‘Hawaii Five-0’ season 3 spoilers: Meet McGarrett’s mom!

On the September 24 premiere of “Hawaii Five-0,” we are going to see more than just any ordinary guest star — we will have a character who has been out of McGarrett’s life since he was 15 years old in his own mother.

So how is Alex O’Loughlin’s character going to be handle to handle this sudden arrival? Speaking for the first time about her role on the CBS drama to TV Guide, here is what former “Chicago Hope” star Christina Lahti — seen in the photo to the left — had to say about her story:

“She faked her own death to protect her family … Now she’s come back and Steve is shell-shocked. She hasn’t seen Steve since he was 15 and wants his forgiveness.”

We don’t know whether or not Lahti’s character is going to receive any such thing, but what we can say for sure at the moment is that she is going to be appearing in at least four episodes during this upcoming season, and potentially longer depending on whether or not her character is particularly well-received. McGarrett’s sister is also going to be dropping by for a visit, and with all of this in mind it looks as though we could be getting a regular sort of family reunion — though not exactly one of the happy variety considering all of the mixed emotions that are going to be present whenever these characters are around each other.

What do you think are going to be McGarrett’s mother’s intentions when she leaps back into his life this season? We want to hear some of your thoughts below! If you want to check out some more scoop about another big-name TV star who is going to be dropping by early on this season, be sure to follow the link here.
