Max and Dr. Lauren Bloom (Janet Montgomery) tried to do their best to help Georgia — but it became increasingly clear that she needed an emergency C-section. Max, Lauren, and Georgia managed to clamber into an ambulance in a crucial scene that gave viewers the false illusion that the crisis has already been averted. 

Another storyline explored in the Season 1 Finale of New Amsterdam revolved around a lawyer who had a drug addiction. Desperate to make an exit, he ended up stealing an ambulance — which crashed into the ambulance taking Max, Lauren, Georgia, and co. to the hospital.

The Season 2 premiere of 'New Amsterdam' shed light on Georgia's tragic death.

The Season 1 Finale of New Amsterdam ended on a harrowing note — but it was only in the Season 2 premiere, titled "Your Turn," that viewers got the chance to find out what really went down at the sight of the horrid car crash. 

The suspenseful episode gave way to a proliferation of new fan theories, as many were trying to work out which New Amsterdam characters made it out alive and who didn't.

"Done with season 1 and what a shocker. I hope none of the New Amsterdam doctors died in that accident. But I never would have wished for Georgia to either ... because of poor Max and Luna. Ugh," tweeted one fan.

"The way season 1 of @NBCNewAmsterdam ended was so mean. I need Season 2 right away. I just needed it to be September. I have so many questions. Is Georgia alive? Is Bloom dead? Is Sharpe alive? #NewAmsterdam," tweeted another.

As "Your Turn" revealed, it was Georgia who passed away. Season 2 of the show chronicled Max's attempts to grapple with her passing. He continued to see visions of her long after she was gone. 

In a recent episode of New Amsterdam, titled "This Is All I Need," Max traveled to Connecticut to meet Georgia's parents — and to pick up his beautiful daughter. As he had to learn during a lunch date with Georgia's folks, Luna changed a lot in his absence. But once they got back to Max's apartment, all seemed to be going well for the father and daughter duo.
