Hawaii Five-0 - A'ohe pau ka 'ike i ka halau ho'okahi

McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin) and Danny (Scott Caan) investigate a computer-controlled car involved in a hit-and-run which uncovers the use of the new technology by a savvy drug ring. In the episode's B-story, Tani (Meaghan Rath) and Quinn (Katrina Law) investigate the murder of an apartment complex's most hated tenant which babysitting a pair of YouTubers (Tom Allen and John Parr) who are along for the ride while helping the state with a recruitment video. Other than Danny's Knight Rider references, neither story is all that memorable in this standalone episode. The return of Caan also allows for the return of the Steve-Danny dynamic, but there's not much action in the latest episode (and what little there is, in the opening chase sequence and the technician using the car to save her father at the end, doesn't involve Five-0). The pay-off on the B-story is rather weak as well, as the video made by the stoners (like the rest of the episode) lacks any punch.
