This Friday on Hawaii Five-0, Catherine Rollins (Michelle Borth) is back in the and, of course, she turns to Steve McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin) for help. Still, he hasn't had a serious relationship since, so possibly her return. Steve McGarrett/Danny "Danno" Williams · Deb McGarrett/Leonard Cassano · Jerry *Summary: Danni & Steve begin their therapy session, & it can get his ribs are still killing him from his expedition with Catherine to Afghanistan. It started to effect our professional/personal relationship, Our friends.
I honestly didn't know what happened to you. Kono filled me in the other day. I didn't know about Adam either. She loved seeing him, having him so close was wonderful but it hurt knowing things would never be the same between them. Kono may have said that it was over with this Lynn that she mentioned but Steve had not said that.
Feeling nervous, she tried to withdraw her hand but he tightened his fingers around hers. At first I was hurt and angry but once I knew what you really were doing…. I worried," he confessed and put his other hand over their joined ones. I know you can handle yourself but that didn't erase my concern.
I handled myself into a back brace," Catherine said glumly. That is what matters. Catherine was desperately trying to figure out how she could end this gracefully.
Her back began to throb and she was feeling close to tears. Steve wasn't sure if he had moved past her leaving just as he was about to propose but he found it difficult to release her hand. Somehow he felt like she would vanish if he let go. Don't you need to get back to headquarters? I'm relieved you are doing so well. We need to talk Catherine, really talk," Steve said seriously.
You said you couldn't wait and I respect that. Everything has changed, there is nothing left to say," she said sadly. There is so much more to say. Everything is different since I learned why you really left.
I am looking at my life differently since I almost died. We have things to sort out," Steve told her. You broke my heart.
She sat up straighter, wincing in pain as she did. Why didn't you say something? I swear I had no idea. You said you needed to be needed and staying with me wasn't enough. I couldn't back out then, I was committed. Oh Steve…I wish I had known," she said as tears welled up in her eyes. I took too long to make my move. I assumed I had all the time in the world.
I'm the one who hurt you," she said as the tears trickled down her cheeks. I wish I could turn back time and change things. I should have shared my plans, talked to you about it.
I was dragging my feet, I didn't let you know that I wanted to move forward," Steve said softly. I still have feelings Catherine, I still care. I didn't lie when I said I would always love you.
I can't take back the hurt…. I wish I could. But I also am a big girl and I know what I did, I know you can't feel the same, it has to be different for you," she sniffed and wiped her eyes with the backs of her hands.
I'm still adjusting to you being home. You have some healing to do and we do have time now. We will talk about this some more," Steve insisted as he rose to his feet. Chapter 3 Steve walked into HQ and caught Kono's eye. With a nod of his head he indicated that he wanted to see her in his office.
She got up and headed there immediately. I just left her. Are you planning to visit her again soon? It doesn't matter who sent it, the fact is that I know.
She was upset when I left her, she may need a friend. I want you to be there for her. I told her that. Does she know that I wasn't the one who told you? Maybe if she knows she can talk to you it will help. She looked at him levelly.
She saw the pain that flashed across McGarrett's face at her words before he caught himself and shut it down. It is difficult to deal with how she left me," he said gruffly. I may be out of bounds here but she didn't know you were ready to propose.
Neither of you are good at ignoring duty when it calls. She didn't know how much she would hurt you. He shook his head and his lips twitched in a small smile. Like I said, she and I really need to talk. Just be there for her so she isn't alone, please? She decided that she would stop by Tripler this evening.
I still feel like a mess," Catherine said easily.

Some of her plans were falling into place and she was feeling better emotionally. She had located a place to stay after her release. Cath quickly closed the laptop so Kono couldn't see what she had been doing. I didn't mean to put you on the spot. You made a mistake in your mind and you have now apologized for it. I'm willing to bet that you apologized over and over to Steve when he was here. Steve says he cares so he just needs time to process why you went on your mission.
Once he does, he will get over why you left and you can both move on. I lied to him, just like Doris lied to him. He can't forgive that," Catherine said sadly. You did not abandon a child and let him think you were dead for years. Steve had no idea his mother was CIA and would fake her death, leaving her family behind with no goodbyes. He knows you are Navy…. You did not lie and let him think you were dead.

Shaking her head, she began to fuss with the blanket with her fee hand. He has been lied to by so many people he trusted. Doris, Joe and to a small extent his father, who didn't share his suspicions with him once he was older. I knew that I was crossing the line when I lied about leaving. My reasons for lying don't cut it. I thought I might not return from the op so I wanted to make it a clean break but still I knew I would hurt him and I did it anyway. You can't fix that. She didn't know how to convince her friend that she wasn't as dishonest as Doris had been or she hadn't jerked him around like Joe often did by being so vague with his answers.
Catherine hadn't done any of those things. You love him too much to treat him like she did. I was on that ship with her…. I am grateful for the help she gave Adam and I but she didn't seem all that sad for leaving unfinished business with her own son. Catherine continued to pick at the blanket. She could see how Kono made sense but it was difficult to believe it.
She knew how much Steve valued honesty and how frustrated he was when people lied to him. It's not like before, there is a wall between us and it is all my doing. He was planning to propose and I killed his dream…. It was bad timing. Don't give up on him, he knows the truth now," Kono encouraged her.
Then I can go into out-patient therapy and I plan to do that on the mainland. I've been looking at places in San Diego on line and I've been making arrangements for my stuff to be shipped there," Catherine said firmly.
Give Steve a chance. Stay here and do your therapy. You can stay with me, we'll be roomies. You can keep me company until Adam is released," she insisted. I thought I was strong enough to be on the same island as Steve but I'm not. It hurts too much, I can't stay here. I'm not changing my mind," Catherine said firmly. And I am requesting no visitors for the rest of my stay.
I know him, if he thinks we are communicating he will push at you because he doesn't take no for an answer. He may not forgive me but he won't let go until he has had his final say. And feel free to tell him exactly that," Cath said with a weak smile. There was no winning this argument and it would only hurt her friend to keep insisting. I hate this but I will do as you ask. Take care of yourself and take my phone calls at least.
She was determined to let her boss have a piece of her mind once she knew exactly what she wanted to say. Chapter 4 The next morning a knock on his office door had Steve looking up to see Chin Ho Kelly waiting outside. He waved him in and closed his laptop. Since the two of you talked yesterday, I figured you know who she went to see," Chin began. It sounds like you both need to process some things.
Is she planning on staying on Oahu? Catherine jokingly asks if he deputizing her, but Steve ask it's just in case. Catherine says she'll fine one last time before kissing Steve goodbye.
Catherine walks into the private club, held on a docked ship, and spots her target easily, it's Nabushi. She notices that he just lost a game, she moves closer and says betting against the table hasn't been working for him. She then leans In and whispers in his ear that maybe he could get lucky some other way, and walks away.
Nabushi trails after her. Catherine leads him to a deserted bathroom and gives Nabushi a seductive look when he finally catches up to her.
She walks up to him and holds out her hand. Nabushi goes to kiss it and asks if they're met before. Catherine spins him around and pins him to the wall with a gun pressed to the side of his face. Nabushi asks her what she wants, and Catherine says she wants to know where Riku Sato is. Instead of answering, Nabushi breaks Catherine's hold the two begin to fight. Nabushi has to upper hand at the start before Catherine turns the tables on him.
She pins him to the floor with his own baton and then punches him the face. Nabushi asks who the hell is she. Catherine pulls out her badge and asks Five-O and asks again when is Sato. Catherine has Nabushi is a headquarters interrogation cell.
He tells her he doesn't know a Sato. Catherine tells him he doesn't have a very good poker face. She then tells him what she knows about his personal life, in depth information on his family. She says she can help but first he's got to tell her where she can find Sato.
Nabushi asks what she wants with Sato, but Catherine says she doesn't care about Sato, she just wants to ask him about Adam. Catherine later tells the team that she got a location on Sato and a full surveillance package from Nabushi, that includes address, structural blueprints, security system, and activity logs for his staff.
She then hands Steve back the 5-O badge and thanks him for it. Steve tells her to keep it, she needs a job and they need some help. Catherine says yes to joining and Steve welcomes her to 5-O.
Kono questions Sato to the location of Adam, when Sato doesn't answer Kono presses a gun to his head and asks if Adam is dead. Catherine holds a voice recorder towards Sato and tells him to confess to the murder Adam. Sato then tells Kono if Adam was smart he'd never show his face again and if she was smart she'd let it go. After they've done speaking, Catherine and Steve take Sato to the drop point and they'll meet Chin and Kono at the plane.
Catherine is with Chin when Steve calls about the kidnapping of Ian Wright. She hears the EMT say that Steve injury is only a flesh wound, she quickly asks if he's alright. Steve says he's fine and that he's sent her the fingerprints of two of the kidnappers that were killed. Steve asks her to find out who they were. Catherine finds out who introduced Ian and the bank robbing crew. She tries to get the information to show in the big monitors but is unable to swipe it from her tablet.
Chin helps and tells her she'll get the hang of it, she says she ruined her own dramatic entrance with a smile. She then explains her suspect, Eli Diamond. When the team figures out Ian's plan, Steve tells Catherine to call the security department to tell them their systems been hacked. She quickly does that. Later when Steve and Grover have tracked Ian to the airport, Catherine calls Steve that she's reached out to Naval Intelligence and they've been developing protocols to defend against these types of cyber attacks.
The Navy is sending her a copy of the prototype, however it's only been tested on simulated attacks. Catherine says that fine, because it means the two computers are connected, and she just needs to use one to get to the other. Catherine tries to find the original computer, but Ian has scrambled the IP addresses and she can't get a lock.
Steve calls Catherine back and tells her to check out the IP addresses, and to see if any are near Oahu State. Catherine finds the correct computer, at the computer science building of Oahu State. She then tells Steve she on her way there now.
Catherine enters the computer science building and searches the computers. She notices one teenager just sitting at a computer reading a magazine, she walks up to him and asks what is doing.
Catherine shows hi a picture of Ian and asks if that's his friend. The boy says yes and Catherine tells him to get up and out of the seat. She then sits down and plugs the USB with the prototype on it into the computer. When the prototype is finally unloaded she answers Steve's phone call to tell him he can arrest Ian now. She later tells Steve and Grover that they made the right decision with putting Ian on that plane in the first places even if he got away.
In Ha'uoli La Ho'omoaika'iCatherine is playing in a thanksgiving family football game with the team, Grace, Kamekona and other family members. During one play she catches a throw by Steve only to be be picked by and thrown over Danny's shoulder a moment later.
Danny and Steve meet Catherine at the crime scene and them what she knows so far. A body was found in a barrel filled with lye. Back at headquarters she results back from Max's autopsy and something found in the victim's neck.
She hands it to Steve who sees that it's a medical alert id, the victim was Kyle Russo and he was secret service. Steve and Catherine go to the hotel where the secret service are preparing for the arrival of the president. The conservation leads Campbell to believe that they now have a threat to the president. Aunt Deb doesn't believe that for a second and they both laugh. Catherine tells her that Steve has asked her to take her back to Steve's place, Aunt Deb asks if Steve told her anything else.
Catherine pauses before saying she is so sorry to hear about her illness. Aunt Deb then says she's not ready to back yet, Catherine asks her where she wants to go. Aunt Deb asks Catherine to take her to the most beautiful place on the island. Catherine says she knows just the place. Catherine takes Aunt Deb to a beautiful deserted beach.
While there Aunt Deb says to Catherine that she's figures Catherine is going to be around for awhile and asks her to make sure Mary and Steve stay close once she's gone.
They'll need each other even if they don't admit it. Catherine says she promises and Aunt Deb thanks her. After dropping Aunt Deb back at Steve's, Catherine is back at headquarters.
Steve calls her to ask about Andrea Hicks, Catherine explains that according to the FBI Andrea witnessed the murder of a high-ranking member of a Russian crime family. The FBI wanted to talk to her, instead she went into hiding. The family hired a hitman to shut her up for good. Steve asks Catherine to keep looking for Andrea. Catherine is at Steve's house when he gets back from meeting the president, she greets him with a kiss.
She is also there when Thanksgiving dinner plans are changed, she and the group end up at La Mariana Tiki Bar. She and the group enjoy a song sung by Aunt Deb. In the middle of a hand, she gets a phone call. She is unable to hear the other person, so she excuses herself and goes outside. Steve follows her out and asks if everything is okay.
Catherine ignores him and speaks Pashto to the person on the other end of the call. Catherine says she needs Steve's help. Catherine and Steve are at Headquarters where Catherine tells Steve the story of Amir and his family that helped her when an op of hers went sideways. Catherine then tells Steve that Amir called her because his son was taken by the Taliban and Catherine has decided that she has to go back and help them get their son back.
Steve says he understands wanting to help, but she needs to tell the military and let them handle it. Catherine disagrees and says that it'll take to long, as the military has to verify everything Amir said to her and that could take days or weeks, while she could be there by dawn. Steve asks how she could do that, as she's not on active duty anymore. She can just jump on a plane and get there. Catherine says that's where Steve comes in, and Joe White comes in. She needs Steve to talk to him and get her into Afghanistan under the radar.
When Steve tells that that's crazy, she tells him she's doing it with or without his help. Steve reluctantly says he'll call Joe. Catherine is waiting in line to board a plane at the airport, when she hears Steve call out from behind her. He tells her that he wasn't going to let her go alone.
He gives her a hug and a kiss, then tells her he's got the window seat. In the Baoakhan Province, Catherine and Steve ride into the village on horseback. They quickly make their way to Amir's house, his wife let's them in. Amir's wife, Farah, hugs Catherine and Catherine introduces Steve to her. She then asks where Amir is. Farah says he left an hour before, having heard where the kidnapper were.
Steve and Catherine leave the village on horseback to track down Amir. They stop at the sight of blood, and they both dismount.(Hawaii Five-0) McRoll (Steve x Cath) - Remember When
Guns drawn, they continue on foot. They find Amir at the base of a tree, unconscious and badly wounded. Catherine goes to him and tries to wake him up. Amir wakes and is surprised to see Catherine has come. Amir explains that he tried to rescue Najib, but there were to many for his to fight, which caused his GSW to the stomach. Catherine holds his face and promises that Steve and her are going to get his son back.
Catherine and Steve bring Amir back to his house and tend to his wound. Catherine then spots a worn soccer ball and explains to Steve that this is what brought her, Amir and Naji together. Steve is confused and says he thought battlefield trauma is what brought them together.
Catherine tells Steve about meeting Amir and Najib and helping them a year before they found her and helped her. Amir then wakes up and asks about Najib, Catherine promises that their going to find him. Steve asks Amir if he knows which group took Najib.
Amir replies that it was a splinter group under the command of Umar Hassan. Catherine says that's impossible, as Umar Hassan was killed two years prior in a drone strike. Amir is convinced he is alive and his men took his son. Catherine is on her laptop and asks Steve to take a look at a satellite image of a nearby village. Steve notices two pickup trucks in the image, Amir had said Najib was taken by two pickups.
Catherine says it's got to be the kidnappers. Steve says the village looks fortified and he doesn't think they can take it. Catherine agrees and says their best option is to engage them somewhere along a nearby road. Steve asks way she's so sure they take that road when they move out.
Catherine says that Amir mentioned rumors of a Taliban camp in the south and the road is the only way to get there.
As the pickup trucks are stopped by Steve in disguise, Catherine - who was hiding in the long grass - makes her way to the last pickup. She pulls up the back flap and finds a large group of children.
She asks the children if anyone has seen Najib, the children shake their heads. She then opens up the back of the pickup and helps the children escape. One child falls down, alerting the driver, who exits the front of the pickup with his gun. Catherine quickly shoots him down but that alerts the rest of the kidnappers. Steve and Catherine engage in gun fire, Catherine manages to shoot down another kidnapper and calls from Steve.
He tells her to get the kids and go. It will be interesting to see if having his two teammates living with him is enough to fill in some of the emptiness of the McGarrett home— at least for a little while. Steve admits they are good but are just keeping it casual. After a year without a girlfriend in his life, the discussion with Cath about marriage, and his talk with Danno about wanting his own family, really shows how much McGarrett wants a real relationship in his life.
If nothing else, it does open the door for one of these important ladies to either return to his world, or for someone new to enter. Wendie Burbridge is a published author, playwright, and teacher. Reach her at Five0Redux gmail.
