After Hannah Ferrier was fired on the recent Below Deck Mediterranean episode, she decided to stroll the dock and smoke a cigarette. An understandable choice, given the brusqueness of her termination. While on the phone with boyfriend Josh, Hannah was cornered on the dock by Captain Sandy Yawn.
Sandy was looking to validate her decision. Or maybe more camera time. Whatever the motivation, she really wanted Hannah to understand her point of view and leave on a sympathetic note. Hannah was having none of it, and left the boat with unresolved tension.
Now, fans of the show get to relive the drama as Hannah, Sandy, and Bosun Malia White do the rounds on social media. Hannah plays the usual victim and takes zero responsibility while Sandy is still enthusiastically defending her decision.
Sandy told The Below Deck Mediterranean After Show that, “you know, sure clients have had drugs, and I’ve addressed that. Of course, I take it to the primary and go, ‘I don’t care. You can do drugs your whole life. It’s not my business. What you can’t do, is drugs on board. And you need to remove them.'”

There have been several instances of charter guests bringing drugs on board, but this is the first time in series history that it was a crew member. Sandy explained the difference in severity as, “if my crew are doing drugs. Big difference. Cuz we’re liable. And that’s really the bottom line. And people smoke pot all over the world. People are prescribed valium. Hannah didn’t check that in.”
At this point, Sandy is shifting the goal posts. At the time of filming, it was all about the lack of prescriptions. Now, Sandy has a no tolerance stance on Valium. “Hannah can’t do Valium and have a job on a boat,” she said, “that’s not allowed because the minute you take that pill, you are now my liability. You are no longer my asset. And my crew are my asset in case we have an emergency.”

Hannah claims that she did not consume any of the Valium during the season. Perhaps her lack of enthusiasm for the job is the real reason she was fired. Either way, this cast shakeup will be very interesting to watch.
