Meanwhile Kono is offered a job by corrupt ex-cops which has Chin very concerned.
Joe White who taught Garcia asks Lieutenant Commander Steve McGarret for help. Although the first autopsy declared it a suicide, further investigation reveals that Garcia was drugged and shot in the head so that the death would resemble a suicide.
