The Morning Show Season 2 Episode 9 Review Contains Mild Spoilers
Alex Levy (Jennifer Aniston) finally meets Cory and Stella (Billy and Greta) after her sudden disappearance post the grand welcome. Cory and Stella are ready to have Alex back, but she tells them that March 17th will be her last day as the co-host of The Morning Show. March 18 is the date when Maggie Brener’s book on Mitch and Alex will be out. Alex tells Cory that his “feminist” hero will be cancelled after the book release as everyone will know she slept with a sexual predator.
In Bradley’s absence, Alex agrees to co-host TMS with Laura, where they teach people with an expert’s guidance on how to wash hands to prevent coronavirus infection. The ladies also discuss their differences and everything that went wrong for so many years. Bradley is dealing with her brother’s mess, who is quite ungrateful. It really aches me to see her character go through this weird storyline as Reese is underutilised in this season.
Paige holds a memorial service for her dead ex-husband and requests the TMA team to attend it. While many hesitate to attend, for some reason, Alex decides to go there. If that wasn’t enough, she confesses to meeting Mitch and telling everyone how he realised the repercussions of his actions. Bradley gets a chance to interview Maggie about her book on Mitch-Alex. The interview segment is my most favourite part of The Morning Show Season 2 Episode 9.
Today’s episode was better than the last 5 episodes. While there is some Mitch drama, I don’t understand why Alex is being so irrational. She is all prepared to get cancelled that she doesn’t think twice before doing something. Yet, the TMS host gets into panic mode quickly when things go wrong. Yet again, Jennifer Aniston leaves an impression with her outstanding performance where she displays a varied range of emotions.
After so long, Reese Witherspoon got some good scenes as Bradley interviews, Maggie. Those 5-6 minutes brought back the real Bradley Jackson, who we all missed this entire season. The last 30 minutes of the episode are thrilling and riveting. I missed this about TMS, and I wish they’d done this earlier. Today’s episode is what I expected the entire season to be.
The Morning Show Season 2 Episode 9 Review: Final Thoughts
Overall, ‘Testimony’ is a better episode than what we’ve seen so far. The performances are amazing, and it builds a great curiosity to show what’s next. Alex reminds us why we must think 10 times before opening our mouths. The last scene is chilling, and I can’t wait to know what happens with the hosts of The Morning Show.
