Adena’s back and that doesn’t bode well for Kat’s new relationship with her campaign manager, Tia.

The writers seem to thrive off of ruining all of Kat’s promising relationships.

Breaking up Kat and Adena last season was unnecessary as the reason behind the break-up is still unclear.

And bringing her back simply to throw a wrench in Kat’s current relationship is deeply frustrating.

Tia’s a great girl and someone Kat could have a real relationship with.

Tia was hesitant about entering in a same-sex relationship but decided to take a chance because she fell for Kat.

Admittedly, she fell very quickly and things progressed faster than I imagined, but having Kat dump Tia for Adena would be cruel.

It’s even worse that Kat is second-guessing and withholding those feelings from Tia who never asked to be a part of this mess.

The girls were wrong when they said Adena is “Kat’s Richard.”

Sutton and Richard broke up because of a logistical issue. They were great together, but she didn’t want everyone at Scarlet to assume she got a promotion because she was dating a board member.

Adena and Kat’s relationship, on the other hand, had plenty of problems which took a toll on their personal and professional lives.

Maybe Adena did self-sabotage by blaming Kat for not feeling inspired and booking gigs, but there was some truth to it.

Both of them felt a little constrained in the relationship.

It’s only after Kat moved on from Adena did she truly embrace everything Adena taught her about herself and find herself feeling free.

Kat’s become more confident in not only her sexuality but also how she views herself as a mixed-woman living in America.

She even entered politics because of that confidence.

Sneaking behind Tia’s back to meet up with her ex paints Kat in a terrible light and sabotages any chance she has of winning this election since she obviously cannot do it without a campaign manager.

Kicking Tia to the curb now would be selfish considering how hard she’s worked. Not to mention Kat was the one who pursued Tia in the first place and asked her to stay when Tia handed her a list of replacements.

Jane brought Adena into the fold by hiring her as the photographer for the Pamela Dolan expose.

While they tried to keep the story under wraps, Dolan’s lawyers got wind of it and threatened to sue.

Jaqueline was very persuasive in promising to keep the girls and their image safe from scrutiny, but how can she promise something without being certain she can deliver?

If Dolan is as powerful as these girls claim, I doubt she’ll just go away because a handful of women came forward with claims.

And don’t get me wrong, it’s beautiful and important that they are taking back their power and saving other young women from a cycle of abuse, but I just don’t think they should be told that everything is going to be okay when there’s a chance it won’t be.

Alex put a few doubts in Jane’s mind about Pinstripe, but the scenes felt slightly odd.

It’s evident that Alex has many layers to him — some we still have yet to peel back– and makes a hilarious addition to girl gang, but I don’t understand what he was trying to achieve by critiquing Pinstripe’s book?

Also, when Jane mentioned an affair, the way Alex agreed with her made it seem like he was thinking of starting something with Jane while Pinstripe was out of town.

The whole thing gave off weird vibes.

Sutton was forced to break out of her comfort zone by allowing Richard to help her with her fashion design dreams.

We knew it was going to come down the sewing machine, which Sutton truly needed to succeed in her program.

Richard offered to buy her a really shnazzy one, but Sutton refused the kind gesture only hurting Richard’s feelings.

We later found out that because of her past, she doesn’t like to become reliant on other people for money, but in this case, it’s a compromise she’s going to have to make with her relationship.

I adore that Sutton wants to remain independent despite having a dude who is clearly way better off than she is.

The independence factor makes Sutton, Jane and Kat so relatable and such powerful figures for millennial women.

They don’t need men to buy them sushi, they bought their own damn sushi.

But it’s fine to occasionally let your significant other swoop in with a nice gesture.

In fact, it’s encouraged. Men still want to feel needed and important.

As far as The Bold Type Season 3 episodes go, I would say this has been my least favorite one only because it moved at a slower pace.

Next week’s episode focuses on election day — will Kat win the bid for City Council?

And will she enjoy celebrating with Tia by her side? Or will she risk it all for another shot with Adena?

That is if Adena even offers up a logical explanation for leaving her in Paris.

WATCH: Freeform Drops 'The Bold Type' Fifth and Final Season Trailer

Raise a glass to the final season of The Bold Type.

Freeform unleashed a trailer for the final 6 episodes of the fashion-focused drama and things are heating up between old flames, while new ones are also on the horizon. 

Kat is still trying to get over her problematic hook-up with Ava, while her ex, Adeena, is back in her life. 

After a disagreement about children, Sutton and Richard ended their brief marriage. But it seems that all is not lost as the teaser shows them having trouble letting go (and still hooking up).

I have faith that Sutton and Richard will figure it out because they’ve always been #relationshipgoals. 

Jane’s continuing to find her voice and is possibly, definitely developing feelings for a writer that’s “under her.”

Watch the trailer below now:

‘The Bold Type’ Announces Final Season Premiere Date

The Bold Type Lost Review

Mandatory meeting in the fashion closet. 

The Bold Type previously announced that its fifth season will be its last, and now, we have a premiere date!

Freeform announced the series will return on Wednesday, May 26! 

Per the synopsis, Kat, Jane, and Sutton are “on the brink of defining who they really are and how best to leave their mark on the world.”

Season 4 ended prematurely on July 16, 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

As a refresher, the season ended with Sutton and Richard splitting, Kat hooking up with Eva despite the two sharing significantly different political views and then calling things off, and Jane challenging Jacqueline on a controversial story that involved her husband while also possibly crushing on one of her writers. 

The upcoming final season will be miniature in size as it will only feature six episodes.

‘The Bold Type’ Gets Renewed for Mini Fifth and Final Season

The Bold Type Boss Babes

This calls for one final meeting in the fashion closet!

Freeform hit fans of the workplace drama with a mix of good news followed by immediate bad news. The ladies of The Bold Type are getting one more season, which will serve as a proper goodbye.

The network renewed the series for a fifth (yay!) and final (boo!) season on Wednesday, January 27. 

The Bold Type has been a gift that has truly changed my life,” executive producer Wendy Straker Hauser said in her own statement. “I spent my twenties in New York City working in magazines, so in many ways the show feels very personal to my experiences. I have truly loved writing this show and living in this world. I will miss it terribly, but I am so grateful for the opportunity and glad to know it’s been a comfort to so many people out there.”

According to the network, the final season will see the “trio is on the brink of defining who they really are and how best to leave their mark on the world. Their futures are bright, and their love and support for each other will never change.”

The final season will consist of 6 episodes, which doesn’t seem like nearly enough to wrap up all the cliffhangers of season 4. We’ve spent so much time with these girls — getting to know them, going through the ups and downs, growing and crying with them — that 6 episodes feels like a disservice to fans. 

Even though the fourth season was cut short due to the pandemic, Kat, Sutton, and Jane still had a lot going on

Sutton’s (Meghann Fahy) marriage to Richard was falling apart after the two had a disagreement about children. In a moment of recklessness, she slept with her married high school boyfriend. Jane  (Katie Stevens) was developing feelings for one of her employees and pursuing a controversial piece about an inappropriate workplace romance that Jacqueline told her to shut down. Meanwhile, Kat (Aisha Dee) slept with Ava, the conservative daughter of the former Scarlet president who she exposed for funding gay conversion therapy.

See… many storylines that need to be wrapped up. Hopefully, The Bold Type finds the right way to say goodbye to these fearless, bold, and inspiring women who we’ve come to call our best friends over the years. 

No word on when the final season will premiere.
