9-1-1: Lone Star Season 2 Episode 10 Evaluate: A Little Assist From My Pals


Lone Star has been killing it!

What wasn’t there to like about 9-1-1: Lone Star Season 2 Episode 10? It was an hour with an outlandish case, a candy finish end result for one more, an intervention, and a hilarious duo I did not know we would have liked.

It was such a well-balanced, heartwarming, emotional, and pleasant hour.

One of many few criticisms of Lone Star in comparison with its predecessor is that always Owen did not have the same Den Dad vibe of Bobby Nash. As a rule, he shaped bonds and interacted most together with his son and Judd.

However by conserving him tied right down to the identical two or three characters, we missed out on enjoyable dynamics like Owen and Mateo. Who noticed that duo coming?

It is a testomony to how properly T.Okay. is doing in his life that he is transferring in with Carlos proper now. When you consider the trajectory of this character and his growth since 9-1-1: Lone Star Season 1 Episode 1, it is exhausting to not get emotional.

He is come such a great distance, and what began as Owen dragging his son to Austin for a contemporary begin turned T.Okay. discovering love, household, function, private development, and happiness.

Carlos on the Way - tall  - 9-1-1: Lone Star Season 2 Episode 10

It is lovely. T.Okay. made a profession shift to a paramedic, and he not solely appears pleased with it, nevertheless it’s a pure match, and he is thriving within the place.

He and Carlos are as pleased as could be, and transferring in collectively is an enormous step for them. He is sober, and he is developed a close-knit bond together with his squad. Life appears good for him, and it is what Owen hoped for, nevertheless it occurs that T.Okay’s progress is occurring at a time when Owen is in inflow.

Owen remains to be reeling from Gwyn’s departure, and this child he was enthusiastic about not being his. He is cancer-free, however the potential for one thing going improper nonetheless looms over him. And now that T.Okay. is prospering, Owen looks like he is not wanted as a lot anymore.

With T.Okay. gone, it compelled Owen to cope with his emotions, and people are the final issues he needed to face.

He jumped on the alternative for Mateo to maneuver in with him, and actually, it was the perfect scenario for each characters and made for pure leisure.

Owen would not spend a lot time with any of the opposite squad members on a private stage. He cares about them, they usually respect him as their captain, however their paths did not cross exterior of labor usually.

However Mateo gave a lonely Owen somebody to spend his time with and distract himself from the empty nest syndrome he is experiencing with T.Okay. gone.

Additionally, Mateo is a pure delight as a personality with a youthful wholesomeness that may attraction to Owen and provides him the companionship and camaraderie he craves.

Mateo is not one who’d flip Owen down or say no, in order that’s how the poor man ended up hungover off tequila and spilling Owen’s secret drunken confessions.

Owen canceling his surgical procedure is according to how he views issues. T.Okay. hit the nail on the pinnacle on the intervention. Part of Owen is scared that they may get all of the most cancers, and he will not have that to cling to or use to beat up on himself.

Owen’s Survivor’s Guilt is robust, and he cannot fairly shake it. He all the time thought-about most cancers his punishment for making it out of the towers and surviving his buddies.

A brand new child was one thing that gave him a brand new sense of function, however then that was ripped away from him. Owen likes to punish himself, and it is virtually as if he cannot enable himself to be pleased.

Owen's Intervention - tall  - 9-1-1: Lone Star Season 2 Episode 10

He self-sabotages, and he willingly makes himself a martyr when he would not have to, and it is unhappy.

The others have been proper about him being depressed, and it is a lot deeper than current occasions. It is bone-deep for him.

The intervention was an awesome scene. Positive, it was amusing to no finish, and it gave us all these household feels with the children calling dad out on his actions, nevertheless it additionally was crucial for him.

Owen: I understand how to roll with the punches.
Judd: No, you’re taking the punches, after which once they’re all finished, you go discover some extra.

Owen wanted to know that the others are taking note of his habits and that they’re involved and wish higher for him. It is humorous that almost all of them did not know what to say, however Judd all the time is aware of tips on how to get straight to the purpose.

After 9-1-1: Lone Star Season 2 Episode 9, Judd’s enter carried extra weight than ever because it’s evident he and Owen are extra related than we might have imagined. Earlier than Grace, Judd was completely misplaced, and he would not let himself be pleased, letting the previous maintain a agency grip on him.

And there was the suicide ideation and despair, too. Whereas Owen is not suicidal, he is additionally proven the place he is not afraid to die and sometimes welcomes it.

If anybody might perceive Owen, it is Judd. And despite the fact that Owen took his time listening to them out, after the scare with Buttercup, he acknowledged all that they mentioned, and he reveals indicators of wanting higher for himself.

I additionally admire that Owen acknowledged how tousled it was when he referred to the potential new child as if he did not have already got T.Okay. 

Owen’s second bonding with the poor child with no buddies was each amusing and a bit unhappy. However that is what made the circumstances stand out throughout this installment.

The ice cream fiasco took the cake with its gnarliness and traditional 9-1-1 franchise madness!

Was I the one one who needed to smack all of these ignorant teenagers filming all the factor and laughing? Why are youngsters absolutely the worst?!

The season has given us some ugly circumstances; I”m speaking typically you wish to flip away from the display screen it is so gross, nevertheless it’s superior, too!

However the perfect half about how properly the crew dealt with that case was that each staff have been so grateful, they provided free ice cream for all times. It was peak 126 to make use of that to their benefit and assist the little man make some buddies for his birthday.

I really like these full-circle moments, and it was sufficient to make you smile.

Owen wasn’t the one one requiring some assist; Gracie did too.

It is not in the slightest degree shocking that somebody who dedicates her complete life to serving to different individuals would not know tips on how to obtain any of it.

Her restoration from the accident wasn’t going properly for her, and it left her feeling helpless. We are able to think about {that a} doting Judd was much more so understanding he virtually misplaced his spouse and that she’s carrying their youngster now.

He is most likely been smothering her.

However she’s an impartial girl to a fault, and she or he could not assist pushing herself past her limits.

It is one factor to be that cussed when it is your well being you are nervous about, however she’s having a child now, and with each transfer she made, I used to be afraid she’d fall or one thing.

The entire crunching noises that occurred when Grace bought to the automobile — they weren’t placing anybody comfortable.

You already know you are a cussed individual if you’d relatively sit in a automobile for six hours earlier than reaching out and calling somebody for assist. Good grief, girl!

She has so many individuals who care about her, from her mom and father to Charles and Tommy. Thank goodness she reached out to Tommy when she did.

The connection between the Ryders and the Vegas is likely one of the brightest spots of this season, and Tommy’s friendship with each Judd and Grace is proof.

Judd might open up to Tommy at work about how Grace wasn’t dealing with issues properly or accepting the assistance she wanted, and when Grace reached out to her, she was the right individual to provide her some recommendation about leaning on family members.

Gracie, asking for assist doesn’t suggest that you simply’re weak. It implies that you are clever.


From discussing how tough it was as a lady, and likewise as a Black girl, permitting oneself to be weak, Tommy managed to get via to Grace.

It was a aid when she requested Judd for assist by the tip of the hour, and he was greater than prepared to help, good hubby that he’s.

It was good to get extra time with Grace on the non-public homefront relatively than the calls, despite the fact that these are the best possible and all the time a spotlight.

Total, it was the right stability of non-public story arcs and character and dynamic constructing together with participating circumstances.

You are as powerful as they got here, ain’t ya woman? However you must know higher than to be attempting to get round with no hand.


It felt as if everybody bought time to shine, and the group and crew dynamic have been robust. It felt like a household. It made for one of many strongest installments of the season thus far.
