Steve, NCIS Special Agent Kensi Blye and Joe White in the park.

In a small park in downtown Honolulu, Steve McGarrett meets his mentor, Joe White who introduces him to Special Agent Kensi Blye, an agent with the Naval Criminal Investigation Service out of the NCIS Office of Special Projects in Los Angeles.

Steve also learns that Kensi has watched the video showing his father, John McGarrett attending a meeting with deceased Governor Pat Jameson and crime boss Wo Fat.

In addition, Steve learns that John is saying the word, "Shelburne" over and over again with Kensi having gotten the word thanks to the fact that she's a lip-reader.

Unfortunately, Steve has to leave after getting a call concerning a new case.

A while later, Steve arrives at the home of Jake Griffin with the house being full of members of the Honolulu Police Department and the Hawaii Five-0 Task Force who are busy processing the crime scene.

Jake is dead, having drowned in the swimming pool of his home.

The team investigate Jake's murder and realize that it could be connected to a series of home invasions that have taken place recently.

A while later, the team invade a house where the family who live there are being held hostage and they successfully apprehend all the members of the gang with H50 realizing the gang did not kill Jake.

They soon realize that Jake's brother-in-law, mixed martial arts (MMA) instructor Marshall Martel is the one responsible for killing Jake and Marshall attempted to cover up the killing as a home invasion gone wrong.
