Spoilers ahead for the penultimate episode of New Amsterdam Season 3, called "Fight Time."
Only one episode is left before New Amsterdam heads back into hiatus and fans begin the wait for Season 4, and "Fight Time" just guaranteed that Reynolds' story heading into the finale is pretty complicated. Reynolds has found himself drawn more and more to Dr. Lyn Malvo, whose open marriage offer definitely doesn't fit with what he has always envisioned for his future. He held fast to his determination not to cross any lines since she has a ring on her finger, but it wasn't easy on him. Jocko Sims opened up to CinemaBlend about whether Reynolds could bend enough to start something with her.
Reynolds is in a pretty unfortunate situation given that he and Malvo have genuine feelings for each other to go with the attraction, and the connection is still there despite his best intentions and a not-entirely-helpful conversation with Bloom in the ED. When I asked Jocko Sims if Malvo's open marriage is something that Reynolds could bend on despite knowing that he wants a different kind of relationship, the actor shared:
Poor Reynolds was stuck as soon as he formed an interest in Malvo while she wasn't wearing her wedding ring, and as Jocko Sims said, somebody's got to give if the story is going to move forward for them. Or, of course, move backward, but Sims has also explained that he's just rooting for Reynolds to be happy. Whether or not being with Malvo as the outsider to an open marriage could make him happy is an entirely different matter, and it should be interesting to see if he does indeed bend or even break before the final credits roll on Season 3.
Interestingly, Jocko Sims had no idea going into Season 3 that the plot between Reynolds and Frances Turner's Malvo would turn into what it has become. Sims and Turner explained how far ahead into their storyline they knew when they started building the relationship, saying:
As for what New Amsterdam has in store for Reynolds and Malvo in the Season 3 finale, only time will tell. The episode description reveals that Reynolds will receive a dramatic offer, but fans will have to wait until the Season 3 finale airs on Tuesday, June 8 at 10 p.m. ET to find out how New Amsterdam will leave their story heading into Season 4.
The end of New Amsterdam Season 3 will mark yet another medical drama airing its final episode of the 2020-2021 TV season, but TV isn't running out of primetime options even as finale season continues.
