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.

“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.

For the first time since Season 2, Alex O’Loughlin, Scott Caan, Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park are all expected to be walking the red carpet!

One of my favourite guest stars from Season 4 is coming back and she’s not alone! Carol Burnett will be returning as McGarrett’s Aunt Deb. You may remember the touching scene where she announced to him that she was to undergo cancer treatment. While receiving chemo, she will meet a man to be played by the legendary Jersey Boy, Franky Valli. The two have a whirlwind romance which will result in her wedding in Hawaii. Sadly, it doesn’t sound like her cancer treatment will be success. “They’re going to have this whirlwind romance, and they’re coming to Hawaii to get married because they realize both of them don’t have much time left,” Peter Lenkov told TV Guide. Be prepared to have your heart strings pulled.

Alex O’Loughlin once again used his star-power for good. On August 16, he attended the Boys and Girls Club of Hawaii’s annual Walk in the Country event. In typical Alex style, he gracious posed with lucky fans at the fundraising luau. You can see more photos from Honolulu Magazine on our Facebook page!
Upon completing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge this past weekend, executive producer Peter Lenkov threw down the gauntlet to his cast. And in true Five-0 fashion, stars Alex O’Loughlin, Daniel Dae Kim, and Jorge Garcia came through for fans, and for the charity. The Ice Bucket Challenge has taken the internet by storm as a fundraiser and awareness generator to help combat ALS, otherwise known as Lou Gerig’s disease. People are dared to dump ice water on their heads as well as donate money to this great cause. So far, the campaign has raised $4 million in two weeks! Visit http://www.alsa.org to donate.
Note: After gamely dumping the freezing slush on themselves, the three actors chose to call out just one person; CBS President and CEO, Les Moonves. We’re happy to report that Moonves took the challenge not long after, and we’re hoping made a hefty donation to the extremely worthy cause.
Executive Producer, Peter Lenkov, clarified the reports that McGarrett will be getting a new love interest in Season 5. Lenkov told TVLine,“Everybody’s selling it as a love interest, but really it’s a friendship.” Friends with benefits, perhaps? He also provided more details about the 100th episode, saying “There really will be no more questions, as to, ‘Are [Steve and Wo fat] related?’ and ‘What is Wo Fat’s relationship with Steve’s mother?’ … That’s all going to come to a head and be resolved.”
Bush from their official website
Mike Gordon of the Star Advertiser announced some big entertainment news for this year’s SOTB. Those attending the Season 5 premiere at Sunset On the Beach are in for quite a treat! The post-grunge rock band, Bush, will be entertaining the beach goers live on stage! I saw them in concert in my *ahem* younger years, and you’re in for a loud, rockin’ time!
Mike also noted that all of the main cast members will be attending the premiere, making it the first time since Season 2 that Scott Caan and Grace Park appear. No doubt the fans who line the red carpet will show their enthusiasm to the shows stars .
