Episode Written and Directed by Series Star Alex O’Loughlin
“Ka ‘i’o” – When the CIA informs McGarrett that his mother has gone rogue on her undercover mission and may have killed her partner, Steve goes solo to Mexico to bring her home and prove her innocence, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Nov. 8 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
(“Ka ‘i’o” is Hawaiian for “DNA”)
I am sure this will be an awesome, but very sad episode.
“A ‘ohe pau ka ‘ike I ka hālau ho’okahi” – McGarrett and the team investigate when a deadly hit-and-run involves a driverless car carrying heroin, and what could be a new means for delivering drugs. Also, Tani and Quinn are stuck with a pair of YouTubers (comedy duo Tom Allen and John Parr) who are brought on a ride-along with Five-0, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Nov. 1 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
(“A ‘ohe pau ka ‘ike I ka hālau ho’okahi” is Hawaiian for “All knowledge is not learned in just one school”)
OK, people, I think the time has come to talk about the elephant in the room. Danny.
What is your take on where they are going with the character? Have been going for quite a few years.
Personally, I think the character had potential in the very beginning. But his behavior and his constant negativity and calling Steve names got old really quickly. I didn’t like that, and I failed to see the great detective in him. I think they failed to portray him like one.
And in later years he just got nastier and nastier. In 3.15, Hookman, he was called “a nasty human being”. And not by one of the bad guys. I think that hits the nail on the head. That is what Danny has become to me, a nasty human being. A person I wouldn’t want to spend any amount of time with.
And quite frankly, I think the show benefits greatly from his absence. It feels more rounded, smoother and way more relaxed.
So, what is your take on the character? Please remember, this discussion is about the character. At a later point this season we will have discussion posts about various actors. But please remember to separate the actor from the character.
Five-0 investigates when a plan that mysteriously crashed into the Pacific in the ‘80s is found, but with a recently murdered scuba diver inside. Also, as McGarrett and Quinn zero in on who planted the bomb in his garage, and he formally asks her to join Five-0, she is arrested for money laundering.

“He ‘oi‘o kuhihewa; he kākā ola i ‘ike ‘ia e ka makaulā” – It’s Halloween and Five-0 investigates a home invasion turned deadly after a dangerous “monster” escapes from the basement. Also, Max (Masi Oka) returns to Oahu with a very special guest, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Oct. 25 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
(“He ‘oi‘o kuhihewa; he kākā ola i ‘ike ‘ia e ka makaulā” is Hawaiian for “Don’t blame ghosts and spirits for one’s troubles; a human is responsible”)
Looking forward to see Max again. And it looks like one detective is missing again.
