Trial date is May 17th.
Bail is set for $100,000.
Ready? Down.
Don't, don't, don't, don't.
You've been doom-scrolling all week.
I deserve to know what's being said about me.
Okay, well, none of it's true, so just Just stop babysitting me stop.
- I'm fine.
- Okay.
"I'm fine" yeah, as the inventor of "I'm fine", I'm just gonna stay, okay? A few more days, at least until you stop punching me in your sleep.
- I'm still doing that? - Yeah.
I mean, but do you have to sleep in my bed? And how else am I gonna know that you're still punching? Ah.
Everything hurts.
And that's cause you're holding a lot in your body.
Come on.
Come on.
I'm finally meeting with Chief Ross today.
Theo Theo still hasn't gotten his assignment either, right? What? Do you know something? - No, I know nothing.
- Yeah, and "I'm fine".
Okay, um yeah, he got assigned to 19.
He starts today.
Andy, I'm sure that's why Chief Ross called you in, though.
Right, because she always gives out assignments in person, at the start of a shift.
She's gonna suspend me.
I know it.
- I'm sorry, Andy.
- Ugh! - Can I have the phone back? - No.
- Please? - Never.
I just can't believe you're actually here.
I know.
It's nice, right? - Mm-hmm.
Mm? - Yeah.

- Yeah? - Yeah.
Gentlemen, may I present to you Lieutenant Theodore Ruiz of Station 19! - Yeah! Boo! - Boo! No, no, stop it! Vic, you do know that Theo's full name is not Theodore? - You sure? - Oh, yeah.
Little known fact, Theo is named after his abuela, Teodora.
Well, welcome to the team, Teodora.
- Thank you.
- Hey, hey, hey, hey.
No touching in the firehouse, you two.
You know we don't have to touch to make you uncomfortable, Trav.
See? No touching.
- No touching.
- I'm in hell.
No touching.
No touching.
No touching.
Hey, uh, hey.
Come here.
Seriously, though, it's clear that Seattle needs new leadership, someone to put this broken city back together.
This is real? All he needs now is a mustache he can twirl.
I understand this great city in a 360 way, and as your mayor, I'm going to clean up Seattle, and I'm going to lead us to a brighter, more prosperous, and safer future.
Okay, wait, so which is it? Is it a broken city or is it a great city? There is no way we live in a world where Herrera gets charged with murder and that guy is our mayor.
- Right.
- As your mayor - It's dark days.
- He can't win, right? - Dixon can't win.
- Well, the crowd seems to like him.
- Where are Bishop and Gibson? - Personal days.
I know firsthand how hard the police in this city - Both of them? - work to do just that, and I'm gonna make sure that they continue to serve - and protect - That's your father-in-law.
- Carina? - Huh? Carina, I need your help.
I'm burning the waffles.
Coming! - Oh.
Are you okay? - I'm okay.
I think I'm a little more nervous than I realized.
Oh, you're nervous.
I'm the one getting - turkey baster-ed.
- Yeah, but you've done this before, you're a doctor who literally specializes in it.
Yeah, but today, I'm the patient who's full of a month's worth of fertility drugs and the hormones from last night's trigger shot.
- Do you want to reschedule? - No, because otherwise, we're gonna have to wait for another whole month.
- I mean, it's okay.
It's okay.
No rush.
- No rush? Okay.
Then why did we expedite the genetic testing and the hormone shots and And and everything? - Because we are excited.
- Exactly.
So, we have to do this today.
We want to do this today, right? Because I'm tired of waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting for everything.
My green card appointment hasn't been set yet, but this we have control over.
This we want to do this today, you know? - Yeah.
- Nerves are not a bad thing.
Uh, I brought you some, uh, flowers.
Which, now that I think about it, is kind of just a weird metaphor for planting the seed.
- Should I? - Yes.
Come in.
See he's got you on spit-shine duty now.
It's Yeah.
For what it's worth, I don't blame you for reporting him.
Well, you might be the only one in this building.
Um, hey, when you went back in for the detectives, was it was it, like, weird? - Weird? - Well, I don't know.
I just I told them everything, but it still felt like they were, I don't know, reading my aura or, like, looking for lies or I mean You know, police interrogation is not supposed to feel like a spa day.
Yeah, but it's not supposed to feel like a witch hunt, either.
I mean, we're witnesses, not suspects.
Do you think they questioned Bishop the same way? Hmm? - Yeah.
- Yeah.
- Hey, how's Andy? - Oh, I'm getting the impression she doesn't love me sharing her bed anymore.
You know, I can remember that feeling very well.
I'm sorry, did you just Did you just make a self-deprecating joke? Is that what that was? You didn't think I had a sense of humor? No.
I-I didn't.
What? Okay, are we friends now? Is this how this is gonna be? - Okay.
- Hey, um, I'm glad Andy's not alone right now.
- Well, yeah.
I th - Can I help you? Yeah.
I'm looking for Andrea Herrera.
Okay, well, uh, sorry, if you're a reporter, - you need to go through FD.
- No.
- We can't - No, I'm not a reporter.
Uh, I'm just, uh I just want to talk to her.
Well, I'm I'm sorry, but she doesn't work here anymore.
Did she get transferred? Not yet, but we're still waiting on a reassignment.
- I see.
- Mm-hmm.
Do either of you know how I can get in touch with her? You know we can't share that information with the public.
I'm not the public.
I'm actually her mother.
Okay, we have to call Andy.
Do you think she can handle this right now? Do you think it's your job to make that decision? Okay, well, you call her, and I'll I'll talk to Zombie Mom.
Well, she did come back from the dead.
Oh, no, I got it, I got it.
I just cannot believe that came - out of your mouth.
- What? I'm I'm funny.
This place must have changed a lot since you were last here, huh? Yeah, Andy told me stories.
So you know the story? I do.
Or at least the parts that Andy knows.
I'm sure there's a lot more to it.
Pruitt would be devastated if he thought everyone here knew.
Not everyone.
You know, A-shift, we're close.
And Andy and I, we were - You dated.
- You can say.
- Hmm.
- Married.
Oh, wow.
I didn't even know she got married.
- Yeah, it was fast.
- Mm.
Right before Pruitt, um But we're not together anymore.
- So - I-I shouldn't have come.
I didn't even call my sister.
I-I saw the news stories, and I just got on a plane.
I'm sorry.
I-I should just never Elena.
Look, I-I can't tell you or Andy what to do, but she's been through a lot, and I'm not sure you being here will have the effect - you're hoping for.
- I'm not hoping for anything.
I just want to make sure that my baby girl is okay.
Aid car 19, Engine 19 I'm sorry.
You have to go.
and Ladder 19 requested to 632 Bellomy Road.
Listen, um, we'll call her, okay? We'll let her know you're here.
That's all I can do.
Thank you.
I appreciate it.
- Did you get a hold of her? - Voicemail.
Don't tell me you're habitually early like me.
- Our meeting's not for an hour.
- No, I'm just antsy, I guess.
- Well, come on up.
- Okay.
Uh, so, y-you like being chief? - Is that a goal of yours? - Oof.
My whole life, I've dreamed of becoming captain of 19, but it it always ends there.
It's like those dreams where you win the lottery, but then you wake up right after.
Yeah, but you win the lottery.
When you become captain of 19, you will have worked for it and earned it; certainly seems like you're on your way there.
Sully has good things to say.
Aquino, too.
Sullivan and my dad decided I wasn't ready to be captain of 19 because they thought I would be too emotional after a friend died.
I mean, how do you think this situation's going to be used against me? Well, no.
We won't let that happen.
Men have this way of really over concerning themselves with my life.
That's endemic.
In FD, in the military.
I mean, ask the cashier at the grocery store.
My entire career, two industries, multiple cities, and, uh, it's the same thing.
It's why it's taken me this long to get this far.
And And we're just fine with that? Well, you can waste your time figuring out how to fight the system.
"Fighting in the doorway" is what I call it; or know what you're dealing with and win from the inside.
Practicality moves the needle.
Idealism it just covers it in diamonds you'll probably never get to own.
We look at the world - very differently.
- Crap.
I was supposed to stop by 42 on the way in, - and I totally forgot.
- Well, w-what about our meeting? Well, you can ride over to 42 with me.
We'll talk in the car.
Come on.
Come on.
Yeah, I think Vic is staying at Andy's again.
You wanna hit the batting cages? No? Okay.
Strip club.
Those are the only options? And neither has food.
What is the point of anything we do when this stupid city in this absurd country in this broken world seems to be just fine with Dixons.
So this isn't about the little Dixon.
- This is about the big one.
- He could be the next mayor of Seattle.
- No chance.
- Giant chance.
Okay, there's always gonna be an audience for guys like Dixon.
Yeah, an audience, sure, but we keep giving them platforms and power and government positions.
- Well, we're not.
- But isn't Isn't not trying to stop it kind of like giving him a platform? So try and stop him.
How? I don't know, man.
I-I thought you were just bummed about breakup stuff.
Dispatch, this is incident command.
We got multiple units in this complex on fire, and I don't have enough manpower for search and rescue.
19 should be rolling up on you right now.
Deck gun, C side structure.
Get over there.
- Khalidi.
- Beckett.
Good to see you.
What's the status? We've secured the exterior.
19, I need you inside on evac as soon as my team gets access.
Nobody's been inside yet? No one's been on the C side of the structure.
19, search and rescue.
Suit up.
C side of the building.
Let's go.
Ba-dum! Oh, sorry.
I usually coach patients through this process, but I've never been on this side of things.
And we weren't sure if you needed porn.
I got my phone.
- Okay.
- This is nice! This is nice.
This is really good.
I'm gonna switch to my doctor's voice so we can move past this moment so, first, please sanitize your hands well.
And this is the specimen cup, in which you will put - Yeah, no, I got that.
- Okay, great.
We're gonna be in the next bedroom, uh, preparing The receptacle? - Yeah.
- No, yeah.
And I'll be turning on my wife so that her cervix opens up, uh, in fact.
See? Who needs porn? Sorry.
Well, that's not gonna help.
- Okay? - Okay.
Generally, I do this without an audience.
- Yes! - Right! Sorry.
We're gonna leave.
Have fun.
- Oh, wait, wait.
- No.
That - Yeah.
- Oh, yeah.
Oh, yeah.
Okay, we're out.
Have fun.
I'm not into weird porn, by the way.
Yeah, no, I'm just saying that I-I, um your baby Gonna be made with the most normal - Jack.
- Yeah.
Go ahead.
Whoa, whoa! The, uh the genetic testing app just alerted me.
- Is there a problem? - I don't think so.
It says I have a brother.
- Seattle Fire! Anyone in here? - Check the doors.
Hello? Anyone here? Hughes, to the left.
Anyone in here? Over here! We got one! Quick, quick, quick! Incident Command, this is Sullivan, one civilian found.
- Starting evac.
- Copy, Sullivan.
- Are there others? - We're looking now.
Muscle memory.
I just I turned it off so I would stop reading the comments - on the news stories.
- Never read the comments.
It's like first I survive the thing, and then I survive the aftermath of the thing, and now I have to survive the entire Internet's opinion - of the thing.
- Sounds like a lot.
I'm fine.
It's a lifetime of practice compartmentalizing.
You know, I don't know that this is something that you need to or that you really should compartmentalize.
No, I know.
I just it I just I really want to get back to work.
It's the thing that makes me feel the most me.
I get that.
Which is why I'm so anxious to hear about my re-assignment.
You're not re-assigning me, are you? It's the policy of the department that firefighters charged with a felony are to be suspended - It's not like I robbed a bank.
- No, you killed a man.
Accidental or not, it doesn't matter I-It wasn't accidental.
It was self-defense.
I hope you didn't tell the police that.
Ooh, Herrera, I know it's not right and it's not fair, but truthfully, I wouldn't put you back in the field right now, even if there was a way around all this red tape.
This case is too public, and you're still too raw.
I You know, Miller and Sullivan went to work the day after they were arrested.
They weren't arrested for manslaughter.
No, they were arrested for being Black and out of uniform.
Which is why you need to take a breath and realize that you are lucky, as a woman of color, to have this department looking out for you right now.
I am awaiting trial for manslaughter.
My name's all over local news next to the word "killer," and now you just fired me.
How is that looking out for me? And And the fact that my luck is being discussed in relation to my being a woman of color, by the way, kind of highlights how messed up the whole system is, no? I'm not firing you.
You are on temporary suspension pending the outcome of a trial.
Involved fire at Bellomy Road.
Requesting additional units.
88 and 19 on scene.
That means I have to make an appearance.
- You can just drop me right here.
- Oh, no, no, no, no.
We have a conversation to finish.
And it's a full, full match.
That means we have the same bio parents, right? So, that means - Mm.
- That's what that means, right? - That's what that means? - It is what that means.
That is what that means.
So, my parents had another kid, who What if we're twins, huh? Like, we got, like, separated at birth.
Like is that legal? That can't be legal, right? Jack.
Jack, Jack, Jack, Jack.
Slow down.
- Okay.
- Where does he live? There's no address.
It's just, uh Okay e-mail handle.
Uh, dadjokes2013.
- He's a dad.
- Oh.
- Whoa.
- He's a dad.
- So you're an uncle.
- No, no, not really.
I mean, - I don't know the guy, so - But But they sent you his e-mail.
That means that he checked the box saying he consents to be contacted.
- So, you could - No, okay, we're not doing this! Today.
We're not doing this today.
Okay, but you said I know what I said, but that was before I found out that he has a brother who is a father.
What does that have to do with anything? Well, you're distracted, and I am annoyed, and you, Maya, confabulations, you get another delay! - But I don't - Whoo! I don't want Sir, can you tell us if anyone else is inside? Sir, can you hear me? Travis, I think he's trying to tell us something.
- Door.
- Pablo, Pablo! Pablo.
Pablo, are you alright? What happened? Sir, please, I'm gonna need you to step aside.
I own this property.
What's going on? - What happened? - You tell us.
What is this place? I-It's, uh It's just property I haven't redeveloped yet.
Okay, why do you have a security guard in there, then? Because otherwise, we'd get squatters.
Oh, my God.
This is a nightmare.
Okay, so are there squatters in there? Okay, sir, I'm gonna ask you one last time.
Is there anybody else in that building? I told you, no! Now, are you gonna stand here interrogating me, or are you gonna go put out that fire? Losing containment of the fire on the north side of - the building.
- I'm so sorry.
- Hey, Captain.
- We need to complete search and evacuate before the fire spreads.
It looks like some kind of sweatshop in there.
Owner's being real dicey about who else could be inside.
Sir! I need you to back away from this area.
You're interfering with our care of this patient.
- I'm not doing - I need you to stand over there.
I'm not gonna ask you again.
Hey, hey.
What can you tell us? Is there anyone else inside that building? - He can't do anything to you.
- Pablo, you're not in trouble, but if you're holding anything back, you will be.
There's a hidden room on the second floor.
There are people in there.
Hughes, Montgomery, go.
Incident Command, this is Beckett, we have new intel.
We do have folks in the building.
Clyde, Wiggins, set up triage.
Sullivan, heads up, we're coming in looking for several civilians.
We've searched both levels.
It's clear.
- It's a hidden room.
- Montgomery, what's your 20? Pablo's gonna talk you to it.
We've reached the C-wall.
The stairs in the back that lead to the second floor That's where the room is.
Good work, 19.
Thank you, but that was all Montgomery.
Oh, you've gotta be kidding me.
Oh, my God.
Of course.
Of course.
I want to listen to your lungs for a second, is that okay? Okay.
Can you tell me your name? Okay.
You don't have to if you don't want to.
- Alright? - I'm sorry.
They don't mean to be rude.
We're just all very frightened.
It's okay.
- I'm Mai.
- Hi, Mai.
I'm Travis.
What's going to happen to us? Are we in trouble? No, no, no.
Mai, we are only here to help, okay? We are not gonna let anything happen to you.
- Are you sure we aren't in trouble? - I am sure.
Hey, Mai, when did you get this scar on your hand? Oh.
I'm just I'm just trying to understand so I can help you.
It was an accident.
About three years ago, back when I was new.
My hand slipped and got caught in the sewing machine.
- I'm sorry, did you see a doctor? - No, no, no.
They stitched it up inside.
- Inside? In there? - Yes.
We We don't go past the gates.
You don't go past the gates because you don't want to, or they won't let you? Mai, Mai, we are not gonna get you into trouble, okay? I promise, okay? They say we go outside, there will be trouble.
If the police got us, it would be much more than in here.
They have our passports.
We can't leave.
We thought it would be different when we came.
We didn't know it would be like this.
We This is wrong.
What they did to us is wrong.
We didn't know! We Carina, I'm I'm sorry.
I-I didn't mean for my thing - to take over - It didn't.
Uh, well, then, we don't need to reschedule.
Yeah, yeah.
We're all here.
We're all ready.
E-Except the person whose body it's happening to, which is me.
You're not ready? Ah! Is she gonna be like this the whole pregnancy? I don't hang out with pregnant people, I don't know.
I didn't even like you! Not one bit! And then And then you had to make me like you, and now we're maybe making a baby together! Okay, uh, Carina, I just don't understand why me having a brother changes things.
Why is that Why? Because you had no one, and now you do! Okay, so, uh, you're saying that you're doing this with me because I'm an orphan and don't have a family, basically? - No! No! - Yeah.
Oh, nothing's coming out right! Okay.
- I think I'm gonna go.
- No! I mean, you can, if you want to, but we still want to do this - if you do, right? Right? - If you do.
No, if you do.
How many times do I need to tell you that I do? Oh, now you do! Now that you are trying to avoid your work problems by throwing yourself into the baby making, now you do.
Oh, my God, Carina, when are you gonna finally trust me when I say I want to do this? When our child is going away to college? 'Cause you were not sure you wanted to have kids.
And you didn't know if you wanted to get married, but I'm not questioning every day if you're gonna leave me.
Yeah, g-guys, this isn't really helping my situation.
You go do your thing, we'll do ours, okay? Okay.
You guys sure that - Yes! - Yeah, cool.
Come on.
Oh, no, Herrera.
You can't get near the scene.
- You're still a civilian for now.
- I'm a trained paramedic.
- I'm sorry, Herrera.
- Uh - Hey.
Take over for me? - Montgomery.
Hey, Chief Ross, there's a situation you need to know about.
Chief Ross.
Nice to finally meet you.
- Michael Dixon.
- Yeah, I know who you are.
What's the situation Montgomery's worried about? Chief Ross, can we please have a minute? - Thank you, Beckett, I got it handled.
- Okay, that man has been trafficking those women, forcing them to work in his sweatshop.
- He confiscated their papers - Montgomery, thank you for your concern, but a proper investigation needs to be conducted - before jumping to conclusions.
- Jumping to conclusions? They are terrified, okay, he wasn't even gonna tell us they were inside.
He was gonna let them burn.
He's essentially holding them hostage, okay? - They are employees.
- Against their will.
They are indentured servants! And you're protecting them because he's your pal, and that's what you do.
Of course, those women deserve to tell their side of the story, the same as Mr.
Phillips deserves to tell his side.
- His side? His side? - If you're not gonna do anything to keep your men in check, then I'm gonna have to What are you gonna do? You gonna throw your unearned weight around, Dixon? You are a liar and a poison, and people are gonna find out about it! - Alright, alright! - Enough.
It's out of our hands now.
Walk away.
- Let's take a walk.
Come on.
- What What - What? We good? - No.
We're gonna handle this.
- Hey! Herrera, I said to stay in the car.
- I'm not a child, Chief.
I'm not the one you should be angry with.
- I'm on your side.
- You're on my side? I mean, you may talk like it, but deep down, you're just like all the rest of them what, so, I-I'm not mentally ready to come back to work after I fought off my attacker and saved my own ass? What, I still have work to do to earn a captain's seat, when I've been literally doing the job, and excelling at it, at that? What, so I can do the job when it's convenient for you, I just can't have it, right? - No, that's not what I'm saying.
- Ah, for the longest time, I I thought I thought it was me.
I thought something was wrong with me, that That things just kept not working out, and I think I just realized it's all of you, knowing, prescribing what's best for me.
It was the guy in the parking lot who decided he knew better when I said I didn't want things to go any further.
I-It It was my dad when the idea of seeing his daughter take over would have been too big of a sign for him to know that he was done.
I-It was Sullivan when when he wanted to keep me in my place because his life was a mess, and it's you trying to make this as slow and hard and painful as possible for me, because if you had to come up this way, the hard way, then so do I.
You have been through a trauma, alright? It's this whole screwed-up system.
Th The one that tells women of color that we should be grateful for even the smallest thing we're given.
Even if we've earned it.
Even if it's less than we deserve.
Even if it's an open secret that the expectations on us are higher and the rewards always lower, because we should know our place, right? Because we're lucky to get anything to begin with.
Hey, hey.
- I can give you a ride.
- I don't need your help.
Mai told them everything, and they're still taking them in? It's one jail to the next.
Nah, I'm sure they're not locking them up.
They're just gonna get their stories.
You sure about that? They're taking them to Seattle Pres to get checked out.
I called an immigration attorney I know to meet them there, take up their cause, work on getting them S-Visas - and financial compensation.
- Yeah, they still don't have to cart them off like that, Chief.
And the security guard Was he just gonna let those women die to save himself? It's not his fault.
He's just as scared about what was gonna happen to him as the women were.
- It's a circle of oppression.
- But the owner Is already being questioned by the police.
By the police, or his buddy, Dixon? You know he's gonna get away with this.
Look, we can't fix everything, but whenever it's in my purview, I do whatever I can.
Not enough is in our purview.
I mean, this was modern-day slavery in our city.
- If there wasn't a fire - Montgomery, look, it's horrendous and it's devastating, and it's not the first or the last time something like this is gonna happen.
You're right to be upset, but you can either put yourself in a position to do something about it or don't complain.
So, because I'm not a lieutenant, I don't get to have opinions about the world? No, you can.
It's just It's kinda pointless.
- We're stopping.
- No, no, no.
Keep going.
You are literally crying in my mouth.
I just don't want our baby to be made like this.
Well, technically, they can't be made like this.
I made a mess.
- Hmm? - I need to go apologize to Jack.
I was such a Hey Oh! - Oh.
- Oh, my God.
No, no, no.
No, no.
I-I - I can just go make more.
- I got it.
I got it.
- I got it.
- My brother is gone! And you're so infuriating, just like him, and I-I-I don't know what's happening to me.
- It's the hormones.
- I see this happening all the time, but I didn't think it was gonna happen to me, and it is.
No, it really is, babe.
I'm a I'm a hormonal wreck! You really are.
I don't want this disaster of a day to be how I make a family.
I kind of think it's the perfect way to make a family.
Eh, it kind of feels like we already are.
Okay, what about this new brother of yours? What if you fall in love with his kids and you decide that you want to move closer to them so you don't miss birthdays and soccer games and broken bones? Mm.
Even if that does happen, I'm still Uncle Jack to this kid, right? I'm not going anywhere.
Hey, let's do this next month, okay? When we've all had time to think this through and - No.
- No? Today is the day.
Today is perfect.
- Yeah? - Yes, yeah.
- Thank you.
- No, thank you.
Now, go make us another cup of sperm.
You got it.
One One cup of One cup of Jack seed, c Gross.
I just kinda didn't Yeah.
Are you sure? Are you sure? - Yeah.
- Okay.
We're on a scene.
Well, Montgomery did well today, right? It's unbelievable how somebody like him is rank and file, while Beckett Beckett is where Beckett is.
It's a flaw in the system, if you ask me.
I didn't.
Ask you.
Everything alright? I need you to stop talking to me about Beckett, or anyone else for that matter.
Moving forward, if I'd like information about any of your co-workers, I'll ask.
And if there's anything that needs to be flagged beyond that, there are formal ways to lodge concerns to the department, and it's not texting or calling me.
I'm capable of distinguishing the line between professional and personal.
Are you? Nice job today, everyone.
I called Sandra.
She gave me your address.
I'm sorry.
I tried calling your phone, but Uh, it's ready.
I got the spe stuff.
And, uh, I'm knocking, so no sudden movements.
I forgot we needed him.
- I can keep going.
- No, go get it.
I got the - Yeah.
Thank you.
- You're You're welcome.
Has she She's good? She's good to go? That's absolutely none of your business.
That is none of my business.
- Go play music.
- I'm gonna go play music loudly.
- You ready? - Here we go.
Here we go.
We saved 12 women today.
12 women and a security guard, and it still didn't feel like enough.
Because Dixon and the Dixons of the world just - It's okay.
I'm okay.
- Okay, dude, snake in the saw.
- What? - My mom was all about these animal stories when I was a kid to teach me stuff, alright? Here it is One night, a snake sneaks into a barn.
He's slithering around, he clips himself on a saw on the ground.
The snake freaks and instantly snaps at the saw, and cuts his mouth up, which makes him even more pissed.
So, then the snake wraps his body around the saw, thinking it'll suffocate it and kill it that way.
Of course that doesn't work.
He ends up killing himself, coiling around a blade.
- The snake's rage - Yeah, man, I got it, okay? Cool fable, bro you're saying that me carrying around all this anger for Dixon is only gonna end up hurting me.
I got it.
No, that's No, what I'm saying is, snapping at it's not gonna beat it.
Strangling it's not gonna beat it.
The only thing that can take down a saw is - Rust? - Right.
So now think of a realistic way to beat the thing that you're fighting.
Rain on Dixon, man.
What am I supposed to do? - Run against him? - Maybe.
You got, like, a million pizzas.
You got bigger things to worry about than me over-ordering pizza.
Any word on, uh, Andy's mom tracking her down? No.
Straight to voicemail.
So, Ruiz is trying to win you all over with pizza.
- Oh! - Yeah, well - It's working.
- Alright! Dig in, y'all.
- Alright, alright.
- Look at you.
- Voila.
- Oh, yes! Hold on.
Did everyone wash their hands? Alright, alright.
It happened to me, too.
In the academy.
We were friendly, but we didn't know each other.
Just smiles in the hall.
One day, I was waiting for a bus, and he offered me a ride.
It happened in his car.
One minute, he was asking me why I joined FD, and the next I'm glad you fought that man off.
I'm glad he's dead.
And I know I shouldn't say that, but I am.
Thank you.
For making sure that I knew how to defend myself.
Did you tell anyone at the department? There was nobody running FD that cared about stuff like this.
I told a few people in my work group, but they said that it would only make me look bad, make women in FD look bad.
It would only prove that maybe it wasn't a good idea integrating.
Um, as much as things have changed, they really haven't.
Wait, but I thought you had a female fire chief now.
Yeah, well, does that matter if she's just doing the job - like a man? - It does.
Now, look, maybe you don't see it, but things have changed.
- A lot.
- I mean, with these charges, I I might never be a firefighter again.
- There are other paths.
- Yeah, well, not for me.
Not Not Not if I'm in jail.
I mean, be being on leave, it feels like Like an admission of guilt, like like the Like the judge has already given a verdict.
Thanks for coming, Mami.
Thank you for letting me in.
Enough with the tears, okay? Come on.
You need to move.
Mami, I'm exhausted.
Come on.
What did I teach you, huh? The only way to get out of your head and back into your body - is - Is to dance.
That's right.
Come on.
