“Hōkū Welowelo” opened with a happy couple fishing on their honeymoon off the coast. Suddenly, an object falls from the sky & it looks like a piece of compartment from a space aircraft. A metal object is embedded on the couple's rented boat. Then, a man on a larger boat aims his gun at the couple & guns them down.
McGarrett is sleeping on a chair in his home & has a flashback where he relives watching his friend die in a fire fight during a ground war. He calls Lou to talk about Freddy Hart who gave his life to save McGarrett's. After Freddy died McGarrett quit the U.S. Navy & joined “Hawaii Five-0.” Lou guesses that McGarrett cannot sleep & ran away after his best friend's death.
The object that fell from the sky had disappeared & the coast guard did not discover anything in the water. The steel plate that stuck into the side of the boat cannot be identified. The bullets that were in the victims were from guns used by foreign countries & not U.S. military. A man named Jerry who helped out before, comes to the crime scene. He claims a “black unicorn”, a Chinese Spy Satellite may have landed in U.S. waters.
China claims they never built the satellite & other countries disagree. “Five-0” believes this may be an international incident as someone watches them with binoculars from a distance. The satellite is no longer a secret & several other countries might want that satellite for themselves.
The U.S Navy's Graham Rhodes tells McGarrett that he should just concentrate on the murders. He says that the metal stuck in the boat is just a piece of spacecraft. McGarrett calls Graham a liar who knows where that metal comes from. Chin Ho & Kono track down a photo of the shooter & behind him is a diving crew. McGarrett believes that they were professional divers from China retrieving their satellite.
Is Jerry right about China's Spy Satellite? Can “Five-0” track down those unknown divers? Will the U.S. Navy cooperate with McGarrett?” -You can watch “Hōkū Welowelo” at the official website of “Hawaii Five-0.”
