[SALAZAR] The cardiac arrest
was brought on by smoke inhalation.

Paramedics on the scene
immediately began resuscitation.

They got his heart restarted
on the way here.

How long was it stopped?

[SALAZAR] Almost 14 minutes.

What does that mean?

[SALAZAR] It's too soon to tell.

We won't know the extent of the damage,

if any, until he wakes up.

But he will wake up?

Well, right now, his body is recovering

from a major traumatic event.

We are doing what we can
to help facilitate that.

That's not an answer, Doctor.

That's because I don't have one.

Sergeant Grant, I assume you're aware

of an advance directive
your husband has on file

here at the hospital?

Yes. We both do.

[SALAZAR] So, we are
both aware of his wishes

should this condition become prolonged.

I mean, it's not a discussion

that we need to have right this minute,

but if there are other family members

that need to be informed,

you might want to do that now.

Christopher, come on.
We need to talk about this.

Go away!

- [SOFTLY] Come on, come on.

- Thanks for coming.
- [SIGHS] So, what happened?


I messed up.

So, last night,

Marisol took Chris
and her nephew to the movies,

and while she was gone, Kim came by.

- You had her over here?
- After you and I talked,

I brought her here to come clean,

to tell her what
she thought was happening

between us wasn't really happening.

Okay, so...

h-how did that go?

About as well as you'd expect.

I thought that was it.

Then she came back while Chris
was out with Marisol...

And what wasn't happening
between you two

ended up happening.


she didn't just look like Shannon,

she was Shannon.

Even saying it out loud, it's...
I mean...

it's hard for me to explain.

She was trying to be kind, but then,

Marisol walked in with Christopher.

Oh, Eddie.

And, at first,

he thought his mom had come back.

I guess I did, too.

What did you say?

I mean, he's 13, he's not five.

He figured it out.

After Marisol left, he locked himself

in his room,

- and he hasn't talked to me since.
- Okay, okay.

I'm-I'm here. What can I do?

[SIGHS] What you always do.

Just talk to him.

Uh, I, uh, I-I don't know
how to explain this.

I-I don't need you
to explain it to him, I just...

I need you to check in on him.

I'm worried.

He won't come out.

He can't keep you out of his room.

I don't want to break down
the door, Buck.

I want him to open it.

Sure, I-I-I get that,

- um, b-but I'm just saying...



Not a chance.

[EDDIE] Mom? Dad?

What are you doing here?

Christopher called us.

[SOCIAL WORKER] Uh, sir, I understand,

but I do not have that
information in front of me.

Y-You're gonna have to call
the county office.

Can I help you?

Hi. I'm here to visit Mara Driskell.

Are you family?


You can sign in.
Third door on the right.

Okay, um...

I will do some digging on my end
and then I'll get back to you.


Got it.

[CHUCKLES] Sweetheart,
it is so good to see you.

How you doing?

I know that was probably
a stupid question.

It's not like I'm doing great, either.

Denny and Karen really miss you, too.

The people who work here,
are they treating you okay?

I, uh, brought you something.

When I was your age,

I used to keep a journal, my diary.

I would write down all my secrets

and how I was feeling about things.

Somehow, putting it on paper

made whatever I was
going through feel less scary.

I thought it might help you, too.

You said we were a family.

You lied.

We're still a family.

That hasn't changed.
We're always gonna be a family.

So you're taking me home?

Excuse me, I checked,
you are not family.



Can't you just please
give us a few more minutes?


You are not supposed to be here.

Leave us alone!

Mara, it's okay.

Don't go.

I'm gonna see you again soon, okay?

I love you, Mara.



This is Hen.



Oh, God.

- Where were they taken?
- [EDDIE] So, he called you

at 2:00 in the morning,
and you jump on a plane

without letting me know you're coming?

He-he asked us not to, Eddie.

He probably thought you
would've told us not to come.

What did he tell you?

He said he came home and caught you

kissing his dead mother.

And, obviously, that's not true...

It's a little true.


[GASPS] Oh, God.

[SCOFFS] She-she-she
could be Shannon's twin.

Even in death, that woman
is making his life chaos.

I'm the only one
making my life chaos right now,

but that's done.

Uh, s-sorry to interrupt.

Uh... Cap's in the hospital.




How you doing?

They won't let me in there yet.

I pulled that from your locker
at the precinct.

There's some street clothes.

I didn't think you'd want
to sit here in a paper dress.

I appreciate that.

If there's anything else you need,

- tell me.
- Thank you, Elaine.

Have you spoken to the kids yet?

[ATHENA] Mm, no.

I haven't spoken to anyone.

Athena, we need talk about
who may have done this.

The arson inspector

is saying the point of origin
was near the bedroom.

He was in the house.

[MAYNARD] Who was?

Whoever did this, he had to know
the layout of the place, right?

Wait, do you have somebody
specifically in mind?


[SALAZAR] Sergeant Grant.

You can go on in.

Thank you, Doctor.


Can't think of anyone,
but I'll let you know if I do.

[CHIMNEY] First name is Bobby or Robert.

[EDDIE] Hen. Chim.

- What happened?
- We're not exactly sure.

Hen got a call from Ryerson at the 133.

They responded to a fire

at Bobby and Athena's house last night.

He said that Bobby went into
cardiac arrest on the scene.

Ay, Dios.

[BUCK] Uh, how is he now?

We've been trying to find out.

- They-they won't tell us anything.

- Guys.


I take it you've heard.

Sir, actually, we've heard very little.

All we know is that
Captain Nash is here.

Well, your captain is alive,
but his condition is critical

at the moment.

It'll be a while
before we know anything more.

What-what about his wife, Athena Grant?

He managed to get her to safety
before he took a turn.

She's with him now.

[ATHENA] I'm here, baby.

I hope you know that.

I love you, Bobby Nash.

And I'm sorry.


I did this.

I invited that man into our home

without once thinking

what that might do to him.

Or what he might do to you.

And I can't even say
that I don't understand it.

I understand it too well.

Because right now the only thing

holding me upright is rage.

So I promise you this:

I'm gonna be the one to get him.

No one else.

I'm gonna do that for us.

Because the last man
who came into our home

and tried to hurt our family

begged me to put him down.

This one...

he's not gonna have to beg.


I'm here visiting a patient. Bobby Nash.

Oh, you're one of his firefighters.

- Henrietta Wilson.
- A lot of people on this floor

are praying for your captain right now.

He's just in that room there.

Thank you.

I thought his wife was in here with him.

She was. S-She's not there?

I'm not sure where she went.

♪ ♪


Can I help you?

Gosh, you startled me.

I saw you get out of the taxi just now.

I tried to ring, but I think
your doorbell melted.

Polly Martin.
Four houses up on the left.

- The Martins?
- Athena Grant.

Oh, I'm aware.

I-I can't believe we've never met.

We've been in that house for 11 years.

I can't tell you how much comfort

it's given so many of us

to know there's a police sergeant
living in the neighborhood.

It's made us feel safer somehow.

Anyway, I am so sorry
this happened to you.

Did everyone get out okay?

Everyone got out.

Well, that's good.

Things, you can replace. People...

Anyway, if there's anything you need...

Can I borrow your car?

This Maddie Han.

Maddie, it's Athena.

Athena? Who's Polly Martin?

I had to borrow a civilian's phone.

The system
in my patrol car's glitching.

I was hoping you could help me
with an address.

Oh, sure.

I need the current residence
of an Amir Casey.

- A-M-I-R. C-A-S-E-Y.
- Just one second.


Hey, does your Amir Casey
work as a travel nurse?

- He does.
- Yeah, I've met him.

Impressive guy.
Is he in some kind of trouble?

We have reason to believe
that he may be in danger.

Wow, okay.

- Do you have an address?
- Yeah.

Thanks, Maddie.





She's not in her room.

Simpson said she didn't
have any injuries.

Did they discharge her?

Not according to admissions.

That doesn't make any sense.
Why would she leave Bobby?

[HEN] And why aren't the kids here?

- Something's not right.

[SIGHS] It's Maddie.

I haven't told her about all this yet.


So, this might not mean anything,

but I just got
the weirdest call from Athena.

- You spoke with Athena?
- Yeah,

- a few minutes ago.
- [CHIMNEY] Well, where is she?

- Well, I mean, she's on duty.
- No. [SIGHS]

She's not on duty, Maddie.

Bobby and Athena's house
burned down last night.

- What?
- I'm gonna put you on speaker.

I'm here with Hen.

We're all down
at Presbyterian right now,

and Bobby's on a ventilator.

Oh, my God. Is he gonna be okay?

- We don't know yet.
- Well, what happened?

They said it was arson.


That can't be why
she wanted his address.

Whose address?

Amir Casey.

We don't recognize that name.

He's a travel nurse who had been working

out of the hospital
you're at right now, actually.

I met him in the burn unit

when I was checking
on Catherine Morris.

The burn unit?

Yeah. He's acquainted with fire.


[HEN] Did he tell you
how he got these scars?

No, and I didn't ask.

Athena called here
looking for his home address.

- Did you give it to her?
- Yes,

I did.

Guys, ten years ago,
Amir Casey lived in Minnesota.


That can't be a coincidence.

Oh, it never is.

Maddie, did Athena say anything else?

Just that she had reason
to believe Amir was in danger.

And I think Athena

might be the danger.



♪ ♪

Sergeant Grant?

It's just Athena.

I'm off duty.

Looks like you're going somewhere.

Got a nursing gig in Bakersfield.

I start on Monday.

Not sure you're gonna make it.


Now, look, I don't know
what it is you think I've done...

You k*lled my husband.

What are you talking about?

He's in an ICU bed.

His heart gave out.

Inhaled too much smoke

pulling me out of the fire that you set.

Somebody set your house on fire?

You set my house on fire.

I wouldn't even know how to do that.

All you need is fuel,

oxygen, an ignition source.

It's not hard.

Well, I'll have to take
your word on that.

I should've known better.

The way you just appeared in our lives.

But Bobby was just so sure about you.

So sure you were a good man.

I missed all the warning signs.

Sergeant Grant,
I did not start that fire.

I saw that look on your face.

Just before you walked out of my house.

You hated my husband.

Not for what you lost,

but for what he had.

You don't know me.

I was you.

You carry her with you.

Everywhere you go.

But never on display.

She's not for somebody else's eyes.

She's just for you.

I had an Ayana, too.

I know what it's like
to hide in plain sight,

where the pain and the grief
is so deep and raw

that you can't even bear to touch it.

You can't even find a reason to go on.

Give that back.

I help people.

I save lives. She would be proud of me.

Maybe. But being a living
testament to a dead person

is a lonely existence.

It hardens you.

And who did you lose?

His name was Emmett.

He was k*lled
in a convenience store robbery.

It took me 30 years
to find the person who did it.

The one who stole my Emmett from me.

And then you k*lled him.

Well, you say we're alike.

I mean, I can't deny
that I-I see some similarities.

So, if you're so right about me,
then I must be right about you.

But you found this man.

This terrible man who ruined your life,

and you did
the only thing anyone would do.

You k*lled him, right?

- I thought about it.
- Yeah.

So did I.

You see, we're also alike
in this one other way, Athena.

Neither one of us are murderers.

You sure about that?


You say you didn't do it?

I'm gonna let you prove it.

I'm taking you in.


[AMIR] Uh, I think we have a problem.

You know them?

[AMIR] If I were to guess, I'd say

those are the men
who burned your house down.


[AMIR] Yeah, more or less.

I'll call it in.

What are you doing?

It's me they want.

- Hey. You looking for me?

[BUCK] Okay, so we think she's
gone after this guy on her own?

If she thinks that he's responsible
for what happened to Bobby,

it would be a very Athena thing to do.

Yeah, but she's in no state of
mind to confront him right now.

I'm gonna call her captain.

Maybe suggest that she send
a black-and-white

over to this guy's place,
make sure everything's okay.

- [NURSE] We need some assistance, please.

- [NURSE 2] Oh. Yeah.

Uh, I'll take it. Okay. All right.

What are you doing here?


Feel like I should be
asking you the same question.

I'm captain of the 118.


[GERRARD] Yes. There
was some concern downtown

about a leadership deficit
in this house.

I agreed to come back
and put things in order.

[QUIETLY] Is this some kind
of horrible prank?

They didn't say anything to you?

[GERRARD] Why would
they say anything to him?

He quit two weeks ago.

Or did you fail to mention that?

Lineup and inspection in ten.
