So far on “Call the Midwife” season 5, we have specifically seen the Trixie character (played by Helen George) do everything that she can to move on into the future, without really thinking too much about the past.
However, what happens specifically when the past confronts her? This is something that could come up on the next new episode when Tom re-enters the picture as a love interest for someone else. Specifically, Barbara! The synopsis below for the episode teases what to expect, and also how typhoid could cause massive problems throughout Poplar:
“A outbreak of typhoid erupts, and suspicion over who the carrier could be threatens to break apart a closely knit family. Sister Winfred faces a personal dilemma when a local teacher is revealed to be pregnant by a married man. When the woman takes matters into her own hands, Sister Winifred is forced to consider the role her own prejudices may have played. Meanwhile, Barbara inadvertently agrees to go to dinner with Tom, but is wracked with worry about how Trixie will react.”
In theory, we hope that Helen George’s character will be able to recognize that if Barbara and Tom is happy, then maybe she will be able to accept it. However, it could be difficult for her when insecurity is one of the reasons things fell apart between her and Tom in the past. Hopefully, she will not fall back in to some of her past demons; as of late, she has used her role as a keep-fit instructor as a way to distract from her past in alcoholism.
