Amidst a wave of robberies with relatives tied up as leverage for the owner to 'cooperate,' restaurant chain owner Griffin's corpse is found tied-up in his pool at home. However he was alone and actually killed before being bound. Danny fatherly breaks the news to crushed bright preteen son Josh, whose custody and management of the firm go to his aunt, Samantha Martell, who left it, perhaps forcibly, to head the Griffin charity, which looks after street children, mainly by offering free gym programs. While the team works out the identity and motive of the fiend, Joe White calls a marker on a lip-reader to clarify father McGarret's investigation, but that leads to a direct confrontation with Wo Fat, who kills again to stop them.

While examining the body, Max states that due to the size of the bullet hole on the victim's chest, the gun used was a .38 caliber. In truth, the .38, .380, 9x18, and 9x19 rounds are virtually indistinguishable by naked eye, being mere hundredths of an inch difference in diameter. See more »


Vitor Boriero: Yo McGarrett. Thanks for taking my spot on the card. Jake wouldn't want the fans to be cheated out of a fight.
Steve McGarrett: It's all for the kids, bro. I'll try to put on a good show for you... Besides, I'm the one who, um, dislocated your shoulder.
Vitor Boriero: Yeah, I didn't forget. Hit 'em hard bro.

Showing off Tattoo ***
25 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Since proving herself worthy, Kono was given little opportunity in this episode.

You knew that something was up when the robbers were caught so early in the game. Of course, they had nothing to do with the homicide as we see the blame for that one going around and around.

For charity purposes, McGarrett agrees to go into the ring. You wonder how this can be tied to the general story, but presto, it is done quite well in that regard.

What was John McGarrett up to? What's with Wo-Fat? Will they ever capture this guy?
