The Season 4 finale of The Bold Type is set to air next week and based on a teaser recently uploaded to Freeform’s YouTube channel, it looks like things are about to get complicated.
The television series follows three best friends — writer Jane Sloan, played by Katie Stevens; social media director Kat Edison, played by Aisha Dee; and fashion stylist 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 — and Sam Page as Richard Hunter — an in-house attorney for Scarlet’s publishing company and Sutton’s beau.
In the clip for next Thursday’s finale, Jacqueline, played by Melora Hardin, was seen telling Jane that she is the future of the magazine. The clip then switched to Jane sitting at her desk, complaining to her co-worker that Jacqueline killed a story she wanted to publish. Jane said Jacqueline’s decision was based on personal reasons and it seemed if the story is published, it could have serious ramifications for the older woman.
The clip also showed Kat testing the waters to see how Jane feels about Eva, played by Alex Paxton-Beesley. Eva has been described as an “NRA card-carrying Republican” and she contributed to Kat losing her position at the magazine, but Kat found herself wanting to date her.
“What do you think about Eva? She’s kind of cute, right? In like a gross kind of way,” Kat rambled before the clip switched to a shot of her and Eva having sex.
“Why do I get the feeling that you are more than podcast pals?” Jane questioned.
The clip also showed Sutton returning home for a visit. Earlier in the season, she told Richard that she didn’t want to have children. He packed his bags and left the apartment they shared, as previously reported by The Inquisitr. Sutton said in the clip that she doesn’t know who she is without her husband, and was seen later in the clip hooking up with someone else.
The official synopsis of the episode, which is titled “Not Far from the Tree,” read as follows:
“Sutton visits her hometown but falls into a familiar pattern while there. Jane finds a big story, but it could have serious ramifications for Jacqueline. Kat is reluctant to share her new romance with Jane and Sutton.”
