Synopsis >

As Tommy fights back some disturbing visions of Jesus, problems with his illegal sublet, and Sheila's roiling emotions, Lou and Jerry try to convince Chief Perrolli to take him back, an especially difficult task now that the crew has grown fond of the courageous and multi-talented Sully, not to mention Franco's steadfast refusal to forgive him for causing his injuries. However, even when Perrolli offers to relent if the crew unanimously agrees, a vote reveals that Franco isn't the only obstacle in Tommy's way. Meanwhile, after he's told that Uncle Teddy has most likely been killed over his gambling debts, Tommy learns that his father is living in a fancy Park Avenue apartment. And though Tommy disapproves of his marriage to a wealthy Korean widow, his dad refuses to consider giving up his new arrangement. Taking Sully's advice, Mike sets out to win Teresa back, only to have the plan backfire when she gets a restraining order after he takes a swing at her new boyfriend. Needing time to date the nurse who is giving him a steady supply of powerful prescription painkillers, Franco asks Laura to baby-sit his daughter, Keela. Begging off at first, she agrees to help when Franco offers to pick up her bar tab for a night out with her friends. But after showing up back at his house after a few drinks, she makes it clear that she wants to take him to bed. After giving in to pressure from Lou, Franco's reunion with Tommy is interrupted when the crew of 62 Truck is called to fight a fire at an underground gay sex club. But, horrified to discover that a man they found chained to a wall of the club dressed in women's clothes is none other than Sully, when asked to vote again, they unanimously agree to let Tommy return. Finally, as Mike obtains a gun to use in his effort to get Teresa back, Sheila keeps news of her miscarriage a secret from Tommy and her son, Damien.
