Last Night on Hawaii Five-0, a car theft ring bust leads to a dead body in the trunk, and the Hawaii Five-0 writers try their hand at being hip once more.
At first, the gang assumes it was a car theft gone wrong, so they lay a trap for the car thieves. The trap involves Taylor dressing up slutty…or something that some virgin costume designer considers slutty, and letting the guy drive the car she’s borrowing for the mission. When they get to a relatively secluded area, some guy with a gun grabs Taylor and yanks her out of the car, and they drive off…but of course Five-0 has all sorts of fun gadgets that lock the crooks in the car and shut off the engine, and then bam…busted car thieves.
Of course, sadly, the car thieves weren’t the real murderers…they just found the awesome old muscle car, and because they were in a hurry, didn’t check the trunk. Five-0 notices the body has a lot of scarring and stitches still fresh, and discover surgical implants all in the victim’s face, which they trace back to a plastic surgeon, who unfortunately can’t give any information about his patient.
Luckily, Boomer finds a hotel key on the victim, and they trace IT back to a swanky little hotel…upon entiring the room, McG and Danno stumble into a young lady just exiting the bathroom. After a bit of a misunderstanding, they learn that she’s the vic’s girlfriend, and she tells them that he worked on a ship laying cable in the Pacific. They head out there, and come across some information which leads them to believe it was an Irish Mob hit, only they find the two hitmen who they suspect of the murder, and learn it wasn’t them, either. So whodunnit?!? Come back soon to find out. Also, the McRib returns!
