Call the Midwife season 7 episode 8 (finale): A birthday and a funeral

Call the Midwife season 7 episode 8

Call the Midwife season 7 episode 8 is going to serve as the finale for the season — and with that, we hope that there are many happy moments that are coming up. This does, after all, mark an opportunity to see a celebration in the form of Sister Monica Jones’ birthday! Who doesn’t love a good birthday party? It’s absolutely possible that some of the jubilation that happens with this event helps to override to a certain extent some of the sadness that may be out there with some other events that are coming. With a series like this, there is often an influx of pain that does come for a wide array of characters — cases sometimes are a little bit more difficult or painful than anyone would expect.

Below, the Call the Midwife season 7 episode 8 synopsis is going to offer up some more news as to what’s coming up:

The closing of a nearby maternity home brings an influx of expectant mothers onto the team’s books. Lucille meets Olive Mawson (Scarlett Alice Johnson), whose father Stanley Hodgkiss (David Bamber) has a secret he can no longer keep.

Meanwhile Sister Monica Joan (Judy Parfitt) celebrates her birthday.

Ho will this season of Call the Midwife end? While in America we do often see series conclude with some sort of epic, super-dramatic cliffhanger, we would honestly be surprised if there is something like that coming up here. This is more a show that is probably just going to wrap things up in a fairly-conclusive way, given that it’s going to be off the air until Christmas and we don’t think writer Heidi Thomas will want you worried about a character’s future for that long. Not only that, but the nature of the Christmas Special by and large dictates that there is going to be a massive time jump. Events that are happening now may very well fade into the wind by the time the next Christmas Special comes on the air.

The funeral

If you’ve watched tonight’s episode, then you know that Barbara is no longer with us. With that, be prepared to see this character laid to rest within this episode.
