Ua Hiki Kapalena Pau (Until the End Is Near) is the 23rd episode of Season 1 in the remake version of Hawaii Five-0.


Hawaii Five-0 and Jenna Kaye edge closer to finding Wo Fat but the team are left horrified when Danny after checking for a pulse on a body he found in a house during the gunfight with Sang Min begins suffering symptoms similar to that of a chemical attack. With Danny out of action, the team's search for both Wo Fat and Sang Min is put on hold for the time being as they also attempt to find out who is truly responsible for the possible sarin outbreak and also the victim's death.


Along with SWAT officers of the Honolulu Police Department, the Hawaii Five-0 Task Force launch an operation to capture Wo Fat, only to find Sang Min instead.

Min successfully evades them with Lieutenant Commander Steve McGarrett giving chase.

As this goes, Steve's partner, Detective Danny Williams enters the dining room of a house and finds the body of a man.

Danny checks for a pulse but it's clear that the man is dead.

After losing Sang Min, the team of Steve, Chin Ho Kelly, Kono Kalakaua tell Agent Jenna Kaye about the H50 team's history with Sang Min.

Suddenly, they're interrupted by Danny who's emerging from the house, coughing and wheezing.

Realizing something's wrong, Jenna goes into the house to investigate further with Steve joining her. She then grimly tells Steve that whatever killed the man and has infected Danny could be biological which means that they need to get Danny to a hospital immediately.

At that moment, Danny begins convulsing with Steve rushing to Danny's side and urging Danny to stay with him.


Danny being brought into the OR of Honolulu Medical Center.

A while later, doctors and medics wheel Danny into a room in the Honolulu Medical Center with Steve following at a distance.

The main doctor tells Steve that they're not sure how much time Danny has left and that Steve should tell his team to hurry.

At the house, Jenna discovers evidence that both the victim and Danny were infected with sarin nerve gas. She later relays this information to both Chin and Kono.

Jenna also contacts Steve so that he can give the information to the doctors. As a result of Danny being left incapacitated, the search for Sang Min is being put on hold while the team investigate the victim's background and determine who's responsible.

They also need to know if this is just a one-off thing or there are any other attacks being planned.

Chin reveals to Jenna and Kono that the victim is Amoka Mulitalo and what's more interesting is that the house they found Amoka in didn't belong to him with Chin stating that it actually belongs to Jeff Fallon and his wife, Sheila Fallon. They live on the mainland but they use this home whenever they're on vacation.

After interviewing the Fallon's via a conference link, the team finds a suspect: Gabriel Delgado who protests his innocence and that his young son is sick with cancer. Gabriel also used to work for the Fallon's before but was fired after they learned that he had been writing checks to himself.

They soon find Gabriel innocent but despite that setback, they get a new suspect: Russian terrorist Mikhail Yursky.

With Danny still in the hospital, recovering, Chin steps into the role as Steve's partner as the two men give chase, hunting for Yursky.

This triggers a chase through the streets of Honolulu but when they attempt to confront him, Yursky dies after unknowingly exposing himself to sarin.

They soon meet Elliot Connor who is Jeff Fallon's brother-in-law with the team suspecting that Elliot may be the man responsible for the sarin scare due to the fact that board meetings between Elliot and Jeff have gotten pretty argumentative in recent times.

Jenna finds more damning evidence: the canisters they found in Yursky's car are modeled by Elliot and Jeff's company.

Steve and Chin confront Elliot with the evidence but Elliot protests his innocence with both men soon figuring that it was Elliot's secretary, Chloe Balletine.

In the car park, Chloe attempts to run down Steve but Steve easily avoids her and shoots out her tyres as well.

In Interrogation, Chloe reveals that she'd been having an affair with Elliot and that they were happy together but according to Chin, Jeff and Sheila wanted Elliot to end it.

Chloe later partnered with Yursky and they planned on making sure that they got away with the murder because a sarin outbreak would divert the authorities away from the crime.

As such, Chloe is arrested.

A while later, Danny, now fully recovered returns to H50 Headquarters and shares a moment with the team including Steve but they're interrupted by Sang Min who reveals that he's giving himself up in exchange for protection because Wo Fat wants Min dead.


Steve McGarrett: How are you feeling?
Danny Williams: Uh. I don't know. I feel like everything hurts. My head feels like it is going to explode. Like the worst hangover I've ever had.
Grace Williams: What's a hangover?
Danny Williams: It's …. Uh… You'll figure it out . You'll learn about it one day when you're about what.. (looks at Steve) thirty-five.
Steve McGarrett: Thirty –five … thirty …. sixty.
Danny Williams: Forty years old.

(Kamekona has brought Danny food in the hospital)
Kamekona: You know Grace, when I was a little keiki like you, my mama used to bring me this chicken every time I was sick.
Grace Williams: Fried chicken isn't good for you. It has cholesterol and causes heart disease.
Kamekona: A little bit of grease is good for you. Helps the insides stay…… lubricated.
