TV Show: The Bold Type
Episode Title: Three Girls In A Tub
Original Air Date: August 15, 2017
Episode Number: 1×07
Richard is determined to get to know Sutton’s friends outside of the office and invites the girls to dinner, but things don’t quite go as planned. Sutton attempts to network with a new social circle by attending a high tea. While on a date with someone else, Jane comes to a realization about Pinstripe; and Jacqueline is forced to intervene when Kat’s new staffer keeps damaging Scarlet’s social media presence.
So Pinstripe/Jane and Richard/Sutton are no longer? I’m actually very surprised that both relationships ended this episode, but I have a feeling that this is not the last we’ve seen of either guy. Pinstripe might have played it cool that Jane breaking things off with him is not a big deal, but I think there is something deep inside him that would like to pursue a monogamous relationship with her.
As for Richard, I believe Sam Page, the actor who portrays Richard, is in all 10 episodes and is part of the regular cast so he’s not going anywhere. Then again, it might just be in the capacity of Richard as board member that he’ll be seen as in future episodes, but maybe he and Sutton will get back together. I really do like them together, but they’re both right that their current relationship is not really a relationship at all since they have to hide it from almost everyone they know for fear that it would negatively impact both of their professional careers. What a tough situation.
At least Sutton is killing it in the work department by going to high tea and networking like a boss. I laughed so hard when she was high and that she hated being high. That’s my girl. I was scared that she would make a fool of herself at high tea, but no, she impressed her fellow assistants and made connections that she needed for her job (while high on pot, mind you).
Kat firing her first employee was understandable and definitely the way to go. And I’m glad that Kat was hesitant to do it because it’s her first employee and she didn’t want to be the bad boss so I appreciate the reality of the situation. If it was any other boss, they probably would have fired the girl during her first infraction without feeling bad about it.
Loved the two scenes of all three girls hanging out in the bathtub. They all might be single now, but it doesn’t matter because the real OTP of the show is these three girls and their friendship. It’s the purest thing.
