With the pregnant Jade almost at full term, the focus of this episode is firmly on babies. The young mum-to-be has made a decision about what she wants for her newborn, but it doesn’t fit in with what Maggie has in mind and it also causes friction among her classmates, who have their own strong views on the subject.
It’s an opportunity for
to say something worthwhile about young mothers and the emotional trauma of giving up a baby, but disappointingly the scriptwriters have gone down a more predictable, soapy route. Meanwhile, back in school, Barry is being suspiciously well behaved and Michael gets a shock over Christine.
Emotions run high when Jade reveals she plans to have her baby adopted, so Maggie suggests she could take on the child instead - much to Grantly's horror. It looks like there's also going to be a new arrival in the Mulgrew household when Connor finds a pregnancy test, prompting him to do the decent thing and tell Imogen he will stick by her - but when she reveals it's not her test, he realises there's only one other person it could belong to. The pupils of the PRU prepare for their presentation. It's their chance to shine, but Sian worries that perpetual trouble-maker Barry Barry will use it as an opportunity for mischief - or worse.
