In this episode, a woman is holed up with her protector in an FBI safe house, ready to give evidence against a drugs lord that could send him down for good. But the bad guy has a long reach and before long she’s hurtling through the dense Hawaiian jungle, pursued by two would-be killers.

Which is where Steve McGarrett gets to show off his unnervingly accurate tracking skills. He can even “read” a fallen leaf, he’s that clever. Meanwhile, Danno is hot-headedly on the trail of the attackers. It’s all tremendously good fun, and the fact that it’s also superbly po-faced somehow just adds to Hawaii Five-O’s charm.
