With Hawaii Five-0 ending, here are 5 things we’ll miss the most

facebooktwitterreddit

Hawaii Five-0 will conclude its ten-season run on April 3, and fans are already mourning the loss. Here’s what we will miss most.

Debuting in 2010, Hawaii Five-0 was the second attempt at rebooting the original Hawaii Five-O series that starred Jack Lord. Viewers took to the chemistry between Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan and began to get invested in all of the characters as well as the weekly doses of crime-solving.

Unfortunately, the beloved show will air its final episode on April 3, 2020, and many fans don’t want to think about Friday nights without Commander Steve McGarrett, his detective pal, Danny Williams, and the Five-0 task force. So much of the series will be missed once it concludes, but there are certain things that stand out, things that made the show a bright light for CBS.

The Bromance

There is no denying the bromance between Steve and Danny. It’s a love/hate relationship that showcases a bond stronger than brothers. Though they annoy one another on a daily basis, these two men have been through tough waters together and are still standing. (Danny even donated a portion of his liver to save Steve’s life!) It’s hard to imagine never getting to see these two bickering again. And speaking of bickering…

Carguments

This word was added to the Urban Dictionary in 2011 because of the many, many disagreements between Steve and Danny that take place in a car, usually while they are on their way to a crime scene or chasing a suspect. They took arguing to a new level. Even when the car was a high speeds, they didn’t cease the back-and-forth, and fans fell in love with it. Now, onto love…

Romance

The characters had their fair share of romances, but some have gained their own fandoms. The chemistry between Steve and Catherine (Michelle Borth) was electric, and even though the pair are no longer together, it doesn’t stop fans from hoping. Just as they hope for Danny and Rachel (Claire van der Boom) who, as a divorced couple, have shown that love doesn’t always end when the marriage does.

Currently, the relationship between Officers Tani Rey (Meaghan Rath) and Junior Reigns (Beulah Koale) has finally culminated in a romance, and fans think it’s about time as it’s been building for the past three seasons. But there isn’t much time left to see this couple get their happily ever after like Captain Lou Grover (Chi McBride) found with his wife, Renee, played by Michelle Hurd.

Captain Lou Grover

When Lou Grover came onto the scene in season four, he wasn’t initially likable, mainly because he disliked Steve. As part of the Honolulu Police Department, Lou wasn’t wild about how Steve bent the rules even though his Five-0 task force badge allowed it. Things changed when Lou’s daughter, Samantha (Paige Hurd) was kidnapped. Lou broke rules that cost him his badge, and Steve welcomed him to Five-0. From that point forward, Lou became a bright spot on the series with his never-ending humorous quips and strong family ties to the team. This character was a stand out on the show.

Redemption

Hawaii Five-0 has redeemed some pretty shady characters, including Adam Noshimuri (Ian Anthony Dale) who was once heavily involved in the Yakuza and its illegal activities. Once Adam began dating Kono (Grace Park), he began to change, and now, is a member of Hawaii Five-0.

Gerard Hirsch (Willie Garson) is another character who turned his life around, thanks to the Five-0 team. After the task force interrupted his theft of art, Gerard has made a valiant, if somewhat shaky, attempt at staying on the right side of the law and even considers himself a friend of the team.

Along the way there have been others who have redeemed themselves with the help of one or more members of the task force, including Tani’s brother, Koa (Kunal Sharma) who went from being a drug addict to helping addicts get clean.

Hawaii Five-0 created a team that doesn’t give up on people easily. They’re willing to give second, even third, chances to deserving people, and that is one of the many ways this series created a sense of hope and family.

There’s little doubt there will ever be a show quite like Hawaii Five-0, but then, that’s probably what fans said when the original series ended in 1980 after twelve seasons. Still, the cast of this version of the series made it their own, and for that, they will leave a lasting imprint behind.
