'New Amsterdam' Season 2: Iggy and Martin sort things out, but it sets up the couple for a dark future ahead
They can't see eye to eye on Iggy's decision, which he does not think is that big of a deal — and an unlikely savior settles their argument
This week's episode of 'New Amsterdam' was, without doubt, a thriller, but what made the show stand out were the emotional moments woven into the craziness.
The hospital is on lockdown and Code Silver after the three Riker's prisoners escape. Just before the speakers start blaring to evacuate the hallways, Martin and Iggy were finally talking about the baby and as everyone got locked inside, the couple is finally forced to talk about the elephant in the room.
Iggy had decided to get a second child without telling her husband and it brings up a lot of untold emotions. They can't see eye to eye on Iggy's decision, which he does not think is that big of a deal — and an unlikely savior settles their argument.
Iggy, the Head of Psychology, was about to tell Tabitha that she would never make a great therapist but as she also ends up being stuck with them, she tries to calm things down.
She tries to unwrap the situation asking if Iggy's need to help people was not something he wanted to do but rather had to and if it was rooted in his insecurities.
Iggy breaks down and confesses that it truly was that — through tears, he tells Martin that he was afraid that one day he'd see the "loser" that Iggy was and find someone better.
Martin, quite shocked that the whole matter was never about him lacking anything but actually Iggy's own perception ends up listing everything he loves about Iggy. The two kiss and all is well with our favorite couple in the hospital.
Well, almost. Tabitha breaks it to him that he may have a narcissistic personality disorder. Now there has always been a lot to unwrap in this relationship, but it will be very interesting to see the show shrinking the shrink.
Brace yourself for a breakdown for Iggy this season. 'New Amsterdam' airs on Tuesdays at 10 pm ET on NBC.
