    Well last weeks ending was pretty screwy so Tommy better not of done something dumb with his kid (or his brothers kid). Ouch that had to hurt with the car and the beating Tommy took! Was that Gina Gerchon at the end?

    Definitely a disfunctional family! What a fight.

    Does this mean no more ghosts? Did they "kill" themselves in his mind so they won't come back?

    I can't believe that after rescuing a bunch of people that the responding firefighter was a jerk to him. He should have at least gave him kudos for the rescues.

    The Chief's daughter is a nutjob....but it looks like it will lead to us seeing more Gina Gershon....mmmm! ;)

    Pretty good episode.....glad they didn't have him kill the baby...that would have ended the show for us....no way we could watch it after that......although just the fact that he thought about it is sickening. I guess that maybe that was the catalyst to drive the ghosts away though, so it might put him on a better path.

    Also, that's Amy Sedaris as the chief's daughter.

    This show better pick up, pacing is way to slow for your 12 show season. I do believe janet is out of her post mortem depression. I thought probey was going to catch hell for not wearing his seat belt. "New Sean" was wearing his and walked away from the crash.

    The chief's daughter is a total nut job!

    Lou at the bar with his cousin.

    Tommy would have done the same thing if his crew was responding.

    Tommy's dream sequence was out there.

    This episode seemed very surreal. I thought most of it was going to turn out to be Tommy having started drinking again and most of it was his delusions.

    I'm an advid fan of Rescue Me since the beginning and haven't missed a single episode, so I'm not the type of person to be eager to knock the show.

    Maybe it's just me, but this season so far has been a little dull. I don't know if dull is the right word, maybe just not compelling. It's like something is missing. I don't know what. I miss the dynamic that the old chief brought to the storylines. There's a minor void with him gone.

    Tommy is drifting aimlessly through the series at this point. The back and forth with the wife has gotten tiresome. Sheila seems to just be drifiting around as well. There's always a half dozen storylines going on at any given time, so I don't mind that. But none of them are grabbing me right now. Things that were cool at first but that are now starting to annoy me are the firefighting scenes with the music played over the top of them, Tommy's "visions" of his cousin and brother, and Lou's miraculous penchant for being able to get younger, smoking hot women to somehow date and sleep with an older, reasonably unattractive fat guy.

    I still won't miss an episode, but I'm not feeling it like I was the first couple of seasons.

    I don't think anyone gets over postmortem depression :D
    (I believe you meant postpartum)

    Hm... I would think they'd get over it pretty quickly with the 10,000 virgins awaiting them.

    Couldn't agree more. I have to force myself to watch the show now and that bums me out because I once loved it!

    Something is definitely different this year. I can't even put my finger on it, but the tone is off or something. The episodes just don't seem to flow right. They seem a little disjointed.

    I'm still gonna watch as I'm invested in the characters. But I have to say that if I had started watching this year, I don't know if I'd stick with it.

    I agree that this season hasn't been very compelling. Still better than most stuff out there but not up to Rescue Me standards.

    Was one of the ghosts playing cards at the kitchen table supposed to be Jerry? He kinda looked like him from the back but they never got close enough to tell (on purpose, I'm guessing).

    I am guessing that it was supposed to be him. But it didn't really look like him. Maybe it was a doll?

    I too agree that this season seems "off" in some form or another. Don't know why, but I am not enjoying it as much as the first 3 seasons.

    That was Lou's cousin at the bar? I didn't even pay attention. I just wrote it off as some drunk guy. Funny how he stopped Lou's beer grab.

    I don't think that Tommy's ghosts are gone. We might have just seen him have a psychotic breakdown. Especially given the way he reacted to it. And he didn't even care that his Caddy got towed. (BTW, why did it get towed?)
