Hand to Hand Combat
As seen in episode Ha'awe Make Loa, Sabrina and Max met at the bank where Sabrina was a teller. Max was a regular costumer who comes by every Friday to in his checks. He had been trying to work up his nerve to ask her for her number to plan a date, when she gave it to him. However, at that point a bank heist happened and Sabrina got shot. Max called an ambulance and rushed after her to the hospital. There he stayed at her bedside and took care of her. At the end of the episode, Max has prepared the hospital cafeteria with a candle and plates to emulate a romantic dinner. Sabrina kisses him on his cheek and thanks him, saying she loves it.
Afterwards, it is implied that they are in a committed relationship, however, Sabrina is only seen in one more episode so far, Kupouli 'la.
