Hopefully, you remembered to hydrate after all the tears you cried while watching New Amsterdam Season 1 Episode 10.
Hydration is important because we don't want any of you collapsing. If you set a goal to reduce stress, then that all went to hell after watching that heart-pounding hour of New Amsterdam!
The series has found its stride. It knows what it is and what it wants to be, and now it's doing what it does best which is emotionally manipulating the heck out of us in the sweetest way possible.
Max Goodwin lives. There were no doubts that he would, but it didn't make the hour or his dire condition any less harrowing. The moments with Helen talking Georgia through a trach using a pocket knife and a straw in the middle of nowhere had to be the most breathtaking of the hour.
The good news for many of you wondering why Georgia didn't make a phone call, she did. She called the ambulance, and she called Helen who must have worked herself high up onto Max's contact list being his BFF and doctor. It was the Goodwins' hour, for sure, but there were still plenty of Sharpwin feels.

Would it have made a difference or not?
It's natural to feel guilty or blame yourself during those type of moments, and Georgia was conveying that along with everything else, especially when Lauren was explaining to her the difference between six minutes and seven.
It was Lisa O'Hare's hour to shine, and she did. New Kapoor and New Iggy are the best, but so were Old Kapoor and Old Iggy. Although were they ever the old versions of themselves to us, or have we always known the newer versions?
Nevermind that; New Georgia is someone more likable.
Georgia has been revamped, which is something mentioned before. She needed it, and the past few installments have improved her character a great deal. She was provided some much-needed backstory as were the Goodwins as a couple. Unsurprisingly, they met at a hospital.
Georgia was cute with her long hair and twirling about in the ER. Ma..
