“Pono Kaulike” opened with a recap of Danno returning the millions of dollars his brother Matthew had stolen. Columbian drug dealer Marco Reyes killed Matthew. Danno then shot & killed Marco. Back in the present, Danno is talking to grade school kids about his job as a police detective. U.S. Marshals arrest him on the spot. Chin is also arrested for conspiracy to commit murder. He helped Danno raise money to help Matthew.
The state department tells Danno that he is being extradited to Columbia & charged with the murder of Marco Reyes. Joe tells Steve that Marco was an asset to the CIA & they want someone to pay for his death. Joe retrieve’s a USB stick & it shows that Marco was helping the CIA with an operation called, “sandpiper.” The CIA invested in the housing market at Columbia where Marco was moving drugs in that market.
A detective with the last name of Coughlin interrogates Chin. He has been after him for over a year. He wants to know where the $5 million dollars Chin borrowed from his brother-in-law. Chin tells him about Danno, but Coughlin doesn’t believe him. Meanwhile, the state department has photos of Danno carrying the bags of money worth millions of dollars.
Danno figures that Marco Reyes was on the payroll of the U.S. Department. He also believes that someone has to pay for Marco’s death & it is him because he killed Marco. Danno waives extradition & is put on a plane to stand trial for murder in Columbia.
