this week on CBS Land of Fire, the mantra was: “You’re not the worst thing you’ve ever done.” But has Bode been able to begin to prove it to his father?

Episode 3 of the first-rate hit (completed season order) opens when Bode has a bad dream about the night Riley died. We see how Riley is devastated by her fight with Jake and desperately trying to get out of the moving car. Bode, as we know, reached out to him and, trying to pull Riley back, steered the car away from oncoming traffic, but into a tree.

In this week’s fire incident, a young man came running through the woods, burning and with a gun in his hand. large amount of grass. When it went out, he announced that he had left a friend behind in the middle of the fire. Vince and Jake began a search and eventually found a marijuana grower’s camp and the other man in a trap near this camp, with his leg hooked to a nail. But before Vince and Jake could deal with the man, the breeder Mojave showed up and pulled a gun on the Cal Fire duo. Vince first managed to get a “mayday” signal that angered Mojave and turned the stalemate into a hostage situation.

While dealing with a zippered Vince and Jake predicament, Bode got wind of what had happened. And despite the sheriff’s department declaring jurisdiction, Bode—certainly knowing that an armed Mojave was involved—was able to persuade Manny to go find his men. Arriving at the Breeder’s camp, Bode invited the Mojave to recognize/remember from their shadowy past, which helped ease the tension. Bode also vouched for Manny by pointing out his captain’s own fraudulent history, and they were able to persuade Mojave to let Vince and Jake treat the boy in the pit. Still, Vince was “smart” along the way, catching a flare and then using it not so slyly to signal their position. Things escalated again as Mojave felt betrayed, but Bode managed to smooth things over again. By then, the fire in the camp was out, at which point everyone—the good guys, the bad guys, and the wounded man—loaded into the breeders’ van and scrambled out of the woods through the fire. Mojave and his associates were promptly arrested, but Bode suggested that Mojave could join them, perhaps at Three Rock, once he had some time.

That night, Bode receives a visitor – his father is poked by Sharon to retract the “Leave City” order he had given years ago. And although Vince seemed ready to say the right things, the conversation turned out to be tricky. No, despite what this week’s roughly edited promotion suggests, Vince did immortality I think Bode should die instead of Riley. What he actually said was that Bode should have been with him instead of Jake in Cal Fire. Bode could be the fourth generation Cal Fire, he has it in his blood but he showed no interest. But Jake did.

Vince tells Bode: “You’re my son. You’re my son.” But then the two unpacked the gloss that Jake came out of from the Buckeye fire together, and something Bode had hinted at during his standoff with Mojave. Bode was already in pain the night Riley died from a terrible breakup from Jake. She shares what she’s in.

As Vince covered the big news, Bode said, “Look, I’m not perfect and I know my mom wants her family back…. But from where I stand, you all started a family without me. I bad guy.” And he doesn’t want to go back to that.

Elsewhere this week, Gabriela was among a handful of probes attending Eve’s training program at Cal Fire. And though she had left at least one bruh, by the end of Day 1 Gabriela was standing proudly there, putting together her uniform/”armor” for “drill sergeant” Eve, smoothly and quickly.
