Interesting stuff…like I wrote in my Champ box discussion back in January, I figured the key probably had figurative meaning, and didn’t actually open a physical lock. Back then I thought it had to do with the cypher, but the cypher mystery has already been solved.
What’s really piqued my interest is the character’s 180 that the producers and writers have in store for them.
You guys have any ideas?

‘HAWAII FIVE-0′: MAJOR MYSTERIES COME TO A CLOSE
The impression I get from exec producer Peter Lenkov, co-executive producer Paul Zbyszewski, and the rest of the team at H 5-0 is that they are adamant about one thing as they close out their freshman season: They have no interested in toying with viewers. This season’s major mysteries will have resolution, and they have so much more up their sleeves for season 2. Specifically, McGarrett’s storyline will come to a major head during the season opener, they say. “He finally gets the answers to the rest of the clues in his father’s box,” Lenkov says. “He finally figures out what those were and why his father was investigating them when he died. If you remember the pilot, he hears that the answer to everything was the key. If he could figure out what the key meant — literally and figuratively — he could solve this investigation he was on. We definitely pay this stuff off. Obviously, when you start answering things, new questions come up, but in terms of the box and the mystery of the box, that pays off. I think the people who were very loyal deserve those answers.”
Also on tap to be solved? The mystery behind the envelopes. “We answer that question as well. That ties into the mystery,” Zbyszewski says.
But why all this resolution? Lenkov says it was necessary, as the end of the season will bring about incredible changes. “I think what we’re really proud of is how each one of our characters does a complete 180 from where you saw them in the beginning of the season,” he says. “They really go through some major changes in the finale — life changes.”
