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.

“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”.
