Get your protein powder, your workout gear, plenty of water, and whatever else people use to go to the gym. As you can probably guess, we don’t spend too much time pumping iron at such an establishment (luckily one of our CarterMatt contributors, Jason Prager, lives at the gym and helps to clue us in on the latest techniques for leg day) — but Hawaii Five-0 will be venturing there for the next new episode! You’re just going to have to wait a little while to see it.

The not-so-great news is that Steve McGarrett and the rest of the crew will be taking a break next week; envision them surfing under the Oahu sun, living their best life and basking in this show’s sunny idealism. Despite all of the crime, this is somehow a world we still wanna be a part of! Rest assured, the break won’t be long — the series will be back on CBS on Friday, March 8 at the normal timeslot of 9:00 p.m. Eastern. There’s no double-episode this time around like there was this week; things are going back to normal for the Ohana.
Now let’s get back to the gym … which is not a phrase we would probably ever say in any every day conversation. The synopsis for season 9 episode 18 offers up a little bit of info as to why we’re going there (spoiler alert, it’s for a crime), and then also some of what’s going on for Danny and Steve:
“Ai no i ka ‘ape he mane’o no ko ka nuku” – Tani and Junior go undercover at a gym to track down a deadly batch of steroids that’s killing users, before the drugs claim any more victims. Also, Danny and MacGarrett sub as bodyguards for Danny’s high maintenance ex-mother-in-law, Amanda Savage (Joan Collins), a wildly famous romance novelist with whom he has never gotten along, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, March 8 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
There’s a good chance you may have heard about Collins’ guest spot before tonight — we wrote about it a little while back — and obviously, there will be some sort of fun with that. There’s probably a long list of about 2,000 things that get under Danny Williams’ skin somewhere out there, and we fully believe with the utmost confidence that his former mother-in-law liking Steve more than him is going to be up there. How in the world could it not? This is a case sure to drive Danny up the wall every single second he is a part of it. By the way, driving Danny up the wall = almost constant entertainment for CarterMatt. We’re here for all the carguments and the bickering … though it is nice to get some sentimental moments where the walls come down and we remember that even through the chaos, Steve and Danny really care about each other.
This episode should prove to be worth the wait — in getting back to the gym one last time (yep, still telling that joke), what does going undercover at a gym really look like? Is it doing five pushups and taking a picture for your Instagram fab fit fun box sponsorship?
