Back on my bullshit 🙃 hope you like it!
Three Years of Madney
Of love and joy and laughter
Of sadness and tears and trauma
But they've shown what it is like to fight to be with someone you love. They have shown what it's like to overcome challenges most other couples couldn't.
Thank you Jennifer Love Hewitt for her exceptional taste in knowing exactly what Maddie needed and for playing Maddie absolutely perfectly, and to Kenneth Choi for being our Chimney.
So I’ve come up with a theory and I might be completely on the wrong track, but a few dots fit together so I’m running with it!
I think Maddie has gone back to Pennsylvania, specifically to philly and here’s why
I think she’s maybe gone back to a place where she feels safe (and by safe I mean familiar) I know when I had outpatient treatment for my depression I found it easier to go through treatment when I was in my home county rather than where I started in an different place with nothing I knew around me (not the same as PPD I know and everyone is different, but it may have had some bearing)
Drexel University in philly has an outpatient PPD clinic and I think Maddie would prefer outpatient services, it means she has more freedoms than as an in patient - I’m thinking she’s booked herself into a hotel/ air bnb or something while she’s treated.
Do we know where Maddie and Doug lived? I can’t remember if we knew or not, but I feel like it would’ve been a city hospital. I feel like Maddie may have also recognised that she’s not completely over the trauma of what Doug did to her - Frank had her go back to where she killed Doug for healing, maybe she’s repeating - feels the need to return to where he abused her to heal further.
In Philly there are lots of places that go by the name Buckley in philly (the writers giving a nod to the family name and connections)
And Drexel university has a famous clock which chimes - the Rittenhouse clock which has several different chimes and I don’t think it’s unreasonable to think Buck recognises it’s chimes because it’s one of the oldest clocks in the US and is considered the most important clock in America - it’s also an astronomical clock - all the kind of things I can see him finding fascinating/ hyperfixating on as a child.
I could be way off base, and I may not have explained very well, but those chimes have been bugging me and it all kind of fits! The only question is how Buck is going to get the info to Chimney when he’s refusing to pick up Bucks calls!
thinking about buck introducing eddie and christopher to ANYONE and confusing them so thoroughly as to his relationship with the Diaz boys that anyone watching is forced to draw the only possible conclusion that he's married with a kid.
So, in 5x02, the whole 118 fam is in the same fire truck, heading to the LA Zoo because of the breakout, right?
But then at the end of that part, when they’re leaving, Chim and Hen are suddenly in an ambulance (”After careful consideration, I have decided not to endorse this park”).
...WHERE did the other truck come from? And if somebody else was driving it, how did they leave?
Where do the magical extra trucks come from that they can leave separately??? That’s all I wanna know!!!
OH NO ALBERT OH MY GODDDDD
thinking about how buck had said that the team was off without eddie, how everyone was acting weird with chim gone... but when he wasn’t a firefighter after the firetruck/leg/tsunami incidents and he came to the firehouse, he saw everyone acting fine and dandy and getting along with lena... makes you think...
This love is a sure thing.
9-1-1: Madney for my love @honestlydarkprincess
Interesting that 5x04 is called Home And Away. The title seemingly refers to Maddie leaving (away), and Chimney and Buck being left to deal with that (home). But it's also interesting that at the end of the episode Chimney also leaves (away). And Buck reaches out to Eddie for comfort and support, which is freely offered...
dare I say...home?
Three years ago Maddie really said to herself “I’m gonna make a DILF out of that man” and she did and I think thats really cool of her
My Chim portrait is coming along nicely (at last)
Anon asked: Bobby & Chimney or Hen & Chimney?
Join my 1k follower celebration!
Bobby, telling a patient some bad news: I’m sorry Ms. Jackson-
Buck, Eddie, Hen and Chimney, appearing out of thin air: oooh
Chimney sweeps, Budapest, 1972. From the Budapest Municipal Photography Company archive.
Buck: At my age do you know how I'm statistically most likely to die?
Chimney: At the hands of your coworker?
Buck: An accident
Chimney: That's how I'm gonna make it look
