TV Recap: The Bold Type – Never Walk Away From Love …

The Bold Type
“We’ll Always Have Paris” (Episode 210)
August 7, 2018

I’m finally doing this, recapping the season finale of The Bold Type. Even though I’ve watched the finale three times, putting words to computer for the recap was something I may have been avoiding a bit.

A few things about me, I almost didn’t go to my high school graduation because I wasn’t ready for it to be over. Because, to be graduating meant starting something new. Change and new are hard for me. Another example? I have three books that were sooo good that I didn’t read the end; maybe one day, but that day isn’t today.

When I really like something, I have a habit of avoiding the “end.” So, by not writing this recap then I don’t have to think about how I have to wait ten months before I can recap more episodes of TBT.

Alas, I can only put this off so long [Ed. Note: So long before her editor’s head explodes =)]; soon, Fall season premieres will begin. So, I’m pulling off the band aid and I’m recapping “We’ll Always Have Paris.”  I can do this, ten months isn’t so long. So now that you know a little more about me here …

Oh, wait. Catch up with what happened in the previous episode, “Trippin’” here.  Caught up? memory Jogged? Great! Without further adieu, let’s go to Paris….if you haven’t watched the finale yet you should know there are spoilers ahead.
