When Alex, in an attempt to get some leverage while re-negotiating her contract, refused to go on, Alison offered to go on for her.

Alison was interviewed by Vicki Manderly, whom the network had hired to figure out if anyone was implicating anyone other than Mitch. Alison said she'd never slept with Mitch, but he was a flirt. So is she and so is Alex, in fact. She liked having Mitch around because he was fun.[5]

Alison later joined a dinner party at Cory's place to celebrate Alex's return. When they sat down to dinner, they started talking about the novel coronavirus. Alison joked about it, saying it was like having the flu. She'd had SARS and said it was no big deal. Daniel told her not to joke as people were dying. Daniel wanted The Morning Show to report on it despite it not being exciting because it was important. The conversation quickly shifted to the Iowa caucus and then the impeachment trial, before Cory interrupted and called everyone's attention to himself so he could toast Bradley and Alex.[10]

Mitch's Death[]

When they received an unconfirmed report that Mitch had died in a single-car accident in Italy, Mia gathered everyone together to tell them about it.
