We've been shipping Kadena since they first met in The Bold Type episode 1. At first Kat struggled with her feelings, but we were so happy when she finally told Adena how she felt in episode 4. We hoped this would be the start of something beautiful between them. But episode 5 was an emotional rollercoaster that left us with a heartbreaking conclusion. Take a look at our recap below to decide if you think there is still hope for Kadena.
It was the morning after their amazing kiss.
Kat stayed the night and, although things were a little awkward, it was clear there was a lot of emotional energy between them.
Adena felt guilty for cheating on her girlfriend, Coco, but she didn't regret the kiss. Kat felt the same way. Adena decided to speak to Coco as soon as possible.
They were both so happy for her and Kat couldn't stop smiling. But she also knew that things were still a little complicated because of Coco.
When Adena called to say that she hadn't told Coco yet, Kat was really disappointed. But then Adena referred to her and Kat as an "us" and it seemed like things were getting pretty serious.
Adena had a very difficult break up with Coco.
She told Kat they had been together for three years, which made Kat realize exactly what Adena was giving up to be with her. They tried to enjoy their evening together but once Coco started calling, Kat just couldn't handle it. She made a very quick (and awkward) exit, leaving Adena looking hurt and confused.
Kat later explained to Sutton that she felt guilty about breaking Adena and Coco up. Her friend pointed out that Adena could make her own decisions, and that she had broken up with Coco because she wanted to. But Kat couldn't help stressing out over how serious things had gotten so fast.
Eventually, Kat cracked under the emotional pressure.
Kat, who was usually so in control of her emotions, just couldn't handle the weight of the expectations she felt like she had to live up to. She sent a very abrupt message to Adena, which basically ended things between them.
But Adena wasn't going to let her back out that easily. She tried to encourage Kat to talk about how she was feeling, but Kat wouldn't let her guard down. Instead she simply said that relationships just weren't her thing, and that Adena should work things out with Coco.
After attending a motivational workout class, Kat realized she had made a mistake.
Kat wasn’t a quitter, she just got overwhelmed. She didn't have much experience being in a serious relationship, but she realized that Adena was worth the effort. So, she literally ran all the way to Adena's apartment to tell her how she felt.
However, things didn't go exactly to plan. Kat told Adena that she couldn't promise not to mess up their relationship, but that she was "totally in." She was then crushed when Adena turned around and said she was going to Paris to try and work things out with Coco. Will Adena still go to see Coco after Kat's confession, and will that mean the end of Kadena? Will Kat fight for Adena or will she step aside to let her work things out with Coco?
