The show has often been praised for its nuanced way of handling real world issues. This season was no different... However, a lot of the bold strokes this season makes are then taken back, leaving a more ambivalent impression.
When season two of The Bold Type ended with Kat and Adena breaking up in Paris, I was sad, but I was also hopeful for a bold and compelling new direction for Kat's arc, and I think the early parts of season three hint at that.
