The team must solve the murder of a Hawaiian warrior — or, rather, a war reenactor. He's actually a builder of ships, which allowed locals to relive the saga of the Superferry, an interisland craft that was shut down under similar protest a few years back. Thanks to the writers for the trip down Memory Lane.

And here's where they filmed:
Quick shots of various points along the Koolau Mountain range.
The team building exercise is at the back of Kualoa Ranch, as well as the Hawaiian warrior reenactment.
McGarrett's C-17 lands at Marine Corps Base Hawaii at Kaneohe Bay.
Several quick shots of gorgeous Oahu locales: Aloha Tower, the breakers at Sandy Beach, surfers just off the Sheraton Waikiki, the Gold Coast next to Diamond Head.
Danno is efforting a fritatta at McGarrett's house, aka the Bayer Estate in Aina Haina.
Quick shot of the Nuuanu Pass by the Pali Highway.
It's down to Bishop Museum to solve the riddle of the Hawaiian artifact fragment.
Nice overhead of Ala Moana Beach Park toward Waikiki.
An overhead of McGarrett's Camaro driving through the Kapahulu neighborhood, and it looks like that's where they staked out gust star Apolo Ohno, rather than Waipahu.
Back to Aliiolani Hale in downtown Honolulu — Five-0 headquarters.
Honolulu Harbor for the shipyard scene.
They may have tracked Urthstrike to Kailua, but the motorcycle chase just thereafter was back in town, through the streets of Iwilei to Honolulu Harbor.
Kono meets our vic's widow outside the downtown Post Office.
Kono is walking out of Hawaii's Department of Transportation building. Hard to mess that one up.
Fantastic sunset shots of Waikiki.
Happy hour with the gang at Tropics Bar & Grill at the Hilton Hawaiian Village.
The Quotable Danno
Lots of bromance moments and Danno quips galore:
"Great. You killed my fritatta."
"You have an aneurysm on your face. Why?"
"I call it an invitation to chafing." — responding to Chin's description of the Hawaiian malo.
"You might want to pull your guys back from that house."
"Unfortunately, Seth probably is just an opportunistic dumbass after all."
"Book me a towel."

Once again, a great chase scene that ends in a Danno quip — our fave.
