Hawaii Five-0 s09e24 Episode Script

Hewa ka lima (The Hand Is at Fault)

1 STEVE: Previously on Hawaii Five-O DANNY: His hacker handle is "Toast.
" He's really a-a genius, 42 minutes of the day.
What about the rest of the time? - Baked like a potato.
- Uh-huh.
- Can I smoke in here, guys? BOTH: No.
Huh, look at that.
It's Toast.
Hey, yo, Toast, what's up, man? TOAST: Please! Please! Please! MAN: You're not talking much now, are you? Hey, hey, Jerry, listen, McGarrett is on a phone call from Toast (gunshots over phone) What if Wright stole that CI list the first time he breached the system? What, like an insurance policy? Exactly like an insurance policy.
Now we find ourselves with no other option but to go to Wright for help.
So you want me to figure out who accessed your server and smoked your CI.
His name was Toast.
- Unfortunately, now, he's - Toast? I'm sorry.
Was that too soon? You're the last person we wanted to see, but you breached our system successfully, which makes you the expert, you understand? - How much longer? - Won't be long now.
Excuse me, excuse me, excuse me.
Sorry, sorry, there Wait, wait, wait, could you hold it please? - Yes.
- Would you hit 16 for us? 16, sure.
You got it.
Thank you.
How you guys doing today? - Hello.
- Morning.
Java time.
Get it while it's hot.
Hey, hey.
There you are.
Thank you.
- Mmm.
- Cheers.
TIM: Drew, dude, why is it when it's your turn to pick up the coffee, it's always late? Because I'm a good person, Tim.
I take the time to talk to people, unlike you, who's a socially inept misanthrope.
(muffled gunshots) (man grunts) MAN: Sir, there are only four bodies here.
The guy from the elevator, where is he? [Hawaii Five-O theme song plays.]
Hawaii Five-O 9x24 Hewa ka lima (The Hand I   It's delicious.
Now try this one.
(sighs) Percy.
Okay, do you want my honest opinion? Yeah.
I don't taste a damn bit of difference between either one of these.
Am I missing something? I've been hearing about this place on the North Shore selling kouign-amann, not your average, run of the mill pastry.
So, this morning, I get one of the guys from the kitchen and run around there and pick up one for me.
You know, I want to check out my competition.
Turns out my competition is me.
Wait, so one of these is Yeah.
Oh, wow.
That's pretty good, then.
Must've figured out your recipe.
So by "figured out," you mean "ripped off"? That's cold, P.
All right, well, what do you want me to do about it? I've been robbed, Officer.
What you gonna do about it? All right, first of all, I'm a captain.
Whatever, man.
Look, second of all, Percy, copying somebody's recipe is dishonest, okay? I'd-I'd even go as far as to say it's-it's unethical, but illegal? Percy.
You'll have a hard time proving that.
You're my brother and I love you and I'd love to help you, but, um, I don't really think there's much I can do, and I'm late, okay? I got to go.
Call me later, call me later.
You know what? Fine.
That's fine, man.
Go on, get back to work.
Don't be mad.
Yeah? Well, it ain't like Five-O ain't got enough manpower to handle things for a couple of hours, especially today, when your brother needs you.
You gonna play the brother card now? Come on, Percy, I got to go to work.
And never mind all those times, man, when I stood up for you come - Oh, here we go.
- running home crying, (fake crying): "Percy, Percy, they're calling me names.
" - All right, all right.
- "Percy, they keep picking on me.
" I will, I will help you, okay? - Just saying, brah, I'm saying - But, look, all right, fine, we'll ride out there together, we'll talk to this guy and see if he'll be reasonable, okay? That's what I'm talking about, bro.
You walk in there, flash your badge, bust a few heads.
You ain't busting-- What? You know what I'm saying? They'll think twice about messing with my kouign-amann again.
- All right, slow your roll there, Death Wish.
These are bakers, not dope dealers, and we ain't on the South Side of Chicago anymore, okay? Now, I'll take you out there, and I told you we'd get this straightened out, but you listen to me: we're gonna do this, we're gonna do this my way.
You in or you out? - All right, that's cool.
- All right.
Hey, just know I got your back, big dog.
This is good.
This must be the other guy.
TANI: Listen, Troy, I'm flattered, um, but that was an undercover assignment.
It was a one-time thing.
I'm a cop.
I'm not a fitness instructor.
Totally get that, but people really love your class.
They keep asking when you're coming back.
Well, of course they did.
My Booty Boost routine is off the chains.
Well, if you ever want to make a little extra cash, hit me up.
(chuckles) Okay, yeah, thanks.
I'll keep that in mind.
Cortana, how long is it gonna take me to get to the office? CORTANA: Your office is 8.
7 miles.
Fastest route is the H-1 East.
Because of unusual traffic, it will take you 21 minutes.
Traffic sucks.
I wouldn't know.
I don't drive.
How many days till Christmas? There are 227 days until Christmas.
Don't tell Santa I've been naughty.
It will be our secret.
(cell phone ringing) Hey, Joons, what's up? JUNIOR: Yo, I just picked up some Cocoa Puffs.
If you don't get in soon, they're gonna be all gone.
Cocoa Puffs, wow.
This from a man who considers oatmeal an indulgence.
What's going on? I'm just stress eating.
Was up all night preparing for this hearing today.
How's the statement going? Uh, last count, I was on my 15th draft.
At this point, I'm just moving words around.
I'm sure whatever you're gonna say is gonna be powerful.
Yeah, let's just hope it's powerful enough to keep this guy behind bars.
Tani, I need to get this right for Maya and for my parents.
- You will, you will.
It's gonna be great.
I know it is.
And you're gonna have your mom and your dad there.
(doorbell rings) Hey, um, let's talk about this at work 'cause someone's at my door.
- Sounds good.
Okay, bye.
(phone beeps off) What the hell are you doing here? Just hear me out.
I don't hear well with a gun in my face.
- You were saying? - I need your help.
You've got to be kidding me.
I know how this looks, but I saved your life once, and I need you to return me the favor.
Let's be clear about one thing, I don't owe you anything.
Listen to me, a bunch of guys with guns just shot up my office.
- You have an office? That's not the key takeaway from that sentence.
The point is, I barely escaped with my life.
The other four people that I work with, they weren't so lucky.
- And the killers know that I saw their faces, and they're gonna hunt me down till they finish whatever it is they started.
Well, then we better get moving.
I think the safest place for you is behind bars.
I don't think you understand.
This is not about my safety.
This is about national security.
This is about the safety of everyone on this island.
AARON: Since our last tango, I spent the year seeing the world.
And I settled in Singapore, and life was pretty good.
I had a beautiful Dutch stewardess on my arm and a bar up the street that made the best Sling in the city.
And then my luck turned.
Marshals caught up with me, and I spent a few weeks in custody, but then the darnedest thing happened, my luck turned again.
Turns out, my skill set is highly valued by Uncle Sam, so he offered me a job in exchange for full immunity, of course.
And what's Uncle Sam got you doing? I presume you're not, uh, sweeping floors.
Working for the NSA in a covert station right here on Oahu.
Like hiring Jaws to be a lifeguard.
I'm a changed man.
I swear.
And don't you think I'd rather be in that office than rotting away in a cell? Now why don't you start by telling us what happened this morning? - Three gunmen came in and shot up the place.
It was it was brutal.
I only managed to slip away because I was in the kitchen when they showed up.
ADAM: Right, I'm assuming nobody called it in because no one knows this place even exists, is that right? STEVE: The NSA keep everything hidden, from the existence of their stations to the identity of their personnel.
And now their personnel are dead because of me.
JUNIOR: What are you talking about? It was my fault.
They came up to me in the lobby and asked me to hold the elevator.
I used my badge to give them access.
It's all my fault.
Don't flatter yourself.
Those hitters would've found their way up with or without your badge.
You think the NSA's gonna believe that? You know what this looks like.
They're gonna think that I was involved.
- That's why you came to us? - Yeah.
And I was hoping you guys could protect me from these psychos because I saw their faces and they saw mine.
STEVE: Yeah, they're gonna be coming for you.
All right, I'm gonna need you to give Junior here the address of where the NSA's been putting you up.
All right? We're gonna put a security detail on that place in case these hitters come looking for you.
ADAM: We'll also need you to provide us a description of them.
Had to see this for myself.
- I don't think we've met.
- Aaron Wri That was for a friend of mine.
I guess I deserve that.
Yeah, that's nowhere near what you deserve.
I knew what I was walking into when I came here.
I came anyway.
Because I'm not the only one in danger.
The NSA wasn't wasting my talents on some garden-variety listening post.
If you weren't listening, what were you doing? Committing acts of war.
Using cyber weapons to attack hostile countries.
Sabotaging missile programs, disrupting power grids.
We are conducting covert black-op campaigns against our enemies every single day.
And they're doing the exact same thing.
We are just much better at it.
Our tools of the trade are some of the most malicious code and cyber weaponry ever developed.
That's what worries me about a hit on that office.
So if the code gets in the wrong hands It could lead to world war.
Why should we believe you? Don't.
Go see for yourself.
(elevator dings) - Hey! - Drop your weapon! Drop your weapon, now! Five-O! FLORES: Stand down! Stand down, stand down.
Stand down.
All right, stand down.
I'm NSA Branch Chief Michael Flores.
Lieutenant Commander Steve McGarrett of the Five-O Task Force.
This is my partner, Officer Tani Rey.
You want to tell me what you're doing here, Commander? HPD got a call from the tenant in this building, said they heard shots fired.
Looks like they heard right.
You want to tell me what the hell's going on here, Branch Chief Michael Flores? I'm aware of the Five-O's standing on the island.
So, as a professional courtesy, I'm gonna fill you in.
This place is an NSA field office.
We got four victims, all intel analysts.
Based on the casings, we got multiple shooters, all of them well-trained.
We just don't know how many.
Now, security cameras were disabled in and outside the building in advance of the attack.
You guys got any idea why they'd choose to hit you here? Well, that's the thing.
This is just a standard listening station focused on gathering North Korea SIGINT.
We got a dozen of them throughout the Pacific.
So these guys were just unlucky, then.
Look, I'm sure you understand that, due to the sensitivity of this matter, my agency is now gonna take over this investigation.
You bet.
No problem.
Listen, uh, we're around.
You need anything, you just give us a call, all right? - Will do.
Oh, just one last thing before we head out.
You said there were four victims.
You sure there were no, uh, no survivors, no witnesses? That's right.
Just the four.
Copy that.
STEVE: The NSA lied to our face.
Meanwhile, I am telling the truth, so can you take these cuffs off, please? Yeah, not happening.
TANI: Not that we can take them at their word, but for what it's worth, they're saying the computers were wiped.
Hope that's true.
For all our sakes.
Well, the fact is, any number of foreign countries and rogue groups would want to hit this place.
Yeah, whoever it was, someone had to clue them in on the office's location.
So who knew about it? Aside from a few suits at the Pentagon and DOD, it was just the six of us at the station.
ADAM: Hang on.
Six? You said it was you and the four victims.
So who's the sixth? Our branch chief, Michael Flores.
That's the guy we just talked to.
Why wasn't he there this morning? AARON: Had a briefing at the FBI field office, said he'd be in late.
Well, that's convenient.
Either Agent Flores is one very lucky man Or he knew about the attack in advance.
STEVE: Okay, guys, we got eyes on Flores.
I think we're gonna go ask him.
(engine starts) (brakes screech) (tires screeching) Hands.
Keep them where I can see them.
Open the door.
Shut the door.
Turn around, put your hands on the vehicle.
Turn around.
There's that famous Five-O hospitality.
Oh, that's, uh, that's rich, coming from the person who just lied to us twice.
We know what was really going on at that station.
We also know Aaron Wright was working for you and that he got away.
- You got him? TANI: No.
- We were hoping that you did.
- Still looking for him.
All right, he's a tough guy to pin down, just like you.
What's that supposed to mean? Well, we did our homework.
You were supposed to be at an FBI field office this morning.
The security logs show that you were never there.
Got changed to the U.
District Court.
Why don't you check the logs? We will.
You got an explanation for everything, don't you? Why don't you do us a favor and explain this? That's a photograph of you and Colonel Farzin Shogredhi having lunch in Istanbul last month.
Why don't you tell me why you would be breaking bread with a high-ranking member of Iran's Revolutionary Guard? - It's curious, and given that your office targets Iran's missile programs, it's possibly treasonous.
Where'd you get that photo? From a buddy of mine at Langley.
Well, your buddy clearly wasn't read into this op.
The man in that photo, Colonel Shogredhi, is one of our most trusted double agents.
He's been working the American side for years now.
You understand, Commander? It's taken me five years to establish this station's global intelligence footprint.
Do you think that I want to see it destroyed? Or see what happened to my colleagues? McGarrett.
PUA (over phone): Commander, it's Officer Kai.
The officers sitting on Aaron Wright's place noticed a suspect attempting to break in.
When they engaged him, gunfire was exchanged.
One officer was hit.
He's in stable condition.
And the suspect? He's dead.
No ID on him, but CSU pulled a print.
Lab is running it now.
Results are back.
Our dead shooter's name is Adlan Rugova.
He's an international gun for hire wanted by authorities across Europe.
Let me guess, he came in under an alias.
ADAM: Correct.
And he didn't travel alone.
We checked CCTV at HNL arrivals and it seems Rugova was accompanied by two other gentlemen.
Facial rec IDed them as Petra Salamov and Andre Malaj, Albanian nationals.
JERRY: Aaron here confirmed that these were the guys that hit the NSA station.
AARON: That's them, for sure.
No way I'm forgetting those faces.
Uh, let's get their names and their photographs out to all authorities, ports, airports.
Jerry, dig into this, see if you can find out who hired them.
- Copy that.
STEVE: Here's the good news.
I'm thinking these guys must still be on the island.
They're guns for hire, which means they don't get paid until the job is done.
And right now, their job is killing Aaron Wright.
Which is why we're gonna let them take a shot.
Wait, what? Sounds to me like you're bait.
STEVE: All right, here's the deal.
We have to find out who hired these hitters, which means we have to take at least one of them alive.
TANI: Okay, I thought the whole point was that we're using Wright as bait.
Where is he? He's in Rendition, safe and sound.
All you need is this: - Wright's phone.
- I'm the bait? You and Junior.
I'm gonna put you guys in a tactical, unmarked SUV.
Okay, so we're just gonna drive around and wait for them to get up on our location and start shooting at us? Exactly.
That's a great plan.
GROVER: All right, Steve, you know where to find me if you need me.
All right, take care, buddy.
Damn it.
Hey, yo, that didn't sound so good.
Everything okay? No, Percy, everything is not okay.
Listen, if you got to get back, man, it's all right.
- Nah, they We halfway there now.
T-They got enough people.
They're fine.
All right.
Let's just get this over with.
You know, why they got to steal your recipe? - Can't blame them for trying.
- What you mean? Kamekona's restaurant is doing pretty good.
- Is that right? - Yeah.
- Profits are going through the roof.
- Really? Yeah.
We packed, breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Oh, and I suppose that that's all due to your would-famous kouign-amann, then, huh? In part, yeah.
Makes sense.
Hey, you know something? Uh I'm thinking about making a move.
- Really? - Yeah.
- Open my own shop.
- Oh, that's good.
Good for you.
You play your cards right, I might let you get in on the ground floor.
Is that right? Yes, sir.
(laughs) Mm-hmm.
Yo, man, what are we doing? What are you doing, brah? Let me ask you a question, Percy.
Why is it that whenever you want to ask me for one thing, you do it by asking for something else? - Man, come on.
- Boy, I've been a cop for 30 years.
You think I don't know a load of bull when I smell one? Here I am, driving all the way to the North Shore chasing behind your "stolen recipe," when the truth is, all you want to do is soften me up to get me to invest in your new bakery.
You know, Percy, if you want me to invest in one of your harebrained schemes, why don't you just say, "Hey, Lou, I got a harebrained scheme.
You want to invest?" And then I'll say, "Hell no, Percy, and then we can just move on.
- Whoa, whoa, whoa! - Let's get one thing straight, little brother.
- What? - I don't need your help, brah.
- What? Besides, what the hell makes you think I would want you to have you as a partner? - You just pitched me this thing.
- It don't matter! If I ask you what time it is, you'd tell me how to build a watch.
You think that 'cause you've been a cop for 30 years, you know every damn thing, and I'm just an idiot with a harebrained scheme? Let me tell you something, L'il Percy.
Well, bring it, brah.
Bring it.
I apologize.
Yeah, well, you know what? You can kiss my black What did you say, brah? I mean it, Percy.
I was being a jerk.
I'm sorry.
You feeling okay, little brother? Shut up, fool.
(both laughing) You're so stupid.
- No, you stupid.
- Percy, I'm your brother.
- Yeah.
- I-I'm not one of these guys you deal with out in the streets back in Chicago.
Y-You ain't got to try to be slick when you want to ask me for something you need if you need it.
I love you, man.
And I love you, too, little brother.
So does that, uh, that mean you gonna come in Hell no, I'm not giving you any money, boy.
I said I love you, I didn't say I just lost my damn mind.
Are you crazy? (chuckles) Now, let's go get this pastry-stealing punk.
I feel like w-we're, like, gazelles at a watering hole.
Do you not watch, uh, nature documentaries? Like, there's always a gazelle at a watering hole, she's minding her own business, she's getting a sip of water, and then and a lion comes up and and eats her.
I feel like that.
That's basically us.
We're just driving around, waiting for some Euro assassins to, uh, start shooting at us.
Hmm? My parents won't be coming to the parole hearing today.
- What? - I meant to tell you before, but there was always a plan for me to go on my own.
The truth is, my dad doesn't even know it's happening.
My mom found the notice in the mail, she just didn't tell him.
Yeah, we figured it was for the best.
So you have to go there and then make a statement on behalf of your family? It's-it's all on you? Mm-hmm.
That seems like a lot of pressure.
It's not the kind I'm used to, either.
Well, you're not going alone.
I'm coming with you.
No, no, you don't have to.
I know.
So we've been digging into everyone that worked in this NSA office, and it turns out taking highly skilled hackers and giving them NSA cyber tools can have unintended consequences.
One of our dead analysts, a Mr.
Tim Aquino, was running a side hustle, using his NSA resources to blackmail everyday citizens.
- What kind of blackmail? - Standard stuff.
He was pulling texts and e-mails off of people's devices, threatening to reveal compromising photos, details of affairs, other illegal activities.
He'd get a few grand per shakedown, and then a couple of weeks ago, he hit pay dirt on something big because that's when he opened up an account in Zurich into which 325K were recently wired.
ADAM: We traced the wire and it came back to this guy.
Meet Alan Kinross, CEO of Cryolaris Technologies.
It's a medical device manufacturer based on Oahu.
Okay, so this CEO just paid a small fortune in blackmail.
I'm thinking it's probably not to cover up something salacious, like an affair.
- More like a corporate scandal.
Something that could take down a publicly traded company.
JERRY: Yeah, I tried digging deeper into Cryolaris, but I hit a wall.
It seems they installed some next level cyber security after the blackmail payment.
So Tim Aquino uncovers something about this company, and then threatens them.
The company makes a big payment, and now they don't want the information out there.
So they hire hitters to take out the NSA office and wipe all the drives.
STEVE: Yeah.
Burying the scandal for good.
All right, look, my instinct is we bring the CEO in and rake him over the coals, find out what he's hiding, but this guy looks like he'd be lawyered up and probably with the best, so we need some evidence before we go anywhere near him.
Jerry, we need to look under the hood of this company, and now.
I hear you, but their servers are air-gapped.
Accessing the data requires being physically on site, and I can handle that, but I can't do it while also hacking into their security so I can get in and navigate the building.
Sounds like you could use some help.
(sighs) Me and my big mouth.
(door buzzes) (latch clicks) Uh-oh.
Did you come here to lay me out again, Slugger? Sadly, no.
I'm here because we have to work together.
Hi, there.
Ron Janderman, Oahu HVAC Repair.
Here for a service call.
Janderman Janderman (computer beeps) Don't have you here.
Can I see some ID? JERRY (over comms): Please don't tell me I went to the wrong address again.
STEVE: Stop messing around and do your job.
My boss is gonna have my ass.
STEVE: You're good to go.
Hey, will you do a guy a solid and just check one more time, please? There you are.
Must've missed it.
Elevator Four will take you down to the basement.
Sorry, big guy.
Had to make him sweat a little, am I right? STEVE: Let me tell you something, you pull another stunt like that, you're leaving this van in a bag.
AARON: Copy that.
Hold up, Jer.
You can step off that elevator in three two one.
All clear.
Now we are the only ones that can see the live feed.
Chop, chop.
Don't go left, don't right, go straight through the double doors.
We got a problem.
There's a biometric palm scanner.
This was supposed to be a super-hackable RFID badge reader.
Looks like you could use a hand.
Come on, that was solid.
Make it work.
- Less talking, more helping.
AARON: Relax.
This is gonna be easy like a Sunday morning.
Why? Wh-- Just stop talking.
(chuckles) (latch clicks) I spent a few weeks hacking palm scan access ATMs in Japan.
Paid for my whole trip.
And then some.
All right, Jerry, how you doing in there? 65%, almost there.
All right, Steve, check it.
Oh, oh, oh, Jerry, Jerry, you got company, you got a bogey.
A security guard headed towards the server room.
- I need more time.
- Do something.
What, do you think I'm back here playing Fortnite? (latch clicks) (cell phone ringing) Hello? (pinched voice): Mr.
Anahi, this is Ed LaFontaine of lead counsel in HR Legal.
Uh, we need to speak to you about a conduct complaint our office received.
Seems some very serious allegations have been levied against you.
You need to come up to floor seven immediately.
Of course.
I'll be right there.
- What do you say, pal? - I'm not your pal, but thanks.
- Journey of a thousand miles begins with a baby step, so I'll take it.
He's good at what he does.
I'll give him that.
Yeah, but the face, the face is-is so punchable.
(chuckles) Yeah.
STEVE: That's a mountain of data you got there, Jer.
How are you gonna find a needle in that haystack? Split the haystacks.
I'm digging into finances.
AARON: And I'm on legal searching for keywords like "exposure," "non-disclosure," and "settlement.
" Oh, speaking of settlement, I found a bunch of payments, big ones, all clustered between May and October of 2017.
AARON: Narrowing my search of that timeframe.
Oh, my, my.
Let me see that.
Yeah, this is bad.
Two years ago, Cryolaris developed a cutting-edge new anesthesia machine.
Only problem was the three people it killed during R&D.
STEVE: Three people killed? With those numbers, there's no way this machine goes to market.
Yeah, and yet, it did.
And quite the market it's been.
They cleared half a billion on this device alone.
ADAM: They do the math and decide it's cheaper to pay out settlements than fix the product flaw that's killing people? This information got out, we're talking a Class I FDA recall, millions in payouts and penalties.
Yeah, not to mention criminal negligence charges for the top brass.
All right, sounds like there's a whole bunch of people that need to be rounded up, starting with the CEO.
Adam, call HPD.
Have them lend a hand with the arrests.
(phone ringing) Jerry, reach out to the FDA.
We got to get this machine off the market before it kills somebody else.
You want to task me to do something? (phone beeps) I do.
Stop talking.
- Junior, what's good? JUNIOR: Hey, looks like the hitters took the bait.
We just picked up a tail.
Where you at? Heading east on Kanealii.
- We're passing Star Road.
- All right, here we go.
They're making an approach.
(tires squealing) All right, I got eyes on them.
Yep, it's our hitters.
Okay, hold on.
(tires screeching) (horn honks) (siren wailing) - We're in pursuit.
- Don't lose them.
I'm on the way.
(horn honking) (horns honking) (siren wailing) (tires screeching) (grunts)   RPG incoming, one o'clock! (RPG fires) TANI: Hang on! (Junior grunts) (high-pitched ringing) (grunts) Tani, you okay? Yeah.
(gunfire) (both grunting) (grunts) (cries out) Told you my plan would work.
Yeah, like a charm.
(door buzzes) (latch clicks) Mr.
Kinross, how you doing? I'm Commander Steve McGarrett, this is Jerry Ortega.
Thank you for the names.
Now I know who to sue.
You're welcome.
Spoken like a true corporate scumbag.
So, an hour ago, I, uh, I personally pulled this phone off of a dead assassin.
What's that got to do with me? Well Well, you see, this phone gave me access to the dead guy's overseas bank accounts, one of which shows a large payment from you.
I don't know what you're talking about.
That's fine.
I'm gonna break it down for you, all right? In this phone, there is evidence of you personally sending a wire transfer of $325,000 to Tim Aquino.
Tim Aquino is the NSA agent who blackmailed you and your company.
You remember? JERRY: We know about the devices you were selling.
Remember? The highly profitable ones that saved lives but also occasionally killed people? STEVE: But what we didn't know was that your company has a secret little slush fund.
A slush fund that you used to hire a bunch of paid gunmen to kill Tim Aquino and three of his colleagues.
(chuckles): Wait, wait, wait.
What? That's right.
Right here.
We got you tied to blackmail and murder.
Basically, dude, you're in deep.
I want my lawyer.
Probably not the worst idea.
So what's next for Mr.
Wright? Same as before.
He can continue to working for the government, or go to jail.
- Hmm.
Decisions, decisions.
You're back on my radar.
You mess up one more time, I'm gonna make sure you're out of a job and back in prison.
Are we clear? I'll be a good boy, I promise.
Put 'er there, partner.
Really? I thought we had made some progress.
I'm not decking you again.
That's progress.
Well, it's been a pleasure working with you.
All of you.
(chuckles) Look at me, I'm getting teary-eyed.
In fact, are you guys sure you don't have a spot for me on your roster? I feel like you guys could use my help.
I'm sure you pay better than the NSA, too.
It's like peanuts over there.
That's enough, let's go.
I'm just saying, there's a reason why Tim Aquino needed that extra 325K.
(sighs) Hey, Jer I meant to tell you this morning: that was a hell of a right cross.
Yeah, I agree.
I'm just jealous I didn't get in one of my own.
Man, this thing is the meaning of life.
(chuckles) My compliments to the chef.
Thank you.
They're flying off the shelves, that's for sure.
They damn well should be.
And priced right, too.
You ain't slick.
One for every day of the year, right? (laughter) And all these things, you-you bake right here, in-house? - Mm-hmm.
Since 1968.
My mother opened the place.
All the recipes are hers.
GROVER: Is that right? Well, I'll tell you what, this thing here I've never even heard of it.
This, this, uh, koogan, kween-uh Kouign-amann.
Huh? (chuckles) It's called kouign-amann.
The pastry originated in Northern France.
My parents tried it on their honeymoon.
PERCY: Your parents didn't eat no damn kouign-amann in France or no other damn place.
That's my recipe, and you stole it.
I don't know what you're talking about.
Oh, I think you do.
And you'd better cop to it before my brother goes all "Hulk smash" up in here.
All right, relax.
You got me, okay? It's not a family recipe.
'Course it's not a family recipe, 'cause your thieving ass stole it from me.
- All right, Percy.
DANIEL: I didn't steal anything.
You did.
I swear.
No-- we bake everything else here.
But these, we buy wholesale.
Wait, what? Wholesale? Exactly who are you buying these things wholesale from? Yeah.
GROVER: You know, I'm really disappointed in you, Flippa.
I mean, you're the last person in the world I thought would do something like this.
Explain yourself.
Ever since my food truck burned down, I've been trying to reopen a new business.
Kamekona mentioned your baked goods being the "toast of the restaurant.
" So I've been testing the market, seeing what kind of appetite there is for the best pastries I ever tasted.
Turns out, sky's the limit.
So, let me get this right.
My hard work becomes your side hustle.
How is that fair to me, man? You're not hearing me.
I want us to start a wholesale business.
Was planning on talking to you next week after I crunched the numbers.
PERCY: What? (chuckles) Man, I-I don't know what to say, man.
Say yes.
We partner up, split the profits 70-30.
No, no, no.
I think you mispronounced 50-50.
Bruddah, I'll be putting up the capital, taking all the risk; ergo, I take more of the profit.
All right, first of all, who said you putting up all the capital? Count me in.
Grover brothers in for half.
That works.
Lou, you'd do that for me, man? Didn't you hear him say sky's the limit? I'm doing it for me.
But yeah.
That's what brothers do.
I love you, brother.
Eh, I love you, too.
(chuckles): Yeah.
Next time, ask.
- All right, sorry.
- Come on, bring it in.
Thank you, thank you.
(laughs) Hey, you guys, you guys are so Yeah, yeah.
Mm-hmm Okay, okay, (door buzzes) CHAIRPERSON: The Hawaii Paroling Authority will now hear the case for early release of inmate Palani Kuewa.
Inmate has served six years of his first-degree negligent homicide conviction.
The board has reviewed the inmate's parole plan and recognize Mr.
Kuewa's completion of IOP substance abuse treatment in addition to his involvement in community outreach programs during his incarceration.
Kuewa, I understand you'd like to say something? On the night of August 5, 2012, I made a mistake.
I had a few too many drinks, and I got behind the wheel of a car.
People do it all the time, but the difference is, because of me, a young woman died, and several more lives were ruined.
There's nothing I can do or say that'll change that.
This system is supposed to be about justice, but if there were any real justice in this world, Maya Reigns would still be alive, and I'd be in her place.
All I can tell you is this: whatever the board decides today, it won't change what I do with the rest of my life, which is to continue the work I started in prison, educating people and doing everything I can to make sure that no one makes the same terrible mistake I did.
But as for forgiveness? I would never think to ask your family for that, because I know I will never forgive myself.
CHAIRPERSON: The board will now hear a statement from the immediate family of the victim, Maya Reigns.
(exhales) My name is Junior Reigns.
Maya was my sister.
I'm here on behalf of my family to argue for parole to be denied.
See, in my line of work, I see the worst kind of people.
People beyond reform, beyond forgiveness.
But this man that I just heard, he's not that.
You know, I came here thinking that he needed to pay for what he did, for what he took.
But honestly, I wouldn't even know what that price would look like.
What I do know is that the hate that I've carried towards this man has cost me way too much.
It's blocked out my good memories of Maya.
And I-I'm afraid that some of them are gone for good.
I don't want to give hate that power anymore.
I want to remember my sister for the joy that she brought to this world, and not for what happened that one day.
I owe her that much.
And I know what Maya would want me to do today.
Thank you.
(exhales) I really think you did the right thing.
I hope my dad sees it that way.
(wind whooshing) We got a problem.
Whoa, whoa.
Slow down.
Slow down.
What's going on? When Wright was leaving, he mentioned the 325K that Kinross paid to Aquino.
The thing is, he was down in Rendition when I discovered that wire transfer.
So how did he know the exact amount? Here's how.
He was aware of Tim Aquino's blackmail scam, and he used that to play us.
- Wait.
What? - I looked into the payment made to the hitters.
It originated overseas and then was rerouted through dozens of anonymous IP addresses to make it look like it came from Cryolaris, when it actually came from Aaron Wright.
We got to call Flores.
Wright knows the tech in that NSA station is worth millions, so he hires a team to pull it off the drives, wipe them, then takes out the entire (line ringing) office for good measure.
Yeah, and he gets away with it by pinning it all on Cryolaris and making himself look like a victim.
Son of a bitch.
This is Agent Flores.
Hey, this is Steve McGarrett.
I'm on speaker? No.
All right, keep it that way.
Listen to me very carefully.
Don't react.
Wright set this whole thing up.
It was his play from the beginning.
(gunshot, groans) (tires screeching) Flores, talk to me!
