Continuing his quest to prove his dead Navy buddy, Lt Dan Cook, innocent of cocaine charges, Magnum begins his own investigation of the Hawaiian cocaine trade. With the help of TC, Rick, and Dan's sister, he delves more and more deeply into the seamy underworld of smuggling. Finally he confronts a crime lord who both he and Dan had known from their previous tours of duty in Vietnam. Magnum has to deal with this crime boss if he is to establish Dan's innocence. Written by

This episode (now comprised of two parts that originally aired together on December 11, 1980) is the only one where the Ferrari 308 GTS that Magnum drives has a license plate of "56E-478". By the second episode, Magnum, P.I.: China Doll
(1980), it had a "Robin 1" vanity plate. See more
When Magnum is pursued by the beaten up car, after it goes over the cliff edge, he screeches his Ferrari to a halt, burning rubber from his tyres as he does so, leaving obvious black marks on the tarmac. However, after he drives off again, one of his pursuers climbs back onto the now empty road, which is also clear of tyre marks; it suggests that they filmed the crash, destruction of the car, and the climb back to the road before they filmed the scenes with Magnum.
