Adam Noshimuri’s (Ian Anthony Dale) stay in “Hawaii Five-0” Season 8 becomes questionable for some. Although the 39-year-old star has been announced as a series regular, it is still a big question how could his character stay on the television after his wife, Kono Kalakaua's (Grace Park), exit.

Unlike his wife, Adam is not part of the task force. Also, Kono is no longer a member of the team. To recall, the expert sniper left the police department in the previous season to focus on another case. With that, some wonder why he didn't join his wife.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, executive producer Peter Lenkov talked about their plans for Adam's future in the series and how his character will play a major role this season.

Adam’s character development

Adam’s involvement with 'Five-0' is going to be very different from the other members of 'Five-0,'” Lenkov told EW.

Adam will be doing a very specific task in “Hawaii Five-0” Season 8 and wouldn't be part of the task force’s team.

With that, fans won’t be seeing him wearing a badge of his own or trying to solve any case like Kono. Instead, he will be doing something that will create a “big season arc” for his character. Carter Matt reported that Anthony Dale’s role would be visible around this season.

He might be seen honoring his wife or proving that he can survive without Kono. His storyline might also tackle why he chose to be left behind and stay on the island.

Danny and Steve’s dream

In another interview with TV Line, Lenkov revealed that his favorite “Hawaii Five-0” Season 8 side-plot is not really about the crimes happening on the island.

But, it is about Danny (Scott Caan) and Steve (Alex O’Loughlin) interest to open up their restaurant someday.

Although it seems like it has no connection to the television show, it has a link in its storyline. According to Lenkov, the ongoing discussion about opening an eating place, which will be called “Steve’s,” is connected to the bigger “underlying theme of legacies" that the series is going to explore this season.

He explained that a big part of last year and this year’s conversation is about the legacies that these fictional characters are going to leave behind. “And [Steve and Danny] sort of star this side project,” he said. In fact, although they haven’t started yet doing this plan, it would be a lot of fun for them. But, it might still take a number of years before this will finally happen.

“Hawaii Five-0” Season 8’s first episode will premiere on Sept. 29 on CBS.
