Jane learns about “mansplaining” the hard way when she’s invited to speak on a panel of young, political voices, while Sutton is caught in a lie at Scarlet.
On The Bold Type Season 1 Episode 4, “If You Can’t Do It With Feeling,” Kat learns the hard way about discrimination by the police when she’s thrown in jail for a night. Meanwhile, Richard makes a bad (although supportive) move and almost costs Sutton her job in the fashion department.
With the death of Earth-1 Laurel Lance came Earth-2’s doppelgänger, Black Siren, who shares the face of our late Black Canary without the back story and hero standing.
Throughout Arrow Season 5, we saw Black Siren challenge Team Arrow multiple times, even going so far as to pose as Earth-1 Laurel at Prometheus’ orders to try to trick the group and set them up for a trap. Unfortunately, Black Siren was thwarted, but in the last two episodes of the season, we saw her team with Prometheus again against Team Arrow.
After the Supergirl Season 2 finale, Supergirl Season 3 seems to be picking up right away, again, but this time Kara is in a much darker place than we’ve ever seen her.
The Supergirl Season 3 trailer shows Kara saying, “Kara Danvers was a mistake,” which brings us to question: how dark will the series go this season? It seems to be a habit for DCTV shows to emphasize the darkness that being a hero brings in the third season (as we saw with Oliver Queen, Laurel Lance, and Barry Allen), and if past indicators are any example, Supergirl may not be the best it has been this upcoming season. Though that remains to be seen.
On The Bold Type Season 1 Episode 3, Kat was subjected to relentless torment on social media after a tweet went viral, while Sutton worked her ass off as she’s beginning to pursue her fashion dreams. Meanwhile, Jane’s lackluster interview turned into a story nobody will forget.
Join TV Fanatics Yana Grebenyuk and Allison Nichols, Samantha Coley from Tell-Tale TV, Canary Sisters Editor-in-Chief Jay Ruymann, and The Bold Type super fan Ariana as they discuss Kat’s nightmare, Jane’s innovation, and the three relationships.
Jen turns on her best friend, Desna. Virginia plays with fire by leading Dean on. And Roller makes his big escape from Gladys wearing a zoot suit.
Claws Season 1 Episode 7, Escape, proves my suspicions at the end of Claws Season 1 Episode 6, Self-Portrait, correct: Jen and Desna don’t seem to be true best friends. Well, at least Jen doesn’t seem to be one to Desna. Virginia takes her flirting game with Dean a little too far by kissing him. All the while, Roller’s break-out mission ends up a success… or at least it seems.
Ellen, a young adult artist who has faced anorexia nervosa for so long she’s near death, finds herself in a new in-patient treatment center faced with the same struggles as every other film about eating disorders.
To The Bone, Netflix’s new Lily Collins starring film, follows Ellen (later: Eli) near death due to her anorexia nervosa as she enters a battle with herself, with parents that continue to fail her, and a world view where she cannot see the point of continuing life or battling her eating disorder. The film paints eating disorders in a new light: it’s not about losing the weight, or being “skinny,” but it’s actually a much larger and deep-rooted issue.
When Jane is granted an interview with a rising congresswoman, she isn’t given the opportunity to tackle the story she’s aiming for. Thrown for a loop, Jane must be creative and resourceful when finding the story that is going to shock readers.
On The Bold Type Season 1 Episode 3, “The Woman Behind the Clothes,” Jane is given the chance to prove herself, while Kat finally figures out how harsh the internet can be when she’s attacked by trolls for a tweet about VR goggles being aimed toward men.
In the last episode of Claws (season 1 episode 6), Jen flips faster than a robbery heist get-away-driver in an interrogation room. Desna tries to get situated in her new comfortable existence with regular people problems. Quiet Ann’s romance could get everyone caught and Roller’s new best friends is a shock collar.
On Claws Season 1 Episode 6, “Self Portrait,” Desna finally found a good man who treats her with respect and she can’t stop self-sabotaging because she’s used to chaos. Jen sings a new tune now that the drug money has touched her hands. Quiet Ann finally found a woman she wants to try to build a relationship with, but the woman is all kinds of problematic. Virginia finally finds her way into the crew. Roller gets treated like the scroungy dog he is, and lastly, Polly is still being… well, Polly.
For starters, there is discourse when it comes to Laurel Lance from a vocal minority within the Arrow fandom. It is either the shippers who are so invested in their romance or hatred for the actress due to plausible interference of their ship that they cannot see the depths of the character.
They call [Laurel Lance] boring, horrible, and make up so many alternative facts to make themselves feel better and more validated and never stop to see the character for who she is. But that is not surprising. They are like this everywhere. Especially when it has to do with comics. If you are not flashing your chest or have a suit expressing your curves, they don’t care for you. Plus, they are dense so it is by no surprise that they don’t understand the layers and history behind Dinah Laurel Lance. Not just the show, but the character that has been around for decades.
If you are someone who thinks that Black Canary is only fishnets, sass, and a sonic cry, you have failed to capture who the character truly is and what she stands for.
Desna and the crew go up against a rival salon in notorious Florida nail competition. Although the promotional video doesn’t go into detail about why this competition is so important, it seems Desna’s dream future hinges on the results of the competition.
In Claws Season 1 Episode 6, “Self-Portrait,” Desna now has her full focus aimed at her nail empire. Although everything was peachy when Desna went to look at the new salon she would buy, it’s clear the camaraderie has shattered. Her realtor, Mandy gave her two options last episode: get the runner-up salon at discounted price or pay full price for her dream salon. So now, the Desna must win this nail competition in order to attain her dream in starting her own salon.
