Still from '911: Lone Star' (Fox)

'911: Lone Star' is not a series that shies away from explosive action, but next week's episode takes things to a whole new level as the 126 team deals with a catastrophe of epic proportions. A volcanic eruption turns the heat up and puts the pressure on the crews to keep the residents of their city safe as they face a challenge unlike any they've ever faced before. While that would be enough for it to be a big enough episode on its own, there's one more thing to consider — Episode 3's big crossover, the introduction of which will probably be next episode's cliffhanger.

On the last episode of '911: Lone Star', we saw how life affected those in Austin, Texas, and how the 126 dealt with that. It wasn't just a matter of masks on the job — they had to deal with people choking (quite literally) on Zoom calls, maddened crossbow wielders taking aim at 5G tower repairmen and a veteran who was let down by the American healthcare system. One of the show's new main characters, Tommy Vega (Gina Torres) even joined because of how the pandemic helped her family, by causing her husband to have to close down his restaurant after initial lockdowns, forcing Tommy to return to work. 

It wasn't all bad news however. Owen Strand was informed that his lung cancer treatments were working, and that when the growth stopped, he could have surgery that would remove it completely. What's more, his ex-wife and son's mother Gwyneth (Lisa Edelstein) will be staying with the family for a little more time, allowing Owen and TK (Ronen Rubinstein) to enjoy some quality family time together.

The official synopsis for the episode titled '2100°' reads: "After a volcanic eruption wreaks havoc in Austin, the members of the 126 race to save lives at a college pool party." The crossover episode with its parent season '911' is scheduled to air on February 1 where the Los Angeles team is called in to help with rampant wildfires.

This episode of '911: Lone Star' airs on January 25 at 9 om ET on Fox.
