Hawaii Five-0 season 3 premieres on Monday with "La O Na Makuahine," Hawaiian for "Mother's Day." It's the episode that's going to introduce Christine Lahti as Doris McGarrett, Steve's mother. CBS has now released a sneak peek teasing what to expect when Doris meets Danny.
H50 Season 3 Episode 1 "La O Na Makuahine" Clip
"Following McGarrett's mother's (guest star Christine Lahti) surprise return and Chin's gut-wrenching decision in last season's finale cliffhanger, the team is determined to track down Wo Fat and Delano for killing an important member of their family."
Steve's life is about to be thrown into chaos now that he knows his mother's alive, but the trouble is far from over, as teased in previews. Wo Fat is out there, not to mention Delano, and this is not going to be a fun family reunion. There is going to be at least one moment of light-heartedness in the car between Danny and a McGarrett, but it's not Steve. Instead, Danny's going to be facing a personal interrogation from Steve's mother, as the Hawaii Five-0 season 1 premiere clip from "La O Na Makuahine" (below) shows.
While Steve's driving and on the phone, Doris focuses in on Danny in the backseat and asks questions about his personal life. She also offers some advice, to which he tells her, "Respectfully, I don't think you are in a position to be giving me parenting advice." Ouch, that's harsh (but true). Danny also says something when she adopts her son's nickname for him. Poor Danny can't win in this conversation, because even though Doris acts just like a mother after Steve's reaction when he gets off the phone, she turns back on Danny when he pipes up from the backseat.
What do you think of the Hawaii Five-0 season 3 episode 1 sneak peek from "La O Na Makuahine"?
