Bobby / Athena + hands
After I went to bed I had more thoughts/speculations.
How long did Jeffrey have Harry? 1-2 days... max? Athena keeps talking bout how Jeffrey "turned Harry against her." I don't think it's possible in that short amount of time. Yet she is hyper focused on it.
I wonder if the writers are going that way though as they included a scene of Harry reading an article about his mom. An article that may not have been entirely flattering.
For Athena, I want her to have consequences to her actions, "going rogue" etc. While the story arch is flattering for the actor (lots of meaty things) it's not for the character and I haven't enjoyed any time they delve into deeper issues with Athena. Each time they have her overreaching and it doesn't sit well with me.
I'm not sure what I'm hoping for around the Harry and Athena storyline; perhaps just a quick resolution because I just don't think it's plausible that Harry turn against his mother that quickly (especially after seeing how Harry had been acting: the hugs, breakfast etc).
To switch tracks. I appreciated how May took control of the situation at work, while I don't agree with the "you're in my way approach" as I feel like politeness should always be in the forefront of a professional's mind (at least as a first step), Claudette was sitting on May's desk - so a little attitude was warranted.
What was the point of May revealing she tried to kill herself to the Caller when there was no reaction from the Caller? If the writers wanted to prove that sometimes being personal does help the situation, then the Caller should have crawled over to the toilet and forced herself to throw up. Or made a movement in that direction, something to show that May's words hit home. That would have proven the point of being more than just the script. Instead the Caller passed out and May's words didn't really matter; not in the end.
So ... what was the point?
look I'm sorry but Harry was RIGHT, Athena has been prioritizing her job and a dead criminal over her son. She is a rogue cop and she deserves whatever shit comes her way as a result of hitting him. Her actions this episode were gross.
#911onFOX Review: Peer Pressure (Season 5 Episode 5)
As far as 9-1-1 episodes go, this one is probably one of the least memorable of the whole series. 9-1-1 Season 5 Episode 5, “Peer Pressure,” suffers from out of character moments and dull emergency stories. Some of the plot lines for this episode could have been so much more captivating if executed even slightly different. Honestly, so many times I felt more like watching a soap opera than the…

Is it fair to be sad there was not touching Buck and Eddie scene? :P 'Cause I'm greedy and want one in every episode.
Buck carries the weight on his shoulders sometimes. I'm not surprised that he feels like Chim leaving is his fault... but it's not. Especially since we get confirmation that there was a scene between Chim and Bobby and also Eddie and Chim - - which was assumed due to some of the behind the scene photos. I'm so glad Maddie called at the end and with the hint that Buck may know where she is. He should text Chimney so he can go there.
Maddie calls from an unknown number to Buck, but Chim is sending Maddie videos - I assumed to her phone. So why not call Buck from her phone? Or is Chim sending emails? I mean this is trivial but it doesn't add up.
I thought Taylor was pretty sweet , while her story wasn't completely "apples and apples" she did try to get through to Buck with "not everything is about you" - - which she delivered in a kind way. That he needed to hear, to adjust his perception. And there are things going on with the 118: Bobby (he's worried about Athena), Eddie (who is trying to find his way) - nothing that has to do with Buck directly but Buck is feeling things are off.
So of course Buck immediately things, I'm the problem, argues that he should transfer; to solve a problem that didn't really exist. Buck still thinks of himself as expendable, did he not hear what Eddie said previously? I was hoping some of his self-perception would improve. (His happy mood toward the end was nice to see. Although it did come with another Taylor/Buck scene, where she's being thoughtful. dammit.)
Hen and Eddie. These two are fun. I appreciate that Eddie said "I'm an excellent dancer" - cause I do think Eddie is an excellent dancer. And we need to see it.
I liked that there was some growing pains as they tried to settle into their roles. And Eddie driving the ambulance was cool, since he hadn't done that on camera before.
Buck and Ravi Awww man Buck seems to have a tone when speaking to Ravi perhaps he's just off kilter because the Team is jumbled and he's not processing the change well. His patience seems to be short although his explanations seem to be spot on.
I love Buck, but... I don't really like the way he treated Ravi for most of the episode. I dare say it was unprofessional and he needed to do better.
Hen and Ravi were super adorable (and Bobby's office again!!!) Hen's insight into Buck is kind and her explanation to Ravi about Buck protecting his 118 family by ensuring that Ravi worthy, was helpful. I liked that explanation. Still doesn't explain away his horrible attitude.
Athena, May, Harry etc I love May. May is the best and I hope she continues to be the best. (I don't like Claudette, and I don't even want to talk about her)
Harry called Bobby, damn, he did try. I like Step Dad Bobby and supportive husband Bobby. His voice of reason is something Athena needs right now as she is heading down a dark path within her mind. And he followed that up with a disapproving glance after Athena slapped Harry. Side note: I'm glad the slap didn't happen in a therapy session (which the preview made it look like that possibility) I would've preferred it not happen at all. But I do appreciate that Athena's partners are showing her that she needs help.

Your first thought might be "No, obviously not. Liz said the Countess is camera shy and Ramona said she can't be photographed" HOWEVER I have some thoughts to add.
Today I saw a tweet that said that the "Vampires can't see their reflection in the mirror" trope was supposed to be due to the silver used in mirrors and that since nowadays mirrors tend to use aluminum instead of silver, vampires should be able to see their reflection in modern mirrors. A reply added that this is the case for photographs as well.
Now we already know that AHS: Hotel vampires can see their reflection in the mirror because we see the Countess getting ready in front of one multiple times (and Alex after she is turned, too).
So the aluminum rule holds up (though I don't actually remember if the vampires have any issues with silver but, oh well).
Now what's the deal with the cameras? I tried to do some googling and people on forums brought up the point that vampires might be able to be photographed with digital cameras, since they don't use silver. There were some discussions about whether that's true or not but ultimately it's up to the writer of the vampire in question so let's take a look at AHS: Hotel again.
The biggest plothole concerning Ramona's "I can't be photographed" statement is that just a day earlier, the Countess had watched her kill Will Drake on the CCTV she'd installed. Trying to fix this plothole a while ago, I thought maybe only vampires could see each other on camera BUT the whole "digital cameras work and traditional ones do not" actually makes a lot more sense.
Maybe the vampires of AHS: Hotel can be photographed by digital cameras and Liz and Ramona just didn't know about it.
The Countess has an iPhone so she probably figured it out sooner or later, otherwise she wouldn't have even bothered putting up the CCTV to watch Ramona. But perhaps she really was "camera shy" in the sense that she didn’t want anyone to know she could be photographed now, so they wouldn't ever bother trying. (In the case of Will Drake's wedding it was certainly also about the fact that she didn't want the outside world to know she was marrying him to avoid accusations by the public once he died.)
Digital cameras weren't popularized until the late 1990s so when the Countess and Liz Taylor met, the fact was still that she couldn't be photographed. Perhaps she never bothered telling her later when she figured out it was possible with the new digital cameras.
For Ramona the explanation as to why she wouldn't know is easy. She herself said she was stuck in amber with her father since 1992, the outside world just passing her by. She's only starting to discover some of the newer technology (the internet, Hulu) and maybe she hasn't come into contact with the fact that she can be photographed with digital cameras now.
Another example worth mentioning is the photo Scarlett tried to take of Holden. Holden only appears as a blob in the picture but he's not entirely invisible. Scarlett moves her phone abruptly when Holden suddenly leans into her as she takes the picture so the picture might just be blurred due to her sudden movements.
TLDR; in conclusion, the AHS: Hotel vampires can be photographed by digital cameras now and some of them (like Ramona) just don't know it yet.
