RelatedHawaii Five-0′s Alex O’Loughlin Reflects on 150 Episodes, Hints at His Exit Plan
Crashing McGarrett’s cozy home-cooked dinner date with Lynn, Catherine Rollins (played by Michelle Borth) stormed into the picture to deliver the news that Doris had been captured and imprisoned at a CIA black site in Morocco, in the course of trying to spring Wo Fat’s father.
Alex O’Loughlin has led the charge as Steve McGarrett since the show’s 2010 debut, and is taking a rare moment of introspection on the CBS action drama’s prolonged success.
“There’s something to be said about the alchemy that happens, that’s there with every successful, long-running anything. If that doesn’t happen, it doesn’t happen,” the 40-year-old star tells Et of reaching the milestone in the seventh season. “We’re all very lucky that the chemistry, that the X factor was in there however it manifested itself because without that, we’re just a lot of hard work to not necessarily this end.”
In Friday’s landmark episode, a romantic dinner between McGarrett and his girlfriend, Lynn (Sarah Carter), is unceremoniously interrupted by his former love, Catherine (Michelle Borth), who abruptly vanished in season six. After learning

The set-up: Having skipped out on Steve for top-secretive reasons at the start of Season 6, Catherine resurfaces from out of the blue with news of Doris’ capture and imprisonment at a CIA black site. Alas, Catherine drops this bombshell right in the midst of her ex’s very cozy evening
As H50 showrunner Peter M. Lenkov first told TVLine of the milestone episode, which airs early in Season 7 (premiering Friday, Sept. 23), “We’re doing a story involving [Doris McGarrett], trying to wrap the Mom/Wo Fat saga…. It’s a big mythology episode.”
To that end, not only will Christine Lahti return as Doris, and Sung Kang (also pictured above) as Wo Fat’s father, but both Borth (as Steve’s almost-fiancee Catherine Rollins) and Sarah Carter (reprising

While promoting his new “I Don’t Know” concert tour on the NBC morning program, Buffet — who recurs on H50 as helicopter pilot Frank Bama — repeatedly referred to the CBS drama’s upcoming Season 7 as “the last season,” and thus fretted over his character’s fate.

There’s a beauty in the way that Carchietta (and co-writers Sage Bannick/Chris Sivertson/Amelia Yokel) balance pretty-in-pink teenage crushing with warm, comforting relationship notes, with the added bonus of being a twisted obsession thriller. Because that’s what teenage wilds are all about, right? Hormones, brash decisions, devoted love, thoughts of independence, and the truly dangerous cocktail those emotional factors form – something a bartender might call “Your Chaotic Childhood.” Carchietta understands this insanity, and leads viewers on a sensual journey with a wicked sense of danger. This is a story about love, and the crazy fucking shit we do in its name.

The pair start off as friends, but over time their relationship evolves into something more intimate than sleepover buddies, and we see

Since I had the chance to catch both of these films back in January, I decided it wouldn’t be fair to include them here in my preview piece (however, genre fans attending SXSW should definitely check out both films during the fest, as they are equally incredible).]
