We continue with our series of deleted scenes from the show ….
One character on Hawaii Five-0 who seems to have gotten the short end of the stick was Alicia. So many scenes of Steve and Alicia having contact with each other, got deleted. And then the character just disappeared never to be seen or heard of again.
Did the writers want to give her a bigger role in Steve’s life and then somehow got cold feet about it all and retreated? Or did the actress, Claire Forlani, get another more permanent role somewhere else?
Claire in the role of Alicia appeared in 6 episodes of the show in Seasons 7 and 8. We will have a look at the timeline of her story and add some of the deleted scenes with it.
We first meet Alicia in Episode 7:02. The team needs a profiler to help them catch the Chess-piece serial killer. This serial killer story was an arc that started in Episode 7:01 and carried on until Episode 7:17 when Alicia killed the killer.
When FBI Profiler Alicia Brown finds a body in her bed, she is forced to join McGarrett in the hunt for the chess-piece killer.
Five-0 must find McGarrett and Alicia when they are kidnapped by the serial killer they’ve been hunting.
- From this episode, we have our first deleted scene: Alex and Alicia trapped in a sea cave.
- We never see Alicia in this episode, but from it, we get our second deleted scene. Steve leaving Alicia a voicemail.
Voicemail: You’ve reached Alicia Brown. Please leave a message.
Steve: Hey, Alicia. It’s me, it’s Steve. I … I’ve just been thinking about you. I wanted to make sure you were okay. I also wanted to let you know that we have alerts out to the FBI, Interpol. We’re going to find Gray, Alicia. You have my word for it
Anyway, look, if … if you want to a call me, just you go ahead, okay. Call me anytime. Bye.
McGarrett and Five-0 once again become entangled in the twisted mind games of serial killer Dr. Madison Gray when she stumbles into HPD covered in blood that matches Alicia Brown’s and claims amnesia.
They realise that Dr. Gray knows where Alicia’s daughter Sienna was. Alicia thought her daughter was dead, but she was kidnapped and held captive for all these years. Steve helped to save Sienna, Alicia’s daughter from her captor. Then one evening, Alicia shoots Dr. Gray when she comes to their house.
- From this episode, we get our 3rd deleted scene. Alicia leaving Steve a voicemail.
Steve, it is Alicia. I just wanted to say hi. We are settled in now in Vancover. It’s cold. It’s cold, but it’s nice. Sienna, she’s better. You know, some days are harder than others, you know. She likes it here, so that is good.
Anyway, I just wanted you to know that we are doing okay. And to say thank you. I know I’ve said it already, but we’re just really grateful to you Steve.
I hope I get to hear your voice again. I’d like that. Until then, take care of yourself okay.
- And then we as viewers just see her pop back in Episode 8:06, to stand trial for the murder of Dr. Gray.
- And in this episode, we also get our 4th deleted scene. Steve dropping Alicia off at home at the end of the day. She just got the news that all charges against her were dropped. Remember it was the Halloween episode.
Steve: Does … does Sienna know?
Alicia: No, I wanted to tell her myself.
So, are you coming in?
Steve: No, I think I’m going to leave the two of you to celebrate. just the two of you.
Alicia: ‘Cos, I mean, I’ve got two full bags of candy in there. I’m kind of intrigued at the idea of you on a sugar high.
Steve: I’ll call you tomorrow, alright?
Steve: I’m sorry. What is this face?
Alicia: I know it was you.
Steve: First of all, maybe a sent a text to the Governor to give her the heads-up that you were assisting the Five-0 Taskforce in this investigation. I mean, it’s possible I pressed upon her the importance of that assistance. And that we may need to call on you again in the future.
If she said something to the prosecuting attorneys, it’s got nothing to do with me.
Alicia: Come here.
I want to thank you for respecting my wishes and not getting involved.
Steve: You’re welcome.
Alicia: You’re a good man, Steve McGarrett.
Alicia once again helps the team to solve a case. She shares drinks with them all at Kamekona’s shrimp truck. And then disappears into thin air …… if I remember correctly, never to be seen or heard of again.
We would have liked to hear about Alicia again …..
Just another interesting (female) character “killed” by the Hawaii Five-0 curse of people in Steve’s life, just vanishing?
