'New Amsterdam' Season 2 Episode 6: Laura-Floyd shippers may have to wait a bit with Zack and Evie keeping them distracted from each other
We had assumed that Floyd (Jocko Sims) and Lauren's (Janet Montgomery) love story would go at a fast pace, but it turns out that we were wrong
'New Amsterdam', unlike most other medical dramas *cough* 'Grey's Anatomy' *cough* doesn't rely on overworked doctors' angsty romance to give momentum to the otherwise procedural monotony of weekly patients to help and new diseases to cure.
However, we do have two could-be couples whose subtle journey towards each other we are rooting for. Max (Ryan Eggold) and Helen (Freema Agyeman) have a long way to go before they get together, especially since the former's wife just passed away.
However, we had assumed that Floyd (Jocko Sims) and Lauren's (Janet Montgomery) love story would have a fast pace, but it turns out that we were wrong.
In the most recently aired season two episode five of the NBC series, we saw that the rifts happening between Floyd and his fiancé were getting fixed.
In fact, Floyd decided that instead of whining about not having Evie (Margot Bingham) around as much as he would have liked, he is going to support her in her desire to focus on her career.
We would have "aww"ed if we weren't strongly in support of them breaking up so that the Floyd-Laura storyline can get back on track.
Meanwhile, Laura, who was using sex with her physical therapist as a "distraction" from the pain in her leg came to the realization that she is in fact, using sex as a distraction from taking pills and not the pain.
After a soul-searching meditation session with Vijay (Anupam Kher), she decided to say goodbye to that distraction and actually get help for her pain and her addiction at the right places. Despite making sure she will no longer have therapy sessions with Zack (JJ Feild), though, she ran into him at an SA meeting.
Lauren and Zack may stop hooking up at work, but their story is far from over. Our guess is that they are going to start dating each other, and hopefully, this would help Floyd recognize his own feelings for Lauren and fast-track their love story.
Wishful thinking aside, that is still at least a few more episodes away, but we sure are excited to see how 'New Amsterdam' would go about it.
The upcoming Season 2 Episode 6 of 'New Amsterdam' will give us a glimpse into how that story is going to evolve when it airs on Tuesday, October 29, on NBC.
