Within the primary 20 minutes of the most recent episode, chief stew Hannah Ferrier from Below Deck Mediterranean is fired and changed by second stew Christine “Bugsy” Drake.
Bosun Malia White uncovers Ferrier’s prescription valium and CBD pen in her cabin and sends a photograph of it to Captain Sandy Yawn. The valium and CBD weren’t beforehand registered and Ferrier can not produce proof of a prescription. Yawn explains to Ferrier that she has to dismiss her for security causes.
“I did not let the stew go because of drugs,” Yawn defined in an Instagram Live final week. “I let the stew go because I had to make a critical decision which protects the vessel, the owner of the vessel, and my license.” Adding, “I no longer felt I could trust that crew member.”
Drake is promoted to chief stew nearly instantaneously. The crew has solely hours to arrange for the following constitution.
Hannah Ferrier says she was prepared to go away yachting
Ferrier packs her baggage and tries to keep away from the cameras. She has a tense encounter with White however doesn’t confront her earlier than she leaves. “Apparently you get fired for having anxiety attacks,” Ferrier says to White. “I have a legal CBD pen and legal valium on board. I have prescriptions also.”
Third stew Jessica More is saddened by Ferrier’s departure. But she can be frightened about Drake’s depth now that it’s apparent she is going to take over as chief stew.
“This is how it ends?” Ferrier says in a confessional shrugging. “I’m very aware of the maritime laws. I’ve been in yachting for years. It was a mistake on my part. I needed to declare that. But to be honest with you, I think I’ve been ready to make a hasty exit from yachting for a few years now. But I don’t like going home like this.”

“As sad as I am to be leaving on this really dark, horrible note, I would never ever regret my time in yachting,” she says. “It molds who you are as a human being and who you will always be. Working in yachting is like the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. It’s just I’m done with the heart attack. I would have preferred to end on a high … not literally,” she laughs.
Bugsy Drake turns into chief stew
The crew assumes Drake will take over as chief stew and Yawn makes it official. Yawn calls Drake into her workplace and delivers the information that Ferrier has left. She asks her to step in as chief stew for the remainder of the season. Unfortunately the staff should work the following constitution a stew down, however Yawn says she’ll usher in one other strew for the next constitution.
“Okay, that’s a weird way to be promoted I guess,” Drake says in a confessional. “Somebody has to step in and take charge for a charter that’s starting in like, what an hour? It’s very unfortunate the way it’s all kind of played out.”

Yawn holds a crew assembly the place she reveals that Drake will now take over for Ferrier. Drake springs into motion and provides More her instructions. “While working as a chief stew is a title I feel very comfortable with, I never expected that I would have to do it on this boat running with only one stewardess,” Drake says in a confessional.
Although More thinks maybe she could also be promoted to second stew it seems that Yawn is searching for somebody to take over Drake’s former place.
