Catherine, having left the harbour meets with Kono at Headquarters, concerned that the boys are three hours over due. All Catherine knows is that Steve was taking Danny to a spot where and his dad used to fish. I love that Steve continues to share these places with Danny, even if the most disastrous things end up happening to them. Boulder to the Face anyone? Both cell phone signals are dead but as they took Chin’s Uncles boat, Chin explains they should be able to get a hit off the GPS on the boat. Chin works on Ess (aka the computer table) and finds out that the boat is docked at the North Shore.
The Mighty Duo, plus Cath race over there. Chin spots the Aigle de Me, which means Sea Eagle (McNerd moment 7895) and he and Catherine do some detecting and find the boys guns, badges and a bloody shirt. I think our bad guy gets very lucky here, because not only was the dock master out to lunch when he docked the boat BUT a lightening strike took out the cameras. Right now, in his grave Delano is yelling out “you gotta be frakking kidding me. Why didn’t the lightening strike take out the cameras when I needed them to?”
The Mighty Duo, plus Cath conclude that the boys are still out in the ocean…..
Steve doesn’t want to swim no more. His t-shirt says UTD/SEAL not servant. So now both the boys are paddling towards the Katie, an abandoned boat. Steve concludes the dinghy belongs to the boat, so the Boat Jacker ditched this boat for some unknown reason. Danny’s shirt is flailing in the wind, so too is Junk Kicker, who I know was alive at least half way through the ep because I have a text from her saying, “it’s still really good.” Our boys board the boat and see some blood that leads them into the cabin where they find a dead body. Even on their day off, they have to work.
Skipper McGarrett Danger Magnet tries to start the boat and radio for help, neither works. So Skipper McGarrett Danger Magnet becomes McFixIt Skipper McGarrett Danger Magnet and after 1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi, 3 Mississ…. Figures out the problem with the boat. Wow this handy man clearly doesn’t worry about getting paid by the hour. Steve, being the hard working fella that he is, puts his head down and starts working on the engine.
Fong tells our worried H50 ladies that the blood is not Steve’s or Danny’s. A finger print on the boat leads the team to find out that the print belongs to a recently sacked security guard by the name of Gil Scates.
McDirty is trying to fix the engine and he speaks Boat-lish and basically it’s complicated and he still hasn’t fixed it yet. So maybe this handy man does get paid by the hour. Danny has used the time to piece together what has happened on the boat and explains to Steve that he suspects the perp made a mess of killing his target (Al Burgess), couldn’t get the boat started, fled in the dinghy whereupon he eventually met up with Steve and Danny.
