The people who defend TK's reactions to finding out about Owen's arrest by blaming Carlos make no sense. They say that if Carlos didn't go all police on TK and instead acted like his boyfriend he wouldn't have had an outburst.
Firstly, I fundamentally disagree with that argument. TK would have had that reaction regardless of what Carlos did.
And secondly, they were both in uniform and are on duty. They, whilst in their uniforms, are first responders 1st and partners 2nd. So Carlos acting professional is totally justified. Also they are standing in TK's workplace.
TK aggressively push Carlos while they were both wearing their uniforms and standing at his workplace! How can anyone defend that by saying Carlos should have acted more like a boyfriend?

“Alright, so, not that I’m complaining, babe, but… what was that?”
“What was what?” Carlos mumbled, already leaning in again, nibbling on TK’s chin.
For once, he didn’t let it distract him. “That overly showy PDA? Pouncing on me like that instead of pulling me into your orbit as you usually do? Don’t get me wrong, it’s certainly hot but… I think I’ve never seen that side of you.”
With a new firefighter joining the 126, Carlos gets a little bit territorial over TK again.
My entry for Day 5 of the @911prideweek: “I love you, that will never change” + comfort
hi bestie so i saw ur one ask where u said that owen has never gone to an award show thingy for tk and here's my hc:
owen has never gone to a big thing for tk aside from his hs graduation (bc from 2x12 he was late, so tk probably asked && owen 'couldnt make it' or tk j never did bc what was the point?)
that being said, he always asked enzo bc enzo was the only one who ever went to them all and after tk recieved his awards and sat back down in his seat, enzo would give him the tightest hug and whisper in his hair, "im so proud of you" and tk would give the biggest smile into enzo's shoulder 😛
I literally was thinking the same thing abt Tk’s graduation babe like
also do not make me cry while im at work people will look at me weird
I feel like TK absolutely did not tell Gwyn and Owen everything. Although way more with Owen.
Like I’m sure he wanted to but he probably thought something like “well if they aren’t going to come or care then what’s the point?”
(But Enzo always knows)
And so over time TK just starts to not tell people much of anything? It’s just a habit and when someone does find out he just gets so confused as to why they are upset and then whoever did is like “TK no-“
Okay so I’ve mentioned it before but I always thought it was weird that when Tommy was listing all of the Awards and things that TK had received and how Owen wasn’t even like “wow sounds like TK” But what if that’s because TK just. Never told him. His dad never really came to his awards things anyway so
