Five-0's McGarrett Is Up and Running (Into Trouble?) — Fall TV First Look

Steve McGarrett is back up and at ’em as CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 opens Season 7. But maybe the liver transplant recipient should dial things down juuuust a notch?

In the exclusive first look above, McGarrett (played by Alex O’Loughlin) is going full tilt during a foot chase when things apparently take a turn for the worse — as evidenced by the second photo, below. The setback surely will serve as fodder for Danny (Scott Caan), who no later than their second scene of the season is reminding his partner about the liver he donated.

“There is an arc with Danny trying to get McGarrett to slow down a bit and appreciate the fact that he’s been given a second chance — or fifth chance, maybe sixth, based on all the stuff he’s gone through in the series,” says showrunner Peter M. Lenkov.

With a serial killer-targeting vigilante on the loose, McGarrett is loathe to let up, and yet “he does start to start question his mortality and the choices he’s made,” Lenkov says. “What he’s gone through has definitely had an effect on him.”

    Not good Steve got shot. Good scoop about this episode. Can’t wait for new season to start next month!

  3. Dan says:

    I really can’t wait to see this episode. And Danny nagging Steve… LOVE IT!

    This looks like one time Steve really deserves Danny’s nagging, although I doubt it will be nagging. More of a best friend caring deeply enough to point out the value of taking it easy – a perfect Danno rant!

    I think season seven is going to be just fantastic ! Steve and Danny are now truly blood brothers. Already Steve is hurt in the first episode so we know Danny will be ranting for him to slow down. The bromance will be in full force this season I think! When Steve thinks about his morality I hope Danny will be there to help him. I saw a promo I think that is in the first episode and it shows Steve thanking Danny for the transplant. also our boys tell each other I love you so sweet! Come on September 23rd !!!!!!!

  6. Freakin’ Navy Seal has been getting his ass handed to him for the last 3 seasons. If this how our military warriors are made of, we are in deep doo-doo.

    The bromance is the best part of this show, let’s hope they bring it back full force this season. Their therapy sesions and carguments are the best comic relief. Looks like S7 will have lots of good things happening, Chin is finally happy again, Adam will get out of jail, and Ding Dong, the witch is dead…. Catherine isn’t coming back. What more could you ask for?

  8. Steve and Danny number 1 says:

    Can’t wait for season7 hope it is as great as the other ones hope steve does get into trouble with danny.
