In said letter, Helen tries to explain to him why she left him at the altar and stayed in London.however, is unclear about his motives and only generates more questions for the protagonist of ” amsterdam”.

« What I did was unforgivable. For you, for our friends, for the gentle Moon. It was never my intention. None of this was what he wanted. Everything I told you was true. Everything we have is real, but so is this thing that kept me in London. He stopped me from marrying you. I would like to know what it was. I wish I could tear it away from me, erase it, so I could be with you because you deserve all the happiness in the world. I wish I had an explanation to help ease your pain, but none came.“, he explained.

After reading the letter, Max tries to understand Helen’s words, but can only think of the good times. However, thanks to a tip from Iggy, begins to remember that at various times when he was happy, Helen was distant and distracted.

In this regard, Ryan Eggold told TVLine: “It’s not entirely clear why he left and I think that’s something we’ll talk about later. But I believe that [él] he realizes that he’s looking at him through rose-colored glasses, that he’s focused on those moments that were perfect and everything was still going well, and that he didn’t realize any problems that existed or of his desire. to get away or things like that. I think I wanted it to work so badly that I was a little blindsided by it. So I think waking up to that brings you a lot into the present and allows you to start moving forward again instead of getting stuck.”.

« Max can’t help but work things out. He’s got to help, he’s got to fix them, and that’s usually an amazing quality, but sometimes loving someone is letting them go, and I think that’s something Max is learning right now.“added the protagonist of”amsterdam” in conversation with NBC.
