In an interview with TV Line, show runner Peter Lenkov teased that viewers will get to see Danny doing something he has never done before and there will be thrilling scenes to watch for. “McGarrett ends up getting shot, and Danny, who’s never flown a plane before, has to land their plane. The stakes are really big,” he shared.

Talking to TVGuide, “This is really a McGarrett/Danny story, and probably the [highest] stakes that we’ve done between these two guys ever. It puts both of them in a very life-and-death situation that will actually, at the end of it, connect them more than ever. One of them is going to save the other’s life in a huge way,” he added.

The season finale of “Hawaii Five-0” is slated to air on Friday, May 13 starting at 9 P.M. to 11 P.M. EST.
