'New Amsterdam' Season 2 Episode 7: Max is getting on fans' nerves who wish he would just take Helen's help in dealing with his loss
Over the last six episodes of the season, we have seen how heartbroken he really is, and how deeply he has been wallowing in his misery
Max (Ryan Eggold) has had a tough year, no doubt about it. He had been mourning his beloved wife Georgia's (Lisa O'Hare) death for three months when we met him in the Season 2 premiere of 'New Amsterdam'.
Over the last six episodes of the season, we have seen how heartbroken he really is, and how deeply he has been wallowing in his misery. In the previously aired Season 2 Episode 6 of the show, we saw that Max is yet to clean Georgia's blood from his carpets, for fear of letting go.
Even though Helen (Freema Agyeman) has been extending her hand in help, Max has been refusing to take it. However, recognizing that he is being difficult, Ryan agreed to let her help him in any way she wants.
She decided to start off by sending him some help to clean his house, and even though Max considered it for a second, he decides not to let them in.
It is clearly difficult for him to accept help, and expect to move on because he doesn't know what lies after that. While we feel for him and understand that he needs to take him time to heal, some fans online have been rushing him to seek help.
One woman, who was on the same boat as Max a while back, writes that it has been difficult for her to watch Max go through the things she did in real life and wishes for him to move on from his late wife.
"I lost my husband and I wanted to die right with him and we had a small baby girl just like Max and I had to get myself together for that precious one cause I was all she had. My faith family and friends and my darling baby got me thru and Max you got to let your grief go cause your Dam Fam is there [sic]," wrote Sharon Clay on YouTube.
She added how [Helen] Sharpe is trying to be there for him, but every time he almost gets to the place of accepting help, "you take her head off your getting a little under my skin. I love you Max but you're going to have to go to The Garden on the roof and just have that talk with Georgia and release all your heartbreak so you can try to move on my friend."
We certainly feel this fan's frustration, but will the writers? Hopefully, we will see Max taking his mental health seriously and actually seeking help, when 'New Amsterdam' airs on Tuesday, November 5, night.
