This is it! The much anticipated 100th episode is finally here! Fans have been treated to teasers from executive producer, Peter Lenkov, for months and now we are getting our first sneak peek at what we can expect this week.
Looks like McGarrett may be experiencing some of the flash-sideways made famous by Lost. Some familiar faces will be returning this week in the forms of Papa McGarrett, Sang Min, Victor Hesse and Jenna Kaye. Based on the sneak peek above, will they only be seen in flashbacks or can we expect something new?
Keep you eyes out for Bush front man Gavin Rossdale. You may remember that Bush rocked Waikiki for Sunset Set on the Beach this year.
For those on Twitter, Mark Dacasco (Wo Fat) will be live tweeting the episode. Follow the #H50 hastag and @Mark_Dacascos during the East Coast airing.
If you haven’t already done so, you may want to rewatch the Season 1 premiere to refresh your memory and to prep for this Friday night!

FIVE-0 INVESTIGATES WHEN THREE FEMALE THIEVES UNKNOWINGLY STEAL SOMETHING DURING A TOUR BUS ROBBERY THAT MAKES THEM A SERIOUS TARGET, ON “HAWAII FIVE-0,” FRIDAY, OCT. 10
“Kanalu Hope Loa” – Five-0 investigates when three female thieves unknowingly steal something during a tour bus robbery that makes them a serious target. Meanwhile, Danny searches for his brother’s hidden millions in order to exchange it for his life, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Oct. 10 (9:00-10:00, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network.
(*Kanalu Hope Loa is Hawaiian for “The Last Break”)
Will there ever be an end to the former Lost stars appearing in Hawaii Five-0? We hope not! This week, William Mapother, the creepy Ethan Rom of The Others from Lost, is reunited with Daniel Dae Kim and Jorge Garcia.
“Ka Makuakāne” – Five-0 investigates when the young daughter of a Navy Seal currently on a top-secret mission is kidnapped. Meanwhile, with his brother’s life on the line, Danny must locate the $18.5 million he owes his captors, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Oct. 3 (9:00-10:00, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
The weather here is getting colder but the weather in Hawaii is hot hot hot! Season 5 of Hawaii Five-0 kicks off on Friday Sept. 26.
Executive Producer, Peter Lenkov, teased Entertainment Weekly with some tidbits about the upcoming season.
EW. Will there be more flashback episodes this season? PL. Yes. We’re doing a big Kono-centric episode that’s going to feature her connection with her mother, her love and affection for the ocean and where she learned to surf. There are a very Kono-centric story lines, but there’s one episode in particular that’s really Kono heavy. It’s a Kono origin story, in a way. There are also some unique flashbacks in the 100th episode, which tie into the current story.
EW. Any chance to see Tony Archer (James Caan) again? PL.We’ve been trying, how’s that?
EW. Is Danny’s brother Matt Williams (Dane Cook) still on the run from the FBI when he returns this season? PL. Yes. That’s a very complicated question, but yes.
There will be much conflict for members of the Five-0 team as the past comes back to haunt many of them. Not only will McGarrett have to answer for his run in with the CIA but he will struggle with Catherine’s departure and with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Exploring how PTSD effects McG is what I am most looking forward to this season. No doubt Alex O’Loughlin will bring his A-game for those scenes. I hope it is a continual arc that progresses throughout the year.
There is no new relationship for McGarrett in the near future but Danno may finally be getting some more female attention. Does this mean his current squeeze is on the way out?
Some past characters may be returning this season according to Lenkov. Doris McGarrett (Christine Lahti), Joe White (Terry O’Quinn) and Danny’s brother (Dane Cook) and Chin Ho’s brother-in-law, Malia’s brother, Gabriel (Christopher Sean) will be continuing in story lines that were left open in past seasons.

Even at a young age, Scott Caan knew he would pursue his creative side. “I really, really, really, really, really did not like going to school, and I didn’t want to do anything that further schooling could lead me to. The idea of graduating and going to college – there wasn’t a future there for me. So, when I was 13, when I was in 9th grade, even 8th grade, I was sort of subconsciously getting my creative mind working,” Caan told The Hundreds during a recent interview.
He started writing rhymes (he avoids saying it was poetry) and mixing them with music from his mom’s karaoke machine. Being a B-boy was his obsession. “Graffiti, breakdancing, I liked everything to do with it,” he said.
It was his pursuit of rap music that eventually lead him to acting. A director saw him on tour with House of Pain and asked him to read for a part. Caan was reluctant at first but reconsidered when he read the script. He eventually got the part. “I pretty much from that point on left music. I felt like with music – I can say this now – I always felt, not that I was fronting, but I was always trying to do something that maybe wasn’t 100% natural for me.” From there, the young rapper joined Playhouse West as an actor and writer. He still returns there as his schedule allows.
When asked about his new book of photography titled Vanity, Caan says, “A lot of these photos [from Vanity] are from a road trip. I drove across country and did a big triple W, and would stop somewhere for only two days and would just shoot what I saw and mess around. And I think in my photographs you can see that it is scattered, it is all over the place.”

Thank you to everyone who has already taken the time to submit something to the fanbook. I have now responded to everyone whose email I have received. If you haven’t had a response then it means I haven’t received the email so please let us know if you think I have missed you!
We still need everyone’s input to make this a rounded experience for all of the cast and crew. I would also really like to hear from local fans in Hawaii as well – especially if you have been part of any of the events that the 5-0 team have done (such as the fan breakfast, charity events etc) please please get in touch!
If there are any artists out there that have done drawings of the cast I would really like to be able to include these in the book – with permission, of course.
Fansites – I would like to include pages for you as well, as you are the fans sources of information – please get in touch with anything you would like to include.
There are 2 weeks until the deadline! Monday 25th August.
Friend of the blog, Undercover Agent Zoe approached us a few weeks ago with a brilliant idea. She told us she’d be on the set of Hawaii Five-0 to watch filming in September, and mentioned that she wished she could share the experience with everyone. She came up with an idea that allows fans to leave a thankful and lasting impression on the cast and crew of our favorite show. I’ll let Zoe explain it all in her own words! Please note, Zoe is handling ALL communications, not 50undercover.com. For all questions and submissions, contact her at the email address below. Now, have fun!!
Calling all H50 fans! Many of you know that earlier in the year that CharityBuzz was auctioning off Hawaii Five-0 set visits to a few lucky winners. My wonderful husband bid and won one of these, so we are heading back to Hawaii to pop on to set! I feel incredibly fortunate, as I know so many fans would simply love the same opportunity. This got me to thinking of how to share the experience with fans worldwide. I thought it might be a nice opportunity for us fans to give something back to the cast and crew, so I thought of creating a Worldwide Fanbook that I can give to the cast and crew when the visit occurs. The premise behind the book is the celebration of 100 completed episodes. This should be a positive experience, and a show of appreciation. Focus on what you DO like about the show and showing your appreciation for that. I will have the final edit on what is included in the printed book. I want to make this clear from the outset that anything inappropriate will not be included. This is not the avenue to declare your dislike of a character, nor is it a suggestion box for your take on where the storyline should go (to cite a few examples). So what I am looking for from you… Name:Nationality:Twitter/Email Contact Info:What can you include (not limited to):
Personal accounts of cast/crew meetings
Stories from SOTB / Fan Meet Ups / Fan Breakfast etc.
How cast/crew have inspired you
Personal message of THANKS J
Personal pics with cast/crew
Favourite Scenes (and why they are so!)
5-0 shrines (you get the idea…)
Email your entries/questions to H50FanBook@gmx.com no later than Monday 25th August. I really do need everyone’s help to make this possible so please share this around and let’s create something special. Thank you! -Undercover Agent Zoe
