Those who were incensed by the turn that the Danny/Rachel storyline took will rejoice in the fact there may be a new love interest in Danny’s future. But this can go so many ways…is this “romantic interest” featured in only a singular flirty episode? Or is this the seed for something bigger? The news this far ahead in the season implies that she’ll be introduced within the first few episodes. If she’s introduced this early on, did the writers resolve the Danny/Rachel situation so soon in the season? We’ll just have to wait and see.
From Daemon’s TV:
No Ordinary Family Star Autumn Reeser To Guest Star on HAWAII FIVE-0
Autumn Reeser – best known for her role on the popular FOX drama The O.C. – who just wrapped up the short-lived ABC series No Ordinary Family, will guest star on HAWAII FIVE-0 when the CBS remake returns with new episodes this fall.
According to TV Line, she will play the potentially recurring role of Dr. Akina, a curator of a maritime museum. It seems McGarrett (Alex O’Laughlin) and Danny (Scott Caan) will seek out her expertise when a murder investigation leads Five-0 into the world of sunken treasure. As one can imagine, Danny will be fall under the good doctor’s charms and who knows where that may lead.
Ironically, Caan and Reeser appeared in Entourage together but not at the same time so it will be a reunion – of sorts.
Hawaii Five-0 returns with its second season premiere on September 19.
