The Steve McGarrett Story – No #37

We continue our story from here

Steve 22

Just for interest sake – the schedule for Hawaii Five-0 broadcasting has been released and it looks like our countdown to the 100th episode on the 7th of  November, will work correctly. We are just over a third of the way, but still a lot of Steve’s story to cover. I must admit the episodes that we are currently with, are very difficult for me to ‘study’.

As you will see I post a minimum of pictures. The only thing that makes me ‘handle’ it in  a sense, is the knowledge that Alex made it through the mental and physical pain, that is so visible in these pictures and that things recovered so wonderfully for him!  It definitely took courage to admit a problem and to address it and “survive” it.

Life is not about never stumbling or falling, but how we get up and move forward!

But let’s continue with our story………..

Chin picks Joe up at the airport.

Chin: It’s your second trip to Japan in two months.

Joe: What can I say? I’m a sucker for karaoke. Something on your mind?

Chin: Hiro Noshimuri. HPD has evidence that he was murdered, Joe. I’m not directly involved with the investigation, but I’m told they’re starting to look at you.

Joe: I did not kill Hiro Noshimuri. We had a conversation, and when it was over, he walked away. If he’s dead HPD should be looking at WoFat.

Chin: Why would WoFat want to kill the head of the Yakuza?

Joe: Shelburne.

Chin: Did Noshimuri tell you who Shelburne is?

Joe: No. But WoFat might think otherwise.

Chin: The problem is you were the one seen taking  Noshimuri at gunpoint. HPD isn’t going to just let it go.

Joe: Apparently neither is the Yakuza. We got company.

Chin confronts Steve about Joe and plants a seed of doubt with him.

Chin: Yakuza knows HPD’s circling Joe. They were sending a message. Steve, Joe is in real trouble.

Steve: Okay. I’ll reach out to Adam Noshimuri. He’s in charge now.

Chin: Maybe you should reach out to Joe.

Steve: Joe told me he didn’t kill Hiro.

Chin: Okay, I  know you trust him.

Steve: Of course I trust him. I mean he’s like a father to me. When my father wasn’t around, he was, for years.

Chin: That was a long time ago, Steve. People change. How much do you really know about his life over the past 10 years?

Steve: He saved my life, Chin. More than once.

Chin: I get that. I do. But I’m telling you, he’s hiding something. Why does he keep going to Japan? And what does he really know about Shelburne? And do you really believe he didn’t kill Hiro Noshimuri? I’m just saying you might not know the whole story.

Steve gets a call and he leaves for HPD to talk to Joe where he is being questioned by the police.

Steve: You gotta come clean with these guys. I mean, you know that right? You gotta tell them everything.

Joe: What is it you want me to tell them?

Steve: Why you went to see Noshimuri. Why you are the last person to see him before he disappeared.

Joe: You are interfering with something that you don’t understand.

Steve: Why don’t you explain it to me, Joe? Tell me what the hell is going on! You gotta wake up. The walls are closing in on you. HPD wants answers. The Yakuza wants blood. Shelburne. Is he worth this, huh? Is he worth going to jail for? Is he worth dying for, Joe?

Joe: People already died, son. I’m trying to make it stop! I’m getting out of here. Cops have nothing on me.

Later the day, when Steve can’t get ahold of Joe, he goes to his place and find his keys still in the door and his phone on the floor. He realises that Joe was abducted. He finds Joe at Adams’ place, where he is being beaten and questioned about Hiro’s disappearance. Of course Ninja Steve and his gun get Joe out of there. He  drives Joe home.

Joe: You realise, you just started a war with the Yakuza.

Steve: No Joe. You did that when you grabbed Hiro Noshimuri, okay. They think you killed him.

Joe: Well I didn’t kill him. I helped him fake his death.

Steve: What? Why?

Joe: I can’t tell you that.

Steve: I was tortured over Shelburne! I was tortured! Joe, Jenna Kaye paid with her life. I deserve answers. I want answers. I want them right now!

Joe gets out of the car and walks away……..

#AlexOLoughlin to Participate in ALS Benefit on 6 September 2014

A telephonic interview with Alex:

BY JOHN BERGER, 4 September 2014

Please find original article here: Honolulu pulse

(One of the best online sources of local news in Hawaii)


Celebrities get countless requests to lend their name to good causes. Sometimes they do it for the publicity, but when Alex O’Loughlin, known to the world as Steve McGarrett of “Hawaii Five-0,” participates in Saturday’s second annual Hawaii Walk to Defeat ALS at Kapiolani Park, it’ll be personal.

“My wife’s mother passed from ALS,”

O’Loughlin said in a phone interview Wednesday.

“My kids don’t have a grandmother because of this disease. My wife doesn’t have a mother and I don’t have a mother-in-law.”

ALS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is an invariably fatal disease that attacks nerve cells and pathways in the brain and spinal cord. (It is also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease for the famed New York Yankees first baseman who succumbed to the ailment in 1941.) As it progresses, ALS sufferers lose the ability to move and speak, and eventually are unable to swallow or breathe on their own. In most cases their mind and senses continue to function normally.

“To watch what it does to families and watch someone die in such a horrible way with no chance of a cure … ,” O’Loughlin’s voice trailed off for a moment.

“That’s the thing about this disease, there’s not even a ‘chemo’ of sorts. There’s just no hope, and I pray as we all do, that one day if we raise enough money and put enough energy and time into that we will find something for people who are suffering from ALS.”

The cause of ALS is unknown and it does not appear to be inherited genetically.

“It’s just out of the blue,”

said O’Loughlin, who is married to surfer/model Malia Jones. The couple have three children.

“My wife’s mother was a triathlon runner. It’s a great and cruel riddle.”


O’Loughlin was one of many actors and celebrities to support ALS research by participating in the Ice Bucket Challenge, a grassroots fundraiser/awareness campaign that has gone viral thanks to video posts by participants world-wide.

He was challenged by “Five-0” writer/producer Peter Lenkov and enlisted fellow cast members Daniel Dae Kim and Jorge Garcia to do it with him. (Link to the video and our article about it here)

“We called out the president of CBS, Les Moonves — a number of people called him out — and he graciously and heroically accepted the challenge.

We thought we were sort of taking it to another level using big Gatorade-size ice buckets but we’ve since looked at a whole bunch of (videos) and there are some pretty impressive ones out there,” O’Loughlin said.


“I’ve seen so many high-profile people getting in on this, and the best part is that it’s a fun way to do it and everyone’s kind of challenging each other, but it’s really stirring up a lot more awareness of ALS.”

Looking forward to season five of “Hawaii Five-0,O’Loughlin wouldn’t go into specifics regarding what awaits McGarrett but it sounds like fans can expect some surprises.

Hawaii will get a sneak peek at the season premiere at a Sunset on the Beach screening in Waikiki on Sept. 13.

“There have been some shifts with the team. There’s been some new additions. There’s some characters we’ve had to say goodbye to but the core team is still there,” he said.

“McGarrett still battles with the loss of his mother (and) we’re going to be exploring some new stuff about his father and that loss.

“It’s a big season opener, we’re certain you’re not going to be disappointed, and we’re looking forward to seeing everybody on the beach next week.”
