S03xE07 – A young computer hacker just released from prison is abducted and murdered. Now it’s up to Five-0 to find his killer. With the help of the victim’s autistic brother, Kono and the team manage to identify the killer, a former South African military officer with a vengeance. It’s a little late upon finding this information as they take the victim’s family hostage in their own home. Kono happens to be there in hopes of recovering a password to an encrypted file the victim had left behind and does so. Turns out that’s what the killer is after as well. Kono’s status as Five-0 is discovered and also that she has the password in her possession, so she’s taken hostage on the road. Through a seriously Mission Impossible maneuver Five-0 is able to overtake the bad guys, recover Kono, and retrieve the password. All in a day’s work eh?
Meanwhile McGarrett has finally decided that his sister should know their mother is alive. So he’s flown her in, and she has a surprise guest with her, an elderly man. Little sis has failed at being a flight attendant, and has taken to care giving. McGarrett takes the news better than little sis does when he tells her mom is alive. She refuses to see her mother, that is until she has a heart-to-heart with her elderly patient. She gives in and goes to see her mother. It’s super touching as McGarrett looks on, happy that his family is reunited. Well those that are alive at least.
