Kupouli 'la (Broken) is the 6th episode of Season 4 in the remake version of Hawaii Five-0.


It's Halloween in Hawaii and the team on the trail to find a doctor who's performing illegal experiments on people.


While Max is attending a Halloween party, a police officer shoots a crazed doctor Michael Besner who later infects Max too. Five-0 find traces of a drug that drug cartels use to control their victims. They soon realize that Besner entered a morgue to cut off the head of a corpse, Lisa Mills, who died in a car accident. She was presumed missing a year earlier before she resurfaced; Five-0 believe that Lisa was kidnapped after finding cameras in her car and apartment.

Ultimately, it is revealed she was kidnapped by William Ellery, a scientist who believes that criminals can be reformed if their brains are infected with parasites, however the experiments proved to have flaws, namely, the parasites cause cysts which causes the subject to black out.

Five-0 race to save Ellery's next victim, Brock Upton. However Brock manages to break free and kill Ellery in defense.

Meanwhile, Catherine finds one of Sato's lieutenants, Hideaki Kuroda in Hawaii.
