In promoting Scarlet’s breast health awareness campaign, Kat tries to be bold with her message, but is left wondering whether her competitive nature is hurting her cause. Jane confronts past issues and current anxieties when she is tasked with writing a controversial piece about BRCA gene testing. Sutton is determined to excel at her tasks at hand, but when things fall apart, it’s Alex who rushes to her rescue.
Another great episode. Really loving the heck out of this show and how the relationships just make me so happy especially the girls’ friendships with each other. I think this was the first episode where I really felt and sympathized for Jane. That must have been so tough for her to go to that interview with her history with breast cancer at the back of her mind.
Her losing it in front of Jacqueline and in front of everyone was a shock, but it happened at the heat of the moment and she’s lucky Jacqueline is an understanding boss because she probably would have gotten in serious trouble, even fired, for that display of emotion. Loved that Jacqueline reached out to Jane and revealed a little bit about her personal life by inviting her to her place and meeting her family. I teared up when Jane said what she wants is for everyone to know that whatever she’s going through is scary.
Great advice on Jacqueline’s part to tell Kat to back off a bit on how she was handling breast cancer awareness on their social media account. She’s not saying it’s wrong, just to try a different approach and to show their support for those who are affected by it. This of course leads to Kat and Sutton joining Jane to get herself tested. Seeing the two of them being there for Jane and being her rocks made me teary-eyed.
Oh wow, they went there with Alex having feelings for Sutton! Of course I want them to be together, but I thought it would take a lot longer for them to actually get there, but here we are. I really love their chemistry and how much more compatible they are compared to Richard and Sutton. I do really like Richard and Sutton, too, but there have been times that Richard hasn’t been there to show support for Sutton and if this continues, their relationship will not last long.
Alex giving Sutton the idea about the security cameras and him trying to help convince that guy to let them watch the tape was so great. I want to see more scenes of them just hanging out and enjoying each other’s company. I may or may not have squealed a little bit when Alex said that it’s too bad Sutton is with Richard because he would have kissed Sutton right there in the back of the cab. 🤗 I just hope the writers don’t screw this up because I really want Alex and Sutton to be endgame. Please no cheating stories!
Lastly, I know the show is shot in Montreal (someone correct me if I’m wrong, but that’s what’s on IMDB), but I have to commend the show for really making it look like the show is filmed in NY because the outside shots are authentic and are really NY, not just look like NY. Even the cabs are correct right down to the license plate matching the number on top of the cab. I do have a feeling they’re doing a lot of green screen magic when they have outside scenes because there is a subtle difference between the actors and the background where you can just see where reality meets virtual reality. Anyway, I appreciate the show for going out of their way to go the extra mile in really making this look like it’s shot in NY.
