Aloha ke kahi I ke kahi

Aloha, Malama Pono (Farewell and Take Care) is the 24th episode and season final of Season 3 in the remake version of Hawaii Five-0.


When a plane lands on Oahu with four bodies on board and a missing terrorist detainee, the CIA tasks Five-0 with finding him before he carries out an attack on U.S. soil. Meanwhile, Kono is on the run from the police for a murder she did not commit, and McGarrett's prison visit to Wo Fat ends with a shocking discovery.


Hawaii Five-0 investigates when five bodies are discovered on board a plane that was transporting Rafael Salgado, a member of the terrorist organization National Liberation Movement, who is missing.

His young son, who is living in Hawaii, is missing.

When Steve McGarrett and Danny Williams find Salgado, the man reveals that his son was kidnapped to prevent him from co-operating with the authorities to reveal the location of a planned terrorist attack in San Francisco and as such, in order to learn the target, Five-0 must rescue his son.

During the prisoner exchange, Hawaii Five-0 sweep in and save Salgado's young son. Although Salgado himself is mortally wounded, he tells Steve the location of the attack before he dies.

Meanwhile, Kono Kalakaua is on the run for a series of murders. She later hides in a house and discovers that Michael Noshimuri, the brother of her boyfriend, Adam Noshimuri, is the one framing her. Michael tries to kill Adam, but Adam shoots Michael fatally instead, with Adam being left grief-stricken and devastated.

As a result, Kono and Adam are forced to leave Hawaii as the Yakuza still want Adam dead for trying to leave.

Steve learns that his mother, Doris McGarrett, has been visiting Wo Fat, but while at the detention center, it is attacked, and Wo Fat wants Steve to save his life in exchange for revealing why Doris visited him, ending the episode in a cliffhanger.




Steve McGarrett: This morning, Salgado killed 5 men and kidnapped his son.
Wo Fat: I can't imagine what he has planned for the afternoon, I would love to join!

Trivia Edit

  • Continuity Error- After talking to Arturo Casey, Steve tells Danny that Casey gave Selgado a black 2010 Cadillac Escalade to drive. However, a few minutes later as Steve and Danny are going after Selgado, Catherine calls Steve and tells him "I've got your black [Chevrolet] Suburban". Then, when we see Selgado driving, he is clearly driving a black Escalade. So either Michelle Borth (Catherine Rollins) made a mistake and it was never caught, or the writers got confused when they were penning the script and wrote down 2 different car makes and models.
