Morning Show’s Reese Witherspoon and Julianna Margulies Have a Spark in New Clip

In an exclusive clip from The Morning Show’s next episode, it looks like Reese Witherspoon’s Bradley and Julianna Margulies’s Laura still have the chemistry that brought them together last season.

When The Morning Show returned for its anticipated third season, it was clear that Reese Witherspoon’s Bradley Jackson and Julianna Margulies’s Laura Peterson had parted ways following their relationship in season 2. However, The Advocate has an exclusive clip from the upcoming fourth episode of the breakout Apple TV+ series that proves the chemistry that brought the iconoclastic on-air personalities together is still roiling, offering hope for more of the queer women storyline.

In a scene from the episode titled “The Green Light,” Bradley and Laura sidebar during a party for the TV Upfronts (an event where TV execs and talent woo advertisers for the upcoming ad period). The party that Bradley dubs “boring” is at the new home in the Hamptons of her boss Cory Ellison (Billy Crudup), who also outed her and confessed his love for her in the last season. Needless to say, the situation is messy. In the scene, Laura intrigues Bradley with tales of smoking and doing cocaine at Upfronts in the early days of her career before suggesting they explore Cory’s inner sanctum — the “king’s lair,” as she puts it.

An Emmy winner for The Good Wife, Margulies joined The Morning Show in its second season as a news anchor and an anchor (pun intended) for the more unmoored characters on the series like Bradley, Cory, and Jennifer Aniston’s Alex. At the time of season 2 in 2021, The Morning Show’s showrunner, Kerry Ehrin, said she had yet to write Bradley’s love life. Witherspoon, an executive producer on the show along with her long-time friend Aniston, said of her character, “I think she’s queer.” The series takes on topical subjects including workplace sexual harassment in season one and racism in the current season. With the queer love story between Bradley and Laura, who had been outed and fired from a job in the ’ 90s for being a lesbian, Ehrin wanted to explore how Bradley’s conservative upbringing may have affected her ability to understand her own identity.

While not much is known about what transpired between Bradley and Laura in the time between season 2, which ends when COVID shutdowns went into place, and season 3, which picks up post-pandemic, the clip from the upcoming episode indicates that the couple still has all the chemistry that brought them together.
