True to its title, “Hell Ride” follows several key figures from Firehouse 51 in prison during a dangerous prison riot, as well as several characters’ personal struggles in life. Much of the episode revolves around entering and exiting the facility with no loss of life, and as noted by Lauren German in an interview with Celebs.com (via YouTube), the stressful inability to come and go as quickly as desired was not limited to on-screen events.
“There’s just a complete process that any visitor coming out of prison has to follow,” she said of the prison filming process. “Everything needs to be monitored, checked, locked, opened, and when I talked to Michelle – our real consultant – she said that it’s the same even when someone literally dies in prison. just need to check. You have to wait, like everyone else, for those doors to open and close, and in many cases, it’s really scary. Trying to save the lives of these people takes a lot of time.”
Since Herman’s character is a paramedic, it makes sense that she approaches the situation from a lifesaving perspective. However, the actor’s personal experience was not only about security checks and tedious waiting at checkpoints.
