‘9-1-1’ Season 7 Episode 1 Recap: A Stormy Start

The first episode of the season starts with a rough cruise ship adventure for Athena (Angela Bassett) and Bobby (Peter Krause), but it also expertly sets the stage for a season full of heart-stopping escapes and interesting character arcs.

Athena is on her long-awaited honeymoon with Bobby when the show starts. She feels like something is wrong with the other people on the cruise ship. Bobby doesn’t believe her and thinks it’s a plan to avoid spending time alone with her.

Back at Station 118, Chimney (Kenneth Choi), struggles with doubts about his marriage. Eddie (Ryan Guzman), on the other hand, has to deal with his son Christopher’s (Gavin McHugh) changing feelings about the relationship.

‘9-1-1’ Season 7 Episode 1 Recap

Their busy jobs made it hard for Athena, a police officer, and Bobby, a firefighter, to find time for a holiday. Still, Bobby’s drive got them to set sail in the end. Even though Athena was still scared from a movie she saw as a child about a cruise ship sinking, she agreed to go because she wanted to make Bobby’s trip special.

A National Guard plane crashed into a house on land at the same time, locking Abe and Edna in the wreckage of their marriage. Abe, who was stuck in his chair, couldn’t wait to get away from his wife. Edna, who was upset that he lived, was glad that his favorite chair had been destroyed in the crash.

When it was found that the plane still had a missile connected, things got worse. The firemen were in a tough spot because the pilot was knocked out and they didn’t know which wire to cut. But Chimney’s quick thought saved the day and helped them get Abe to safety.

As things got worse, Chimney understood how important it was to keep relationships fresh. That’s why he surprised Maddie with a romantic dinner at home. Chimney thought that going on dates was important to keep their relationship from getting stagnant, even though he was engaged to a daughter.

Athena and Bobby were seated next to Lola and Norman Peterson on the trip. They were a unique couple with a story to tell. Lola once flashed a sign to get people’s attention. She went to jail and did time, but when she got out, Norman was there to greet her. The Petersons were full of life, while Athena was worried about her bond with Bobby.

When Athena became sure that Norman had killed Lola, her fears grew even stronger. She thought something was wrong, but it turned out that Lola had been taken away. When the thieves took over the boat armed and dangerous, things got worse.

Eddie had a sad realization when he got back to land about how his son Christopher felt abandoned after his mother left and then died. Eddie’s choice to read a letter from Christopher’s late mother, Shannon, was a moving moment that made people cry.

In a surprising turn of events, the show’s author, Minear, said that what began as a funny story about Buck and Eddie turned into a deeper look at Christopher’s feelings of loss and being left behind. The show was even more emotional because Devin Kelley, who played Shannon, was brought back.

People had their eyes fixed to their screens at the end of the show, eager to see what would happen in the rest of the season. 9-1-1 keeps people interested with its mix of exciting escapes and touching moments, and the next season looks like it will be one to remember.
