The Mighty Duo, plus Cath go to Gil Scates apartment. He’s not there but there’s a bunch of boating magazines. He has unpaid utility bills so our The Mighty Duo, plus Cath, conclude he couldn’t afford a boat so then maybe he was planning on stealing one and this was all his research. Chin, also assumes that McGarrett Danger Magnet and his BFFITWWW stumbled across the perp in the act.
Coast Guard to the Rescue! Hi Coast Guard! Love you! Not Chris the Coast Guard guy boards the Katie and arrests Steve and Danny once the dead body is found below deck.
On the Coast Guard boat Steve and Danny are sitting next to each other. Scott’s feet don’t reach the floor and Alex’s legs are massive. I bet he eats 10 Weet bixs every morning. How many do you do?
More bromance ensures and I wonder if they just told Alex and Scott the basics of what needed to be said and then went, have at it. Coast Guard Captain McIlvane after having reached one of the other members of Five-0 apologises for arresting Steve and Danny and the handcuffs are removed and fans the world over sigh. We learn that the case is being handed over to Five-0.
When the boys return to the harbour Cath and Chin are waiting for them. Cath and Steve smile and give each other a hug. Cath was obviously worried about her SEAL, but everyone is ok now. Though Danny is still fretting, I reckon Steve would have swum them back all the way to shore no worries….. Max, ever the considerate one, offers Danny some cream for his sunburn and Danny looks at him like he is a time travelling comic book lover, oh wait, wrong show.
Over-clothed Max, barefoot Steve and one extra button undone Danno go over the crime scene. Chin brings his oddly clothed co-workers up to speed on the case, where it is suspected our not criminal mastermind, Gil Scates not only killered Al Burgess dead but tried to steal his boat, but he couldn’t even get that right and abandoned ship.
Kono goes to talk to the victim’s family, his wife, Katie Burgess and his sister, Jenny Burgess (aka that chick who was an angel in Supernatural). Katie explains she called the Coast Guard after not hearing from her husband for some time. Wifey and sister do not like each other. That much is obvious. Much awkwardness ensures. Kono shows Katie a photo of Gil Scates and she recognises him as a security guard who moonlights as a peeping tom. Gil Scates was fired for being a creeping creep who creeps. The theory is floated that Gil did this out of revenge.
Kono and Chin are out front of Gil’s apartment block. We see that Chin is still mourning Malia and I think this is a nice inclusion by show. Chin asks how things are going with Adam, still not convinced. Don’t worry Chin, neither am I. Kono sulks off in an apparent search for coffee. Of course now our perp decides to walk by and a chase ensures. Chin yells out “Five-O! Freeze!” and I wait for the day when someone yells out “I don’t know what that is!” Today is not that day. Chin chases the guy up to the roof where guy promptly forces him over the edge. Let’s hope there is a magical moving balcony to catch him. Chin returns and Kono, The Penguin Killer (think about where litter ends up people) throws her coffee in the street when she realises Chin is missing. His badge drops down in front of her. Chin is dangling from the roof! Kono, gets into BAMF mode and takes down the perp, cuffing him to the handrail. She races upstairs and in the most unbelievable scene in the episode, lifts Chin up from the side of the building. Kono clearly eats more Weetbix than Steve. If this were the Olympics, she would be drug tested. Alas it is not, so we’ll assume it’s the Weetbix.
Gil Scates is in the blue room being questioned by the fishing buddies who are not buying his story. Chin phones in and I wonder how crime shows used to solve crimes without mobile phones. Did they just call from payphones? Anyway Chin explains the damage to the boat was intentional. Dun dun dun! Our victim was set up. By his wife! Kono fills in the fishing buddies and explains Gil was going to divorce Kate and leave her with nothing. The fishing buddies tell Gil that Katie was the one who tampered with the engine and knew that once Gil had murdered her husband, he would be left stranded about 40 miles (64 kms) South of O’ahu. Gil calls Katie pretending to be nervous that the cops are closing in on him. Katie tells him to man up and hangs up on him. In my head right now Foreigners, Cold as Ice is playing. Jenny, our victims sister, has overheard the conversation. The Five 0’s race to the house but are too late and shots are heard. Jenny has killed her sister in law. She surrenders and HPD make the arrest. Yay HPD!
