When it comes to dodging bullets, there’s no one Danny Williams would rather have at his back than Steve McGarrett. When it comes to opening a restaurant…well…the “Hawaii Five-0” duo is best left to their own devices.

Danno has retirement dreams filled with waiters, chefs, and the perfect risotto. McGarrett has probably never contemplated a job that didn’t require gunpowder and stitches. Now, however, in an effort to keep his partner from cashing in his 401K early, McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) will go 50/50 on a new eatery.

What is McDanno up to on ‘Hawaii Five-0’?

If that sounded like a rom-com pitch to you, you’re not far off.

Although McDanno’s bromance is patently platonic, their quarrelsome antics jive with the opposites attract mentality of a Bridget Jones film. Best intentions aside, the “Hawaii Five-0” pair will take their carguments to the kitchen in Season 8.

“It’s a long-term thing,” showrunner Peter Lenkov told TVLine. “And who knows — the way they’re sort of going at each other, and given their different points of view with regards to building this business as something to retire into, it may never even happen! Because it’s just one hurdle after another.”

Well, at least we know the venture will start out on the right foot. Lenkov posted the following clip on Twitter.

“I believe in you, I believe in us, and that’s all that matters,” McGarrett says, propping Danno up with a confidence crutch as they examine their new digs.

So, how long until the boys are on “Restaurant: Impossible”? Perhaps they can get a few pointers from Kamekona, purveyor of the best shrimp Honolulu has to offer.

Next time on ‘Hawaii Five-0’

Over the hiatus, the CBS reboot found itself in the middle of an uproar. Failing to secure equal pay alongside their white male co-stars, Daniel Dae Kim (Chin) and Grace Park (Kono) departed the series. Their exits were preceded by finale arcs that placed Chin as the head of a Five-0 outfit in San Francisco and allowed Kono to track human traffickers on the mainland.

Now, McGarrett and co. will round out the task force with the addition of Tani Rey (Meaghan Rath) and Junior Reigns (Beulah Koale). With Tani, viewers will get a dose of unpredictability, particularly since she was kicked out of the police academy for socking an instructor. Junior, meanwhile, will share ties with McGarrett as a fellow Navy SEAL.

Catch up with “Hawaii Five-0” when the series returns to CBS on Sept. 29 at 9 p.m. ET.
