9-1-1: Lone Star Season 2 Episode 6 Evaluate: Everybody And Their Brother


Lastly, some Paul content material!

Paul Strickland rivals Grace and Mateo for being 100% pure sunshine. It is all the time a deal with after we spend extra time with him, and 9-1-1: Lone Star Season 2 Episode 6 launched us to his household as properly.

The strongest a part of the hour was these compelling scenes with the Strickland household.

Paul's Family- Tall - 9-1-1: Lone Star Season 2 Episode 6

First off, I’ve to commend the collection for breaking the mould with how they selected to showcase the stress between Paul and his sister. Little question, displaying the realities of transgender folks is important, and that does typically embody transphobia by the people who find themselves supposed to like them essentially the most.

Nevertheless, that is not the solely story there’s to inform. It will’ve been straightforward and predictable for the collection to take that route, however as a substitute, the present dug deeper and captured the complexities of what it is like for a household when their cherished one transitions.

Sometimes, the main target falls on the transgender individual and what the expertise is like for them, and whereas, clearly, there’s narrative significance with that, not often is it area to the touch on how tough it’s for his or her family members with out leaping to the quick conclusion that no matter complicated emotions expressed are rooted in transphobia.

Far From Home  - 9-1-1: Lone Star Season 2 Episode 6

Paul and his household have been estranged. His mom appeared to have accepted her son as he’s, and we prevented all the rigidity that might include that, however Naomi was frosty.

It was straightforward for Paul to imagine that Naomi did not settle for his transition, however as a substitute, it was extra sophisticated than that. It wasn’t his transition she had a difficulty with however relatively this notion that she was imagined to neglect she ever had a sister.

You say I am mad since you left, no. I am mad as a result of she did. And she or he by no means mentioned goodbye.


She was 9 years outdated when Paul left, and she or he idolized her huge sister, and subsequent factor you recognize, all the images and recollections have been taken down and erased, and her sister was gone for good.

She received a brother, but it surely wasn’t the identical and did not make up for presumably on a regular basis she spent with a sister that she did not really feel she had area to acknowledge or bear in mind with out hurting Paul.

Naomi was experiencing a type of grief. She did not really feel as if she had room to mourn the lack of her sister. She mentioned it felt as if he killed her. And it is such a sound, completely human response to the scenario that does not scale back acceptance into some black or white factor.

Two Peas in a Pod - Tall - 9-1-1: Lone Star Season 2 Episode 6

All Naomi knew was that her sister left her and by no means returned, and Paul did not both. She felt as if her emotions did not matter. It was such a fantastic exploration of the sibling bond, too.

Naomi’s sibling, gender be damned, deserted her. Effectively, it felt that strategy to her. Paul was a younger child too, who was attempting to turn into the individual he needed to be. And he was on the age the place it is pure to take off and begin the subsequent part of your life.

I am sorry I by no means handled you. I used to be only a child myself once I first left residence. I used to be 17, and I barely had the language or the understanding of what I used to be going via not to mention the power to clarify it to a 9 12 months outdated.


I am so glad he and Naomi talked issues via. To punctuate how Naomi felt, she by no means instructed him that she was recognized with MS. Paul did not like feeling out of the loop and excluded from very important info.

It helped Paul higher perceive how harm Naomi was when he left and by no means took the time to clarify issues to her regardless of how shut they have been.

The excellent news in regards to the Stricklands touring round within the RV is they will all the time present up once more. As anticipated, Marjan and Mateo, who’re Paul’s finest associates, received to fulfill the Stricklands. It is too unhealthy they did not get in on a few of that household dinner motion.

The squad as a household vibe on Lone Star is way totally different than 9-1-1, the place everybody interacts extra. It is largely clusters of particular dynamics right here. Paul, Mateo, and Marjan, for instance, are sometimes on an island by themselves. It will’ve been even cuter if Owen, T.Ok, and Judd met the Stricklands too.

Carol: Y’all are too variety for doing this.
Marjan: Do not point out it, Mrs. Strickland. Paul’s household is our household.

The hour did give us an oldie and goodie with the endearing fraternal component between Judd and T.Ok. Judd all the time provides off the Large Bro vibe, so it is attention-grabbing to seek out out that he is the youngest of 4 boys.

Fire Sibs  - 9-1-1: Lone Star Season 2 Episode 6

Is anybody else itching to seek out out all of the issues about Judd? They preserve dropping all of this scrumptious background info on us, and it looks like breadcrumbs main us someplace. I, for one, can’t wait to see what that’s.

Judd is true; sibling relationships are messy and sophisticated, and delivery order does issue into sentiments, and solely folks with siblings perceive.

TK: Dad, I have been on you about this for months. What made you modify your thoughts?
Owen: I’m going to be a father.

As somebody whose youngest brother was born when she was a youngster and who was fairly rattling pissed when she came upon about it, T.Ok.’s utter disbelief over his dad and mom’ being pregnant was relatable. All the pieces Judd mentioned was as humorous because it was trustworthy.

A brand new child introduced up all kinds of emotions. T.Ok. was an solely baby, so he grew up feeling just like the child, however now, he has to share that with somebody new.

Risky Rescue  - 9-1-1: Lone Star Season 2 Episode 6

He additionally needed to wrap his head round the truth that his father was proof against get the surgical procedure completed to take away the final of his most cancers regardless of T.Ok.’s insistence, however out of the blue, for the brand new child, Owen was all-in.

T.Ok. additionally did not get to expertise rising up with each of his dad and mom. It is one thing that contributed to a variety of his points. The brand new child could have this expertise and the kind of consideration and seasoned dad and mom that T.Ok. did not get.

It is pure for some resentment and conflicting emotions to kind. T.Ok. is completely happy for his dad and mom, however he is additionally wrapping his head round his position in issues too.

Fathers, Sons, Brothers - Tall - 9-1-1: Lone Star Season 2 Episode 6

Owen assumed that T.Ok. wasn’t dealing with the information properly and was upset with him, however T.Ok. wanted time to course of greater than the rest.

The 2 of them engaged on that case with the brothers, persevering with the sibling theme, helped them each otherwise.

You are overwhelmed with pleasure, which is nice, and I am simply overwhelmed.


It was one other wild case, they usually’ve been knocking them out of the park this season! The poor boys caught in that minefield.

It was candy that the youngest brother was experiencing unhappiness over his older brother leaving for school. And did any of you Party of Five followers acknowledge the extremely gifted Niko Guardado? The tragically canceled too quickly reboot was a beautiful collection partly due to Guardado’s performances. It was good to see him on this.

Assess  - 9-1-1: Lone Star Season 2 Episode 6

The minefield scenes have been harrowing and irritating. Each time Owen and T.Ok. hopped to a brand new circle, I held my breath. It was already terrifying sufficient when the proprietor exploded right into a mist.

Tommy and Nancy’s quest to discover a new paramedic was a painful reminder of Tim’s loss, and Nancy was a complete temper along with her lack of enthusiasm over the candidates.

You say I am mad since you left, no. I am mad as a result of she did. And she or he by no means mentioned goodbye.

It was good to test again in along with her after 9-1-1 Lone Star Season 2 Episode 2. Understandably, changing Tim was laborious for her since he was her good friend and brother.

The brand new man was too good. His one huge save apart, there was one thing bothersome about him. He wasn’t a superb match in any respect.

Captainess  - 9-1-1: Lone Star Season 2 Episode 6

The 126 is a enjoyable, laidback group of courageous individuals who go to the ends of the earth to avoid wasting different folks. The beginner needed to play it protected. You’ll be able to’t be in that discipline and try this.

However T.Ok. is an ideal match right here. He has the expertise, he is enthusiastic about this portion of the job, and he might use the transfer.

Girls? Girls? You of all folks do not get to play the gender card.


He all the time had a little bit of a hangup about working beneath his father. He has earned every little thing, however it can most likely really feel extra gratifying working below somebody new.

It will not have him questioning his benefit, and it provides him extra independence. His father will not be his crutch, and it is also most likely his approach of constructing area for this new child that is coming and wishes Owen a bit extra.

Breaking in a Newbie  - 9-1-1: Lone Star Season 2 Episode 6

It is a good transfer for T.Ok. And figuring out him, he’ll nonetheless find yourself doing a little bit of each anyway.

We did not get a Carlos sighting throughout this installment, however we did get extra of Grace, and bloody hell. Sierra McClain is such a gem, and it is spectacular how she manages to be such a scene-stealer each installment.

Her name from the conjoined twin was totally wild and riveting without delay. The way in which Grace delivered her “oh,” in response to the caller saying he and his twin have been conjoined was laugh-out-loud humorous.

I’m endlessly in awe of Grace’s ingenuity. Her resourcefulness is unparalleled. The vacuum cleaner suggestion to suction the peanut butter out of the unresponsive twin was one thing that most individuals would not bounce to in such a well timed style.

Hose it Down - Tall - 9-1-1: Lone Star Season 2 Episode 6

Grace is the freaking finest!

And on the infant entrance, it could be hilarious if all that child discuss between Judd and T.Ok., particularly concerning an unplanned being pregnant regardless of contraception precautions, was foreshadowing for a Ryder child.

However for now, the Strands are having a child boy. And I am nonetheless unsure the place this child storyline goes or tips on how to really feel about it.
