The closing of the firehouse perturbs the locals, who stage a protest. Later, the boys respond to a school fire. And in the wake of Gavin's successful tough love approach to end his daughter's drinking problem, he and his wife try to reconcile over dinner.
This episode of RESCUE ME Forgiven was fluid, flowing from issue to problem to concern to fight to sex without much pause. It was a solid episode overall, not as good as some of the early season, but for an episode introducing new storylines it did well. We were taught several life lessons: A brother loves his brother by way of the fist. You don't hit on your friend's wife. And most importantly, Grease is a pretty highbrow movie. Also, I liked how the school fire scene flowed into an awkward apology scene; the transition from action tension to undercurrent tension was great.
A few things I didn't like:
Gavin's oldest daughter throws up so often, a stranger'd think she has bulimia. She ralphed three times in this episode, in rapid succession no less. Her drinking problems seem to be cured by her pavlovian respond to alcohol the aforementioned vomiting. We'll see if it sticks.
