Boba gets a bad rap
because it basically has

no nutritional value,
but most people

just don’t appreciate the fact
that it’s fun to drink.

I mean, yeah, the tapioca’s

When I saw you
in that hospital bed,

not knowing
if you’d ever wake up again,

I had all these feelings--
strong feelings,

which is crazy because I still
barely know you.

(soft dramatic music)

I’m just confused.

What are we?
Are we even a "we"?

I have no idea, Carlos.

"I have no idea." Yeah.
That’s it.

Look, hey,
you think you’re confused?

I don’t even know
who I am anymore, all right?

I don’t know
if this is the life I want,

or I’m even in the right career
or in the right state.

I feel like I need
to figure that out first

-before I can--
-You can figure this out?

-I got it.

I’m sorry.

I sound like such
a narcissistic dick right now.

-SERVER: Thank you.

You sound pretty reasonable,

Hey, look, at least
let me get it.

-Let me get it.


From what you said, you’re
about to be unemployed, so...

I feel like you’re bummed.

No, I’m good.

If it’s not meant to be,
it’s not meant to be.

Not like it’s the end

Ooh, dude,

He had that custom-made

-It’s his prized possession.

And besides, I didn’t break it.
Paul did.


don’t even try it, Probie.

Thing was working fine

And you probably
packed the filter basket

and ran it

I enjoy a robust cup.

I’m not gonna apologize
for that.

How many times
do I have to tell you?

It puts a strain on it.


Probably overheated, threw off

over packed the filter basket.

Again, wow.

No, it’s true.

I always try to warn him
that his grounds are too tight.

Throws off the calibration

So unplug it.
Get it serviced.

So you’re not mad?

At a coffee maker?
Who cares?

Did he really just

Did he really just call it
a "coffee maker"?

Yeah, whatever’s going on
with him this morning is--

It’s bad.

I know how you feel, boy.



Hey, Cap.

Uh, can I help you guys?

Yeah, we were actually gonna

OWEN: Hey, if you wanna take

knock yourself out.

Look, I hope you’re
not expecting us to pretend

like we don’t see
those dark clouds

hanging over your head.

Dark clouds?
There are no clouds.

Those frown lines between
your eyes would beg to differ.

Has anyone ever told you
that when you do your thing,

it feels a little bit
like a violation?

Yes, all the time.

The therapy
that you forced me into--

my guy’s always saying
that the first step

to solving a problem is
admitting that there is one.

Is Cowboy Judd
really gonna force me

to talk about my feelings?

I’m as surprised as you are,
you know?

It’s TK.

He may not be coming back
after his medical leave.

Whoa, what--was there
a complication?

No, medically, he’s gonna have
a full recovery.

He just doesn’t know
whether he wants to do this.

The kid got shot, all right?
So you gotta give him a minute.

Yeah, as many as he wants,
but now he’s saying

he’s not sure
that he ever wanted to do it.

That’s crazy.
I mean, he was made to do this.

I agree.

Even if he doesn’t know
who he is right now, I do,

but I’m the one person
who can’t tell him.

Nobody can, Cap.

Yeah, it’s something somebody
has to figure on their own.


You want me to talk to him?

ROSEWATER: Sorry to interrupt,
guys, but Captain Strand,

is there any chance
you’ve spoken

with Captain Blake
this morning?

-No, why?
-She hasn’t come in.

We haven’t been able

We’re told it’s the largest

Joining us via satellite

Dr. Isabelle Wali.

Dr. Wali, what are we
dealing with here?

The waves of energy
currently battering our plane

are a result
of a coronal mass ejection

or CME--an explosion
on the surface of the sun

which has released
powerful bursts

of electromagnetic energy
into the solar system.

So what can we expect?

it’s been 150 years

back on dry land?

Nothing crazy--they just added
a couple extra stitches.

-I’m an addict--

No, Dad, I need to do this.

in New York, I had a relapse--
pretty bad one.

I OD’d and my dad--

well, my captain--he found me

My heart had stopped, and,
well, he did what he does best,

and he saved my life,
and the only reason

I came down here
was ’cause he forced me to.

You know?

What I’m trying to say is,

I never really chose this
for myself.

Any of it.

Not even
becoming a firefighter.

-Hey, hey.

Whatever you gotta say
right here, say it,

He’s right, man.
We got you, fam.

Yeah, well, that’s the point

TK: And I knew in that instant
that not only

was she gonna be okay
but I was gonna be okay too

because this is what I wanna do
for the rest of my life.

And, at least for now,

this is where I wanna do it--

With you guys, so...

I choose this family...

She’s been living on the street

She’s sick--

has untreated

We realize now that she was
showing signs of it

I’m so sorry.

She’s been living
in this homeless camp

where I volunteer
twice a week.

For years I have been searching
heaven and Earth for her,

and the whole time she was just
right there in front of me.

I mean, how many times did
I just walk right past her?

Well, you’d never walk past
somebody who needs help,

so she probably
didn’t wanna be found.


My mom and I tried
to get her to come with us,

but she refused.

So what now?

Oh, I have no idea.

I could try
and get her committed,

but she’s been out
there for three years.

It’s hard to argue she can’t
take care of herself.

Yeah, that’d be difficult.

Well, I’ve recently learned
that you can’t make anyone

do anything even if it’s

Particularly if it’s

Keep the door open.
Keep the light on.

Keep trying.
