The Morning Show Season 2 Episode 7 Review: Is This Season 1?

The Morning Show Season 2 Episode 7 called ‘La Amara Vita’ is now out. Written by Kerry Ehrin and Scott Troy, Mimi Leder directed the 50 minutes episode. The latest episode stars Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carell and Valeria Golino. When I checked the translation for the meaning of the episode La Amara Vita, it showed ‘The Bitter Life’.

The synopsis reads, “Alex takes a trip to finally find closure”.

The Morning Show Season 2 Episode 7 Review Contains a Big Spoiler

After being AWOL in the previous episode of The Morning Show Season 2, we finally meet Alex Levy, aka Jennifer Aniston. She’s still freaked out and anxious because of Maggie Brener’s (Marcia Gay Harden) book. The previous episode ends with Chip visiting Alex’s apartment and finding out she’s gone somewhere without informing anyone.

Well, as expected, Alex lands in Italy to confront Mitch, played by Steve Carell. Before he knocks on his door in anger, Mitch requests Paola (Valeria Golino) to delete the interview they shot for the documentary. Alex’s visit astounds Mitch, but she is not in a mood to do any greetings. TMS host yells at her former work partner for his answer to Maggie.

If you remember, when Maggie asked Mitch about his relationship with Alex, he told her to ‘f*ck off’. Maggie is writing a book on Alex, giving her severe anxiety and back pain because of the Mitch part. Alex yells at Mitch for his response to Maggie instead of denying such speculations. They both have heated arguments over the book, his family, behaviour and Paola too.

Until they were fighting and Alex stormed out of his place, I liked the episode. However, when she returns due to the unavailability of an immediate flight due to lockdown, the duo shares some hearty conversations and a dance! I am not happy from the beginning how the makers are trying to show the ‘human’ side of a sexual offender. But the rest of the episode was an unpleasant viewing experience.

In reality, no one would have any ounce of sympathy for someone who exploited multiple women sexually. But the show, which became a benchmark of #MeToo representation, has been doing many things wrong in The Morning Show Season 2. In the next paragraph, I will reveal a very big SPOILER. So read-only if you have no issues with it.

After the “heartwarming” conversation, Mitch and Alex again have a huge fight over the same issues. She leaves for her early morning flight, and Mitch goes to Paola, and they have sex. The Morning Show Season 2 Episode 7 ends with Mitch’s death. Now, I didn’t like the way they added such a dramatic effect to show his death. The man was more annoyed by how his life was ruined instead of accepting that he ruined the lives of many women. Are we supposed to feel bad for him?

The Morning Show Season 2 Episode 7 Review: Final Thoughts

In the latest episode, both Steve Carell and Jennifer Aniston give a phenomenal performance. But after 20 minutes, the episode becomes unbearable. The makers have lost track of what they wanted season 2 to be about. Alex may have got her closure but it shouldn’t have taken the makers 7 episodes. They literally started the episode by showing how she’s happy with her dog in an unknown snowy place! If they took 7 episodes to carry on with the drama of the first season, when will the real season 2 begin?

The Morning Show Season 2 Episode 7 is now streaming on Apple TV+.
