The original 9-1-1 is back! As much as I love Lone Star, it was really nice to see Buck, Bobby, and the rest of the 118 again. “Seize the Day” featured some crazy rescues but also gave us some great stories about the crew’s personal lives. Let’s discuss:
At the beginning of “Seize the Day” Buck gets a clean bill of health. This is fantastic news, and it means that he can officially be a firefighter again. I have a feeling the rest of this season is going to be intense so it’s a good thing he’s back.
The first rescue is absolutely insane. A mother and daughter attempt skydiving, but their adventure doesn’t go quite as planned. The instructor’s parachute gets stuck, and he ends up flying underneath the plane until the firefighters can get to him. This would be my worst nightmare. I have no desire to ever go skydiving because with my luck, this would happen to me. Hopefully the instructor has no memory of this. Talk about being scarred for life.
My favorite call was definitely to the restaurant. Justin can’t bring himself to talk to his crush, Miles. But then some construction workers run into Justin and hit him with a metal pole. He can’t breathe, and Miles calls 911. It was hysterical when the lady read Justin’s poem to Miles. I guess that’s one way to talk to your crush. But there have to be less painful ways to get a guy’s attention besides getting hit by construction workers.
The team had plenty of drama outside of work this week. Chim’s half-brother, Albert, shows up, and Chim isn’t sure how to feel about this. He doesn’t know Albert that well, and he’s jealous. He knows his father likes Albert more, and he’s afraid everyone will like him more, too. Luckily, Maddie talks to Chim and makes him see that he does have a family. Chim makes up with Albert, and I look forward to seeing the two of them getting to know each other better.
Michael is still battling his cancer. Radiation isn’t working very well so he decides to have surgery. But at the end of the episode he changes his mind after talking with his daughter. He wants to focus on his life, not his death. I hope that Michael beats this cancer, but I like his outlook. He needs to make the most of the time he does have.
- I loved the ending with everyone hanging out together. And Eddie is right, the 118 is the family they chose for themselves.
- Hen’s list of talking points was great. I loved that Buck didn’t know what a bassoon is.
- I was completely grossed out by the man who swallowed the fish. Just another reason not to go fishing.
