“9-1-1” will go on a months-long hiatus after Monday’s fall finale episode, which takes place on Christmas Eve. But before the 118 says goodbye to viewers for now, they’re going out with a holiday bang of over-the-top emergencies. And TheWrap has an exclusive sneak peek at one of the wildest that you’ll see during tonight’s hour.
In the preview from Monday’s “9-1-1,” titled “Wrapped in Red,” Buck (Oliver Stark) goes rappelling down an open elevator shaft to help a woman who has fallen down it accidentally.
How did this happen? Well, that’s something Captain Bobby (Peter Krause) would really like to know while Buck and Hen (Aisha Hinds) tend to the injured woman.
“Do you mind explaining how that happened?” Bobby asks a man on the scene.
“We were talking and she got upset and tried to run and then–,” the man says, before Bobby turns to a handy-man type and says, “Which brings us back to what the hell were you doing with this elevator?”
“Fixing it?” the maintenance worker says.
Oh, that doesn’t go over well with the chief.
“No safety cones, no caution tape, no signage,” Bobby lectures. “OK, why don’t you and I find a place where we can have a conversation about proper elevator maintenance and safety protocols. Let’s go!”
