‘New Amsterdam’ Spoilers Season 5: Jocko Sims voices Floyd/Gabrielle

dr Floyd Reynolds once again puts his heart in for a woman who may not be available New Amsterdam.

In the show’s recently aired fall finale, Floyd and traveling nurse Gabrielle became even closer, but at the same time, the date of their move from New York City was also approaching. However, compared to Floyd’s most recent relationship with Lyn Malvo — a polyamorous relationship in which she became pregnant with Floyd’s baby and moved away with her husband — could managing his situation with Gabrielle be a piece of cake?

Below, star Jocko Sims weighs in on Floyd’s romantic life and whether he’ll try to convince Gabrielle to stay in New Amsterdam.

TVLINE | At the end of Episode 10, Floyd’s father tells him, “Go for the girl.” Will he follow his father’s advice?
Yes. I mean, isn’t it time for Floyd to finally find some love? Now we’re building on whether it would work or not. I hope it does. But he will definitely try. He will try. But of course it would make sense to try to find a way to make everything work, right? Work with dad and work with the girl.

TVLINE | This relationship with Gabrielle started out as this casual, fun thing. How invested is he in it and how deep are his feelings for her at this point?
Well, I have to say that Floyd really made it a point to be serious about finding a lasting relationship. So he’s a bit scared of this one because she’s not only a nurse but also a traveling nurse. She gets paid bonuses just to get up and leave and go somewhere else. That worries him a bit.

TVLINE | And she keeps bringing up the fact that she has “X” weeks until she leaves. As that date approaches, is he feeling more and more restless? Is he thinking, “How can I convince her to stay?”
We know historically that from the start, Floyd is the type of person who just goes with his heart or his loins. [Laughs] He initially delved a little deeper into Bloom than he thought fit. The same happened to Lyn Malvo, who turned out to be a married woman. And so I don’t think the fact that this is a traveling nurse would ultimately stop him from pursuing it vigorously. And of course it will cause all the good conflicts.

TVLINE | All those women you mentioned are all very strong women. This is clearly something that attracts him. At the same time, Gabrielle is a little bit different. What do you think particularly draws him to her?
Now that you asked that, I think there’s a bit of bloom in her approaching him about his stuff. When they first met, she told Floyd that he was basically seeing Dr. Flores had to apologize for taking over her procedure that she performed on him. And also the fact that she was basically just pointing out that these were very capable women, both his mother and Dr. Flores, and she let him see that, and he liked that. He liked that very much. When he first meets Gabrielle, he wakes up from the procedure and says, “What’s your name?” he was very intrigued, and so was she [doesn’t tell him her name] and walks away Like “Challenge accepted!”

TVLINE | Gabrielle is looking for fun. In the past he wanted to get married, start a family. He even tells her that on a personal level he is not where he thought he would be at this point in his life. How much is he struggling with the fact that he has feelings for this woman but may be at odds with his own desire to settle down?
I think Floyd’s relationship with Lyn last season is open. I’m glad we’re having this conversation because it’s like, “Where do I end up with that in terms of character?” and I think Floyd has moved on. He started out by saying he wanted a traditional family, a black family and kids, and he ended up in a polyamorous relationship, and it was very different. [Laughs] So this is a walk in the park. He can handle it.

New Amsterdam spoilersTVLINE | After this episode, Floyd and his father seem to be in a very good place. Do they have more fighting ahead of them? Or have they passed a tipping point in their relationship?
For the most part they seemed to have found a good spot, which is great. [When his dad moves out], that’s hard because I remember acting that scene and it’s written that he’s scared of losing him and his father says something very poignant. He says: “Last time I went for selfish reasons. I went for myself But this time I’m going to you’, and I took it like this, ‘I’ll be back. I’ll be there.” … [His father] Being bipolar is not going away. We’ll have to deal with that at some point. But I know that you will see his father again.

TVLINE | How did this experience with his father change Floyd’s views on the course of his own life?
I think even before his father came into his life, in some ways his experience or lack of connection with his father made him who he was. Finding out about this relationship with his father was important to Floyd, especially after he gave birth to a child. I know that more than anything, it was the reason he wanted to be there for his child, which they should write more about. We have to bring the child back. [Laughs] But I think if anything, it taught Floyd that when it comes time to have a family of his own, he will definitely do whatever it takes to keep them together.
