9-1-1: Lone Star Couple on the Tragedy and Triumph of the #TarlosWedding, Including What Viewers Didn't See

911 Lone Star Recap Season 4 Finale Tarlos Wedding

Best finale ever? Best episode ever? If you watched Tuesday’s two-part 9-1-1: Lone Star, we know you’ve got plenty of feelings to sort out — so let’s do it together.

The full-night event got off to a rocky start, with the long-awaited #TarlosWedding being postponed due to an unspeakable tragedy. (More on that later.) It was a character-defining twist of fate for Carlos, who is “never going to be the same,” actor Rafael Silva tells TVLine.

In the end, the finale did give us the wedding we’d been waiting for, even if certain key family members were no longer able to attend.

“It was the last few days of shooting overall, so there were already a lot of emotions as this chapter was coming to a close with another season in the books,” Ronen Rubinstein adds. “It was really special to be able to celebrate so many things with everyone. We shot that for two days, and it was a magical two days.”

The finale also presented a range of developments for #Tarlos’ fellow 126-ers: Wyatt (who survived!) is now recovering at Judd and Grace’s house; Trevor presented Tommy with the possibility of becoming a preacher’s wife, and she did not hate the idea; and Owen made the difficult decision to remain by Robert’s side in his final moments.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Below, Silva and Rubinstein break down the finale’s biggest twists and emotional surprises, then drop a hint about what the viewers didn’t get to see at the #TarlosWedding…
