Season three of The Bold Type starts with a bang, literally.
While some series premieres may beat around the bush and keep you hanging when it comes to revealing the fates of your favourite characters since you last saw them, The Bold Type opts to skip right over the foreplay and get to the main event.
Meaning that every burning question you had about where The Bold Type would go in season three is answered in the first ten seconds of the premiere episode, enabling us to jump right into the drama of the year.
At the end of season two, Scarlet Magazine writer Jane (Katie Stevens) was torn between two men. There was the sweet Dr. Ben (Luca James Lee) who offered to forge their relationship status so she could use his insurance to undergo fertility treatments, and Ryan, AKA “Pinstripe Guy” (Dan Jeannotte) her sex-fling-turned-serious-relationship man who also offered to pay for her fertility treatments.
Do people not just give flowers anymore…? I’m so out of the dating loop, it appears.
Anyway, season three picks up a few weeks after we left the girls in Paris and the episode opens with Jane sexily tumbling around in bed with her chosen guy, moments before his face is revealed.
The writers have actually made a very smart decision here by cutting through any of the will they/won’t they hoopla and giving us Jane’s final relationship decision right off the bat, allowing season three to deep dive into all the shiny new issues brought up by her burgeoning serious relationship instead of living in the limbo of the past.
