A volcano on the southern edge
of Austin,

once thought to be extinct,

has only been dormant,

scientists are now
telling us...

You don't say.

When what geologists
are calling a volcanic fissure

opened up underneath
Paradise Family Fun Center.

But scientists warn

this could be
just the beginning.

Pilot Knob off Highway 183

is part of a magmatic system
several miles in diameter

that's been inactive since
the late Cretaceous period.

Today it woke up.

How is this real life?

Tim, can I see you for a sec?

Cap, it's a volcano.


♪ ♪

Yeah, Cap, what is it?

Out in the field,
you promised that little boy

that his dad was gonna be fine.

And he was, thank God.

But you're not God.
You can't do that.

What if it had gone
the other way?

-But it didn't.
-But it could have.

I wasn't thinking; I just
wanted to make him feel better.

No, you wanted
to make yourself feel better.

Don't do it again.

So do we think
this whole thing's gonna blow?

I'll, uh, let Dr. Limaye

of the U.S. Geological Survey
answer that one.

I know when one thinks

one pictures
a conical mountain

spewing lava and ash.

Yeah, that's exactly
the kind of thing

I'm trying not to picture.

But Pilot Knob proper
is essentially extinct.

It's the system around it

volcanic material
that's been bottled up

for millions of years.

The magma
that's moving underground

is looking for a way out,

and it's finding it.

Do we know when it's gonna
come up next?

The airport's out by Pilot Knob
and neighborhoods.

All flights
out of Austin-Bergstrom

have been grounded,

and we're contacting
the residents,

evacuating strategically.

How strategic can you be?

We're using
the seismic activity

we've been seeing
to track the movement

of the magma underground.

So what can we expect?

More of what
you already saw,

lava flows
up to 35 miles per hour;

semi-molten volcanic ejecta,
or lava bombs;

curtains of fire
hotter than 2,100 degrees.

So what you're saying is,
every crack

could become
a mass casualty event.

Potentially, yes.

Check it,
and then double-check it.

Then check it again.

I don't want any surprises
out there today.

What, besides
the active volcano?

Maybe I should pack
the all-weather gear

in case it starts
raining blood next.

A little locust repellant
wouldn't be a bad idea either.

See that?

Rallying the troops
with quippy quips?

That's what a real leader does.

That's what
a Marvel character does.

In the meantime,
where's our rallying?

Where's our captain?

No. Maybe a little. Fine.

scariest moment.

Yeah, but that's protocol too.

They got the next crew here

Yeah, but what about
the volcano--

Geologists say
seismic activity

has begun returning
to pre-eruption levels.

are cautiously optimistic

that the worst is over,

leaving Austin
with quite a mess to clean up

even Mother Nature needs

Maybe now she can keep it
bottled up

Thank you, Captain Vega.

We'll take care of it.

May I?


How you doing?

I managed to get through that
without weeping.

That's good.

If you need to weep now,
don't mind me.

They're sending a captain

from the Baltimore FD
to inform the family.

That's good.

It should be me.

What, you gonna fly out
to Baltimore?

This--this was a mistake.

-Thinking I could come back.


I've been a terrible leader.

I lost a member
of my team today.

I didn't even know him.

You ain't even been here
a month yet, T.

That's no excuse.

The only real interaction
I had with him was today--

when I scolded him.

-Did he merit it?
-That's not the point.

-That is the point.

I called him out

for making promises
to a patient.

And then I did
the same thing...

With my girls.

I lied to them, Judd.

They were terrified
for their mother

being out there
in the middle of all of that,

and I told them not to worry,

that everything
was gonna be fine.

That ain't lying to your girls.

Look, your girls
are eight years old.

You told 'em
what they needed to hear.

You're very good at that.

-You think so?
-I do think so.

You told me I needed
to marry Gracie, didn't you?

Doesn't take a genius.

Ain't nobody calling you
a genius.

Look, I know that...

If the world hadn't fallen
off of its axis,

you wouldn't be in that chair.

But it did, and you are.

And I think that's where
you wanna be.

I don't wanna feel like
I've abandoned my family.

You haven't.
