I Helu Pu (The Reckoning) is the 15th episode of Season 2 in the remake version of Hawaii Five-0.


The team attends Governor Denning's fundraiser, but things take a turn when the body of a woman is discovered. Under orders from Denning not to disrupt the charity event, the team choose to run a silent, low-key investigation, hoping to find the killer. The outcome ultimately results in one of the team members losing their job for good.


The Hawaii Five-0 Task Force, along with Catherine Rollins, are busy attending a silent auction charity event in a hotel.


The Governor's silent auction.

However, things change when the body of a young woman is found.

Despite their efforts, Governor Samuel Denning refuses to lock down the hotel, forcing the team to launch a low-key investigation so as to not disrupt the event.

The team soon finds a link between the victim, Victoria Chase, and the corporation Garlin International. They meet Victoria's sister, Amanda Chase, who worked at the corporation and who was raped by her boss, Dimitri Vonokov, with the team suspecting that Vonokov killed Victoria as Victoria was seeking revenge against Vonokov.

Unfortunately, the team can't question Vonokov as he's hiding at the Russian consulate.

To get Vonokov out, Chin Ho Kelly breaks into the consulate with a fake bomb, triggering a huge international incident.

Vonokov later escapes but is chased by Steve McGarrett although both men are hit by a car driven by Agent Lori Weston.

Both are later taken to hospital for treatment with Kono Kalakaua surreptitiously obtaining a blood sample from Vonokov during his surgery, and with it they prove Vonokov was the murderer.

However, despite the case being solved, the fallout from the international incident triggered by the fake bomb crisis has Lori resigning from the task force for good with Lori visiting Steve's office and telling Steve she has feelings for him.


  • Danny knows a few sentences in Russian.
