If you’re a ‘Hawaii Five-0’ fan and you’ve been anxiously awaiting for the return of the hit CBS reboot, then you’re not going to like me very much, because I just screened the Season 4 premiere.
That’s right, I was lucky enough to watch the first episode of the season, and let me tell you the series hasn’t lost its touch on action or badassness. The premiere was filled with stunts-galore, a ‘Lost’ reunion, the resurrection of an old ‘Five-0’ character and of course, another Wo Fat mystery.
If you recall, last season left us with Kono escaping Hawaii with Adam, after he killed his brother who was working with the dangerous Yakuza. Danny and his girlfriend, Gabby, were reunited. After Kono’s departure, poor Chin was left all alone, but he did end up calling Leilani, played by the stunning Lindsay Price. Once again, Steve was left wondering why his mother, Doris, went to see Wo Fat and why she continues to keep secrets.
Now, I can’t reveal spoilers, nor would I want to ruin the episode for you, but I am able to divulge some scoop to hold you over until the episode airs.
Here you go:
-The episode picks up where it left off with Steve questioning Wo Fat in prison about Doris’ visit, but then the two are interrupted by a group -- referred to as “they” by Wo Fat -- who are there to kill Wo Fat. We do find out who “they” are.
-For those worried we wouldn’t see Kono again, don’t fret, because we see her with Adam on the ship taking them to a secret location.
-We get our first glimpse of Steve without his shirt.
-Chi McBride makes his debut as SWAT Captain Lou Grover, who originated in the 1968 series.
-We see a ‘Lost’ reunion between Daniel Dae Kim and Henry Ian Cusick, who pops up as baddie Ernesto.
-There’s a hostage situation, but there’s more to it than meets the eye.
-Catherine has car trouble, which leads to even more trouble.
-We get to observe a crazy helicopter stunt.
-The reason behind Doris’ visit to Wo Fat may or may not be revealed.
-Steve’s last line of the episode will either shock you or confirm suspicions viewers have had all along.
‘Hawaii Five-0’ premieres Friday, Sept. 27 at 9/8c.
