First she’s used as bait to trap an art smuggler (White Collar‘s Willie Garson) into leading Five-0 to their attempted murderer and then she along with Chin (Daniel Dae Kim) goes undercover at an underground art auction selling stolen art to select connoisseurs.

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.
