The second episode of 9-1-1 that premiered last week was titled “Alone Together” and we are back with yet another recap. So let’s delve in. The episode begins with a sequence of Athena, while she was on light-duty. She has returned to work after an incident in the field, so she is easing her way back into her work. However it all changes when she gets to know about the broken dam, and it created issues the entire day. She was sent to the field to clear the neighborhoods that were at risk of getting affected and that was the time when she met Sylvia. She lived in a house that lied in the pathway of a mudslide. She was asked to leave her home but it was nearly impossible for her to do it voluntarily. Sylvia suffered from a mental condition that made her fearful of going out and the way the current pandemic has made up the situation, it all makes sense. Sylvia was afraid and Athena tried to talk to her but she wasn’t really ready to leave her house. She tried her best to convince Sylvia but she refused.
Eventually, while they were still talking, a mudslide occurred. While the two women were in the house, it got swept and fell over the hill. They somehow managed to survive, but still needed help from somehow who could rescue them. But if they had to survive, they had to be their own and each other’s help as Athena’s radio wasn’t working and the nearby cell tower was taken out. The 118 teams had come down during the mudslide, where several homes got swept away. There, Chimney and Buck found a baby monitor. The second monitor is somehow still with the baby and the two could hear him cry. They knew that the baby was nearby and they tried to pick it up on their respective radios. Athena got back to her radio and filed a dispatch on their condition. Both of them were fine and just needed to be rescued. They tried climbing up but the house was unstable and pushed them back downwards.
Chimney on the other hand traveled down the chimney of the house, they suspected the baby was in. He traveled down and found the baby and a woman who he thought was his mother. But in reality, she wasn’t his mother but a kidnapper who has kidnapped him and several other pregnant women. The women were all locked inside the rooms, and the baby’s mother was in there too. The crew arrived in order to put an end to the illegal adoption where a woman named Carol tricked pregnant women into meeting her, kidnapped her, and then forced them to give up their babies so she could late sell them. Chimney soon finds that one of the abandoned women in the house is pregnant and is going through labor. He had to deliver the baby down there. He was talking to the woman while she was giving birth and it made him realize how silly it was of him to distance himself from Maddie. Chimney realizes his idea of staying away from Maddie in order to protect her was complete bullshit and he needs to be there for her.
We're bringing you tons of action this Monday! 🙌🚒
