Five-O intercepts a "box man," an expert safe cracker, at the Honolulu airport. The criminal is killed by a shot from Dan Williams, who fired just before the criminal would have shot Chin Ho. The man had $20,000 and instructions to check into a hotel on Hilo. McGarrett goes undercover, posing as the box man. The lawman finds himself involved in a conspiracy involving two other criminals, Swanson and Andre, as well as a woman. All claim to know nothing about "the Man" who is sending them instructions. Eventually, McGarrett discovers the target of the plot -- a yacht where a diplomat of another nation is staying which has six kilos of heroin in a very secure safe. (This episode apparently takes place before episode 1.16, "The Box," where Swanson appears as an inmate in Oahu State Prison.) Written by

Swanson's jacket had the words, "Muana Loa..." on the back. This was pronounced as "Mauna Loa..." and is a misspelling. See more
