‘9-1-1: Lone Star’: Gina Torres On Faith-Filled Premiere Of Tommy Twist And ‘Staying Far, Far Away’ From TK Wedding

SPOILER ALERT: This interview contains spoilers for Monday’s season 4 premiere of “9-1-1: Lone Star” on Fox.

Oh Lord. The premiere of the fourth season of Fox’s “9-1-1” spin-off, “Lone Star,” began with a spark that ignited between Tommy Vega (Gina Torres) and one of the last rescues of the 126, Trevor Parks (series newcomer DB Woodside), and ended with Tommy being surrounded by hellfire when he finds out his new crush is also his new reverend.

“You can’t just go out and have drinks and be careless with the pastor,” Torres says. Variety of the realization from the chief paramedic that the first man she’s been genuinely interested in since her husband Charles died is not a good candidate for a casual fling.

“She’s a grown woman who understands relationships and has been in relationships,” says Torres. “Charles was not the first and he is very clear that he will not be the last. But what does that look like? Really, what does that look like for a woman who maybe doesn’t have that strong of faith? It’s not that she’s weak in faith, but just in terms of being with a pastor, that’s a whole other level. Let me be clear on that. She is a hedonist in many ways. She is a lovely heathen.

While “Lone Star” did explore Tommy’s desire to remain a sexual being a bit as he began to recover from the passing of her husband in season 3, Torres was excited to fully immerse herself in that story in season 4 with the addition from Woodside to The Cast of the Fox Drama.

“That was always the question, how long will he mourn?” Torres says. “And her, let’s call it her awakening last season, as ill-advised as it was, it was certainly a milestone in that, here she is opening herself up to the possibility. And I think her intention was to dip a toe. She’s still very much alive, she’s very viable and sexy and attractive and she knows that her life isn’t over. So what does that mean and what does that look like? She was very cool with slowly introducing someone who might be interesting, who might fit in, which I think is very realistic. You walk in thinking, well, I’ve already had one love of my life, I don’t want to be selfish. And that’s where his heart is: I don’t expect to have another love in my life. At that point, you’re thinking that I want to have a good time, I want company. I want someone who’s a partner, who’s contemporary, who I can laugh at the same things with and that’s where it’s at. He’s certainly not looking for anything serious.”

Elsewhere in the premiere, Tommy’s right-hand man TK Strand (Ronen Rubinstein) and Austin police officer Carlos Reyes (Rafael Silva) are finally engaged and planning their wedding. While Torres says that Tommy is very happy for the newly engaged couple, based on the trouble they get into at the premiere, TK finds out that Carlos is married to his long-lost friend Iris (Lyndsy Fonseca) and needs to get a divorce before they can get married. . — Tommy will not be involved in wedding planning.

“Oh, I’ll stay very, very far away from that,” Torres said. “Tommy is a dear guest. No, no, there are already so many chefs in that kitchen, with whom the public will have a lot of fun”.
