Abby tells Robert that Five-O knows about him, he doesn’t seem fazed and says that was always going to happen, the important thing is that Five-O doesn’t find out about Abby. Abby says they don’t, but they’re smart and they’ll figure it out soon enough. Robert points out they’ll only find out if she slips up, but he has faith that won’t happen.

Robert tells her nothing changes and she has to just keep doing what she doing, sooner or later they’ll get something solid on Five-O. Abby disagrees, saying she’s been undercover for months and she hasn’t seen anything that warrants the disbandment or indictment of any members of Five-O.

Robert says that Five-O have operated by their own rules for too long and that leads to gross misconduct.

Coughlin tells her that he sent her into Five-O to help him take them down, not to become one of them. Abby tells him that they have Gabriel in custody, Five-O was extracting him when Shioma sent in a team to assassinate him.

Abby tells him that they are literally under attack as they speak, Coughlin asks her what the hell is she doing here then. Abby says she trying to save her friends. She says as they don’t know the ID of the mole, they can’t call for backup or who to trust. That’s why she needs his help.
