More details have come out regarding the return of Chris Vance in “Hawaii Five-O” Season 8 that will premiere in early October. His character, British spy Harry Langford, will appear in episode 2 titled “Kāu pahi, ko’u kua. Kāu pū, ko’u po’o” (“Your Knife, My Back. My Gun, Your Head”).
Harry’s expertise will be needed in a special mission the Task Force will be involved in.

It is speculated that over the course of “Hawaii Five-O” Season 8, the two will be figuring out if they can actually pull it off. They may be able to realize if they can move towards that direction when they leave the service.

He explained, “And who knows — the way they’re sort of going at each other, and given their different points of view with regards to building this business as something to retire into, it may never even happen!”
