The season finale of 9-1-1: Lone Star was an emotional one. Tommy is still figuring out life without Charles, the members of the 126 start work at their new firehouses, and Grace returns to work. Oh, and there’s the small matter of the dust storm.
In “Dust to Dust”, Paul, Judd, and Marjan are assigned to the same firehouse that sounds pretty wonderful. Mateo, on the other hand, isn’t so lucky. He’s pretty much assigned to the worst house where they refer to him as “grunt”. Lovely. He doesn’t even get to go on calls because he’s on lunch duty.
After getting lunch for his new firehouse, Mateo gets caught in the dust storm. It was kind of funny how he was so concerned about the food. But then he focuses and helps the people injured in the plane crash. He really steps up and impresses the rest of the 126. Owen is so impressed that he announces Mateo is no longer “Probie” and officially a member of the 126.
After Owen turns down the deputy chief position to stay with the 126, they start cleaning up their firehouse so they can get back in action sooner. But Billy shows up and announces he has taken the deputy chief job. He also announces he has decided to shut down the 126 house. Permanently. Then Owen punches Billy. But not before double checking that he’s not the deputy chief yet. While we don’t usually condone violence, we definitely understand Owen’s actions. Billy can’t really shut the firehouse down, can he? This can’t happen!
While all of the firemen are happy to return to work, Tommy decides to stay at home. Charles had a nice life insurance policy and she thinks her girls need her at home. She tells Nancy and TK, and Nancy takes it very hard. We didn’t know that she loved Tommy so much. But then after Tommy helps with the dust storm, she decides she wants to stay. We’re relieved as we’ve grown attached to Tommy, and we love Gina Torres. We know it’ll be hard for Tommy to manage the girls with the job, but she’ll figure it out. She has a wonderful support system with Grace, Judd, and the rest of the 126.
We’re so happy that Grace returned to work, and her colleagues were excited to have her back. The little welcome back party they threw her was so cute. We can tell that she missed her job, and we’re glad her recovery has gone so well. We can’t wait to see Grace back at the 9-1-1 call center next season.
- How cute was Carlos with Tommy’s daughters? We think he should babysit more often.
- We’re going to see more of Nancy next season as Brianna Baker is now a series regular. We’ve enjoyed getting to know Nancy this year, and we can’t wait to learn more about her.
We loved the second season of 9-1-1: Lone Star, and we’re excited for season three. The show will return midseason on Fox.
