The fate of some 'Hawaii Five-O' favorites is up in the air for the summer. Fans know that Steve McGarrett may be facing an enemy even more wicked than Wo Fat as he tackles radiation poisoning. Courage will surely see the Lt. Commander through, but the star may be looking to further horizons. #Alex O'Loughlincandidly divulged last fall that Season 8 would be his personal sayonara from the island. That’s the reason why fans should truly celebrate each and every coming on-screen second with the Australian star who truly feels the “ohana” of Hawaii as home after years of raising his family on Oahu.

Scott modifies his shooting time to allow mainland visitation in his schedule. Continue reading
