So I guess I'm in the minority. I didn't really like this episode. I guess I don't care that much about Buck and his love life and the whole episode was about Buck realizing he's not Buck 1.0 anymore but Buck 2.0. And really who refers to themselves as 1.0 and 2.0.
I also thought it was really odd that nobody was annoyed that Buck was hooking up with the reporter that didn't care about the ramifications of airing the firefighters being high as a kit as long as she didn't have to go back to being a traffic reporter. I mean the firefighters could have lost their jobs. I really thought it was strange Bobby was OK with Buck potentially dating the reporter. I mean she was going to air his deepest secrets.
I do agree that the earthquake girl is better then the reporter, but I kept wondering how did earthquake girl get Buck's phone number? Did Buck give it to her the day of the earthquake? If he did, that is so inappropriate and hello there's a earthquake going on not the time or place to give some girl your phone number. Also I can't help but wonder why she contacted Buck. I know Buck questioned her about it "did you only call me because I saved you?" However, you'd have to think that played a big part in her calling Buck. I know I know the show showed us them talking forever and that they had a real connection, but I kept thinking what happened during the earthquake that made the girl go oh I need to call that guy Buck! I get that kind of situation makes someone reevaluate their life, but I was thinking really almost dying made you want to call Buck? ooookkkaaaayyy
I don't dislike Buck; I just don't really care about his love life.
