The Feb. 6 episode of ‘Station 19’ picked up proper the place we left off — with Ryan Tanner’s life on the road after an unintentional capturing. HL spoke EXCLUSIVELY with Alberto Frezza in regards to the episode. Spoilers forward!
Ryan Tanner sadly didn’t make it out of the Feb. 6 episode of Station 19 alive. The beloved character died after falling sufferer to “family fire.” He sacrificed himself to save lots of Andy and he or she desperately tried to save lots of him in return. HollywoodLife talked EXCLUSIVELY with Alberto Frezza about Ryan’s final moments. “I think that if there’s one person in the world that he would give his life for it would be Andy. It’s beautiful to see him actually do that. He doesn’t have a connection with anybody in his life, even his parents. I don’t think he’s as close to his parents as he is to Andy and I think the closest thing to a parent that he has is Pruitt. I think that he did it with an open heart and he did it without thinking twice. He would have done that 300 times if he had the chance.”
Just earlier than Ryan was shot, he was starting to divulge heart’s contents to Andy about one thing vital: his emotions for her. Ryan had already admitted that he informed his ex that he was nonetheless in love with Andy. Alberto opened up about Ryan and Andy’s closing dialog. “Unfortunately, it was cut short. But I know that Ryan made the decision to come back to Seattle and really open his heart to Andy and tell her all the things that he’s been wanting to tell her for years. They’ve just been a little immature and a little scared to say certain things to each other. They’ve been so focused on work and never really made it a priority to actually take things between them very seriously. This was him going for it 100 percent and he was laying it all on the line. I think the conversation would have been like, ‘Let’s try and do this 100 percent because I love you and I want to spend the rest of my life with you.’ I think that’s what he was going to do.”
The episode additionally featured touching flashbacks of Ryan and Andy’s time collectively. For Alberto, getting to point out one other aspect of his character, even underneath tragic circumstances, was one thing he loved. “It’s really nice because you really see how far these characters have come and you really get a sense of how much they know each other,” Alberto continued. “I believe that the little things are the one matter and we usually spend more time focusing on the bigger things that happened. A very simple scene of them laying on the hood of a car talking about certain things may be more formative in their relationship than something like a breakup, you know what I mean? I think that we see these little intricate moments between the two characters that really show us how much love they have for each other and how far they’ve come.”
Ryan and Pruitt’s relationship was additionally showcased and explored extra within the episode. Ryan and Pruitt’s dialogue is what prompts Ryan to be sincere with Andy about his true emotions. Unfortunately, it doesn’t finish with a fortunately ever after. “It’s devastating but it’s so funny because they all complement each other in some way. Pruitt finds out that he’s not doing too well, so he decides to open up to Ryan. Ryan takes it all in, he sees what life really means, what’s important, and what he wants. He finds the courage to open up to Andy and tell her how he feels. It just doesn’t really go the way we all wanted it to.” Station 19 airs Thursdays at eight p.m. on ABC.
