It’s been two months since a saw blade fell on Damien’s head while the crew was trying to save Lou from a pile of coffins. And by the start of the opening credits his fate will be known. But that’s not enough for the all mighty Tommy Gavin as he is now juggling two family lives, trying to be a father, husband and a confidant to Shelia. Mike and Sean finally get the memorial they have been fighting for, for Pat Maoney. And Lou receives a final warning from his doctor, but remember it’s Lou, so don’t take anything he says to be truthful… At least not yet.

Picking up right where last week left off, Mickey has shown up at the Gavin home after walking in on Tommy and Shelia. It isn’t long before Janet finds out and now Tommy must convince her that it’s over between him and Shelia. At the same time, Damien begins to seriously consider leaving the FDNY for good after a heart-to-heart with Mickey. To the point that he puts his papers in with Feinberg. Lou also gets some very depressing news about his health and his future as a fire fighter. And when the crew gets a call tonight, one of them won’t be making it back for the nightly ball busting session.

USA Networks is no slouch when it comes to the summer fun. And the networks newest series, the Doug Liman produced Covert Affairs, has officially been green-lit for a second season. This comes after six straight weeks of increasing ratings with the latest episode pulling in 5.36 million viewers. By comparison, the show’s lead in, White Collar, now in its second season, pulled in a smaller but still respectable 4.48 million viewers on its most recent episode. Covert Affairs follows the life of CIA rookie agent Annie Walker played by Piper Perabo. Think ALIAS the beginning, minus the sci-fi elements. Every week is an hour of pure escapist entertainment with some heart. If you haven’t seen the show yet, they you have no idea what you’re missing.

Upon arriving to a car crash, 62 truck comes upon the horrendous dead body of a young girl killed by a drunk driver. But this is no ordinary girl. This girl hits Tommy harder than any call ever before. Now Tommy will take it upon himself to cure Colleen before she meets the same fate. Animosity will also rise between Franco and Black Shawn, which will lead to a brutal end. Major developments: Actually, this episode is all set up. There are no major developments to speak of since we don’t know the outcomes of any of the actions taken yet. What worked: Two words, Holy Shit! That’s all I could think of when this episode was over. I mean, an alcohol baptism? How does someone in a writers room come up with something like that. It’s out there, even by Rescue Me standards. But that’s what made it so awesome. The execution of that scene was raw and emotional. Thank god that they didn’t give any humor (except The Godfather bit, but I’ll let that slide) to that scene at all. It was eerily perfect.
