Is Ian Anthony Dale leaving Hawaii Five-0 season 8? On tonight’s episode, you certainly may have been wondering that question at the end.
Ultimately, the truth here is pretty clear: Eventually, at some point Dale has to leave the show. That’s been clear to us ever since our interview with show executive producer Peter M. Lenkov a little bit earlier this year. Dale is a regular on Salvation and with that in mind, at some point he’s going to need to depart in order to go and work on his other show. He’s a regular over there just like he’s also a regular here. Having both of these shows air on CBS, and having both featuring Lenkov as a producer, is really one of the only reasons why this arrangement worked to begin with.
Now, the question here is whether or not this departure was going to happen tonight. In the early going, it seemed that way and like Adam was ready to leave Hawaii behind in order to go be with Kono on the mainland again. The struggle to stop the local gangs was just too much.
Yet, is he really going to be leaving? That’s the question that the end of the episode tonight asked, mostly because of the fact that his half-sister was found dead in the closing minutes and something seems to be very fishy about this. We do know that Dale will be leaving at some point, but it may not be just yet. (We hope there’s something else, given that this was a pretty abrupt ending otherwise.)
Here’s the good news: Even if Dale leaves now, there’s always a chance that he comes back down the road. Adam remains a beloved member of the Ohana and it was cool that he had such a serialized story this year.
