Contains spoilers for 'New Amsterdam' Season 4 Episode 7: 'Harmony'

After six episodes, 'New Amsterdam' Season 4 finally opened with a focus on Floyd Reynolds (Jocko Sims), Dr Lyn Malvo (Francie Turner), and Baptiste (Andre B Blake). The relationship between Floyd and Lyn hasn't been obviously received well by her husband, and the fact that he and Floyd are on the same team just makes it all the more complicated. 'Harmony' sheds light on the not-so-harmonious relationship between the trio, while also looking at some of Veronica Fuentes' (Michelle Forbes) moves that put people's lives in jeopardy.

The ambulance crash incident that resulted in the loss of life was one of the plot points that gave some insight into how private ambulance services and their deals with private hospitals work. Max Goodwin(Ryan Eggold) sorts the issue out, but that doesn't change the fact that the team couldn't save a life. And on another storyline, Dr Iggy Frome leaving New Amsterdam has already left Twitter buzzing if Tyler Labine is leaving the show. It is unlikely but will be a major shake-up if he does.

The Max and Helen Sharpe romance took a backseat until the final minutes when Luna finally acknowledges her as "mum". The couple's love story has been the highlight of the series so far and this just cements the fact that they are going strong. There was also that brief arc where Lauren Bloom (Janet Montgomery) does donate some funds to this hospital, only for Fuentes to see if she could pull out her purse again. Back to the Floyd-Lyn-Baptiste love triangle, there is still a lot to be resolved.

Sims' Floyd has been one of those characters who has been at war with himself since the start of the season, and this incident where they look and act like things are okay is not really working, especially from a professional perspective. It hasn't helped the chemistry either as Floyd and Lyn look more at odds rather than being in love. 'Harmony' does enough to keep the intrigue going, and with the season well into it's halfway stage, there's every chance that the series will explore more of these characters before giving their arcs a new direction.
