The Dobermans having dug up a bone Higgins realizes to be human leads to Magnum reporting a possible murder to Katsumoto, who is quickly taken off the case as he recognizes the victim as his former maverick HPD mentor and partner. Thomas insists to help out as a civilian can't be taken off. They concentrate on a female corpse found nearby, identified 'informally' by the cahoot forensic examiner as long-missing school girl, one of his last cold cases he had been going trough on retirement, and the key to a tragic plot. Meanwhile Rick and T.C. are hired as driver-bodyguards for an undercover agent desperate to connect with the now adult daughter she abandoned to safety as a child. Written by KGF Vissers

You would believe that after this many Seasons and Episodes the Writers of Hawaii Five-O and Magnum P.I. (Eric Guggenheim, Peter M. Lenkov ) would KNOW the U.S. State of Hawaii. And KNOW not to misrepresent commonly known locations at Oahu (that even Tourists of a couple of days know is WRONG).

Rainbow Drive Inn, Anybody that has lived here at Hawaii longer than a few weeks that has ate at Rainbow Drive Inn (as well as most other "Local" Places) does NOT eat French Fries, like Rick did. Almost everybody here eats fresh macaroni salad (lots of mayonnaise) instead of french fries. Most people that have NOT lived here a while hate the "mac salad" as so much mayonnaise.

Shows U.S. Army Tripler Regional Medical Center, "Pink Hospital Complex" they do NOT treat Honolulu Police Department there, due to Liabilities. Only U.S. Military and at attached Spark Matsunaga Veterans Center only U.S. Military Veterans.

Shows scene of U.S. Military National Memorial of the Pacific, then shows another scene burial at a Civilian Cemetery, National Memorial of the Pacific does not have "Tombstones".
