Maya has actually fallen to her lowest place.
By the top of Station 19 Season 6 Episode 6, Maya had reached a brand new low level and was in jeopardy, however nobody was there to seek out her. And it was after she pushed herself previous her limits on a name.
The others reached a breaking level with Beckett, Ross proved to be an awesome mentor to Vic, and Travis could have derailed his marketing campaign.
Many feelings had been circulating with this installment because the group responded to a case worthy of our funding, and the non-public arcs obtained extra difficult throughout the board.
If there was hope for some decision with any of the storylines by the autumn finale, the hour put that to mattress. We’re left in limbo with all the pieces they’ve introduced us.
Travis’ marketing campaign took a flip for the worst, exhibiting how fickle politics are and the way simply an individual can fall from grace.
The smear marketing campaign Dixon lodged in opposition to Travis could have confirmed efficient. Dixon obtained into the ear of the firefighting union, whereas Travis took as a right that they’d perceive his tardiness and arguably dismissive habits towards the assembly.
A crappy captain is a kiss of dying. I do know as a result of I used to be one.
Worse but, Travis’ outbursts might rapidly get used to supporting the notion that he is some belligerent man with anger points. He is so proof against Eli, and I want to grasp the purpose of hiring the person if he isn’t going to hearken to something he says.
This can be a turning level for him, and we’ll additionally see that Travis genuinely needs to win this. Up till this level, it felt like he was alongside for the journey and detached. However this will have lit a hearth underneath him.
The hour was about taking motion in that method and having a renewed sense of objective in some capability.
The fireplace camp program lit a hearth underneath Jack, and we noticed that spark in him that we hadn’t seen for a bit. He was so good with the ladies, and he is a pure within the place of a mentor. He has such a soothing, encouraging high quality to him.
He is nonetheless a bit misplaced as of late, however he looks like he is discovered his objective once more, and as of late, when somebody like Vic presents phrases of encouragement about his household state of affairs and the way to method issues, he tends to imagine it.
We nonetheless do not know if he’ll attain out to his sister and attempt to work via a few of his combined emotions concerning his organic mother and father. But it surely would not appear to be it hurts him as a lot to debate it.
I beloved that he opened as much as Vic about it. She’s an awesome sounding board for expressing emotions and at all times looks like a secure area. Plus, with Dean gone, Vic and Jack really feel extra tied collectively than ever. And their friendship at all times feels particular and endearing.
It was a superb episode for Vic. She was a pure with these women whereas instructing them about firefighting, however she shined finest when she talked them via saving that household.
Vic, regardless of being extremely sensible, you’re extremely dramatic.
Satirically, Vic approached Ross, impressed by her story, and professing to not discover her pocket or get that very same feeling. However the entire time, she was proving that she discovered her calling with the hearth camp and her management and mentoring expertise.
She additionally confirmed that she’s the perfect individual to run disaster one. Vic has most likely had a few of the finest development out of all of the characters, and it is a pleasure to see her shine and get her due.
She’s in place as of late, personally and professionally. She’s pal, girlfriend, firefighter, and paramedic.
She’s come a good distance as a personality, however she’s maintained that softness that makes her so quintessentially Victoria Hughes. Too usually, particularly as a lady, her qualities can be utilized to make her the butt of jokes or indicate that she’s not reduce out for issues.
However I really like how Ross expressed how Vic’s empathy, compassion, excessive feelings, and so forth are amongst her finest traits. All of this stuff are property for Vic as a substitute of liabilities.
Her moments with the ladies had been among the many strongest of the hour, particularly when she reminded them after the demanding occasion that their feelings and emotions had been legitimate and okay.
It was important to see and listen to that, particularly in a program designed to get extra girls into the sphere. I really like how she inspired these women to be themselves, validated them, and confirmed that being a lady within the space would not require them to forego what which means and might appear to be.
Whether or not she realized it or not, she impressed Ross, too. Vic and Ross are a dynamic. I did not notice I wanted this a lot, they usually had been so good collectively.
Ross was at her best possible throughout this installment. I want they spent extra time leaning into this a part of who she is as a lady in energy, boss, and mentor as a substitute of limiting her with the Sullivan plot and messiness.
She’s an awesome mentor after they showcase it correctly. We have seen it earlier than with Andy. Maybe, we’ll get to see extra of that facet of Ross now that she’s concluded that issues can by no means work along with her and Sullivan.
It looks as if she’s opened her eyes to the state of affairs. She is aware of they can’t be collectively the best way they’d like, and it isn’t truthful for both to hold on with the sneaking round.
She additionally felt extra conscious than ever of how all of this might impression her as a lady in her place. It is one thing she continuously has to contemplate. Ross is not unfamiliar with the sexism that bleeds via of their discipline.
However possibly one thing about seeing these younger women made her need higher for them.
And we are able to all agree that we would like higher for Maya proper now.
It is reached some extent the place nobody can ignore how unwell she is, they usually had been fairly vocal about it.
Theo has been on one, criticizing Beckett at each flip due to how he is dealing with issues with Maya and expressing his concern about her well-being. Ben was on the identical web page about issues, too.
Beckett and Maya had been each inflicting points in several methods on the helicopter referred to as. It was already a harrowing sufficient ordeal that had its tragedies.
It was heartbreaking when the one pilot died, particularly when he began mentioning how he might see his lifeless father. You might inform his dying gutted Andy.
And Joshua’s case was contact and go, and he left an impression, too. Ben most likely wanted to listen to Joshua’s admission about how he grew to resent his spouse and handled her horribly, however he now regrets it.
Ben has been resenting Bailey quite a bit just lately, and all of it stems from how upset he’s that he has to journey the desk now, principally.
However Beckett was past an ineffectual chief within the discipline. His name to go away Joshua behind was heartless and confirmed a lack of knowledge of his group.
And there was no method on earth that Maya ought to’ve been on the scene. Beckett did not even put up a struggle when Andy took over and began calling the pictures. It is like, deep down, he is aware of that he is a poor chief and would not have any struggle in him anymore.
Maya pushed herself properly previous her limits, and it was affecting her efficiency within the discipline. She appeared exhausted and did not seem like somebody on the high of her efficiency and recreation.
Maya was offended at Andy, however she’s offended on a regular basis now, so what else is new?
Andy has been making an attempt to assist, one thing that Theo and others have tried to do as properly. However Maya would not need assist, and he or she’s nonetheless satisfied she’s okay, and everybody else is the issue.
It is nerve-wracking to see her like this. Each time she pops an Ibuprofen, there is a real worry that she’s taking an excessive amount of of them and it will trigger extreme issues for her.
The abuse she’s placing on her ankle is flat-out disturbing. One cannot even fathom the extreme harm that she’s seemingly doing to herself by pushing her physique past its limits like this.
She’s working herself into the bottom, resorting again to how she was once when she was coaching for the Olympics and seeing everybody round her as an opponent somewhat than a teammate.
Maya’s trauma and emotional abuse harm run so deep, and it is upsetting how a lot it is rearing its head as of late.
She’s treating each like they’re her enemy, and he or she nonetheless is not studying the way to cope with her crap healthily and productively, resorting to the outdated strategies that clearly aren’t figuring out for her.
Her fall from that treadmill was an inevitability. However now there is no one there to seek out her. And deep down, she’ll conclude that it is extra about these in her life who’re uninterested in her pushing them away and fewer about them being busy or not caring or desirous to be bothered.
I do not even know what else to say about Marina.
Maya was upset about Carina taking the being pregnant take a look at with out her, and it was a kind of issues that elicited combined emotions. On the one hand, they agreed to do that collectively, so Carina going behind her again should’ve harm.
Alternatively, Carina is uninterested in feeling alone, Maya is inaccessible to her, they usually might not be steady sufficient to convey a toddler into this world.
Carina is exhausted and emotionally spent sufficient to need the reality, even when her marriage is unsure.
The emotional distance between them solely appears to develop with each passing second.
