I kinda hated this episode. Doesn't it justify paedofilia and polygamy? Call the midwife has taken this sort of mission to fight with bullying and abuse of minorities, homosexual people, physically challenged, foreigners, traumatized children who grow up into traumatized adults... Almost every tragic story had a happy, or relieving ending, or at least a logical one. Beaten wives find their way from the abusers, homosexual couples unite, disabled people are cured or found a wonderful place to live in, scared mothers become loving and caring. So, what on earth is Season 7 Episode 4 about??The 15 y.o. girl is forced to sleep with an old man, and to make things worse this man is her cousin's husband which makes her feel guilty. She clearly says that she does not want this man or this child. The disgusting coward of a husband whose family "made him" cheat on his wife, rape a child, etc. The beautiful and hard working wife who would be much better off without all this bs. I was waiting for any kinda ending, but this! How could sister Julienne go and persuade this woman, who has been humiliated throughout the whole episode, to return and be even more humiliated? As the series progressed, the characters progressed with them: we could see how women and children were treated better, husbands rebelled against society, against prejudice, protected wives against their own families if needed. This episode is just a huge throw back to the middle ages. Very disappointing.

It is unfortunate that Trixie has had to drop back into the bottle but in the end it really is the only way to write her out of the show since she is starting to look veryyyy pregnant.
