Bad Mothers–Season 1, Episode 6

This episode steered away from the murder and focused more on Maddie and Bindy’s parental issues.

Maddie and Jesse end up having a fight in the playground, which results in Jesse falling to the ground after Maddie grabs her arm. Even though Jesse admits to Sarah it was an accident, she uses it as leverage to get her way in the custody battle by taking a Family Violence Intervention Order against Maddie, which leads to Maddie getting arrested. On top of it all, Maddie ends up losing her job, which sends her into a depressive state and culminates in Sarah confronting Jesse to deliver a veiled threat and harsh truths. After this Jesse apologises, admits it was Phoebe’s idea and didn’t want any of it to happen. They end up writing up an agreement on custody, Jesse admits her faults in their relationship and tells Maddie she has proposed to Phoebe. Maddie pulls herself together to congratulate Jesse. Overall I found this A story to be compelling and realistic, it didn’t surprise me that it was Phoebe’s idea and I thought Jesse would have dumped her after she saw its affects on Maddie. Nonetheless, I’m glad to see Jesse has redeeming qualities and this issue has been resolved.
