The Bold Type - Carry The Weight - Season Finale Preview: My Pain Is Your Pain

"People looked at me and I looked so normal, but I don't feel normal, it's like the pain didn't fit my body."

Carry The Weight

Where do I start? This show is so much more than I thought we'd get, it's the perfect mix of fun, adorable characters and serious subjects treated with the utmost respect. This is the kind of badassery we need, bold, fresh, shows that aren't afraid to be the entertainment people want them to be and the reminder they need. It has been a pleasure writing about this show's first season and I really hope it's not the last. So let's get to it.

This time the girls are trying to keep their minds off of the drama in their lives, Kat tries to cope with the decision she made by staying, Jane has a whole new outlook on life, while trying to break the news of her quitting to Jacqueline who continues to push her beyond what she even thinks it's possible, and Sutton is trying hard to have it all be easy for once.

At work Sutton finally gets a chance to shine on Fashion Week, but her personal life is a bit messier, Jane deals with writing a hard article and Kat is just not content with her life, and even in the small things Aisha shines throughout, her face, her clothes, you can tell she's not her usual self even if she's not facing her problems head on.

A lot of big things happen (or are about to happen) to our girls by the end of this episode, but the story of the week was the standout here, it touched on the subject of sexual abuse in a new way, Mia Lawrence, an artist and sexual assault victim is standing in the park with scales on her hands (mirroring Lady Justice) in the hopes that people who've suffered the same trauma can stand up and show there are more people willing to own it and fight it, they talked about coverage, about how important it is to get it right and they got it right.

There was one moment that absolutely floored me, I can't tell you how powerful and gut-wrenching it was, but I guess you'll find out, this is a hard episode, even if they treat the subject in a way that's very in line with the show and they couldn't have extensive monologues, the dialogue was just right, it said the perfect amount of words, and the perfect words, to tear us apart and makes us look at some things in a new light.

There's not a lot more I can say before the episode airs, but I will say this: The Bold Type needs to be renewed, not because of cliffhangers or its entertainment value, which is high, but because we need stories like these, people like this, willing to give this subjects a go and risk losing viewers, because the truth is, not everybody is willing to get political, but most of the things in life are political, whether we want it or not, the smallest rules we choose to support can say a million things about who we are as human beings, and who we strive to be. So, I'll leave you with some quotes and the hope that we all appreciate just how valuable this show is (especially the people in charge of renewing it ;)

"Really? If I had known you'd stop, I would've told you like twenty minutes ago."
"Because I'm a millennial?"
"I am emotionally mature." "Showoff!"
"It would’ve ended my career, or at the very least defined it."

Catch the season finale of The Bold Type Tuesday September 5th at 9/8c.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
