This week’s episode of 9-1-1: Lone Star was emotionally devastating. And kind of gross. We don’t know about you all, but we were not prepared to see skin melting off because of lava! We discuss “2100” below.
At the end of last week, we saw a fire next to a food truck. Except that it wasn’t a fire. It was lava. A volcano erupted and caused chaos for the entire city. The first man that was affected was just playing golf with his family when the ground opened up. When Marjan went to rescue him, she realizes his hands have melted. She has no choice though, and has to pull his hands free or else they both will die. This was absolutely gruesome. I could tell how much pain the man was in by his screams.
Back at the food truck, Millie calls 9-1-1, terrified because her truck is crawling with scorpions. After talking with Grace, she sees the lava and realizes the scorpions are trying to escape that. Grace saves the day, as usual, by getting Millie to pour vinaigrette dressing into a spray bottle. Scorpions hate the acid. It works! And Carlos shows up to rescue Millie from the lava right before it takes over her truck.
Listen, we’re glad Grace was able to help Millie. But all these bugs really bothered us. We could do without scorpions, or any insect, next week. Thanks.
After all of this, the 126 heads to a pool where there are multiple injuries. Nancy has to assist Captain Vega when a crater of lava gets stuck in a guy’s chest. She has to scoop the lava out in order to save his heart. This was an intense rescue. But what was worse was losing Tim.
Tim didn’t survive after he was brutally hit by the lava. The attack came so fast there was nothing anyone could do. Obviously everyone was upset about his death, but Nancy was the most affected since she was the closest to him. It broke our hearts to hear Nancy talk about Tim’s cat and she worried about who was going to feed him. But it made us smile when we saw Tommy take in Tim’s cat.
Even though the members of 126 are devastated, they have loved ones to go home to. We loved the ending scenes with Tommy and her kids, TK and Carlos, and, of course, Judd and Grace. We also liked that Paul comforted Marjan as she broke down. The members of the 126 will always be there for each other, and that’s why we keep watching.
“How do you feel down there?” “Kind of like a rotisserie chicken.”
“Nice scoop.” “Three summers at Avery’s ice cream.”
“Dude, why are you calling me? Who does that? You know I don’t listen to messages. Text me, dude.” “We did text you, dude. You don’t respond to either one.”
