Season 7 of the American police procedural remake, “Hawaii Five-0” is just several days away and rumors are starting to heat up about the level up in action for the team of law enforcers led by Commander Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin). After a previous teaser image revealed that McGarrett is once again putting his life at risk, the newest information to come out is about the second episode scheduled to air on Sept. 30.
Per Cartermatt, the episode will be titled “No ke ali’i wahine a me ka ‘aina” and has the following synopsis:
“Five-0 must work with rogue MI-6 agent Harry Langford (guest star Chris Vance) to find a terrorist planning to cause nuclear reactors across Europe to meltdown. Also, McGarrett and Danny ask retired FBI profiler Alicia Brown (guest star Claire Forlani) to help them find their serial killer vigilante.”
Judging by how the writers of the show are proceeding with the new season, it looks like fans of “Hawaii Five-0” will be treated to an increasing number of guest stars with major roles in the episodes they’re appearing in. The synopsis of the second episode is proof of that, with Chris Vance and Claire Forlani getting their respective shares of the limelight in the Hawaiian tropics.
Also, Movie News Guide reports that McGarrett’s ex-girlfriend, Catherine Rollins (Michelle Borth) will be rejoining the cast of “Hawaii Five-0” in the new season, although it isn’t completely clear if she’s going to be a regular or will instead have a recurring role. But one thing is certain though she will no longer be reigniting her romance with McGarrett.
Going back to episode 2, Spoiler TV notes that Agent Langford will be the one who will seek the help of the team to stop a terrorist from playing with nuclear reactors that could devastate Europe, but in the process, they will have to enlist the help of another expert, this time an ex-FBI profiler in Brown, to find a vigilante serial killer on the loose on the islands.
Now that’s more than enough action for the first couple of episodes, right?
Season 7 of “Hawaii Five-0” airs on Sept. 23 on CBS.
