Rescue Me: Twilight

Rescue Me S03E11 Twilight

(S03E11) Only two episodes left this season and there's going to be a lot of fall-out. A heads up right now though, if you haven't seen the episode yet, you probably want to stop reading this because the episode it self was a lot of build-up but the end was well... whoa. All I can is say that something is wrong if Leary doesn't walk off stage with that Emmy in a couple weeks.

As I said, a lot of this episode was build-up from stuff that we already knew about. Tommy and Sheila are still looking into moving in together. Sheila even bought the house. Franco finally made a deal with Richie about seeing his sister. It was actually a really good scene. Franco showed the guy some respect and it paid off. Why was the probie still around though? Didn't he transfer for good in last week's episode?

Anywho, moving on. Sean and Maggie got banned from a church and Sean was pretty angry because it was Maggie's fault. So he broke up with her. Now that I didn't see coming. The whole thing with Tommy's father was good but it was total filler. I'm glad he moved in with Lou's Uncle Red though. Red was a great character in that other episode. Oh and speaking of Lou, he slept with a nun. But that seems about par for him right now as he continues to reinvent his life.

So that stuff was the whole episode but the last few minutes was where it all culminated. First we had Jerry. He's still seeing the nurse from his wife's home. They finally got around to having sex, and between all the physical activity and the Viagras he popped, Jerry had a heart attack. Even worse, Carline (I think that was her name), wouldn't call 911 because she's an illegal. So she just left Jerry on the floor. What a horrible thing to do.

Then there was Johnny. No sense in beating around the bush. He was on a stake-out with his partner and Johnny took three bullets in the back. He's dead. I can only imagine how this will play out. It'll certainly force Janet back in Tommy's direction and that will mess up his thing with Sheila and the new house. It's going to get messy.

Best Quotes:

Lou (commenting on how nail salons are everywhere): "Christ, you go to the movies, take a piss, come back, Korean nail salon!"

Carline (to Jerry): "You know for a man that looks like a garden gnome, you got a lot of demands."

Can anyone tell me what kind of sunglasses Dennis Leary is wearing in Rescue Me?

WTH? There was NO emotion whatsoever in Johnny's death. He's gone, too bad, Tommy & Janet are back together and a new mystery sister steps in to take Johnny's place. What is up with that? There was no mention of the baby, no grief, no nothing. It was crap. And Maggie marrying Sean at the gravesite? Man, this show jumped the shark with this episode.

Incredible show! it never fails to surprise and the plotline is NEVER predictable. The real link between the characters is their humanity. We can all identify with someone in all the characters. If we deny that, then we are hopeless liars. GREAT show.! Would love to get it on DVD.

OK Enough of the bitching about the rape. If you don't get it then STOP WATCHING THE SHOW!!!! Tommy and Janet even though they deserve each other for the way they always hurt one another will think nothing of what they do to the other. Rape to us, Yes, but to them NO! So stop whining! This show was never for those with weak hearts.

Franco daughter Keela or whatever her name is was taken by the rich woman and Franco can do nothing about it or else he will end up in jail for kidnapping her in the first place. That story line is up in the air until the rich bitch brings her back to NYC which will happen knowing how this show operates.

Johnny dies and Janet demands that Tommy is a father to her devil child. Wish it isn't going to happen but it will because things with Sheila are becoming too "smooth" or "nice" so we need Johnny to die to jinx things for Sheila. And yes she is going to become one mad psycho-bitch and make Tommy life a living hell. Anyone think that Sheila will do something as daring as maybe make Janet lose the baby?

The wheelchair guy at the beginning was really funny. Does anyone remember what he called the firemen when they were standing around trying to figure out how to get him out? Dickheads?

"Jafaking" is an illegal which is why she left him for dead. 911 will want to know who called and why she left involving cops, then INS.

Yeah, I can name one bad thing about the show, same as the other poster. C'mon...Franco's daughter is just up and gone and the story line is neatly tucked away? She's basically kidnapped and he goes on just chasing women again after being portrayed as the new nice guy daddy? Uh...no emotional damage there...no pursuit to make it right...they just let the lil girl go off to someone new? And the rape thing with Tommy and the ex still eats at me. Her character and the writers justified rape all too fast and easily. Regardless, still the best, most intense show on television.

I think Johnny dies which would lead Jannet back to Tommy and that would make Sheila go into psyco-mode again.. I dont think the chief dies but think he'll be pretty messed up so they have to get a new chief, which i think will be Lou.. Franco takes Lou's place, they get a new probie and so "probie" will stay too

I think the chief dies -- Lou takes his place (and ends up staying), Franco takes Lou's place. Maybe it's wishful thinking, but it would keep the gang together.

I also think Johnny dies.
