The Baby Episode 3 ‘The Bulldozer’ Recap
This episode of The Baby introduced Natasha’s sister Bobbi, who is currently adopting a child with her partner Sam. Natasha also meets her friend Mags at a local playpen/adventure playground. Natasha tries to get rid of the baby with Mrs. Eaves’ help, who seems to know a lot about the baby’s history of terrorising other women and their mysterious deaths.
Natasha’s interactions with the play areas and other mothers were hilarious and all too real if you’re new to life and energy. Mrs. Eaves shrieking silently towards Natasha when the baby finally fell asleep was like an absurd buddy comedy. It was fascinating to see the good and bad that can come from circles like Mags’s with other mothers.
There’s a sense of community and connection there, but it can also harbour negative perceptions of anything other than motherhood (such as buying the “wrong” items or the best this or that for development). After the shockingly funny stroller accident/loss of the bitchy mom’s finger, Natasha and Mags’ conversation in the parking lot was so important and added so much to the episode.
The Baby showed a variety of motherhood and the path to it. It’s evident in Natasha’s sudden responsibilities, Mags’ struggles with isolation and friendship, and Bobbi and Sam’s desire for it in a slowly evolving society. Natasha, Bobbi, and the adoption agent had a lot of good exposition.
It was interesting to see how each person dealt with anxiety and difficult situations. The introduction of Sam and Bobbi’s relationship came before any Natasha and Bobbi scenes, and it was a welcome moment of calm in the episode.
The Baby Episode 3 Ending Explained
This episode’s ending is so tense and necessary that it puts Natasha in a difficult position. Her struggle between letting go of the baby’s responsibility, even if it meant it died, and the instinct to protect something defenceless was human.
The struggle seemed to represent the complexities of motherhood and “womanly responsibilities” when it comes to children. Natasha isn’t just one example, and that’s what keeps me excited to follow her journey in The Baby.
