New Amsterdam Season 2: Like William and Jack in 'This is Us,' will Georgia continue to be part of NBC's medical drama?
We did see a bit of flashback when the show explored Max and Georgia's romantic journey and viewers hope to see a lot more of that in the future as well.
One of the biggest mysteries of medical drama 'New Amsterdam' was revealed as soon as Season 2 premiered on NBC on September 24 - who died in the accident that marked the end of Season 1? We, along with Max (Ryan Eggold) are still mourning the death of his Georgia (Lisa O'Hare), who seems to still be living in his memories. It has been three months since the accident, and since her death, Ryan is finding it pretty hard to move on, which is why we believe that O'Hare's time on the show is not over yet.
It has been no secret that 'New Amsterdam' is following a similar strategy as 'This is Us' wherein stories of incredible people with immense strength in character are narrated without the regular pitfalls of villains and inexplicably horrible people. These shows teach us that there are no good or bad people, just good and bad circumstances, and people who are forced to react to certain situations in certain ways.
This is exactly why we predict that Max, who is devoted to his wife much like his 'This is Us' counterpart Jack (Milo Ventimiglia), will take a while before he even looks at another woman. We expect him to have a romantic future with Helen (Freema Agyeman), but it certainly can wait. She is going to be crucial to him moving forward, and we can say with near certainty that much like 'This is Us', 'New Amsterdam' is going to have a long run on NBC. There is no rush to tell any stories, and that hopefully means that O'Hare can be seen in the show for a while longer.
As we know, 'This is Us' brings back its dead characters quite a bit, and we are not just talking about the dearly departed Jack. We also see William (Ron Cephas Jones) every now and then in the flashbacks of various characters, much like Georgia is appearing in Max's hallucinations or memories. We did see a bit of flashback when the show explored their romantic journey, but we are hoping to see a lot more of that in the future as well. How did the courtship go? What made their marriage rocky? Did their parents approve of their marriage?
Hopefully 'New Amsterdam' will keep Georgia around to answer these questions. Find out if she will be in Season 2 Episode 2 of 'New Amsterdam' by watching 'The Big Picture' on Tuesday, October 1 night.
