Aesha Scott has abandoned ship — but she has good reason for it.

How to Watch

Watch Below Deck Mediterranean on Mondays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app

In a new preview for Below Deck Mediterranean Season 9, Episode 5 (you can watch it above!), Aesha approaches Captain Sandy Yawn to show her an injured finger. "In my experience, when it forms a line like that, it's usually a sign of infection. And it feels like there's still some glass in there," she explains to her boss as a video of the recent incident plays. In case you missed it, during the last charter, Aesha cut her finger on a broken martini glass.

"Maybe we just send you ashore, get the glass cut out, and get it wrapped," replies the captain, who adds in a confessional interview that if Aesha develops an infection and can't work the next charter, it would be "catastrophic." Then, she lists the exact reasons why.

Captain Sandy Yawn Doesn't Want to Work a Charter Without Aesha Scott

Aesha is beloved by Captain Sandy for plenty of reasons, one of which is her professionalism.

"The deck team is still finding their feet. We haven't had the greatest last charter with the chef. I don't need my interior to fall apart," Captain Sandy explains while discussing how she doesn't want Aesha to be down for the count.

With that being said, before she leaves the boat, Aesha goes and touches base with her stewardesses.

"If I'm not back in time, [we'll need] welcome drinks, towels," she tells Elena Dubaich and Bri Muller.

In a confessional, she adds that she's very worried about missing the next batch of guests' arrival. "We're getting guests on in three hours," Aesha says. "There's not much time to go to a Greek hospital, get it looked at, and get back to the boat."

Will she make it back? Watch the latest episode of Below Deck Mediterranean on Monday, July 1 at 9/8c to find out.
