The virtual ride through the daily life of Paul and Ally Worsley is not always fun and quirky. They have their tough times and today's episode 'No Dad' was definitely on the darker side of the line. Viewers were taken aback to see the traumatic events of two deaths that the Worsleys had to deal with. The death of their pet gerbil followed by the death of Micheal, Ally’s father.

Although people didn’t get to see much of Michael’s character, they knew that he was a fun and cheerful. As Michael is pronounced dead, fans took to Twitter to share their disbelief.

"Holy Hell #Breeders!!!I didn’t see that coming. I don’t know how I didn’t see it coming but I didn’t. It’s like the bus scene in Final Destination. I’m traumatized!!" says a fan.

 "It’s kind of shocking what happened in #Breeders..." adds another.

Yes, it was indeed shocking and least expected. We didn’t anticipate that Luke and Ava (but especially Luke) would have to witness and learn about death twice in one day. In the process of trying to explain life and death to kids and help them manage their emotions, both Paul and Ally go through an emotional journey of their own. But it was most importantly Ally (Daisy Haggard) who won fans’ hearts with her performance.

A fan applauded the emotionally rich content of tonight’s episode and appreciating the lead actor’s performance for the same. One said, "Tonight’s episode of #Breeders was an emotional roller-coaster. Daisy Haggard beautifully portrayed how grief affects people in mysterious ways. What an inspiring performance! @daisy_haggard."

Another fan simply loved the way the episode was handled. It was a little stressful, according to him, especially during a time when the world is under lockdown. He said, "Can’t say watching #Breeders last night helped my stress levels, but it was bloody brilliant... #Lockdown."

While initially, some fans were upset about the language usage on the show, many later realized the deeper significance of the plot. And as it shows, the family comedy-drama is picking up pace and is gathering appreciation among viewers.
