After’s last week’s 9-1-1: Lone Star, we said we were we were relieved the ice storm was over. Well, it’s over, and our favorite characters have all sorts of new issues in “Child Care.” And we’re going to be honest: we’re not happy about all of them.
We’re going to start this review with something we did like: Carlos. We love Carlos and TK together, but we’re glad 9-1-1: Lone Star is finally focusing on developing his character more. He really shined this episode as he went above and beyond to find Katie and rescue her from her super creepy nanny. If it wasn’t for him, then who knows what would have happened to that poor girl. We’re interested to see if Carlos decides to take the detective’s exam. We need more cops like Carlos in our world.
Also, that nanny cam seriously freaked us out. The voice that the nanny used was terrifying. We’re pretty sure Katie’s going to need therapy after that because there’s no way we could sleep after hearing that voice every night.
One Night Strand
Now, moving on to Owen. Honestly, his dating life is just not that exciting. And as wonderful as Amy Acker is, this episode spent way too much time on his date. The car chase and tracking down Katie was the best part. Look, we want Owen to be happy, but we really don’t need to hear about all the dating apps he’s on or hear about all of his one night stands. Thanks.
Now, the real problem we had with “Child Care”: Judd and Grace. They were perfect. They were so happy with a new baby. Why did the show decide to create drama between these two? We didn’t need it. We know that Judd and Grace are going to do right by Judd’s newly found son, but we just don’t think the writers needed to go there. Judd, Grace, and Charlie were fine just the three of them.
We do have to give some props to Judd. He let Grace feel her feelings. He let her vent, and that’s sometimes what we need. Someone just to listen to us without trying to solve or give advice. And even though Grace was upset, she put aside her feelings and invited the mother of Judd’s son over for dinner. She really is the best.
We’ll see how Judd’s new son factors into the show. We’ll probably be seeing more of him soon. Even if we’re still not thrilled with this new development.
