Two episodes of Magnum P.I. make up the season finale tonight (May 8) on CBS, and like previous weeks, both episodes feature guest stars from Hawaii Five-0 including Ian Anthony Dale and Kimee Bamilero. One episode also features Zachary Knighton’s wife Betsy Phillips in the guest cast!
At 9PM ET/PT, CBS airs the first episode of the night which is called “May the Best One Win.” In it, Magnum and Higgins are each hired by a different spouse who are in the middle of a contentious divorce to dig up dirt on the other, and Thomas and Higgins soon find themselves competing over resources. Also, Rick and TC look into the death of an unidentified man and must share the news with his estranged daughter, Suzy Madison (Betsy Phillips, wife of series star Zachary Knighton). The episode is directed by Rocky Carroll of NCIS fame.
Corbin Bernsen guest stars as Icepick in the second episode of the night, “A Leopard on the Prowl” airing at 10PM ET/PT. In that one, Magnum and Higgins help Rick when his father figure, Icepick (Corbin Bernsen), just out of prison and battling terminal cancer, gets double crossed on one last score. Also, Magnum makes one last bold move to help Higgins stay in the country. Hawaii Five-0′s Ian Anthony Dale and MMA’s Cowboy Cerrone appear in the episode.
Preview images for both of the episodes can be found below.
