The world of Poplar on “Call the Midwife” is at times a fairly difficult one. It’s a place where you are worried about being judged, being a target, or of course being isolated. No one wants to feel alone, and this show does at times make you feel isolating at times you need help the most. The women of Nonnatus House can only do so much.
On Sunday night’s new episode of the PBS drama, one of the stories that we saw illuminated the most was one where Sister Mary Cynthia had to realize that the best thing she could do after being attacked on the streets was to report the incident, even if it did make her a target of being hurt further. She was one of many targets, and there were so many who ere afraid to break the cycle. This is why it was so important for her to do so, and for the remainder of Nonnatus House to rally behind her in some way. Luckily, they did.
Were there some other highlights in this episode? Sure, whether it be Dr. Turner realizing that smoking is bad for you to the further development of the Barbara / Tom relationship. Still, this was an episode mostly all about knowing when to speak up, and also knowing when it is right to fight for what you believe in. These are themes that are also going to carry over into the final episodes of the season, and hopefully also season 6. After all, this show has already been renewed.
Also, let’s hope that Sister Mary Cynthia is an inspiration for other people.
