It's no secret that SWAT Captain Lou Grover (Chi McBride) doesn't always see eye to eye with McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin) on Hawaii Five-0. But that may change on Friday's Season 4 finale (9/8c, CBS), when Grover finds his professional ethics are put to the ultimate test.
"He starts off the season looking at what McGarrett's doing as being unorthodox. It's everything he hates," showrunner Peter Lenkov tells TVGuide.com. "[The finale] brings everything full circle. ...

He sees that sometimes you have to play dirty in order to get the bad guys."
CBS announced Thursday that Hawaii Five-0 will return for a sixth season, and Jorge Garcia will be back as well.
Garcia, who's guest-starred on two episodes of the series, has been upped to a series regular for Season 6, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Friday's episode of Hawaii Five-0 pays tribute to the attack on Pearl Harbor and the subsequent executive order that established Japanese internment camps on the Pacific Coast.

It's nice when television can entertain and educate at the same time. I feel like it's a pretty unique opportunity to go beyond the crime of the week and delve into a chapter in our nation's history."
