EXCITING news… Peter Lenkov and Daniel Dae Kim both tweeted that they just finished an awesome first read through of the Hawaii Five-0 season 2 premiere episode, titled “Ha ‘iole”:
@PLenkov: GREAT READ THRU!
@DanielDaeKim: Just finished the first table read for #H50 Season 2. So great to see the gang again.
Now what does “Ha ‘iole” mean? I’ll leave the accurate translation to my blogging buddy Wendie of the Five-0 Redux, but depending on the context (and assuming CBS’ translation is correct), the title could refer to a rat (figurative or literal) or a type of fishing lure and sinker…what could it mean…?!?
Update: Terry O’Quinn’s character’s name was previously unreleased. Looks like he’s Lt Commander Joe White. Not terribly original, it may be just a working name until the writers decide on a final name. As mentioned elsewhere, Joe White is John McGarrett’s pilot buddy and presumably retired from the Navy as a lieutenant commander.
Update: A very, very, very literal translation would be “rat breath”.
