Love Child–Season 2, Episode 7

This episode was the best penultimate episode of a season of any television show I have ever seen. The chain of events that unleash after Viv tells Annie that Chris is Matron’s son is remarkable. After the revelation, Annie discovers she is pregnant again, which leads to her telling Chris the truth, which leads to the confrontation between him and

Love Child–Season 2, Episode 6

Once again we are provided with a distinct time setting for the episode–ANZAC Day. Therefore four months have passed since the events of the first episode.

So far, all angles of birth at Stanton House had been

Love Child–Season 2, Episode 2

This episode was absolutely spectacular. Sophie Hensser was easily the MVP of the episode, portraying the entire emotional spectrum. From fear when she saw Joan after witnessing Gail’s death in the previous episode, anxiety with her mother trying to take control over her & her baby to pain & determination during the birth scenes, as well as shock at the
