9-1-1 Finale First Look: Brooke Shields Helps Athena Through Her Trauma — Plus, Meet Abby's New [Spoiler]

911 Finale Brooke Shields

Connie Britton isn’t the only big name crashing (sorry, too soon?) Monday’s 9-1-1‘s season finale (Fox, 8/7c).

Golden Globe nominee Brooke Shields will also guest-star in the final hour of Season 3, TVLine has learned exclusively. Her character, Dr. Kara Sanford, is a victims advocate who works with Athena in the aftermath of her near-fatal encounter with the serial rapist. Shields is no stranger to the Ryan Murphy-verse, having previously appeared on Scream Queens and Nip/Tuck.

We’ve also learned that Rumer Willis, whom we previously reported would appear sometime this season, will finally show up in Monday’s finale as one of the passengers aboard that ill-fated train from Phoenix.

And here’s a mystery that shouldn’t be too difficult for observant fans to solve: ScrubsTravis Schuldt will also play a train passenger… with ties to Abby. (While you mull that one over, here’s another fun fact to enjoy: Schuldt is married to Natalie Zea, who recurred as Rob Lowe’s love interest in the first season of 9-1-1: Lone Star.)

While the train wreck remains the finale’s central crisis, Fox’s promo for the episode also hints at a dramatic development for Michael (here’s hoping for good news!), as well as some sort of surprise for Chimney and Maddie. Click here watch it.
