Hey, so I was thinking.

next we go oxtail ragu
and scallop crudo.

Sounds awesome, babe.

Maggie, you promised me we'd be
pre-kid Ben and Mags tonight.

I'm sorry.

-I'm trying, Ben.

Because you haven't even
touched your burrata and fig.

It's just hard.

I have been with Finn
every minute for ten months.

It just feels weird
being apart from him.

Like I'm being a terrible mom.

That's--that's crazy.
You're an amazing mom.

What if he's scared or lonely?

Or he poops his diaper and he
has to sit in it for hours?

Then we fire the babysitter.


Just one peek.



He's having a great time,
and you should too.

Besides, Danielle is amazing,

and her babysitting reviews
are off the charts.

Where is Danielle?

I gave her an extra 100 bucks
to do the laundry.

Then who is Finn rattling at?

Oh, my God!
Oh, my God!

Oh, my God!

OWEN: Austin FD!
Open up!

Got anything from Dispatch?

JUDD: They're supposed to be
en route from dinner,

but nobody can get ahold
of them,

so we got Animal Control

-All right, take it.
-All right.

OWEN: All right,
let's find this nursery.

Paul, Marjan, Mateo,
you guys look upstairs.

Watch your step.

We're dealing with
a 5-foot rattlesnake here.

Do you have a name
on the babysitter?


-(cat hisses)

Someone's a little jumpy.

Well, yeah.
I hate snakes.

Well, you're Cowboy Judd.

I thought you grew up
with snakes.

Yeah, that's why I hate 'em.

Eyes on the ground, guys.

(baby cries)

You haven't seen a big scary
snake around, have you?

Is he hurt?

Check for swelling
or puncture wounds.

Nah, I'm pretty sure
he just hates me.

And I think he pooped.


-Whoa, whoa, whoa!

-Whoa, whoa, whoa!
-And I think I pooped.

-MAGGIE: Finn!
-MATEO: He's okay.

He's stinky, but he's okay.

-(baby cries)
-Thank you.

Thank you so much.

I wouldn't come any closer.


Where's Danielle?

-Where's y

our laundry?
-The basement.


(snakes rattle)

-Well, that's not good.


Owners say there's a crack
in the foundation.

They threw a tarp over it
to create a moisture barrier,

looks like that's
what drew the snakes.

All right, Judd and I
will go in first.

Blast those little bastards
with some frosty CO-2.

That'll give you guys
enough time to get inside

and get her out in the bag.

How far is EMS
with the antivenom?

-ETA is two minutes.
-OWEN: You good to go?

Hell no!
Let's go.

right, let's keep
things moving right along.Who's next on the mic?

Would you stop being s

wuss and get up there already?
- I'm not being a wuss.
I'm just waiting for my moment.

MICHELLE: We've been waiting
for your moment

for three hours.

-That guy was good.
-Yes, and so are you.

It's one thing to sing
in the shower,

it's another thing to sing

in front of a whole room
of people.

You're clothed for one.

Iris, come on.
Don't push.

-I'm just nervous.
-You're nervous?

The other day,
you plugged a dude's artery

with your finger, but a roomful
of hipsters makes you nervous?

Maybe I'm not the only one
who gets nervous.

You have a beautiful voice.
You should share it.

You're my sister.
You have to say that.

That's true.


I missed a bunch of texts
from Dustin.

Just say you're with me.

He knows I'm with you.

He just wants to know
how long I'll be.

He's really got you trained.

I know what you think, okay?

We just have
a very intense connection.

Well, if you have such
a strong connection,

why don't you just tell him
you're busy?

Yeah, watching my sister

chicken wire gravy spoon

Watching you chicken out!

I think someone's had
a little too much tequila,

-if you ask me.

Listen, if you go up next,

I'll stop
running up your bar tab.

I don't know.

I think we should have
another drink.

-Your call.


You doing okay, chica?

Not even close.


Whatever happens in there--

SARINA: We're still processing
the truck for evidence,

but we found a few items we'd
like you to take a look at.

And what about Iris
and that guy, Wade?

We found some skeletal remains
in the vehicle

and in the surrounding area.

Animal activity spread things
pretty wide.

Forensics thinks
as many as four people

may have been in that truck.

Now, it's gonna take some time

to match any DNA
on those remains,

but there were traces of blood
in that truck, quite a lot.

Those results should
come back sooner.

In the meantime,

these items were also found
in the truck or nearby.

Michelle, can you please
come and take a look

and see if you recognize

Anything that
could have belonged to Iris?

Take your time.


Definitely not that.


What about that phone?

-Does that look familiar?

It's not hers.

-The bracelet?

My dad got that for her
on her 14th birthday.

She never took it off.

I'll be honest,
Captain Strand.

There are some numbers
I don't like here.

Your blood pressure's up.
Your glucose is elevated.

Well, I've been going through
some stresses at work,

and I may have been hitting
the cookie dough

a little too hard.

And you're sleeping
fewer hours per night

than you were
when you first moved here.

Rebuilding a firehouse
is a full-time job.

It doesn't really lend itself
to time off.

I am concerned that

you're burning the candle
at both ends.

Also, you shouldn't
be drinking on chemo.

-Not even a little?

Doc, first you take
my hair treatments

and now you're taking
my tequila.

What about the cancer?

Now the part I do like.

This is a scan of your tumor

when we began
our treatment together.

This is what
it looks like today.

Now it's hard to tell
with the naked eye,

but the tumor
has a circumference

that is 2.77% smaller than
when you started this therapy.

That sounds like good news?

It's great news.

And the fascinating thing is

the reduction is almost
the identical average

that we saw with
your canine counterparts.

I'm sorry, my--my what now?

The immunotherapy drug cocktail
that you're on

is available only to humans

because it was tested on dogs
with lung cancer first.

You mean like caged lab dogs?

Not at all.
Canine patients.

Their owners enroll them
in these trials

to give them a shot at a
longer life.

They come in for treatments
just like you.

Most go home at night.

You say some of them come home.
What about the other ones?

Some don't have homes
to go home to.

It's not uncommon for some
of them to be abandoned.

For those that are, they're
housed in a lab downtown.

Uh, more like a kennel.

Where I promise you they
are treated very humanely.

it has to be The Ring Two

or Final Destination 2
or The Grudge 3.

those are some weak choices.

Worst sequels of all time?

The scariest movies
of all time.

All right, everyone knows
that the scariest movies

are the ones where the monsters
are inside of you.

The Shining.
Dude was crazy.

Or The Exorcist
where the demon's inside.

Rosemary's Baby?
Devil baby?


- Nah, bro.

I mean, that is
a fine looking animal.

Everybody, say hello to
the newest member of the 126.


MATEO: No way!
You mean we get to keep it?

-Dying of cuteness.
-Oh, finally!

I outrank someone.

Oh yeah, you think he's gonna
follow you around

and clean up after you?

-Good point.
-Seriously, Dad?


I begged you
my entire life for a dog

and you've always said no.

We lived in an apartment
in a high-rise.

Who was gonna walk him?

And what made you pick
this handsome fellow, Cap?

This handsome fellow
is my canine counterpart.


Yeah, he's definitely got
the signature look.

He's also got the exact same
type of lung cancer as I have.

Oh, no!

That's so sad.

Oh, come on.
Toughen up.

Buttercup's a fighter like me.

And it's because of him.
and dogs like him,

that I'm able to get
my immunotherapy treatments.


His previous owner donated him

so he was living at the clinic.

They let me adopt him.

Hey, TK!

A firehouse is no place

What about the dalmatians?
They're like the firehouse OGs.

Yeah, why is that, anyway?

MATEO: Because I think
they're deaf in one ear.

That can't be right.

No, it was because they weren't
afraid of fire or horses,

which pulled
the original fire carriages.

They would just run ahead
of everybody

and warn the town that
we were coming.

Oh, so they were like
the first sirens.

Well, how cool is that?

I'm in danger.

just part Guadalupe street,

like two cars back.

He was outside
my apartment this morning.

-What does he want?

there's a police station
a quarter of a mile

from where you are--do you
think you can drive there?

No police.

They'll kill her.

Where did you find this?

Is that your sister's voice?


That was in the call history

of the phone we found
in the wreckage.

But that wasn't Iris' phone.

I think it was.

That phone you showed me

was like some kind of
drug dealer's burner phone.

Or a phone used
by anyone concerned

with being followed or tracked.

She sounds so paranoid.

Maybe somebody
was really following her.

was following your sister.

Please tell them.


SARINA: I--I think that
the kind of mental illness

I suspect your sister
was suffering from

often doesn't present in women
until their late 20s,

even early 30s.

Dustin said
she'd started to change.

This makes so much sense.

And it certainly would explain

why she might've be drawn
into the orbit

of someone like Wade Caldwell.

But he didn't murder her.

I think what happe

ned with your
sister was just an accident.

A tragic accident.

You got the blood work back?

I'm very sorry.

Happy birthday, babe.

I can't believe it's been
ten years already

since you've been gone.

-I miss you, Daddy.

Oh, this.
All of this.

We're throwing a birthday
for a dead guy.

Talking to a photo
like it's people.

It's hilarious.

Iris, honey,

yeah, I guess it is
maybe a little goofy,

now that you mentioned it.

Really, Mom?

What's your deal?

Are you on something?
Why would you ask me that?

Because you're acting weird
and you look like hell.

Michelle, that's no way
to speak to your sister.

So you're just gonna pretend

like you're not
seeing this too?

Have you looked at her?

When's the last time
you brushed your hair or slept?

What, are you gonna start
following me now too?


Iris, ever since you started
dating that guy--

Dustin has an IQ of 141, okay?

He went to Dartmouth.

You couldn't get
into freaking Texas State!

Um, okay, I don't know why
that's relevant,

and it's definitely mean.

Listen, Iris,

you're beautiful
and kind and talented.

Just don't let some guy
derail your dreams.

Oh, you're gonna lecture me
about dreams, okay?

You're the one who has dreams
being a singer

but you're too big of a coward
to go up on an open mic night.

So don't talk to me
about my boyfriend, okay?

At least I have a boyfriend.

-I'm gonna go.

-No, no, no.

I think it's a really good idea
before I smack her.

-We're having a party!
-I love you.

Happy birthday, Daddy.

And they're sure?

The blood was a match.

And what about her body?

They still have
to identify the remains

that they found out there,

and that's gonna take
some time,

but Iris was definitely
in the truck.

Well, who is that Wade person?

Wade Caldwell.
He was a bad guy, Mom.

Why would your sister
be involved

with someone like that?

A freaking criminal?
A monster?

It just--
it doesn't make any sense!

I don't think Wade Caldwell
was Iris' monster, Mom.

I think the monster
was inside of her.

She had an illness.

She was exhibiting signs
of schizophrenia.


Mom, we both witnessed it.

The jumbled speech,
the inappropriate laughter.

The sudden bursts of anger.

Oh, your sister
was always moody.


This was more than moody.

This was something else.


I'm sorry.
I know this is hard.

She was sick
and somehow I knew it.

I knew it and then...

I was so angry at her
because of it

that I--I ignored it,
and I ignored her.

-That's not true.
-It is true.

She called me so many times.

That night she called
and I just--I didn't pick up.

the man in your home

is just confused.

-(knocking on door)
-What? What, he's crazy.

Well, he's ill.
He's suffering from dementia.

He used to live in that house,
and he thinks he still does.

I'm gonna try and contact him

while we wait
for the police, okay?

-(knock on door)
-BRUCE: Amy!

Amy, are you okay?

Amy, answer me!

(cell phone rings)

(cell phone rings)



Bruce, this is Grace,

the 9-1-1 operator
you were speaking to earlier.

Do you remember?

Yeah, you were gonna send
the police.

-Where are they?
-GRACE: They're on their way.

Bruce, I need you to step away
from the bedroom door.

Can you do that for me?

No, my wife's in there.

GRACE: No, she's not, Bruce.

We just spoke to Amy, okay?
And she's fine.

But she's very worried
about you.

Where is she?

We spoke to her at your home,

I am home.

No, Bruce.
You're not.

That's not your home,
not anymore.

It used to be a long time ago.

Somebody broke in,
the back door was open.

I think maybe it was you
who broke in, Bruce.

Could that be?

I couldn't--
I couldn't find my key.

That's right.
That's right.

Because that's not
your home anymore, is it?

You wouldn't have the key.

(faint whimpering)

Oh, God.
What have I done?

You made a mistake, Bruce.
That's all.

But we're gonna fix it for you.

I have some things
I need you to do for me, okay?

Are you still holding
that knife in your hand?


I needed protection.

Of course you did,
and that's okay.

But the police are
on their way,

and I do not want them to get
the wrong idea, Bruce.

So I need you to take that
knife and lay it on the floor.

Can you do that for me?



I did it.
GRACE: Okay, good.

Now I need you to go outside,
through the front door.

Walk towards the street
with your hands raised

so the officers can see them
as they pull up.

-(faint whimpering)
-I'm so sorry.

I know you are, Bruce.

Everything is gonna be okay,

I promise you that.

The whole team is here.

I tried to get them to go home,

so I don't think
they're going anywhere.

I talked to your mom.
That was a fun conversation.

She went into full lawyer mode.

She practically deposed
the doctor,

asked him
a million medical questions.

The good news is he told her

they were able
