Please be aware that some of the video clips posted here might contain spoilers of upcoming episodes.

Thank you to everybody who posted some footage this week.


Life on the Set:

  • From the set of the previous episode.

Jessica Munoz    I am still amazed at the opportunity to work with this phenomenal Hawaii Five-0 crew as we worked together to convey the issue of child sexual exploitation. THank you executive producers Bryan Spicer, Peter Lenkov, Episode director Bronwen Hughes actors Alex O’Loughlin Daniel Dae Kim Jorge Garcia (actor) Chi McBride and the beautiful Grace Park for partnering with us and using your platform giving voice to the voiceless. Ho’ola Na Pua thanks you. Also a shout out to Erika Kauffman for your support of this mission. If you haven’t checked out the PSA- watch here and join the movement!

Trivia for the week:

  •  A big thank you to those accounts on IG who deleted  the fake pictures they posted unknowingly. Always good to see that there are still fans who care and want to keep things real. (Remember there are big differences between fanart creations and false/fake pictures being created with photoshop in order to look like real pictures.)Highfive

Most ‘interesting’ search for the week:

  • what is alex o laughlins haircut called in hawaii five o

Next Week:

  • According to posts on social media they are busy filming the season finale of Hawaii Five-0. Peter indicated earlier that episode 7:24 and 7:25 will be swapped around, and that means that they still have the penultimate episode to film before hiatus. I guess they will start on that somewhere during next week.
  • Wonder if we will get news of renewal before they shoot the last episode, or if we will have to wait until May when the announcements are made during CBS Upfront in New York?

Life around #AlexOLoughlin – two weeks in review (17 Feb – 1 Mar 2017)

Another two weeks since our last news update about life around Alex. Things are really quiet there in Hawaii. It nearly feels like hiatus already, with such little news coming through. Hopefully there will be some of the last episodes filmed in places with tourists and cameras.

At least we have something to look forwards to – The May issue of CBS Watch Magazine will feature some Alex pictures. Well hopefully not just one picture – they promised more. Getting used to disappointments lately and scared to expect too much from it, but this the answer we got from them.


Dare we hope for a cover and maybe even a cover story interview?

Life on the Set:

News for the weeks:

  • Jeff Cadiente, the stunt coordinator, suddenly said his goodbyes on IG to the cast and crew of the show. All I can say is that the timing, with only 4 episode left for the season to film, and the silence from everybody else seems a bit odd.

airjef   My amazing run I’ve been on with Hawaii 5-0 has come to an end. I didn’t get to say goodbye to some of the cast and crew but wanted to say Mahalo. It’s been an amazing wave we’ve all ridden for the past 7 years. I’m sorry I didn’t get closure with some of my favorite people on the show. But know from the bottom of my heart, I love each and every one of you and proud to have shared this amazing experience with you all. Continued success on the show and I hope our paths can cross again. A special mahalo to @plenkov for the opportunity. Aloha can mean goodbye or hello … so for those I didn’t get to say it to …
Aloha and Mahalo to my 5-0 Ohana. Love Heffay
🙏🏽🌈🌊 …🤙🏽

  • News about Episode 7:19 that will be on CBS, March 10th.

Local Nonprofit Featured On Hawaii Five-0 “The cast and crew were incredibly engaged in this episode because it’s a real issue, based on real people, and a real non profit,” said Schnobrich, co-founder of Hoʻōla Nā Pua. “We’re excited to spread the word and want to share the news to not only the Hawaii audience, but also with the Reno audience.”


“Our vision is to provide girls who are rescued or escape from the abuse of sex trafficking with a path to restoration and healing from their trauma, an increased sense of self-worth, and the confidence and ability to successfully reintegrate into their family and the community.”

I hope you all are having a great week! And to set us into the mood for what will hopefully be one of the better episodes of the Season of Hawaii Five-0, a look back at the past week and a ½ around Alex. Not much happening, but at least we got some new stuff to post.

As always a big Thank You to those individuals who were so generous to post their pictures during this week.

Aiden looks very young here so maybe this picture was not taken 4 years ago, but rather taken when he first appeared on H50 in 2010.

  • hawaii five o kono and steve kiss
  • sexiest man alive alex o loughlin
  • is alex o’loughlin a nice guy


Next Week:

  • I am not sure about where exactly they are with filming, because we rarely get information from the directors these days. And they are also filming a crossover with MacGyver, which I am not sure where it will fit in with the episodes. But according to calculation I would guess they finished up filming Episode 7:20 this week and moved on to 7:21. Hopefully we will get some information about some of it soon. Maybe somebody can help us out to get back on track?



Enjoy your weekend!
