9-1-1: Lone Star is probably not a supernatural drama, however there’s no denying the magic we noticed on display this week.
Tuesday’s episode discovered Grace as soon as once more wrestling along with her father’s previous infidelity, ultimately lashing out at him for making her complicit in his secret. Naturally, she then blamed herself when Papa Williams suffered a coronary heart assault whereas babysitting Charlie and wanted emergency surgical procedure.
Then got here the magic: Whereas seated at her father’s bedside, Grace was joined by her sisters (performed by Sierra McClain‘s real-life siblings China Anne and Lauryn) for a harmonious efficiency of Nat King Cole’s “Smile” that woke Benjamin after surgical procedure.
“It was an entire out-of-body expertise,” McClain tells TVLine of attending to sing alongside her sisters on display. The trio, which now data below the identify Thriii, final sang on TV collectively in a 2012 episode of Disney Channel’s A.N.T. Farm. “It was one factor to speak about it with [showrunner Tim Minear], however after we had been really on that mattress and so they say motion and your two real-life sisters are standing there subsequent to you when you’re enjoying a personality that you just’ve performed for 4 years — it’s simply, I don’t know. I used to be utterly out of my physique and over the moon. There are not any phrases to explain it, however we had a lot enjoyable.”
The concept to deliver her sisters onto the present was McClain’s concept, a proposal to which Minear was extraordinarily receptive throughout their pre-season chat about Grace’s upcoming storylines. And it was Minear who recommended “Smile,” a track the McClain sisters had by no means sung collectively earlier than. Studying music producer Tim Davis’ “lovely” association and recording along with her sisters within the studio was “a magical expertise throughout.”
This was additionally an eventful episode for Owen, who discovered that Kendra is in an open marriage, which led to an comprehensible breakup. That might have been sufficient, however as a result of this can be a 9-1-1 present, Kendra’s husband Brett later froze to dying of their at-home cryotherapy chamber. And that’s not all! Brett’s precise reason for dying is believed to be poison, and because the man courting his spouse, Owen is sort of actually on the brief record of suspects.
Grace was too busy along with her circle of relatives drama to weigh in on the Owen scenario, however McClain thinks it’s all for the most effective.
“, I’m really unsure Grace would have a lot to say, to be trustworthy with you,” McClain says. “She would in all probability simply watch and nod and say slightly prayer. Simply once you assume Owen’s carried out all of it… not fairly!”
