‘Tacoma FD’ season 3 episode 9 review: A classic rivalry continued

Lucy’s latest date brings drama to Tacoma FD.

This week’s Tacoma FD opens with Lucy preparing for a hot date and it’s with a guy her father probably wouldn’t approve of. It’s not because he’s shady but because he’s a cop. As the lovebirds head out, we discover he’s related to Terry’s arch enemy, Captain Gerry Polonsky.

The main plotline is a fun way to revisit the station’s rivalry with the local police force. Over the seasons their animosity towards each other has spawned some great comedic moments and the involvement of the next generation of Polonskys and McConkys take it to another level.

Somewhere along the line, Lucy shifts her opportunity for a free lobster dinner with a hot guy to a chance to stick it to her dad. Both she and the chief continue to escalate their feud and continually double down until it reaches ridiculous proportions. Everyone goes along with it and the only people who aren’t on board are them. They can be so hard headed. With so much romance in the air, it’s a bit disappointing that Lt. Salazar and Andy don’t rekindle their relationship.

There are so many familiar faces that return on tonight’s Tacoma FD. Granny becomes a big firefighter buddy and he hopes to be a supportive mentor to an at-risk youth. Unfortunately, he’s paired up with Hunter the rotten kid who was trapped in a well from before. It’s admirable to watch how patient Granny is while trying to get through to his little buddy. But it’s even more amusing to see his approach devolve into tough drill sergeant type love to scare Hunter straight. Alas, a youth like him is never going to change.

Also making an appearance in “Wedding Crashers” is Lucy’s old friend, Delilah. You have to have some sympathy towards her because the running gag just treats her worse and worse. All she wants is to leave for her sister’s wedding (she is the maid of honor) but all the foolishness at the station is getting in the way. Though the events might be able to make her dressing up not go to complete waste.

The most recent Tacoma FD is a fun episode that brings back a ton of familiar faces and further develops the long running firefighter/police rivalry.

New episodes of Tacoma FD air Thursday nights on truTV.
