    Summary

    Maddie went quiet for a moment, looking at him not with pity, but instead with empathy, and shared sadness. “So. What did you find, then?” 

    “An engagement ring.” The words weighed heavy on his tongue. “He’s going to propose to Ana.”

    Summary

    Eddie groans, but he gets down on his knee, setting their beers on the pavement. He works to unknot the laces, then ties them again. He goes to stand, but Buck stops him with a hand on his shoulder.

    “Eddie…” he looks up to see that Buck’s eyes are the size of dinner plates. He leans on his knee, trying to understand why Buck is so flustered, and then he hears the shutter of a camera. In his peripheral, he sees that a crowd has gathered around them, and half of the people have their phones out, recording.

    Eddie’s eyes connect with Buck’s, and while he is panicked, Buck is trying so hard not to laugh that there are tears gathering in the corners of his eyes. The crowd must see it and misread it as Buck being overcome with emotion, because they coo in response.

    “Fuck,” Eddie curses under his breath, quiet enough that only Buck can hear him. “What do I do here?”

    Buck snorts, “Sorry man, I think you’ve got to commit now.”

    Summary

    Carla’s eyebrows raise as she steps into the Diaz home for the first time in months, and she can’t help but purse her lips. She already doesn’t like how comfortable Ms. Flores is in this home, and she’s admittedly upset that she hasn’t heard about this new addition to the Diaz household. She glances briefly at the mantle, seeing the framed photo of her with Christopher and Buck at the last Christmas party, and she wonders where her Buckaroo is and what he thinks of this new update.

    -or-

    Speculation for final episodes of Season 4, including that dinner scene with Eddie, Chris, Carla, and Ana, a possible fire at Buck’s apartment, and feelings realizations. Final chapter now complete!
