Magnum, P.I. Wiki

A Game of Cat and Mouse is the 14th episode of the second season for the 2018 remake of Magnum P.I., and the thirty-fourth episode overall, which was aired on January 30, 2020.


Jin the pickpocket calls Magnum and Higgins from jail with information about an imminent assassination, forcing Magnum and Higgins to bail him out of jail to track down the killer. After the assassination goes wrong, their work gets even more complicated when the intended victim goes on the run.


  • Higgins bailing out Jin after his undercover assignment makes no sense. For him to have a bail means he would have had to have a bail hearing in which officers of the court would have to perjure themselves about what charges he was supposedly facing. It would have risked the judge denying bail and unlawfully imprisoning Jin.
  • When the fire alarm goes off, Juliet uses an access card to open a door marked "fire exit". It makes no sense to need such a card to open a door designed to allow a safe exit during a fire.



  • Chef Roy Yamaguchi made his guest appearance in this episode.


Gordon Katsumoto: You haven't started going through the book yet.
Jin Jeong: I can't. Everybody's looking at me.
Gordon Katsumoto: Of course they are. They know you. They're making sure you're not stealing anything off my desk.
