'New Amsterdam' Season 4 Episode 11: Predicting Max and Helen's relationship, future

'New Amsterdam' Season 4 Episode 11: Predicting Max and Helen's relationship, future
Will Max and Helen return to the US? (NBC)

It is a no-brainer that Max Goodwin (Ryan Eggold) and Helen Sharpe (Freema Agyeman) will return to the hospital in 'New Amsterdam' and even if they do, or at least one of them does, how does it work for the remainder of the show? Last we saw, the promo of the new episode starting January 4 showed the couple happy in London. But their return shouldn't come as a surprise. What does the future hold in store for the two? We try and predict the possible scenarios that will see them return to the US.


Veronica Fuentes leaves and the hospital needs Max

Michelle Forbes as Medical director was quite the thorn for the main characters and at some stage, she would have to exit the show. This was pretty much a common observation even in 'Suits' that sees the law firm suffer under a new authority figure. We can expect her to exit the role and that leaves the door open for Max to resume his role at the hospital.

Something bad happens to the supporting cast

Lauren Bloom (Janet Montgomery), Floyd Reynolds (Jocko Sims), and Iggy Frome (Tyler Labine) have been crucial components and Max's best friends at New Amsterdam. One of the possible story ideas would be to see something bad befall one of these characters and that Max or Helen's expertise is required to nurse them back.

Maybe Max never left to London after all

Although the midseason finale showed that Max and Helen left for the airport, what if Max never left the country after all? Perhaps there is the angle where he bids adieu to Helen and tells her that he cannot bring himself to quit his job at New Amsterdam. And that whatever we saw in the promo of Episode 11 could have been a dream?


Max and Helen shelve their London plan for their friends

This one's absurd, but not impossible. Both these characters owe their lives to the folks at the hospital and despite having a relatively short stay in London, they may just look at returning once they realize they miss the place way too much.
