After taking part in an investigation in Honolulu, Hawaii, G and Sam return aboard a military aircraft to Los Angeles; two detectives, Danny Williams and Chin Ho Kelly, from the task force called Hawaii Five-0, accompany them; they together seek to intercept a rogue epidemiologist, Prodeman, who stole nine vials of smallpox virus; Prodeman's traveling companion dies of hemorrhagic smallpox before landing at the LAX airport aboard a commercial flight; Prodeman eludes capture and leaves the airport. Sam and Chin tackle Prodeman near his motel; he gives the name of Dr. Rachel Holden, whom the team pursue; Kensi and Deeks play nurse and doctor and produce results; G turns over a motor home, but the team does not find any stuff; still, though, they figure out the whole thing, then they find the bad woman, who holds alternative views and acts on them, and they not only interrupt the distribution of free T-shirts but also prevent a disaster of unimaginable proportions.

When Hetty prepared to give Deeks, Chin Ho Kelly, and Danny Williams the smallpox vaccine, she prepare to give it as a standard injection. The smallpox vaccine is given as a series of skin pricks using bifurcated (two-pronged) needle that is dipped into the vaccine solution. This is the vaccine that is responsible for that small round scar on the upper arm of most Americans born before 1972 (when the US stopped routine vaccinations). It also takes several days before one develops a skin reaction so Deeks' pain isn't accurate either. See more »


Henrietta 'Hetty' Lange: [greeting Danny and Chin Ho] You are the first outsiders to ever step foot into this operations center. It shows you the severity of the situation.
Danny 'Danno' Williams: Well, I appreciate you not blindfolding us.
