It remains unclear why the pair split, with character Nancy Gillian asking her fellow paramedic TK during the episode about the decision, revealing that even their friends didn’t know the real reason.
Showrunner Tim Minear admitted to TV Insider that the creative decision to have the pair end their relationship off-screen was “in a weird way more interesting”.

He added: “One of our strengths [in this show] is not just tearing people apart, but it’s the reunions. It’s putting them back together. It’s them earning their place back at the side of the person that they belong with. That’s the journey, and then that’s the reward.”
Lone Star follows Rob Lowe’s firefighter Owen Strand, and his son TK, as they move from New York to Austin, Texas for a fresh start.
TK and Carlos have been on and off since episode one
Gina Torres, Natacha Karam, and Jim Parrack all also star, and season three will see Firehouse 126 split up after the events of the season two finale.
The season three premiere deals with an ice storm hitting the city of Austin; it is based on the true 2021 weather event which left the city without power for four days and killed over 200 people.
The series is a spin-off of the hugely popular 9-1-1 which follows the lives of Los Angeles first responders, including Captain Bobby Nash, played by Peter Krause and the 118 – Evan ‘Buck’ Buckley (Oliver Stark), Eddie Diaz, (Ryan Guzman), Hen Wilson (Aisha Hinds) and Howard ‘Chimney’ Han (Kenneth Choi) – as they respond to emergencies with the help of LAPD patrol sergeant Athena Grant (Angela Bassett), and 911 operator Maddie Buckley (Jennifer Love Hewitt).
