7.20 Press Release & Promo Pics

H50 - 720-001

“Huikau nā makau a nā lawai’a” – Five-0 helps PI Harry Brown (guest star William Forsythe) work the case of a kidnapped wealthy woman whose husband may have something to hide. Also, Rachel tells Danny that she is getting a divorce from Stan, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, March 31 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

(“Huikau nā makau a nā lawai’a” is Hawaiian for “The Fishhooks of the Fishers Become Entangled”)

I’ll update the post as soon as pictures become available.

I actually had to laugh when they called the divorce shocking news for Danny. Seriously? What the heck is shocking about that?

In my experience, it is never a good sign when we get a ton of pictures before the episode airs.

  1. I think this will be another silly episode and the McDanno fans will love it. Matt Wheeler has done some good episode and some very bad episodes.

    The Rachel story line this could be the start of a story line going into season 8 and by the end of season 8 Danny will be back with Rachel and together opening a restaurant and retire from five 0

  2. Lol at shocking news. Yeah right, because a marriage where one part sleeps with another man (*cough*) without protection and then lies about who’s the father of the baby has a future laying ahead full of rainbows and unicorns.
    I’ll still stick with Steve. He knows right from wrong. And how human relationships work.

  3. I hope the main case is interesting because I don’t need to have stupid bonding scenes with Steve and Danny as they sort out Danny’s feelings about this. The news isn’t shocking since Rachel doesn’t know what she wants in a husband. I like the actress not the character. Maybe Rachel is homesick for Jersey and that will be the exit I have been dreaming of. We know that if Grace and Charlie go back to Jersey, Dannoying will be hot on their heels.

    1. Moonjat: I have to agree with you. As long as Danny goes, I don’t much care where. I would prefer Jersey to Hawaii but I’d settle for anywhere as long as it didn’t mean he was still a member of the task force.

      I like the actress, too and I am sorry they turned her character into such a terrible person. But like I said before, its just the old Evil Woman thing they like to do.

      And as many of you know, I really like SC and wonder if he gets sick when he reads the ridiculous lines they write for him to say. He is too talented for this crap.

  4. Once again the viewers are being treated to a Women Are Evil episode.

    Steve wants Danny to suggest counseling to Rachel and Stan to save their marriage? Why? None of his business how two adults in a marriage want to handle a possible “conscious uncoupling”.

    I am happy for Stan if he has finally realized that Rachel will always put Rachel first, before him, or her children. And since his name is listed on Charley’s birth certificate, I would like to see him ask or custody. Now that would make a powerful episode. But will that happen? I doubt it. Stan will just roll over and hand Rachel a large divorce settlement so she and Danny can open that Italian restaurant. Rachel and Danny seem to be endgame, probably in S8 when SC becomes an occasional guest star. ( Would love to see it tied up by the S7 finale but can’t see how they have enough time to do it.)

    Rachel is only half to blame for the Charley mess. She didn’t get pregnant by herself. Let Danny face the consequences of his actions, too.

  5. I’m not sure why Danny would be shocked or even care if Rachel gets divorced. He seems to be happy with Melissa. I especially don’t understand why Steve cares. I guess he knows Danny is still in love with his ex because he gets it. 😉 I didn’t mind Rachel at first, that is until they made her into another evil woman by lying. **eyeroll** . One can hope they run off with their kids back to Jersey and live happily ever after. I think most of us knew Rachel would eventually be Danny’s endgame. Let’s hope it’s sooner rather than later.

  6. Danny is shocked to learn Rachel is leaving Stan. I totally get it. This is the same man that didn’t figure out the kid was his. And, for the record, I. Don’t. Care.

          Doubt this will be a loved McDanno epi unless Danny tells Rachel he has a ‘thing” for Steve!

          1. I think they are expecting Steve to be all NO! Stay away from her!

            But I think they might be a tad disappointed in Steve’s response to the news…..

            Recall PL’s motto – “The heart wants what the heart wants”


  7. As per usual, only Rachel is vilified. You know, because it’s not like Danny committed adultery or anything. Nope, he’s completely innocent in all of this.

    I have a theory in my head of how this is going to play out – but then again, I always give way too much credit to the writers in my head and instead all we get is Liver.

    I believe that Stan is a bad guy in the end. I don’t think it will absolve Rachel of her sin – because, yikes she takes the cake for characters who have been made to be AWFUL – but I think there’s something that will play into future episodes.

    Rachel and Danny – please get back together, and take your family to Jersey.

      1. Leica, as I understand it, that happens ALL THE TIME. It was a total accident. Case in point… I read an ER report last night where a man had a “toy” in his nether regions. After it was removed (painfully, I’m sure) , he was indignant when he told them he fell on it and asked the nurse, “How else do you think it got there???” So, Leica, I ask, “how else do you think it got there???”

  8. 😂 reading all your comments on nodding along.

    Even after all that’s gone on between Danny and Rachel, I’d find them reuniting far more believable than Danny and Melissa’s relationship ever was.

    I feel like this divorce announcement, and Peter’s lunch with Michelle, is leading to a reunion (romantic or otherwise) in S8. No matter what Peter says, IMO H50 couldn’t go on without Alex (and I’m pretty sure if Alex does indeed leave then Scott will too), so it seems to me like they may be looking to tie up all the loose ends.

    One can hope….

    1. Update: Did y’all notice Michelle just followed PL on IG? I’m really thinking that lunch was to discuss her return.

      She also liked a comment from a fan defending Catherine/Michelle. Does she do that a lot?


      1. Personally, I hope so.

        As for her liking someone defending her – she has every right to. Like the character or not, people have always said disgusting things about her. I have zero tolerance for that.

        Liked by 1 person

        1. I agree. She’s definitely got the right to. They don’t have to like character, but hating on the actress/actor is a no. Tbh, I don’t even know why they hate her.

          From what I can see, the majority of the audience outside the fandom want Cath back on the show.

        1. 😂 I don’t follow him on IG either, but it showed in the activity that she’d just followed him. I figured Michelle would have already been following him, but I guess she wasn’t interested in all the MacGyver posts either.

  9. Stan seems to be a decent person. Despite the fact producers want to make him out to be such a “jerk.” Really seems that in a sense, Rachel married him for his money. But Rachel did put this on herself and Danny. Over Charlie as really feel bad for Stan. And do not think Stan is abusive IMHO. Let’s hope not though.


    1. No, I don’t think Stan is abusive to Rachel, but I do have a feeling that he’s a bad guy in the business world. I don’t know if that has anything to do with the divorce, but I would think that the writers would make it that way so that it looks like Rachel is better off without him – and by default, try to wipe clean the CHEATER issue.

      1. Child you are way more intelligent and creative than the Writers. But I will personally accept your rational as my own head-canon for this SL. I often make up, or steal from one of y’all, an alternate canon than Show canon. 😉

      2. What if Rachel gets killed by Stan, (making him bad) Danny gets full custody of both kids, (rewarding him for being a jerk) then looks up Gaby (who has forgotten how badly he treated her) and marries her (because he needs a mother for his children but Amber is still too young and needs a mother herself ?) It ends the Rachel-Stan problem ,the “whose my Daddy” problem and the McDanno problem. Just not the pineapple on pizza problem which can only be cured if he moves back to Jersey.

    1. He’s looking fine indeed. I hate that tan shirt – looks like he’s about to lead a safari tour. I do get distracted by all of the zippers on his pants.

      Some more than others….

        1. I have no problem with the shirt either. I prefer him in blue but that is my fav color. I always find I am so focused on his face that the shirt is an afterthought. Unless he is shirtless…..then my eyes do roam.

        2. Me too! You know Grace, I really really like it here, because the people here are hilarious. I can’t agree with everyone or everything, so I am not that of a fan of Cath or SC’s acting choices. But I have to draw a line!
          How dare someone to hate that shirt? 😉

          I LOVE it. It’s the best. The best shirt. Believe me. It’s great. I know many people who love it. They are good people, they agree. Other shirts? Nobody cares. They are losers. SAD.

      1. i’m okay with the tan shirt; although, we all know he looks best in blue. In thinking about why they put him in the tan, I mean, they have to give someone else a chance to be noticed at some point. I don’t care what anyone else on the show looks like. I prefer a Friday with Steve in every shot, but some strange people would disagree with me.

  10. I don’t think Stan is bad. In s2 PL said Danny and Rachel weren’t really committing adultery because Rachel told Danny her marriage was over. (Like no cheater has ever used that line). I think Stan is the shlep that is mixed up with the fact that Danno and Rachel are still in love with each other. The theme for s8 will be “#truelove reunions”

    Liked by 2 people

      1. Sam:

        Maybe that’s why I haven’t seen any uproar among the “true fans” at Rachel’s return. The writers absolved them from being called adulterers. They got a special dispensation or a get out of hell free card.

        Wonder if we’ll get the same subdued reaction when Cath returns?

        1. Eh, the McDs are bitching about Rachel, as are some of the abCs. The McDs want McD, not Danno and the ex reconnecting. And of course they hate Rachel for hurting Danno…tho interestingly they never hate Danno for being a bitch to McG but I digress…

          The abCs are wary of a Danchel reunion cos that man got lead toooooooo…McRoll! 😥 😉

          And of course the general misogyny in this fandom makes any girl coming on Show a dirty rotten development. Excepting Abby cos they don’t give a shite about Chin, and apparently Lynn cos she’s NotCath. 🙄

          1. GNP:
            The portrayal of women on this show is disturbing. Even Kono, who was the sole exception to misogynistic hate of a segment of the fandom, was recently portrayed as an out of control and unprofessional member of the 50. She wasn’t Badass. No, she was shown to be in desperate need of therapy and suspension from the Task Force. So I guess the writers are batting 1000. The McDannos and the ABC’s validate their work so why should they change?

            1. I think that is exactly the point. I like him with Lynn because I really like Lynn and I like the actress. But I am pretty sure most of the McLynn fans just like Lynn because she is not Cath. I prefer people who can back up their ship.

              1. I’m not feeling it with Lynn. Lynn’s character is nice enough, and Sarah and Alex seem to have a lot of fun bts, but on screen it feels awkward for me.

                IA with what you said about backing up their ship. The McLynn shipping started immediately, before the episode had even aired!

                1. Totally agree with you. I enjoyed 607, but they never developed this character. For me, it’s just an empty shell Steve has some fun with.
                  I see her as an interlude, but have nothing against her per se. Just don’t see any onscreen chemistry.

                  1. Ditto, y’all. Indeed the chemistry seems to be all off-screen. Alex and Sarah seem much more comfy and light-hearted together than Steve and Lynn do.

                2. There is zero chemistry between McG and Lynn. Whatever their off screen friendship is, it does’t translate to the TV. But why worry since she is not in Steve’s future, as per our leader.

                  I would be happy if the writers allow the break to be on Lynn’s terms, but it is more likely she will be hung out to dry.with just an offhand reference to explain it.


                  1. Tbh, I think a quick “oh, btw, me and Lynn broke up” dropped in the middle of a carguement while on a high speed chase would be ample. I personally don’t need or care to know why. I hope they don’t do the whole broken hearted Steve because I hate to see Steve sad 💔


  11. Mark me down for #teamIDontCareaboutDannyslovelife and #teamwhenarewefinallygettingaroundtoMcRoll?. Be sure to wake me for that! Not a tan shirt fan but love the zippers. Remember that kid’s toy with the zippers, buttons and snaps? McG in those pants is the adult version

  12. I would like to weigh in on the tan shirt controversy. (I won’t touch the zipper comments. LOL) It is my least favorite look, but then, I am not so crazy about the plaid thing either. Just give me McG in shades of blue and I am a happy camper.

    The only other “person” who looks better in blue is McBear . He owns the color. I am sure he’d be happy to tell you that too.

    1. Mama, I can tell you McBear looks stunning in everything and without everything. Cloths, liver…. He does not need no stinking liver. Just a band aid and that’s it.
      Oh how I miss him and his adventures. That is sooo weird. I mean, he isn’t even a real person… or is he? A bearson.


      1. I totally understand what you mean. He’s a two foot tall ball of fire and I think he is real. (I’ve never seen him without his tighty whities because, frankly, I think his aunties are a little uptight when it comes to his self expression and/or his obvious desire to streak.

        Not that I am criticizing how his auntie relatives want to raise McBear but……………..I’d let him do whatever he wants, whenever he wants and anyway he wants.

        He’s too cool to bother about a liver.


  13. Looks like PL will have a season 8 to drag out storylines and mess with us. CBS has announced H 5-0’s renewal. One more year of Alex/Steve for us to enjoy. We shall see what happens after that.
