In a number of interviews, Alex mentions that he did not really watch any Hawaii Five-0 episodes, apart from the times he had to watch the season openers at SOTB every year.
That always makes me wonder if Alex ever knew how many, and which scenes, never made it to the final cut on the show? And how that made the show different for us as viewers, to that which they actually shot as actors?
Some of those scenes sometimes explained things we never knew, or gave us a storyline and a character with a different angle.
Here are a few from Season 7 :
From Episode 7:01
- Danny just donated his liver to Steve. And then this…..
Steve: Oh, hey. I’m going to need you to donate something else now.
Danny: What’s that?
Steve: A piece of your ass. The Governor just took a giant bite out of mine.
From Episode 7:07
- Catherine fetches Steve to help rescue his mother in Morocco. This is he breaking the ice about her being in the CIA.
And some goodbyes:
- this commentary from Episode 7:13 – Alex on saying goodbye to Masi and his character, Max.
You know, it’s weird when you lose someone that you have been with for a long time.
And it was very touching, because Masi’s character is … is … and Masi, are both … they’re not … he’s not the most emotional person.
And that scene was like … it was really real man.
There were tears falling out of him. And the scene informed what was actually happening in our lives. And it was … was very touching …..
Hope you enjoyed our trip down memory lane … of that which never happened, because it got deleted. There is a number of other deleted scenes, especially a lot with one character – we will post that at a different time
As we do with Moonlight and everything else that Alex has ever done, we enjoy looking back at what was.
But for those who keep on begging for the show to still go on, or come back – please don’t …….. it is done.
