New Amsterdam Season 2 Episode 16 Spoilers
‘New Amsterdam’ season 2 episode 16 is going to be focused on Dr. Valentina Castro. We all know how Helen Sharpe reluctantly re-hires Castro after the horrifying accident. Helen has always found Castro shady and therefore she has been keeping an eye on her. However, with everything that has happened in the last few weeks at the facility, Sharpe has been unable to keep track of Castro’s activities.
In the upcoming episode, we can expect Helen to learn some baffling truth about Castro. It might be possible that Castro has been falsifying the data of her patients all this time, and fooling the staff members to think that she works too hard to cure tumors, at the facility. Helen might take matters into her own hands and confront Castro before her activities take a toll on the patients and eventually, damage the hospital’s reputation. She might even sabotage Castro’s trial. Hopefully, Helen might take down Castro with Bloom’s help. How will Max react to this shocking news about his oncologist? What else has Castro been hiding?
