Hawaii Five-0 - Kanalu Hope Loa

The robbery of a Waikiki tour bus by a gang of three bikini clad thieves (Allie Gonino, Sumire, Sonya Balmores) offers the young surfers and Five-0 more than they initially bargained for. The shooting of one of the bus’ passengers who was being held-up by another woman (Erica Piccininni) at the time of the robbery forces Kono (Grace Park) to go undercover to find the surfers. After arresting one of the girls it takes more than a little convincing to make the young woman understand just how much danger the other two women are in if Five-0 doesn’t find them before the killers.

Hawaii Five-0 - Pe'epe'e Kanaka

The investigation into the murder of a pool boy gets far more interesting when Five-0 uncovers an Al-Qaeda connection to the home where the young man was found shot and a plot involving the recruitment of local college kids to bomb an Air Force base on the island. Calling in Grover (Chi McBride), Five-0 takes down two members of the cell and captures a third uncooperative member (Pretty Little LiarsSasha Pieterse) who is too busy spouting her philosophy to offer any remorse for her actions or clues to the higher-ranking members of the cell bankrolling the kids’ efforts.

Chin Ho Kelly (Daniel Dae Kim) and Jerry’s (Jorge Garcia) high school reunion turns deadly in Hawaii Five-0‘s “fan episode” where several elements of the murder of the week were voted on by the show’s fans include the unusual “death by stiletto.” Learning that the victim had never returned to the island after graduation until the day she died, which also included a trip to the bank to withdraw $200,000 to anonymously pay for the surgery of a woman she had never met just hours before her murder.

Hawaii Five-0 - Ma lalo o ka 'ili

What appears to be a simple murder-kidnapping becomes far more interesting as Five-0 discovers the young man (Booboo Stewart) with a criminal record who committed the crimes is actually the young woman’s (Moanie Hara) boyfriend who she is with of her own free will. Discovering a history of abuse between the woman and her father, Five-0 begins to piece together what really went down on the night her father was killed, but they have to scrap all their theories when Kono‘s (Grace Park) digging into the proof of the young woman’s abuse proves that it was all recently fabricated.

With the help of their old conspiracy pal Jerry (Jorge Garcia) and a Chinese spy (Elaine Tan) Five-0 investigate a Chinese spy satellite that crashed in the Pacific Ocean and the treacherous Chinese mercenary who killed three witnesses and plans to sell the data on the satellite (containing sensitive U.S. Naval troop movements) to the highest bidder. Despite not being able to completely trust the spy (who Jerry tases in his mother’s basement and who has a connection to the terrorist she’s has told them about), the group still manages to recover the intel before it hits the black market.
