Jaina Lee Ortiz Talks Jack’s Destiny, If Romance Is in Playing cards for Andy in Remaining Season


[Warning: The below contains MAJOR spoilers for the Station 19 Season 7 premiere “This Woman’s Work.”]

Jack’s (Gray Damon) destiny stays up within the air in a approach on the finish of the Station 19 Season 7 premiere. Positive, he’s going to dwell, however his profession? Properly…

Amelia (Gray’s Anatomy‘s Caterina Scorsone) is Jack’s physician, and she or he’s the one to inform Andy (Jaina Lee Ortiz), who spends the episode seeing her model of him, the dangerous information. Due to the scarring she sees on his mind, whereas he would possibly get well with bodily remedy, she doesn’t see a world by which any physician or division will clear him to battle fires once more. However when Jack wakes on the finish of the episode, his first query for his captain, Andy, is “when’s my subsequent shift?” Uh-oh.

Under, Ortiz teases what’s forward.

What does Jack’s restoration appear to be going ahead? Is there even a chance of him working as a firefighter once more? It doesn’t sound prefer it’s doable.

Jaina Lee Ortiz: He’s severely injured to the purpose the place he might not have the ability to carry out the way in which he used to, and so that may deliver up a whole lot of battle.

It’s not trying optimistic although.

It’s not optimistic, and in a approach, we’ll lose him, however we received’t lose him, if that is smart.

What’s tougher for Andy to cope with—that as his captain or that as his buddy?

Oh, each, however extra as a buddy. I really feel like Andy deeply loves and respects Jack, and he was her old flame. So to witness him succeed as a firefighter and watch him climb up the ranks after which develop into injured, not simply bodily, however emotionally by means of the entire private challenges in his life, I really feel prefer it’s double heartbreaking to her. And that’s simply one other impediment for Andy as a result of he is without doubt one of the most particular individuals in her life.

It’s superb the place Andy and Jack began and the place they’re now, however do you assume that the present might return to that romance?

Oh, you’re approaching to one thing. I feel we might get to see a full circle second with Andy and Jack. I’m not saying that I do know for positive. I truly don’t know.

Is romance even on Andy’s thoughts at this level? As a result of she needs to be so centered on being captain.

Proper. No, I feel her love curiosity this season is her job, and I really feel prefer it’s not what she anticipated it to be. Clearly no relationship is ideal. So the truth that she is struggling a lot as captain might be telling to the way it ends.

There’s additionally the matter of what’s occurring with Natasha (Merle Dandridge) and whether or not she’ll keep chief, and that needs to be one thing that considerations Andy too. How a lot is that on Andy’s thoughts?

I feel we’ll get to discover a ravishing Andy and Natasha friendship. I don’t assume Andy goals about changing into chief. I’m unsure if she’s ever even talked about eager to develop into chief or perhaps she has—all of the episodes and seasons are beginning to mix. So I feel she has let go of her relationship with Sullivan [Boris Kodjoe] and is now letting issues occur.

What else is arising for Andy? What are you able to tease?

I feel she is going to do her household, her mates, and her neighborhood completely satisfied, and I feel she’ll get the whole lot she needs as a result of that’s been the dream for the reason that starting, proper? And I feel wrapping this up and coming full circle, I really feel like if it’s not given to her, then gosh, what a tragic story, proper? If she doesn’t finish with the love of her life, then she’s ending with the profession of her life. And that to me is one thing very stunning to see on TV.

Is there something that was in your wishlist for Andy that you’re getting to do that season?

Yeah, I feel my wishlist has come true. I really feel like seeing Andy in her component as captain, as a frontrunner, because the daughter of somebody that so many individuals look as much as is one thing that may make Station 19 without end remembered for kind of this stunning legacy. And it doesn’t have to remain within the household as a result of whereas Andy didn’t get to have any kids, I really feel like the buddies that she saved round her grew to become her chosen household, and due to that, it would at all times keep within the household.

Station 19, Thursdays, 10/9c, ABC
