YOU MIGHT NOT LIKE WHAT YOU FIND – From the sound of things, Steve’s Season 1 noodle house conversation with Wo Fat will come back to haunt him.

The latest (03 June 2013) issue of TV Guide includes a short piece from William Keck that is sure to shake the fandom beehive.
Viewers have been waiting for months for Doris McGarrett (Christine Lahti) to come clean to son Steve (Alex O’Loughlin) about her connection to Wo Fat (Mark Dacascos). While Doris’s confession was cut short, the season finale gave the impression that Steve would get the answers he’s looking for, even if the answers have to come from Wo Fat.
Keck’s comments — and exec. producer Peter Lenkov’s — are sure to stir up controversy and lively discussion. (Excerpt below is from the June 3rd issue’s IN THE NEWS column).
“HAWAII FIVE-0 — It seemed to be Kono’s swan song as McGarrett’s mom, Doris (Christine Lahti), offered to take Kono (Grace Park) and her fugitive lover into hiding. But executive producer Peter Lenkov says Kono isn’t leaving for good. ‘Her departure is all part of a big story arc we have planned.’ As for Doris, it appears fans’ prediction that she’s also Wo Fat’s mon is true, even though she was interrupted before confessing the truth to Steve (Alex O’Loughlin). But don’t jump to conclusions, Lenkov cautions: ‘Being obvious is boring.’ — William Keck“

Kono (Grace Park) and Adam (Ian Anthony Dale) share a tender moment in the season finale episode, “Aloha. Malama Pono.”

Ian Anthony Dale, who has played Yakuza heir and Kono love interest Adam Noshimuri for two seasons, has signed on for TNT’s new drama pilot, “Murder In The First.”
According to Deadline TV, Dale will play series regular Lt. Jim Koto, “a no-nonsense homicide police lieutenant with movie star good looks…”
What will this mean for Five-0′s star-crossed lovers Kono Kalakaua (Grace Park) and Adam Noshimuri? While a lot will depend on whether “Murder In The First” is picked up or not, a full-time role on another show doesn’t necessarily spell doom for Adam. Time will tell.
Better yet, Ian Anthony Dale will tell, courtesy of his Twitter account.
“Don’t worry my
#H50 fam. You haven’t seen the last of Adam Noshimuri.”

Ian Anthony Dale Joins TNT’s ‘Murder’, Aaron Hill Added To ABC Family’s ‘Twisted’
By NELLIE ANDREEVA | Friday May 24, 2013 @ 11:53am PDT
Ian Anthony Dale (The Hangover, NBC’s The Event) has joined the cast of TNT’s drama pilot Murder In The First as a series regular. Co-created by Steven Bochco and Eric Lodal, the project is a murder mystery that centers on San Fransisco PD homicide detectives Terry Seagrave (Taye Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Kathleen Robertson), as they take on a case that seems more like a maze. Dale will play Lieutenant Jim Koto, a no-nonsense homicide police lieutenant with movie star good looks who is Hildy and Terry’s superior. The actor, repped by A Management, Kohner Agency and Derek Kroeger, is recurring on CBS’ a Hawaii Five-O as Adam Noshimuri, son to head of the Yakuza and boyfriend of Five-O officer Kono Kalakaua (Grace Park).

Based on the latest high-octane promo for Hawaii Five-0′s season finale, “All for one and one for all” should be the unofficial task-force motto. Kono (Grace Park) may be in dire straits, but her team has her back.

As the CIA tasks Five-0 with finding a dangerous killer loose on the island, Kono goes on the run for a murder she did not commit. Meanwhile, McGarrett’s prison visit to Wo Fat ends with a shocking discovery, on the third season finale of Hawaii Five-0 airing Monday at 10/9c. Christine Lahti, Ian Anthony Dale, Daniel Henney and Autumn Reeser guest star.

Weekend Extra: Vancouver’s Grace Park arresting in Hawaii Five-O
By Mark Leiren-Young, Special to The Sun — May 17, 2013 1:07 PM
Honolulu – As Hawaii Five-O prepares to wrap its third hit season, Vancouver’s Grace Park is almost as famous a fixture in Honolulu as the landmarks that flash on the screen in the show’s opening credits in sync with the best TV theme music of all time.
Park has chosen an isolated Honolulu hotel to meet with The Vancouver Sun, a place where no one will make a fuss over her. But the taxi drivers and hotel staff are still buzzing as she passes by dressed in a casual outfit: “Isn’t that … Yes, it is … that’s Kono.”
Kono Kalakaua, Park’s onscreen alter-ego, is the only female member of the elite Five O police squad that keeps the televised version of Hawaii safe from global organized crime lords with a tendency to arrive on the island and blow a lot of things up, because huge explosions look kinda awesome with a tropical backdrop and sunsets the colour of overripe papayas.
While Kono is the tech expert, splitting geek duties with her cousin Chin Ho Kelly (Lost’s Daniel Dae Kim), she’s also a surfer who’s constantly kicking bad guy butt. And when someone kidnaps her — and everyone on the squad has been kidnapped at least once over the past three years — she generally gets to defend her own honour. While her friends always find her, “they always come a beat late and it’s handled,” says Park. “And I think that’s sort of the signature of the show.”
In the Season 3 finale, airing May 20 on Global TV at 10 p.m., Kono is on the run to avoid being arrested for a murder viewers are pretty sure she didn’t commit. And chances are she’ll be beating up at least a few bad guys while she’s running.

With the CBS Fall 2013 Upfronts now under way in New York, the new Fall schedule has been announced.
Hawaii Five-0 will move from its current 10:00pm Monday night berth into a 9:00pm Friday night slot between Undercover Boss and Blue Bloods. This will make the summer hiatus move to Friday nights permanent. (Five-0 will be moved to Fridays as of June 24th, when “Under The Dome” starts its limited run in Five-0′s old timeslot).
The CBS press release excerpted below describes the move in the following terms:
“On Friday, CBS moves an established drama to the middle of the lineup to strengthen a winning night. At 8:00 PM, the Emmy Award-winning and time period leader UNDERCOVER BOSS returns. The popular drama HAWAII FIVE-0 establishes a new beachhead at 9:00 PM, leading perfectly into BLUE BLOODS, the top-rated series of the night, at 10:00 PM.”

TV Guide Online’s Mega Buzz column spoke to Exec Producer Peter Lenkov about the season finale, and Lenkov did not disappoint. This season’s “Aloha. Malama Pono” will once again find our four principal characters tackling thorny personal issues. The Grim Reaper may also be lurking about in the background, looking for some poor unfortunate to cut down — a possibility Lenkov hints at here: “The English translation of our finale title is ‘farewell and take care.’ You can take want you want from that.”

Any last bits of scoop on the Hawaii Five-0 finale? — Jessica
ADAM: Like last year, the finale will explore all of the team members’ personal issues separately. “We’re going to touch on some questions we’ve had for a while,” executive producer Peter Lenkov says. “Is there more going on between Wo Fat and Doris than we know? What happened the night Michael Noshimuri took Kono’s gun? … [These] are issues that need resolutions. Some of our characters are going to have to make tough choices.” How tough? By the finale’s end, somebody will likely be dead. “The English translation of our finale title is “farewell and take care. You can take want you want from that,” Lenkov teases.
