He Kāne Hewa'ole (An Innocent Man) is the 14th episode of Season 1 in the remake version of Hawaii Five-0.


Chin and Kono join HPD who are engaged in a high-speed chase but the chase ends in tragedy when the car crashes, resulting in the driver suffering injuries which later kill him. Kono and Chin soon make a grim discovery about the contents of the box that the driver was carrying, prompting the team to launch a full investigation.


Lieutenant Chin Ho Kelly and Officer Kono Kalakaua are out on a drive when a call comes in concerning a speeding driver.

With Kono at the wheel, she and Chin decide to join in.

The chase ends in tragedy, though when the car crashes, fatally wounding the driver while Chin makes a grim discovery about the contents of the box: it contains a human head.

Chin and Kono's colleagues from Hawaii Five-0, Detective Danny Williams and Lieutenant Commander Steve McGarrett join the crime scene.

Eventually, the driver succumbs to his wounds and dies with the team learning that the dead man's family are all illegal immigrants from China.

Investigation reveals that the severed head is a man named Henry Duncan who was a thyroid cancer patient under the care of Dr. Malia Waincroft, Chin's former fiancée.

The team soon discover that the victim's wife, Nicole Duncan has gone missing. Steve and Danny question Nicole's father, Robert Rovin but Rovin is acting unusually strange, almost as if he has to be somewhere.

Steve and Danny leave but begin tailing Rovin whom they follow to the dock.

Steve later kills the man who ordered Rovin to come and discovers that it's Spencer Owens, Nicole Duncan's lover and also the same man Kono interviewed earlier.

The team put the pieces together and learn that Nicole was the mastermind of the plan all along: she planned on getting the money from her father so that she and Spencer could run away together to Paris because France has no extradition laws concerning citizens from the United States.

Steve and Danny confront Nicole at the airport and eventually arrest her.

Steve later meets Mr. Chi, the father of the getaway driver, Han Chi, Steve informing Mr. Chi that Governor Pat Jameson has fast-tracked his family for American citizenship.
