Season one of NBC’s medical drama New Amsterdam takes a two week break and will return on November 13, 2018 with episode seven. Titled “Domino Effect,” season one episode seven finds Dr. Goodwin continuing to attempt to balance work life with his illness.
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 J Anupam Kher (The Indian Detective) plays Dr. Vijay Kapoor.
The “Domino Effect” Plot: With a big domino transplant procedure on the line, Max (Eggold) must decide if he can be present in the hospital while also dealing with his illness. Meanwhile, a bond with a patient makes Bloom (Montgomery) consider her personal life and Iggy (Labine) makes progress on a long-standing case.
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.”
