Pu'olo (The Package) is the 14th episode of Season 2 in the remake version of Hawaii Five-0.


The Five-O team investigates the hijacking of a delivery truck in which the driver is shot while Danny has to aid Rachel when she goes into labor.


H50 investigates when a Trans-Hawaiian Parcel truck is attacked in broad daylight, but the investigation reveals that nothing's missing.

The team soon discovers that one of the couriers smuggled 100 electronic chips that are used in passports and which would ultimately allow smugglers to forge passports.

Sang Min, a criminal the team encountered in the past, helps bring the group down and, in response, is transferred to the mainland.

As this goes on, Danny Williams helps his ex-wife, Rachel Edwards, deliver her baby, Charles Williams, as Rachel's current husband, Stan Edwards, is out of town.

Furthermore, the Yakuza attempt to have Joe White killed. With the situation getting out of hand, Joe reveals to Adam that his father, Hiro is actually alive.

Joe then reveals to Steve McGarrett that Joe himself is Shelburne and that he killed Wo Fat's father.

Notes Edit

  • After Five-O charges into Nicky Chang's warehouse, Kamekona sings "Five-O Five-o what you gonna do" which is a parody of Bad Boys.
  • The shot of Steve's father's headstone at the cemetery stating date of death Sep. 20, 2010, is consistent with the air date of the pilot episode when his father is killed.


Quotes Edit

Steve McGarrett: (Steve laughs at Sang Min) I'm sorry. I know you want to do the whole dramatic stare down thing, but I can't take you seriously in that get up.
Steve McGarrett: We've uh, we've sprung Sang Min before to help with a case.
Lori Weston: Yeah? How'd that go?
Steve McGarrett: Well, he escaped custody and uh, he went on the lam for a few months. But we - we recaptured him.
Kono Kalakaua: Uh, technically, he surrendered himself.
Sang Min: (to Steve) Look, if you want to do this, if we gonna sell this, it has to be a legit local with some ties to some bad guys, huh?
Kamekona: (Kamekona enters) Yo! You need anything else?
Sang Min: Oh you gotta be kidding me. Not him!
Adam Noshimuri: He should've told me.
Joe White: He wanted to, but he knew that would only put you in jeopardy as well. His fight would become your fight. So he had to make a choice. Tell you the truth - risk your life or tell you a lie - keep you safe. You ask me, he chose wisely.
Adam Noshimuri: No. I need to see him. He wouldn't tell me where he is. But you're going to.
Joe White: No, I can't. I made Hiro a promise. What's important right now is that you proceed as if your father is dead. No one can know he's alive. But quietly, we will make inroads to Wo Fat's organization until we find him - and kill him.
Steve McGarrett: We just need to know if you're in or out.
