‘Station 19’ Season 5 Episode 15 recap: Andy gives a statement

Meanwhile, two police officers take a statement from Andy in Station 19 Season 5 Episode 15. They ask a lot of questions and imply that Andy’s memories are “hazy.” She requests that Ben Warren (Jason George) be present while they finish the investigation. He suggests that a rape kit be collected because it increases the likelihood of holding the perpetrator accountable. However, the officers point out that this isn’t standard procedure for police officers. Ben suggests that they need more training because it should be common to collect evidence.

Andy’s flashbacks

Then a firefighter taught her self-defense. Throughout the entire sample collection, she continuously had flashbacks of herself as a young girl learning to defend herself from an attacker.

Carina (Stefania Spampinato) arrives at Station 19 to tell Jack that she’s elated and angry at the same time. They are both proud of Andy for fighting the guy off. However, they’re mad that it happened. Taryn Helm helps Carina go through the exam and collect the evidence. They ask her consent for each part to give her control over the entire situation.

Andy hears the news that Jeremy died

After Jeremy dies, two detectives show up to question Andy. She speaks to precinct 34 and does her best to help the investigation. However, they insist that she was a paramedic and should have stayed to treat Jeremy. The officers say she’s not allowed to have an advocate here.
