New Amsterdam Season 3 Plot

Max Goodwin and Helen Sharpe, two of New Amsterdam’s most prominent doctors, have been at odds since the outset. Even when Max was married to someone else, there was something unique about Ryan Eggold and Freema Agyeman’s relationship that couldn’t be overlooked.

When Max’s wife passed away, it began to gently open the door for fans to feel a little less bad about recognising the apparent link between Helen and him. However, there was still a long and risky road trip ahead of them, which included that embarrassing moment when Max walked in on Helen kissing Cassian.

New Amsterdam season 3 ending explanation

Sharpwin appeared to be a sure bet as all those amorous voicemails piled up in the finale’s advertising materials. Finally. But nothing is ever simple. Helen’s mother became ill unexpectedly, placing her on a whole other continent from Max for the most of the hour. Meanwhile, he was frantically hunting for his “lost” (on purpose, whether unconsciously or not) wedding ring.

Two physicians nearly collided in a corridor just as it appeared Sharpwin would not only not get together in the finale, but would also not be seen together. And they exchanged the cutest grins on the planet…only for Max to spoil it all by telling them about his day.

Helen appeared to be not just dissatisfied, but also little devastated (same). It was another of Freema Agyeman’s performances that demonstrated why we don’t deserve her: Helen’s face immediately collapsed, and the way she retreated inside herself, keeping herself back for the rest of her talk with Max, was truly lovely to witness.

It was the type of finale episode ending that utterly, completely drew viewers in for the few precious remaining seconds. Sharpwin was certainly going to happen, or maybe not, yeah definitely not, hang tight… Wait! YES. Max and Dr. Sharpe experienced another of those “moments” after returning to Helen’s house, where he attempted to say goodbye and leave but kind of…couldn’t. He said goodnight to her a second time, then lingered as she laughed at his evident ignorance before leaving.

When Max did ultimately walk away, he didn’t go far: he took the decision to go on, to walk away from his past, and to discard reminders of a love that had ended. After all, the vows were “till death do us part,” therefore there was no need for him to carry around his remorse over falling for someone else. He didn’t need a reminder of his previous relationship when his actual other half was only down the street.

Sharpwin has always been a couple that relied on quiet moments, looks, and telling “us” on a rooftop. So, it was only natural that, before they could become New Amsterdam’s power couple, Max needed his own, alone, quiet moment to remove his ring and decide whether or not he wanted to embrace the rest of his life.

Dr. Max Goodwin put his long legs to work and raced back to Dr. Sharpe’s in a scene reminiscent of Harvey Specter having an epiphany and dashing off to Donna Paulsen’s doorway before it was too late. But it wasn’t about the world’s sexiest hookup for these two—we can only hope for that later. It was all about acceptance, harmony, and pure romance. The time in which Goodwin and Sharpe just gazed at each other and breathed in each other’s presence before ultimately taking that one more step toward each other was probably the most beautiful interaction Eggold and Agyeman have given us as Sharpwin all year. That’s a lot to say, but it’s both accurate and not quite enough.

We often say in dance that linking steps, or transitions, are equally as essential as, if not more crucial than, the flashier ones. Sharpwin exemplifies, and has always exemplified, how a TV connection is formed in those transitional periods. They are the breath before the kiss, the look that says, “Do you feel this thing, too?” and the small pause before walking away.

These scenes for Max and Helen, like every forehead kiss for Mulder and Scully or cup of coffee for Castle and Beckett, pulled viewers in. And it was because of them that Goodwin realised it was time to discover how much better his life might be with Sharpe in it, “in all the ways that matter.”

At the end of the day, it’s often the person who has been by your side, even in your darkest moments, who causes the world to crumble. Isn’t it right, therefore, that the conclusion of New Amsterdam Season 3 coincided with the opening of that door for Sharpwin to just be?
