TVOM: "The case in this week’s Hawaii Five-0 involves a freelance journalist with a penchant for covering dangerous areas where people are found dead in alleys. The journalist, Julius Brennan, is a source of mystery as first; he has had very little work in the last few months, and he has hand-written notes in a tattoo form on his chest. The same type of work is found in Brennan’s room, so Jerry is tasked with cracking the code while the team works the rest of the case. An old colleague further convinces the team that Brennan was not the man he used to be, and all clues point to his death being linked to his time in the Congo. The team is opened to a war-torn world that Brennan experienced, and an enemy he made while in the region. This enemy is Roko Makoni (played by Barkhad Abdi, who did a fantastic job playing opposite Tom Hanks in Captain Phillips), and what’s worse is that Makoni is discovered to be very much alive and living in Oahu, despite rumors of his death being reported by the CIA."
