'The Bold Type' Season 4 Finale: What lies ahead for Jane, Sutton and Kat on the once-celebrated show?
Season 4 of 'The Bold Type' is now finally coming to an end. The penultimate episode of the Freeform show has disappointed its fans rather than impress them or even maintain their interest. And now, the finale decides if the fans will continue watching a new season or if they will abandon the show.
The previous episode had, through five small chapters, shown the different stages of love that each of the protagonists were in. Richard Hunter (Sam Page) left Sutton Brady (Meghann Fahy) after a massive, emotional disagreement about children. Their story is one that often stands true for couples who have a substantial age difference - one's wishes and ambitions do not necessarily match the other partner's. While Richard had really wanted children, Sutton didn't. And so they parted ways.
A promo released by the network ahead of the episode airing had shown Sutton weeping for Richard, but whether their relationship will survive this tide, can't be known for sure.
Jane Sloan (Katie Stevens), on the other hand, now finds herself in a sudden romance-of-sorts with her junior Scott Coleman (Mat Vairo). Scott had confessed his feelings for her in the previous episode. Jane too was attracted to him and was teased about the said attraction by her friends throughout the second half of the season. Will this confession lead to a full-blown romance?
While this turn of events had largely upset fans of the show, many had pointed out that it is not in her character to commence a relationship that will sabotage her career. However, it is really Kat Edison's (Aisha Dee) new love affair that had disappointed them.
A left Liberal lesbian, Kat is now head-over-heels for Ava Rose (Alex Paxton-Beesley), a Republican. This fusion of sexualities and its politics hasn't entirely stayed true to neither characters nor the narrative of the show and fans have called out the great injustice 'The Bold Type' had done to its Black LGBTQ lead.
In a promo the show shared, Ava and Kat are indulging in some very heavy flirting hinting that they might show whether this romance will see the light of the day.
But should it? We too have expressed the damage this choice had done to its only Black lead.
Where will the Season 4 finale lead the protagonists of the once-celebrated show?
'The Bold Type' will air its final episode of season 4 'Not Far From The Tree' on Thursday, June 16, 2020, at 10 pm ET /PT on Freeform.
