E'ao lu'au a kualima (Offer Young Taro Leaves To...)

1 (indistinct radio transmission) (radio chatter continues) (radio chatter continues) (truck beeps) - Morning, gentlemen.
- Uh-huh.
Uh, this is, uh, Nick.
It's his first day.
Well, it's nice to see a fresh face.
No offense, Carl.
Well, I got to say, you're lucky to have this guy as a partner.
Carl has seen it all.
Haven't you? Carl? Everything okay? - I'm sorry.
- (yells) (people gasping, murmuring) Don't do it! (grunts) (people shouting) Open it up! This is a robbery! Everybody stay calm and nobody gets hurt.
Come on.
(woman screams) ROBBER: Nobody needs to die today.
Hey, y'all think this a game, huh? (people screaming) ROBBER: Open it up! Open it up! Open the door or I'm going to kill you.
(people screaming) (robbers yelling commands) Head down! Start moving your way to the center of the bank.
Get off the door! Get to the center.
Look at the floor.
No heroes, no problems.
Got it? DISPATCHER: We have a 0-3-0.
Armed robbery in progress at Bank of Oahu.
1147 Kuhio Avenue.
Call's out.

Three minutes.
Three minutes.
There you go.
(radio crackles) Thank you.
(panicked yelling) Whoa! Do we have a problem? Damn it, Nick.
Nose to the floor.
(people screaming) Head down! Unless you want me to blow it off.
Yo, what the hell was that? What? He was giving me trouble.
Face down, nose to the floor.
We're almost out of here.
Real good, real good.
(grunts) Come on.
Let's go, kids.
Grab those doors.
Let's go.
Let's run.
Nobody move! Nobody move! Let's go.
(police radio chatter) ("Paranoid" by Black Sabbath playing) Finished with my woman 'Cause she couldn't help me With my mind People think I'm insane (sirens whooping) KALINO: Here they come.
OWEN: They're gaining on us.
Yeah, we got to try something else.
All day long I think of things But nothing seems to satisfy And so as you hear these words Telling you now of my state I tell you to enjoy life I wish I could but it's too late.
Hold on! (yells) [Hawaii Five-O theme song plays.]
Hawaii Five-O 9x17 E'ao lu'au a kualima ( Yo.
Hey, we know if this is the same crew that hit the Union Liberty Bank last week? Not unless they changed their MO.
That crew took 30 grand from the teller's drawer.
These guys came in and cleaned out the vaults to the tune of $2.
6 million.
- Whoa.
6 million? Banks don't carry that kind of cash, they got a couple hundred grand, tops.
Yeah, well, this just so happened to be the day where the bank was completely flushed with cash.
(indistinct conversations) Yeah, these guys clearly had inside information.
Oh, that ain't the half of it.
Wait till you see how they pulled this thing off.
Come with me.
and after I heard the gunshots, I didn't want to take any chances.
- Oh, Miss Lee, this is my partner - Junior.
Hey, Jenny.
You okay? Yeah, just shaken up, you know? - Okay.
Take a seat.
Jenny, she's an old friend of mine.
She was next door neighbors with my cousin.
And I saw her all the time growing up.
Wow, well, I'm sorry we have to meet like this.
Jenny, is there anything else that you could tell us about the people who did this? Sorry, but it all happened so fast, and my head was down the whole time.
I wish I could be more helpful.
McGARRETT: Okay, so, the partner's the inside man, right? Teams up with this crew, pulls off the job? Close but not quite.
This is the person Carl Norris walked into the bank with.
But I reached out to the armored truck company and according to them, the second guard assigned to today's run was this guy.
McGARRETT: Nohea Kepule.
Norris's usual partner.
They were seen leaving the armored truck facility this morning at 7:30 together.
This heist crew, they jack the truck, right? Somewhere along the route.
And they switch out their guy for Kepule.
Except it looks like they had their own truck.
According to HPD, the vehicle the crew were driving was packing enough horsepower to blow through a police roadblock and evade pursuit.
They had also fitted run-flat tires and bullet-proof glass.
I'm thinking they modified an identical vehicle to match the company's armored truck.
These armored truck companies outfit all of their trucks with GPS.
ADAM: I have visual on the van.
ADAM: Moving.
Guys, there's someone in the truck.
(groans) He's alive.
NOHEA: For real.
Level with me.
and ways surprising.
CARL: Mm-hmm.
And does it sound like it's over over, or it sound like I can get her back? Well, it depends.
Did she get a new haircut yet? - Uh, yeah, actually.
Last week.
- (laughs) Hell-- (stammers) Sorry, it-it's definitely over.
(scoffs) Why do you say that? What does that have to do with anything? Because, dude, when a woman gets a haircut after a breakup that's it; she's done.
She's hit the reset button, okay? Best you can do is forget about her and move on.
Just take it from a guy who's been married 20 years.
(phone ringing) All right? Never take them at face value.
There's always something more complicated going on.
Hi, honey.
Oh, your ears must be burning.
(laughs) Okay.
I understand.
Everything okay, brah? Uh, uh, take this left up here.
What you mean, take this left? - You know route, man, I - Just do it! - Are you crazy? - I'm so sorry.
(grunts) And that's the last thing I remember.
When I came to, my head was pounding.
Carl was gone.
That's it.
Thank you.
Thank you.
All right, thank you, guys.
Wait, wait, wait.
Is he okay? What happened? I'm sorry, uh, Carl didn't make it.
McGARRETT: We're really sorry.
Thanks for your help.
We'll be in touch, okay? Okay, so right before this guy goes postal, pulls a gun on his partner, he gets a phone call from his wife.
They were using her to leverage Carl into doing this.
- We got a home address? ADAM: Yeah.
In Kaimuki.
This doesn't look great.
He's one of our heist crew.
Stab wound to the carotid.
Must've bled out in minutes.
DANNY: That's great.
Who did it? (whimpering) The wife's injuries are minor.
She's still in shock, so they're taking her to the hospital.
It's probably gonna be a minute before we get a statement out of her.
Okay, well, in the meantime, we got an ID on the dead guy you found.
Name's Milo Harris, and, unsurprisingly, he's got a long list of priors.
In fact, he just got out of Halawa three weeks ago.
All right, look, let's dig into his known associates, hopefully that'll help lead us to the other members of this heist crew, and in the meantime, dump his phone.
Okay? All right, I'll keep you posted.
Well, I have to cancel my 5:00 p.
mermaid class.
This case isn't getting closed anytime soon.
What're you doing? I'm just scrubbing through footage from the robbery.
Isn't that your friend, Jenny? Yup, and check this out.
TANI: She was so adamant about the fact she hadn't seen anything.
She said her head was down the entire time.
So why would she be lying? JENNY: Okay, so, maybe I did lift my head at one point, but you have to understand, it all happened so quickly and I was terrified.
I guess I just didn't remember.
We-we do understand.
We do.
You were scared.
Adrenaline was pumping, the details are probably fuzzy.
Or maybe it was because you were scared of what these people might do to you if they found out that you were talking to the cops.
Jenny, if you're worried about your safety, our job is to protect you.
Okay? But you just have to tell us exactly what happened.
Hey, it's okay.
It's okay.
I don't know if it was the sound of his voice, but I instantly recognized him.
And I knew that if I was right then he probably recognized me, which meant he could come after me.
Come after my family.
Hey, Jenny, look.
I won't let that happen.
I promise you.
It was Tory.
Tory Laeha.
You sure? JENNY: Yes.
His eyes, his voice, his build.
I'm 99% sure it was him.
Tory Laeha is Layla's boyfriend.
Your ex Layla? Yeah.
(gasps) Pick up that phone and call your husband, now.
(phone unlocks, dialing) Give me the phone.
CARL (on phone): Hi, honey.
Oh, your ears must be burning.
Listen very carefully and don't say a word.
We have your wife.
Did he say anything else during that time? Anything else that might help us? I-I remember he said on the phone, before he hung up Uh-huh? "I'll see you at the harbor.
" Okay.
The harbor, that's that's good.
Did he say which one? (crying): I'm sorry! No, no, no, you did great.
You've helped us out a great deal, Caitlyn.
Thank you so much.
You asked me for advice, and I gave it to you.
You got to bring this to McGarrett, like, now.
I can't! Okay? Not until I'm 100% sure that it was Tory.
I owe Layla that much.
Do you? Yeah.
I think you should maybe rethink your priorities, Joon.
No? If McGarrett finds out that you're sitting on information that slowed down an investigation, you could be out of a job.
You don't think I know that? See, it wasn't that long ago that I was there for you when you got mixed up with the gun in Adam's house.
That was entirely different 'cause Adam was one of us.
Tani, I get that Layla means nothing to you, but she means a lot to me.
All right, I got your back.
Whatever you need to do, just do it, and do it fast.
All right.
Just give me one hour, okay? Just let me talk to Layla and see what I can find out.
Thank you.
Wh-- D-- Do you want me to come? No, it's okay.
I got this.
LAYLA: Just a minute.
Junior, wow.
I know it's been a while, but you did say we should catch up.
(chuckles) Yeah, that was, uh, that was quite a while ago.
I remember because this guy was about to pop.
You want to introduce me? Yeah, yeah, uh, Junior, this is Kai.
Hey, Kai.
Hey, buddy.
Um You like trucks? LAYLA: Tory and I did the math, and after paying for daycare I'd maybe be breaking even with what I was making from teaching, so I figured, why pay someone else to watch my kid? Yeah.
Well, it makes sense.
I always knew you'd make a great mom someday.
(Kai crying) Uh, sorry, I need to put Kai down for his nap.
Yeah, of course.
Oh Come on, little man.
Time for some shut-eye.
Let's go.
Uh, just give me one sec.
Okay, I'll (laughs) Sorry about that.
No, no, you're okay.
So, uh, how is Tory, by the way? What's he been up to these days? Oh, he's good.
He's got a job at a body shop.
He's been working really hard, taking a lot of overtime and stuff.
It's not easy supporting a family on a single income, but (clicks tongue) we manage.
He still hanging around with the same crew from back in the day? Why would you ask that? I don't know.
Y-You know, you two have a kid together.
I just like to think he's keeping himself out of trouble.
Okay, Junior, what is this? Why are you really here? All right, okay, Layla, listen to me.
All right, I need you to hear what I'm about to tell you, okay? There was a bank robbery this morning and I have reason to believe that Tory was involved.
(scoffs) God, you're unbelievable.
No, no, no.
All I Don't touch me.
All I need to know is where he was from 7:00 a.
to 9:00 this morning.
If you wanted to interrogate me about my boyfriend, you should've said so, instead of coming here and pretending you give a damn about me and my kid.
No, no, no, Layla, I care about you, okay? That's why I'm here.
Because I don't want HPD busting through those doors, tearing this place apart, while your baby is in the room.
Oh, this is, this is you doing me a favor? Layla, he used to run with a bad crew, okay? He has a record.
People change, Junior.
You, more than anyone, should know that.
(Kai crying) Do you want to know where he was this morning? He was at work, providing for his family.
Let yourself out.
I was able to use cell tower data to triangulate the last position of the callers.
Now within an hour of the bank heist, one burner pinged a tower within a mile from the bank.
This clearly belonged to one of the crew members that hit the bank.
And Milo's pinged where we'd expect it, within the vicinity of the house where he was holding Carl's wife hostage.
And then this third number pinged a tower downtown.
There's your criminal mastermind.
That's the guy who planned it.
Stan to reason he would be not involved and at some other location just sitting by the phone waiting for a call telling him how the job went.
That's what I was thinking, 'cause at 8:41, seven minutes after the crew fled the bank, they called the number downtown.
The number downtown then called Milo.
And immediately thereafter, all three were turned off.
We checked in with the HDOT's Harbor Division.
There's an alert out, but so far no suspicious activity.
Uh, if they're using the harbors, they're gone.
I mean, I agree with you, but we got to work with the leads we got, right? So this last spot where the phones were last used and turned off, I'm thinking there's a good chance that's where they were dumped, maybe even the truck, too.
So why don't we get down to HPD, have them send all available units down there, search the area.
In the meantime, let's follow the harbor lead, all right? Okay.
Oh, hey, Tani Rey.
Where's Junior? Um, yeah, I think he's just following up with a lead from one of the witness interviews.
He should be back soon.
Brief him when you see him, please.
Yeah, I will.
Thank you.
(phone dialing) (phone ringing) JUNIOR (on recording): You've reached Officer Junior Reigns (bell dings) (clears throat) JUNIOR: Mind if I join? Junior.
Howzit? I know you robbed the bank this morning.
Here I thought this was gonna be a nice catch-up conversation.
Let me take you in, and if you cooperate I can help you.
If you don't, this won't end well.
It was good seeing you, Junior.
(sighs) FEMALE REPORTER (on TV): Authorities have yet to release the names of the two victims, but they are believed to be a bank employee and a driver for the armored truck company that services the bank.
No word on whether this robbery is connected to the one last week (knocking at door) at Union Liberty Bank in Honolulu.
OWEN (muffled): Wait till Bob hears about this, Nick.
You shouldn't have killed him.
NICK: Bob's not gonna do anything.
You were real cute, Nicky.
Will you quit bitching? Okay, I did what I had to do.
It was a clean score until you went psycho and started killing people.
- We got the money, didn't we?! - And a load of unnecessary heat! BOB: Hey, hey! Both of you, knock it off.
I agreed to rob a bank, not do time as an accessory to murder.
Who said we're doing time? (scoffs) You need to chill.
- Did you take care of the truck? - Yeah, torched it, along with the uniforms and phones.
Well, then, it's not all bad, is it? Hmm? Hold on.
Where's Milo? Milo isn't here.
(sighs) Everything changed when you went off book.
We didn't plan on leaving witnesses, so I had to send Milo to take care of the wife.
Got it.
But how long's it take to put a bullet in her head? TORY: He's got a point.
What if the reason that Milo isn't here is because the cops got him? (chuckles) Lookit, you let me worry about Milo.
Take these new burners go back to work.
Or go wherever you degenerates go when you waste your time.
The point is, stay out of trouble.
Lay low, all right? Until I call you on these new burners and set up a meet, where we can divvy up everything.
You got it? Yeah.
You sure we can trust you to do the accounting on this one? What did you just say? I'm just joking, Bob.
I trust you.
I trust you.
Besides I know where you live.
NICK: Let's go, boys.
Guess it isn't good news, then.
Milo's dead.
A guy I know in the department confirmed it.
But it's not all bad news.
We're better off with him dead than in custody.
And everybody's take just went up.
Stash this away somewhere safe.
Don't be flashing the cash around.
The cops are watching.
And understand, if one of us goes down, we all go down.
Huh? (trunk shuts) And listen.
The hard part's behind us, so don't do anything stupid, and we'll get away from this free.
Yeah, about that.
I think we have a problem.
(camera shutter clicking) I'm sorry, I should have brought this to you sooner.
Yeah, you should have.
You know, after everything you done for me, I It kills me to think that I let you down.
But when it comes to Layla, there is nothing in this world that I wouldn't do to protect her.
Well, Junior, here's the thing.
We've all got our blind spots.
All right? The trick is making sure you identify them, and don't let them cloud your decision-making process.
That's it.
I got something for you guys to see.
Remember that cell phone that pinged right after the heist? The one that we assumed belonged to whoever was planning the whole thing? Yeah.
Well, I took a closer look at the area that it was last active, and check this out.
Appears we've been looking for the wrong kind of harbor.
(door opens) Hey.
Got some pictures for you to look at.
You recognize those guys? Yeah, I recognize these guys.
They were here earlier today.
Uh, room 381.
Old dude rented it out for the day, paid cash.
Didn't you find it a little bit odd that five grown men would rent out a single motel room for the day? Mm-mm.
Hey, man, we get all kinds of crazy here.
Stopped asking questions about two weeks into this job.
All right, we're gonna need to see that room.
No problem.
Housekeeping just finished up in there, but it hasn't been rented out yet.
So what's the plan? Maybe get a CSU team down here, have them sweep the room to get about a thousand prints from a thousand different people, many of whom will come back with criminal records due to the general scumbaggery that goes on in this establishment? No offense.
None taken.
You still got the key card the old guy turned in on checkout? JUNIOR: So, the print from the key card came back, and we have an ID.
The last person to rent the room was a Robert Castor, and-- surprise, surprise-- he worked as an armored truck driver for Honolulu Armored Services.
He was printed as part of his security check.
Here's another fun fact about Castor: he himself used to handle the pickups at Bank of Oahu and Union Liberty.
Those robberies are connected.
Starts out small, just hitting up the tellers at Union Liberty, and then he graduates to robbing the vault at Bank of Oahu.
Uses his inside knowledge to put together the plan, then hires a crew to do the heavy lifting.
JUNIOR: There's more.
According to employment records, Castor retired six months ago, but due to some contested disciplinary action, he was stripped of his pension.
There's your motive.
We have a BOLO out on Castor and his vehicle? TANI: Even better.
HPD's at his house.
Just picked him up.
(phone beeping) They're bringing him in.
We'll see you soon.
What is that? Just got a text from Layla.
"Joon, I need to talk to you.
Meet me at Thomas Square Park by the fountain, 30 minutes.
" STEVE: Mr.
We both agree that you seem like a brass tacks kind of guy, so we figured we'd just get straight down to business, all right? We know that you helped plan the Union Liberty Bank heist last week.
We also know that you were part of the Bank of Oahu heist.
that left two people dead.
Those are both on your old, uh, armored truck route, right? (groans softly) You know, old-school guys, they never talk.
STEVE: Unless, of course, they know that we have evidence that puts them dead to rights.
And then they usually figure out it's in their best interest to cooperate with us.
I don't think he knows that we have his money yet.
We got your money.
I probably should've opened with that, right? See, HPD, they tore your place apart.
They didn't find your money, but they did find the key to a very large safety-deposit box registered over at Certified National Bank.
That was a safe play.
I'll tell you what else is a safe play.
You coming to the table first.
Now, why don't you give us your crew before they come in and flip on you? (chuckles) I'm sorry, is something funny? You two, you think you got it all figured out, don't you? Huh? You don't get to be my age without learning a thing or two.
And one thing I do know is overconfidence always sinks the ship.
(chuckles) (soft clack nearby) I'm sorry, Junior.
(Kai crying in other room) I'll get him.
All right, I'm coming, I'm coming.
(laughs) (continues crying) (softly): Hey.
What's wrong, huh? Come here.
(stops crying) Come here.
You all right? (Kai fussing) (groans) Think he's hungry.
(crying loudly) Hey Come on.
Baby, no.
Come on, Kai.
Oh, no.
Mm - I have to go to work.
- Okay, babe.
Hey, uh, come.
Come here Have a good day.
I love you.
I'm so proud of you.
(crying) Oh.
Okay, here we go-- time to eat.
(crying) (stops crying) Remember who you're doing this for.
You got a family to think about.
If we go down for this, you're looking at 20 minimum.
You think they're gonna wait around for you to get out? Mm-mm.
(cocks pistol) Find out exactly what the cops know.
Then kill him.
All right, Tory, it's over.
We know about Nick, Owen and Kalino.
They're going away, and so are you.
Castor made a deal, but you can still save yourself.
Let me take you in.
If you cooperate, I can get you a deal.
No, you're lying.
You're saying what you think you need to say so I don't kill you.
(person whistles) See, you almost had me.
But you made one mistake.
Layla never calls me Joon.
We need to bail, now.
If they take him in, he's gonna roll on us.
You ain't no killer.
So Tory, put that gun down, let's talk.
That's-that's it.
Put it down.
That's it.
Hold your fire! Hold your fire! (tires screeching) (bullets ricocheting) (whistles) TANI: Junior.
We're good here.
HPD's on the way.
Where are you? I'm right on him.
I got this.
(siren wailing in distance) (grunts) Put the weapon down.
(panting) I can't go back to jail, man.
I can't do that kind of time.
I can't Okay, Tory, listen.
If you're not gonna do it for yourself, then think about Kai.
All right? Think about Layla.
They're all I ever think about! What I did, man I did for them.
And I know that.
All right, Tory? And they're gonna know that.
And you'll get to see your son again.
And Layla's gonna forgive you.
Kai is gonna forgive you.
(crying): I can't live in a cage, man.
I can't let my little boy see me live in a cage.
Put the gun down.
(sirens wailing in distance) Tory, put the weapon down.
Tory? No No.
No, don't you even think about that.
It's the only way, man.
No, brother, come on.
Put the gun down.
No, no, no, no, no! (echoes): I'm so proud of you.
No! Okay.
I'm right here, buddy.
I'm right here.
Come on-- help! Get an ambulance right now! Move! (panting): Tory.
Tory, come on.
Stay with me, buddy! (crying): No! No! We got a 10-71.
I'm sorry, man.
I'm sorry.
TANI: Joons.
You know it's not your fault, right? There's absolutely nothing you could've done that would've changed the result.
You know, when I left for Iraq, it was only supposed to be for one tour.
You know, I was just supposed to go get experience and qualify for GI benefits and then come straight back home and then I marry Layla.
That was the plan.
Until the plan changed.
What happened? After my first tour, they asked me to re-up, and I, uh, I didn't hesitate.
Yeah, I mean, you, you were doing what you loved to do.
Meanwhile, the person that I loved was waiting on the other side of the world, for me.
In my head, I just thought, you know, we'd just pressed pause.
You know, all the time I was away, I never questioned us, not for one second.
You know, I thought that we would just pick up from exactly where I left off.
For her, that wait was hard.
She was alone, and she grew sick of waiting for me, feeling second best to my life as a SEAL.
And then then she met Tory.
You know, and he-he was there.
You know? H-He was around.
I wasn't.
She ended it with a letter, you know? She wrote it to me and she told me it was over.
Seven and a half thousand miles away, sitting underneath a wall in a compound in Tagab, and there was nothing I could do.
When I came home and I found out she was having Tory's baby, oh (chuckles) Ugh You know, I I knew it'd be selfish of me to fight for her.
Joons, I'm so sorry.
No You know, Tani, I've made some mistakes in my life, but losing Layla, or, uh, pushing her away, that was So when you say, uh, there's nothing different that I could have done yeah, I tend to disagree.
(door opens) (sniffling) (door closes)
