The Morning Show Season 3 Episode 3 Recap: 9 Biggest Story Reveals

#7 Yanko is Problematic Again

After his storyline in The Morning Show season 2 where he refused to take proper responsibility for using the culturally appropriative term “spirit animal” while on air, Yanko said the wrong thing at the wrong time once again. Yanko has become one of the most frustrating The Morning Show characters both for viewers and other characters with his ego and tendency to blame others instead of looking inward. In The Morning Show season 3, episode 3, he made things even worse during a staff meeting.

Mia and Stella organized the impromptu meeting with the entire The Morning Show crew to let them express their feelings about the leaked email and racial disparity at UBA. During the meeting, Yanko, who has some Cuban ancestry, said that “race is a fiction” that’s “being weaponized” when they’re really “all mutts.” When Alex said he was derailing the meeting for a spectacle, he said the real problem was “the wokeness.” This was not met well by other characters and may leave both viewers and his coworkers wondering when Yanko’s finally going to leave The Morning Show.

It dealt with systemic racism at UBA after an email from chairman of the board Cybil was leaked where she made a comment about the hiring of Chris. An all-hands meeting to deal with the staff’s discontent led to Yanko getting on a soapbox much to the chagrin of the rest of the group, Nestor was on fire during this scene!
