Ke Kinohi (The Beginning) is the 13th episode of Season 1 in the remake version of Hawaii Five-0.


When McGarrett finds three masked man invading his house, he attempts to stop them but ends up being tasered instead and things get even more complicated when he realizes that his sister has been kidnapped...


Steve McGarrett awakens to find three masked man breaking into his house with one stealing the spark plug box that contains into the death of Steve's mother.

Steve fights back against the men but is tasered, leaving him unconscious.

The next morning, Steve's colleagues, Danny Williams, Chin Ho Kelly and Kono Kalakaua arrive to investigate.

Steve then realizes that his sister, Mary McGarrett may be in danger.

With that, he and Danny race to the house where Mary has been staying, only to discover that she's apparently disappeared with Steve learning that she's actually been kidnapped.

They're soon successful in finding and rescuing Mary.

Furthermore, it's revealed that two of the enemies they killed are members of the Yakuza. Although the box has been stolen, Mary managed to take photos of the items inside the box.

Hawaii Five-0 later storm a gambling den and arrest the third assailant who participated in the raid on Steve's house. Knowing he won't tell them anything, they search his phone history and realize he called Hiro Noshimuri who is believed to be involved in not only Mary's abduction but also McGarrett's mother's death.

Unfortunately, there's also a snag: Hiro is friends with Governor Pat Jameson.

At the H50 office, Jameson warns Steve that if he is to put Noshimuri away, then H50 must find solid evidence of his criminal activities or she will not protect McGarrett from the fallout.

The missing box is eventually uncovered and although the team are able to tie Hiro to Mary's kidnapping, they can't tie Hiro to the murder of Steve's mother.

Hiro is playing golf with Wo Fat when Steve and Chin arrive, arresting Hiro.

Danny later tells Steve that Kouji Noshimuri, Hiro's brother and Steve believes is responsible for killing his mother is dead, having apparently been killed in a car accident.
