To put a finer point on this at (possibly) my own peril: The One Great Danger threatening Sam and Max's friendship is NOT being replaced with different versions of each other. They're cool with that, because it's all the same to them. And they'd be right. No; it's being separated permanently
in whatever guise that may take. No other versions or time travel shenanigans-induced duplicates available to fill in the void for each other's lost partner, ever. That
would be the real tragedy, not the dead Max who's probably living (deading?) it up with the dead Sam who needed the company -- that particular company

Yeah, this. This was perfect.
And also Jake's comment. A hundred times over.
