Ho'opio (To Take Captive) is the 22nd episode of Season 3 in the remake version of Hawaii Five-0.

Synopsis Edit

When the body of a child who was kidnapped 10 years earlier is discovered, Five-0 must hunt down the kidnappers who have now taken their next victim, with the case hitting far too close to home for Danny. Meanwhile, Kono asks Catherine for a favor that could damage her relationship with Adam.

Plot Edit


Steve and Danny interrogating suspect Lloyd Grimes.

Having gone missing ten years previously, seventeen-year-old Amanda Morris is found dead, having been shot in the back, which prompts the Hawaii Five-0 team to investigate.

Things take a turn when the team learns that the victim has been in contact with missing six-year-old Ella Bishop, leading the team to suspect that whoever killed Amanda may be responsible for Ella's abduction.

The team identifies the kidnapper as Helen Cantera although Helen chooses to commit suicide by shooting herself rather than get arrested and ultimately give up Ella's location.

Despite that, the team soon discovers that husband and wife duo, Ray and Terry Beckett, are responsible, and the Becketts have been holding Amanda hostage for ten years in order to get her social security money. Furthermore, on the eve of her eighteenth birthday, Ray killed her before they kidnapped a new girl.

When the team arrives at the Becketts' house, they only find her room, but not Ella, as Ray has hidden her. Danny Williams, who has been left on edge regarding the case, given how he himself has a young daughter, manages to beat the location out of Ray while Danny's partner, Steve McGarrett, simply leaves.

Ella is eventually found and saved, Ray having buried her in a shallow grave. Ella is reunited with her overjoyed parents while Amanda Morris's parents begin grieving for their dead daughter, having read over the diary that Amanda kept while she was in captivity.

In the meantime, Danny visits Grace and hugs her.

Meanwhile, Kono Kalakaua learns from Catherine Rollins that Adam is out to meet with "Sato", who through Catherine's assistance, is revealed to be one of the leading members of the Yakuza.
