Danno's a dog man! Not a surprise, really, but the show should have given Danno a dog long ago, if only for the excellent cargument with McGarrett.
This week, the unit investigates the mysterious murder of a federal agent who died in a light plane crash in the ocean... except she was dead before she hit the water. (Photo: CBS.)
Here's where they filmed:
We start with surfing on the North Shore, looks to be near Pupukea. Fantastic surfing footage... though not really big enough for tow-in, can see it was needed for the crash scen — you always want a jet ski when a Cessna is bearing down on you in the Pacific.
Quick shots of Waikiki and the Ala Wai canal.
The plane crash may have been set on the North Shore, but the filming is on the Leeward Coast, at the Waianae Boat Harbor. Distinctive mountains.
Quick shots of Kahala and Honolulu.
Five-0 headquarters, known in real life as Aliiolani Hale.
Lookin' good, Diamond Head!
A quick shot of Bellows Beach creeping up on the Mokulua Islands.
The Board of Water Supply on Beretania Street, filling in for the coroner's office.
Quick shots of the Rainbow Tower at Hilton Hawaian Village, the Royal Hawaiian beachfront and the Waikiki Beach coastline.
Epic foot chase through Chinatown!
Nice overhead shot of Punchbowl.
The raid on the flower-shop-cum-exotic-animal-poachers was the old Advertiser building.
We visit Kamekona at his shrimp truck at Duke's Lagoon, Hilton Hawaiian Village.
There's a Chinese tea and herb shop on Pauahi Street in Chinatown — looks like that's where they went to find Dr. Yang, a purveyor of black market supplements.
Kamehameha Highway on the Windward side — love those side-by-side helicopter shots.
Gorgeous cloud-topped mountain shot of Honolulu from what looked like St. Louis Heights.

The Quotable Danno
"I'd be way more impressed with your ninja skills if, a) the door wasn't unlocked, and b) if I didn't give you the apartment number."
"He's an alien, okay? He's got different plumbing on his planet." — defending the sci-fi flick "Enemy Mine."
"Oh, you got good taste in humans, huh?" — to the dog after Danno charmed him by rubbing his ears.
"These people looked a lot scarier as heat signatures."
"He did! It's something he does regularly." — referencing McGarrett's latest break-in.
And a special guest quotable shout-out to Dr. Max Bergman for the much-hyped "Heroes" reunion between Masi Oka and Greg Grunberg:
