As you may have guessed by the title, 9-1-1: Lone Star 2×06 “Everyone and Their Brother” focused on family, specifically brothers. We get to meet Paul’s family, TK and Owen’s relationship is on the rocks, and the team searches for a new paramedic.
The 126 needs a new paramedic, and the search starts out rough. Nancy isn’t ready for a replacement for Tim, but Tommy makes her understand they can’t keep working understaffed. They bring in three candidates to test in the field, and saying it was a disaster may be an understatement. Things get worse when one of the three paramedics runs over Nancy’s foot with the ambulance.
Back to the drawing board.
Tommy finally thinks she’s found a paramedic, but we had a feeling he was too good to be true. And we were right. During one of the scariest calls ever, the team needs to rescue brothers who are trapped in the minefield. The newbie paramedic refuses to go because it’s not safe. We agree with Owen here: if you want to be safe, you’re in the wrong line of work. The job of a first responder is to rescue people. You don’t get to pick and choose which calls you participate in.
TK volunteers to go with Owen, and the two are able to get to the brothers without dying. This was a scary rescue. We were holding our breath the whole time hoping that one of the mines wouldn’t explode. We were so relieved when TK and Owen survived, and we were impressed with how TK saved the kid’s life.
TK definitely had a rough week with learning that he’s going to be a big brother. We get it: it would be weird to have a sibling young enough to be your kid, especially if you’ve been an only child your entire life. And it seemed like Owen finally scheduled his surgery because of the new baby, even though TK had pushed him for weeks. At the end, he did seem excited that the baby is a boy, and we’re glad he was there for his parents.
We don’t hate this new career move for TK, either. It could be good for him to work under someone besides his dad. I think it’ll be good for the show, too, because we’ll get to see more of the paramedics. We’re excited to see Tommy, TK, and Nancy work together.
Paul’s mother and sister visited this week, and while we loved his mom, we noticed some tension between him and his sister, Naomi. Paul transitioned while she was young, and she loved her sister. It’s not that she doesn’t love Paul, but she misses who Paul used to be.
This was an important conversation to have, and we’re impressed that 9-1-1: Lone Star went this route. We learned that transitioning can be hard for families, too, but as Paul explained, Naomi’s sister never really existed. It felt like Naomi finally accepted Paul, and we hope his family visits again.
- Grace saved the day, again. We’re pretty sure we say this every week, but it’s not every week that one conjoined twin saves another. This was definitely a first for us, but Grace did some quick thinking. Because of her, these twins not only survived, but they have a chance to repair their strained relationship.
- We like that TK confided in Judd about his feelings on having a sibling. These two have come along way since the beginning of the show.
- We loved that Nancy basically said “I told you so” to Tommy after the new paramedic didn’t work out. She had a feeling something wasn’t right. Always trust your gut.
