Katsumoto shares information with TC and Magnum. TC doesn't believe that Hani killed anyone.

They work to find a lawyer for Hani and hire Vanessa aka Cyndi Lauper. Magnum and Vanessa are in the police station to talk with Hani. Magnum does all the talking. Hani tells his side of the story about Dr. Mason and that Mason was being threatened by another patient.

They leave and Vanessa tells him that Hani was lying.

Magnum asks Higgins to watch Mack while his dad is in prison. Kumu hears it and convinces Higgins to babysit.

TC and Magnum head to Mason's hotel room and find a tape in the answering machine which they take. A woman shows up, grabs her suitcase and leaves the hotel.

Rick shows up with a recorder to play the tape back which seems to implicate Wade. Hani is on there too. He owes money to Mason.

TC admits that his father went to jail. Rick and Magnum are shocked. This is why TC is so adamant that Hani is innocent. Magnum takes the tape to Katsumoto.

TC is pissed when he finds out Magnum turned over the tape and tells him their friendship is over.

Magnum is upset about what TC said to him. Rick wants him to fix it because it's hard on him. Magnum still thinks Hani is guilty.

The medical examiner calls Magnum to give him some more information about the murder.

It turns out that Daisy is Mason's steroid supplier. She wasn't having an affair with Mason.
