Fire is necessary. Even though it might seem random or instantaneous or impossible to control. Even if it's our last day on Earth, and everything around us is burning to the ground, fire has purpose. Fire knows what it's doing. And once it's started to spread, there's not actually much you can do to stop it. So what would you do with your last day on Earth? Would you speak your mind? Could you admit your flaws? Would you give someone new a chance? Would you protect your heart? Would you share your space? Or would you wake up, get dressed, step out, breathe in, move beyond the past or sadness or worry, and just start running?

Last Day on Earth is the sixth episode of the second season and the 16th overall episode of Station 19.

Main CastEdit

Guest StarsEdit


Gas LeakEdit

Maya and Andy responded to a call for an injured kid. She ran into a building with a gas leak, so they had to hunt down the kid and get her out, which included breaking down a wall.

Greg TannerEdit

Greg came into the station with injuries which he said were from breaking up a fight. He didn't want to be taken to the hospital, despite bleeding from his abdomen. He signed a waiver so they wouldn't take him to the hospital. Then she put steri-strips on his face. Pruitt took over treatment and tended to all his injuries. Greg then tried to leave, but he collapsed in the elevator. Maya and Andy jumped to his aid. Andy believed he had a cardiac bruise, which caused his problem. They used adenosine to treat him and sent him to the hospital.

Hannah SherwoodEdit

Hannah called for help when she got her hand stuck in her garbage disposal. She'd been doing dishes when she knocked her wedding ring down in the disposal and reached for it instinctively. She said she had it in only for a second before she turned it off. Travis disconnected the disposal and started to take it apart. Ben assessed that her fingers were stuck between the blades. She still had sensation in her fingers, which was a good sign. As Travis worked, Hannah began to lose feeling in her fingers. Travis was able to free her hand and they bandaged her up and told her to follow up at the hospital.


Andy and Maya were called out to find an injured hiker. They couldn't find him, so they had him turn up his music so they could follow the sound to him. He said when he first fell, he didn't have reception and had to drag himself a ways to be able to call for help. He had a tree impaled in his thigh. Maya and Andy prepared their equipment to repel down and haul him back up. Then they assessed his medical situation. Maya tried to call for Air Evac, but couldn't get a signal. They splinted his leg and put him on a stretcher. Then they pulled him up and out of the valley. Then they got a medevac to get him to the hospital.

Parker SherwoodEdit

Park had a tattoo that was red. Dean checked it out and said it was probably infected. He put antibiotic cream on it.
