The new Governor assigns a Homeland Security agent, Lori Weston to the Five-0 task force. As a profiler, she brings real skills to the job, but she’s also there to make sure McGarrett and the team abides by the new rules (no immunity). McGarrett gets called away from the meeting to go investigate the kidnapping of a 15 year old champion paddleboarder, Jen Hassley. Jen has a heart condition and lost her medication so time is of the essence in finding her. McGarrett tries to sideline Lori by having her babysit the family; however, she ends up finding a key clue to identifying Jen’s kidnapper – the identity of a man who has been emailing Jen about meeting her birth mother. Jen’s parents were told the birth mother was dead, and when they find the man’s apartment, it looks like he’s using personal information about a number of girls and could be a pedophile. They track down one potential victim and discover that their alleged pedophile is actually a cult extractor. Our team deduces that Jen is the granddaughter of a local cult leader and he’s kidnapped her. With Lori’s help, McGarrett rescues Jen. Chin Ho is worried about Kono; HPD IA Lt Fryer has been interrogating her and ultimately decides to have her kicked off the force. Jenna Kaye returns to Washington to follow up on a CIA lead that her fiancé may still be alive.

Swimmers are disturbed when they find a floating hand in the water. The hand belongs to Blake Spencer, a deep-sea diver who is known for his shipwreck finds. When they find the rest of his body and it’s clear he was a murder victim. Closer inspection of Blake’s life reveals that he had invested everything into a mysterious big dive that seems to be connected to some Spanish Galleons they find in his apartment. When they learn from a local expert the coins are fake, their number one suspect is the businessman behind the dives, since he might have killed Blake to keep the secret that the shipwreck had been "salted”. Tracking the boat Blake used, our team finds that Blake’s secret project was a hearse that had fallen off a ship during WWII that was carrying cash that was supposed to have been destroyed in a crematorium and replaced with "Hawaii-overprint” currency. Blake’s secret dive was discovered and the two men who discover it double-cross him for the money. Ironically, Blake wasn’t interested in the money, he only cared about the casket in the hearse–it carried the body of his grandfather, and he wanted to give his dying mother her last wish to have it recovered. Also, Chin Ho learns that Kono used his ID to access police records. After enduring some teasing from McGarrett, Danny ends up asking out the coin expert.

Taking a closer look at the chef’s personal life, they discover he sponsored a local charity that trains kids to be MMA fighters to keep them off the streets.

A dead body in the trunk of one of the stolen cars, with his face wrapped up like a mummy. The victim’s fingerprints have been sanded down and he’s clearly had plastic surgery to change his appearance, but Max helps them with their first lead, by identifying the doctor who put in the facial implants. McGarrett and Danny talk to the doctor, but he’s not helpful: the man used a fake ID, refused to have his pictures taken and paid in cash. Meanwhile, the rest of the team pursues the car thief ring, hoping to possibly find the killer. Finally, a hotel key in the car leads our team to the victim’s girlfriend who reveals he’d been working on an oil rig when something happened and he said they needed to disappear. Turns out, the victim had left witness protection and disappeared when his cover had been blown. Someone from his old neighborhood recognized him and called the mob boss who wanted him dead.

A busload of school children is kidnapped and McGarrett and the team are puzzled by the ransom demand: the kidnappers want the $80 million worth of cocaine Five-0 recently seized. As the team works to locate the missing children, Danny and McGarrett question Vargas, a low-level courier and the only man who survived the recent drug bust. He doesn’t seem to know anything but Kono works with him and gets him to retrace the route they took. They manage to locate the warehouse and though it contains the missing bus, the children are gone. McGarrett manages to get the Governor to let them use the confiscated drugs as bait, but when they put the drugs in the drop car, the car is immediately blown up. With the evidence destroyed, Vargas will go free, and the team realizes that the kidnappers went to a lot of trouble to free him, meaning he’s much higher up in the cartel than he’s admitted. With time to find the children running out, McGarrett and the team put together a bunch of other leads in order to locate them and manage a daring rescue in a rock quarry.
