In NBC’s medical series ‘New Amsterdam,’ Dr. Floyd Reynolds shares his life with Dr. Linda “Lyn” Malvo within a polyamorous relationship that also includes Lyn’s husband Dr. Claude Baptiste. Even though his and Lyn’s intricate togetherness starts as a casual relationship, it becomes solid when she becomes pregnant. Lyn makes her two partners decide against determining the identity of the father to not change the dynamics of their relationship.
However, in the sixteenth episode of season 4, Lyn meets Reynolds with a revelation that shakes him. Since the turn of events is expected to change the course of the surgeon’s life, one must be eager to know whether it will conclude the character’s storyline, paving the way for Jocko Sims’ exit. Let’s find out! SPOILERS AHEAD.
What Happened to Dr. Floyd Reynolds?
Upon deciding to not move forward with a paternity test, Reynolds starts to take care of Lyn as she struggles with concerns regarding her complicated pregnancy. On the other hand, Claude tries to find a new job and eventually accepts an offer from a hospital in Denver, Colorado. He also informs Reynolds about his intention to move from New York to the Western state with Lyn. On the same day, Reynolds meets Lyn, who informs him that he is the birth father of her baby.
Reynolds knows Lyn’s potential move to Colorado will distance him from his own child. He may feel forced to accompany the couple to the Mountain West if he wants to be with his child as a father. As someone who has left New Amsterdam to move to San Francisco to join Evie Garrison, his ex-fiancée, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Reynolds does the same to be with Lyn. If that’s the decision Reynolds makes, admirers of the character may need to worry about the surgeon’s future in the show.
In addition, the intolerable rules and regulations implemented by Veronica may not be helping Reynolds to stay in New Amsterdam. Lyn and his unborn baby’s potential departure from Reynolds may make him realize that there’s nothing that connects him in the hospital for him to not think about moving to Colorado. So, will Reynolds move from NY for the sake of his baby? Does the possibility indicate Jocko Sims’ departure from the show? Let’s see!
Will Jocko Sims Leave New Amsterdam?
As of yet, neither NBC nor Jocko Sims has released a statement regarding Reynolds’ supposed departure. Rather than forcing Reynolds to move from NY, the real identity of the father of Lyn’s baby is expected to make Lyn stay back with Reynolds while Claude moves forward with his plan to relocate to Colorado. Upon knowing that Reynolds is the father of the baby, Claude may not wish for Lyn and her unborn baby to accompany him. He may realize that his troubled and dispiriting married life with Lyn will only come second to Reynolds’ place in his wife’s life as the father of their baby.
If that’s the case, we can look forward to Lyn deciding to stay with Reynolds, expecting their child together. They are likely to continue their career in New Amsterdam, which will dismiss any concerns regarding Sims’ supposed exit from the show. On the other hand, Claude may return to New Amsterdam if Max succeeds in forcing Veronica to resign. Such a development will result in three doctors continuing their life in the hospital together, without hurting their polyamorous relationship. Considering these possibilities, we believe that Jocko Sims is likely to continue featuring in ‘New Amsterdam.’

Who Is Hannah in Night Sky? Why Does Cornelius Call Her an Apostate?
Portrayed by Sonya Walger, Hannah is one of the most important supporting characters in Amazon Prime Video’s ‘Night Sky,’ Even though she is introduced in episode 7, titled ‘Lake Diving,’ she becomes a crucial part of the plot by the time the first season concludes. After escaping from the most secretive and dangerous cult in the world, Jude comes to Farnsworth, Illinois, in search of his father, Gabriel. He later discovers that a truck driver dropped Gabriel off at a location in Enfield, Michigan. Jude travels there with Irene and Denise and discovers that it’s a bed and breakfast establishment. Its owner is Hannah. Here is everything you need to know about her. SPOILERS AHEAD.
Who Is Hannah?
Hannah introduces herself as the owner of the bed and breakfast establishment. She informs Jude and the others that Gabriel came there 15 years earlier. He worked as a handyman, and they had a relationship, but ultimately, he moved on. She seems to be still bitter about it. However, it soon becomes apparent that she is not exactly what she claims to be. Hidden somewhere in the hotel, a man named Paul is keeping surveillance on all the guests.
Hannah later has a long conversation with Jude about Gabriel and lets him stay in the same room his father once occupied. There, Jude finds the codes to his father’s possible location in a copy of ‘The Count of Monte Cristo.’ The following morning, when Jude and the others depart, Paul follows them.
The season finale reveals that Hannah used to be part of the cult just like Jude and Gabriel. And now, she heads an organization that fights the cult. They don’t interfere when Cornelius threatens the Yorks and Jude. However, after he is subdued and placed in the van that Stella and Toni took from Nick, Hannah and her people intercept them on the road. Stella tells Hannah that she is no longer a guardian of the cult before she and Toni are taken away. When Hannah speaks to Cornelius, it becomes apparent that they know each other. Cornelius is fanatically devoted to the cult. Even after being captured by the enemy, he is outwardly defiant. However, his eyes give away that he is terrified.
Why Does Cornelius Call Hannah an Apostate?
From the interaction between Hannah and Cornelius and the fact that Gabriel sought her out, we can glean that Hannah left the cult before Gabriel. In the following years, she presumably set up a resistance against the most powerful shadowy organization in the world. She likely knew that Gabriel had left the codes to his location in his room and ensured that Jude would find it. She and Gabriel did probably have a relationship, and she just might be bitter that it ended. But she likely omitted its context. It’s possible that Gabriel was part of her organization before his departure and played a pivotal role in the fight against the cult. However, he has since moved on. For Hannah, the fight continues.
As mentioned above, Cornelius is fanatically devoted to the cult. The phrase “apostate” refers to a person who has renounced their religion. In Hannah’s case, she has left the cult. This is why Hannah — along with Jude, Gabriel, and now Stella — is an apostate to Cornelius and all other active cult members.

Where is Keith Laborde Now?
Vincent Simmons was just 25 when he was sentenced to 100 years in prison after being accused of violently raping Karen and Sharon Sanders — a set of 14-year-old twins — a crime he maintains he never committed. However, as explored in ’48 Hours: Please Don’t Tell,’ Karen and Sharon Sanders insist he’s guilty despite recently agreeing to drop the charges against him and the supposed odd involvement of Keith Laborde. So now, if you wish to find out more about the latter, especially the details of his relationship with the sisters as well as his possible current whereabouts, here’s all that we know.
Who is Keith Laborde?
At the time of the alleged incident on the evening of May 9, 1977, an 18-year-old reported Marine Corps officer Keith Laborde was with Karen and Sharon Sanders, who are his first cousins. He was driving them back home from his place when he picked up a hitchhiker from 7-11, as per their accounts, only for it to end up with him forced into the trunk of his vehicle at knifepoint. Like the girls, once they went to the authorities with this ordeal two weeks later, Keith insisted their assailant was a Black man, whom they all individually later identified as Vincent Simmons from a lineup.
With that said, though, one of their other cousins has since claimed that the trio lied at every step of the way, which is something Keith personally told her at a bar long after Vincent’s conviction. “He told me that he had consensual sex with one of the girls and locked the other in the trunk,” Dana Brouillette stated in a sworn affidavit. She later explained, “He had gone down Little California Road, and he locked Sharon in the trunk, and he said the sex between him and Karen was consensual. He said, but the other one was a little hellcat… [She] put the scratches on his neck.”
Dana actually believes Keith, Karen, and Sharon concocted the story of a Black man attacking them to justify the noticeable scratches, along with the state of their overall appearance that night. But Karen clarified the entire situation in an interview with CBS by stating that although she did engage in consensual sex with Keith, it was way before the summer of 1977. She was reportedly just a child back then, whereas he was a teenager, and they “experimented. But that has nothing to do with what Vincent did. That’s two separate incidents. That’s two separate things,” she said.
Where is Keith Laborde Now?
Despite the (seemingly unsupported) accusations against him, Keith Laborde has outrightly denied ever having sex with Karen, according to ’48 Hours.’ He told the production that they only “played around like children,” nothing less and nothing more, but yes, every part of it was consensual. Coming to his current standing, in his 60s, it appears as if the Louisiana native prefers to keep well away from the limelight these days because he purportedly has a family of his own.
Keith wholeheartedly maintains that Vincent is guilty, which is why when CNN approached him for an interview in 2020, he reportedly let his anger out in the form of profanities, threats, and racial slurs directed toward him. Keith concluded with, “This sh*t happened. It’s real. It happened. And I’m not dealing with this no more I’m not looking over my shoulder anymore… I had enough of this sh*t.”
