9-1-1 Season 5 Recap: What Happened in Season 4?
The finale was undoubtedly actioned packed! Fans sighed with relief as Eddie survived the fatal gunshot wound to his chest. He also asked Buck to act as Christopher’s guardian if something happened. Athena finally apprehended the sniper (we were all cheering at this point).
Athena and her husband Bobby have difficulty with their marriage, but they both agree on trying to save it. Maddie has quit her job and finally choosing to deal with her postpartum depression by asking Chimney to help.
Buck and Taylor are officially dating, and Albert is now a firefighter (it’s official!). Meanwhile, Karen and Hen accidentally run into Nia and meet her birth mother.
9-1-1 Season 5 Are There Any Spoilers?
As far as we know, the first three episodes deal with the aftermath of the city blackout, and the 118 have their hands complete. TV Line revealed a picture of a pack of escaped animals running down Hollywood Boulevard during the said blackout speaks volumes about the situation.
The showrunner, Tim Minear, stated that while dealing with her postpartum depression, Maddie will create a significant complication this season. He further explained that Maddie’s situation is not what he wants to brush aside or overlook, his exact words being not wanting to give it a ‘short shrift’. Also, we hope to see more of Chimney’s brother Albert who survived a deadly car crash and now serves as a firefighter.
