After being fired, Zoey was able to get him his job back, but he realized he didn’t want to work there anymore. He loved being a manager and thought that leaving the company after several years was good for his growth and confidence. Season 2 can finally explore Skylar Astin’s Max in an entirely new environment. Maybe he will have the intention of meeting new people who could then be incorporated into the show. Anyway, some distance from SPRQ Point is good. He’s finally starting to take his own path, a journey that really started to take shape in the season 1 finale, and that’s just the next step.
