We cut to Sully crawling through what looks like a sewer, waving a flashlight in front of him. Ty calls out to him and we see him, up above, through a street grate. He asks if Sully wants him to call the station and ask for a back-up set of keys. "No!" Sully shouts, clearly distressed. Claustrophobic, much? Ty tries to reason with Sully, but Sully yells at him that if he isn't going to help, to just shut up. Then, miraculously, Sully finds his keys in a pool of icky brown stuff. Since this show is heavy on symbolism, I'm guessing the brown goo is a literary reference or symbolic of poo.
We move on to Kim. Oh, Kim. What would Third Watch be without sweet, conflicted, sex-with-the-ex Kim? She is walking into Jimmy's hospital room, which is equipped with a moody bedside lamp. In a hospital. A set designer stops the scene, walks in, and says, "Oops, sorry, that lamp belongs on the Lifetime network," and takes it away with him. As he wakes, looking like Ben Affleck, Jimmy says, "Brooke?" "No," Kim says, and she even looks happy saying it, as if she's thinking, "While Brooke's away, the ex will play." He asks, in a friendly way, what she's doing there. Instead of saying, "I know you've been shot and all, but I was just hoping to have a nookie session during my break," she is dishonest and makes it sound like he's on her way to wherever it is she's going while on duty. They make some small talk. Jimmy boasts that the doctors are amazed at his recovery. Why, he could be up on his feet in as little as a week. In fact, they estimate, he'll probably be back on duty by 10 p.m. Eastern time next Monday! Kim gets paged. Jimmy engages in some Florence Nightingale Syndrome by complimenting Kim on her hair, which is in a ponytail and getting long. It's like it grew a whole summer's worth in just a few days! Kim's got SuperHair. She says she has to go respond to her pager's call, but that she'll see him on Friday. She gets up to leave and kisses his forehead. Then she leans in for the real kiss, but they both don't commit and it ends up being a lean-in, with no lippage. She gets awkward and says she has to go while Jimmy wonders why he didn't think of this before: the ladies now just come to him and he doesn't even have go anywhere or spend any money. Genius, I tell you. Kim leaves as Jimmy leans back with a little bemused macho look on his face that betrays a touch of yearning. So Kim, tell us, did you grow a conscience along with all that hair?
