A reputed treasure diver is found murdered. The valuable Spanish coins found in his home, which must stem from one of the most wanted wrecks, are however fake, and he was secretly working for a world-famous salvager, whose reputation is at stake. But several small shrimps in the story also hide the truth. Trough the victim's family past, the team discovers why he was obsessed with a Honoluly raid-sunk warship, a veteran's casket and a fortune in war-stamped banknotes. Steve meanwhile discovers that his former mentor Joe White tried to prevent him finding out the truth about father McGarrett's fatal past. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


As shown on the season two gag reel, the scene around the computer table had to be re-shot as Scott Caan's dog Dot wandered onto the set to be greeted by a cheerful "Hi, Dot" from Alex O'Loughlin. See more »


After finding a severed hand in the ocean, the medical examiner states that he found elevated levels of lead in the residual blood. He states that this means that the victim was shot before he lost his hand. Five-O later finds the bullet on the boat, which indicates that bullet passed completely through the victim. The only way you could get high levels of lead in your system from a bullet is if you were shot, the bullet was never removed and the lead would leach into your bloodstream over months or years. Since the bullet had passed through him, the victim would have had very little to almost no lead in his system. See more »

Various Voices from the Beach: What is that? Come on, get out of the water! Look out. Look behind you. It's a shark!
Elizabeth: [screams as Aaron pops up out of the water laughing in goggles with a shark fin strapped to his head] Aaron! That wasn't funny!
Aaron: [removing goggles] You're the only one who isn't laughing.

Good episode that really went around the bush in relating the story. When a sea diver is murdered, there are too many explanations regarding his sea diving. Some of the scenes reminded me of Lloyd Bridges diving away in the epic television show-"Sea Hunt" of years ago.

The show seemed to be producing the stars of yesteryear. Patty Duke portrayed an Alzheimer's stricken mother; Peter Fonda briefly joining her as a fellow diver and Billy Baldwin seems to have found a weekly role for himself as the guy that the Grace Park character has hooked up. For her new part,Park really looks like a hooker, but her real intent is still a secret. Watch her cagey eye movements; they seem to tell the whole story.
