Rescue Me takes a darker turn

OK, the boys of Truck 62 have always been dark and twisty, especially Tommy Gavin. His dysfunctional family and alcoholism have led him down some destructive paths in the past.

But tonight’s episode ventures where Tommy, and dare I say it, no other television show has ever gone. The final minutes take dark to a whole new level.

If you thought the chief putting a gun to his head was pushing the envelope, then you ain’t seen nothing yet.

Sure the show still has its laugh-out-loud moments, but the situation brewing at the Gavin household with the new baby is becoming more and more disturbing. I don’t want to spoil you, so just watch the show tonight at 10 p.m. ET on FX, so we can chat about it in the comments section below.

You have your assignment. See you back here after the show.

OK Tube Talk Girl, way to suck me in. Please tell me they don't hurt that baby!!!! Janet has serious post partum and someone needs to step in. Hello, Tommy!

Tommy's daughter seems to hate the baby. I bet she does something. Or wino Janet.

Kim said...

NOOOO. Don't hurt the baby. Is there no line this show won't cross?

miz behavin said...

I don't get it. Tommy is distraught over the "baby fire" so he reacts by trying to kill his own baby??????

Explain, please. Someone.

I think he believes he'll be sparing the kid from a life of pain. I'm still not sure if he's dreaming or if he's actually pulling a Michael Jackson and dangling the kid for real.

I don't get the Lou storyline. No way would a dude who looks like he does walk away from a woman who looks like that!

I thought that fire scene was haunting. Really well done.

But, I don't get why it's such an issue to name the baby. So what if the kid is Tommy's brother's baby? That shouldn't have driven Tommy to this point.

Janet is obviously suffering from depression and Tommy should step in before she hurts herself or the kids.

I didn't get last night's episode. I still don't after watching it again. Why won't they name the baby? Do they really hate him that much that they can't form any emotional attachment?

Were they referring to John Travolta's famous photo kissing that guy when they were talking about Mikey's parents' photos? I swear I thought I heard them say "maybe it was Travolta." Too funny.

Lieu breaking up with the nun was a shocker, but not as shocking as that final scene. Funy though that Lieu wanted a baby, but Tommy and Janet don't.

I bet Catholics everywhere are seething after Tommy's religious rant: "The Bible is to Catholics what "The Godfather" is to the Mafia." Ouch!

I feel bad for poor Mike. I can't believe Sean burned down his house.

Jill said...

I love the probie! Finally, a probie who can hold his own and not be intimidated by Tommy.

Ryan said...

Everyone needs to calm down! He's not going to kill the baby. I don't think they'd go there. Janet might. But I don't think Tommy will. Of course, crazy Sheila will probably kidnap the kid to "save" it.

Jack said...

I love the new nicknames. Leslie, G Money...black sean..stretch...priceless.

Yes, Spike, I think that's what they were referring to. It's the only thing that makes sense.
