Max has a new doctor, Reynolds has a patient with a curious condition, and Kapoor faces Ella for the first time since the awkward encounter. Here’s what to expect and how to watch New Amsterdam Season 1, Episode 18 live.

At the end of the last episode of New Amsterdam, Sharpe stepped down as Max’s doctor. Episode 18 will see him meet his new doctor, who isn’t happy with the erratic cancer treatment schedule. She’s not happy that he puts the hospital before himself.

While it can seem honorable, it’s actually ridiculous of Max and shows his weaknesses. If he was to die, the hospital would be left in the hands of God only knows who. He’s a great asset to the hospital, but he needs to live! Hopefully, his new doctor can push the reminder that without him, the hospital isn’t as good as it is right now.

Speaking of the hospital, Episode 18 will see Reynolds treat a patient with cystic fibrosis. However, that’s not the curious condition by the sounds of things. The promo doesn’t show us anything of this case, but there are some “curious symptoms” mentioned in the synopsis. This will certainly be an interesting part of the episode.

Then there’s the main focus of the episode. After a crash c-section, the guardians of a baby are clearly in question. It sounds like either the mother doesn’t survive or she’s in a coma, meaning that it’s up to the people who paid for her to have the baby and the woman’s own parents to discuss the next steps.

This storyline will certainly raise some questions. There are definitely going to be some who side with the grandparents, but there will also be talks of surrogacy and the mother’s rights. Which side will Max and the rest of the hospital be on? Which side will the law be on?

While all that goes on, Kapoor and Sharpe have personal matters in their episodes. While Sharpe takes the next step in her personal life, Kapoor is going to see Ella for the first time since that awkward encounter. Uh oh!

Here’s a look at the promo and synopsis for New Amsterdam Season 1, Episode 18. Get ready for one intense episode inside the hospital.

"Reynolds struggles to help a young cystic fibrosis patient who has curious symptoms; Kapoor finally comes face-to-face with Ella after their awkward encounter; Sharpe takes a major step in her personal life."
