This episode of 9-1-1 was full of exciting events, from Buck’s terrible first date with Tommy to his honest confessions to Maddie and Eddie. Buck’s journey of self-discovery was the main focus of the show.

Tom and Buck’s First Date

Buck and Tommy’s first date was highly anticipated, but unfortunately, it didn’t go as planned. Buck looked worried, so Tommy tried to calm him down by telling him that people who work in their field are accepting. Things changed, though, when Eddie and Marisol showed up at the same place out of the blue.

Buck tried to impress Eddie by lying about his plans with Tommy because he felt under a lot of pressure. Because of this, there was an awkward moment, and Tommy finally chose to end the night by himself. Tommy showed his caring side by not blaming Buck for the bad date, even though it was awkward. He told Buck that he didn’t want to put any pressure on him and then walked away. Buck was disappointed but eager to find out more about how he felt.

Buck Comes Out to Maddie

After his failed date with Tommy goes badly, Buck goes to his sister Maddie for help. But it’s hard for him to find the right words to describe what happened. Maddie starts to make wild guesses, like whether Buck is dating a married woman or a famous person, because she feels like something is seriously wrong.

Buck finally gets up the nerve to tell everyone that he went on a date with a guy. Maddie is surprised at first, but she quickly changes her mind and starts to back them. She tells Buck that she doesn’t think he’s lying and tells him to take his time finding out how he feels. Buck feels better and more accepted when Maddie accepts and understands him.  Their talk was refreshingly honest, and it showed how close they are as siblings.

Eddie and Buck talks

In this episode, Eddie and Buck’s talk was a turning point in their relationship. Eddie finally gets Buck to talk about how he feels about Tommy and how he realized he was gay.

Eddie ends the talk by giving Buck a supportive hug. This solidifies their friendship and opens the door for a new period.

Eddie’s Relationship Struggles

Bobby, who is a faithful Catholic, tells Eddie that he is hesitant because he is afraid of making a commitment, not because of Marisol’s past. This talk with Marisol helps Eddie understand that he needs to take things slowly and not rush into a deeper engagement with her. Eddie and Marisol finally decide not to move in together. Instead, they choose to focus on building their relationship at a pace that works for both of them.

Hen and Karen’s Fostering Journey

She stands over Hen and Karen while they sleep.

The episode goes on to show that Mara’s behavior is caused by a stressful event: she called 911 after finding her parents dead from an opioid overdose.
