After Dani handed in her resignation to Chief Scotty in Episode Four, Episode Five opens with Chief Scotty contemplating his upcoming decision between whether to choose Tim or Griffin for the EMT job. Everyone at the EMT house is concerned that Duke hasn’t shown up for work yet. The scene cuts to Dani sadly contemplating her life in her apartment and looking at a list of potential jobs.

Back at the county rescue house, Tim agrees to get lunch for everyone, but he stops at Dani’s place, where she’s sitting outside reading a book. Tim chastises Dani for quitting. She asks him why should he care, reminding Tim that he’s the one who told her it’s everyone for himself. I can’t compete with the Fire Chief’s son, Griffin, and the new “hometown hero,” Tim, Dani says. However, Tim reminds her of the call she thought she received from God to be an EMT rescuer. He adds that God sometimes surprises us with the ways things work out. Our job is to remain “faithful” to God’s call on our lives, he notes. Dani’s not buying Tim’s arguments, however. Despite that, Tim tells her before leaving, You’ll always be a rescuer to me.

A conversation with her mom leads Dani to call out to Ashley, the lead female EMT at the rescuer house. At her apartment, Dani explains the situation to Ashley, and they pray together.

The next morning, Dani shows up at the EMT building, ready to compete her last ET training shift. That’s good, Chief Scotty tells her, because he hasn’t turned in her resignation yet. Something told him, he tells Dani, that she was going to complete her promise to him anyway to compete her 20 shifts with the county fire department in Nashville.
