Breaking News: Is Rafael Silva Exiting 9-1-1 Lone Star?

You didn’t believe it would be so simple, did you? Fans of Ryan Murphy’s Fox first-responder drama “9-1-1: Lone Star” were reminded of what program they are watching on Monday’s episode when fiancés T.K. Strand (Ronen Rubinstein) and Carlos Reyes (Rafael Silva) received permission from Carlos’ estranged wife/childhood best friend Iris (Lyndsy Fonseca) to get an annulment eight weeks before T.K. and Carlos’ moved-up wedding

The paramedic, cop, and their friends and family at the 126 are all trying to find Iris before something terrible happens to her, and “Tarlos” shippers are waiting to see what they can do to find her and, perhaps, still find time to organize a beautiful wedding.

I first noticed how they’d written the scenes where T.K. and Carlos are making their case for why they should be married and why Iris should grant Carlos a divorce and allow him to marry T.K. Rubinstein said:

“Her tone under all of it is, you have to prove to me that I should allow this to happen. “It’s one of the most important people in her life, other than her sister, Michelle, so it’s, why should I, pretty much, hand him over to you? Haven’t you almost died, like, three times? Why would I trust this to work?

He continued:

“I love that she kept pushing the buttons, and I remember when we shot that, all three of us had sort of a different inner monologue going on. “And Chad would whisper something to me, and Chad would whisper something to Rafa and Chad would whisper something to Lyndsy. And we all had our own scenes happening in our heads.”

Rubinstein was especially appreciative that T.K. and Iris had a one-on-one scene after that so that T.K. could defend his man on his terms. He said:

“I was really fortunate to have a one-on-one scene with Lyndsy, where I go back to the shelter when everybody is telling me not to go and I’m like, I’m just gonna do it. “And I’m pleading to her, ‘I love this man, he is literally my everything.’ And then of course she says, ‘Well, I don’t think he could literally be your everything, can you breathe without him?’ She’s still poking, but at the end of the day, she approves and thinks they should get an annulment and we have this big hug moment. And just when you think everything’s going to be smooth, she’s like, you’re just what I expected. And that’s a saber through T.K.’s heart that leads to another great scene where Carlos is like, you are a hot mess. I love the episode so much.”

Rubinstein feels certain in saying that:

“By the end of the episode, Carlos is aware that Iris has given her approval, but he also learns that she has vanished. Fox has already teased that Carlos will be hit in the head with a shovel during his search for her in the promos for this season of “9-1-1: Lone Star,” “it’s not going to be a very smooth” from here. According to Silva, though, that strange twist has a purpose beyond just upsetting “9-1-1: Lone Star”

Silva said:

“It’s network TV, and there are a bunch of shows out right now: How do we engage the public to come and sit down on their couches and turn on the TV and tune into this wonderful show?”

“Well, we make a mess out of it. We put shit all over the place. And that has to be done in order to engage people to come back and see what these characters are going to go through and how do they solve the problems that they have right in front of them.”

Silva continued:

“Right from the first episode, everything changed, we have eight weeks to plan this wedding. Oh my, God! This is going to be Episode 4? Or 5? Where are we going! No, Iris is going to go missing, shit hits the fan, Carlos gets hit in the head with a shovel — why, because he’s trying to answer some questions and it leads him to getting hit in the head with a shovel.”

Silva said that all of this craziness, while likely complicated for big Tarlos fans who want to see these two make it down the aisle:

“allows us to earn this wedding, not just to have it.”

“We need to earn this,” There are questions: who is going to officiate the wedding? Where is it going to be, what venue? Is it a venue? Who is going to be there? Are there family members that we don’t know about that are coming into town for this? It allows showrunner Tim Minear and the writers to have time and space to marinate on thoughts. At the end of the day, what we’re going to get is just a beautiful moment, just a truthful, beautiful moment between two people that love each other. And there is a lot more to come.”
