Fire Country Recap: Season 1 Episode 3 – Vince and Jake’s hostage situation

This week on CBS fire landwas the mantra: “You’re not the worst thing you’ve ever done.” But could Bode prove that to his father?

Episode 3 of the freshman hit (which has just landed a season-long order) began with Bode having a bad dream about the night Riley died and we see her worrying about her fight with Jake and desperately trying to get out of the moving car. Bode, we know, grabbed her and, struggling to pull Riley back inside, steered the car away from oncoming traffic but into a tree.

In this week’s fire incident, a young man ran out of the woods, burned, and was carrying a large amount of grass. After being doused, he revealed he left a friend in the middle of the fire. Vince and Jake began a search and rescue and eventually found a marijuana grower’s camp and the other guy fell into a trap nearby, his leg impaled on a spike. But before Vince and Jake can take care of the guy, breeder Mojave shows up and points a gun at the Cal Fire duo. However, Vince is able to send out a “Mayday” signal first, which angers Mojave and turns the standoff into a hostage situation.

fire landAs Vince and Jake deal with their standoff, Bode gets wind of what happened. And although the sheriff’s department declares jurisdiction, Bode – knowing a securely armed Mojave is involved – is able to convince Manny to take him to find her boys. When Bode arrives at the growers’ camp, Bode invites Mojave to recognize/remember him from the past, and that helps de-escalate the mood a bit. Bode also vouches for Manny, noting his own history of cheating, and they are able to convince Mojave to let Vince and Jake treat the kid in the pit. However, Vince gets “smart” along the way and grabs a flare, which he then uses, not very stealthily, to signal their location. Things then escalate again as Mojave feels betrayed, but Bode is able to calm things down again. By then the fire has closed on the camp, and at that point everyone – the good guys, the bad guys, and the injured guy – load into the growers’ van and shoot through the fire and out of the woods. Mojave and his associates are promptly arrested, although Bode suggests that once he has some time, Mojave might be able to join them in Three Rock.

That night Bode gets a visitor – his father. And while Vince seemed ready to say the right things (or at least some of them), the conversation proved bumpy. No, despite what the edited promo suggested, Vince did Not think that Bode is the one who should have died instead of Riley. He says Bode should have been the one by his side at Cal Fire instead of Jake. Bode could have been fourth-generation Cal Fire, but he never showed any interest. But his best friend Jake did.

Vince confesses and repeats to Bode: “You are my son. You’re my son.” But then the two unpack the shiner Jake used to walk out of the Buckeye fire and something Bode alluded to during the standoff with Mojave. Bode shares that the night of her death, Riley was already in pain – from a terrible breakup with Jake.

As Vince processes the big news, Bode admits, “Listen, I’m not perfect and I know Mom wants her family back… But from my point of view, you all started a family without me and made me a villain.” And he doesn’t want to go back to that.

Elsewhere that week, Gabriela was among the few probies to enter Eve’s training program at Cal Fire. And although at least one Bruh was out, by the end of Day 1, Gabriela stood proud and smoothly and quickly assembled her uniform/”armor” for “Drill Sergeant” Eve.
