This week’s 9-1-1 featured an amazing rescue by the newest 118 member, stupid decisions made by teenagers, and Eddie continuing to struggle with his mental health. Also, we’re pretty sure there’s still hope for Maddie and Chimney.
It’s not a secret that Lucy hasn’t gotten off to the best start at the 118 with her kiss with Buck and replacing Eddie. But she made a lot of progress in “Dumb Luck.” She had one heck of a save this week when she caught the women falling from her balcony. Seriously, how incredible was that? Lucy was able to catch her and pull her back in the apartment building, and she was fine?
Of course, Lucy got a bunch of attention from the media and praise from her team. She’s not sure she deserves it though. She just thinks it was luck and not something that she should be proud of. We disagree. And so does the 118. As Buck and Bobby said, take the wins where you can find them.
This story also had a surprise ending: the lady that Lucy rescued turns out to be a trauma surgeon. So by saving her, Lucy actually saved many other people, too. It’s crazy to think about how by doing one thing or saving one person sets off a chain reaction and affects so many other people’s lives.
Did anyone else want to start singing “I saw the sign, and it opened up my eyes” after that poor lady got basically cut in half by the stop sign? No, just us? Okay. Anyway, this event led us to discover that stupid teenagers are stealing stop signs just for fun. Unfortunately, one of them gets hit by a car because the man behind the wheel didn’t see the stop sign.
This accident shakes Athena pretty hard. Athena is usually so strong, but seeing the teen’s shoes makes her think of Harry. She knows that even good kids can make dumb decisions. And one stupid decision can change your life forever. We’re glad that Bobby was there for Athena. It also looks like the teenager is going to make it in thanks to, yep, you guessed it: the surgeon that Lucy saved.
We have a feeling that after this, these teenagers aren’t going to be stealing any more stop signs.
Eddie continues to struggle with survivors guilt in “Dumb Luck,” and our hearts ache for him. We’re glad that he talked to Bobby about this as no one understands better than Bobby about losing loved ones. We’re also proud of Buck for doing research and taking Chris and Eddie to equine therapy.
At therapy, Eddie gets to see one of the kids he rescued last season thriving. This was such a great move on Buck’s part. And we never turn down a chance to see Buck, Eddie, and Chris all in the same scene. We really hope that Eddie continues to lean on Buck and Bobby throughout his therapy.
There’s Still Hope!
Maddie and Chimney had a scare this week with Jee-Yun being sick and taken to the ER. We appreciated the honest discussion that happened between Chimney and Maddie while they waited for their daughter’s test results. Also, don’t think we didn’t see them holding hands. Yeah. It’s definitely just a matter of time before these two get back together. We’ll just be over here not-so-patiently waiting.
