The Steve McGarrett Story – No #3 (Epi 1:03)

Our story from here, continues

Steve and his new-found family spend some leisure time together at a football game, but even that turns out to be a day at the office. They get involved with a gang shooting.

The whole team is there and they all meet Gracie for the first time before the shootout happens.

Meeting Gracie

Steve is in the car with Danny and he can hear the conversation between Danny and the attorney handling Rachel’s affairs. The attorney tells Danny that Rachel wants to revise his visitation rights, because she thinks it is to dangerous for Grace to be around Danny.

Rachel withdraws her case against Danny for visitation and he realises that Steve might have had something to do with the Governor persuading Rachel to withdraw. The Governor had some negotiation leverage with an approval Rachel’s new husband (Step-Stan) needed from the government for one of his projects.

Danno & Grace

Steve: Maybe you’re not as alone around here as you think, Danno.

After the team completed yet another succesful mission, they relax by watching some of Steve’s old football games. Steve of course being the quarterback, wearing a football jersey with the number 50 on it.

Danny: Just got one question, “What’s a quarterback doing with the number fifty (50)?”

Steve: No, it’s Five-O

Danny: Yeah.

Steve: No, it’s not Fifty, it’s Five-O. It’s what my dad used to call our family, because we weren’t native Hawaiians. So he nicknamed us Five-O’s, after of the 50th state in the union. I don’t know. it was his way of making us feel like we belong someplace. I guess

Kono: Hmmm, I like that. FIVE-O.


And so Five-0 was born ……..

    this episode must have been written to show the world the ‘real’ side of Alex & Scott, a little glimpse into how funny caring & loving they must be in private Do you think Scott’s natural ability with Teilor help him with his newly born baby girl Josie.


    • I think anybody with much younger siblings have an advantage when it come to having their own kids and being at ease with kids in general. As far as I know Scott has 3. He also looks very comfotrable with the kids in his surf charity.
      I think being at ease with those kids, might have actually helped him being so comfortable with Teilor.
      And little Josie will no doubt have some great times with her dad and granddad, who was very excited about her being on the way.


  3. I loved this episode in many ways 🙂
    And we start to see the friendship between Steve and Danno growing stronger and stronger.
    First glimpse of “uncle Steve” as well


  4. This is one of my favourite eps from Season 1. I love that they come together as Five-O, that Steve does that for Danny, that they look so dam hawt in those suits *swoon*

    I fell I love with McG in this ep. Such a softie! Both with Danno and with the football player he let go, even after they caught him with a gun in his lunch. Hee! And I loved the little snippet of McG’s backstory that we got. Always wistful, our McG.
