Bosco finds Faith and takes an unconscious Fred to the hospital. Faith lashes out at Bosco in her grief, but Bosco calmly goes to get her children and bring them to the hospital. Faith's daughter Emily is growing up. Bosco takes some of Faith's words to heart and lets Latrell, who saved the kid shot by a shotgun, out of lockup. Carlos blows up at Doc for never listening to him, and accuses Doc of being an unhappy man with a little bit of power. Ty and Sully are interrupted in the chaos of the blackout by a strange woman who claims her boyfriend has been hurt. The boyfriend turns out to be the married Chief of Patrol of the police force, and Ty and Sully suspect the woman to be a prostitute, but when the woman, Nancy, collapses with internal bleeding and shows signs of rape, Ty sticks around to figure out what happened. Ty's picture appears on the front page of the newspaper calling him a hero. Sully tells his wife, Tatiana, that he believes she wasn't a prostitute, but secretly he gets her fingerprints.

Sully runs his wife's prints and finds out that she is, in fact, Natasha Guerin, and has a history of prostitution. When Ty and Sully find a floater in the river they cross paths with Detective Madjanski, who works the Russian mob, and Madjanski thinks Sully is stepping on his toes when he finds out he ran Natasha's prints. Madjanski tells Sully Natasha was last with Chevchenko two weeks ago. Sully confronts Tatiana who admits her prostitution past but swears she hasn't seen Chevchenko since Sergei was beaten. Sully goes to Madjanski and tells him that Natasha is his wife. Fred Yokas is still in the hospital, and is in a strangely peaceful mood. Faith finds out that Fred feels like he was touched by Jesus and worries that Fred seems ready to die when he goes in for triple bypass surgery.

Ty finds himself turning down offers of shady promotion from the chief that he saved during the blackout.

#3 To Protect...: Aired Monday, October 14, 2002

When their diabetic child goes missing, a couple is quick to accuse a registered child molestor who lives in their building. Faith and Bosco question the kid's best friend and discover that he actually fell into an air shaft when he was throwing bricks from rooftops. Alex finds herself in the unique position of having the paramedic skills to treat the kid, and being the only firefighter small enough to fit down the air shaft. Alex hangs onto the kid in the shaft to keep him from falling to his death while Jimmy breaks through a wall to get to them. Carlos insists he has the perfect "older" woman for Doc in his building, but Doc hits it off with a cutie in a bar... until he realizes he never got her number. Sully makes the difficult decision to help Madjanski spy on Tatiana/Natasha to get to Chevchenko. Faith's remarkably adult daughter Emily picks up the slack around the household while Fred is in the hospital, but she doesn't make Faith feel good about it.

#4 Crash and Burn: Aired Monday, October 21, 2002

Jimmy is out riding his motorcycle and is minorly involved in a huge pile-up on the Hudson River Parkway. Doc is frustrated by one of his patients from the car crash, and elderly retired doctor who tries to refuse treatment so that he can die quickly instead of slowly from the advanced cancer that he has. Carlos tries to treat a bitchy woman who seems fine, but then later dies from a head wound. Jimmy rescues a father who is trapped in a car about to explode. Alex, helping out as both a paramedic and a firefighter, is hit by a driver speeding by the accident site, but is okay after surgery. Sully gets more and more uncomfortable with the surveillance of his wife. Tatiana goes to Chevchenko and asks him if her son can return to New York. Chevchenko says that her son has nothing to fear from him, but then secretly orders Sergei's death.

Fred comes home from the hospital and spends time reading the bible. Faith and her sullen daughter Emily have it out and have a screaming fight. Doc and Carlos bust a guy who's trying to fake an injury in a car accident. Bosco finds himself particularly attractive to women when he goes on patrol without Faith, who's taking the day off to take care of Fred. Chief Hancock insists that Ty become his new driver, even though Ty says he really doesn't want to. Sully decides he wants to try to make his marriage work and tells Madjanski that he's done with surveillance of Tatiana. Sergei returns to New York and is immediately shot to death when he arrives at Grand Central Station. Tatiana, in her grief, agrees to talk to Madjanski about Chevchenko and her son, but storms out of the police station when Madjanski lets it slip that her own husband was spying on her. Tatiana goes after Chevchenko herself, and is shot for her trouble. Sully, after fighting with Madjanski, returns home to find his apartment on fire and his wife dead.

Fred reads the bible to his children and reminds Emily that she shouldn't be so tough on her mother, because Faith works hard to make enough money to give them the luxuries at home that they enjoy. Sully is frustrated that Madjanski has been after Chevchenko for almost three years and still doesn't seem close to getting him. Chevchenko kills his own second-hand man and leaves the body with the gun that killed Tatiana. When Chevchenko calls Sully to offer him his condolences, Ty and Sully come up with idea of sending Sully in wired to talk to Chevchenko. Sully executes the plan with Madjanski, but Chevchenko isn't surprised and instead of admitting to being a murderer, he pretends the meeting is to bribe Sully.

He and Faith go after the arsonist, but are horrified when it turns out that their quarry is the Fire Chief's son. With help from Faith and her mother's point of view, Bosco learns why his mother is mad at him for trying to be a hero. Doc finds himself attracted to one of the women from the fire, and is pleased when she returns the sentiment even though she has a boyfriend.

Bosco saves Miguel from getting shot, but Miguel breaks his leg running away, and on the way to the hospital in the ambulance, they are blind-sided by an SUV and riddled with bullets. Ty is still stuck driving around Chief Hancock, and they spend most of their day trying to bust on-duty cops who are trying to get a jump on their Christmas shopping. Faith partners up with Sully, but she quickly realizes that her partner is not ready to be back on the job when they deal with a shop-owner and a truck driver who keep fighting over who gets to use the sidewalk.

Cruz and Bosco track the shooter, LaVonne, to the bus station, where they try to take him alive in order to get him to give up Vernon's name, but end up having to shoot him to save their own lives. Bosco is even more impressed with Cruz when she makes up a dying confession from LaVonne in order to arrest Vernon. Faith worries about Cruz's methods, and when she asks Bosco about LaVonne's dying confession, he lies to her and tells her it really happened. Carlos beats himself up over freezing up after the shooting in the ambulance. He harps on it to Doc until Doc himself admits that even though he recovered quickly, when the shots were fired he was only worrying about his own skin. Sully is suspended after his drunken stupidity at his mother's nursing home. Ty bids farewell to his boss's mistress, Nancy, when she tells him that she's leaving Hancock and moving to Denver. Nancy reminds Ty that he has power over Hancock, and Ty decides to make a deal that he'll keep Hancock's secret about his mistress, as long as Hancock gives Sully his job back and lets Ty out of being his driver.

Carlos realizes that he'll probably lose the case, especially when he finds out that no one in his fire house believes him innocent, and he could have this on his permanent record and perhaps lose the right to visit his own daughter. Carlos decides to quit the FDNY and hope that the girl's parents will then drop the charges. Jimmy gets dumped by his latest "tart du jour" and finds himself the poster boy for an impotency cream.
