Episode Guide



I Ka Wa Mamua (In a Time Past) is the 6th episode of Season 3 in the remake version of Hawaii Five-0


After shooting a terrorist, Danny ends up triggering a motion-sensor bomb that will explode if he moves. To help take his mind off things and while the techs attempt to defuse the bomb, Steve asks Danny to relieve one of the toughest and emotional cases Danny experienced while he was a cop in New Jersey which also happened to be on September 11th, 2001.


Hawaii Five-0 investigate an explosion and they discover traces of acetone peroxide, which are used by Middle Eastern terrorists, indicating a terrorist cell may be active in Hawaii.

The team discover a terrorist hideout and they also find information of a planned attack at a military base where the Secretary of Defense is speaking at an event.

With HPD's help, H50 manage to secure the area and successfully locate and disarm the bomb but the main terrorist responsible manages to escape.

Danny Williams manages to find the terrorist and shoots him but realizes that the terrorist had a bomb.

Worse, the bomb has a proximity center which means that Danny needs to stay completely still or else, the bomb will pick up on his presence and detonate.

While the bomb squad work on defusing the device, Steve distracts Danny by asking Danny to tell the story of how he escaped death in New Jersey.

Danny remembers the incident that occurred on September 11, 2011, where he and his then partner. Grace Tillwell were kidnapped by gang members associated with a drug operation. The gang members killed Grace but Danny ultimately escaped and successfully killed all three gang members before escaping.

At the time that happened, Danny's wife was pregnant and as such, Danny named his young daughter, Grace in memory of his dead partner.

In the present, once the bomb has been defused, Steve and Danny share a hug, both men relieved that the event is over.
