If you love “Call the Midwife,” we imagine that the past week has led to all sorts of emotions and complicated feelings. (Warning: There are massive spoilers ahead if you are not caught up on this season!)
While we have learned that British television can be very unpredictable, and you have to be prepared sometimes for things to happen that you are in no way ready for, it was still a jaw-dropping moment to see Alec die off-screen just when it looked like everything was going to be okay following his fall. Now, the challenge for many of the characters is going to be trying to find a way to adequate move forward, and not give in to any of the troubles or the pain that they believe to be suffering from.
When it comes to how Jenny is coping, Jessica Raine had her own interesting take on it. Just take a look below at her comments, which come to us courtesy of the Daily Express:
“Grief manifests itself in many complex ways … There’s a period of horror and numbness, and then the awful realisation that he’s not coming back. And, of course, guilt that she never really gave herself to him in the way he wanted … In the end, she feels she needs time out from Nonnatus House to recuperate.”
As for whether or not we can expect Jenny to move forward with another man in the future, that is something that Raine is for the time being not tipping her hat on one way or another. All she will say is that Jenny is a modern woman, and she will not be put romance ahead of her own career ambitions and pursuits. This will be an interesting thread and series of stories to follow as we push further and further along in the season.
