Hawaii Five-0 arrive at the beach to investigate and discover that the door was sealed shut to stop Sinclair from escaping. They also find a connection between Sinclair and a bookie, Derek Marcum but when confronted, Marcum denies killing Sinclair.

The team soon discover that Pauline Lucero, Sinclair's daughter from a previous relationship and who was an assistant is the killer. When they arrest her, Pauline states that Sinclair never cared about her or her mother with Pauline unaware that Sinclair did care given that he was going to give her a lot of money for her future.

Danny Williams: Hey. Hey. They're just women.
Chin Ho Kelly: Who happen to be insanely hot and make millions of dollars.

Danny Williams: No, relax, okay? I had H.P.D. run Renny's financials and his phone records. Look at this. The guy's like a 15 year-old girl. All text messages. No phone calls.
Steve McGarrett: Why is a fashion photographer sending coded texts? All right, you know what, I'm gonna send this to Catherine. She can have, ah, the boys in intel run it
Danny Williams: Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Steve McGarrett: What?
Danny Williams: Not coded text. Okay, no need for your little Rambo-ette. Okay, this is not your, uh, cloak-and-dagger spook speak. This is daddy's world. Okay. These are bets.
Steve McGarrett: Bets? What are you talking about, bets?
Danny Williams: Guy had action all over the place. "Bos minus eight," that's Boston Celtics minus eight points. "NYK, 2.5," that's the Knicks minus two and a half points.
Steve McGarrett: Check you out.
Danny Williams: The guy was an animal. Had bets all over the place.
