Strand’s moniker “One Night Strand” comes from his inability to create a lasting relationship with someone he likes, despite the fact that he always succeeds in protecting his subordinates and the general public with all his force and ability.
Mateo directs Strand to Ascent, an invite-only dating service for celebrities and influencers when he seeks to pursue a sincere and lasting relationship.
Strand is starting a new chapter in his life with Ascent, and one has to wonder if the app is real.
Let’s see what we can find out!
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD.
Is ‘Ascent’ A Real Dating App On ‘9-1-1: Lone Star’ Series?
It’s possible that Ascent was inspired by a real-life dating app. Mateo comes to the captain’s rescue when Strand begins to use scam applications to find true love.
He introduces Strand to Ascent, which he describes as “a dating app for individuals who don’t need dating apps.” Strand is delighted to use Ascent after Mateo tells him that Ben Affleck, Channing Tatum, and Drew Barrymore are on it.
When he expresses his excitement to Mateo, the latter reminds him that he may only join if a celebrity or influencer who already uses it invites him.
Strand relieves Marjan of her cooking duties for two months in exchange for an invitation. He not only becomes involved, but he also goes on a date with Catherine, the Chief of Staff to the Governor of Texas.
Strand gets a terrific date in Ascent, but no one in the real world has ever done so. The dating app is a work of fiction that does not exist in the real world. The fictional Ascent, on the other hand, has a striking resemblance to the invite-only app Raya.
Raya began as a dating app in 2015 and evolved into a social networking platform over time. According to claims, Ben Affleck, Channing Tatum, and Drew Barrymore are or were members of the app, implying that Ascent is based on Raya.
Raya is a favourite choice for actresses, singers, and other show business professionals because of its exclusivity. Despite the fact that Ascent is a work of fiction, we may surmise that the software is essentially a ‘9-1-1: Lone Star‘ version of Raya.
Captain Strand meets a wonderful match through Ascent and begins to form a possibly meaningful relationship.
Despite Catherine’s dislike for “the Matthew McConaughey fan” version of Strand, his successful attempt to apprehend Katie’s kidnapper persuades her that Strand deserves a second opportunity at dating her.
