what i can’t get over is how easily the writers could have made eddie’s panic attacks about how he was literally shot in broad daylight, and yet they made it about eddie being tied to ana in a permanent, romantic way. WHY?
9-1-1 season 5. Eddie's sisters find out about Buck getting Christopher in the will and they storm up to Los Angeles wholesale because GODDAMNIT THEY'RE TIRED OF HEARING ABOUT THIS BUCK GUY FROM THIRD PARTIES AND THEY NEED TO MEET HIM IN PERSON AND SEE FOR THEMSELVES IF HE'S WORTHY OF CHRISTOPHER (AND EDDIE, BECAUSE IF THAT MAN ISN'T IN LOVE THEY WILL EAT THEIR OWN TEN GALLON HATS)
Still freaking out about Bobby’s voice over “You’re gonna lose people”, but I think I figured out what it means.
5x01 starts with a funeral. Ana died. She plugged in the fancy coffee maker Eddie never uses and got electrocuted. As the coffin disappears underneath the earth being shovelled onto it, Eddie turns to his friends who are all there to support him.
"Anyone wanna grab lunch? I'm starving."
In the background, Hildy cackles maniacally
Okay y’all I know we’re excited about the new stuff coming out, but can everyone please tag the filming stuff as spoilers? I’m sure I’m not the only one who doesn’t want to know everything going into the first ep. So kindly tag so I can blacklist, please 🥰
me: i think it’s important that maddie’s having a postpartum depression arc because i think it’s important for people to see that this is a real mental illness that affects a lot of people and i hope it makes it easier for those with ppd to reach out to get help
the fact that eddie was completely fine while in a helicopter that was two seconds from crashing to the ground but then started getting shaky when ravi assumed ana was his wife…..i mean idk. it’s just interesting, is all. veeeery interesting.
What I’m gonna say at the end will probably bring a lot of hate, but let me explain my point based on my own life. Coming from an older sister with a little brother and also a person who suffered from depression. Eddie and Buck’s conversation, and Eddie’s words, in particular, hit me the way they shouldn’t have. A perfect description of the difference in the relationship between lovers/partners (Chimney and Maddie), and siblings (Buck and Maddie).
When you think of your sister, you see this person you’ve looked up to. The woman who’s taken care of you.
My brother knows I suffered from depression. He knows I have been in therapy and seen a psychologist. Does he know the extent of it? No. It is something as an older sister I kept to myself. To protect him, not to make him worry about me. I raised him. I am his rock even when my own life is crumbling apart; I always wanna be protecting him from things our own parents can’t, and no matter what, he’ll always be my baby. Will I ever tell him how bad my mental had gotten? Maybe, but not everything. There are things that you just can’t share. Not with him.
But maybe that’s not who she is right now. This time maybe she’s the one who needs taking care of.
But during my depression… Two weeks in a dark room, barely eaten any food and been sleeping no matter was it the day or the night. I wasn’t the person my brother knew. I, personally, didn't even recognise myself. But my partner… He was the one who saw me through this. He’s the one who was with me after every therapy session. Not my parents and definitely not my brother (he was too young), but my partner was the one who was with me after my suicide attempt at 16. He held me after every mental breakdown, who was patching up my scars and stopped me from hanging(you know...). He fed me when even thought about food made me hate myself. He was the one who made me get up and leave the house without caring that I cried and directed my anger at him.
Was Chimney wrong by hitting Buck? Definitely.
Could have Buck handled Maddie’s wish to keep what he knew to himself differently? 100%
Are they both right though? Yes. In their own way.
Chimney is right because he’s seen the darkest sides of Maddie’s PPD, and he knows how bad her mental health can get. He was with her through the nightmares, all the therapy sessions, her doubts of being a bad sister and mother because of their parents. Especially after her parents visited during her pregnancy and the secret about Daniel got revealed.
Buck: he’s coming from a point of a person who knows his sister as this strong person, a fighter. He saw the sister even though she was going through her own grief after Daniel still had a strength to love him, to take care of him. He was the one who found her in the forest after Doug, and the first thing she told him was I didn’t give up.
Comparing these two story lines only from one perspective is wrong in every way. Both Buck and Chimney come from different places:
He just doesn’t know her the way I do.
Or you don’t her the way he does.
Both of them know different sides of this one person, of Maddie.
i get chimney was angry at buck for not telling him about maddie but here me out
when buck found out chim knew about daniel and didnt tell him, did buck punch him? no....he just left and silently raged at him, he did not lay hands but chimney hit him for not telling him and i get it hes angry but thats no excuse...
