The scene opens with Roland Lowry, an Ex-NSA specialist, with a suitcase in a seat next to him that is to being taken to a secret meeting. However, Roland has his car crashed into by a white van. This causes the car to flip and turns it upside down. Several gunmen from the van kill Roland’s bodyguards and they kidnap him. Roland’s son is yelling for his dad over the phone that he wasn’t able to finish the call. Steve McGarrett listens to a recording that was left in his father’s red toolbox before he was murdered. The show then flashbacks to Steve swimming in the ocean, and being very happy. The recording of the info is playing and Steve chooses to take it to get the toolbar. Danny “Danno” enters Steve’s house and he says that a lot of people were at a party that he didn’t plan. The bartender’s malasadas walk into McGarrett’s house. But, he offers McGarrett some Malasadas. The chap between banter was quickly followed by McGarrett telling Danno that the “pants and tie look” won’t cut it in Hawaii. Danno goes on to tell McGarrett that this is the way every normal detective in America dresses, and it’s his favorite tie given to him by his daughter, Grace. McGarrett then gets a call about the kidnapping...Read the full recap
Danny: This is not Guantanamo! You can’t hang a guy off a roof!
Steve: (to the suspect) All I have to say is that you came at me with a gun, we struggled, you fell. What do you think about that, huh?
Danny: Hey! Hey! Listen to me! Listen to me. If a suspect dies, he no longer has the ability to speak, ergo, he’s useless to us!
Steve: (to the suspect) You think anybody’s gonna care? You just killed two people, buddy. I’d be doing the world a favour.
Danny: That’s enough!
Chin: Ladies! You can stop now. I got a fingerprint match off an Interpol database.
Steve: (to Danny) Ergo?
Danny: You and I are gonna have a long talk later, you understand? Get him up!
Danny: Is everything gonna become a personal mission for you? You hang a guy off a roof because you lost your father?
Steve: Danny, you know what...
Danny: No. No, no, no, no. I swear to God, I just wanna know. I wanna know because if everything is gonna become a personal mission to you, ok, I count my odds at job security, not to mention survival, pretty slim. Okay? We are partners. So if you are going to be the shoot first and ask questions later type of a guy, I would at least like to be consulted so I know when to duck.
Steve: (to Kono) I'm sorry you were put in danger today. We care for each other like a family, so please know we'll always do everything we can to protect you.
