It has been almost seven years since we were first introduced to Tommy Gavin and the crew at Engine 99. What started out as a messed up firefighter greiving over the death of his best friend and cousin who died in 9-11, pretty much stayed the same.

Even when Tommy was successful in wrestling some of his demons, such as getting sober, something else would just crop up such as his daughter’s alcoholism. How will it all end? Will Tommy find redemption and peace?
