It’s hard to believe there is only one episode left of The Bold Type. While Kat and Jane are probably right where we want them to be, Sutton definitely isn’t.
There were a lot of tears from “Don’t Turn Away.” First, with Sutton (Meghann Fahy) in therapy and then telling Richard (Sam Page) how she felt to see him so happy. Then they both started to cry, so my tears were uncontrollable. Then there was Jacqueline (Melora Hardin) handing Scarlet over to Jane (Katie Stevens). The writers were really pulling at our heartstrings from a lot of angles.
Sutton has struggled this season. She turned to alcohol to cover up her grief of losing Richard, but I’m so happy that she’s getting the help she needs. It broke my heart that she didn’t feel enough for Richard and her father. Not feeling enough is something many of us have felt at one point. It’s a strong emotion to overcome. It starts with being enough for yourself.
While I’m here for a Suttard reunion, I don’t know how I feel about it on the penultimate episode. Did the writers mess with our emotions just to find a way to bring them back together in the end as we all want? Or is it just them having goodbye sex?
I’m nervous about Sutton’s ending. Kat (Aisha Dee) and Jane are thriving, but Sutton is going through some much-needed soul searching. While I love to see her work on herself, it feels way too late in the series to have her get to where she wants, and we want, with one more episode to go.
We will just have to trust the ride the writers have us on and see where it goes in the series finale.
Kat has finally found her purpose again and a job that includes that purpose. This is all I ever wanted for her. She has such a passion for changing the world. I knew she needed to be doing that for a living.
I understand Kat being hesitant about handing over her idea to Scarlet. If someone offered to buy or bring Primetime Addiction under their umbrella, I wouldn’t know what to do. It’s been my baby for almost nine years. No one is going to do that, so I won’t have to make that decision.
It feels fitting that Kat ended right back and Scarlet and in complete creative control of her own vertical. I’m so proud of her.
And Kadena looks good to be the official endgame! This makes me so happy.
Speaking of letting go of babies, Jacqueline is ready to let go of hers. While I’m thrilled that it appears this is Jane’s ending (the promo has her coming to Jacqueline looking very concerned, so we’ll see), I don’t buy that a 26/27-year-old would be getting that big of a promotion. It’s unclear how old she is since we’re not exactly sure how much time has passed since season one. We were told they were 26 in season one, so they have to be at least 27 now, maybe 28.
I do like that instead of Jane ending up with a guy, she’s running Scarlet, which was her first love. There is something very poetic in that.
We have one more night with our ladies to watch them go after their dreams and hopefully get everything they’ve ever wanted.
