|“||People call us heroes. But if you ask any firefighter, we're the first to say, "No, we're not heroes. We're not super human. We're just regular people. We have flaws. We have fears. We just show up every day and do our job." That's it. It doesn't make us heroes. Somebody has to. It's not about being a hero. It's about facing fears. It's about finding strength. It's about going where you're needed. It's about making the hardest decisions in the worst of circumstances. It's about seeing the whole picture. It's about knowing how to follow and how to lead. It's not about us. I told you, we're just doing what has to be done. Somebody has to.||”|
Ben reaches a new milestone as a rookie and, as is tradition, receives something from the crew. Chief Ripley holds final interviews for the role of captain but is interrupted when the team is called to a massive skyscraper fire, causing several lives to hang in the balance.
While Andy's voice over talks about how firefighters are not heroes, each member of the team is handling different tasks at a call.

Andy wakes up on Maya's couch and she's shocked to see Maya with Charlotte Dearborn. It was Wednesday yesterday and that is Maya's self-care day in the form of one night stands. Andy tells Maya who she is. Maya says they weren't focused on names. Charlotte says she kicked Andy's ass. It's a big day for them with a Ripley sit down, but Charlotte thinks it's bigger for Andy since she screwed up The Incinerator. Maya tells her it's time to go. After a kiss, Charlotte leaves. Maya then tells Andy she had no idea. Andy thinks this is her final day as Captain because of what Pruitt told Ripley. Andy wants to enjoy the day, Dearborn-free. Maya says she does not get to have an opinion on who she brings home.
Victoria wonders why Ripley is doing the interviews here. She doesn't like the candidates being in their space. Maya agrees. Andy makes a snarky remark about Charlotte. Victoria feels a story there, but Maya and Andy talk about Andy's feeling that it's over for her. They walk to the reception desk. Victoria doesn't like the resignation she feels from Andy. She wonders why Andy would think she's out of the running. Andy looks at Pruitt at the desk and says just a hunch. Travis and Grant return from grocery shopping. Victoria tells Grant that Travis never lets anybody sleep over. Travis says he didn't, he just called him to help him out with the groceries.
Dean and Jack are setting the table. Dean wants to talk to him, but Maya, Victoria, Travis, and Grant walk in. Victoria wants to be invited to a dinner cooked by Grant, while Maya has made plans for her and Grant to try aerial yoga. Travis is not pleased that they are making plans and tells Grant he'll walk him out.
On their way out, Grant wonders if Travis doesn't want him talking to his friends. Travis just didn't realize that he already was talking to and making plans with them. Grant asks if it's a problem. He reminds Travis he can just tell him if he wants to take it more slowly. He can respect that, but he can't respect Travis not talking to him. He's looking for something serious and it's fine if Travis isn't that guy. The only thing he expects is respect. He leaves before Travis can talk to him.
He comes across Ben and Bailey on his way out.

A skyscraper in downtown Seattle caught fire. Station 19 was called after four other stations had already responded to the fire. By the time they arrived, it was still only 15% contained. Ripley sent most of them to floor 25 to work on the active fire, asked Aid Car to help with triage, and said he needed two on crowd control on 28 where they were holding about 100 civilians. As they tapped out station 7, they were warned about falling debris. Charlotte was with them and jumped through a fire to try to get to a fire door. When she didn't reply after jumping through, Andy jumped in after her. She found Charlotte trapped under a fallen vent. Andy used an extinguisher sphere to extinguish the flames and then the others came in to help her free Charlotte. Charlotte tried to stay despite being injured, but Andy called down to have them replaced. On 28, Vic and Maya worked with Molly to keep everyone calm because they couldn't leave the floor. Ben and Travis treated several patients at triage who had been burned. On 26, Jack and Dean found enough explosive material to bring the whole building down, meaning they needed a quick evacuation of the whole building. In order to free the people on 28, Ben and Travis were sent to draw the smoke out of the stairwell so the people could go down. Molly started to lead the first group down, but an explosion startled everyone and they started to run down the stairs. Ben and Travis were knocked over by the blast and Travis was impaled in the chest by one of the shards. Travis believed he was bleeding out and would die before Ben got him down, but Ben decided to drag him down the stairs anyway. Jack and Dean found an employee trapped and asked for an elevator evacuation. Ripley said no, because they couldn't cross the fire line with the elevator. Despite this, Andy took the elevator key and sent it up to Jack and Dean. Then there was an explosion somewhere in the building. On his way down the stairs with Travis, Ben found Molly, who had been trampled by the mob. She had a pneumothorax. Travis told Ben that Molly would die if he didn't get her downstairs and he should save the life he could save. Jack and Dean got their patient onto the elevator, but Jack stayed behind because they hadn't finished closing the fire doors.
