In this exclusive video from next Tuesday’s Season 5 premiere (NBC, 10/9c), Gabby confides in Herrmann her fears about little Louie becoming an orphan again due to her and boyfriend Casey’s dangerous professions.

“Casey and I are running into the same burning building,” she muses, tearfully. “And sometimes, things go wrong, and if they do, then Louie’s… alone again.”

“You just discovered the hardest part of this job for any of us mothers [and] fathers,” Herrmann responds, before reassuring her, “You are a great firefighter, and you are a great mother. You got this.”
