A scene that will have something to delight all fans – even if some iconic Hawaii 5-0 figures are obviously missing – but which is not the last sequence of the series since the very last scene of the episode sees Steve boarding the plane that will take him away from Hawaii, the island he set foot on ten years ago, in search of answers he has now found. The circle is complete.
Last minute happy ending for Steve?
As the 5-0 Hawaii hero has just taken his seat on the plane, a familiar voice asks if the seat next door is occupied.

Asked by the American site TVLine at the time of the broadcast of the final of season 10 in the United States, the creator and showrunner of Hawaii 5-0, Peter Lenkov, had justified his decision to bring Catherine back by explaining that for him this return just made sense: “Of course I could have listened to the fans and not brought her back (laughs). But listen, I think I’m the one who knows these characters best.”.
“I always had the feeling that Catherine, like the good soldier that she is, always put God, her country, and her duty first. But I also always had the feeling that she really loved Steve. . And that there were things that held her away from him that were beyond his control. But that happiness has always been there, within reach. If you look closely, at the end there is a brief moment. where he turns to her and smiles. And this is the first time in a very long time that this man has been seen smiling. “.
“I want to think that he’s going to leave, find some peace, come back and be in that same chair on the beach with Danny one day”, concluded the creator of the series. “But this time maybe with a family by his side, with new things that complement him”.
