Aired Thursday 9:00 PM Nov 11, 2002 on NBCAbout:
When a fire breaks out in the supermarket where Bosco and his mother Rose are doing some late night shopping, Bosco rescues most of the shoppers but cannot save a young mother when she goes back inside to retrieve her purse. After Jimmy tells him that the fire was probably deliberately set, Bosco is convinced that he saw the arsonist in the crowd outside after the fire. Sgt. Cruz gets Bosco and Faith assigned to the Anti-Crime Unit for a few days so that they can track the guy down. At the scene of another supermarket fire the next night, Faith takes down license plate numbers, Cruz photographs the crowd and cars at the scene, and Bosco nabs the man he saw in the crowd the night before. The man turns out to be a fire buff, but Faith and Cruz's work bears fruit and they find their arsonist -- the son of Doug Maple, an NYFD arson investigator. A depressed Sully is still on leave, drinking too much, and sleeping on the couch at Ty's and Carlos' apartment; Doc connects with an attractive woman whose friend was injured in the fire; Ty continues to chafe under Hancock's thumb; Bosco can't understand why his mother would rather have a son who's alive than a son who's a hero until he learns some lessons about parental love from Faith and Doug Maple.
