9-1-1: Lone Star (2020) s03e01 Episode Script

The Big Chill

1 CHIEF BOWMAN: Please state your full name and rank for the record.
Owen Marshall Strand.
Captain, 126.
CHIEF BOWMAN: I'll remind you, Captain, that you are entitled to have a union rep present for these proceedings.
I'm not here to hide behind anybody.
Well, frankly, I'm disappointed that you're here at all.
Regarding the events of last week, May 24th do you deny that you struck a superior officer without provocation? I deny it was without provocation, and I'm not so sure I would use the word "superior.
" Deputy Chief Tyson was not yet deputy chief when it struck him.
And as for provocation, he used his influence to shutter my firehouse over a personal grudge.
All due respect, that's a bunch of bull and Captain Strand knows it.
What I do know, Billy, is that you've always wanted to captain the 126.
It's like an obsession with you.
And when you couldn't have her, like a scorned lover you made sure that nobody else could either.
I would just remind Captain Strand that the decision to not reopen the 126 was not personal.
It's about the budget.
And numbers.
Numbers you yourself put together.
So if you would like to blame anybody, blame yourself.
And yet, I blame you.
CHIEF BOWMAN: Gentlemen, the purpose of this hearing is to decide what, if any, disciplinary action will be taken against Captain Strand for his assault on Deputy Chief Tyson.
This is not about the fate of the 126.
Well, it damn well should be.
Suspend me, fire me, clap me in irons.
What happens to me isn't important.
What matters is the 126 and the people who comprise it, people who've uprooted their lives to serve this city.
And have done so in exemplary fashion.
You're not just closing a firehouse, you're breaking up a family.
So I am here to respectfully ask for another chance for some more time to audit the books.
I'm confident that I can find a way to keep the house open.
What? TOMMY: How bad is it? - Not great.
- Did they can you? - Suspended.
- For how long? - Unclear.
- What about us? For the time being, they'd like you to stay in your temporary assignments permanently.
Permanently? I-I don't understand.
So they're really not gonna reopen the 126th? Not only are they not opening, but they've red-tagged the building for demolition.
- They're tearing it down.
- They can't do that.
They're the city.
They can do whatever they want.
So it's really over then.
You kidding me? This isn't the end.
This isn't even the beginning of the end.
- Is it the middle? - They knock us down seven times, - we get back up eight.
- That's right.
The 126 is our home.
We built it together, we're gonna fight for it together, like a family.
- As a family.
- That's right, Captain.
These people have zero idea who they are up against.
No, they really don't.
So we fight, we're gonna keep fighting.
And we never give up until hell freezes over.
: Travis County remains under a severe winter storm alert.
Residents are advised to shelter in place and stay off the roads, which officials say are icy and extremely hazardous.
God, you hear that, Carol? We're officially breaking the law now.
Oh, would you stop? We are not.
Well, he just said residents have to stay off the roads, the icy hazardous roads.
Honey, I love you, but I need you to shut up now.
I grew up in Ann Arbor.
I know how to drive in the snow - [THUDS.]
Oh, God! [SIGHS.]
WOMAN: See, like my dad always said, "Steer into the swerve.
Come on.
We can walk from here.
You babies be good.
We'll be right back.
You see any? MAN: Nothin'.
You? WOMAN: Nothing.
It is chilly.
Joe, maybe we should pack it up.
I think I found one.
WOMAN: Joe, be careful! We don't know how stable that ice is! Okay, pal.
I'm gonna scoop you up and get you all warm and toasty.
So please don't bite me.
- Oh, God! - What is it? There's a boy under the ice.
WOMAN: A boy? MAN: I think he's dead.
Folks, it's time to bring in your plants, your pets, and your husband if he's in the doghouse, because it just might get cold enough to see a few snowflakes out there.
Thanks to a polar jet stream from Canada, our temperatures could creep all the way down to freezing Jacques, you wanted to see me? - JACQUES: Captain Vega.
Please, come in.
They're saying we might get a flurry or two today.
Bet little Lizzy and Emmy are excited.
Izzy and Evie.
And, yes, they're ready for it.
JACQUES: Adorable.
Listen, I wanted to go over a few details on a call your team ran last shift.
The slip and fall at Sunny Glades Senior Living.
Did something happen after we took her to the hospital? Did we miss something? No.
No, no.
You called it.
She's fine.
In fact, she sent snickerdoodles.
That's sweet.
I'm just glad everything worked out.
But did it, though? I see here you somehow managed to avoid administering a single drug en route to the hospital.
She didn't ask for anything.
And that's where you as a professional come in to make professional recommendations.
To upsell controlled substances, you mean.
Captain Vega, this company's mission is to provide not only elite care, but quality comfort.
Look, it's right there on the wall.
We're not some municipal service funded by taxpayers, Vega.
We're a privately held company with all the financial pressures and opportunities that come with it.
If that's not a fit for you, I get it.
But you need to understand you're not at the 126 firehouse anymore.
- You don't have to tell me that.
- Good.
Then I hope we don't have to have this conversation again.
So I'm thinking I'll make my signature micheladas Ginger beer for yours And then I'll break out Catan.
A proper 126 hang just like the old times.
So who did you invite so far? Ah, usual suspects.
How usual and how suspect? If you wanna know if Carlos is invited, dude, just ask.
- This is sad.
Is Carlos coming? He is invited.
I do not know if he's coming.
Are you kidding me, Nancy? I told you two I'm not taking sides.
Look, I just think, you know, if you're gonna have a 126 hang, it should be exclusive to the 126 crew.
There is no 126 crew.
The 126 does not exist anymore.
So I think it's okay if I bend the rules.
- Hey, Cap.
- Hey.
So what did step-Count Dracula want? [CHUCKLES.]
To give us these cookies from Mrs.
And a friendly reminder to gouge our patients on every call.
Cap, can we please get the hell out of this capitalist cesspool already? I would love to, but where would we go? Think about it this way, right? At least here we get to stay together and we're still making a difference, so Yeah.
You keep telling yourself that.
Mm! Snickerdoodles do not lie.
Here, try one.
- Cap.
- Really? TK: Mm-hmm.
Mm! See, it's not so bad here.
JUDD: Damn it.
Judson Ryder, you've been in here all night? JUDD: Yeah, there's no time for sleep with this nursery ain't ready yet.
You look like you're fit to pop.
I don't know how I fell so far behind.
GRACE: Well, sweetheart, the baby's not gonna be able to see but ten inches in front of her face for the first two months, so, I think you've got a little time.
JUDD: Yeah.
That's not what's bothering you, though.
No, I reckon it ain't.
I know how hard what's happening this morning must be for you, sweetheart.
But you have a 24-hour shift.
You gotta get some sleep.
I mean, how am I gonna get any shut-eye knowing what they're gonna do to the 126? Well, if you don't do it for your sake, at least do it for folks that'll be depending on you out there.
Okay? Don't worry about this.
I will finish your rhino tomorrow.
What, rhino? GRACE: Yes.
That's an elephant.
- GRACE: Is it really, Judd? - Yes, really! Oh, okay.
This is a, this is a rabbit, right? Anybody ever tell you you play dirty? Yeah, whatever.
I win, don't I? Yeah, most of the time you do.
: No.
- What was that? - It's nothin'.
That ain't a damn thing.
: You've reached Judd, you know what to do.
All right, everybody stand back, we're ready to get started.
Okay, Marty, knock it down.
Screw it.
Hey, what you doin'? - Oh, not this one again.
Call the cops.
- You got it.
Stand down, Marty.
Stand down.
Look, lady, the cops are already on their way, all right? We don't want any trouble.
The thing is, trouble, is exactly why I came.
What's up, people? Hey, it's your girl, Firefox, coming to you live from the 126.
I know most of you know that my team has tried everything to save this firehouse.
But today is D-Day, so I'm not just going to the wall, I'm chaining myself to it.
Oh, yeah, that's great.
That's just great.
We have a GoFundMe page.
- Yeah, hello.
- I hope you'll check out.
I know that 4.
6 million is asking for a lot but that's what the city says they need to reopen the best little firehouse in Texas.
Where it's just started snowing.
- MAN 1: Is it snowing? - MAN 2: It doesn't snow in Austin.
MAN 3: Yeah, look it up.
So maybe that's a sign.
Everybody, pack it up.
Boss says we're shutting down till the weather clears.
Looks like you got a reprieve.
Hope it's worth going to jail.
Hey, Carlos.
Hey, Marjan.
CARLOS: You better hope that they don't press charges, chica.
For what? Exercising my right to peacefully assemble? Let 'em try.
I don't recall the right to pour sugar in a bulldozer's gas tank or cut a crane's hydraulic lines.
Those were totally baseless accusations.
That set them back two weeks.
And I just bought us at least another 24 hours, which is plenty of time to figure out the next move.
Marj there is no next move.
Look, everyone's devastated about the 126 closing its doors.
Really? 'Cause they have a funny way of showing it.
I didn't see anyone else out there, did you? That's because everyone's accepted the reality of the situation.
Brutal as it is.
Are you talking about the 126 or are you talking about you and a certain paramedic? It's important to know when a thing is over.
When to move on.
- Give up, you mean.
We used to be a family.
Call it a slightly estranged family.
Some more estranged than others.
Well, life on the farm is kinda laid back Ain't much an old country boy Like me can't hack It's early to rise Early in the sack I thank God I'm a country boy Well, a simple kinda life never did me no harm A raisin' me a family and workin' on the farm My days are all filled with an easy country charm - WOMAN: Nice form - [BARKS.]
Thank you.
for a city slicker.
I think Austin's a slick enough city.
Yeah, well, you're in the Hill Country, Folks around here don't use as much hair product.
And have substantially less volume, I'd reckon.
You'd reckon correct.
I'm Sadie.
I live in the cabin over yonder.
Did you just say "yonder"? - I did.
How long you been "yonder"? I've been renting this for about a month and a half.
Well, since my divorce was finalized three days ago.
Ah, sorry to hear it.
Been there.
Twice, in fact.
Thanks, but it was for the best.
Yeah, no, I know the feeling.
Uh, I'm Owen by the way, and the big dog is Buttercup.
You're, uh, pretty handy with a blade there, Owen.
Where'd you learn to swing an ax like that? Eh, I used one occasionally in a former life.
SADIE: And what do you do in your current one? Now that you retired from being an ax murderer? Well, um, I came up here to kinda figure that out, and yet Wherever you go, there you are.
Well, I was gonna say that I'll never fully retire from being an ax murderer.
You take care, Owen.
They're saying it's gonna get pretty frosty.
Well, listen, that's nothing.
You want cold, you should try walking down 32nd Street in February.
I'll be fine, but thank you.
It's not just you I'm worried about.
This is Texas.
When the snow hits here, people tend to lose their minds.
Roger that.
BRODY: Texas, baby! - [DEVIN EXCLAIMS.]
Y'all are witnessing a legend.
Brody, how you feeling, bro? First man to ski South Lamar, baby, how do you think I'm feeling? I'm shreddin' Texas, baby! [WHOOPING.]
- Ha, ha! - Yo, what's this clown doin', man? - [HONKS HORN.]
- Hey, yo, man, go around! Yo, share the road, bro, before somebody gets hurt! - Yo, what the hell, man? - DEVIN: Come on! Yo, man, go around! What's your problem, dude? Dev, get this dick's license! [HORN BLARES.]
We got you on camera, bitch! DEVIN: Brody! [BEEPS, TRILLS.]
- Hang on, bro, just hang on.
- TOMMY: Stop! Stop! Don't move it.
Okay, but that thing weighs a ton.
TK, check his airways and his breathing.
Nancy, hook him up to the LIFEPAK.
- What's his name? - Brody.
He's my best friend.
Brody, this is TK and Nancy.
They're gonna check you out, okay? Hey, Brody, do you feel any pain? [WEAKLY.]
: It's so cold.
He's hypotensive and tachycardic.
Probably from all the blood loss.
He needs an OR now.
No, we move him now and the weight from this ice is gonna take his head off.
MAN: I don't care if you're freezing your nuts off, it only benefits the gene pool.
Let's move it, grunts! Oh, good.
This guy.
Captain, I'm Captain Tommy Vega.
I know who you are.
I was hoping you can do us a favor.
For the paramedics who saved me from choking to death on dust and my own bile? Uh, yeah.
Name it.
We gotta cut the ice before we can travel him, but it needs a delicate touch.
It probably nicked the carotid.
It wiggles an inch Okay, I'll put my best guy on it.
Chavez! What's up squad? It's been a minute.
Good to see you, Mateo.
Listen, Brody, this is gonna be uncomfortable, but I need you to stay as still as possible, okay? I need you to cut a single arc, leaving a foot of ice on either side of the wound.
The most important thing is keep it steady, keep it smooth.
No problem.
Smooth is how I do.
Ah! All right, let's get him on the gurney.
Nice work, Mateo.
Hey, look at our little probie all grown up.
Shut up.
Good seeing you guys.
Good to see you too.
GUARD: Marwani.
You're sprung.
One cell phone, one tube raspberry lip gloss, one can tactical pepper spray, jewelry.
- Sign here.
- Thanks.
Who bailed me out? Firefighter.
You should put me back in the cell.
You know, Marwani, a thank you might not go amiss here.
Instead of bailing you out, I could've suspended you, even fired you.
So why don't you? If you fire me, the story might get more traction.
Hashtag Firefox is back up to seven million followers.
Raking the AFD over the coals on social media every day, that's not helping anybody.
Is this you ordering me to shut up? - BILLY: No.
- Okay.
It's me asking for your help.
To build a department up instead of tearing it down.
Why would I help you? It wasn't enough for you to take our house, now you have to railroad our Cap too? What do you mean railroad your Cap? He satisfied every term of his suspension for punching you in the face.
He's jumped through hoops, community service, anger management, but nothing he does is ever enough to satisfy the department.
Is that why you think Strand hasn't been reinstated, hmm? I'm afraid he's not being totally honest with you.
There is one more hoop that he hasn't jumped through.
I'm gonna AirDrop you his continued contract of employment, you can see for yourself.
BILLY: Oh, hey, Marwani, could you get Judd to call me 'cause I got somethin' I gotta tell him, and he just won't return my calls.
Yeah, well, why don't you take a hint? [CELL PHONE CHIMES.]
Oh, hell no.
TK, Radio West Park.
Tell 'em to have a vascular surgeon standing by and try not to hit any potholes on the way.
- Copy that, Cap.
- Hard part's over.
We're taking you to the best trauma center in Texas.
They'll fix you right up.
: Can you text my, my girl? Sure.
Okay, what's the number? Five one two Brody? - Brody, can you hear me? - [MONITOR BEEPING RAPIDLY.]
BP's 75 over 45.
He's in free fall.
I'm pushing fluids.
Stop! His carotid's perforated.
The ice must have been acting as a shield, now his blood's melting it.
NANCY: 53 over 36! He's gonna bleed out - if we don't clamp the carotid.
- No, we can't clamp the carotid.
It'll stop the blood flow to his brain.
So what do we do? We have to make our own shield.
Pull over! - What? - Pull over! Nancy, grab the puke bucket.
Scoop up as much as you can.
We'll use it to pack the wound.
Cap, he's circling the drain! [RAPID BEEPING.]
TOMMY: Go! Kill the heat.
Roll down the windows.
Pack it on tight.
That's it, that's good.
BP? NANCY: Barely registering.
TOMMY: All right.
Bolus the fluids.
And let's pray it holds.
81 over 50.
90 over 62.
It's working.
Hey, Brody.
Welcome back.
Okay, listen up.
Weather service is saying it might dump another two feet on us.
The grid is already going down for the count, so folks are gonna start losing power and when they do, they're gonna get cold.
Now we have six warming centers on their feet and more to come.
And if you get callers making firewood out of their furniture, remind them to remove their upholstery first.
That's right, just keep pouring warm water, okay, and it should come unstuck.
You're very welcome, sweetheart.
9-1-1, what's your emergency? MARK [OVER PHONE.]
: I had a break-in at my store.
Pike's Furniture Warehouse.
I think they're still inside! GRACE: Okay, sir, listen, I need you to stay a safe distance away from the store until the police officer arrives.
I'm sending one your way right now.
I came by to turn off all the outside faucets, you know, with the freeze, and I saw this.
CARLOS: Have you been inside at all? No, I tried going in there, but I heard the looters talking in there, so I turned around right quick.
CARLOS: Looters don't usually hit furniture stores.
Any idea how many people are in there? MARK: More than one.
Have you seen anybody come out? No.
Whoever they are, they're still in there.
This is Reyes at the 10-62, suspects still on scene.
Requesting backup.
Okay, copy that, but please be advised nearest backup is 12 minutes out.
CARLOS: 10-4.
This is Austin PD! Show yourself.
APD, let me see your hands.
- Let me see your hands.
- MAN: Behind you.
- Whoa, don't shoot! - Put your hands up, sir.
They're just pillows, man, we weren't stealing.
So much for my long winter's nap.
CARLOS: Put your hands up.
MAJOR GARRETT: If I was gonna shoot you, I'd have done it by now, son.
Major Garrett was a door gunner.
So you can lower your peashooter.
We're just trying to stay warm.
Thank you for your service, but I need you to stand up.
Sir, I know it's cold outside Guess you're gonna have to either arrest us or leave us be.
Hey, man.
Somebody's coming in hot.
JUDD: Hey.
I'm sorry I didn't take your call this morning.
Guess you was there when the ball swung.
There was no ball swinging.
Well, actually maybe a little from Deputy Chief, but the building is still standing.
At least until the weather clears.
No kiddin'.
I don't know how I feel about that.
It's like Tom Petty said, waiting is the hardest part.
Look, so you know how everyone just gave up once Captain Strand abandoned us? Hey, to be fair, he didn't abandon us.
They wouldn't reinstate him.
That's not true, actually.
He could have been reinstated the next day, but he chose not to.
Check this out.
"I, Captain Owen Strand humbly apologize "to Deputy Chief William Tyson for my unprovoked, cowardly attack.
" Where'd you get that? Your old pal Billy, who would love a catch-up, by the way.
Yeah, he can go to hell.
I know, he sucks, but the headline here is that all Captain Strand has to do to be fully reinstated is sign it.
You mean all he has to do is bend the knee.
Bend the knee? What are you, Jaime Lannister? Hey, I wouldn't apologize to that snake neither.
'Cause at the end of the day, a man is gotta be able to look at himself in the mirror.
Or in Captain Strand's case, every hour on the hour.
This isn't funny! If he'd just sucked up his pride, he could have been helping to fight for the 126.
Marjan, that fight's been over for months now.
It's only been over because we lost Cap.
He walked away, we lost our leader and then we lost each other.
PAUL: Where are you going? MARJAN: To get him back.
Hey, you got a shift.
Well, tell Captain Andrews I'm taking a snow day.
We get snow days now? I don't know, but I'll tell him.
CARLOS: See, Major? As promised.
It's warm, it's clean, and they've got plenty of space.
So how are we feeling? Like a rat being put in a cage.
Well, at least you're a rat who can feel his face again.
GREG: Come right on in.
First thing we tell all our guests is Jesus loves you.
Good for him.
This is Major Garrett and Sergeant Vincent Thompson.
We don't need your charity, just somewhere to ride out the storm.
You've come to the right place.
Um, this is Lindsey, one of our volunteers.
Why don't you find a spot for our new friends? Welcome to, um, Providence Pasture.
What? Speak up, child.
Welcome to Providence Pasture.
I'll show you around.
You guys be good now.
Yeah, we will, Officer Reyes.
MAJOR GARRETT: No promises.
- Nice fellas.
- Yeah.
They were in a bad way.
You're really doing God's work here.
"Give to him that asks of you.
" The Sermon on the Mount.
Trust me, they did not ask to come here.
- Can somebody get a - Yeah, I got it, got it.
Let's move this out of the way.
Careful with, with the glass.
Got it? I got it, I got it, I got it.
Go ahead.
Well, no, I didn't put no chains on her tires because, uh, she got out of there too quick.
And you just let her go? You really think anybody can stop Marjan from doin' something she's set to doing? I just don't like the idea of her driving up into the Hill Country in this weather, Judd.
The weather wasn't like this when she left.
Gonna be a wasted trip, though.
There ain't no way that Owen's gonna sign no apology letter to Billy.
: I mean, he did strike the man, Judd.
: Yeah, he did, and he ain't sorry for it.
And he didn't even hit him that hard.
He knocked that man out cold.
He's still alive, ain't he? Okay, you the worst, Judd.
I am that.
Anyway, how are my girls doin'? Y'all staying toasty? You're the one out there in a blizzard.
We just in here enjoying a nice cup of chamomile.
Chamomile? What, you got a sore throat or something? No, my throat is fine, Judd.
JUDD: Well, are you feeling queasy? I mean, the only time you drink that stuff is when you're feeling under the weather GRACE: Mm-hmm.
Or when the call center is out of English breakfast.
We're fine, I promise you.
Grace, just take care of yourself.
- Will ya? Hey, Judd, I'm losing you.
- What'd you say? - Babe.
Hel Judd, say it again.
Grace, if you can hear me, I love you, okay? Have a [GARBLED CHATTER.]
Judd, you there still? [STATIC OVER PHONE.]
- Ugh.
You expecting someone? One second! - Hey, Cap.
- Marwani? Whoo! Sure ain't Miami.
OWEN: No, it's not.
: Hi! Hi, Buttercup.
Come here.
Come here! Oh, my goodness, I missed you.
Yes, I did.
Oh, you're so nice and warm.
Even your clutter looks art-directed.
Ooh, is that coffee? It's twig-spresso.
I mean, the twigs are the fuel, but it's-it's basically coffee.
So why are you here? Did something happen? [MARJAN SIGHS.]
MARJAN: As a matter of fact, no, nothing happened, which is exactly why I'm here.
Okay? Do you even know what day it is? - Monday.
- It's D-Day.
As in Demolition Day.
Well, I guess I missed the livestream.
Yeah, I guess you did.
The building's still standing, Cap.
This little freeze we're experiencing, it stopped the wrecking ball cold, literally.
And? What do you mean "and"? The universe intervened.
It granted us a stay of execution.
The universe did that? Yes, it's speaking to us and we need to listen.
The universe doesn't speak.
It's indifferent.
You're wrong.
It's a cold snap, Marwani.
The snow will melt and that building will come down.
You just need to accept that we've done absolutely everything we can.
Really? Everything? - Yeah.
- Hmm.
OWEN: What's that? It's your AFD apology letter to Billy Tyson.
Where'd you get that? Billy.
You-you could've signed this months ago and been reinstated, why didn't you? Because it'd be a lie.
I'm not sorry I hit him.
Nobody is.
That's not the point.
You let your pride get in the way of the thing that matters most, putting our house back together.
We can't do it without you.
We need our captain back.
Marwani, even if I sign that letter, that doesn't put the 126 back together.
Even if I gave in to that Rasputin in a man-bun, there's nothing to be the captain of.
126 is dead and buried, regardless of what I do.
We've brought people back from the dead.
How can you just give up? 'Cause I'm tired? Tired of playing the hero.
'Cause at the end of the day, what does it get you other than haters? People like Billy are looking to just take you down any way that they can.
I've learned my lesson, and I haven't given up.
I've given in to reality.
And that's something you should consider.
We can't save the world, because you want to know why? The world doesn't want to be saved.
So instead of trying to fight it I'm actually gonna try to enjoy it for the first time.
Because it's gonna keep turning no matter what I do.
So that's it.
Yeah, I think so.
All right.
I'll give you some twig-spresso.
No, I'm fine, thanks.
I'll stop at an actual Starbucks on the way home.
You sure you don't want to stay until the storm passes? I'll be fine.
Look, I know youthink you can hide up here behind your beard and you're strategically placed clutter, but the universe knows where you are and it knows who you are.
Even if you've forgotten.
Oh, hush you.
- Thanks again, Officer Reyes.
- My pleasure.
MAJOR GARRETT: Get me out of here.
Get me out.
Get me out, Sergeant Thompson! - That's an order.
- Relax.
- Shh.
- Get me out.
It's gonna be all right.
You just need to relax, Major.
MAJOR GARRETT: That's an order.
SERGEANT THOMPSON: Please just relax.
- I don't wanna be here.
- I know.
- Hey, hey.
- MAJOR GARRETT: I want out.
- Is he okay? - MAJOR GARRETT: Hell, no.
I don't like walls.
I hate walls.
He was a POW for two years.
He doesn't like closed spaces.
- MAJOR GARRETT: Give me my chair.
- Hey, Major.
Hey, hey, hey.
You can't go outside right now.
Okay? It's not safe.
You and Sergeant Thompson are safer with a roof [RUMBLING.]
Everybody, get out of the building.
Everybody get out the building right now! Right now! Right now! Go, go, go! - [SHOUTING ORDERS.]
- Hey, can you grab him? - Yeah.
Amazing, isn't it? What, that the guy somehow managed to get blood into the microbial scrub bin? I mean, we're gonna have to throw all these out too.
That dude was basically decapitated and is going to make a full recovery.
Is kinda awesome the power of modern medicine.
And a puke bucket filled with snow.
It's funny how it works, though, isn't it? In the rig, as in life once you pinpoint what the problem is, you're already halfway to solving it.
I guess.
But, you know, sometimes the problem isn't as simple as a perforated carotid or a virtual decapitation.
But that's why we roll as a team, right? When we put our heads together, there's no mess we can't clean up.
I'm not telling you why Carlos and I broke up, Nancy.
Why are you being so annoying about this? Why are you so obsessed about this? Because I love you guys together.
Everyone loves you guys together.
Also, the mystery is killing me.
You've you've got a little schmutz there.
You suck.
Olsen, move the civilians back and start giving first aid to anybody who needs it.
I'm Officer Carlos Reyes.
I was in the gym when it caved in.
Guess the roof couldn't bear the weight of the snow.
Yeah, we don't build 'em for it in Texas, but I bet it took that gas line out when it dropped.
Any idea how many are still inside? None, thank God.
Everyone we checked in is accounted for.
Twenty-five souls.
Captain, wind chill's at four below.
We don't get these people out of the weather soon, we're gonna need 25 hospital beds.
JUDD: I just talked to the warming centers, they're filled up.
So we got nowhere to transport 'em to 'cause the shelter said they're not open for another four hours.
Four hours? We have elderly here! I think I know a place that's ready now.
- You said now? - Yeah.
Right now.
- Hey Paul.
- What's up buddy.
Bye, Paul.
Y'all gear up.
Find a hydrant that ain't froze over.
This way folks.
Welcome, everybody.
Oh, no feet on the couches please.
Thanks again.
It's very generous of you to open up your store like this.
Well, it is the right thing to do.
Hey buddy.
- Is the right thing to do.
- Yes it is.
TOMMY: Where can we setup triage? Oh, I called in cuts and bruises.
Um, didn't know dispatch was sending in private units.
City's spread thin today.
Well, uh, you could, uh, just There might be some space in the, in the, in the Just use the dining room display.
- Yep.
- Thank you.
That would be great.
So how many people are here? Uh, 25 area residents.
Three church volunteers Are you thinking all green tags? Carlos.
You good? Somebody's missing.
You guys ever see anything like this? No, man, never.
Not in 37 years on the job.
Hey, we see them all the time in Chicago.
Called 'em ice palaces.
JUDD: Yeah, that makes sense.
Hey, hey, hey.
It looks kinda like Elsa from Frozen, her palace.
Yo, man, you watched Frozen? 'Cause I got a daughter on the way.
- Somebody's still inside.
- Wait, what? A teenage volunteer, Lindsey Robertson.
No, they had a list.
No, she-she was the one keeping the list.
She didn't count herself.
How much water you think we put on that fire? Twenty-five hundred gallons, I reckon.
At 8.
35 pounds per gallon, that's like Ten tons of additional water weight hanging over that kid's head.
If we send a team in, could be looking at a secondary collapse any moment.
That assumes she survived the first collapse.
A sense of shock here at Providence Pasture Church, where a teenager is still trapped inside a collapsed gymnasium.
Firefighters are preparing a rescue effort, but with an estimated 20,000 pounds of ice enveloping the already unstable structure, risks to first responders are dire.
Two-member teams, thermal cams all around.
Now, Strickland, you scouted the double doors on the alpha side, right? Yeah, from what I can tell they're uncompromised, if we chop some of that ice off.
Hey, I use that circular saw and then we can just crib our way in.
We'll make entry from there, begin a slow, deliberate search through all discovered void spaces.
Don't wanna miss any signs of life.
Yeah, or signs the roof's crashing on your skull.
You feel it start to go, get outta there ASAP.
That's right.
Anybody doesn't feel confident going in, just speak up.
- No judgment.
- CARLOS: Sorry to interrupt.
These are Lindsey's parents, hoping for a word.
Of course, yeah.
We wanna say thank you for, um Oh God, please just save our little girl.
Okay, sir, we're gonna do everything we can, okay? I know you will.
- We should let them work.
- MAN: Yeah.
You can wait in my vehicle where it's warm.
Thank you.
PAUL: All right, let's go, boys.
Come on, let's go.
Lindsey! Lindsey, Austin FD! We're coming to get you! You getting anything on the FLIR? PAUL: Ugh! Not yet.
- Hold up.
We've gotta make this quicker! JUDD: You got any ideas? Yeah.
We should fan out.
Lindsey! Lindsey! It's a tight squeeze, Ryder.
Everybody be quiet, I think I heard something.
Lindsey, if you can't holler back, try banging on something.
Lindsey, is that you? [KNOCKING CONTINUES.]
Lindsey! Paul! How's that fur treatin' ya? The universe is sending us a message.
I didn't hear any message, did you? [GRUNTS.]
This is perfect.
Just where I wanna be.
I'll do you one better.
This is exactly where I'm supposed to be.
All right, it's cold.
Come on, let's go back inside.
Buttercup! [BARKING.]
Oh, Jesus.
Look Hey! Hey! Can you hear me? Hello? Can you tell me what happened? Are you in pain? Dejame en paz.
I'm sorry, I don't, I don't speak Spanish.
Are you in pain? Dejame en paz.
