'Hawaii Five-0' Season 3: The gang's all here ... right?

Behold one of the first (unofficial) images from Season 3 of "Hawaii Five-0." It comes from Daniel Dae Kim, who shared the photo with his 74,000-plus Twitter followers early Friday (July 13)."Family portrait. 1st #H50 pick of season 3," Kim writes. But you'll recall at the end of last season, Kim's Chin Ho Kelly had to make a Sophie's choice between saving his wife, Malia, (Reiko Aylesworth) and his cousin Kono (Grace Park). It turned out to be a false choice, and the last we saw of Kono, she was being pushed over the side of a boat.But there's Park with Kim, Scott Caan and Alex O'Loughlin, and she's apparently ready for some pretty heavy gunplay, given all the clips strapped to her chest.
