As you get yourselves prepared to see Fire Country season 2 episode 8 on CBS in early May, there’s a big selling point to it already. “It’s Not Over” is going to mark the debut of Gabriela’s mother Roberta to the series, and we have heard a little bit about her already.

Basically, a lot of what we are looking at with the character is a matter of perspective. Manny obviously has his own opinion of her, but a lot of that is dramatically informed by a lot of his own experiences. Gabriela may be able to form something different and he recognizes that. Heck, you could even say that on some level, he encourages it!

We had previously anticipated that we would be meeting Roberta around the time of her daughter’s wedding to Diego, so why in this episode? Well, it seems to be tied to a Firefighters’ Ball, and that leaves us with even more questions. For more, just take a look at the official season 2 episode 8 synopsis below:

“It’s Not Over” – With the future of Three Rock in jeopardy, Station 42 and Three Rock host Edgewater’s 22nd Annual Firefighters’ Ball in an effort to impress the governor (Catherine Lough Haggquist) and save the camp. Meanwhile, Gabriela’s mom, Roberta (Paola Nunez), makes a surprise appearance at the event, on FIRE COUNTRY, Friday, May 3 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network, and streaming on Paramount+ (live and on-demand for Paramount+ with SHOWTIME subscribers, or on-demand for Paramount+ Essential subscribers the day after the episode airs)*.

By the end of this episode, it is really just our hope that we have a chance to see a few surprises that we genuinely do not expect. After all, we personally do think this show is better when they can bring to the table a few elements that catch us by surprise!

For the record, we’re also still rooting for Bode and Gabriela; maybe seeing her mother will help her to realize more what she wants out of her own future family.
