Nominees for the "salacious" thing that buries the Hannah smears:

1) The new book's revelations about Alex,
2) Mitch's practice interview confession gets out,
3) Yanko beating up the street bigot goes viral, or
4) Bradley & Laura...

I have an uneasy feeling they're going to make Alex's back pain a symptom of some other disease. (All while we've been waiting for the first character to start coughing.)

Billy Crudup's face at Hannah's dad's response re: the smears.
Still can't quite figure out Cory's motives though.

I might've mentioned I've been off and on about this show. (Before starting s2, I realized I hadn't even finished S1.)
And this year has felt like so much was exposition about events that happened between the two seasons.

But this episode was chock-a-block with more tense momentum. Many chickens coming home to roost.

I thought the back pain was going to turn out to be a heart attack which would knock Alex out of moderating the debate. Looks like they didn’t go that far, though.

My money is on Cody outing Bradley and Laura, but maybe one of the other things just naturally becomes the big story that overshadows the Hannah smears. But probably with Bradley learning that Cory was going to out her.

Feels like things are moving slow enough (calendar wise) that the season is going to end at the first US lockdowns.

Best moment from the episode was the bus with the Morning Show ad driving behind Yanko at the end of his freak out.
