'Station 19' Season 3 Episode 8 Preview: Will Amelia be able to help Sullivan with his addiction troubles?
The last episode of 'Station 19' saw Robert Sullivan (Boris Kodjoe) struggling with his Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) and due to a drug-induced haze, he even saw hallucinations of his "dead" best friend Fire Chief Lucas Ripley (Brett Tucker).
Ripley made him realize that he really needs help. "You are good at almost everything. Except asking for help." Ripley told Sullivan and at the end of the episode, he went to confess his love and ask for help from Andy Herrera (Jaina Lee Ortiz). That, however, didn't work out as Andy simply accused him of being a "bad boss".
Titled 'Born to Run', the next episode might show Sullivan seeking help from 'Grey's Anatomy' doctor Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone).
The official synopsis reads, "The Station 19 crew responds to a drunk driver scene. Meanwhile, Dean receives advice from Pruitt on a difficult situation, and Sullivan seeks help from Dr Amelia Shepherd."
A 30-second promo shows how "the doctors are giving the firefighters some tough love." As Sullivan consults Amelia, she accuses him of using drugs "just to get through the morning".
Fans are waiting to see how their interaction goes. "Omg I'm so excited for Amelia to talk to Robert, like very sad but like I’m happy she is, of all people I’m happy it’s her," one viewer wrote and another said, "Glad to see Amelia talking and sharing her experience about addiction. Great use of her character on Station 19."
Another comment read, "I'm so glad they took Amelia for talking to Robert about is a condition she been through addiction too... Hope is gonna help him."
Moreover, the drunk driving scenes might also spell some drama into the show. Get set to watch the episode this Thursday, March 12, at 8 pm ET on ABC.
