The episode starts out on Maui, where a flaming figure runs in front of a car driving past a sugar plantation.
Next scene is Catherine arriving at home to find Agent Channing, an intelligence operative who lost his job because Catherine hacked into Doris McGarrett’s relocation file.
Back at the plantation, McGarrett, Kono, and Chin arrive on scene. Max is already there and determines that the man in question was still alive when set on fire and that he had also been shot.
At the McGarrett home, Catherine and Channing tell Doris that a man she was supposed to kill 37 years prior has most likely shown up on the island.
The deceased at the sugar plantation is Aiden O’Connell, who spoke with a Dr. Olivia Victor 23 times the day before his death. Victor is a psychotherapist.
The vehicle O’Connell rented in Maui is traced via GPS to Victor’s home, where Danny and McGarrett find her washing her car.
Victor tells the pair that she lost her cell phone and cannot explain the calls from O’Connell. McGarrett notices sugar cane on her back wheel and arrests her for suspicion of murder.
The police have no probable cause to hold her, so they let her go, against McGarrett’s wishes and in spite of his loud protests.
Back in Honolulu, Danny and McGarrett pay a visit to O’Connell’s widow, and find Victor there.
Mrs. O’Connell says Victor was there to pay her respects and that she is part of the solution, not the problem. She explains that O’Connell was a recovering alcoholic for the past six months and that he had been seeing Victor for help with that problem.
Danny does not share McGarrett’s suspicions regarding Victor, citing lack of evidence and no history of criminal activity or professional misconduct.
Chin discovers that O’Connell had hired a private investigator. They trace him to Ala Moana.
Meanwhile, when Catherine and Channing meet with Doris, they tell her it is possible the Columbian assassin she was supposed to kill has shown up on the island under the name Fernando Gorzo.
Chin and Kono arrive in Ala Moana to discover the body of the private investigator. They take his laptop to Fong.
Danny tells McGarrett he is letting Victor get under his skin because he hates being challenged. As they argue, a messenger arrives with a restraining order against McGarrett. He cannot go within 500 yards of Victor. He also cannot put her on the no-fly list, since that would be harassment. So, he asks Catherine to put her on that list.
McGarrett continues to follow Victor, who spots him and tells him where she will be in ten minutes. He goes to that café, and she sets him up for breaking the restraining order.
Chin and Kono, meanwhile, get information from Fong on the laptop. Eight cases the P.I. was working on had pictures from the same location – Victor’s office building.
Catherine and Channing track the assassin to a hotel room and find pictures of Doris locked in a safe.
Danny and McGarrett visit a judge that was in one of the photos from the P.I.’s laptop and discover that Victor is his madam.
The judge’s wife had hired the P.I. to follow him. When doing so, the P.I. had discovered Victor was a madam. He had bugged her office and was in the process of blackmailing her clients.
When Catherine and Channing get to the McGarrett home, they find a lamp overturned, a bit of blood on the floor, and Doris gone.
They track them to a warehouse. When inside, they find Doris torturing Mingo, the assassin.
Meanwhile, Kono gets a hit from the no-fly list that Victor is at the airport. While Danny, McGarrett, and Kono comb the airport, Victor knocks out a stewardess in the bathroom and wears her uniform.
McGarrett figures out that Victor is not flying anywhere at all, and they shut down the airport. McGarrett stops the cab Victor is in just as it leaves the airport terminal and arrests her for murder.
The episode ends when Doris asks Catherine to never tell McGarrett about Mingo. Catherine agrees.
