This episode of 9-1-1 picked up right where last week left off: with the mudslide. Athena’s trapped in a house that’s sliding down a cliff. We’ll come back to Athena later, but first we want to discuss some other issues from “Alone Together”.
The first rescue this week was to the “Quaranteam.” Did anyone have any doubt the 118 would save the guy trapped in the mud? We didn’t. But while the 118 worked on him, he told his best friend’s girlfriend that he loved her. She said it back, but she really didn’t mean it. This is going to be fun for the three of them when they get back home.
We’re guessing this “quaranteam” is probably going to break up. Also, how funny was it when the guy professed his love, and poor Hen had to just sit there and listen.
While that was happening, Buck and Chim look for a missing baby. They definitely did not expect to find a bunch of pregnant women trapped in a room. Turns out, Carol had locked them all up. Creepy. And, as if things weren’t bad enough, one of the ladies goes into labor, and Chim has to deliver the baby.
And now, we’re back to Athena. We know she was scared trying to get out of a house, but she stayed pretty calm and focused on rescuing Sylvia. It just amazes us that she stays strong after everything that has happened to her. We also loved the ending where Bobby finds her, and gets her home safely. He’s always there for Athena when she needs him.
After a intense day at work, the members of the 118 went home to spend time with their families. We loved seeing Christopher again (we’ve missed you!), and we’re very interested in seeing how Buck living with Albert goes. Apparently, Albert doesn’t do chores. Also, Buck does have a girlfriend. The woman he’s been messaging is his therapist. Nice twist. We’re glad 9-1-1 is normalizing therapy and mental health.
And, finally, we’re so excited about Chim coming home to Maddie. We just can’t get over how cute they are! We love Maddie and Chim, and we’re glad Chim realized he needs to be at home.
“Carol didn’t make it. I’m feeling less bad about that.”
“You’re not supposed to drink coffee!” “It’s one cup a day. Back off people!”
“When we are on those calls, we’re someone else’s lifeline. Our voices… it’s the only thing that they have to hold on to. So we don’t get to panic.”
Don’t forget to watch next week as the 118 heads to Texas, and we finally get to see these guys interact with the 9-1-1: Lone Star team. We can’t wait!
