Following the most-recent episode of 9-1-1 season 3, we’ll be the first to say that we had some serious concerns for Hen. We just weren’t sure whether or not she was going to be okay after the ambulance accident. It’s not because there was any significant physical pain that she was dealing with; instead, it was more due to some of the mental anguish that she suffered.
As you saw in tonight’s episode, having an accident in an ambulance can really mess with your mind. You get into an ambulance thinking that it’s going to be an opportunity to save a life, and when something happens that hurts you, it’s a lot that you have to digest. It makes you wonder whether or not you’re going to be able to do the same job again.
Luckily, this episode was in part around Hen finding a way to get back up on that metaphorical horse again — it was about understand the difficulties in this job and also relying on your friends and loved ones for support. We know that the dynamics of this job make it sometimes difficult to rely on others, but you’re a family.
After everything that we saw Hen go through within this episode, there was just something so delightful about what we say in the closing minutes. It was, basically, an opportunity in order to see Hen recognize that it’s okay now to get back out there. With Chimney’s help, she decided to drive the ambulance at the end of the episode.
Does this mean that she is over fully everything that transpired throughout this week? We’re not sure that we would go that far in the slightest. Yet, we do think that this episode tonight was a chance for growth and an opportunity for her to figure out how to get back out there and also be prepared for the future … no matter what that future may be. There are going to be more issues she encounters, after all. That’s inevitable for a series that is ALL about danger.
