The highly anticipated seventh season of 9-1-1 is almost here, but one fan-favorite couple might be in grave danger. Do Bobby and Athena die on 9-1-1 Season 7? Keep reading to find out.
9-1-1 follows the heroic firefighters, paramedics and other emergency personnel at the Los Angeles Fire Department’s fictional Station 118 in Los Angeles, California. Created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear, the procedural drama premiered in January 2018 and spawned the spin-off series 9-1-1: Lone Star. It stars Angela Bassett, Peter Krause, Oliver Stark, Aisha Hinds, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Ryan Guzman, among others. The show aired its first six seasons on FOX, but it was canceled by the network in May 2023 and picked up by ABC.
Fans were shocked when Bobby Nash (Krause) and Athena Grant (Bassett) first got together, but the unlikely pairing had immediate chemistry and they quickly became a fan-favorite couple. Both of their lives may be at risk in the upcoming Season 7, however, and fans are very worried for them.
Do Bobby and Athena die on 9-1-1 Season 7?
Do Bobby and Athena die on 9-1-1 Season 7? Although we don’t know for sure, several promos for Season 7 suggest that the married couple may be in serious danger. During the Season 6 finale, Bobby and Athena set out for a last-minute cruise ship vacation. “We’ll call them when we get there,” Bobby told Athena, referring to the rest of their crew. Athena jokingly responded, “maybe not,” which could have been a hint that they wouldn’t get the chance.
In a Season 7 teaser shared on the show’s Instagram account, a cruise ship can be seen exploding and beginning to sink. A 9-1-1 call begins to play and a woman can be heard saying: “I’m on a cruise … I think there was an explosion!” A hand that looks like Athena’s then slams against the cruise ship window. “I can’t get out,” the voice tells the dispatcher. “There’s water everywhere, we’re going down!” While it’s hard to tell if the voice belongs to Athena, fans are worried that it’s the same cruise ship the couple were headed out on. “I CANNOT tell if it’s athena’s voice or not because it vaguely sounds like her but we don’t hear athena’s voice with so much distress often,” one fan wrote. Another was sure that it was Athena, writing: “That’s Athena Voice! Y’all better stop playing in my face this early!” A third fan noted that 9-1-1‘s network change could indicate that a main character will be killed off. “Now that 911 is on abc it makes sense bc abc is not afraid to have characters killed off, so we will see!” they wrote.
Plenty of ABC shows have had their main characters killed off. Grey’s Anatomy killed of protagonist Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey), as well as several other main characters, and its spin-off, Station 19, killed off the beloved Dean Miller (Okieriete Onaodowan), in addition to many other characters.
