Joe White returns, Capt. Fryer is gone (but not without a fight) and we learn that "Shelburne" is... mom? Between that and the unknown fate of Kono at the hands of dirty cop Frank Delano, we'll be all atwitter until the Season 3 premiere this fall.

Here's where they filmed:
Beautiful opening shots of Diamond Head and Waikiki surf breaks.
Kono, however, wasn't surfing Waikiki: She exited the ocean at Waimanalo Beach.
McGarrett's entering Five-0 offices, but it's really the administration building at Iolani Palace.
Capt. Fryer walked out of the Cooke Street Diner around the corner from the Advertiser building, before being gunned down in a Kaka'ako alleyway. (Very strange, the call said the DOA was in Manoa. Those alleys don't look anything like Manoa Valley).
Soaring overhead views of Diamond Head and Honolulu. What a beautiful town!
Hello Aliiolani Hale, aka Five-0 headquarters.
Overheads of Punchbowl and downtown Honolulu.
The Honolulu Police Department parking entrance is over by Ala Moana Center.
The Honolulu Police Department building is played by the old Advertiser building, both the corridors where they were pursuing Fryer's and Max's shooter and the high-speed exiting out the front. Ka-BLAM!
Sweeping aerial shot of the pink Tripler Hospital, but the interior hospital shots were likely their standby: Hawaii Medical Center.
The pet hospital was also in Kaka'ako.
Great shots of Diamond Head from the ocean and at the peak, transitioning to the Diamond Head Lookout where Danno has his heart-to-heart with Gracie.
Quick shot of Kapiolani Park and Waikiki.
Kono's house is in Manoa. (See, that's Manoa.)
Chin Ho releases dirty cop Frank Delano from Halawa prison.
Chin Ho and Frank haggle over the lives of Kono and Malia at what looks like Kewalo Basin Harbor, but could be Keehi Boat Harbor on Sand Island.
Looked like the stand-in for the Japanese village was waterfront on the Windward side of the island.

The Quotable Danno
"I want to put him on America's Dumbest Criminals."
What's with the Navy Seal Death Stare?"
"What is that look. Please don't do anything stupid. No one likes to get shot."
And a special quotable shout-out to Kamekona:
"Tofu shrimp... for the fallen hero."
Cliffhanger No. 1 puts Kono in certain danger and Malia in uncertain straits.
