The Hawaii Five-0 series finale is here, so will Steve McGarrett say goodbye in “Aloha”? Here’s a preview and how to watch the Hawaii Five-0 finale live.
Friday’s episode will undoubtedly be an emotional one as the CBS reboot signs off after 10 seasons and more than 230 episodes. The storyline was set up in last week’s episode, as Steve (Alex O’Loughlin) received a letter from his mother that contained a hidden cipher. He also began to contemplate making a major life change.
Both those topics will be front and center in this episode. With his partner Danny Williams (Scott Caan) having been kidnapped by Daiyu Mei (Eugenia Yuan), the wife of his archnemesis Wo Fat, Steve will stop at nothing to rescue him. And doing so will give him closure, as CBS’s official synopsis confirms that he “finally solves the case his father left for him 10 years ago.”
It’s definitely going to be an episode that balances the show’s past with its present. There will be returns from some important characters, and all this looking back will naturally prompt characters to think about their future. Could the task force continue without McGarrett? Would they want to? The show wouldn’t really kill Danny off at the end…would it?
CBS also posted a great video from behind the scenes of the Hawaii Five-0 series finale, giving fans a chance to hear directly from cast members about the show coming to an end.
Who’s returning in the Hawaii Five-0 series finale?
The Hawaii Five-0 series finale will feature appearances from a trio of recurring characters who were pivotal in Steve’s life: his father John (played by William Sadler) and his adversaries Wo Fat (Mark Dacascos) and Victor Hesse (James Marsters). Since all three characters are deceased, we can expect flashbacks in the episode.
Original cast members Grace Park and Daniel Dae Kim, who played Kono Kalakaua and Chin Ho Kelly, are not expected to return in the episode. It’s possible that the show could have one of the other characters reference what Kono and/or Chin are doing now, but it’s not clear if they’ll get mentioned in the episode either.
