It might be time for Lynn Downey to exit the “Hawaii Five-0” dating game.

In a post-McRollins world, Sarah Carter’s high-octane persona burst onto the scene and stole Steve McGarrett’s (Alex O’Loughlin) heart with one wild first date, delighting shippers and “Falling Skies” fans alike. Now, two seasons later, their romance could come to an unexpected end.

Another 'Hawaii Five-0' girlfriend for McGarrett?

For McGarrett, a prerequisite for falling in love is sharing a proverbial foxhole. He fought wars alongside Catherine, survived an episode of “Lost” with Lynn, and, depending on how the writers play their cards, he’ll have dodged a watery death alongside his next inamorata.

Claire Forlani is back on set for season 8, which means “Hawaii Five-0” will have a chance to pair the criminal profiler and former Navy SEAL for more than just a serial killer manhunt.

“There is definitely chemistry between them and the idea of leaning in that direction is very intriguing to us, so we’re thinking about it,” executive producer Peter Lenkov told Entertainment Weekly.

When we first met Forlani’s Alicia, she was emotionally unavailable, weighed down as she was by her daughter’s death. Despite Dr. Gray’s (aka the Chess Piece Killer) worst intentions, her malevolent machination’s ultimately reunited the Browns last winter. Now, fate will conspire to throw Alicia and McGarrett together again when “Hawaii Five-0” returns for season 8.

Set to appear in episode 4 (airing order unconfirmed), the actress soaked up the beauty of the Aloha State before heading to set early last week.

Although she might be McGarrett’s only new love interest, Alicia certainly won’t be the only familiar face to aid the task force this fall.

'Hawaii Five-0' new and returning characters

Along with Forlani, actor Chris Vance will also reprise his role in season 7. Previously responsible for drawing McGarrett and co. into a burgeoning nuclear crisis across the Atlantic, the MI6 agent will bring a little James Bond to episode 2.

Meanwhile, the series will look to flesh out two new characters in the wake of Grace Park (Kono) and Daniel Dae Kim’s (Chin) departure. Get ready to see a lot of a police academy washout by the name of Tani (Meaghan Rath) and former Navy SEAL Junior Reigns (Beulah Koale). Fate and fortune will bring both characters under the Five-0’s aegis as early as the premiere, giving the team a new dynamic to play off.

“Hawaii Five-0” will return to CBS this fall, Fridays at 9 p.m. ET.
