Ron is really losing his cool now that he discovers the trail he took leads to a broken bridge. McG is getting ready to take him down with the rock, when they are disturbed by a hiker who appears to be a little suspicious of them. McG throws out a hint about where they’re heading, then Ron shoots the hiker who falls down a slope.
Ron gets the adrenalin rush he needed, and informs McG that next time, he’ll be the one Ron shoots.
Back at Five-0 HQ, Chin, after viewing the pictures of Kono at the airport snapped by Suspicious Dude, is giving Kono a lecture on the perils of hanging out with the bad boys when he gets a call from Danny. Little girl came through with MacGyvering the phones! Danny tells Chin and Kono what went down, and Kono organizes for a phone, a weapon and conservation officers to rescue the girls. Danny asks one of the COs to run Ron’s blood sample through CODIS.
There’s a tender little scene between Danny and Grace before he leaves in search of McG and Lucy. Madeline decides to accompany him, although he tries to discourage her. They banter back and forth for awhile about whether Danny knows which way is north (he’s not sure) and what he would do if he encountered a bear (‘there’s no bears, right?’) Madeline tells him not to slow her down.
McG, Ron and Lucy are still on their hike. McG tries to scare Ron by telling him about all the horrible infections he can get with a wound like his – most of which I can’t even pronounce, let alone spell. Let’s hope McG is not going to give Ron a tetanus shot. Not unless he gives himself another one first
While tracking Ron’s movements, Madeline tells Danny that Grace joined the Aloha Girls because she wanted to be brave like Danny, who is doing a brave little spider dance after Madeline tells him there is one on his neck.
Danny sees a bloody parachute in a tree, and deduces that this belonged to Ron, who most likely jumped from a plane about to crash. He contacts Kono, who confirms that there was a plane crash in the area, the pilot was killed, and the only other person on the plane, an armed guard - is missing. Along with a couple of million dollars worth of diamonds.
Charlie Fong ran the blood sample and got a hit on Ron Rathburn, AKA Ron Alberts, a small time crook.
Ron, McG and Lucy reach the place Ron is looking for and he tells them to locate a black backpack, which Lucy spies up in a tree. Ron orders McG to retrieve it, but Lucy is forced to scale the tree because that manly, muscular body will snap those branches like matchsticks.
While Ron gets excited that Lucy has the backpack, SuperSEAL finally makes an appearance and tackles Ron to the ground. McG tells Lucy to run while he’s wrestling with Ron, and manages to get Ron’s gun. While McG has the gun aimed at Ron, a shot rings out. Danny and Madeline, who are in the vicinity, hear it.
McG turns around to see a man holding a gun, with Lucy. He orders McG to toss the gun.
Danny and Madeline are still trying to locate McG and Lucy when they hear a cry for help. They find the hiker, shot earlier by Ron, who tells them that the others are heading for Api Falls trail, the hint thrown to him by McG. Madeline sends Danny north while she stays with the injured hiker.
Chin is at Api Falls trail head when he receives a call from Danny. HPD found a stolen car which was driven by Wilson Hines, a bank robber who did time with Ron. The plan was for him to be Ron’s ride out of the jungle after his jump from the plane. While Ron and Wilson are arguing, McG and Lucy prepare to escape. Wilson shoots Ron, and McG grabs Lucy and runs, with Wilson shooting at them.
Chin and Danny meet up over Ron’s body, unsure if McG or Wilson shot him. McG tells Lucy to hide, and he’ll come back for her later. Lucy hugs him and says she wants to stay with him. Smart girl.
He hides her amongst some foliage, and promises to come back and get her.
Wilson shoots at McG – Chin and Danny head off in the direction of the gun shots. Chin hears Lucy crying, gains her trust, and stays with her.
McG is chased by Wilson to a river, where he clocks McG in the face with the butt of his rifle before attempting to shoot him. Danny shoots Wilson.
