Staff TVLine just lately listed “the irrefutable romantic chemistry between 9-1-1‘s Buck and Eddie” as one of many TV blessings for which we’re most grateful — and we’re clearly not alone. Ever since Oliver Stark and Ryan Guzman’s firefighter characters met and bonded at first of Season 2, followers’ need to see them paired has grown exponentially, even when their fervent tweets have but to manifest themselves on display.
Stark on Wednesday reached out to followers on social media to make clear the place he stands on the matter: “The reality is, I don’t know the place the story goes. … I’ve at all times spoken overtly about how wonderful I feel it’s that you’re invested in these two characters, and I completely help that. However I really feel uneasy about RT’ing stuff, as a result of I do know it may typically come throughout as me confirming one thing goes to occur. I don’t wish to get anybody’s hopes up.”
“Our writers 100-percent care about you and respect the viewers,” he added. “I like attending to work for them and utterly belief of their means to craft the story.”
For what it’s value, the Powers That Be are nicely conscious of Stark and Guzman’s inexplicable chemistry, therefore the occasional wink-nods at their character’s potential coupling. Throughout final season’s Christmas episode, a kindly elf mistook Buck and Eddie for a married couple, telling them, “You two have an lovely son.” Fairly than correcting Santa’s misguided helper, Buck merely replied, “Thanks.”
“I do know lots of people are getting that vibe [between Buck and Eddie], which is why I put that little joke on the finish,” government producer Tim Minear instructed TVLine on the time. “Principally, the winsome elf was talking for the viewers. And I’m not saying that the fountain capturing up behind them meant something metaphorically. You determine.”
