The Morning Show season 2 has been filled with shocking twists and turns. From Alex coming back to Yanko punching a racist on the street, from Bradley’s brother’s return to Mitch’s fatal car wreck. One of the most surprising, however, might be the relationship between Bradley and fellow anchor (and Alex’s enemy) Laura Peterson.
From their first spontaneous kiss in the car, we never know quite what to expect from these two — and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Week after week, it’s been a joy to see them go from just grabbing coffee to truly confiding in and comforting one another. But, as we all know, dynamics at The Morning Show change fast, and it’s a brutal business. With only a few episodes of the season left to go, we’re wondering if this relationship will last. Here are four reasons we’re confident they’re in it for the long haul and three things that make us a little nervous.
The Morning Show season 2: Yes — they balance each other out
You know the saying that opposites attract, and Bradley and Laura could be the poster children for this. Bradley is fiery, impulsive, and emotional, while Laura is calm, rational, and logical. They each give each other something they need: Bradley brings fun and excitement to the table, while Laura acts as a guiding, grounding force. The combination just works.
The Morning Show season 2: No — Bradley is still struggling with her family
Bradley has always struggled with her family, still caring deeply about what they think about her despite all of their flaws. Like she told Laura last week, she loves them but knows she can’t fix them. However, Bradley is stubborn and never gives up without a fight. Something tells us she may keep trying to fix them no matter how many times they hurt her. With Hal in town and more vulnerable than ever, we’re not confident she won’t find herself sucked back in, raising some conflict with Laura.
The Morning Show season 2: Yes — they’ve already weathered many storms together
From Alex warning Bradley about Laura to Bradley not even knowing she’s queer to their relationship being outed, these two have already encountered a lot of obstacles — and managed to get past them together. Those are some pretty tough challenges in a new relationship, to say the least, and the fact they’ve persevered despite all of them gives us hope they can handle anything life throws at them.
The Morning Show season 2: No — Laura doesn’t want chaos in her life
Laura is very adamant about wanting to keep her peace, even saying that she doesn’t allow chaotic people to be in her life. Though it’s clear Laura truly cares about Bradley, there’s no doubt she has probably earned that “chaotic” label. It’s possible Laura may want to take a break from Bradley while she works on herself before feeling comfortable being together officially.
The Morning Show season 2: Yes — their communication is promising
Bradley has never been the best at expressing her feelings (smashing a vase doesn’t exactly scream healthy communication), but she’s gotten better at it lately. She called Laura to try and talk things out before they went on the air and was honest about being scared of therapy when they had their emotional conversation after Hal’s outburst. These two seem to be on the right track when it comes to talking things out and tackling conflict in a constructive way.
The Morning Show season 2: No — Cory still has feelings for Bradley
It’s no secret that Cory is still crushing hard on Bradley — and may be going a little crazy because of it. (On top of several lawsuits, deaths, an explosive book, and more, of course. But the Bradley of it all certainly isn’t helping matters.) These two have a long, complicated past, and we’re not confident their chapter is completely closed yet. Plus, Cory has been known to pull some less-than-ethical stunts to get what he wants. It wouldn’t be completely surprising if he did something (else) to sabotage them for his own gain.
The Morning Show season 2: Yes — this relationship is different for Bradley
Bradley’s never been a relationship person, admitting that she either screws up or ends it from boredness most of the time. However, she does have a breakthrough after Hal arrives, saying that she wants Laura and is willing to be vulnerable and take risks in order to be with her. It’s clearly serious for Bradley, and we have a feeling she’ll fight and do whatever it takes to hold onto what she has with Laura.
