The wife of a wealthy doctor is shot to death. The physician seems to have a tight alibi while clues point to another man. But the more Five-O probes, the more the obvious turns out not to be. The suspect is arrested while trying to fence the dead woman's jewelry. But he was dying and had little motive to kill the woman. McGarrett & Co. need to dig deeper to find the truth.

When McGarrett is going over the ballistics report with Doc. Bergman, the doc mentions that one shot was fired against Mrs. Southmore's head. McGarrett then mentions "coup de grace". This is a French term for "the kill shot", usually the last shot fired to make sure a victim is dead. See more
McGarrett informs Dr Southmore that his wife was killed with a .38 caliber Smith & Wesson pistol. Ballistics will reveal the caliber of the pistol, but not the brand. Not unless it is a highly unusual type of bullet, which the .38 fired by the Smith & Wesson and many others is not. See more
