As we prepare for the New Amsterdam season 2 premiere on NBC Tuesday night, we know that there is one prevailing question: How is Max? Is he okay, and starting to feel better amidst his recovery from cancer?
Well, the new sneak peek below (via SpoilerTV) offers up a few more clues as to his condition. In this preview, you can see Ryan Eggold’s character having a conversation-of-sorts about his condition, and making it clear in the process that he has a new doctor looking after him. Dr. Castro is very successful in her field, and after treatment, Max is crediting her in part with him starting to feel better. He is receiving good news on his cancer treatment and things are starting to turn around!

Now, we recognize that there is a part of Dr. Castro’s presence that will make most viewers out there concerned — where is Dr. Sharpe? She’s been responsible for treating Max and, beyond that, the writers even make a note of mentioning that Max may miss his old doctor. Does this mean that she died following the ambulance crash at the end of season 1? It’s easy to draw that conclusion, but we don’t think that this is 100% the case.
Instead, think of things this way — it’s possible that Helen was severely injured in the crash and, because of that she may be facing a lengthy recovery time in order to ensure that she is okay. It wouldn’t be the first time that we saw such a situation like this on a medical drama — Helen could still return and when the dust settles, this entire clip may have just been designed to be a clever bit of misdirection away from the truth … whatever that may be.
At least we don’t have to wait too much longer for answers; they are coming your way tomorrow night!
