The time has come to say “Aloha” to Hawaii Five-0. The CBS series wraps up its 10 season run on Friday with a series finale that ties back to the very first episode. While pilot guest stars Wo Fat (Mark Dacascos), Victor Hesse (James Marsters), and John McGarrett (William Sadler) return in flashbacks, the present finds Wo Fat’s wife (Eugenia Yuan) abducting Danny (Scott Caan) in her mission to retrieve the cypher left for Steve (Alex O’Loughlin) by his late mother.

Harley Quinn

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on DC Universe

Season Premiere

Harley Quinn (Kaley Cuoco) may have finally found closure with the world’s worst ex-boyfriend, the Joker (Alan Tudyk), at the end of last season, but now she’s got a whole bunch of new problems on her plate. With Batman (Diedrich Bader) missing in action, Gotham City is officially renounced by the U.S. government, which means there’s no one left to stop the Dark Knight’s greatest enemies from carving up the city. This season, Harley must prove she can go toe-to-toe with the big boys and secure her spot as a supervillain to fear with even more hilarious, profane violence than last time around. Batter up! —Christian Holub

Onward

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Disney+

Pixar traffics in the kind of stories that bottle up gut-wrenching, euphoric, I’m-not-crying-you’re-crying emotional devastation and inject them all straight into your veins. Twenty-two movies and 10 Oscar wins for Best Animated Feature later, this has become our drug of choice — and we need a fix. Fortunately, we’re getting it this Friday when Onward, featuring the voices of Marvel movie stars Tom Holland and Chris Pratt, arrives on the Disney+ streaming platform. It’s based on director Dan Scanlon’s own experience of losing his father at such a young age that he could barely remember him, until, as an adult, he found an old audio recording of his late dad saying the words “Hi” and “goodbye.” True story! The movie this inspired is about two elf brothers who receive a wizard’s staff with a spell to bring their pop back to life for 24 hours. When the magic falters and only conjures half of him, the trio — Ian, Barley, and the animated legs of Mr. Lightfoot — embark on a quest to finish the job before time runs out. Crying yet? —Nick Romano

Season Finale

It wasn’t supposed to end this way. Sunday’s installment of The Walking Dead was intended to be season 10's penultimate episode, but a global work-stoppage due to COVID-19 means that post-production visual effects for the season finale could not be finished in time, making this episode 15 the final hour of TWD for the foreseeable future. That’s the bad news. The good news is, showrunner Angela Kang promises it will deliver the goods. “We will see what our people have been doing in the aftermath of the Hilltop war now that some of the truth has come out,” says Kang. “You'll see our clever folks and their plans to finish out this conflict. And we'll also see this group on their own journey with the group of Ezekiel, Yumiko, and Eugene as they figure out how to deal with this new character that they've met.” That would be the splashy zombie-costume-dress-up master Princess. By the time things are all said and done, viewers should expect the temperature to reach a boiling point. “There are huge stakes for everybody that's involved,” promises Kang. “And it will feel like there's some danger for people at the end of it.” —Dalton Ross
