Hearth Nation Season 2 Episode 6 Overview: Alert the Sheriff


Lastly! Hearth Nation is again!

No, not again on the air. We’re already midway by means of a shortened season as a consequence of a delay in manufacturing brought on by the 2023 author’s strike.

However Hearth Nation Season 2 Episode 6 gave followers what we have been anticipating because the success of Hearth Nation Season 1.

Motion. Household. Redemption. The feels. And boy, was there lots to really feel with this episode!

After a sluggish begin and peculiar pacing, many puzzled if Season 1 was a fluke. The primary 5 episodes of Season 2 dragged alongside, with a whole lot of matches thrown right into a pit, hoping they’d catch flame. It did not occur.

No offense to Max Theriot, the thoughts and major actor behind the collection, however issues did not work for the primary half of Season 2. All the things was off.

Nonetheless, there’s hope for extra success for Hearth Nation and attractive bad-boy jail firefighter Bode Leone, and never simply because CBS just lately introduced there might be a 3rd season.

Regardless of beginning with a sluggish burn, this episode lit on hearth.

It is no secret that we might meet a brand new collection common this season, a Sheriff’s Deputy with a shocking connection to the Leones.

Let me inform you, this uber-fan didn’t see the course wherein the wind would blow the story. Discovering that Deputy Mickey Fox — performed by Morena Baccarin — wasn’t simply an outdated good friend from the previous knocked this viewer for a loop.

Vince: It is Mickey. Wish to take that?
Sharon: No. She’s calling you.
Vince: You have been desirous to make up along with her. So.
Sharon: I do know. Not now. Not prepared.
Vince: She’s not the enemy. She’s your sister.
Sharon: Alright, tremendous.

Properly performed, writers!

Did you determine that Deputy Fox can be Sharon Leone’s sister? Or did you suppose she would play a distinct position from their previous? Drop your ideas within the feedback.

The present engages viewers from the opening scene when Bode and Cole discuss Gen. It is cute how invested Bode is in being a father. And Bode appears to be dealing with Cara’s passing fairly effectively. Quite a bit higher than Jake.

Cole: Bode, how’s Gen doing?
Bode: Gen’s with my of us now. She’s adjusting, however she’s coping with a whole lot of grief. Attempting to hustle up a bunch of assist for her. However you realize, it isn’t straightforward being a dad if you’re in jail.
Rudy: Amen to that.

Many followers have been disillusioned up to now within the collection that we aren’t seeing extra concentrate on the opposite inmates at Three Rock.

We normally solely see Bode together with his side-kick. In season one, it was Freddie. In Hearth Nation Season 2, it is Cole.

We additionally obtained to satisfy one other inmate, Rudy, a crass outdated man with whom we struggled to empathize regardless of studying he had terminal most cancers with lower than six months to reside.

It isn’t shocking that Bode related with an older father determine inmate. He additionally felt liable for saving Rudy when he escaped. He has that hero complicated down pat.

However it seems prefer it runs within the household, from his firefighter mother and father and uncle to his legislation enforcement aunt.

Fox lives as much as her animal identify, being sly and sexily sarcastic as she outwits and solves the case. 

You’ll be able to inform that she’s critical about her job and sticks to the principles. She has the potential to be an incredible sheriff. Whether or not she’ll be nearly as good at her private life stays to be seen.

There may be a whole lot of alternative for story growth, comparable to seeing her work together along with her drug-addicted baby.

Mockingly, she’s on the suitable aspect of the legislation when she has a legal father, nephew, and daughter.

It was thrilling how the writers intertwined a lot in a single episode with out it feeling as congested as earlier episodes.

Every scene gave hints for what was to come back. The entire crooked cop scene was apparent from a mile away. You can inform there was one thing off about him from the second they had been within the interrogation room.

And whereas earlier episodes have been too soapy for a lot of viewers — together with this one — this time, the drama was on level.

The dynamic between Sharon and Mickey introduced the episode to life. The primary season’s robust household undercurrent has been missing up to now this season.

Seeing that pressure between the estranged sisters solely intensified the motion.

However now that issues appear on the mend, we’ll have to attend and see the place they’re going to steer the household drama subsequent. Perhaps the daughter from rehab will are available subsequent.

It might be fascinating to see Bode work together together with his troubled cousin and perhaps steer her in the suitable course.

He is doing so effectively with the fatherly intuition and the serving to others ordeal.

He would possibly stand an opportunity at saving yet one more troubled soul. At this level, we have misplaced rely of how many individuals he is helped.

This episode gave us extra of the household really feel than the pointless drama of the 5 earlier episodes. There wasn’t as a lot hazard, and the main focus was extra on the inmates than the fireplace, which was a pleasant change of tempo.

And we obtained again Bode because the attractive, badass, self-righteous hero we fell in love with in Season 1.

It is superior that he isn’t appearing silly over Gabriela and that he wasn’t overly heroic to the purpose that it was a dumb threat.

It is enjoyable to see one other aspect of him, one wherein he makes use of reasoning and emotion to resolve conditions somewhat than a bodily activity.

Mickey appeared to agree. However I am hoping her suggestion does not do a lot to influence the courts to cut back Bode’s sentence.

In my report, I will give Bode credit score for what he did as we speak. You guys ought to be proud.


I am having fun with the completely different spin on the standard legal first responder state of affairs. So, I belong with the followers who aren’t able to see Bode sprung from the slammer.

He has an excessive amount of work to do on the camp and nonetheless must develop emotionally and mentally, particularly after the abrupt passing of Cara, his former (and Jake’s present) love curiosity.

As a lot as Bode has matured since coming to Three Rock in Hearth Nation Season 1 Episode 1, placing him on the skin too early might injury his progress.

And talking of progress, seeing the adjustments in Eve’s character was tremendous thrilling. All through Season 1, Eve was the charismatic Bode supporter kick-ass chick firefighter.

However as many followers have voiced since Hearth Nation Season 2 began, we don’t get the identical alliance in the direction of her since taking on Three Rock.

She’s been caught up in being in cost and attempting to maintain the fireplace camp open. And that has led to some sparks flying between her and the inmates.

And Manny.

Seeing her joking alongside Manny within the opening scene was superior. The author who made up that scene deserves a increase.

Eve: Gabs, your dad stated the daddiest dad joke of all time. I’m going good job placing out the fireplace. He stated…
Manny: We fame to please.
Eve: He — no. Boo.
Gabriela: Cease.
Manny: What do you suppose, Jake? Does that joke belong within the Corridor of Flame?
Eve: Oh no.
Gabriela: No.
Manny: Come on.
Eve: Boo.
Manny: Come on. That was good.
Gabriela: Dad.
Manny: That was good.
Gabriela: No.
Jake: Yo, Eve. You and your crew are on mopup, okay?
Manny: Guess he does not like my jokes.
Eve: I am a little bit apprehensive about Jake. You realize, it has been like a month since Cara handed. And he hasn’t taken any day without work.
Gabriela: That is how he is coping with his grief.

However it wasn’t simply Manny with whom Eve acted in a different way. She was additionally extra in tune along with her expenses, so she wasn’t a hardass when she thought Rudy was simply sleeping in — not lacking.

It is going to be fascinating to see how Eve fights for the prisoners now that the city has began a petition to shut Three Rock.

The camp has some highly effective supporters. However we have now to surprise if it will likely be sufficient to save lots of this system after the catastrophe and dangerous publicity of Rudy’s escape and the sheriff’s dying.

Manny: Hear. It seems like these DOC guards are sticking round. And there is a petition to close down Three Rock.
Eve: Yeah, I, uh I noticed that. Look, I believe when every thing settles, individuals will notice that Rudy did not kill the Sheriff.
Manny: Naw. It does not matter. They take a look at us. All they see are convicts.
Eve: So we have now to do higher at defending ourselves.Speak in regards to the applications and the way it helps these guys.
Manny: Eve. Eve. Eve. I made my very own daughter okay with my incarceration. Now we gotta do the identical factor to this city. We gotta flip the narrative. Make them proud to be related to people who find themselves combating to show their lives round. Three Rock does not make this city harmful. Three Rock makes this city nice.
Eve: You suppose they’re going to consider that?
Manny: Completely. Trigger it is true.

What is going to Hearth Nation Season 3 appear to be if there isn’t any Three Rock jail hearth camp?

Then there’s poor Jake. Simply as he lastly discovered a girl he needed to calm down with, the universe snatched her away. His disconnection with every thing is relatable and heartbreaking.

It was a harrowing feeling questioning if Jake Crawford would withdraw from these round him a lot that he alienated the additionally mourning Gen. It soothed the soul to see him present up for her when she wanted it.

As action-packed and emotional as the complete episode was, nothing was extra highly effective than the ultimate two scenes.

Sharon: We had been a household. And trigger we did not share any DNA, when our mother and father cut up, we cut up.
Mickey: However right here we’re. Combating. Apologizing. Nearly like actual sisters. I imply, take a look at them. None of them share your DNA. However they’re your loved ones. You probably did that. You created this huge, superb household that all of us need to be part of. Least, more often than not.

Not solely did we get to witness Sharon and Mickey taking their first main steps towards forgiveness and redemption, However we additionally obtained to witness Bode’s devastation when he came upon he was not a father.

The anticipation of the place they’ll take the storyline subsequent is an excessive amount of to deal with.

From the convo between Bode and his mother and father, it does not sound like we’ll be seeing Gen going wherever. This begs the query of how she’s going to react when she finds out Bode is not her dad.

Bode: You bought the outcomes. She’s not mine.
Sharon: No. However it does not matter. Nothing has to alter.
Vince: Custodial choose stated that DNA will not be a figuring out issue. That custody will go to whoever has the child’s greatest curiosity at coronary heart.
Sharon: And that may nonetheless be you.
Bode: Does she know?
Sharon: No.
Bode: I promised her mother. I promised Cara.
Sharon: I do not suppose that promise has to alter.
Bode: I’ve tousled a lot. I needed this to be, simply the one good factor that I do. I needed her to have a household. Even when we aren’t her household.
Sharon: We’re.

Will she need to discover out who’s? Will she depend on Jake or Vince to fill that position? Or will she embrace the fatherly love Bode already feels for her regardless of the identical DNA?

One other looming query left unanswered is whether or not Bode is adjusting effectively to the lack of Cara. The emotion he displayed when he stated he did not fulfill his promise needed to be essentially the most painful second of the episode.

Is he okay? Or will grief sneak up on him when he is much less ready and trigger a setback? Make sure you are tuning into Hearth Nation each week to search out out.

We’re desperate to see what else awaits the Leone household and buddies, the destiny of Three Rock, and the way followers react to the brand new face on the scene.

If there’s sufficient love proven for Deputy Sheriff Mickey Fox (who could be up for a promotion now that the present sheriff is useless and the opposite deputy is in jail — we could be yet one more collection spinoff.

This is all we all know in regards to the Hearth Nation spinoff Sheriff Nation, that includes Morena Baccarin as Mickey Fox. Tell us what you consider the most recent member of the family within the feedback.
