Is Tyler Labine leaving New Amsterdam and his character of Iggy Frome following Tuesday night’s new episode? The show definitely wanted you to worry.
Ever since the end of this past season, Iggy has shied away from seeing patients following some of his own trauma. He feels as though he’s not ready, and that getting back into sessions would only cause him to hurt people rather than help.
Unfortunately for him, during tonight’s episode he started to feel mounting pressure to start seeing patients immediately; this is a source of money for the hospital and if there’s one thing we know about Dr. Fuentes at this point, it’s that she cares about profits immensely. Even when she claims to be helpful or altruistic (take, for example, with Dr. Sharpe), she often has some sort of ulterior motive.
At about the two-thirds mark of this episode, it was clear that Iggy was ready to resign. He and his husband would find a way even without that job to move forward, even if it meant moving elsewhere.
Were you worried that Tyler Labine would be leaving New Amsterdam, and his character of Iggy, tonight?
