Season one episode 20 is up next, airing on Tuesday, April 30, 2019 at 10pm ET/PT. Titled “Preventable,” episode 20 finds both Max and Reynolds going through a rough period.
The cast of season one includes Ryan Eggold as Dr. Max Goodwin, Janet Montgomery (Salem, This Is Us) as Dr. Lauren Bloom, Tyler Labine (Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency) as Dr. Iggy Frome, and Jocko Sims (The Last Ship, Masters of Sex) as Dr. Floyd Reynolds. Freema Agyeman (Sense8, The Carrie Diaries) is Dr. Helen Sharpe and Anupam Kher (The Indian Detective) plays Dr. Vijay Kapoor.
“Preventable” Plot – Max (Eggold) is forced to reckon with his diagnosis in a new way as things become more difficult for him. Meanwhile, Reynolds (Sims) is forced to address what could have gone wrong in a recent surgery.
The Season 1 Plot:
“Inspired by Bellevue, the oldest public hospital in America, this unique medical drama follows the brilliant and charming Dr. Max Goodwin (Eggold), the institution’s newest medical director who sets out to tear up the bureaucracy and provide exceptional care. How can he help? Well, the doctors and staff have heard this before.
Not taking “no” for an answer, Dr. Goodwin must disrupt the status quo and prove he will stop at nothing to breathe new life into this understaffed, underfunded and underappreciated hospital — the only one in the world capable of treating Ebola patients, prisoners from Rikers and the President of the United States under one roof — and return it to the glory that put it on the map.”
