Na Hala a ka makua (Sins of the Father) is the 14th episode of Season 4 in the remake version of Hawaii Five-0.


Steve and Danny are kidnapped by an escaped convict, who wants Five-0 to prove he is innocent while Grace gets into trouble when she punches someone at school.


Roy Parish is found guilty of the murder of a real estate manager, but manages to escape from the courthouse.

As Five-0 and the Honolulu Police Department (HPD) start an island-wide search, Parish hides in Danno's car and holds him and McGarrett at gunpoint. He forces them to a construction site to confront the star witness, whom Parish claims lied under oath. When the witness is not found there, they search his address.

En route, Parish claims that he was offered a job at real estate, not knowing it is actually a scam, and when the manager was murdered, Parish was framed. The rest of Five-0 are soon made aware of the inconsistencies in the murder case.

The three find the witness dead in his home, after which they are attacked, until they are saved by Grover's SWAT team. However Parish used the opportunity to escape.

Chin recognizes one of the shooters as a fake FBI agent he encountered before. Five-0 soon learn Parish is meeting with his daughter.

During the meeting, the two are surrounded by the fake FBI agents who framed Parish, led by gangster Julian Lynch, and they kill him, but they are shot down by Five-0 before they can also kill the daughter.

Later, Parish is exonerated posthumously.
