed car accident and they soon learn from Max Bergman that the SEAL was dead before the accident.

After finding Wade Gutches during BUD/S training, it's soon revealed that both SEALs were part of a covert team that was given the operation of finding and taking down a Central American drug cartel.

Furious about that revelation, the cartel hired an assassin, Hector Ruiz with Ruiz targeting all the members of the team. Ruiz's third and final target is Lieutenant Bradley Jacks.

Ruiz drugs Jacks with a sedative and throws him out of a plane, intending to disguise it as a jump gone wrong, but his plan is disrupted when Steve's colleagues, Danny Williams and Chin Ho Kelly arrive to arrest Ruiz.

Unwilling to do so, Ruiz attempts to fight back but is shot and killed while Steve manages to rescue Jacks.

At the Naval Station Pearl Harbor, the Navy uses the intelligence that Hawaii Five-0 gathered during their investigation to dismantle the cartel for good with all surviving members of SEAL Team 9 as Five-0, along with Gutches and White, watch the operation through the SEAL team's camera feeds. Kono Kalakaua as she begins hanging around with a group of corrupt cops led by Frank Delano.

The episode ends with Kono using Chin's password to log onto the HPD Database.

  • Joe White introduced Steve McGarrett as Commander instead of his lower rank of Lieutenant Commander. Lieutenant Commanders are commonly referred to as Commander, but in writing are generally referred to by their actual rank.
  • Pending SEAL members in BUD/S training are shown.
  • Steve McGarrett worked on a classified mission titled, Operation Strawberry Field.
  • This is one of the few time Danny Williams is seen driving while Steve McGarrett is the passenger.
  • Steve shoots a decent grouping (slightly left of center) with his fathers rifle at 372 meters (approx. 407 yd.). Joe still out shoots him by hitting the 700 yd target twice using the same rifle.
  • The rank insignia for CDR Wade Gutches is incorrectly worn in the first meeting (BUD/S training scene) with a golden color insignia instead of the actual silver one that would be worn for a U.S. Navy Commander. The golden rank insignia is for that of the Lt. Commander rank same as a similarly ranked officer in the other armed forces. The correct rank insignia was worn later in the same episode.
