McGarrett and the team figure out the ex-husband didn't kill our victim and our victim may have been a case of mistaken identity. He was thrown from a room that belonged to a thief, who had been targeting several high-end houses on the island to support his party lifestyle. Clearly the thief had stolen something worth killing for. The find the thief who has no idea who's trying to kill him, but when the 5-0 team investigates his stolen merchandise, they find a flash drive hidden in a tourist "snowball" that has evidence of an old murder. Using the flash drive, the find the killer as well as solve the old murder.
