Hawaii Five-0 doesn't waste any time getting into high gear when it kicks off its fourth season in a new timeslot this Friday (9/8c, CBS). There's no daring underwater prison break like in the Season 3 premiere, but the episode still manages to set in motion events whose ripple effects will be felt throughout the season. And not all of the major players make it out of the premiere unscathed. Will Steve McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin) finally get the answers he's looking for from Wo Fat (Mark Dacascos)? Will Kono (Grace Park) be brought back into the fold? And who, or what, poses the biggest threat to the team this season?
TVGuide.com turned to O'Loughlin and executive producer Peter Lenkov to get answers to eight burning questions ahead of Season 4:
CBS's Hawaii Five-0 has recruited a key player from the network's other vintage Hawaii-set crime drama, Magnum P.I., to play a recurring role.
Larry Manetti, 65, who played Magnum's slick Rick from 1980 to '88, will debut in an upcoming episode titled 'Pa' ani' as local lounge legend Nicky 'The Kid' Demarco. Back in the day, Nicky was mentored by the one and only Frank Sinatra.
Another Lost reunion is in the works on Hawaii Five-0.
Terry O'Quinn will reprise his role as retired SEAL Joe White on the CBS drama later this season, the network tweeted.

Hawaii Five-0's Scott Caan really hopes fans dig Monday's episode — and not just because it's built around a juicy flashback for his character.
Hawaii Five-0: Mama McGarrett's back — but can she be trusted?
"I hope that people are more into stuff like this than the procedural part of the show," Caan tells TVGuide.com. "We get to do episodes like this not often enough. ... If we can get enough people that like the episodes like this as a business model, then CBS can say, 'Oh, OK, this works too.' But CBS has been so successful with the way that they do their shows, it's almost risky for them to do episodes in a procedural show that have nothing to do with cases. ... I hope we can do more like that."
