Things 911 writers took straight (nothing is straight about this) out of fanfics. Season 5 Edition.
▪️Buck and Eddie being all weird and uncomfortable after getting separated.
▫️Yet they still manage to understand and work with each other without any words needed (chainsaw scene, the guy who tried to get fit too fast).
▪️Eddie being a bad driver and a good dancer. Read quite a few of those. But it’s officially a canon now.
▫️Eddie getting trapped in a fire with Bobby. More to the list of their bad luck when Buck and Eddie get separated.
▪️The whole table conversation. Eddie can get emotional and we’ve seen him angry, and angry at Buck. During the scene though - calm, sarcastic with his Btch please attitude.
▫️You’re stuck with Us = Have you stopped for a minute and thought what that can do to Us? = It won’t happen to Us. He wasn’t talking only about 118 and fire fam. Nope, him and Chris too.
▪️Who replaces me? okay, I read this one a while ago. But the idea overall is I will go whenever you go. You’re not leaving without me. You’ll always be a part of our family.
▪️Not to shame Taylor. Just read a hella lot of these. But really awkward BuckTaylor scenes, and Taylor not getting what kind of person Buck is and understanding how to act around him.
5x04 list can be found here.

The 505 opening shots of LA before we enter Buck’s loft are stuck in my head. They mean something but I don’t know what exactly.
What stands out to me is that the streets are empty! There’s no life and that feels weird. So my sense is that the empty streets mirror Buck’s emotional/relationship state. Maddie and Chim are nowhere to be found at this point for Buck, and things are unfamiliar for him at work too. He feels isolated because he thinks everyone is mad at him. Classic Buck.
Taylor is in Buck’s loft and she’s doing her version of being supportive and attentive while Buck copes with the absence and/or “weird”ness of his loved ones. But she really only feels like a (weak) coping mechanism, a stop-gap maneuver until the people he actually loves come back to and/or reconnect with him.
This is what I’m thinking but I’m not sure. All I know is the desolate streets of typically-bustling-LA freaked me out and I needed a theory to comfort me lol.

They're not building to buddie happening. Buddie is not happening. Buddie is a crack ship. The creators have repeatedly said nothing about buddie is intended to be romantic. And you wanting Buck to toss aside his canon female love interest for a man when it's never even been confirmed he's interested in men, wanting Taylor to essentially be a placeholder and there solely to emotionally support Buck until he doesn't want her anymore, is misogynist. Get some therapy.
I specifically said I don't want Buck to toss aside Taylor, but I think your comprehension skills are just bad, huh, Nonnie?
In my other post [here], I said I don't want the writers to forget Taylor once her "purpose" is completed. Purpose with quotation marks Nonnie, which I think you missed just as much as you've missed the obvious build-up of Buddie, which is (hoo-boy I can't believe I have to say this) not a crack ship! Buddie is a real, deliberate ship, fighting the queerbait-industry that Hollywood has become in general, and if you can't see that that's on you. Don't believe Buddie is actually going to be real still? Don't believe that the creators/actors are okay with Buddie? Then check these out:
Oliver Stark telling off a person for saying homophobic shit.
Meta by the amazing @matan4il who keeps on giving incredible metas to this fandom: Buck and Eddie's Dating Parallels (and many, many more but you know what Nonnie? I think I've given you enough reading material as it is).
Eddie Diaz' very real Queer Awakening (and Buck's future Awakening/Might already be aware) by @yramesoruniverse
By @kitkatpancakestack: Eddie's Storyline | Buck's Storyline | The Buckley-Diaz Relationship told only in quotes said by Buck and Eddie and Chris signifying the importance of each other in their lives | Buck and Eddie are TOTALLY not meant to be lovers no what do you mean (they totally are tho)
If you don't want to have them become canon, maybe check your homophobia, Karen. Maybe even go to therapy, take your own advice.
As for Taylor being there to "only" emotionally support Buck. Nope, that's not it, Nonnie. Buck has his FireFam + Maddie to emotionally support him. I don't think he needs Taylor for that. His relationship with Taylor isn't even based on needs; it's based on wants. Buck wants someone to come home to, and that for now, is Taylor. Taylor wants Buck, as simple as that, (also because her most shown traits are her being an absent girlfriend and being more into her career, I don't really know much about her wants) and she has him. But is this love? Is this being in love? Nope. Not at all. This is a journey for both of them, and I can only hope that their destination is to being a better version of themselves.
Remember Abby, Nonnie? From S1? Would you say that whole arc was biased against Buck, given that Abby "used" Buck to reach her emotional epiphany? Because she left him, didn't she? She left him to find herself, and so what would you say happened here, Nonnie? Was Buck a placeholder here?
Similarly, let's see another S1 arc: Athena and Michael. Michael also "used" Athena according to you, didn't he? Used Athena as a placeholder? But what is it he really did? He came out as his true self. He finally felt ready to admit it to his family, to his closed ones, that he is something other than what he previously thought he was. That he made others think of him as. We don't know when he admitted it to himself, but we do know that Athena took some time to really digest that—that her husband of over 20 years is gay. And that's valid as fuck. She can take all the time to take that in, because she was in love with someone for two decades and she still didn't have all the pieces of him. But now? Fast forward five years later? Athena and Michael are good friends. They're family still.
What I'm getting at is this, Nonnie: Taylor is not a placeholder. Taylor is not a goddamn prop. I don't want her to be one, not like Ana Flores clearly was (and haven't you asked yourself Nonnie, why that break-up happened? Eddie figuring himself out is why). Taylor is there in Buck's life and it literally has nothing to do with her when Buck figures out he loves Eddie. Buck likes Taylor, they're together, maybe he even loves her, but maybe, just maybe, it's the kind of love that makes them good friends and not lovers. Like Athena and Michael.
This show is literally about finding who you are, and moving on in life. Buck and Eddie not yet knowing they like men (or are in love with each other) is just another journey waiting to happen, Nonnie, and I feel sorry for you because you can't see that Eddie has already started on his.
