Partner Track review
“Partner Track” is a mixed show, and the script could do better when it comes to the workplace for people of color. The most annoying thing is that we all know how this love triangle will end. It’s a pity that the male and female protagonists don’t have great chemistry. The heroine, at least she has worked hard for her dream, the workplace is not for making friends, it is very unnecessary to give up her own interests for the sake of friends. The heroine is very down-to-earth and fits the role set by Asians.

Partner Track Ending Explained
Murphy was a nuisance when he came to the company, everyone seemed to know that. They had a great time at Rosecliff and their relationship was so good that Ingrid even said they were love at first sight, but that was a while ago.
When Ingrid was with Nick, Tyler repeated his cue to keep Ingrid away from Murphy. Nick was the perfect partner for her, Murphy was just trouble, and for a while Ingrid agreed. However, as Ingrid spends more and more time with Murphy, she is drawn to Murphy’s charm. However, she didn’t realize from the beginning that the only thing Murphy cared about was himself. When Murphy came to the company, he immediately began working to make himself a competitive partner. He didn’t want any interruptions in the process, which is probably why he ignored Ingrid in the first place.
Throughout the show, we can see Ingrid go to great lengths to resolve the Sun Group deal, and Murphy shows his ability, always behind the scenes, making or breaking the company’s deal. But it was understandable for Ingrid, who thought she was in charge of the case and she had to do more. In the end, however, when the Sun Group deal was completed, Murphy believed the credit would also fall on him, paving the way for him to become a partner.
When Ingrid was arrested for the earring incident, around the time Nick’s marriage proposal and the failure of the diversity party got her into an argument with Nick, instead of asking Nick to bail her, she called Murphy, who promised to All confidential. When Murphy finds out he’s no longer a partner, he decides to use the news of Ingrid’s arrest against her. He told Marty about it, and her dreams of becoming a partner were quickly dashed.
To make matters worse, Murphy not only sabotaged her behind her back, but during this time he also claimed to be in love with her. Not only that, but he reassures her that she is the one worthy of the title, keeping the illusion. At the end Marty revealed that it was the man Ingrid’s beloved who revealed to the company. Turns out Taylor was right, and it would have been better if Ingrid stayed away from Murphy.
