A police officer is shot while moonlighting as a funeral escort and the only clue is a shell casing that has his name engraved on it. A few days later another officer, who happened to be the former partner of the first officer, is shot and killed during a shootout. At first it is thought that the officer was killed by the criminal, but when they figure out that the officer was shot from a higher elevation and a shell casing with that officer's name found where the shot was fired, McGarrett begins to suspect that both officers were targeted by the same man. Also, a few days later someone takes a shot at Steve he figures out that the killer is Curt Stoner, who blamed the two officers as well as Steve's dad and Duke for the loss of his hands in an attempted bank robbery. Unfortunately, Duke is shot and seriously wounded by Stoner, and because Steve's father is dead is now targeting the younger McGarrett. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

He Got the Hook in the End ***1/2
5 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Routine episode where a man who lost his arms and blamed the police during a bank robbery, returns from jail years later and starts blowing away the police he blamed for the incident.

What's really good about this episode is that it shows the contentious behavior that exists between Steve and Danny. Danny is forever criticizing Steve's methodology in the handling of these particular cases. No matter what, this really never seems to affect their personal relationship as they both regard each other with very high esteem.

Technology certainly played a big role in the eventual apprehension of the killer.
