Yes, there are a few season finales to go, but with the rush of surprise twists, cliffhangers, and exits behind us, it’s now time for EW.com’s fourth annual reader-voted Season Finale Awards. After taking your suggestions under advisement — and extending the cutoff date to March 31, because so many of you wanted to (dis)honor the passing of The Walking Dead‘s Andrea — here are this year’s nominees. UPDATE: Polls are now closed. Winners will be announced Friday. READ FULL STORY
Tag: Hawaii Five-0 (1-10 of 27)
The year was 2010. The American citizenry was torn asunder by a stressful midterm election. The Far East Movement was ascending the Billboard Hot 100 chart with “Like a G6.” After resolving sundry environmental and political crises, Peter Jackson was preparing to finally adapt The Hobbit into a mere two movies. And the CBS remake of Hawaii Five-0 was quickly becoming the most popular new series on television. To celebrate the show’s combustive mixture — tropical landscape, movie-level stunts, boats, helicopters — the gamemakers here at EW.com created our very own unofficial Hawaii Five-0 Bingo. With the show now an established part of the CBS lineup, we figured it would be fun to pull out the old Bingo Board for last night’s third season premiere. READ FULL STORY
Nothing says Happy Valentine’s Day like a man (or two) possibly falling to his death. “It’s the day before Valentine’s… and Five-0 has a heart-stopping new episode,” the promo for tonight’s Hawaii Five-0 promises. Watch it below. Reaching? Not so fast: What you can’t tell, is that like the rest of CBS’ Monday night lineup, Hawaii Five-0 is actually celebrating Valentine’s Day within the hour. A black tie charity event lets McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) pull his weapon while wearing a tux — which is our second favorite look for him (after “emerging from an ocean swim shirtless”).

SPOILER ALERT: It’s a popular form of cliff-hanger among character-driven procedurals to end a season with the team divided. But Hawaii Five-0 took it to an extreme last night. After Chin’s crush Laura Hill, who worked for the Governor (Jean Smart), was killed in a car bomb, McGarrett figured out that she’d been the one sending him those envelopes with evidence from his father’s tool box. That key he could never place? It unlocked a drawer in the Governor’s office, which McGarrett broke into. Turns out McGarrett’s father had been investigating the Governor before his death. (Or, at least that’s what I got out of it.) She was connected to Wo Fat. The Governor had started Five-0 so she could keep an eye on Steve. When she discovered her assistant was feeding him info, she had Wo Fat take her out — and Wo Fat was framing McGarrett for the murder. READ FULL STORY
On tonight’s Hawaii Five-0, the team investigates the murder of a sci-fi fan, which somehow leads McGarrett on the beach foot chase in the preview below (and also means we’ll have at least one square on our Hawaii Five-0 bingo card — Alex O’Loughlin runs real fast — filled in). Check it out below: READ FULL STORY
PopWatch asked readers to name the TV character they’d date in real life. After tallying more than 2,000 nominations (yes, we read them all), we’re ready to take it to a vote. We’ve put your top picks — 25 men, and 29 women (there was a tie for that last spot) — in two polls below. Vote now through Tuesday at midnight ET. Come back Friday when we’ll reveal the results. Remember: You can’t change anything about the character you’re picking, other than that he or she will no longer have feelings for his or her show love interest. (Second rule: Do not feel guilty.) Note: The order the characters are listed in the polls below is how they ranked during the first round, when you could be indecisive. What will happen when you can only pick one?

I loved last night’s episode of Hawaii Five-0. I loved the idea of an FBI safe house in the middle of paradise. I loved that the witness being chased through the jungle by assassins was played by True Blood‘s Lorena (Mariana Klaveno) and that I liked her anyway. (Excellent move by Klaveno to play a redeeming character who loves her wise, autistic sister and get a trip to Hawaii.) I loved that McGarrett felt the need to separate himself from Chin and the witness as they made their way toward the courthouse, so he could hunt the bad guys and go Rambo on them. (I also loved how he took the lengthy call from Danno as he was setting a booby trap, even though he should have just said, “I’m holding my phone in one hand and this trap in the other, so if an assassin were to stumble upon me right now, I would be dead because I can’t reach for my gun.”) I loved how Kono kicked the ass of “the cleaner,” who was posing as a member of the cartel lord’s defense team before Steve and Chin could save the day, even though I have no idea how she got there before they did.
