I'm betting Adam is wishing he stayed on the mainland with Kono.
It was another tough day for him as his organized-crime task force went in the crapper on Hawaii Five-0 Season 8 Episode 18.
I think that's the best way to describe it, after the two Yakuza to whom Jessie was closest turned up dead and Adam got arrested for Hideki's murder.
Adam being framed for murder was the most intriguing of the three storylines in this episode, so let's start there.
Two cops, with guns drawn, pulled over Adam and found Hideki's dead body in his trunk. It seems someone had phoned in a tip about just such a possibility.

So FBI Agent Colin McNeal, who has had it in for Adam since Hawaii FIve-0 Season 8 Episode 12, went after him hard as his prime suspect.
This left McGarrett and Grover, the only members of Five-0 available (more on that later), to find evidence to clear Adam.
Complicating matters was that Adam feared that Jessie, his confidential informant inside the Yakuza, had turned on him.
Still, Adam refused to give her up to McNeal, even if it would be the simplest way to get himself cleared.
There were dead ends for McGarrett and Grover. They tracked down Namato, Hideki's No. 2, and, guess what, he was also dead.
Then, Jessie was finally sighted, and led HPD on a car crash, and then outran McGarrett, that paragon of masculinity, in a footrace. Fortunately, he was crafty and cut her off at the pass, that time-honored tradition.
Jessie was rightfully running scared after the two men closest to her in the organization get murdered, and Adam seemingly disappeared.
I knew everyone was wrong about Jessie. Adam gave her the chance to do something legitimate, to make a difference, so she wasn't going to turn on him the first chance she got. She was just a little too dedicated to her undercover role.

Jessie was the witness they needed, since she had seen the murder scene, and could take them to that trailer. Only it wasn't there when they arrived. It's almost like it was a conspiracy.
Fortunately, McGarrett knew a guy and made a call to get the satellite feed he needed. Catherine used to be so useful for that in the earlier years.
They used the satellite feed to identify the hauler, raided their garage, and, a short firefight later, they took possession of the trailer and the evidence to free Adam.
There was still plenty of questions left hanging. First would have to be who framed Adam? Second would be who is the female, familial DNA on Hideki's body from? A previously unknown child of his brother, or his father? Finally, what impact will Adam's distrust have on Jessie?
The second storyline could be titled "Junor and Tani Hit the Streets."
Or, in Junior's case, "The Streets Hit Back." Let's be careful ou..
