Our ladies of The Bold Type have been a mess this season. Jane has struggled to find her managing style, Sutton has been spinning out of control since she separated with Richard and Kat has been lost. Who knew tripping on mushrooms would be the thing to get them back on the right track.
Let’s start with Jane (Katie Stevens). She almost dated one of her employees while ignoring the other. It wasn’t a great start to her vertical. Then Scott (Mat Vairo) left because he couldn’t just work for her, and Addison (Christine L. Nguyen) was ready to accept another job. It isn’t a surprise that Jane acted weird trying to figure out how to become Jacqueline (Melora Hardin).
I was so excited for Jane when she got her own vertical. It was an exciting step in her career. We love when these ladies are succeeding.
Jane hasn’t exactly succeeded in each new step, though. She struggled to find her first assignment as a writer, but she always comes back better than ever. She certainly did that this time after literally tripping in the office.
I won’t lie it was a lot of fun seeing our three ladies tripping, even if it’s insane to think of this actually happening.
The majority of “Day Trippers” didn’t do much for moving the plot forward, but it was so funny. And it got our girls to exactly where they needed to be.
Jane stepped up and finally decided to stop trying to be Jacqueline and be herself. I think she will be a great mentor now that she’s finding her way.
I don’t necessarily agree with Kat (Aisha Dee) quitting her job, but I am happy that she has her focus back. I’m interested to know what her plan is. Could she be creating a non-profit? She definitely should be changing the world, but she also needs money coming in to pay her bills. This storyline still has some holes to fill in. But she definitely couldn’t end the series, still a bartender.
Sutton (Meghann Fahy) has been the most lost of them all. She has every reason to be messed up with her pending divorce from Richard (Sam Page). Sutton was so afraid of not feeling anything from the microdose she put more in! She’s so desperate to feel anything other than what she’s feeling.
Then she decided to drink a glass of wine while at work to take off the edge of her trip. That was a terrible idea. She’s so lucky Oliver (Stephen Conrad Moore) is her boss and just sent her home and not fired her on the spot.
He then told Sutton precisely what she needed to hear. Sutton has been breaking my heart this season. I’m glad she realizes that drowning her sorrows in alcohol is not a great way to cope.
It’s hard to believe that we only have two episodes left. It doesn’t seem like enough time to get these characters we love to the end of their stories.
Younger is very similar to The Bold Type and just ended its run on June 10. It also didn’t feel like it was coming to an end, with just one episode left. It wasn’t necessarily perfect in its delivery, but Liza and Kelsey were getting significant career opportunities. That’s probably all that we ever hoped for them and The Bold Type ladies.
Jane is getting her big break to be interim editor-in-chief. Kat is finally following her passions again. Sutton, unfortunately, while she’s taking a big step to help herself, she’s not where we would like her to be. Two episodes don’t seem enough to get our happy, confident stylist back.
How do you hope Sutton’s story will end? Tweet me @MandyTTCarr or comment below.
