‘9-1-1’ Fans Can’t Get Over One Recent Moment

by Joe Rutland

Outsiders, it looks like a particular moment in the FOX first-responder drama 9-1-1 is really getting attention from the show’s fans.

Let’s take a look at what is going on here. We’ll get an assist from Looper, too.

Firefighters do sometimes have time to chill out before going on another call. In an episode this season called Defend in Place, Buck Buckley, played by Oliver Stark, chats it up with Eddie Diaz, played by Ryan Guzman, and Hen Wilson, played by Aisha Hinds.

As they are talking, Eddie says, “My abuela would eat this up. She loves a good telenovela.”

‘9-1-1’ Chit-Chat Leads Buck, Eddie to Start Friendly Banter Between Them

“Oh, ’cause you don’t?” Buck fires back. “Come on, I know you watch them with Christopher (referring to Eddie’s young son).”

This leads to Eddie saying that this is “how (the two of them) practice (their) Spanish.” Buck’s retort? “Uh-huh.”

It was this banter on 9-1-1 that got fans in a frenzy on Twitter.

What were they saying? Let’s take a look, Outsiders. So @buckleyofthe118 says, “This scene was free serotonin,” Then @EDDIEBEGlNS agrees, saying in a tweet, “The teasing is such old married couple behavior.” 

“THE WAY THEY KNOW EACH OTHER TO THIS LEVEL,” cried @FanGirl2000 in a quote retweet. “Buck watching telenovelas with Eddie and Christopher is not a want, but a need,” said @kingssmythe. “It’s me, I’m the abuela eating this up,” said @tropicbreezus, who probably is speaking for many Buck and Eddie fans across the globe.

Check back on Monday, Dec. 5, at 8 p.m. Eastern, 7 p.m. Central, for the next 9-1-1 episode.

Guzman Takes Stock on Troubles His Character Has Had As A Father

Watching Guzman as Eddie on 9-1-1 can be tricky sometimes because the actor is so in touch with his character’s father issues.

They revolve around being the best dad possible for Eddie’s son, Christopher.

The actor talks about this in an interview with The Wrap.

“He had to deal with issues between him and his wife and understand that his mother and father think that they know best for his son,” Guzman said. “And through that the only thing that he had to rely on was Christopher.”

Diaz was in a relationship with a woman who also was Christopher’s teacher. He got anxious about their future and, well, it ended.

Guzman says that Eddie has had to find his own way with his son.

It goes “from being disconnected in the beginning while holding him and trying to figure out what he actually needs,” the 9-1-1 actor said. “To later on having a conversation with him on the porch and really just shedding true light on how he feels about his son.”
