Ua Hala (Death in the Family) is the 23rd episode of Season 2 in the remake version of Hawaii Five-0.


When Captain Vince Fryer is lured to a crime scene and shot dead, H50 investigate and soon discover that a supposedly dead shooter is responsible for the killing. Meanwhile, Chin faces a tough choice when he's confronted with a figure from the team's past, and Steve is left shocked when he finally discovers who "Shelburne" really is.



The aftermath of the explosion that destroyed the Honolulu Police Department.

With Wo Fat now finally in jail, Joe White arrives at Hawaii Five-0 Headquarters and tells Steve McGarrett that Steve will be taken to meet the real Shelburne.

As this happens, Steve's partner, Danny Williams learns that his ex-wife, Rachel Edwards and Rachel's current husband, Stan Edwards are planning on moving to Las Vegas, which means that Danny will lose the ability to visit his daughter, Grace Williams.

Meanwhile, Captain Vince Fryer investigates a crime scene but is subsequently shot and killed, prompting Hawaii Five-0 and the Honolulu Police Department to investigate. When Medical Examiner Dr. Max Bergman investigates further, he is shot and gravely wounded, triggering panic as the officers prepare for action.

The shooter then flees, prompting Steve and Danny to give chase while in the ambulance, Max tells Joe that the person who shot him is a woman.

Joe later relays this information to Steve as the team search the Honolulu Police Department HQ, with Steve gravely informing the rest of the HPD officers, including Sergeant Duke Lukela, that Fryer is dead.

The team investigates further and soon discovers that gas is being leaked with everyone being forced to flee seconds before the building explodes; both Kono and Chin are injured.

Once everyone regroups, it's revealed that the shooter is named Hillary Chaver, who Fryer and disgraced cop Frank Delano worked to catch, although Chaver is presumed to have been killed in a shootout.

Meanwhile, Chaver makes her way to a veterinarian where she kills the receptionist on duty while forcing the veterinarian to treat her at gunpoint before she kills him.

As this goes on, the Hawaii Five-0 team arrives, with Chaver launching shots at them, forcing the team to take cover as they attempt to gain access to the veterinarian.

Once they're inside, they discover that both the receptionist and doctor there are dead.

With time of the essence, Steve then uses a chair to lure Chaver out, and when she strikes, Steve shoots her dead while stating that was for Fryer, revealing that Steve has killed Chaver to avenge Fryer.

Later, Lieutenant Chin Ho Kelly is blackmailed into releasing Delano after both Kono and Chin's wife, Dr. Malia Waincroft, are kidnapped, with Delano forcing Chin to choose between both women.

Chin chooses Malia and races back home to save her, only to discover that Malia has been shot.

Delano then orders his partner to dump Kono into the ocean with Kono being left fighting as she struggles to escape from her bonds and battle the raging ocean.

Meanwhile, Steve and Joe arrive in Japan, with Steve discovering that Shelburne is in fact his mother, which leaves Steve greatly stunned.
