The good news is that the spate of natural disasters to have befallen the New York City area over the past four years would appear to be over. The bad? Floyd may have to give up his child, while Iggy and Martin are heading to Splitsville, where they might want to arrange a quick lunch date with Bloom and Leylah, who are on the ropes again.

Of course, the biggest twist of all saw poor Max get left at the altar with no explanation, but more heartbreaking still, Freema Agyeman aka Dr. Helen Sharpe aka one half of #Sharpwin has officially left the building for good!

It's been a traumatic time for the doctors at the New Amsterdam Medical Center, even by their usual standards, but even though the show is drawing to its conclusion, 13 episodes offer ample time for catharsis. Here's how to watch New Amsterdam season 5 online from anywhere in the world.
