For those of you who saw the previous episode: One of the guys on the other truck was so drunk that Tommy locked him into the firetruck, took the drunk guy’s jacket and ran into the fire, helping save someone.
In last night’s episode, he dusted off his cousin Bobby Keefe’s jacket and continued to sneak into fires and save people.
My question is, why is he doing this? I can understand if he thinks everybody on that truck are a bunch of drunks, but why use his dead cousin’s jacket? Is he hoping they’ll think they’re seeing a ghost, or is that just a side-effect? I can’t understand why he keeps doing this with the Keefe jacket.
I’m also confused about what he’s doing at the firehouse. Are both trucks in the same house? If so, wouldn’t he be missed on his own truck?
