The team is led by Detective Steve McGarrett (O’Loughlin), a decorated Naval officer turned cop. He returned to Oahu after Hawaii’s former governor persuaded him to head up the new team, They operate under his rules with no red tape and full blanket authority to hunt down the biggest “game” in town.
