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.

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.
