Hawaii Five-0 season 10 episode 7 is arguably going to be one of the biggest episodes of the entire series for one Alex O’Loughlin. How so? Not only is he returning to the director’s chair for it, but he also just so happened to pen the script! We know from speaking with executive producer Peter M. Lenkov that this stems from an idea that Alex had for a story, and it was also filmed somewhere other than Hawaii — a rarity for this show.
As a matter of fact, this is an episode that was actually filmed before any other one was this season! That made it easier to shoot in Los Angeles before heading out to Hawaii, and we’re sure that it also helped Alex as a director to have that added bit of prep time thrown in.
Just in case all of this wasn’t exciting enough for you, know this — we’re looking at an episode here that is also featuring an appearance from Christine Lahti as McGarrett’s mother.
Below, CarterMatt has the official Hawaii Five-0 season 10 episode 7 synopsis with some other news as to what’s coming up next:
“Ka ‘i’o” – When the CIA informs McGarrett that his mother has gone rogue on her undercover mission and may have killed her partner, Steve goes solo to Mexico to bring her home and prove her innocence, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Nov. 8 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
So clearly, this episode is going to feature a lot of the oh-so-challenging situation of Alex having to direct himself, and that’s probably going to be even harder since he won’t be surrounded by a familiar environment. We have to imagine that this was a challenging episode to pull off, but it’s probably going to be immensely rewarding. The fact that it’s airing in November sweeps is, at least to us, a clear sign that CBS is proud of it and it should do rather well when it comes to getting some attention.
Come this Friday, it’s possible we’ll even get a small dose of footage for it following that new episode!
