Spoilers for 'The Bold Type' Season 4 Episode 9 '5,6,7,8'
'The Bold Type' Episode 9 '5,6,7,8' begins with Sutton Brady (Meghann Fahy) trying to figure out how she would be breaking the news that she plans on moving to San Francisco after her marriage with Richard Hunter (Sam Page). The couple moved up their wedding to the coming weekend after they realized that they didn't want a lavish, big wedding after all.
But Sutton doesn't get a chance to tell her best friends Kat Edison (Aisha Dee) and Jane Sloans (Katie Stevens), who actually immediately begin planning for a bachelorette. The girls plan for a bachelorette dance-off and get in a plush limo to be on their way.
Sutton, however, cannot completely relax and enjoy herself throughout the evening. She had only just heard Jacqueline Carlyle (Melora Hardin) chastise Oliver Grayson (Stephen Conrad Moore) for what happened with the beauty blogger with millions of followers, Alice Knight (Raven-Symoné).
Ever since she messed things with Alice, Sutton has been trying to make amends with Oliver. As it turns out, Alice was supposed to come onboard Scarlet Magazine as their Beauty Editor, but Sutton's involvement had her reject the offer. Oliver took the entire blame for this on himself. Having asked him to ordain her wedding, Sutton cannot have him take the fall for her.
So she spends her entire bachelorette party finding Alice by tracking her own social media. Kat and Jane accompany her, but not without their own concerns.
Kat is still trying to help Adena El Amin (Nikohl Boosheri) get the conversion therapy story out there. An issue close to Adena, Kat strongly feels that if the magazine has the resources to make this story public, legal can find a way out. And that is when she realizes what is happening - RJ Safford (Aidan Devine) has links with a senator supporting conversion therapy. Armed with this new information, will Kat approach RJ again?
Elsewhere, Jane is in the middle of throwing Sutton a grand bachelorette party - it is Jane who arranges the limo from Jacqueline. And because magazines work differently in 'The Bold Type' universe, not affected by time constraints or relevance, Jacqueline asks her to write a story on bachelorette parties.
During the planning, she opens up to the girls about her boyfriend lying to her. Ryan Decker (Dan Jeannotte) hadn't told Jane some news about her brother in the last episode. Jane is evidently bothered by how easy it was for him to lie to her face. By the time the whole evening comes to a close, something dawns upon Jane - that Ryan didn't just kiss that girl on his book tour, he slept with her!
To avoid things from getting worse, Jane had been lying to herself about the sanctity of her relationship with Ryan. But not anymore. She confronts Ryan, but their conversation isn't easy with Ryan spitting the same lies. At least Jane knows better now.
With only one episode left to go for Season 4 to reach its conclusion, we wonder what is to come.
Sutton might be preparing to move to San Francisco, but in an interesting turn of events, Alice wants Sutton to be her personal assistant. But Jacqueline and Richard are pondering if Scarlet must get her on board as a stylist before Alice does. With Ryan's deceptive charm no longer working on Jane, we expect some hard times for Jane.
