As if Station 19 wasn’t going to let Sullivan keep fighting fires.
Tonight’s episode revealed the fate of the former battalion chief (Boris Kodjoe), who was suspended when he turned himself in for stealing narcotics from the PRT truck. While the rest of the team was battling an electrical fire at an apartment building (which was the home of several incredible drag queens), a hearing was being held at the fire station to determine whether Sullivan could keep his career.
It was a rough one. Emmett (Lachlan Buchanan) tried to be complimentary, but it’s hard to make “he subtly threatened me to stay quiet” sound good. Ben (Jason George) had to face the fact that he waited too long to report Sullivan, and former Chief Dixon (Pat Healy) returned to be a jerk and do his best to take Sullivan down. But Sullivan’s new sponsor, Richard (James Pickens Jr.) gave one of his classic speeches about how hard it is to battle addiction and while Ben lost the PRT, he did have a lot of support to give.
Finally, when things were looking a little too dire, the rest of the squad showed up to stand like models and speech their faces off about how important Sullivan is to them.
