The twist will "carry through to next season" and will lead to Danny's "growth," Lenkov says.
"It's been something the fans probably have imagined, Danny taking Mc Garrett to his hometown." The show has yet to get a season six pickup from CBS, but Lenkov is optimistic.

They both have a lot to talk about, which they don't really get to in the finale, so I'm hoping that we resolve it at the beginning of next year and decide the fate of Catherine at that time." A tense scene came at the end, with Gabriel (Christopher Sean) threatening Chin Ho (Daniel Dae Kim) and setting up his path as the team's next nemesis, much like Wo Fat (Mark Dacascos) was in previous seasons.
