‘9-1-1: Lone Star’ Celebrates Owen’s Heroism With Tense Photo

by Suzanne Halliburton

The 9-1-1: Lone Star social media team is dropping all sorts of clips to hype the season three premiere.

Like, do you remember that time a father-son team tip-toed through a minefield? The 9-1-1: Lone Star social media team tweeted “throwback to when Cap went through a homemade minefield to save two brothers. No big deal. #justtexasthings”

That’s Rob Lowe as Captain Owen Stand, the leader of Austin station 126. He’s keeping low as he maneuvered through the field. Never mind that the owner of said minefield already blew up into red little bits. Fans of the show also quickly reminded the 9-1-1: Lone Star Twitter account that Cap’s son, TK, also played a vital role in the episode that ran Feb. 22.

One fan wrote: “not you forgetting about the one who actually did all the saving in that scene.” The fan obviously loved TK (Ronen Rubinstein), since a montage of TK photos accompanied the tweet. Another wrote: “wasn’t that mostly tk with owen helping him bestie.”

Here’s the official plot summary from Fox for the episode called Everyone and Their Brother:

“Owen and T.K. risk their lives to save two brothers trapped in a homemade minefield. Meanwhile, Grace receives an emergency call from a conjoined twin whose brother is dying, Tommy interviews new candidates to fill the team’s open EMT position, and Paul’s mother and estranged sister pay him an unexpected visit.”

The 9-1-1: Lone Star account will soon have more current clips to post. That’s because Fox finally set a season three premiere date. The first episode is set for Jan. 3. And it’ll be a chilly doozy of mass rescue.

The premiere is recreating a wild Texas ice storm that blasted the state in February. In a preview clip posted earlier this month, “Cold As Ice” is playing as fans see Rob Lowe. Then there’s TK, one of the paramedics. TK is trying to rescue someone who had fallen through the ice on a lake.

9-1-1: Lone Star is filmed in Los Angeles, but it’s supposed to be in the middle of Austin, Tx. Coincidentally, a historic winter storm walloped Austin while 9-1-1: Lone Star was hitting its second season stride. In fact, as 9-1-1: Lone Star fans watched Everyone and Their Brother, Austin was starting to thaw. So go ahead and use #JustTexasThings for that, too. The storm left huge chunks of the state with no electricity and water.

Before 9-1-1: Lone Star even premiered in 2020, Lowe was talking up the new show to Entertainment Weekly.

“I love action; I love a good procedural,” Lowe said. “But that kind of special sauce they throw on it makes it not only really interesting to watch but really, really interesting as an actor.”

In this case, minefields and freezes qualify as the special sauce. Enjoy.
