Friday night’s new episode of “Hawaii Five-0” is right around the corner, and based on some of the latest video footage we have in the sneak peeks below, it definitely looks as though we’re going to have a mixture of something new and something completely familiar.
Let’s start with an appearance from Kanya Sesser. In real life, she’s become quite an inspiration as a model, surfer, and adventurer despite being born without legs. On the show, she is playing the part of a former surfer competitor of Kono’s who is now living as a disabled and homeless war veteran. You can see in the first sneak peek alongside Grace Park’s Kono that she is quite the surfer, and with that inspirational music in the background, this is meant to give you that never-say-die attitude and then some. It’s effective.
The second clip featuring Sesser, meanwhile, is a fun little scene between her and Kono where the two reflect on their shared past, and we also learn that she still has plenty of fans dating back from her surfing days. If someone is coming up to at a shrimp shack wanting an autograph, and they happen to own said shrimp shack, it’s kind of a big deal.
As for the final sneak peek that we’ve got for you (we’re presenting them slightly out of order, since that seems to make the most sense for story reasons), you can see more of a classic Danny / McGarrett chase scene complete with some witty dialogue, and further evidence that despite needing a liver transplant to save his life not all that long ago, Steve is still out there doing crazy stuff.
Dig these sneak peeks? Rest assured we’ll be back tomorrow at this link to give you a full review of everything that goes down.
