The 118 deals with the citywide blackout thanks to the hacker, while Athena deals with her trauma. Don’t miss 9-1-1 Season 5, Episode 2 live.
The 9-1-1 Season 5 premiere did not disappoint. It brought the perfect mix of personal storylines and major event for the 118 to deal with. It’s all about a hacker who has taken over everything in LA.
It’s all leading to a citywide blackout in 9-1-1 Season 5, Episode 2. This is one of the biggest problems the 118 will need to deal with. In fact, it’s not just going to be the 118. We’ll see the team work with other firefighters to handle the growing situation.
If the blackout wasn’t bad enough, it’s in the middle of a heatwave. That’s going to cause tensions to rise a lot faster than normal, and there’s no sign of it coming to an end.
Athena faces her attacker on 9-1-1 Season 5, Episode 2
At the end of the premiere, Athena thought she’d captured her escaped attacker. However, it turned out his defense attorney was one of the groupies and she killed the detective for him.
Athena is going to find out about the escape. The question is whether she’ll hear about it from the authorities or whether her attacker is going to show up at her door and attack her once more. He knows that she’s the one that can put him away fully, so he needs to deal with her if he wants to be able to remain free.
Another personal storyline is everything that’s going on with Maddie. She’s getting help for her postnatal depression, but it’s not an easy ride. Chimney is starting to struggle, and he’s going to turn to Hen for support. I love that we’ll see this. Yes, Maddie’s depression is normal and she needs help, but Chimney can’t deal with this on his own. There’s nothing for either Maddie or Chimney to be ashamed of, and Hen is the perfect person to turn to for support.
