First CBS promo shot of Hawaii Five-0 Season 2 episode “Ha’i’ole”; updated with press release

Just a few minutes ago, CBS released the first promo shot from “Ha’i’ole”, the first Hawaii Five-0 episode of season 2. As you can see, Steve is sporting a pumpkin orange jumpsuit, which is a fabulous fall color in Hawaii! It appears that he’s talking to Danny…

They’ve translated “ha’i’ole” to mean “Not from here”, and I’ll defer to my blogging buddy Wendie Joy (@WendieJoy) of the Five-0 Redux for the translation’s accuracy.

Update: CBS Press Release states that “ha’i’ole” means unbreakable.

08.18.2011 WHILE McGARRETT SITS IN PRISON AWAITING TRIAL FOR THE MURDER OF THE GOVERNOR, DANNY BRINGS HIM A SURPRISE VISITOR TO HELP CLEAR HIM, ON THE SECOND SEASON PREMIERE OF “HAWAII FIVE-0,” MONDAY, SEPT. 19

“Ha’i’ole*” – While McGarrett sits in prison awaiting trial for the murder of the governor, Danny brings him a surprise visitor to help clear him. Meanwhile, Kono is suspended for the force, pending an internal investigation, on the second season premiere of HAWAII FIVE-0, Monday, Sept. 19 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Terry O’Quinn (“Lost”) recurs as Lt. Commander Joe White, McGarrett’s former SEAL instructor; Richard T. Jones (“Judging Amy”) recurs as the new governor, Sam Denning; and William Sadler (“Shawshank Redemption”) guest stars as John McGarrett.

*Ha’i’ole is Hawaiian for “Unbreakable”

Update:  The CBS photo caption on the CBS website originally said “ha’iole”, which means “rat breath”, but the press release made the correction.  The first translation also read “not from here”, and I have a feeling that the person who uploaded the photo confused “ha’i’ole” with “haole” which means someone who’s “not from here”.

    awesome pic

  2. Linda Stein says:

    Thanks Officer. Yeah, he’s talking to Danny and from the reflection it looks like there is someone behind Danny too. Whoever it is has hair so it’s not Joe White as we saw in other BTS twitpics from Peter Lenkov. Very very cool. Only 4 weeks to go. We may actually make it through this never ending summer!!! Mahalo!

  3. Mary Jane says:

    Love this photo and Steve’s expression. It’s nice to see a photo of Danny and Steve talking together after seeing photos of all the new guest stars. To me, their relationship is the most important part of the show.

  4. Awesomefan says:

    You know…. in the season finale when Steve was being booked, that guy said to Kono something to the effect of, “You will have to relinquish your badge and gun pending an investigation”. I didn’t think she was being arrested. Oh, I can’t wait to see what happens! Why is Sept. 19th so far away?

  5. Bert Hayling says:

    Wow, so we get the Pa McG flashback in the premiere! Cool! (I wondered when and how William Sadler was going to be worked into this first handful of eps — I was thinking 2.02 or maybe 2.03, as he was in town and at the studio at the same time as Mark Dacascos).

    You know the season premiere’s getting close when they start releasing the actual publicity pics and episode press release. 🙂

    Mahalo, Bob! 🙂

  6. Thanks for the mention, Officer:) It means according to my Hawaiian Language expert: T Ilihia Gionson-
    Haʻiʻole – stubborn n’ inflexible (haʻi = break, ʻole = not going) OR not going tell (haʻi also = speak)

    Hā ʻiole – the breath of the rat (doubt it! :-P)

    There you have it folks:) Hope this helps. XO WendieJoy

    yippee!! Can’t wait!

  8. MyMcG says:

    Wow, this picture took my breath away… especially with the cool way your blog loads up on the ipad, I got a full screen of my beloved Steve in orange, with a dramatic and slow zoom on his furrowed brow.

    I. CAN’T. WAIT.

    Eeek so nice to see that Danny goes to see him! Can’t wait for Season 2 to start!

  11. Louise says:

    I’m more curious as to what will happen with Rachel and Danny and how that will play out. I can’t see Danny staying in Hawaii without Gracie. Looking forward to the new season!

  12. Beth says:

    I just realized that the Lt. Gov’s last name, Denning, is the same last name as the actor who played Gov. Jameson on the original H50 Richard Denning.
