‘9-1-1’ Fall Finale Sneak Peek: Santa Ana Winds Make Things Weird (VIDEO)

Things get weird in Los Angeles with the Santa Ana winds, and in the 9-1-1 fall finale, the members of the 118 will be dealing with twists on some of the emergencies they’ve seen in the past — like in TV Insider’s exclusive sneak peek.

“Every year I think, ‘Well that’s it, we’ve seen everything now,’ and then the Santa Anas blow in, and it’s like, ‘Oh, look, something weirder,'” Buck (Oliver Stark) remarks as he walks with Bobby (Peter Krause) and Eddie (Ryan Guzman).

While Eddie argues that they’ve seen severed hands in the past (so nothing new), Buck points out, “yeah, usually in the general vicinity of its owner.” They join Hen (Aisha Hinds) and Chimney (Kenneth Choi) as they examine said hand, which has not been cut off. So what happened? It’s possible it was blown off, but by what?

Watch the clip above for a possibility and to see what the members of the 118 must do to find the person who has lost a hand.

In the fall finale “Red Flag,” the Santa Ana winds bring in a variety of weirder-than-usual emergencies as the 118 respond to a family dog retrieving a severed hand and a young woman sleep-driving into the station. Meanwhile, Bobby worries about his AA sponsor, Denny (Declan Pratt) questions Hen and Karen (Tracie Thoms) about his biological parents, and Chimney thinks he’s found the perfect house for him and Maddie (Jennifer Love Hewitt).

After this episode, 9-1-1 will return in the spring.
