9-1-1: Lone Star Boss on Season 3 Finale Twists, Including That Long-Awaited Moment: 'It Felt Like the Right Time'

911 Lone Star Season 3 Finale

Monday’s 9-1-1: Lone Star finale just gave the 126 plenty of reasons to celebrate.

TVLine spoke with executive producer Tim Minear about the episode’s biggest surprises, including how some of them will affect the show’s just-ordered fourth season. But first, a quick recap:

For starters, don’t worry about the building collapse. Everyone you care about survived, though my heart goes out to poor Judd for re-breaking his leg. But the dangerous rescue (coupled with the possible return of his cancer) triggered a vision quest for Owen, who stared down the ghosts of his past and gained a new lease on life. Lastly, faced with his father’s mortality, an emotional T.K. woke Carlos up in the middle of the night to propose… and he said yes!

Grade the finale and season below, then read on for our full interview with Minear. Which part of the #Tarlos proposal was improvised? Which couple was supposed to get together much sooner? And is there still hope for a pair of friendly exes? All those (and more!) questions are answered. As always, be sure to drop a comment with your thoughts.
