It was quite a heavy last episode for Dr Helen Sharpe, but it appears that the streak will continue. Episode 12 will continue to explore Helen's career arc as she struggles to get back in the groove after the demotion. According to the synopsis, Helen makes an important realization that is set to impact her career in a big way.
If you recall, she and Dr Max had a heart-to-heart regarding the same at the end of Episode 11 where after a day full of juggling departments to cooperate with Max's vision, Helen tells him that she needs him to be her safety net, the way she has been hers. The episode ends with Max asking, "How can I help?"
The lingering romantic subplot aside, these two are also incredible doctors who are extremely committed to helping people. So it is entirely possible that this realization is completely unrelated to Max. Helen, however, did jump through a lot of hoops to get the job done last week so it is quite possible it has come back to bite her.
The episode may also deal with Dr Reynolds and his plan to move to San Francisco along with his wife.
Last week, after Max dismissed the conversation even though Reynolds clearly tried to explain it to him, there's bound to be some animosity between the two. They have known each other for a long time, in fact, he was the New Amsterdam Medical Centre's first hire — so the conversation is definitely awkward. The two doctors work on a young patient with symptoms of a heart attack and when you spend so many hours together doing what you both love — emotions have a way of getting high.
