Buck is jealous of Eddie's new friendship in exclusive “9-1-1” preview as Oliver Stark teases 'big step forward'

The actor is "really excited to see the future of" how his character moves forward after the events of season 7, episode 4, "Buck Bothered and Bewildered."

Things may go a little Buck wild on Thursday's 9-1-1.

For its 100th episode, the ABC first responder drama has been teasing a Bachelor crossover (we can thank Jennifer Love Hewitt for that!), but that's not all viewers can expect from the milestone event.

"We wanted to pay homage to these characters that we've built across the years. And there is a Buck storyline, I guess, at the center of it, but there are also some other storylines that are just as meaningful," actor Oliver Stark tells Entertainment Weekly.

But the actor may be playing a little coy, given that the episode is titled "Buck Bothered and Bewildered." In a preview clip exclusive to EW, Buck is seen getting jealous of how close his "buddie" Eddie (Ryan Guzman) has gotten to Tommy (Lou Ferigno Jr.).

"Listen, I think it's great. You can't have enough friends, right?" Buck says, while clearly feeling the opposite.

"Right," Eddie replies. "You know, It's like that thing when you meet somebody and you just...click. You know what I mean?"

"I do," Buck answers.

So where will things go from there? (And will Anirudh Pisharody's Ravi get out of that sewer?)

"It's certainly a big step forward for my character," Stark teases, "and one that I'm really excited to see the future of."

9-1-1 season 7, episode 4 airs Thursday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
