“Five-0” investigates on the street where a man named Bruce Paloma is found dead at the center of an intersection. Bruce worked at the medical center whose car was jacked. A unknown person on the motorcycle opened Bruce's car trunk & stole a human body part.
Catherine was in the field at the country of Afghanistan several years ago. She was seriously wounded & Amir found her. He took her into his home so she could recover from a fatal bullet wound. The phone call Catherine recently took was news that Amir's son had been kidnapped by the Taliban. She decides to go back to Afghanistan to help find him. Steve goes with her.
Leon Chase is questioned by Chin Ho & Danno. Leon is the last known organ trafficker on the island. He claims that he had nothing to do with the stolen human liver. Leon says that he was home alone the night the human organ was stolen. Kono checked the tire tracks of Leon's motorcycle & matched them up against the tire tracks at the crime scene. There was no match.
Catherine & Steve arrive on horse back to a tiny village in Afghanistan. They later track blood in a field to find Amir shot & leaning against a tree. He went out alone to fight the Taliban who kidnapped his son.
