Why Camille Lamb Came Back to Below Deck After Alissa Humber Got Fired

After revealing that she felt "vindicated," Camille had a sharp message for Alissa following her dismissal: "Good riddance."

By Shannon Raphael

The February 13 episode of Below Deck ended with a serious cliffhanger, as Captain Sandy Yawn debated about whether or not to fire second stew Alissa Humber.

After the interior crew member called the captain by just her first name, Captain Sandy called Alissa back to the bridge to talk about her repeated "insubordination."

In the first moments of the February 20 episode, Captain Sandy told Alissa why that comment bothered her so much. 

"Alissa, when you said 'Yes Sandy, I mean Captain,' that was the f--k you in my face," Captain Sandy said. "No matter what job you work in, respect for hierarchy is a must."

The Below Deck Mediterranean captain revealed Alissa's fate on the boat. "I'm letting you go," she said.

What was Alissa's response to her "short and sweet" firing?

"Thank you," she told Captain Lee Rosbach's temporary replacement, who then asked Ross McHarg to escort Alissa off the boat. Alissa told the Bosun that she found her firing to be "so funny."

"I mean I can't even be upset because I really didn't do anything," she explained after she told fellow interior crew members Fraser Olender, Tyler Walker, and Hayley De Sola Pinto the news. 

In a confessional, Alissa reflected on her firing before she exited the vessel for good.

"I do feel like I'm a scapegoat," the former second stew admitted. "I'm the only person [who] had the balls to speak up and defend our team besides Fraser, and it's impossible to replace Fraser, so she had to get the next best thing, and that's me."

She concluded by saying that she was exiting the boat with a "full heart [and] tired feet."

Though Captain Sandy stood by her decision, she wasn't happy that she had to let Alissa go.
"It never feels good to fire a crew member," Captain Sandy explained. "You're ending their income and, as a captain, I have to make the hard decisions, and I have to live with them."

As viewers may remember, Alissa wasn't the first St. David crew member to get fired during the charter season. Earlier on in the season, Sandy let deck-stew Camille Lamb go after she repeatedly clashed with Alissa.

After the rest of the crew found out about Alissa's dismissal, deckhand Ben Willoughby Facetimed Camille to deliver the news. While the fired deck-stew told Ben that her only comment on the matter was "Good riddance," she did have more to say when she returned to Below Deck for a confessional.

"I've been vindicated," Camille said in an interview about Alissa's firing. "I was always seeing her, you know, be, for lack of a better term, awful, and she's shown her face. I'm satisfied that people got to see what I saw. Hashtag Justice for Camille. "

Though Camille was pleased to learn about her former superior's dismissal, their relationship has markedly improved since they were on St. David together. 

During a chat with E! News, Alissa shared that the two had been in touch several times since Season 10 premiered.

"Actually, me and Camille talk more than I thought we would," Alissa said. "Camille's reached out to me a few times and we kind of said our piece to each other.
