Hawaii Five-0 doesn't waste any time getting into high gear when it kicks off its fourth season in a new timeslot this Friday (9/8c, CBS). There's no daring underwater prison break like in the Season 3 premiere, but the episode still manages to set in motion events whose ripple effects will be felt throughout the season.

"Cops that serve time in here don't do too well," warns a prison guard who's "helping" Chin (Daniel Dae Kim) find answers. Based on the exclusive first look at the episode below, that's a huge understatement.
