NEW AMSTERDAM Post-Mortem: David Schulner and Peter Horton Break Down the ‘All Night Long’ Twists

A night out went horribly awry on the Tuesday, April 19 episode of NEW AMSTERDAM.

In “All Night Long,” the doctors tried to unwind with a little karaoke and drinking. But rather than tell a chronological story, the episode—penned by Laura Valdivia—followed the characters individually, weaving their Very Bad Night with the fallout from it…as a number of doctors went missing.

“It’s always easier to follow one character to its natural, conclusion or cliffhanger,” NEW AMSTERDAM showrunner David Schulner says. “So it was really fun for us, much like Peter [Horton]’s episode—that ended season 3—that followed one character per act; it gives you a great momentum to not cut away from that character. So I love it. I love following a character through right up until the very moment where things take that dramatic turn.”

“The hardest part of the story was the present-day medical story,” he continues. “And going back to that each act and finding them in a new position, with a new series regular. So that was the most challenging part. The mystery stuff was actually fun and easy. It was the present day story that was the hardest.”

“It’s hard for it to compete against what was going on with all of our characters,” Horton adds with a laugh.

And, of course, for many of the characters, there’s the very real question of WTF is going on: With Wilder (Sandra Mae Frank), Casey (Alejandro Hernandez), Mia (Genevieve Angelson), and Trevor (Ryan Faucett) in compromising and/or life-threatening positions last they were seen, the episode ended with a shot of Helen (Freema Agyeman) passed out on the floor in Max’s (Ryan Eggold) apartment.

“Anything’s possible,” Horton teases of what’s to come in the next episode, “Unfinished Business.”

“Some people get better and some people get worse,” adds Schulner.

“And the question is going to be sitting out there—is everyone gonna make it?” Horton finishes.

There was a bit of concrete news in “All Night Long,” as Reynolds (Jocko Sims) found out that Malvo (Frances Turner) was moving to Colorado—and that the baby she’s pregnant with is his.

“This whole situation of him being a father is going to bring up all of his own father issues,” Schulner says. “When his father left his family and how Reynolds [dealt with] that hole…it is really the thing that propelled him to want a traditional family that has been so blown apart by the situation he finds himself in now. So the fact that that Malvo is pregnant is just going to unleash all of Reynolds’ past trauma and pain. So it’s going to be a wild ride for him going forward, that’s for sure.”
