Storyline

During a traffic stop in the boonies, the driver slips out a concealed handgun and shoots the HPD officer down in his tracks. Before dying, the cop gets off a couple of rounds at the fleeing car, causing it to crash. McGarrett and Danno visit the killer in the hospital, where he still couldn't care less about murdering a man ("I chopped a cop ... put a pig in a blanket"). The incident preys heavily on both men's minds, particularly Danno's. Later that same night, Danno witnesses a liquor-store robbery where the masked thief takes a shot at him. Danno follows the thief to a house, but loses him on the grounds. When a person steps out appearing to be carrying a pistol, Danno fires -- and finds to his horror that the young man was an innocent kid living at the house -- carrying a soldering iron. As the wounded boy lingers comatose and in critical condition, McGarrett must try to save Danno's reputation by proving that the robbery did occur and that the robber tricked the shooting victim ...
