Hawaii Five-0 - Season 3 Episode 2 - "Kᾱnalua"

"I’ve been waiting for the return of Ed Asner to Hawaii Five-0 because you just knew his character wouldn’t be allowed to get away scot-free after committing murder and robbery.  I thought the story would resume with the Five-0 team on the hunt for the ex-con, but it appears that once again they’re asking for his assistance.  Asner is listed as a “recurring character,”  but executive producer Peter Lenkov has said that the August March storyline is wrapped up in this episode.  This is sad because he so beautifully pulled off the dual personas of the cantankerous, but lovable reformed career criminal and cold-blooded murderer. 
 This chapter of Five-0 also adds to the list of “24” alumnus who’ve guest-starred on the show.  Carlos Bernard, who played Jack Bauer’s frenemy Tony Almeida, appears here as U.S. Marshal Chris Channing of the WITSEC (Witness security) division.
Hawaii native Keo Woolford returns as Sgt. Chang, the man who arrested McGarrett in last season’s opener.  If you’ve watched the commentary feature on the Season 2 DVD, you’ll know that Keo in addition to being an actor, is quite the hula dancer.  He’s also just one of at least six locals making guest appearances in “Kᾱnalua.”"

"I’m not really ready to say goodbye to August March, but with the storyline penned by Joe Halpin this should be a good one, so bring it on.  This is also the episode that sees the team say goodbye to Chin Ho’s wife Malia.  If Daniel Dae Kim’s performance in last week’s show was any indication of what’s in store for tonight, the paddle-out should be quite a moving experience.
“Kᾱnalua*” – McGarrett asks Catherine for her help in locating his mother and the team calls on August March (guest star Edward Asner) for his assistance when an art heist turns deadly, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Monday, Oct. 1 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Yes, it was obvious that he's going to show up again, since his case have not been closed.
