‘Station 19’ Season 5 Finale Date Set and It’s Not a ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Crossover, Here’s Why — HN

ABC announced the Station 19 Season 5 finale date, and it’s shocking news — it’s not a Grey’s Anatomy crossover event! Many fans couldn’t bear to watch another crossover. Instead, viewers get one full hour of Station 19 Season 5 Episode 18 with Jaina Lee Ortiz, Grey Damon, Boris Kodjoe, Barrett Doss, Jason George, Jay Hayden, Carlos Miranda, Danielle Savre, and Stefania Spampinato.

When is the ‘Station 19’ Season 5 finale?

The Station 19 Season 5 finale airs on ABC on Wednesday, May 19, 2022, at 8 p.m. ET. Although ABC generally kept Station 19 and Grey’s Anatomy on the same finale week schedule, this spring, the lineup changed. Station 19 Season 5 finale airs on May 19, but Grey’s Anatomy scores a stand-alone two-hour finale for season 18 on May 26. The medical drama also celebrates its 400th episode that evening, so that’s probably why it gets a stand-alone conclusion.

‘Station 19’ Season 5 finale, ‘Crawl Out Through the Fallout’ — What to Expect
The Station 19 Season 5 finale will continue to follow Andy Herrera (Ortiz) as she prepares for her mansl*ughter trial. In episode 14, Jeremy s**ually a**aulted Andy after a flirtatious evening at the bar. However, Andy fought off his aggressive *ttack and ran away. In episode 15, Sullivan, Maya, and Vic treat Jeremy in the field, but he d*es at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. Then, in the last few minutes of “When The Party’s Over,” officers arr*st Andy.

In episode 16, Fire Chief Natasha Ross (Merle Dandridge) suspended her pending the trial results. Then in Station 19 Episode 17, Andy received good news from her attorney, Luisa Berrol (Jennifer Jalene). The court agreed to allow Andy’s colleagues to testify in her case.

“Andy tracks down a witness to testify at her trial,” the Station 19 Season 5 finale ABC press release reads. “Meanwhile, Carina and Maya deal with a stressful situation, and the crew responds to a car wreck.”

In the season finale, Andy continues to fight by finding a witness to testify on her behalf. Since her storyline does not involve a hospital, it’s hard to see where Grey’s Anatomy characters might fit, so it’s no surprise that it’s not a crossover event.

Also, in the finale, Carina and Maya tackle a “stressful situation.” This synopsis is likely about their attempts to conceive a baby. In episode 16, Jack contributed sp*rm to home ins*mination. However, during the ordeal, he finds out that he has a brother, who he meets in episode 17.

Since it’s a firefighting show, the Station 19 Season 5 finale will also likely include a life or d*ath situation with the car crash that ends in a cliffhanger. Sorry fans, it’s what they do.

Is ‘Station 19’ renewed?
Luckily, Station 19 Season 6 is a sure thing. ABC renewed the firefighter drama for another season on Jan. 11, 2022. The network also inked a new deal with Ellen Pompeo for another season of Grey’s Anatomy, so both Shondaland shows return in the fall of 2022.

“It’s a privilege to tell stories of our heroic first responders, who on our show and in real life put their lives on the line every day to keep us all safe,” Vernoff told Deadline. “I’m so grateful to Disney and ABC for the early pickup for season six of Station 19! It’s a tribute to the incredible work of our talented cast, crew, writers, and creative team, as well as the dedication of our loyal fans who tune in every week.”

Don’t miss the Station 19 Season 5 finale on May 19, 2022, on ABC.

Things Are Heating up for Andy on ‘Station 19’ as Her Trial Looms Large, What Did She Do? — HN

According to RAINN (R**e, Ab*se & Incest National Network), “1 out of every 6 American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed r**e in her lifetime (14.8% completed, 2.8% attempted).” During the March 31 episode of Station 19 titled “Alone in the Dark,” Andy Herrera (Jaina Lee Ortiz) became a statistic when she was att*cked.

Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on how you look at it, Andy accidentally k*lled her att*cker while she was fending him off. Charged with mansl*ughter, Andy is gearing up for a trial that will decide her fate and her future. Let’s revisit what happened that horrible night. Who did Andy k*ll on Station 19? Let’s get into it.

Who did Andy k*ll on ‘Station 19’?
When Natasha Ross (Merle Dandridge) took over as fire chief, change was inevitable. No one could have predicted that one major update would be shutting down Station 23, where Andy was transferred from Station 19. During a last hurrah out at a bar with the crew from Station 23, it was discovered that Andy might have had a small hand in getting Station 23 shut down.

Andy revealed to Natasha that Station 23 was too much of a “boys club” and she wanted to return to Station 19, where her father once worked. Unbeknownst to Andy, Natasha was making budget cuts, and this was the nudge she needed to decide to close all of Station 23. When the crew discovered this while at the bar, they left Andy who already had a pretty solid buzz going.

Obviously being dr*nk has little to do with what happens later, after Andy is approached by Jeremy (Daniel Di Tomasso), a fellow fire fighter. A few drinks/kisses later, the two stumble out of the bar. When Jeremy decides to advance things a bit further, Andy politely declines.

“Why are you being such a b*tch?” Jeremy asks.

“Why are you being such an *ss?” Andy responds.

The next thing we know, Andy is f*rced against a wall by Jeremy, but she’s able to defend herself and in doing so, accidentally k*lls him.

Andy is charged with mansl*ughter and is currently out on bail awaiting trial. In the meantime, her life has somehow gotten even more complicated. Andy just can’t catch a break.

What else is going on in Andy’s life?
Andy’s estranged mother, Elena Herrera (Patricia De Leon), has resurfaced and the timing couldn’t be better or more bitter. Her mother left when Andy was just 9 years old, but Andy’s father claimed Elena got sick and died. The truth was, Elena was also a firefighter and she resented Andy because she was taking Elena away from doing the thing she loved. Not only that, but Andy’s father (a firefighter as well) was able to keep working uninterrupted. It was all too much for Elena, who chose to leave so she could pursue her life’s passion.

Andy’s aunt told Elena what was going on, who rightfully (if not dramatically), came back to support Andy. In Episode 16, titled “Death and the Maiden,” Andy is processing the way in which rac*sm and s*xism are intersecting in both her job and during the criminal proceedings leading up to her trial. She’s also on the receiving end of the court of public opinion, writ large on social media. It’s a lot.

“Men have this way of really over concerning themselves with my life,” Andy says to Chief Ross.

“That’s endemic. In FD, in the military, a cashier at a grocery store. My entire career, two industries, multiple cities, and it’s the same thing. That’s why it’s taken me long to get this far,” Ross replies.

Now things are coming to a head for Andy. The break we knew was coming, and possibly the break Andy needed, came at the end of this episode when she goes home to find her mother. They pull a Meredith Grey and dance it out, as Andy sobs in her mother’s arms. So much has to happen in the Season 5 finale. We are really rooting for Andy.

Did Station 19 Just Set Travis Up To Make A Big Move? — HN

Evil forces were at play again on Station 19.

Spoiler alert! This story contains spoilers for Station 19’s Season 5 episode “Death and the Maiden.”

Michael Dixon (Pat Healy) has always been bad news for the firefighters of Station 19. From the shady way he got promoted to Seattle fire chief to refusing to help Pruitt Herrera when he contracted cancer, Dixon’s presence on our screens by now should only elicit groans from the audience, if not a more violent reaction. Of all the characters, it’s arguably been the worst for Travis (Jay Hayden), as he had to deal with Dixon on a personal level when he was dating his son Emmett. Travis almost reached his breaking point when he found out Dixon was running for mayor, and now the events of “Death and the Maiden” may have put the wheels in motion for Travis to make a huge move.

After the firefighters saved some workers from being burned alive where they were being held captive in a factory, Dixon showed up to do what he does best — get his friends (in this case, the owner of the supposedly abandoned building) out of trouble. Travis became enraged and nearly got physical with the mayoral candidate when trying to make new fire chief Natasha aware of Dixon’s history. After conversations with both Natasha and Theo — who is now officially a firefighter with Station 19! — could Travis be considering running for mayor against Dixon?

It seems like a little bit of a stretch, as Travis has no political background and no career aspirations other than to keep saving lives as a firefighter. Natasha reminded him that since he hadn’t wanted to take the lieutenant’s test, he had actively avoided putting himself in a situation to better effect change. I think Travis is angry enough to step up, and let’s be honest — even with no experience in politics, we can all agree that nobody would be a worse mayor than Dixon, right?

Travis himself voiced it as an option after Theo’s parable about the snake and the saw. Getting mad and lashing out at Dixon wasn’t going to help, so they had to figure out a realistic way to take the man down. Travis said:

What am I supposed to do? Run against him?

Theo said maybe, and that won’t be the end of the conversation, because as long as Dixon’s around, he’s going to be bad news for Station 19. Dixon said previously that if he were elected mayor, the first thing he would do would be to end the station’s Crisis One program that Dean Miller started before his death. So already he’s made promises to hurt our heroes.

I love that Travis is willing to fight back, and I trust that he won’t back down until Dixon is no longer a threat. Jay Hayden’s co-star Danielle Savre definitely seemed to be on board with Travis’ possible entry into politics:

There’s only one more episode of Station 19 before the Season 5 finale, but it’s not all bad news, because our favorite Seattle firefighter drama has already been renewed for a sixth season. Station 19 returns at 8 p.m. ET next Thursday, May 12, on ABC. Keep up with all the shows approaching their season finales with our spring finale schedule, and be sure to check out our 2022 TV Schedule to see which shows are premiering soon.

‘Station 19’: Everything You Need to Know About Andy and Her Mom, Elena Herrera — HN

In Station 19 Season 5 Episode 16, “Death and the Maiden,” Andy Herrera’s (Jaina Lee Ortiz) mom, Elena, returns to the ABC drama. She heads to the fire station looking for her daughter after hearing the news that the police arrested Andy for allegedly k*lling Jeremy (Daniel Di Tomasso). In season 5 episode 15, the man who s**ually assaulted and attacked Andy died. In the last moments of the hour, police officers arrested Andy for manslaughter despite her self-defense statement. Andy’s mother returns as a guest star after nearly two seasons without an appearance (aside from flashbacks). Here’s the refresher recap viewers need regarding everything between Andy and her mom in Station 19.

Who plays Andy’s mom in ‘Station 19’?
Patricia De León plays Andy’s mom, Elena Herrera, in Station 19. Viewers might recognize her from the HBO Max TV series, Generation or the FX series, Mayans M.C. According to IMDb, she also made appearances in NCIS: Los Angeles, Stumptown, NCIS, Men of a Certain Age, and Cold Case.

What happened to Andy’s mom?
For most of Andy’s life in Station 19, she believed that her mother died when she was nine. However, in Station 19 Season 3 Episode 16, Andy goes to her aunt’s house and finds her mother still alive. Viewers had to wait all summer to find out what happened when Andy reunited with Elena.

Then in the Station 19 Season 4 season premiere, Andy listened to her mother explain how she never wanted a child. People insisted that Elena would change her mind once she had her daughter. Although Elena loved Andy, her mental health declined after having her baby. She tried to stay, but no one talked about depression and Elena didn’t know what to do.

“I felt hopeless,” Elena explained to Andy. “I felt like a failure and I wanted to die because there was no way out. There was not a way out that wouldn’t destroy you. But I loved you. I still love you, Andy.”

Andy left after hearing that her father, Pruitt, begged Elena to return to their family after 9-11, but she refused. That was the last time Andy saw her mother until Station 19 returned on May 5 for season 5 episode 16.

Why is Andy’s mom back?

Before Andy’s mom returns in Station 19 Season 5 Episode 16, it’s important to recap the flashback from the previous episode. In episode 15, Andy remembered a time when a boy hit her. Elena insisted that Andy receive self-defense training from another firefighter so that if it happened again, she could defend herself.

It looks like Andy’s mom is back in Station 19 to help support Andy in the manslaughter case against her. Will Andy and Elena reconcile?

Station 19 airs at 8 p.m. ET, followed by Grey’s Anatomy at 9 p.m.

‘Station 19’ Season 5 Episode 16 Recap: Pat Healy Returns, Is Andy Herrera Leaving? — HN

ABC’s Station 19 Season 5 Episode 16 recap of “The Death and the Maiden” begins with a manslaughter charge for Andy Herrera (Jaina Lee Ortiz). Jack (Grey Damon) supports Andy after the court releases her on bail. However, two guest stars shake things up as the ABC drama continues. Pat Healy returns to the Station 19 Season 5 cast to run for mayor. Plus, Robert Sullivan (Boris Kodjoe) and Vic Hughes (Barrett Doss) get a surprise visit from Andy’s mother, Elena (Patricia De Leon). Also, Fire Chief Natasha Ross (Merle Dandridge) believes Andy should be suspended. Station 19 Season 5 Episode 16 proves to be a rough episode for the firefighters — Find our full recap below.

[Warning: This article contains spoilers about Station 19 Season 5 Episode 16, “The Death and the Maiden.”]

‘Station 19’ Season 5 Episode 16 recap: Is Andy Herrera leaving?

ABC’s Station 19 lost one cast member in season 5 — Okieriete Onaodowan chose to leave the series. Viewers worry that Andy could leave Station 19 because of the charges against her; however, rest assured that she won’t go down without a fight. Andy pleads not guilty when Judge H. Pendleton informs her of the manslaughter charge. He sets bail at $100,000. Then Andy reads the enormous amount of comments on the newspaper articles about her. Most blame her for being a tease and say that “the world’s no longer safe for men.” Thankfully, Vic stays with Andy to support her after the assault and charges.

Vic tells Andy that Natasha Ross assigned Theo Ruiz to Station 19 after the closing of Station 23. However, the fire chief did not give an assignment to Andy yet.

At first, Natasha and Andy discuss how hard it is for women to move up in the world. Then Andy insists to Natasha that she’s anxious to get back to work. However, the policy is that a firefighter charged with a felony is not allowed to work. Natasha informs her that she is on temporary suspension pending the outcome of a trial. But Andy insists it’s the system that is broken because she’s a woman of color. Andy is not leaving the TV series Station 19, but she is suspended from being a firefighter at the station until the trial is over.

Andy’s mom returns in ‘Station 19’ Season 5 Episode 16
Robert Sullivan thanks Vic Hughes for keeping Andy company as Elena, Andy’s mother, comes searching for her in Station 19 Season 5 Episode 16. Sullivan and Vic are shocked to hear that she is Andy’s mother. Sullivan talks to her about whether it’s a good idea for her to see Andy. Elena insists its for support. She shows up at Andy’s home and her daughter is happy to see her and have mother’s shoulder to cry on. Elena reveals that a fellow firefighter also s**ually a**aulted her. She praises Andy for fighting the man off. Elena never told anyway because her coworkers told her it would only make the fire department look terrible. Andy worries that being on leave from the station is already a guilty verdict. Then her mother makes her dance to get out of her head.

‘Station 19’ Season 5 Episode 16 recap: Maya and Carina’s baby update
Later in Station 19 Season 5 Episode 16, Carina (Stefania Spampinato) looks at the marks on her body from months of fertility shots. Then Jack shows up with flowers for Carina and Maya (Danielle Savre) to awkwardly celebrate their official invitro fertilization date. However, they don’t head to hospital. As many fans were worried about, they elect for a home insemination. Right as Jack is about to donate his sperm, his genetic testing app alerts him that he has a brother.

Carina worries that Jack shouldn’t be the donor now that he has a family. However, Maya talks her into following through. Then Carina cries through everything and runs into Jack while he’s holding the cup of sperm. Maya finally gets Carina in the mood and grabs the sperm.

Pat Healy returns to ‘Station 19’ — Michael Dixon runs for mayor
A disturbing scene in Station 19 Season 5 Episode 16 occurs when the firefighters watch former corrupt fire chief Michael Dixon run for mayor. The situation truly bothers Travis; although Ruiz thought he was bummed about the breakup with Emmett Dixon (Lachlan Buchanon), Michael’s son.

Beckett assigns 19 for search and rescue at a fire call. They discover a security guard and it looks like a sweat shop. Pablo admits that there’s a hidden room on a second floor with people trapped inside. Although the owner of the building swears there is no one in there, Travis and Theo find the hidden room locked and break out the women.

Mai explains that the women aren’t allowed outside the building, so she had a sewing accident stitched up inside. When Michael Dixon shows up, Travis tells the fire chief that the women are being held hostage. However, Dixon insists they have a right to tell their side of the story, like the owner of the building does. They are taking them to Seattle Grace Memorial Hospital and hooking them up with an immigration attorney. However, Travis believes the fire fighters aren’t doing enough to help them.

Theo calms Travis down by telling an odd animal story about a snake. The only way to take down Dixon is to use his brain not his rage. Will Travis run for office against Dixon? It was suggested.

In the last ten minutes, Natasha tells Sullivan he’s blurring the lines of personal and professional.

According to IMDb, Station 19 airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. EST on ABC, before Grey’s Anatomy.

‘Station 19’: Why Fans Hate the Carina and Maya Storyline in Season 5 — HN

In Station 19 Season 5, Carina DeLuca (Stefania Spampinato) and Maya (Danielle Savre) decide they want to have a baby. However, things become complicated when they discuss who might be their sperm donor. In ABC‘s Station 19 Season 5 Episode 15, Maya and Carina asked Jack (Grey Damon) to be their sperm donor. However, fans hate the storyline — here’s a breakdown of why.

One ‘Station 19’ director shared a spoiler about Maya and Carina in Season 5 Episode 16
On April 27, Editor and Director of Station 19, David Greenspan, replied to a tweet from a fan about Marina. The viewer wanted to know his opinion of his favorite Marina — Carina and Maya — episode in season 5.

“My other season 5 favorite Marina episode is coming up soon… 516,” Greenspan tweeted. “But I have a feeling the fandom won’t agree.”

The director indicated that Station 19 Season 5 Episode 16 holds some of his favorite scenes between Maya and Carina. However, the “fandom” probably won’t like the episode because many fans do not want Jack to become Marina’s sperm donor.

Why fans hate Jack as Carina and Maya’s sperm donor in ‘Station 19’
Maya cheated on Carina with Jack in Station 19 Season 3 Episode 15. However, Carina agreed to use Jack’s sperm for their Marina baby two seasons later. The show glossed over the cheating but discussed sperm donation for several episodes.

Viewers hated the cheating storyline, but they disliked the Jack-as-a-sperm-donor storyline even more (if that’s even possible). Fans do not like the negative bisexual representation. Many viewers on Reddit agree with one specific tweet to describe their feelings.

“S19 has written a story about two queer women having a baby together that is somehow not about two queer women having a baby together at all,” the tweet read.

Instead, the writers pulled a man into the mix of this beautiful story between two women. Additionally, the thread of tweets cited many examples where this same harmful stereotype happened in other TV shows. Fans wanted more for their favorite couple in Station 19.

Viewers compare the ‘Station 19’ storyline to ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Teddy/Owen/Tom
Many fans also noted that the problem is not with the known sperm donation for Carina and Maya in Station 19. The root of the issue is that Maya has a history with Jack, like Teddy has a history with Tom in Grey’s Anatomy.

“Think of it in terms of a straight couple, and they were having fertility issues,” one Redditor wrote. “Teddy cheated on Owen with Tom. Would Owen & Teddy go and ask Tom for his sperm and welcome him to the family as a third parent?”

Viewers who watch both Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19 understand the reference. There’s no way that Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) would agree to a sperm donation from Tom Koracick (Greg Germann after finding out that Teddy Altman (Kim Raver) cheated with Tom.

Many viewers hope that Marina does not follow through with their choice to involve Jack in their baby plans.

Station 19 Season 5 Episode 16 returns on Thursday, May 5, at 8 p.m. ET, on ABC.

Why Isn’t a New Episode of Station 19 on Tonight? (April 28) — HN

We are waiting patiently for the return of Station 19 Season 5. Is that going to happen tonight, Thursday, April 28? When is the series back?

We’ve gone two weeks so far with our favorite TGIT lineup not being what it usually is. Not only have we not had new episodes of Station 19, but we also haven’t had any reruns. Is that going to change this week?

There is a lot of bad news tonight. There isn’t a new episode of the series. We’ll need to wait a little longer to see what’s going to happen to Andy after she accidentally k*lled a man (albeit in self-defense).

There isn’t even going to be a rerun tonight. The lack of rerun is the reason for the lack of new episode.

Why isn’t a new episode of Station 19 on tonight?
ABC will air the NFL draft tonight. It’s not possible to air two things at once, and the NFL draft is likely to be bigger for the live ratings than scripted content. This is normal every year.

The break is also due to scheduling, and the NFL draft has come at the right time. There are only three episodes of the series left, and we know that the finale is set for Thursday, May 19. ABC needs to make sure there are enough episodes for the weeks left.

When will Station 19 return with new episodes?
We don’t have much longer left to wait for the series to return. It is going to be back next Thursday, May 5.

This is something we were warned about right away. At the end of the previous episode, ABC immediately brought us a promo that said when the show would return with new episodes. It is just annoying that we’ve had to wait considering the long winter hiatus we got earlier this year.

The show will return with Andy’s storyline at the forefront. She’s facing charges of m*rder, but will she be able to prove that it was all in self-defense?

The Best Station 19 Episode Ever According To Fans — HN

The “Grey’s Anatomy” spinoff “Station 19,” which began airing in 2018, grew into an independently popular show within its first couple of seasons, now making the list of top-rated shows on Thursday nights (per Deadline). Following its predecessor’s approach, “Station 19” follows the personal and professional lives of the first responders who work with the fictional Station 19 in Seattle.

With its ongoing Season 5 and a renewal for its next season already confirmed (per TVLine), the series has formed an unquestionable place among ABC’s shows. Whether it is Andy’s (Jaina Lee Ortiz) brilliant leadership of the group (and as the narrator in the show), the life-threatening situations that keep the viewers on the edge of their seats, or the dramatic turns in the characters’ personal lives that make the narrative more interesting, the show delivers on all fronts.

But with several seasons already to choose from, is there an episode that portrays everything that the show is popular and beloved for? It looks like Station 19 fans might have found one such episode that speaks to them, not only because it contains nail-biting drama, but also because it takes into account one thing that the two Shondaland series are known for: taking cues from real-life situations and weaving them into the show’s storyline.

Fans call the Season 4 winter finale the best Edison

A terrifying situation arises in the Season 4 episode “Out of Control” when the crew is called to action by a Black woman claiming that her daughter and her friend have been kidnapped. She tells the Station 19 crew that she tracked her daughter’s phone to a house nearby, but the alleged kidnapper calls the cops on her for trespassing. The police called to the scene don’t believe her.

Just then, a fire breaks out in the house’s basement. The firefighters rescue the kidnapped girls inside, but the k*dnappers still deny the accusations of abduction. A cop’s visible bias against the woman and the girls heightens the tension that explodes into an altercation between the firefighters and the police, landing the mother and two firefighters in jail.

A Reddit thread claimed this to be the best episode of the series, and several “Station 19” fans chimed in to agree. U/lovemeaux wrote, “Easily best episode ever of Station 19. it was so much tho. The Mom, the girls, Dean, Sullivan- emotionally [it] was a powerhouse and i was on the edge the entire time.”

Redditors also applauded the show for its portrayal of the different responders to the situation, which created so much of the tension in the episode. U/richtermani wrote, “I like how the cops are portrayed. Maybe it’ll raise awareness for their behavior towards the people they are supposed to help.”

Fans commended the episode for its bold portrayal of the fraught situation, earning it the title of the best episode of “Station 19” so far. We’ll have to wait until later this year to see if this season’s finale can take that spot.

Sadly, Station 19 Season 5 Episode 16 is not new tonight, April 21, 2022. However, the good news is that there’s a full preview and synopsis from ABC to break down in the meantime. Station 19 Season 5 Episode 15 left viewers wondering whether Andy Herrera (Jaina Lee Ortiz) will go to jail for the death of Jeremy (Daniel Di Tomasso). Although she hit him in self-defense after a s**ual assault, Jeremy is dead, and Herrera is under arrest. Here’s our breakdown of the preview for Station 19 Season 5 Episode 16, “Death and the Maiden.”

[Warning: This article contains light spoilers about Station 19 Season 5 Episode 16.]

Why isn’t Station 19 new tonight, April 21, 2022?
According to ABC’s schedule, Station 19 Season 5 is not new tonight, April 21. Last week Shondaland fans received a special treat — Throwback Thursday. However, tonight, there’s no such luck. ABC airs Jumanji: The Next Level in place of Station 19 and Grey’s Anatomy.

When does ‘Station 19’ Season 5 return with episode 16?
Viewers must wait until May 5 at 8 p.m. ET to see Station 19 return to Thursday night with a new episode on ABC.

“Andy’s fate remains unknown as a trial date is set,” the ABC synopsis reads. “Meanwhile, Vic and Sullivan are approached by an unexpected guest, and the crew responds to a row of townhouses on fire.”

The press release also indicated that guest stars for the evening include Patricia De León as Elena Herrera, Josh Randall as Sean Beckett, and Merle Dandridge as Natasha Ross.

What to expect when Season 5 Episode 16 returns
The Station 19 Season 5 Episode 16 preview begins with Judge H. Pendleton informing Andy of the charges against her.

“You’ve been charged with manslaughter in the first degree,” the judge tells Andy. “How do you plead?”

She pleads not guilty, and then the judge sets bail at $100,000. Then, Jack (Grey Damon) hugs Andy after she walks out of King County Central Jail. However, the local news brandishes her as a killer.

Meanwhile, Fire Chief Natasha Ross (Merle Dandridge) informs her that a firefighter charged with a felony should be suspended. When Andy protests that she didn’t rob a bank, Natasha counters with the fact that she killed a man (despite that it was self-defense). In another scene, Andy’s mother, Elena (Patricia De Leon), comes searching for her. Robert Sullivan (Boris Kodjoe) and Vic Hughes (Barrett Doss) do not look happy to see Elena.

For most of Andy’s life, she believed that her mother died when she was nine. However, in Station 19 Season 3 Episode 16, Andy finds that her mother is still alive. Viewers had to wait all summer to find out what happened when Andy reunited with Elena. Then in the Station 19 Season 4 season premiere, Andy listened to her mother explain how she never wanted a child. Andy left after hearing that her father, Pruitt, begged Elena to return to their family after 9-11, but she refused. That was the last time Andy saw her mother until Station 19 returns on May 5 for season 5 episode 16.
