This Thursday's episode of the television series The Bold Type might be setting the stage for a new romantic relationship between Kat Edison (Aisha Dee) and Eva (Alex Paxton-Beesley), based on a sneak peek recently uploaded to Freeform's YouTube channel.
The show tells the story of three women -- writer Jane Sloan, played by Katie Stevens; social media director Kat Edison, played by Dee; and fashion assistant Sutton Brady, played by Meghann Fahy; as they navigate life and love while working at Scarlet Magazine. During the pilot episode, viewers were also introduced to Nikohl Boosheri as Adena El Amin, a proud Muslim lesbian who quickly became Kat's on-again, off-again girlfriend.
Kat and Adena's relationship ended during the Season 3 finale, but the women were forced together again after Adena took a job at the magazine. During Season 4, the two tried to publish a story about a teen who killed himself after being sent to conversion therapy. One of the magazine's board members blocked the story, and Kat released damaging information about him to the public. She was later fired and made an enemy of the board member's daughter, Eva, an "NRA card-carrying Republican," as described by Kat.
During this week's episode, Kat is searching for guests for her new podcast and thinks Eva could really make for an interesting appearance. The two ladies come face-to-face at Kat's bartending gig, and the flirtatious energy is hard to miss during their banter.
