  • Chin goes undercover to investigate a protection racket. But when he's recognized, the leader kills him and dumps his body at the Iolani Palace. Steve sets out to get the one who killed him. He brings in the head of the organization behind the protection racket and asks for his help. He refuses. Chin's daughter arrives and Steve tells her what happened. It turns out that she knows the daughter of the head of the organization and uses her relationship with her to see if she can find out who killed her father.

  • While Chin Ho Kelly investigates a protection racket run by the Hawaiian "kumu" mob, three mob members recognize him as being from Five-O. The deputy leader of the kumu, who is trying to undermine his boss, murders Chin and dumps him right in front of the Iolani Palace. A grief-stricken and enraged McGarrett confronts the kumu boss, who didn't know about the hit, and threatens a statewide crackdown. Meanwhile, the underboss gets busy eliminating possible witnesses to the hit. When confronted by his boss, he finally admits to the murder and pretends to leave the country to take off the heat -- but instead orders a hit on McGarrett himself.
