This season finale of 9-1-1: Lone Star was intense! In “A Bright and Cloudless Morning”, Judd tries to escape from the building that exploded last week, and Owen has flashbacks after learning some troubling news. We were also treated to a surprise ending that made us smile.
“A Bright and Cloudless Morning” began where last week ended: with Judd going to ask for Wyatt to get another chance at this job interview. It looked like he was in the elevator, but luckily he was already out when the explosion happened. He was injured as rubble fell on his leg and rebroke it. Judd has more bad luck with leg injuries than anyone else we know.
He’s able to help direct everyone away from the part of the building that collapsed into a safer area. He’s helped out by Wyatt’s soon-to-be-boss and co-workers and walks down the stairs to safety. The rest of the 118 is relieved when Judd walks out those doors especially Grace.
We say this every episode, but Grace and Judd’s relationship is the best on television. And Grace was one of the reasons that Judd was able to make it to safety. She looked at the building plans and saw the best way out. We definitely want her on our side when we’re in trouble.
Throughout this episode, Owen has flashbacks about his life including September 11 and being with Gwyn. We’re pretty sure they’re triggered by learning he has a new spot on his lung that could be cancer. Later in the episode as he’s trapped, he flashes back to being in the World Trade Center.
This was heartbreaking knowing what happened that day and all the people Owen couldn’t save. Owen clearly still carries that day around with him. We wish we could reach through the TV and give him a hug.
He is rescued from the building (we kind of knew the show wasn’t going to kill off Rob Lowe‘s character) and he learns he doesn’t have cancer. We laughed at him celebrating his fungal infection with Tommy. Usually having a fungal infection isn’t something to celebrate, but when the alternative is cancer, it’s probably the best news ever.
We’re glad he doesn’t have cancer, and it looks like Owen is taking steps toward to having a happier future. We’re looking forward to seeing a happy, healthy Owen in season 4.
We were kind of surprised that TK and Carlos got engaged in this finale, but we’re not complaining at all. We loved how happy they both are and how excited everyone at the 126 is for them. When the show comes back next season it will be all about their engagement and wedding planning.
We can’t wait! We’re wondering who they’ll choose as they best men as this won’t be an easy decision. This was a wonderful way to end the season.
- We laughed when TK woke up Carlos and Carlos’ first reaction was to ask if the lizard got out again. LOL.
- How adorable was it that Grace is listed on Judd’s phone as “My Heart.” So cute.
- We weren’t crazy about Wyatt and him being Judd’s son at first, but we’ve come to care about him.
Judd: “It’s 9-1-1.” Civilian: “9-1-1 called him? Yeah, I’m sticking with that dude.”
TK: “He was updating his will.” Nancy: “Was he taking you out of it?”
Judd: “Maybe we can have a word about my son getting this job if we make it out.” Mr. Keller: “He’s already got the job. And if we actually get out of here he’s already been promoted.”
