Billy Burke got a TVLine Performer of the Week Honorable Mention for his tremendous performance in yesterday’s episode of Fire Country! The mid season finale, directed by cast member Kevin Alejandro, is now available on Paramount+. The show will be back on January 6 with “fun surprises” as Billy himself told us last month.
“Fire Country fans probably dreaded ever laying witness to how Vince reacted to daughter Riley’s years-ago death in real time. This week, Billy Burke in flashback was tasked with exploring that immeasurable grief, and he made it every bit the gut punch we assumed. From doubling over at the fiery, horrific crash scene to grilling son Bode over his responsibility for the tragedy, and then lashing out at Luke for being the ‘fun uncle,’ Vince was overcome with wave after wave of anguish, desperately pointing fingers. Meanwhile in the present-day scenes, Burke communicated just how affected Vince was by the not-dissimilar car crash at hand — to the point he’d try to risk his own life to save another couple’s kids.”
