Just have to take a moment to sigh over the above picture. Dang that salt and pepper is SEXY!!!
Okay… now we can discuss the episode. Danny’s ex-partner from the Honolulu Police Department has been murdered and his body is found in a BBQ pit at a Hawaiian Luau. His ex-partner’s wife begs him to help figure out what happened and thus Steve and Danno are thrown into the investigation.
They go and visit the cop taking the lead in the investigation and it is an officer from I.A. (Internal Affairs). He tells the Five-0 team that the dead officer was suspected of being dirty but he is very loose with actual details and he warns Danny to back off. All the officers at HPD are very close lipped as well but they do find out that the deceased booked a flight to Singapore and was set to leave the next day. An HPD officer tells them he has heard a new drug cartel has moved in and they like to send messages to those that oppose them. When investigating this group they see that the MO looks the same.
A new lead takes the team to an art gallery. They grab a guy selling drugs as well as art and Danno takes him for a ride on the hood of his car. I think Steve’s methods are growing on him. After the ride the guy is much more amenable to talking. He tells them that the cartel has a man inside HPD that tells them every move the force makes and that a delivery is coming in the following night. Danno and Steve get into it though and Danno walks out on the team after Steve tries to get him to admit that his ex-partner could have been in on the drug trafficking.
Chin Ho gets him to calm down and takes the opportunity to tell Danny how much he appreciates what he is doing for a cop he knows wasn’t dirty because no one did that for him. Danno is inspired to go with Steve’s original idea to find out who the inside guy is so his friend can be cleared but Danny and Steve make nice anyway in very sweet “bromance” moment.
The team goes to an airstrip to take down the cartel as they arrive. Â Things get out of hand quickly and a shoot out ensues. The HPD man they brought along kills the suspect before he can be questioned. Danno is quick to figure out that this is the dirty cop and they manage to get proof at the last minute.
This episode was pretty good. I give it 3 out of 4 fallen heroes.
