Listen, it’s a day we don’t ever wish to think about getting right here on 9-1-1, however sadly, Bobby Nash (Peter Krause, above, second from the left) can’t be captain of the 118 eternally. (But we will fortunately think about that sooner or later, when he and his spouse, Sergeant Athena Grant, performed by Angela Bassett, ultimately go away behind firefighting and police work, they’ll resolve crimes collectively in some capability.) The excellent news is that we will simply see any of the members of the 118 getting into the function, however, as we await information of Season 7 on ABC (after the transfer from Fox), who ought to?
Chimney (Kenneth Choi) was the primary to function interim captain, again in Season 2 when Bobby was suspended, and whereas he did say “by no means once more” when the opposite man took break day for what would’ve been his and Athena’s honeymoon final 12 months, that’s not true. After spending time on the academy (per Bobby’s orders) close to the tip of Season 6, he now looks like a greater chief and is able to see what his subsequent steps are. So if the possibility to be interim captain got here up, no, he wouldn’t say “by no means once more” this time.
“I personally assume he could be an amazing captain. His downside has all the time been that he has lots of self-doubt,” Choi advised TV Insider after “Performance Anxiety,” which addressed his buddy Kevin’s loss of life and got here after Chimney started engaged on his relationship together with his father. “I feel these two large puzzle items being found, he can now transfer ahead. So so far as being interim captain, I feel that he’d settle for the problem extra willingly, completely.”
When Bobby was planning that point off for his trip, Buck (Oliver Stark) was offended that he wasn’t his decide — and the opposite man advised him he nonetheless had work to do on himself. By the tip of Season 6, Buck was in a significantly better place, and we noticed him take management through the finale emergency (because the least-injured member of the 118). After that, he’s “completely” as near being able to be captain as he’s ever been, Stark told us.
“Obviously, he thought he was already at that time firstly of the season and was shortly advised that he was not and he needed to exit and reside some extra life. I feel we’ve seen him try this this season, and he actually stepped up when he wanted to on this finale,” he defined. “I feel he’s on the cusp of being able to assume that sort of function. Obviously, Bobby could be very a lot alive and kicking and never going anyplace anytime quickly. But if the place ever arose in every other capability, I feel Buck is proving that he’s a keen and prepared candidate.”
That being stated, Stark added, “I don’t assume Buck is in a rush. He’s nonetheless initially of his profession and there are very sturdy arguments that there are a lot of different individuals on the 118 that may be forward of Buck in that queue. But I do assume he has the charisma and the power to, in some unspecified time in the future, step into that function if it ever got here his means.”
It was Hen (Aisha Hinds) Bobby picked to fill in whereas he was out, however she did so whereas additionally balancing med college. Since then, she’s realized the 118 is the place she belongs. And whilst she was unfold too skinny, she confirmed that she’s an amazing captain. She was even interim captain through the finale emergency with a head damage she didn’t get checked out till the 118 lastly made its approach to the hospital.
As for Eddie (Ryan Guzman), as he stated within the Season 6 premiere when Bobby’s trip got here up, “I’d wish to stress him into not asking me.” But that would simply change sooner or later.
And then there’s all the time the chance that somebody new may very well be introduced in when the day comes for a brand new (everlasting) captain on the 118.
But what do you assume? Vote within the ballot beneath.
