A boys’ own set-up finds Steve and Danny hiking in the jungle only for the pair to stumble across a homicide victim. Pretty soon Steve gets hit in the face with a rock while abseiling and breaks his arm, but because he’s such a manly man he makes little fuss and immediately fashions a splint out of twigs.

Despite being stranded in the wilderness, the pair quickly make it back to HQ, thanks to some technical guff about co-ordinates being triangulated. And once the corpse is identified, the action shifts to Honolulu harbour where one boat’s catch of the day proves to be crystal meth. Yet before the investigation can take in any more of Hawaii’s picturesque locales, Chin Ho and Kono are told that their aunt’s health is failing, a turn of events that leads to the moment we’ve all been waiting for – Kono learning the truth about the scandal that ended her cousin’s career with the police department.
