The 118 responds to accidents at a bowling alley and a home renovation, as Athena pursues a car thief. Bobby and Michael take Harry camping, and Chimney and Maddie rush into action when their romantic dinner date takes a wild turn.

Airdate: 03/30/2020

I really like Michael and Bobby's friendship. Bobby is so great helping Michael cope - I wonder if Michael realizes when he talks about possibly missing Harry grow up and missing him, that Bobby doesn't get to see either of his children grow up.

Chimney is a good guy. I'm not sure Maddie deserves him.

Are we sure JLH isn't pregnant in real life?

I don't understand the point of taking over a 9-1-1 center. What are they hoping to accomplish?

I thought for sure that when Bobby and Harry got back from picking a place to plant the tree, they would find Michael either unconscious or dead in the tent. 

As for the ending, I knew that we would see the guy who assaulted what's-his-name (sorry, I can't remember) again, but I didn't know when or where.

Leverage did something similar in its episode The Run Down Job. The 911 center was to be taken out so the bad guys could release a bio weapon in the city. Just sayin'!

I thought last week the guy who got beat up on his movie date was a dumbass for not reporting it or ID-ing the two perps. I mean, who gives a care that he got suckered or someone laughs at him. We all knew something worse was going to happen because of his stupidity. 

Some of these accidents are really hard to watch, like the bowling-alley arm. And the nail gun ... for cripes sake, I kept yelling to unhook it or put it down or SOMETHING because I knew one of those two was going to get nailed.

I saw a real x-ray of a guy who shot himself through the head with one of those, and he lived. I wouldn't like to try it myself though.

Where is a rotating restaurant in whatever city they are in. I thought they were in NYC but maybe it's Seattle? Or Vegas? Not that anyone's eating in them now, but next time I'm in one, I'm not sitting by the window.

Totally unrealistic within the restaurant. First off they move so slowly you can't/don't even know you are moving. They portrayed it here like it was akin to a merry-go-round. Most famous one I can recall was atop the World Trade Center in NYC.

I guess lesson learned: next time you get beat up, report it. Because the guy very well may follow you and then hold up your entire call center! 

Small jokes aside, I get that Josh couldn't have predicted that his attacker would do this. But man, when he was saying that he swore that he saw Greg hanging around while he was getting to work, I knew that was foreshadowing to the end of the episode. 

The cases this week were certainly a bit more brutal than usual. That bowling one, in particular, was difficult to watch.

So, Chimney/Maddie finally talk about their feelings. So of course it was also foreshadowing to Maddie using code to get Chimney to realize that something was wrong. Still, I thought Maddie's reasoning for not being able to say I love you makes perfect sense after everything she's gone through. But I also just saw a recent episode of another episode where an abuse victim was explaining why she also couldn't say I love you to her partner.

Michael, Bobby, and Harry go camping. Poor kid had to witness his own father have a bit of a breakdown. It's understandable why Michael's angry right now, but Bobby also had every right to call him out on his behaviour. I still lean toward Michael surviving past this season, and the more they talk about Michael dying, the more I feel like I'm right. I'm glad Michael has finally gotten more airtime, though. He's been underused all series. 

Athena's scene with May, as well as with Hen, were great.

I thought of All Rise.  In all the shows I've seen about domestic violence, I don't ever recall one covering the fraught nature of "I love you" so I found it kind of amusing when both shows aired episodes covering that aspect so close together. 

Obviously, they didn't copy one another but it was still nice to see them go a different route with it on 9-1-1. 

That's some massive coincidence if Josh's date is both a petty thief beating up his dates in public and part of a gang with enough firepower to take over a 9-1-1 call center.

Which is why I assume that Josh's date directly targeted him for something. I dunno, he took his wallet and keys but then left everything. Maybe he needed info from Josh in order to infiltrate the call center. So covering it up with him stealing his stuff and then dumping it down the road was the way to do it.

Damn Chim, been hitting the gym? Looking fiiiiiiine!

Let that be a lesson kids. If your mugged and beaten up, file a police report, or else they might show up at your place of work with a massive ass gun and take everyone hostage! So what is the evil plan here? They cant be robbing the place, is this all a distraction while other people rob someone else? Seems like a big escalation from fraud/park mugging to massive hostage situation of a dispatch station. 

I always love Athena's scenes with Hen, and as sad as a lot of the scenes of Bobby and Michael camping were really sad, I did like them a whole lot, especially Michael telling Bobby that he needs him to be there for Harry growing up, and to keep his memory alive. I was really nervous that he would get seriously hurt or something. I still dont know if Michael will actually die, its kind of hard to tell at this point. I really love the friendship between him and Bobby, its so sweet and well earned. Also interesting how Michael was talking to Bobby about getting to see his kids grow up while Michael couldn't, while Bobby never got to see his kids grow up because they died and Bobby lived.

Of course Chim and Maddie go out for a nice date and find themselves in a medical situation! Its like when a detective goes on vacation, you know its just gonna end up with a murder, and when your a first responded, you just know that your gonna need to save someone from some ridiculous situation. This show seems to exist to make me paranoid about doing random things. Bowling, renovations, dinner, anything could lead to an insane and possibly fatal accident! Glad that Chims brother showed up again, I like him a lot and I like the stuff with him and Chim.

Me neither. There’s no money there.
 

I thought of All Rise too, when Maddie couldn’t say she loved Chim. The character on All Rise voiced the same ideas - she had said it to her abusive ex to placate him and he’d said it to her and followed it with a fist so it lost meaning. I think telling someone that you feel joy when you’re with them is as good as telling someone you love them. I also think showing it is the best of all ways.

Chim needs to be shirtless more. 

I don’t like public proposals either but the girlfriend was right - if you’re with someone for five years and you take her to a fancy restaurant and give her a ring-sized box, she’s going to think it’s a ring.

The Michael-Bobby scenes are so good - I love their blended family. I want Michael to live, dammit!

You can propose anywhere you like. The last person I know who got engaged (last fall) got engaged at the home she shares with her fiancé, the day before they went on a vacation. She came home from work & he had the place decorated nicely. I don’t know anyone personally who has had a public proposal but I know people who know people who have, or who were a part of public proposals. I think they’re more common in the age of social media. I also know people who have gotten engaged outdoors but privately- a quiet corner of a favorite park, for example. I wouldn’t want one because of my personality - public grand gestures aren’t my thing, and I would really hate for someone to post my engagement on Twitter and have people comment on it.

And a big no to wanting my anything filmed by strangers and posted online, or sent to RTM for teevee viewing. I hate all those filmed "surprise" proposals and hate the gender-reveal ones just as much. Everyone is so "It's all about me" these days.

If the bad guys hold 9-1-1 hostage, their partners can rob a bank or a bunch of stores and no cops will come. Everyone will be calling 911 and getting a big nothing.

Yeah I couldn't figure out how that was supposed to work. It looked like the outer ring of the interior was rotating. The only rotating restaurant I've ever been to, the entire room rotated, and it did so VERY slowly. It wasn't just the interior rotating against the exterior (hence, the impossibility of an accident such as this one). It was the entire structure. I don't know if that's a real thing but obviously that would be potentially deadly!

True story: when we were "kids" me and some of my gal pals would play "proposal" at nice restaurants to see if they would comp us the meal. Only one ever did but we got some free desserts elsewhere, LOL.

I ate at Vegas' Stratosphere some years ago, and I remember the outer tables, the ones by the window, rotating, albeit very slowly. I was seated in a booth opposite the window tables and I remember those window-table occupants being different after my meal. According to its website, it rotates a full 360 degrees every 80 minutes. It also says this: "A circular area of the floor next to the windows is all that rotates."

I guess we hand wave the super speed of this show's revolving restaurant, just like we had to hand wave how a fire axe broke those lag bolts with a couple of whacks, freeing up the table so it could be moved.

Thanks @iMonrey for the tip on how to score some free desserts. LOL!

While I was watching this on Hulu I got a number of ads for "9-1-1 : Lone Star" and I realized that I had completely forgotten about that show. I watched the whole thing but it just didn't "take" for me. Meanwhile, I've been so glad to get back to Original Recipe 9-1-1.

But I'll admit that this was a vastly different show in the first season than it turned out to be. I rewatched S1 a few months ago and I barely recognized it compared to now. (Remember when Buck was a sex addict?)

I do not believe that a guy who had just admonished his daughter not to point a nail gun (or any gun) at anything you weren’t aiming at would shoot himself.
Or are these all ripped from the headlines? If so, I still think it would have been that one person gave the safety lecture, but the other refused to take directions from the lecturer.  
I was hoping for Chim’s sake the dad wasn’t HIV- or Hep C- or anything else-positive.

It was more tgan just her body. They seemed to be employing many of the tv tropes to hide a pregnancy. Loose bathrobe, monochrome clothes, holding things in front of her belly.  And then there were a few camera angles where she really does seem to have a baby bump.  No judgement- I'd love to look like her - she just really looks pregnant to me.

My High School senior prom was at a revolving restaurant, appropriately called Changing Scenes.  The whole place revolved,  not just an floor outer ring.  Maybe that was why it was going so fast on the show, that it almost looked like a merry go round, because the mechanism was under that outer part of the floor.  The restaurant I was in went so slowly you couldn't feel it moving at all but periodically you could look out the window and see that the skyline was different.  It was pretty cool.

I do think Athena needs to back off and let Michael deal with his medical crisis.  Not only is he dealing with that, but also with the fact that his children have a stepfather who will replace him when/if he dies.  Yes, I know that he and Michael are "friends" now (although I've always thought that the "one big happy family" thing was too good to be true and happened too soon).  So Michael needs to process stuff right now and Athena should understand that.

Nothing can change the pain of losing a child (I have watched my mother & father grieve the loss of my adult brother and it is . . . brutal unlike anything you can imagine), but there are things that can be a balm on it. I hope helping raise these two kids at least gives Bobby some wonderful, LIVING, ongoing memories of parenting that are not tied up in his children's deaths.

As for proposals, my husband proposed to me while giving a toast and thanks at the reception after the (Catholic -- his family -- yikes) baptism of our daughter. Safe to say I did NOT see that coming! (I was somewhat frazzled, having just come from washing out the diaper-apocalypse from the family's hundred year old french lace christening gown -- in secret so his mother didn't actually murder me on the spot). Nobody expects a proposal to the mother from the father at the baptism, I gotta tell you! Our lovely priest was tickled pink -- he only mentioned once before the baptism "do get around the marriage part sooner rather than later, ok?"

BTW, JLH is just built like that. She is blessed with a very generous bosom, and that already  just makes you look heavier than you are.  Her waist is perfectly trim, but she has had a couple of kids, and I know she has never been a real "tits up!" (Mrs. Maisel) kind of woman. She's usually been dressed pretty modestly when it has been her choice in what to wear. So, being busty and generally preferring to be a bit more covered up (and wearing blazers, etc) she just doesn't look like what we typically see. She's also really tiny, and shortwaisted. If she gained 2 ounces she'd probably have a poochy belly. She has a seriously enviable body, in my opinion.
