Ka Iwi Kapu (Sacred Bones) is the 7th episode of Season 2 of the 2010 remake version of Hawaii Five-0.


It's Halloween in Hawaii but the team's celebrations are put on the back-burner when they discover that the death of a young couple may be linked to a serial killer.


While exploring a sacred burial ground and also shooting a documentary, a young couple are attacked and brutally murdered.


Steve, Danny, Lori and Kono at the crime scene.

As such, the Hawaii Five-0 Task Force are called in to investigate the circumstances.

During the autopsy, Max Bergman discovers a fingerprint from a criminal who was killed by his girlfriend several months ago.

Danny Williams and Agent Lori Weston with help from Gabrielle Asano later return to the graveyard and by using ground-penetrating radar, uncover several bodies not belonging to the ancient Hawaiians.

They soon discover that the killer is Jacob Garrison who is not a serial killer but actually a body parts trafficker for the black market.

However, when Steve McGarrett, Danny Williams, Chin Ho Kelly and Agent Lori Weston confront Garrison, demanding that he give up, Garrison chooses to burn himself alive to stop them from capturing him.

Danny later acquires an apartment belonging to one of the victims but after believing he saw a ghost of one of the previous tenants, Danny orders the rest of the team pack up the belongings much to their dismay while Steve tries to get to Danny to presumably either change his mind or get Danny to tell him what happened.
