“How can I help?” That mantra, courtesy of idealistic medical director Dr. Max Goodwin (Ryan Eggold), has sustained this drama over five seasons, depicting hectic life-and-death situations within New York City’s oldest public hospital. The series ends with strong back-to-back hours, starting with Max and Dr. Wilder (the terrific Sandra Mae Frank) sharing their qualms about a clinical trial involving a possible miracle cancer drug. The series finale is full of emotional catharsis, as Max prepares to leave for a new gig but finds himself part of an all-hands-on-deck medical emergency that prompts each of the main characters to reflect on the moment when they knew healing was their destiny. A nice twist at the end gives us a glimpse into the hospital’s future, a reminder of how satisfying it can be when a show has the luxury of plotting its own ending, however poignant.
