Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Nell Turbody


Although they are still mourning the death of their son, Tommy and Janet are moving forward with their separation. Tommy is also still trying to maintain his sobriety while now bogged down with new responsibilities, which include caring for his father. Sean Garrity has struck up a secret relationship with Tommy's sister Maggie, and unfortunately for him, he's really starting to fall for her. Sheila finds condoms in her son Damian's room, and asks Tommy to have a conversation with him about it. In confronting Damian, Tommy learns that the teenager is carrying on an affair with one of his teachers, Mrs. Turbody. And when the city's no-smoking ban threatens the firehouse, the crew tries to make things interesting by starting a big wager on whether they can quit smoking. Written by WyattJones

Leary on Fire
1 June 2006 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This past week season opener "Devil" was among the very best episodes I have ever seen on "Rescue Me". I never thought this show would go past the first season but the more I watched it the more I interesting it got. The cast and the writing of this show is so well executed; you are laughing one minute and the next you are thrown into a dramatic scene and kind of grabs you in a way that you realize how much thought went into each episode. The last scene when Gavin is trying to bring the little girl back to life mixed with the music and the cuts of his wife leading to the bedroom scene was just amazing, they hit the ball right out of the ball park with this scene when the music stopped and Davin lighted up that cigarette and the sound effect of his puff of his smoke had such an impact on that scene and it really deserves to be remembered or added into the archives one of the best scenes in TV classics. I can only say that scene blew my mind and I kept watching it over and over. "Rescue Me" has proved to be a show of substance and a true contender among cable or TV shows of our time. Well done to all the cast, crew, writers, and Mr. Denis Leary who is really on FIRE.
