An terrible lot was happening throughout that hour, but it in some way glided by in a blur.
There weren’t a number of emergencies; as an alternative, one main disaster and case being labored by the cops on9-1-1 Season 4 Episode 11, as Sue bought hit by a automobile after she tried to step in and cease a criminal offense in progress.
That single occasion set off a collection of actions that finally led to the seize of a serial kidnapper.
911 at all times does the a number of instances of the week properly. But there’s one thing in regards to the extra finely tuned episodes centered round one or two tales that stand out extra in the long term.
It wasn’t clear at first that Sue’s tried homicide and the lacking case Athena was engaged on would intersect, nevertheless it was an thrilling reveal in the long run.
Sue has been a background participant for some time now. Someone we see and listen to from typically, however not essentially somebody we all know that properly. She’s well-respected by Maddie and Josh, who look to her as a motherly determine at work, however we have not gotten to know her a lot past that.
And it isn’t like we stroll away from this installment studying much more, however we do know that whether or not she’s on the clock or off, she is going to assist somebody in want. No matter the consequence.
We bought a mini Josh Begins, as we flashbacked to a time when Justin Timberlake was nonetheless making music, and Josh was freelancing as a stenographer (which is an actual factor, guys!) Sue helped save his life, and it is loopy to assume that was the occasion that introduced Josh to the decision heart.
To us, he is at all times been Maddie’s mentor/buddy. A buddy and confidant to her, and somebody who’s extremely expert at his job. Now we all know that if it weren’t for Sue, he would possibly by no means have even gotten into that occupation within the first place.
While Sue was preventing for her life, Athena handled a lacking particular person’s case that was on no person’s radar.
The dialog between Athena and Hen in regards to the actuality of lacking particular person instances involving black individuals, ladies imparticular, being swept underneath the rug was about as actual as this show will get. It’s only a proven fact that these instances don’t garner the identical media consideration.
It’s a tragic actuality that not solely does legislation enforcement fall quick right here, however the media as properly.
But fortunately, Athena bought the decision that set her on a path to discovering Tracie.
Buck unknowingly helped in his personal means by taking Sue’s hit and run to Taylor, who bought it the media protection it wanted. Without that protection, it could in all probability take Athena rather a lot longer to put the car from Tracie’s kidnapping to the hit and run.
And in that state of affairs, Tracie in all probability would not make it.
The entire rescue scene was intense, and it was type of scary for a bit, realizing the kidnapper was waltzing round with a gun, the police had been having supreme difficulties discovering him, and the 118 had been utterly unprotected.
It took Josh having his Matrix second and seeing the whole lot a bit slowed down and in sequence for him to determine the appropriate plan of action. He needed to be the eyes of the police, and he did so bravely and flawlessly.
Sue has taught him properly through the years, and contemplating how his religion was shaken all through the hour, it was good to see the whole lot click on for him. He let his coaching kick in, and he helped maintain lots of people protected.
In the tip, it took everybody from Josh to Athena, Buck, the 118, and even Taylor to assist save Tracie and produce the kidnapper and tried assassin to justice.
With a lot happening, there wasn’t a lot room for added storylines—particularly these of the private selection. But there was the sub-plot of May wanting to maneuver out, which continued the season-long dive into the Athena and May dynamic.
Mother and daughter have had many ups and downs, and as of late, it is appeared a bit extra down than up, however they’re attending to a a lot better place. And they’re each attempting, which is so, so essential.
Athena has at all times wished to guard May as a result of that is her job as a mom. You love your children, help your children, and do the whole lot inside your energy to maintain them protected. That’s the secret.
And seeing what Athena sees day by day has made her a troublesome mother, and whereas there’s nothing improper with that, it is essential to do not forget that in some unspecified time in the future, your children aren’t children anymore. Your first intuition will at all times be to protect them from ache, however you additionally need to allow them to make their very own selections and make their very own errors.
May has proven numerous development all through the collection, and she or he’s in a spot proper now the place she’s able to take this step for herself. And whereas everybody might have been stunned that Athena did not instantly shut down May’s choice, it reveals how a lot Athena has been listening to her daughter that she has the exact opposite response.
It’s good to see their relationship evolving and turning into greater than them arguing over May’s life. They’ve each determined to know one another extra, and it will get them to a spot the place they’ll sit down civilly and work collectively on discovering May a spot to reside versus butting heads.
And it would not be Athena if she did not have a printed-out checklist of circumstances for May to observe. She’s listening, however she’s not loopy! She’s not going to let May transfer simply wherever. Not on this loopy world we reside in.
