Hawaii Five-0 Spoilers: The Return of McGarrett and More!

at . Comments

Following the news that Alex O'Loughlin would be checking into rehab to deal with a reliance on prescription pain pills, many Hawaii Five-0 fans are naturally wondering just how long we'll go without Steve McGarrett on our small screens.

Fortunately, William Keck of TV Guide Magazine has the answer.

McGarrett on the Prowl

O'Loughlin will only be absent from one full Hawaii Five-0 episode, as outlined below in a rundown of what viewers can expect over the final set of season two installments:

April 9: McGarrett appears briefly, leaving a letter to Danno explaining that he's "off to find the real Shelburne," executive producer Peter Lenkov says.

April 30: It's the NCIS: Los Angeles crossover - with Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J, but without any sighting of O'Loughlin as McGarrett.

May 7: McGarrett is back! And he'll have tossed Wo-Fat in prison during his time away.

May 14: On the Hawaii Five-0 season finale, viewers will witness a major death, along with the returns of Terry O'Quinn, Tom Sizemore and William Baldwin.


Well lenkov just answered some fans questions about alex. He said alex is doing great and he thanked the fans for their support. The person who tweeted said the alex fans feel left out and just want to know alex is okay and that an answer would be nice for his fans. I guess that was a good way to ask since it got lenkov to respond which is not easy to do. Welcome back alex!


@lena...you are?? I will have to go there. I did not know you were a mod. You are dedicated to H50!! :) I think this week we will get an alex pic but it does seem they are being protective of him so if that is the case then I know I have to it, whatever is best for him. I know he is super private in general. But I do miss seeing pics of him on set though. May cannot come soon enough!


Deal! we keep talking about H5O during the summer!!! I have more shows I am talk about on forums but H5O is my favorite by far I am even a moderater on the H5O board on Fan Forum :) I am addicted to the show I confess LOL I don't expect to see a pic from Alex tonight anymore maybe tomorrow fingers crossed!


@lena...we will def stay in touch over the summer. We can post here and PM each other if we find out anything new about H50 or especially about alex. There really is something special about H50.It is the only show I talk about online too. That says it all. Lenkov is pretty tight lipped about alex but the guy who asked him if alex was around is one of lenkovs frequent tweeters and he usually does respond to him. So we shall see. I even went to the other guys twitter account to see if lenkov privately gave him an answer, but nope. I should have been a detective.:) We know though that even if he is not on set today that he is in this episode. They are shooting at Mcgs home so no worries.


@kaydee....I am a new AOL fan just from catching H50 over the summer. I did not even see the first season until this summer and then after catching an episode I immediately ordered the whole season. It caught me that fast. So I may be fairly new as a alex fan but I am making up for it by my enthusiasm for the man. ha ha!! I have never seen moonlight or three rivers. I did watch oyster farmer though. But I have seen clips of those shows on youtube. I will watch them over the summer to get more alex in. :) It is gonna be a long summer without H50. :) I wanted to rent the back up plan but I seriously cannot tolerate JLO. I find her annoying. But I did hear he was really good in it. Maybe I will rent it and mute her.:)


@amazingalex.... I hope Peter will give us a answer soon because he will leave Hawaii this afternoon. I love H5O for me the best TV show there is and I like NCIS LA but I never go so deep in it, that I need to discuss pics or episodes on forum while I can talk about H5O the whole day! LOL Girls we need to stay in touch over the summer so we can squeezzz over every BTS they show us. and so we can discuss also what could happend in the season premiere!!


@amazingalex - yes, pm please (like I'd forget you!!) and I'll do the same. and let me know what PL says about our guy! I agree, H50 is the absolute best, and for me NCIS LA is second (I love both LL and Chris but not like I love Alex)- but you're right the family feeling is def missing. Have you ever seen Moonlight or 3 Rivers both w/AOL? I first found AOL in Moonlight, then in 3 Rivers. Check them out if you don't already own them.


@kaydee..No they are no mcdanno that is for sure. I thought the cast was good but I love the cast on H50. No one compares, there is just something natural and not forced with them and I love that they are like a small family. I dont know that I would watch ncis la after the crossover but it is a nice show. It takes alot to get me to follow a show religiously. I did not even think of how we will all keep in touch over the summer, I think we could still post here. I will throw you some PM's so you dont forget me kaydee, :) My dvd player is gonna get alot of use watching season 1. I have not watched it in a while just so I can watch over the summer. Someone asked Lenkov if alex is on set, I am waiting to see if he answers.


@martinelli - thanks! @amazingalex - Sam & G need lessons from McDanno on proper carguments - they're not as funny or as endearing! I'm looking forward to the Max episode. Steve wrote Danny a "Dear Danno" letter and we all know that's going to freak Danno out. Should be another great ep (but aren't they all). I can't believe the season's (almost) over - only a few new epis to go! Man, I (all of us) will be going through some huge H50 withdrawal. I have the 1 season dvd and season 2 dvr'd - hope it's enough! Oh oh, where shall we blog, can we still blog here?? Oh no!!


They just posted that today is the first day of shooting 2.22. Soooo happy!! BTS pics should be not too far behind.
