Hawaii Five-0 Casts Sarah Carter as Steve's GF — What About Catherine?

On the heels of Falling Skies airing its series finale, Sarah Carter has booked a recurring arc on CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 — in a role that casts a pall on a certain island romance.

Our sister site Deadline reports that Carter will play Lynn, a nature enthusiast who stumbles upon some trouble whilst on an adventurous date with Alex O’Loughlin’s Steve McGarrett.

That, of course, raises questions about how things will (or won’t) progress for Steve and Catherine (played by Michelle Borth), who had a warmish if awkward reunion in the Season 5 finale, when she returned to Hawaii after bailing on her love a year prior to fight the good fight in Afghanistan.

“We play that [Steve/Catherine] uncertainty in the first couple episodes,” Five-0 showrunner Peter M. Lenkov told TVLine during our Fall Preview Q&A. He added: “There’s a big change that’s going to happen in their relationship.”

Carter’s previous TV credits include DirecTV’s Rogue, CSI: NY, Dirty Sexy Money and Shark.

Hawaii Five-0 opens its new season on Friday, Sept. 25.
