On one of the hottest days of the year, the first responders feel the pressure as harrowing incidents keep happening around the city, including a road rage accident involving a van full of tourists, an emergency at an auto-repair shop and a veteran with a live grenade embedded in his leg. Meanwhile, Buck gets a surprise visit from his sister, Maddie. Also, Athena questions her relationship with Bobby. Then, at the fire station, handsome new hire Eddie jeopardizes Buck's chances of being chosen for a fireman calendar.
Shay (Josh Duvendeck), Mitch (Amos Blackmon), and Jessie (Connor Trinneer) would later reappear in the Season Three episode "Fools" where all three are involved in a prank similar to the one shown in this episode.
The episode is titled "Under Pressure", in the final moments of "Pilot" it plays the song Under Pressure by Queen and David Bowie.
