Confirming our suspicions of a few weeks ago, William Keck reports that Taryn Manning will be returning to Hawaii Five-0 to reprise her role of Mary McGarrett. At the end of last season, Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) had just discovered that the mother he’d believed to be dead for many years, was very much alive, setting up the story line for some intense family drama in Season 3.
From TV Guide
Steve McGarrett’s happy family reunion is expanding. With his presumed dead mother Doris returning in Hawaii Five-0‘s season premiere (with Chicago Hope vet Christine Lahti in the role), sister Mary Ann won’t be far behind.
In an episode slated to air later this fall, actress Taryn Manningwill return to the islands as Steve’s kid sis to see for her own eyes that mama McG is in fact among the living. I’m hearing that both Steve and Mary Ann will have lots of questions for their mother, who faked her own death 20 years earlier.
Manning was originally announced as a series regular when the series premiered in 2010, but for story reasons the character was sent back to the mainland. She did, however, reprise the role in one Season 2 episode.
Might there be more McGarrett children out there? That remains to be seen. Lahti tells me she’s not quite sure what Doris was up to during her missing years. And online speculators continue to guess that Steve’s nemesis Wo-Fat may turn out to be Steve’s half-brother. Wouldn’t that be a twist?

I need some Hawaii Five-0 spoilers! — Will
ADAM: Like sharks? What about pirates? Well, today’s your lucky day! I hear both will figure largely in an episode about dangerous boat-jackings and a Danno-McGarrett deep-sea fishing trip that goes awry.
One last teaser directly from the show’s executive producer:

Please allow me just a quick fangirl moment; Holy cow, Ed Asner tweeted me. For the second time. OK, shake it off girl, and get back to the business at hand.
You may recall the recent TV Guide item reporting that Ed Asner would be returning to Hawaii Five-0 for Season 3. This was fortified when Mr. Asner tweeted that he would soon be returning to the islands. Last week, Five-0 staff writer Joe Halpin arrived in Honolulu, and as I mentioned in a recent update, that means he wrote the episode that is currently being filmed. I asked Joe who was in the director’s chair, and he said that it was his good friend Fred Toye. Looking at Fred’s recent resume, I saw that he directed last season’s “Kālele,” which you may remember as the “August March” episode, and Joe penned that script as well. See where I’m going with this? Hoping for confirmation that this is the highly anticipated return of August March, I tweeted the television legend to see if I could get more information.
Is anyone else happy about this news?
When we last saw August March, we discovered that he wasn’t a contrite, rehabilitated criminal who’d paid his debt to society, but instead, a cold blooded killer who was still very much in the game. We know that McGarrett usually gets his man, and we certainly don’t want a murderer to get away with his crime, but darn, who wants to see Ed Asner arrested, or worse, killed? Ohhhhhh, Mr. Grant!

Hawaii Five-0 garnered just the one Emmy nod for Jeff Cadiente in Stunt Coordination, but we’ll take it! It’s hard out there for a network television show. Cadiente. the superbly talented stunt maestro, got the nod for episode 203, “Kame’e,” in which Steve McGarrett went airborne to rescue an unconscious man who’d been pushed from a plane. It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Superseal!!

Last Friday, Hawaii Five-0 producer Peter Lenkov (@PLenkov) tweeted a photo of a surfboard along with the words, “Are those bullet holes in the surfboard? “ Now, we have some pictures taken on set of Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) with the same surfboard. I guess Friday the 13th turned out to be a very lucky day for fans. Thanks to Hawaii-five-o-fans.com for the find. We also see Peter in the background, sporting a big smile. It’s great to see a guy who enjoys his job.

Season 3 of Hawaii Five-0 is more than two months away, but devoted fans can still feed their habit over the summer months. Here’s the U.S. broadcast schedule for the next few weeks:
Monday, July 23: “Mai Ka Wā Kahiko” (Out of the Past) Remembered by many as the “Steve and Lori go jogging” episode. In time-honored Hollywood tradition, the clumsy woman (Lori) twists her ankle and must be carried to safety by the (male) hero, resulting in a spate of strenuous eye-rolling by feminists across the nation. But truly, this is an excellent Danno-centric episode, showcasing Scott Caan. We find the Jersey-ite at the mercy of a sleazy former partner, played with creepy efficiency by Peter Greene. Caan manages to draw the viewer into Danny Williams’ agony when he’s forced into an impossible situation. If there’s one thing that Five-0 viewers have learned, it’s that you just don’t mess with “Monkey.”
Saturday, July 28 (special time) : “Mea Makamae” (Treasure) Bare-chested Steve diving for sunken treasure and an appearance by Patty Duke. See our review here.
Monday, July 30: “I Helu Pū” (The Reckoning) In this episode we get the cast dressed to the nines in formal-wear, Danny and Steven trying to outbid each other at an auction, and the end of the line for Lori Weston.
Monday, August 6: ”Ma’ema’e” (Clean) A volleyball coach is murdered and McGarrett and Fryer go toe-to-toe as the head of Internal Affairs places Kono in a precarious position.

Although we still haven’t received word from CBS as to whether or not there will be a Sunset On the Beach premiere for Hawaii Five-0 this year, we have gleaned a few tidbits of other information in week 1 of production. According to Tannya Joaquin’s (Hawaii News Now) Facebook page, the first episode of the year will have our Five-0 team facing a “one-two punch” of bad guys. Although they have different beefs with our heroes, villains Wo Fat, (Iron Chef Chairman Mark Dacascos) and Frank Delano (William Baldwin) are on hand to open the season, along with Delano’s current mayhem-master, “Toothpick” (Karl Herlinger).
For the fans who have been lobbying Hawaii Five-0 executive producer Peter Lenkov to write McGarrett’s sister “Mary” into another episode, it looks like that just may be a possibility. Taryn Manning (@TarynManning) was asked by a fan as to what her upcoming plans were in September, to which the actress responded by tweeting, “Hawaii!!” Although Taryn didn’t specifically say that the trip to the islands was for the show, it certainly makes sense that Mary would be returning now that it’s been revealed that her mother is still alive, so keep your fingers crossed…
Thanks to a photo tweeted by Peter Lenkov, we know that the resurrected Doris McGarrett returns to Hawaii in episode 301. The photo of a plane with the passenger stairs down was accompanied by the tweet, “Momma McG has returned home… ” We do love it when Peter is in Hawaii because he’s so generous in sharing behind the scenes pictures with us.
One final note, staff writer Joe Halpin tweeted today that he’s on his way to Hawaii which means that he’s the one who penned episode 302. Joe gave us some great storylines last year, so this should be good!

When we last saw August March slipping away into the night on Hawaii Five-0 , we knew he had to return because Steve McGarrett always gets his man. Sure enough, Ed Asner recently tweeted (and can I just say how awesome it is that he’s on twitter?) that he would be heading back to the show. Now we have a few more details, compliments of TV Guide.

Got any Hawaii Five-0 scoop not related to McGarrett’s mom? — Melissa
ADAM: You mean you don’t want to know that McGarrett’s recently MIA galpal Catherine shamelessly flirts with a witness protection agent to get details on Mama McGarrett’s whereabouts? OK, fine: I also hear that Ed Asner’s art collector/smuggler August March will be back this season. McGarrett will call on him when a band of armed thieves knock over a years-old art gallery and make off with a couple of priceless paintings. However, the simple heist eventually gives way to a kidnapping, a hostage situation and a deadly shootout.

Hawaii Five-0 heaven continues into day 2 thanks to photos from Craig Kojima and the Star Advertiser. Based on the smiles of the participants, the blessing of Season 3 for the CBS show appears to have been an event enjoyed by all. Some fans have inquired about the absence of cast members Scott Caan and Grace Park, but there was nothing amiss. Scott was flying in from California after the closing of his play “No Way Around But Through,” and Grace was not scheduled to shoot on opening day. She did, however, decide to stop by towards the end of the ceremony.
