Hawaii Five-O Wiki


Ma Lalo o ka 'ili (Beneath the Surface) is the 17th episode of Season 4 in the remake version of Hawaii Five-0.


Five-0 aims to uncover the sordid truth when a girl is taken from her home and her father is shot in the process while Danny tries to get his parents back together, and Jerry deciphers a code he found on the bottom of McGarrett’s champ tool box. 


Mr. Donovan was fatally shot at home, where his teen daughter Kelly was apparently abducted by her illicit boyfriend, ex juvenile con and abused foster circuit orphan Tommy Fa'aloa, whose garage employer Gary 'Aikapu believes he's a good kid now. The teens are spotted in stolen cars, even shooting a defensive owner and robbing a store, but Five-O works out only slowly the devious plot of a psychotic killer.

Danny can't accept or stop his mother dating around, even seeing an attorney to file for divorce, and arranges an atypically expensive surprise, the point being a special guest, his father, who hadn't called his wife in the entire time she'd been in Hawaii.

Steve's efforts to send helpful but undesired housemate Jerry back home suffer frustrations, but he actually comes up with a priceless clue to missing mother Doris "Shelbourne"'s whereabouts, which Steve confronts the CIA with.



  • Kelly's father
  • Tommy Fa'aloa


Steve McGarrett: Divorce attorney?
Danny Williams: Mm-hmm.
Steve McGarrett: You sure?
Danny Williams: I'm positive.
Steve McGarrett: She told you that?
Danny Williams: (loud exhale) No, it's not what she told me.
Steve McGarrett: (questioning) You followed her?
Danny Williams: (hesitently) I might have followed her.
Steve McGarrett: (smiling) You followed her!
Danny Williams: I did. But she was being very suspicious this morning, okay? She's sneaking all around the house. And you're not allowed to judge me, okay, because I know for a fact that you surveilled your own mother, and that makes us even, so...
(Steve gets his big goofy grin going enjoying Danny squirming)
