Magnum, P.I. Wiki

The Lies We Tell is the 11th episode of the third season for the 2018 remake of Magnum P.I., and the fifty-first episode overall, which was aired on March 26, 2021.


Magnum and Higgins are approached by Elena, a woman who was in the process of cheating on her husband when she witnessed her suitor being murdered in his home by two masked men. It turns out the suitor was a real estate agent pretending to live in the luxurious home, and was using the name of the real homeowner. While the P.I.s try to avoid contacting HPD due to the client's request for privacy, Katsumoto becomes involved when the victim's body washes ashore. Magnum and Higgins learn Elena was not alone, uncovering a blackmail ring with multiple victims. Meanwhile, Rick goes to visit Icepick in prison, only to learn he was transferred to a hospital and is near death.



  • At the beginning Magnum and Higgins are playing tennis which naturally ends in controversy. In the original Magnum, P.I., Magnum is a big tennis buff, and was constantly forced to bargain with Higgins for the use of the mansion's tennis courts (on which Jonathan Higgins never played).



  • It was originally schedule on March 12, however it was moved for two weeks from Friday, March 26.
  • Corbin Bernsen made his guest and final appearance in this episode.
