Love Child–Season 2, Episode 5

I felt that this episode was a filler for the next three remaining episodes of the season. This episode focused on character development more than anything with Viv starting her job as a Nurses’ Aide at the hospital, Shirley in the process of divorcing Colin and dealing with an awkward encounter with Eva, Joan’s reaction to Shirley sleeping with Patrick, Martha’s interactions with Bowditch, Patricia further dealing with her grief and the introduction of Eleanor.

This episode focused on again another thing going wrong with Annie on the road to motherhood. I did feel for Annie as Deanna’s brief disappearance wasn’t totally her fault (although it wouldn’t have happened if she didn’t leave Deanna with Chris, not that I’m judging just making an observation on the sequence of events) and it’s every parent’s worst nightmare, however I’m wondering how long the writers’ focus on Annie’s mistakes will go on for.
