Is Peter Krause leaving 9-1-1 following the events of the season 7 finale? This is the question so many had entering the episode, and for good reason. Bobby Nash’s life was put into serious peril, and there was no guarantee he would survive. Given that the character was on life support, things were not looking good.

Also, there is another element of this to take into consideration here, as well: The fact that this is an era where a lot of shows are looking to cut costs! A concern that we had entering the finale was that Bobby needed to be written out on the show — or, that he would at least appear in far fewer episodes. After all, after a situation like this it was hard to imagine a scenario where he would be able to actively go back to work.

Then again, this is television — crazier things have happened. Also, there could be a massive time jump between seasons that helps to make a recovery possible.

Just know this for now: Entering the episode, there was no official word that Krause would be leaving. By virtue of that alone, anything was still possible.

Now, the good news…

Bobby is alive! At around the 40-minute mark in the episode, Athena was called back to the hospital and with that, she got a chance to see her husband again with a smile on his face. He would be hospitalized for a few more days, but all signs were looking positive. He did eventually get released, and was ready to get back to his spot at the 118. This is where another twist entered the picture here: Gerard is taking control of the firehouse now. How long can you keep Bobby out of his rightful place?
