New Amsterdam Season 4 Episode 9 will see Max going up against Veronica in order to give shelter to undocumented immigrants. Also, finally, someone is listening to all the requests, and Veronica might be on the verge of termination. So, things have been quite tense since the beginning of Season 4. Max and Helen, two of the best from the hospital, are leaving and a new director is taking over. Veronica Fuentes is replacing Max, and they both have quite a history. The brutality Max knows is coming alive.
While Max took care of Veronica most of the time he was here, he couldn’t save everyone from Veronica. The recent episode was an example of it as she considered firing most of the employees, including some of the best around. That included the likes of Reynolds, Iggy, and Lauren as well. On top of that, the doctors were required to give their best amidst a cyber attack which saw them switching to old school ways. At this point, the only option Max had was to sign up for the budget. So did he? Let’s find out.
New Amsterdam S04 E08 Recap
Previously on New Amsterdam Season 4, we opened up with all the doctors worrying about Veronica firing half of the staff. It seems personal, but they still believe Max will take care of this before leaving. Max does the same by confronting Veronica about the same. She may want to make the changes by firing some of the top doctors around, but Max ain’t letting that happen. She needs two signatures on it, and he isn’t signing. The doctors get back to their usual work until slowly, things start going bad with all the technology they are having around.
A group going by the name of Disco Bunny is behind the hack. FBI says it could take weeks to months for them to restore the system. At this point, Max believes giving the ransom is the option since many patients rely on them. Veronica says they don’t have millions just laying around, but HCC does. The only way to get to the money is if Max signs the budget. Max explains to the department about the situation, and the doctors begin doing the necessary changes required.
