Wrapping Alert:
If you haven’t already watched Monday’s episode of Fox’s “9-1-1,” titled “Home Invasion,” don’t read on.

Following a rocky road, “9-1-1” sees Maddie Buckley (Jennifer Love Hewitt) take back control of her life this week, and Hewitt makes a move she never thought her character would be able to make this week. The early days of Fox’s first responder drama.

with DifferenceHewitt narrates Monday’s episode, as Maddie deals with issues of faith at home — she and Chimney Madga, a nanny for baby Ji-eun — and in her home away from home, a 9-1-1 call center — where her new recruit gives the personal information of people with medical emergencies to burglars. Where she made the choice to turn around using her access to illegal activities to feed and work as a midwife.

Noah’s betrayal of new call center worker Maddy almost gets her fired. Considering her past, how long do you think it will take her to get over this?

This is a very personal thing that happened to Noah, so in that big scene with him, when she explained, you didn’t really capture this, it’s huge for her. And clearly, this is a breach of faith and a big betrayal. But this new Maddy – Maddy 2.0, we’ll call her – will learn and perhaps learn not to take everything with her for so long as she did in the past. While Noah walks away and karmically deals with whatever happens to him based on his actions, Maddie walks away from it and is fine. But I think because of who Maddy is and who Doug has been to her in her life, Maddy will always have trust issues. Unfortunately, she continues to believe in such love and compassion all the time. Sometimes it’s good, and sometimes it’s not so good. And in this case, it was not the right choice.

Conversely, can you break down Maddie’s choices to hire and fire nanny Magda in a comic-relief story?

It was a very interesting story. And I’ve obviously dealt with that in my own life, having kids and trying to figure out who you trust with your kids, where you let them go, your own personal beliefs and how you want things to be done in your home. What I really liked about that story was Maddy – even though she has GPS in her G-things – Maddy takes the lead in finding this foster home manager and deciding that it’s right for them because it’s her. Ready to get back to work. And I love that Maddie is finally like, “I can’t take this in my own house, I don’t think this is right.” I don’t know if she could have done that two seasons ago. The woman who played McDa, Dendre Alyn Taylor, and I have actually worked together many times over the last 20 years and she is one of my favorite actresses. So it was very exciting for me when she came. It was great, and I said to her, “Thank God I don’t have to chase you on camera, because I love you so much that I cry the whole time.”

I hope Maddie and Chimney find someone to help them. Maddie has been through a lot, I don’t think her trust issues are without reason. But it was a fun story, and I can’t wait to see who they end up with. And the big thing was less of Magda and more of Maddy, G and Chimney I think are now living in Chimney’s very small bachelor pad. And they are expanding in their relationship, but they are not expanding in space. So I think that’s tough.

Are you suggesting another place for couples soon?

Certainly, in the finale of the winter, an interesting story line will be changed to another place. It won’t go as planned, I can tell you that much.

What do you think about Maddie’s response to his friend and his friend’s wife’s choice to become a sperm donor in last week’s episode?

I don’t know how Maddy would react to that. We haven’t played anything yet. I don’t even know if Maddy knew what was going to happen. I think Buck is a lot of people in their 20s and 30s who are constantly figuring out what they’re going to be, who they’re going to be, what their story is, what their story is in life. Be it the main character or the guest star and what it all means. So I like Buck for that, but so far Maddie hasn’t commented on it and there’s so much backstory, I don’t think she even knows about it yet.
