Tuesday, January 17, 2012





Fly to the top filming locations in 3D: Check out our 'Hawaii Five-0' Scene Spotting page >

The Five-0 team investigates a smuggling case involving Passport IDs, which dovetails with Joe White's efforts to elude Wo Fat's wrath and brings the "Shelbourne" arc to a close. (McGarrett chases Joe White across Nuuanu Avenue in Chinatown. Photo: Norman Shapiro/CBS).

Let's look at the filming locations:


  • Quick shots of Honolulu Airport, Honolulu Harbor and the Ka Iwi coastline.
  • The truck heist and shooting appeared to be out at Kaena Point, on the Leeward side.
  • The flashback scene was at the Bayer Estate in Aina Haina, aka the McGarrett home.
  • Joe White checks out an antiques shop on Nuuanu Avenue in Chinatown.
  • Quick shots of Makapuu Point and the Ewa Beach lighthouse.
  • The inside job truck driver was labeled to be at a house in Waialua. Plausible, hard to tell.
  • Once again, Aliiolani Hale, aka Five-0 headquarters.
  • Quick shots of the Ala Moana skyline near the beach, the Hilton Hawaiian Village and Waikiki surfers.
  • Inside the old Advertiser building for Honolulu Police headquarters.
  • Next to Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon for the Kamekona's Shrimp Shack scene.
  • Tsang Min and Kamekona get picked up in front of O'Tooles Pub in Chinatown.
  • Rachel is giving birth at Hawaii Medical Center.
  • The entrance to the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl is where McGarrett and Joe meet Adam Noshimuri.
  • Quick shots of Waikiki at night.
  • Back to the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl for the scene at McGarrett's father's grave.

Looking forward: So "Shelbourne" is an alias, and Joe is leaving to draw Wo Fat's fire away from McGarrett and the Islands. When will Wo Fat re-emerge? Stay tuned.



The Quotable Danno


  • "Oh, are we doing a thing right now? The thing that justifies us entering a place without a warrant?"
  • "Inhale through your eyes, and then exhale through your vagina. Can you do that, baby?" — talking Rachel through labor pains
  • "Can we mainline some drugs, please?"
  • "If you say he has my nose, I'll bust yours." — to McGarrett



The Clip


Of course it has to be the birthing scene — Danno is too cute in scrubs. "It's a baby boy!"
