1 Who are you? The hell is this about?! Beth.
Beth! What the hell do you want from us? Good evening Detective Katsumoto.
We don't wish to harm you or your ex-wife.
In fact, we need you alive because we have a problem and you're the only man on the island who can fix it.
And you will fix it.
Because if you don't Beth will die.
And every minute, it starts ♪ Over again ♪ Do-do, do, do, do, knocking ♪ At your door ♪ The world outside is waiting for you ♪ Knocking at your door ♪ But you never know nothing if you never did.
♪ Juliet, do you want a romantic relationship with Magnum? No, there's so much at stake.
There's a lot to risk, but it's better than the alternative.
Which is what? Saying no to what you really want.
- Higgins.
- Hi.
Um Sorry if I'm intruding.
I did knock, though.
Yeah, but you knocked and entered.
Uh, normally, you knock and wait for a response.
Well, yes, but some people use knocking as, like, a heads-up.
Anyway Sorry.
I should have waited for a response.
It's fine.
Uh, what's up? Is now a good time? A good time for what? Just in general.
Are you okay? Me? I'm fine.
Do I not seem fine? You just don't seem like yourself.
Well the reason I came over is Well, I want to tell you something.
I just want to make sure that I-that I get it right.
- Okay.
- Thing is I've been doing a lot of thinking, and Thomas, have you seen my jacket? Oh.
Uh, Juliet, hi.
Um, I'm really sorry.
I-I didn't know that you had company.
W-W Yeah, I-I uh, offered to buy Thomas dinner after we finished the case, and we ended up here for a drink.
Several drinks, actually.
Not gonna lie, I am feeling a little hungover.
I figured, actually.
Excuse me for a second.
Higgins, do you want to talk privately? No, no, no.
It's fine.
Don't worry.
It's not important.
I We can talk about it later.
Bye, Lia.
It's good to see you.
Yeah, you too.
I know what it looks like, but nothing happened.
You know, the only reason why she spent the night is because she drank too much, and she couldn't drive, so I actually slept on the couch, so, like I said, nothing happened.
Yeah, but nobody's saying that anything did.
- Yeah, why you getting so defensive? - No, I'm not getting defensive, it's just that, when Higgins saw her, uh, she had this look.
It was-it was very subtle, but it was like she was disappointed.
And I didn't even do anything wrong.
All right, but you two broke up a while ago.
Maybe Higgy was just caught off-guard.
I don't think it was that.
You know what, I wouldn't sweat it.
I-I'd be thankful that you found out about Higgins and Cole before you said anything.
Sometimes, I wish I hadn't opened my mouth with Suzy.
It-it just makes things get weird.
Where's Gordie? His burrito's getting cold.
I don't know.
I texted him a while ago, and still no response.
Maybe he got something better to do.
All right, you're giving me some of that.
Get in there.
Sorry, Gordie, there's a statute of limitations on burritos, so, unfortunately, we split yours - three ways.
- I need to see you right away.
Well, uh I'm about ten minutes from HPD.
No, no.
No, no.
I'll drop you a pin.
Everything okay? Just get there as soon as you can.
Something wrong? I don't know.
Guess you got the same call I did.
Any idea what's going on? No.
Gordon did not sound happy.
Maybe you've done something wrong.
Uh, maybe you did something wrong.
Well, I guess we'll find out soon enough.
Hey, um about last night, I just want to say nothing happened.
- I'm sorry? - Between me and Lia.
I-I know what it looked like, and, uh, yeah, nothing happened.
You're an adult.
You don't have to explain yourself to me.
Yeah, I know.
It just seemed like you were bothered or I don't know.
Maybe not bothered, but something.
I was just surprised, is all.
Fair enough.
What did you want to talk about, anyway? Just, uh, tedious work stuff, which is why I said it could wait.
Thanks for coming.
Of course, Gordie.
What's up? Last night, Beth and I were both abducted.
- What? How did you escape? - I didn't.
They let me go.
But they still have Beth.
What do they want? They want me to go into Wahiawa Prison today and meet up with my old partner, Shane Whelan.
And then they want me to kill him.
I don't get it, if they wanted to kill somebody inside the prison, why wouldn't they enlist a prisoner? Well, that's assuming they could get to him.
Turns out Whelan's in protective custody.
Only a few guards and prison staff have access to him.
But, as a cop, you can request an interview.
The kidnappers instructed me to put in the request for this afternoon and then go into work and act normal.
They also said if I try to track them down or involve HPD, they'll know, and they'll kill Beth.
Any idea who would want Whelan dead? I imagine that's a long list.
Perhaps if we can figure that out, then we can work out who's leveraging you.
Yeah, I can pull his visitor logs, see who he's been talking to on the outside.
In the meantime, we'll see if we can retrace Beth's steps.
See if we can find out where she was taken.
We're gonna get Beth back.
Okay? His uncles took him to a Grizzlies game last night, and he's got family coming in from Knoxville to visit him today.
Sounds like Cade's having a great time.
Hey, you know what this means? You get more time to spend with Mahina, - right? Yeah.
- That sounds like a good idea.
Oh, that's me.
Hey, where are you right now? Uh, I'm with TC.
We're playing hooky.
We're at Bowls.
The waves are firing.
Yeah, well, we got some major waves over here, too.
My water just broke.
What do you mean your water just broke? You're not due for another couple weeks.
Tell that to the baby.
This thing wants out.
Tell that to the baby.
Tell the Baby-baby's coming.
Baby's coming.
TC, baby wants out.
It's go time.
TC, it's go time.
It's go time.
What do we-what do we do? What do we do? For starters, you can get your butt over here.
- Okay.
All right, TC's gonna drive.
- I'll-I'll drive.
- We're on our way.
- We're on our way.
We're on our way.
This was the last location of Beth's phone before it was powered off.
That's about a mile from her house.
Gordon mentioned that she sometimes jogs at night.
Maybe she was out for a run.
The kidnappers follow her, wait for their moment, and then grab her here.
Makes sense.
Residential area, no traffic cams, and then this entire side is a park.
Yeah, it's a total blind spot.
Well, maybe not.
What about this area? It's a community garden.
So? Well, a lot of them have security cameras.
What? - Produce theft is a serious problem.
- Oh.
Please tell me you have something.
We have security footage of Beth's abduction.
She was out for a run when two men grabbed her and threw her in the back of a van and took off.
The time code reads 9:47 p.
You get a plate off the van? Yes, but unfortunately, it was reported stolen this morning.
HPD plate readers spotted it in Kalihi Kai at 10:00 p.
last night, so we're thinking that's where they've taken her.
Well, we need to canvas the area, check vacant buildings, anywhere they may be holding her.
Yeah, trouble is, it's a huge area to cover.
Gordie, when you were on the livestream with Beth, what can you tell me about the room? Can you remember anything? Uh, the walls were cinderblock.
There were baker's racks in the background.
- Okay, I'll see what I can find.
- All right, I actually have something as well.
Seems Whelan recently had a visit from some lawyers in the Justice Department.
Well, if he was meeting with the Feds, he was probably trying - to cut a deal.
- Mm-hmm.
If he was about to roll on someone, that would explain the urgency to take him out.
Any idea who he might be giving up? No, and I'm due at Wahiawa at 2:00 p.
, which doesn't give us much time to find out.
Well, we may not have to.
I think I've got something.
There's an old baking plant on Middle Street.
It's currently not in use.
That could be where they're holding Beth.
In here! This is where they had Beth.
They must've moved her.
You broke the rules, Detective.
We warned you there would be consequences.
Okay, just wait a minute.
No! You son of a bitch! I'll kill you! I swear to God, I will hunt you down and kill you! Don't get angry at us, Detective.
This was on you.
Now, either do what we want, or the next one goes in her head.
Deadline is in less than two hours, Gordon.
We should consider informing HPD.
Look at what they just did.
I'm not gambling with Beth's life.
Listen, we can't take away their leverage, but maybe maybe we can get some of our own.
How? I have an idea, but you're not gonna like it.
You're okay, you're okay.
It's okay.
It's okay.
Oh, hey, if it isn't the uncle-to-be.
How's it going? Oh, really, Thomas? I'm having a baby here, and you're asking me for a favor? You're having a baby? I'm not having a baby.
I'm sorry.
I'm not having a baby.
Really? Yeah.
- You're having a baby.
- Uh-huh.
A uniform? It's kind of a big ask, pal.
Uh, yeah, no.
I-I can do it, no problem.
Uh, what's this for? You-you know what? Never mind.
I don't want to know.
I'm texting him now.
- Okay.
- I changed my mind.
- I want the epidural.
Please, please.
- Okay, we're gonna get you the epidural.
We're gonna get you the epidural.
I want the epidural, please.
- How we doing? - I want the epidural.
I need - Uh, I think we're saying yes to drugs.
- The epidural.
Yes to drugs.
Sorry about the arm.
Had to make a point.
Least now, your ex knows what he has to do.
I mean, the man couldn't save his own sister.
Now, certainly, he's not gonna let down the mother of his son.
He knows you, doesn't he? That's why the mask.
That's why you have me speak for you.
Well Generally, in a kidnapping case, a mask is pretty standard.
But, yeah, I know Gordon and Whelan.
They were a real problem for me a while back.
I thought I took care of it, but, you know Whelan can't keep his mouth shut.
Looking back, I should have just killed them both.
Comms check.
Heading in now.
You know, I don't think anyone's ever tried this before.
And with good reason.
Oh, you mean breaking into a prison? Probably right.
Open up the gate.
Okay, you want to take your first left.
The fastest route to the server is across the yard.
Okay, you want the entrance on the northeast side.
Give me more.
You got to keep going, bro.
Two more.
Uh, that might be a problem.
Just stay on the periphery.
You'll be fine.
No, it's not that.
There's an inmate here in the yard, and, uh, well I'm kind of the reason why he's here.
Just get to the door as quickly as you can, all right? Oh! Come on, Suzy, keep pushing, keep pushing.
I'm so proud of you.
You're doing so good.
- You're doing so good.
- I can't do it.
You can do it, you can do it.
Okay, Suzy, we just need one last big push.
- Come on, come on.
- Come on, come on.
- Push, push, push.
That's it.
- There you go.
That's it.
Come on, you got it.
Push, push, push.
That's it.
Oh, wow.
Meet your daughter.
Is she okay? Yeah, she's perfect.
Would dad like to cut the cord? Yeah, I would.
- Yeah.
- Come over here.
- Thank you.
- Here you go.
- Right here? Okay.
- Yeah, right there.
Little slippery.
Good job, Dad.
- Thanks.
- You're a father.
Oh, my God.
BP's dropping.
She's hemorrhaging.
What do you mean, she's hemorrhaging? - What happening? - She's losing blood, fast.
- Suzy.
- Run the IV wide open.
Let's get her some oxygen.
- Get him out of here.
- Suzy Hey, hey.
You okay? - Mr.
Wright, you need to come with me.
- What? What's happening? - Come on, Suzy, stay with me.
- Suzy.
What's going on? Call the rapid response team.
Come on, Suzy.
Stay with us, Suzy.
I'm in.
Magnum, Gordon's just arrived.
You better hurry.
Okay, you're looking for server A2-6147.
A2-6147 Okay.
We're in.
Now comes the hard part.
Magnum, you got a tail.
Looks like your friend from the yard has followed you inside.
It is you.
What, are you undercover on a case? Yeah.
Working with the warden, so don't say anything, all right? You do not want to get on this guy's bad side.
I'm losing four years of my life 'cause of you.
Hold on.
Uh, some might argue that, uh, you're losing four years of your life because you had a meth lab in your kitchen.
Magnum, behind you.
Three sugars.
You remembered.
I'm touched.
Nice of you to come all the way out here.
I really don't get visitors.
That's not what I hear.
In fact, you had two recently, and they traveled all the way from D.
Who are you about to roll on, Shane? Is that why you're here? What, you're hurt I didn't come to you first? Let you have the collar? I'm here because there's already been blowback.
Beth's been taken.
I just hope I'm not gonna end up in here for what I'm about to do.
What did you do, Gordie? What'd you put in here? Just something to help you sleep.
You're welcome.
What happened to the gurney? I had to call an audible.
The plan was I get a doctor's coat, we stick him on the gurney and catch an ambulance out of here.
Yeah, that was a great plan, that plan is dead.
- Now there's a new plan.
- Terrific.
You care to loop me in? - You don't trust me? - You don't have a plan, do you? Does getting out of here before the alarm goes off count? - No, it does not.
- Magnum, we have a problem.
One of the security guards has discovered your friends in the laundry room, and he's called it in.
The prison is about to go into lockdown.
How much time do we have? Come on.
On the ground! On the ground now! Two lines.
LL in the front, Trevors in the back.
Talk to me, Higgins.
I'm working on an exfil.
Hold your position whilst I distract the guards.
We're on lockdown.
My guys are mobilizing now.
Hey, Sarge, look at the doors on 1-A.
They're rolling back.
This is control center.
We have a code red - in cell block A.
- Get to A-block.
Move, move! Okay, all clear.
Make your way down the hallway and I'll start opening some doors.
What's the latest? She's still in surgery.
They can't stop the bleeding.
Where's Rick? Thought they kept this maternity ward locked up tight.
One of the nurses - is a distant cousin of mine.
- Mm.
She's beautiful.
I'm scared, Kumu.
I never been more scared in my life.
And I've seen some scary stuff, but this this is different.
Listen to me.
This little girl's mom is a strong woman.
She's a fighter who's struggled her entire life.
And she knows that there are people waiting out here who love her.
People who need her.
But it's out of our hands now.
You just look after your daughter.
That's the best thing you can do for Suzy right now.
Oh Gordon, what are you Where the hell are we? We're outside Schofield Barracks.
About two miles from the prison.
You Wait.
You broke me out? Why? It was either that or a bullet to the head.
The people who took Beth sent me in to kill you.
So, what, now you trade me for her? No, actually, we're going to use you as bait.
Tell us who we're up against.
Who were you about to screw over? Ray Nasano.
I'm guessing you know who he is.
Ray's a big player in the ice trade.
Shane and I tried to take him down a while back.
Chased him for a year.
Couldn't make anything stick.
But what could you possibly have on him now that we didn't have then? Thing is, I did have it.
I had it then.
I, uh, had some leverage on one of Ray's crew, I turned him.
He gave me the evidence we needed to bring Ray down.
Except Ray paid you off.
This happened right under my nose.
How'd I miss it? You were on emergency leave.
When Kim died.
That's your sister? Is it done? Change of plan.
And you can drop the theatrics, Ray.
I know it's you.
New terms.
I've got Whelan.
Say hi, Shane.
Here's how this is gonna work.
We meet, you get Whelan, Beth leaves with me.
You know, the cop I remember didn't have such a hard time following rules.
Again, the man who can bury you in exchange for Beth.
There's a quarry in Makakilo, at the end of Palehua Road.
Be there in one hour.
Just you and Whelan.
If I see anyone else anyone else well, you won't have to worry about spousal support anymore.
It's gonna be an ambush.
For them.
What do you see? Three gunmen.
Problem is, a minute ago, there were four of them, including Ray, who's now inside the car, which means there's one of them lying in wait somewhere.
Means they probably plan on taking you out as soon as they have Whelan.
Any idea where the fourth gunman could've taken up position? High ground, good cover.
Maybe here? Yeah.
Or there.
Gonna have to split up.
All right, you go in with Whelan, we'll converge on foot.
All right.
Watch yourselves, okay? Good luck.
You too.
There's something you deserve to know.
What? Back when we were going after Ray, we were closer than we even realized.
But Ray couldn't just kill us, it would've drawn too much attention.
And he knew you couldn't be bought, so he had to knock you off your game.
What are you saying? He saw to it that the heroin your sister O.
'd on was laced with fentanyl.
No, that's not possible.
The autopsy would've He paid the M.
to fake the results.
You're saying he murdered Kim because we were getting too close, and you knew this whole time.
I only found out after.
But you still kept it from me.
I had to keep my mouth shut, otherwise they would've killed my family.
Why are you telling me now? 'Cause there's a chance I'm not walking away from this.
And if I'm gonna meet my maker, I want to do it with a clear conscience.
Put away the gun.
Let me see Beth.
Let's not make this complicated.
We each hold our positions.
You send Beth, I send Whelan.
Drop the clip and put the gun on the ground.
Come on.
Get down and stay down.
Hey, pal.
I'd like to say it's nice to see you again, but it's not.
- Take cover! - Look out! - Yeah.
- Where's Gordie? He went after Ray.
Guess you finally got me, huh? Look at me.
Look at me! Gordie! He murdered Kim.
Laced the drugs with fentanyl.
But it's over.
We got him.
Lower the weapon.
Walk away, Magnum.
I can't do that.
And you can't do this.
Just leave, damn it! I'm not going anywhere.
If you want to pull that trigger, you go ahead.
I'll back up whatever version of the story you want to tell.
It's not gonna bring Kim back, though.
And if you do pull that trigger, it's only gonna end in more pain, you know that.
All right, you know that because you've been exactly where I'm standing right now.
Come on, Gordie.
Oh, you're gonna break a lot of hearts.
I've only known you less than an hour and you already have me wrapped around those tiny little fingers.
- Hi.
- Hey.
Aw, she's so beautiful.
You want to hold her? Yes.
Just be careful with her neck.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
She's so tiny.
What's her name? Um We haven't, uh We hadn't decided yet.
Uh We're waiting on, uh What do the doctors say? Uh, nothing yet.
I got to say, when Suzy shut me down, I regretted telling her how I felt about her, but now I'm glad she knows.
I'm sorry we couldn't be here earlier.
- Yeah.
- Well, there's nothing you could've done.
How's Beth? Yeah, she's all right.
And Katsumoto? He's got a lot of things to answer for.
I, uh, heard what happened today.
Are you okay? Beth is.
That's all that matters.
Lieutenant come down hard on you? Suspended indefinitely without pay, but they'll probably take my badge.
I'm so sorry, Gordon.
Hey, don't be.
I'm not.
I did what I had to.
It's all right.
Just take care of yourself, okay? Doc, how is she? You gave us all one hell of a scare.
How you feeling? I'm all right.
Just tired.
You should be.
You worked so hard.
Did so good.
Here she is.
Oh Thank you.
Let me see this girl.
What are you gonna call her? How about Joy? Joy Frankie.
For Icepick.
- That's perfect.
- Yeah.
- She's beautiful.
- He would really love this little girl.
- Look at that little face.
- Hello, Joy.
- Do you see your uncles? - Hello.
These will be your crazy uncles.
That's right.
Oh, God, you're a lovely little girl.
You all right? Uh, yeah.
Why'd you leave? Just suddenly got a bit overwhelmed.
Guess it's been an emotional day, you know? Yeah.
Yeah, it has.
Gordie's situation, Suzy and the baby.
It's a lot.
Actually, uh I'm lying.
I'm-I'm not all right.
Um There is something else.
So, when I came to talk to you today Mm-hmm.
It wasn't about work.
I wanted to tell you something.
And then I saw Lia there, and I just couldn't.
Well, now I know nothing happened, and, uh, I have to tell you, because it's it's just gonna haunt me otherwise.
So I came to tell you that I have, uh, feelings for you.
I tried to deny it, and I just can't anymore.
I bet this is just doing wonders for your ego.
No, no, it's it's not that.
Then what is it? When you were in the wine cellar yesterday, I wanted to spend the day with you because I wanted to say the same thing.
But you had plans with Cole and Wait, what? I have feelings for you.
I think I have for a while.
I just didn't know it.
I mean, of course, I have my reservations.
So do I.
I don't want to risk losing our friendship, o-our partnership, and maybe we shouldn't go there.
I think you're right.
We probably shouldn't.
