Season 3 Episode Guide

Episode 1 - Devil

Following his son Connor's tragic death and Uncle Teddy's conviction for murdering the drunk driver who killed him, Tommy continues fighting against his own perilous downward spiral. If his ongoing battle with alcoholism wasn't enough, he must also care for his increasingly difficult father while facing Janet's determination to get a divorce. And on top of it all, when word comes down that smoking has been banned at all the city's firehouses, Jerry's challenge to see who can go the longest without a cigarette forces Tommy to forego the one vice that he has left. After finding condoms in her son's drawer, Sheila asks Tommy to talk to Damien. When he finally does broach the uncomfortable topic, Tommy is stunned to discover that his godson is having sex with his thirty-eight-year-old high school science teacher. But when Tommy tries to ask her to stop, Ms. Turbody refuses to discuss the matter at school as she makes it clear that she knows all about him and his problems. Meanwhile, as Jerry faces an unexpected price increase for his ailing wife's nursing home care, Lou stumbles onto a porn film starring Candy, the con artist who left him broke. As the bet to see who can stop smoking takes its toll on everyone at 62 Truck, Tommy gets word that Janet is ready to settle their divorce. And though he's not sure how he can come up with the money, he agrees to her terms. As one by one the firefighters give in to the urge to have a cigarette, Tommy asks Teddy to make a deal with the D.A., only to discover that his uncle has no remorse for what he did. And after the news that Janet has started seeing someone else pushes him closer to the edge, Tommy finally snaps at the scene of a fire after failing to revive a young girl he tried to rescue.


Episode 2 - Discovery

As he and Sheila plan a birthday party for his dad, Tommy discovers that, unbeknownst to anyone else on their crew, Franco is studying for an upcoming lieutenant's exam. With the ongoing pressure of their work and home lives taking its toll, the firefighters at 62 Truck have a hard time staying true to their pledge to stop smoking. And when Jerry discretely asks for some help to cover the increase in his wife's medical care, Lou reluctantly agrees, even though he's tapped out, too. Meanwhile, Sean tells Franco that he is secretly dating Tommy's sister, Maggie. While out with his crew at a hot Manhattan dance club, Tommy immediately becomes the target of an overly-talkative younger woman, as Mike is encouraged by some friends from his Academy class to apply for a transfer once his probation is over. While Franco is pursued by an older woman with sex on her mind, reeling under the crushing financial pressure of having been fleeced by an accomplished con artist, Lou drunkenly calls his ex-wife to ask for a family heirloom watch that he wants to sell. But when he goes to her house to steal it and is badly cut by some broken glass, Lou begins wondering if his life is even worth living anymore. Meanwhile, as Tommy learns that his daughter Colleen is now a Born Again Christian, and Jerry realizes how hard it will be to move his wife into a less expensive care facility, Sean worries about what Tommy would do if he ever found out that he is seeing Maggie. At the Chinese restaurant where the elder Gavin has insisted his party be held, Tommy tries his best to keep his temper in check, especially after Janet shows up. However, when Tommy inadvertently spots them discretely holding hands underneath the table, he realizes that Janet is seeing his brother Johnny. Enraged, Tommy loses his cool and unleashes a vicious assault, leaving Johnny bleeding and badly injured on the street outside.


Episode 3 - Torture

With Jerry's desperate pleas for money causing friction with Lou, the beating Tommy dished out after learning that his brother is seeing Janet has Sean worried about what fate has in store for him if Tommy were ever to learn that he's dating his sister, Maggie. Troubles also abound for Franco, whose older girlfriend, Alicia, isn't about to let her considerable fortune stand in the way of their relationship. As Jerry sheepishly approaches his ailing wife's estranged brother for help with her medical bills, Franco worries after seeing Lou wandering the streets drunk. Meanwhile, when Tommy demands that she stop seeing his nephew, Damien, Nell Turbody agrees -- but only if he will take the teenage boy's place in her bed. And during a jailhouse visit, Tommy learns that, now that his crime has made him a celebrity behind bars, Uncle Teddy has no interest in ever getting out. Unaware that Tommy and Franco are conspiring to torture him, Sean continues struggling to keep his relationship with Maggie under wraps. Then, after Nell calls to break things off with Damien, Sheila finds a stash of Viagra and roofies hidden in his room and asks that Tommy look into what's going on with her son. As Franco turns to Tommy with his concerns about Lou, when Tommy's refusal to acknowledge any of her calls leads him to miss picking up their daughters after school, Janet threatens to up the ante in their divorce. Meanwhile, Sean is devastated after a horse he rescued following an accident is later killed by a passing bus. Though he comes down hard on Mike after finding him reading a popular book about Buddhist philosophy, Lou's struggle to right his own sinking ship sends him into a bookstore to steal a copy for himself. And when he realizes how much Alicia paid for the watch she gave him as a gift, Franco says that there is no way he can keep it. Finally, after Lou rebuffs Tommy's efforts to reach out to him, Jerry lands a second job at a neighborhood bar. And as Tommy urges Damien to put his relationship with Mrs. Turbody behind him, Mike seeks comfort in the arms of his roommate, Chris.


Episode 4 - Sparks

While hurrying to the aid of a Harlem man, the crew of 62 Truck stops to help an overturned school bus full of private school students. Though the firefighters consider themselves heroes, Jerry is soon lambasted in the press for stopping to rescue the wealthy, and mostly white, children, at the expense of a black man. Unable to continue his cover up, Sean admits that he's seeing Maggie, but is surprised to find out that Tommy has known ever since his dad's birthday party. Yet instead of being upset about their being a couple, Tommy advises that Sean get out of the relationship before Maggie does something crazy. Meanwhile, as Jerry's first day at work finds him cleaning bathrooms instead of tending bar, Sheila insists that Tommy seek out a sperm bank to ensure that the Gavins will have a male heir to work in the fire department. And despite their sexual relationship, Mike and his roommate, Chris, insist that they aren't gay. Though Franco has a hard time finding the words, Alicia makes it clear that, despite his misgivings about their differences in age, income, and social status, she still wants a relationship with him and his daughter, Keela. While most of his friends are struggling to manage just one relationship, Tommy is simultaneously dealing with Janet, Sheila, Maggie, and Nell Turbody. And to top it all off, after agreeing to preserve the family's legacy by using a sperm bank, the sexual demands placed on Tommy leave him too exhausted to do any good. As Sean refuses to heed Tommy's warnings about the problems that lay ahead with Maggie, Lou dismisses any suggestion that he needs to pull himself together. However, after coming within inches of suicide, he wakes Tommy in the middle of the night to ask for help. Finally, after agreeing to a face-to-face meeting with Janet to discuss their divorce, Tommy's phone conversation with Johnny reveals that the seeds of the affair between his brother and his wife were planted when they were in high school.

But when his brother-in-law steps up and offers to help pay for some of Jeannie's medical bills, Jerry's new affair scotches the deal. Aware that Franco is looking for her, Alicia drops by the firehouse, telling Tommy how she's determined to spare Keela from being hurt by her dad's unhealthy relationships with women.
