'New Amsterdam' Season 3 Episode 13: Helen refers to Max and her as 'us', but it's not enough for fans
Dr Helen Sharpe (Freema Agyeman) and Dr Max Goodwin (Ryan Eggold) have some unfinished business, namely a kiss that was interrupted on the last episode of 'New Amsterdam', and fans were hoping to see that the kiss was not missed on this episode. However almost as soon as the episode began, it was clear that for both Dr Max and Dr Helen work and parenthood, always takes precedence over romance.
The episode began with Max thrashing out details of a custody arrangement with Luna's grandparents who have decided that they want Luna to live with them as they feel Max is an unfit parent. As if that wasn't stressful enough, the rest of the episode saw Max running around New York literally, trying to ensure that 1,000 vaccines that were about to expire get distributed. Dr Helen also had her hands full with trying to guide her niece Mina (Nadia Affolter) through her college admission process, after Mina makes it clear that she has no interest in staying in America. Dr Helen also helps Dr Floyd Reynolds to diagnose an extremely rare condition in a young girl with a heart transplant.

'New Amsterdam' Season 3 Episode 7: Helen decides to focus solely on her niece, fans say 'it doesn't make sense'
Fans saw where this extremely hectic episode was going. One fan tweeted, "Am going to make peace with myself now we might not get any scenes of #sharpwin tonite nor the kissing. Wait for the drag script writers @ 11pm Eastern time #NewAmsterdam."

But a silver lining was when Helen, who is attempting to boost Max's morale about Luna's custody, tells him that all the things that are worth it in life come with a fight, like Luna, like vaccines, like 'us'. For some fans, this was enough. One fan tweeted, "Webster dictionary now defines "us" as #sharpwinEndgame.."

For other fans, however, the frustration was real. One fan tweeted, "Ok, im ready. If "us" is the only bit of #Sharpwin we get , imma scream #NewAmsterdam."
