Spoilers for 'New Amsterdam' Season 4 Episode 3

'Same As It Ever Was' saw generous doses of romance, some gut-wrenching emotions and enough feel-good moments. However, the sharp pullback to reality came in the form of New Amsterdam's new Medical Director, Veronica Fuentes (Michelle Forbes). All through the episode, Fuentes was seen observing the residents, the doctors, and the staff and making notes. Soon after Karen Brantley announces that Fuentes would essentially replace Max Goodwin (Ryan Eggold), the mood in the camp turns from ecstatic to somber.

The episode ends with Max revealing that he and Fuentes have history. While we may have to wait for the next episode to know more about how the two go way back, what we do know is that she trained Max, mostly at med school. We can also safely assume that her methods of getting the job done are ruthless and is a clear move away from how Max runs things at the hospital. The promo for the fourth episode saw the duo face-off with Fuentes mostly doing the threatening.

Wry humor wasn't far off.
