The episode began on Sand Island, where two men brought out , Lieutenant Detective Chin Ho Kelly (Daniel Dae Kim), who had a hood on his head. Afterwards, he headed over Lieutenant Commander Steve McGarrett’s (Alex O’ Loughlin) house, and told him that according to the intelligence he gathered, the man in the picture with Adam Noshimuri (Ian Anthony Dale) was Goro Shiyoma, a Yakuza oyabun, who had been very close to Adam’s father. However, Steve told Chin Ho not to confront Adam until he had all of the facts.


Meanwhile, elsewhere on the island, things went south after a police officer did a routine pull over on a car whose tail light had gone out.

The next morning, Detective Danny “Danno” Williams (Scott Caan) told his girlfriend, Melissa Armstrong (Lili Simmons) that he would make pancakes for her, and lied about receiving several text messages from his ex-wife, Rachel Edwards (Claire van der Boom), who wanted to meet up later that morning.

Meanwhile, Officer Kono Kalakaua (Grace Park) went over the last few things with her wedding planner, and confided to her that surprisingly enough, the hardest part about planning her wedding was the fact that her mother, who was not in good health, wasn’t able to help her out.

They were then called to the crime scene, where they discovered thanks to the police officer’s dashboard camera, that he had been shot he liberated the man who was being held in the trunk. The man then shot the driver of the car, which Kono and Chin found torched in Ke’ehi Lagoon, where there were no security cameras to catch who the culprit truly was.

At the morgue, Dr. Max Bergman (Masi Oka) told them that the victim was Greg Farmer (Matt Lasky), who was a bounty hunter from Nevada. Thanks to the fresh asphalt on his shoes, they managed to trace it to an area in Pearl City, where they discovered that a man named David Sutter seemed very suspicious.

However, upon entering Sutter’s house, they discovered that another bounty hunter, Richie Malloy (Brad William Henke), was lying in wait for his prey. They then discovered that the man being hunted was Andrew Pelham (Michael Rodrick), a police officer from Long Island who had killed three people, and was worth around forty thousand dollars. They then sent him on his way.

Afterwards, Danny met up with Rachel, who told him that little Charlie was his son, and that she needed him to get tested to see if his bone marrow was a good match for Charlie, as he had a rare disease whose treatment included a bone marrow transplant. Danny then vowed to be in his son’s life, and got upset at Rachel for not telling her about it sooner.

Chin Ho then discovered that Pelham had bought a ticket out of Hawaii from a computer in someone’s apartment, but while they chased him, he was taken by Malloy. However, they managed to catch up with Malloy thanks to some insider information from Duane “Dog” Chapman or “Dog the Bounty Hunter”. However, he told them that he had delivered Pelham alive to Malcolm Leddy (Robert Curtis Brown), the father of the first victim, who wanted to exact revenge. However, as Steve called Leddy on Malloy’s phone, they managed to discover his location.

They then found him injured on the floor, as Pelham had cut off his finger to get out of his restraints. He later then attacked Steve, who managed to defeat him, and told Leddy that Pelham was never going to see the light of day again.


Afterwards, Danny went to the Children’s Hospital where he played with his son while waiting to get his blood tested to see if he was a good match for him.
