The eleventh episode of ‘New Amsterdam’ season 4, titled ‘Talkin’ Bout A Revolution,’ begins with Max and Helen settling down at their new home in London with Luna. Back in New Amsterdam, Veronica fails to bring the department chiefs, doctors, and other staff to her side. As a reaction, she puts an end to Iggy’s vocational placement programs, asks Reynolds to increase surgeries for profit, and emphasizes discharging more patients from Bloom’s department without providing surgeries to aid insurance companies.
Dr. Lyn suffers complications in her pregnancy. Meanwhile, Dr. Baptiste and Reynolds give samples for a paternity test to determine the father of Lyn’s baby. Leyla leaves from New Amsterdam without letting Bloom know about her whereabouts. A distressed Bloom tries to contact her, only to fail.

New Amsterdam Season 4 Episode 11 Ending: Who is the Father of Lyn’s Baby?
After finding out about Baptiste’s paternity test, Lyn storms to Reynolds and starts to vent without realizing Reynolds also gave the sample. When he reminds her that it is only natural to determine the father, she asks him whether he wants to know it to free himself from the responsibilities of her and her baby. When Lyn suffers complications with her pregnancy again, Baptiste and Reynolds realize the mistake they made. They understand that it is their responsibility to take care of Lyn and her baby irrespective of whose DNA matches with the baby.
When Lyn recovers, Baptiste and Reynolds apologize to her. They inform her that they have informed the lab to destroy the samples so that there won’t be any tests. To her apologetic partners, Lyn reveals that her condition is fine. Lyn also adds that she wants a partner who will take responsibility without thinking twice about her and her baby. She makes it clear that a test result shouldn’t be the foundation of the love and care her baby deserves. For Lyn, that genuineness matters more than the truth about the baby’s father.
Does Treize Get Cured? Who Saves Him?
Yes, Treize gets cured. Due to several misfortunes and accidents, Treize believes that he is cursed and modern medicine cannot put an end to his sufferings. And that’s how he ends up with Dr. Mia for holistic treatment. He believes her when she says that his unstable energy is causing all his troubles, which severely irritates Bloom. When she finds out that he has cancer, Treize dismisses her suggestions to undergo surgery, thinking his curses will act during the surgery to kill him. However, Dr. Mia eases his worries and prepares him for the surgery.
When Veronica rejects Treize’s surgery, Bloom and Wilder team up to conduct it without even informing Mia. After a successful surgery, Treize gets cured. However, he believes that Mia’s interference to deal with his energy saved him. He overlooks the fact that Mia’s methods can’t remove cancer from one’s body and fails to understand that it is Bloom who saved him with the surgery and the efforts she put forward to conduct it behind Veronica’s back, risking her own job.
Even when Treize gives the credits to Mia, Bloom refrains from correcting him since she prioritizes her patients’ well-being over the credits she deserves. She acknowledges the confidence Treize gets from his unscientific beliefs. Even though Bloom saved his life, it may put her in a vulnerable position in front of Veronica as Mia find out about her secret surgery.
Why Does Helen Fire Max?
Max leaves New Amsterdam to join Helen in London as she joins her former workplace as the new medical director. Since he can’t practice as a doctor right away due to permit issues, Max becomes the receptionist at the hospital. Even while working as a receptionist, Max commences his efforts to fight the system. He talks with a couple of cancer patients and suggests they demand the services they require. Max’s rebellion adds to the severe predicaments Helen faces, as she also fails to impress the NHS regional director.
From her conversation with the regional director, she understands the difficulties of implementing her methods, which are deemed “American.” She realizes that Max’s efforts to transform her hospital are not the best way to move forward. Thus, she fires Max from her hospital. However, Max’s work permit gets sanctioned by the time. Thus, we can definitely hope to see Max running his show in the British healthcare system while enjoying his time with Helen.
