'New Amsterdam' Season 3 Finale: Max and Helen finally kiss but fans ask 'where is the sex'
'New Amsterdam' Season 3 ended on a high note with Max Goodwin and Helen Sharpe finally sealing the deal with a passionate kiss
The finale episode of 'New Amsterdam' starts with a time jump of one month, where we see Dr Max Goodwin (Ryan Eggold) leaving a voice message for Dr Helen Sharpe (Freema Agyeman) and what a message it is. It's full of all the emotions that fans have been hoping for from Max and Helen over the entire last season. Clearly, distance makes the heart grow fonder as we see Helen has been in England settling her niece Mina (Nadia Affolter) into college at King's College, Cambridge. Helen calls Max back after hearing his voice message and tells him she's been doing some fantasising of her own about all that she wants to do with Max.
But as always, things are not so simple when it comes to Max and Helen. Just before Helen is set to leave, she realizes that her mother who lives in England has been unwell for a while with a persistent cough. Helen immediately takes her mother to a clinic when she begins coughing up blood. Max has problems of his own when he realizes that after getting his cancer checkup he can't find his wedding ring.
Fans started to get worried. One fan on Twitter said, "Why i feel like helen gonna stay in london... #NewAmsterdam." Another fan tweeted, "Wait. Helen’s going to stay isn’t she And then it’s going to be long distance Sharpwin next season… #NewAmsterdam."
However, some fans didn't think Helen would necessarily be alone in London. The clinic that Helen takes her mother to for a checkup seems to be exactly the kind of place that Max and Helen could improve together. So will 'New Amsterdam' be in London next season? Fans thought it was possible. One fan tweeted, "So is Max and Helen about to move to London?! Is he about to turn that clinic around?!!!!!! #NewAmsterdam #Sharpwin." Whatever happens to Helen and Max however fans are happy that Max's ring is finally off. One fan tweeted, "I'm glad the ring is missing Sorry not sorry #NewAmsterdam."
Max explains to his friend Dr Floyd Reynolds (Jocko Sims) that the ring still means something to him, but Floyd explains to Max how he did the same thing with his engagement ring with Evie, but then he realized he wasn't holding onto it out of love but out of guilt. Will Floyd's inputs help Max let go of his old relationship and make more space for Helen? Fans were certainly hoping so. One fan tweeted, "I’m choosing to see Max losing his ring as a symbol of being open to new things and moving on towards happiness and love. #NewAmsterdam."

But initially, that doesn't seem to be the case for Max and Helen. Helen ends up returning from England but Max clearly has got cold feet about a new relationship after spending the day looking for his wedding ring. But just as fans were about to explode with rage at Max's constant doubts, Max thankfully decides enough is enough and runs back to Helen. They finally have the passionate kiss fans have been waiting for all season. Fans couldn't have been more excited. One fan tweeted, "MAX GOODWIN FINALLY TOOK OFF THAT RING AND KISSED THE LOVE OF HIS LIFE #SharpwinTheMovie #NEWAMSTERDAM."
Another fan tweeted, "Did we just end the episode like that?! Where is the sex? Where is the all the things he’s been dreaming of?! The I love yous?! #Sharpwin #NewAmsterdam."
For fans who are waiting to see Helen and Max get more intimate, they will have to wait for Season 4 of 'New Amsterdam'. There is no word yet on when the new Season will air and with such an action-packed finale we're sure fans can't wait.
