Alex O’Loughlin – Is he brave or just a “girl” like Danno? – An Update

We have had such a lot of interest in our first post  in regards to Steve injecting himself, that we decided to do a follow-up with all the new detail we came across while intensifying our study.

Two weeks ago in Hawaii-Five-0 Episode 3:04, we saw the now famous injection scene where Steve gives himself a tetanus shot. We asked ourselves the first and big question of whether it was actually Alex “ injecting” himself?

We started of  by breaking this scene down in two parts and to see what we have:
1. We have a shot of Steve from the other side of the table where Danny is standing. We see Steve pulling his pants and shirt away and give himself the injection. He is not showing a lot of skin at all.

2. Then we see a close up shot of him injecting himself and his pants pulled down quite a lot further than in the previous shot. (Yummy!)

We want you to look closely at the first scene. Where is he injecting himself? Please be aware that the photo’s are not good quality because we had to zoom in quiet a bit:

Not only did we see that Steve “injected” himself on the hip bone very much to the front, but it also looks like Alex was using protection (like any wise man should) Can you see it?

A blue film like thingy at the front of the needle. And not only that, there seems to be a square like flesh coloured plaster on the spot as well – making doubly sure of protecting himself. (Maybe the plaster irritated him a bit and left that red mark on his hip we see later on?)

Let’s move on to the close up shot where he is injecting himself on the bum this time.

Have a closer look at the two pictures below. Take into account that we think he got a bit manscaped for the injection shot and that the two pictures are not taken from the same angle. (The picture on the left was taken from the front and we had to zoom in quiet a lot, while the picture on the right is more from the side)

Have a look at where the blue arrow is pointing. Is it possible that we seeing the same “scar” or mark on both pictures?

Then there is also the question about the hand. Is it really Alex’s hand? Thanks to ‘Amberrocks’ for pointing us in the right direction!

In the top right photo, you see the hand from the injection scene. Look at the “line” we highlighted running across the first finger. That “line” seems to be the vein running across Alex’s finger as shown in the other pictures. We believe that it is a good indication that it was in fact Alex’s own hand.

  1. I don’t think the pic with the blue arrows show the same position at all?

    To me it looks like the first pic is showing the happy trail, and the second is showing a much more ‘personal’ hair shot.

    I will definitely have to study this more closely when I get home from work 🙂

      You are most probably right, although just one or two thoughts……
      Look at both pic’d from a wider angle…..
      Does Alex have more than one “V”?
      Have you looked at how low his pants were hanging on the original pic at 7/11

      Okay Westy. I had closer look and see what you mean. This is the fold on top of his leg. It is more stretched out that normal because he is bending very far backwards to be ablr to administer the shot.
      It is his femur sticking out so prominently because he is bend backwards.
      Think I am seeing clearer now!!

    I can’t decide if it is real or not; however, as an RN I do know that a tetanus shot should be given intramuscularly, buttock or upper arm.


  3. I don’t want to um.. say bad things, but um, Alex doesn’t have a stomach roll that big on him, does he?? So is it really him, or his double??
    Look at Ep3:02.. I don’t see a roll, over his cargo’s do you?? Thank to for the picture! 🙂
