Love Child–Season 1, Episode 2

This episode was solid and a lot less packed than the pilot, which I appreciated.

A couple of weeks have passed, the Moon Landing is around the corner, Shirley’s in-laws are in town and Annie is trying to return to a normal life.

Shirley dealing with her in-laws visiting unexpectedly was filled the right amount of tension and expanded her character. Ella Scott Lynch’s performance was brilliant, displaying realistic anxiety, accurately portraying the collapse & injuries and the way in which she revealed that she had given up a baby before, hence her relationship with the Matron. I also enjoyed Ryan Corr’s performance, showing Johnny’s love for Shirley by carrying her all the way to the hospital, despite the risk of exposing their secret.
