It’s been a while since we’ve seen the entire 118 in the same place at the same time, and we’re happy that everyone was reunited in “May Day”. The team comes together to rescue one of their own, and Eddie seems to have found his way again. But there’s a surprise twist at the end that we’re still trying to wrap our heads around. Let’s review.
The Quiet Room
At the beginning of this week’s 9-1-1, it’s clear that May is fed up with Claudette, and we can’t really blame her. Claudette has treated May terribly since Day 1, and May finally stood up for herself. Unfortunately, she did it in front of everyone so Sue takes May and Claudette to the “quiet room” for a time out.
While the two are up in that room, a fire breaks out in the call center. May and Claudette are forgotten about as Eddie alerts everyone else to evacuate. The two of them finally start to work on their issues as they realize the fire is right outside the door. At this time, Bobby steps in and becomes the Captain we all know and love. He knows he has to rescue May.
May does her best to keep Claudette focused during the fire. She hates fire and pretty much has a panic attack. We were very impressed with May, and Corinne Massiah was amazing in these scenes. Bobby finds May right before the ceiling collapses. Luckily, May is okay. We think Claudette is fine, too (at least physically), but unfortunately her pressure bottoms out in the ambo, and we lose her.
Hen thinks this whole thing is strange. As she says, Claudette was fine. She also things it’s weird that “Monday” said that he should have been able to save her. Hen’s never really been fond of him and she thinks her gut is telling her there’s something off. Did “Monday” kill Claudette?
Needless to say, if he did, that’s beyond terrible. Claudette wasn’t our favorite person, but she didn’t deserve to die. Plus, we feel awful for May for having to go through this whole ordeal.
We have to give it to the writers: we didn’t see this coming. But kudos for them for actually having a purpose for this guy instead of only being Chim’s temporary replacement. We’re really interested to see how this plays out and we’re hoping Hen can stop this before anyone else dies.
God Has Spoken
We had chills when Eddie announced “This is Firefighter Eddie Diaz” over his radio. We know he’s been through a rough patch, but it was good to see him back in action. Fighting fires and rescuing people is truly what he is meant to do, and we were so glad he was back with the 118 this week. We wonder when he will rejoin the 118 permanently?
- Anyone else shed a tear when May called Bobby her dad? It’s true. Bobby loves May and is her father in every way that matters.
- Taylor definitely noticed Buck and Lucy’s bond in this episode. And she wasn’t wrong with what she said to Lucy: Buck doesn’t do well when the 118 falls apart. Will this make Lucy stay away? Or is this signaling the end for Buck and Taylor?
