Tonight on CBS 2 in Queens, fans tuned in to “Loa Aloha” on Hawaii Five-0 and were introduced to Danny’s younger brother, Matt, played by Dane Cook.
Kamalei receives a phone call moments before Katie falls to her death off a zip-line. The voice hopes he said goodbye. Danny takes Grace to see her uncle. Matt says he’s there for fun. Danny gets called into work and Matt says he’ll babysit Grace for the day. Steve finds the end of the zip-line charred and Chin finds tracks. Kono and Danny talk to Kamalei, who says that the person knew he was a judge. They agree that Kamalei was the target. The tire-tracks match an SUV or pick-up truck. The judge has presided over many violent cases.
Steve and Danny go to pick up Grace, and wind up staying for dinner with her, Matt, and Rachel. They notice two suspicious men at the bar and intercept them. They’re agents, and Steve calls Governor Jameson when the agents refuse to tell them anything. Matt is being accused of scamming his clients out of money, but Danny refuses to believe it. They warn Danny not to say anything to Matt or they’ll get him on obstruction. Once they leave, Danny tells Steve Matt isn’t a criminal.
DPA Chen tips them off to Drew Parizi, who recently got parole. As they get to his address and find Parizi in bed, Chen receives a phone call and watches as his son’s car explodes. Danny stops by Matt’s room and does his own investigating while Matt’s getting ready to go meet a new client. Kono looks at photos of the crime scene from cameras and Steve notices a red SUV, with tracks that match what they have and a rental sticker. Chin stops by a store about a plane remote he found on scene for the bomb and finds out they have one more target.
Steve joins Danny in following Matt and they watch as he’s pat down before being let into a house. Danny joins Matt, Rachel, and Grace on the beach. Matt says the meeting went well, and when Rachel and Grace head for the water, Danny asks him about his job. Matt says to relax before he joins Grace in the water. Rachel talks to Danny, who tells her what’s going on. She tells him to talk to Matt. Up in Matt’s hotel room, Danny tells him he knows what’s going on and Matt cracks, saying he made a mistake and took the money. Danny asks why and Matt tells him he lost $58 million in one day and needed to cover it. He couldn’t turn himself in and he’s in Hawaii to cut another deal and buy his way out, but it fell through. Danny says he’s going to help him and they’ll go back to New York; Matt will probably go to jail. Danny tells him to pack and he’ll be back.
Kono finds a connection to Travis Roan, whose son died in prison. She found appeals from his mother, who says Travis never got to say goodbye. They go to his address and Steve finds signs that he was just there. He blamed Meachum—the public defender—and is now after her son. Travis gives Brian his “misplaced” backpack. Travis watches as Brian gets in the car with Diana. Steve calls her and tells them to get out of the car. Steve and Danny approach Travis, who reaches for the remote before breaking down. Danny pulls him out of his car and cuffs him.
Steve tells Danny he’ll give him and Matt a ride to the airport, but when they get to his hotel room, the FBI is there and Matt isn’t. They tell them they were going to take down Matt and a drug cartel that day but Matt changed the plan and everyone went under. Danny says he doesn’t know where Matt is, and Steve tells them he has a boat. Once the FBI clears, Danny thanks him before leaving. Danny finds Matt about to board a plane. He says he had no choice and wouldn’t survive federal prison. He says he was trying to fix things, but Danny asks if he’s just going to fly off and forget about his family. Matt tells him to either shoot him or say goodbye. Danny lowers his gun and watches the plane leave. Danny goes to Rachel and tells her he lost Matt. She hugs him.
