The writers have cut loose and had a little fun with the set-up for this episode. After wrongfooting us into expecting a missing-child case, they lob in a surprise – a colourfully costumed man plummets to his death from the window of a high-rise hotel.
The deceased turns out to be a visitor to the Honolulu comic-book convention. The character he dressed as is Captain Fallout. Oof! That ID is made by spod-u-like forensics ace Max, who knows all his superheroes. Max, of course, is played by Masi Oka, whose last TV gig was the teleporting Hiro Nakamura in Heroes. Kazow!
The real meat to the story, however, is Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) being forced to hand over case files, relating to his father’s murder, to a CIA whippersnapper (Larisa Oleynik from The Secret World of Alex Mack). Her steely intransigence gets Steve’s goat and makes for some tense early scenes. And digging deeper brings Steve face to face with the killer.
The team tries to track down the person responsible for throwing a sci-fi fan dressed as his favourite superhero out of a 21st-storey window after feeding him truth serum. Meanwhile, McGarrett is introduced to CIA analyst Jenna Kaye, who shares his interest in finding the Yakuza who had his parents killed.
