Kil'ilua (Deceiver) is the 10th episode of Season 2 in the remake version of Hawaii Five-0.


While Five-0 investigates the death of a reporter, Jenna Kaye returns to Hawaii and asks Steve to help her finding her fiance who's been imprisoned in North Korea but Steve discovers that Jenna is in league with an old enemy. Meanwhile, after learning of Steve's capture, Danny, Chin, Kono, Lori along with Joe and a group of Navy SEALs led by Wade Gutches risk everything including their own lives to enter North Korea, their objective: find and bring Steve home at all costs...


Reporter Bethany Morris is murdered in her apartment, prompting the Hawaii Five-0 Task Force to investigate her death and they soon discover her laptop computer is missing, having presumably been stolen by those who killed Morris.

As this goes on, Lieutenant Commander Steve McGarret gets a visit from Jenna Kaye who tells him that her fiance, Joshua Hirsch is still alive with Jenna asking McGarrett to help save him.

Steve agrees and a while later, the two head to North Korea.

Unfortunately, when they arrive, Jenna double-crosses Steve and reveals to him that she's been working for Wo Fat for the sake of getting Joshua delivered to her.

Jenna eventually finds Joshua but is devastated to discover that he is actually dead, having been tortured for months while also suffering from poor medical treatment.

Wo Fat and his men later capture Steve, subjecting Steve to torture so that Wo Fat can find out who or what "Shelburne" is.

Meanwhile, back in Hawaii, the rest of the H50 team discover a connection between Morris and Jenna.


Chin, Lori, Kono and Danny at the airstrip with Joe White as they prepare to launch a rescue mission to save Steve.

When the team eventually learn of Steve being captured, they mount a rescue mission to save him but this is something that has to be off the grid and off the books which means that if they're caught, then the United States government will deny any knowledge of their existance.

Despite knowing the risks, everyone volunteers with helicopter pilot Frank Bama.

Back in North Korea, Jenna gives Steve a pin so that he can use it to escape while seconds later, Wo Fat chooses to dispose of Jenna by shooting and killing her with Steve being left enraged and vowing revenge for her murder.

Wo Fat later escorts Steve to an air field, presumably so that they can bring him elsewhere with Hawaii Five-0 and the SEAL team attacking.

The H50 and SEAL Teams are later successful in saving Steve with Wo Fat being forced to flee.

Realizing time is of the essence, they fly home with Lieutenant Chin Ho Kelly also revealing that he is engaged to his fiancee, Dr. Malia Waincroft once again.

Notes Edit


Quotes Edit

Steve McGarrett: I'm gonna kill you! You're a dead man! You're a dead man!
Wo Fat: We're getting on a plane in one hour, and you're taking me to Shelburne.
Steve McGarrett: Do I - is that concern I see?
Danny Williams: Yeah, jerk. I'm concerned. Big deal.
Steve McGarrett: I'll be fine, all right? It's North Korea. What could happen?
Kono Kalakaua: Okay, what the Hell?
Chin Ho Kelly: Wasn't Jenna supposed to be in DC these last three months?
Kono Kalakaua: Yeah, McGarrett said she was trying to find her fiancee. Apparently, she's not trying very hard.
Chin Ho Kelly: Well, if she lied to McGarrett about that, what else is she lying about?

Trivia Edit

  • In this episode, the team travels to a location south of Kaeso'ng, N. Korea not Khe Sanh Vietnam as earlier identified (also misspelled). NH in northern Vietnamese dialect is pronounced ING making Khe Sanh sound like Kay Saing which is close to Kaeso'ng.
