Hawaii Five-0 Season 6 Episode 6 Review: Na Pilikua Nui (Monsters)

We have a guest reviewer this week. A frequent commenter on TV Fanatic, Amy Conner. Please welcome her! 


Hawaii Five-0 Season 6 Episode 6 had so much going on in a short amount of time, that a flow chart would have been helpful.

All in all it was perfect for Halloween, and certainly lived up to its title.

Finding Grace - Hawaii Five-0

The murderer being a mortician by trade was a nice touch and upped the creepy factor, just in case we weren’t creeped out enough. Luckily the chase through the woods was just for some Halloween fun and not real, even if the body parts they found were.

There is a direct correlation with how far you walk to a crime scene, and how bad that crime scene is going to be.


The whole Frankenstein and his bride story was disturbing. When Max told Steve he would probably have kept on killing, trying to perfect his bride if he hadn’t been stopped, I got chills thinking about it.

With the pummeling, it looked like Steve took by the murderer. It was surprising he made it out of there in one piece. The time warp from the 1980s made it look like time stood still, which for our murderer, I guess it did. For someone who deals with murders every week, you could tell that finding these murder victims all pieced together into one really took its toll on Steve.

There has only been one other case that I can recall that affected him more and will probably never be topped. Will they ever revisit that one, or should they leave it alone? And do you know which one I am talking about?

It’s filthy, good grief; he must have killed the maid too.


While the case brought back painful memories for Max, it also helped him solve it, with his personal, expert knowledge on this type of crime. Max has turned something horrible into something positive, which is a good thing. Eric is kind of growing on me and as long as they keep his screen time fairly short, he should be a great addition.

One of the highlights in all this mayhem was when Jerry sauntered into the blood bank to the tune of “Monster Mash” wearing his Dracula costume. Having two of the crimes tie together made sense and seemed less overwhelming and botchy. What’s a good vampire story without him taking one to the heart, even if it was a bullet and instead of a stake? So vampires don’t do takeout, good to know.

Chin: What kind of thieves takes blood? Jerry: Vampires.

Danny had a lot on his plate being a dad tonight. His practicing what to say to Grace once he got there was comical. He obviously still has some unresolved anger toward Rachel with all the pain she has caused him concerning Charlie.

You lied to your mother, who is in fact a liar herself.


With Grace being only 13 years old, she had no business at what looked like an unchaperoned house party. Danny had every right to be upset and disappointed in her actions. At least she probably wasn’t drinking alcohol or Danny would have gone ballistic once he took a sniff of her drink. She has some making up to do in the trust department.

I’m going to take that plastic sword and turn you into a Roman popsicle, OK.


Watching Danny with Charlie is bittersweet. While it is sweet to see they are bonding and forging a father and son relationship, it is sad to think of all the time they lost, thanks to Rachel and her deceit. Their trick or treating through the hospital was so cute and it was nice to see their first Halloween together wasn’t ruined by Grace’s shenanigans.

So do you agree with Jerry, do vampires really exist? Is there a difference between a good lie and bad lie, or is a lie a lie.

I am looking forward to Hawaii Five-0 Season 6 Episode 7 when Steve goes on a first date with a new love interest. He is not wasting any time!

Don't forget, you can watch Hawaii Five-0 online any time via TV Fanatic!
