                            'The Act' episode 3 preview: The beginning of Gypsy Blanchard's rebellion against her mother Dee Dee

In the second episode of Hulu's 'The Act', we saw Gypsy Blanchard (Joey King) learn the truth about who she really is. She learns to lie to her mother Dee Dee (Patricia Arquette) and begins to live a secret life on social media sites.

She also begins to understand that she is not a child anymore but a woman. Her curiosity about boyfriends, her age and even the food that she is allowed to eat grows. One night she sneaks back to the kitchen and has a taste of cola and ice cream, both of which she is not supposed to have, especially not directly.

Food for Gypsy is prepared by her mother and injected through a pipe into her system.

The third episode of the show will take Gypsy's risque moves a step further.

 

Gypsy has discovered the world of social media and has created her own account without the knowledge of her mother. She sneaks out of her room at nights and steps away from the wheelchair that she has been chained to for the longest time.

She will begin to understand the meaning of attraction, especially after her chat with Lacey's (AnnaSophia Robb) friends about the things that they do without the knowledge of their parents.

There is a lot that Gypsy will have to catch up on, following years of believing that she couldn't eat, walk, talk or socialize like other people. All of this will result in Gypsy trying to get further away from her mother.

The episode will also feature Gypsy dressing up as Cinderella to attend the comic con like she always does, but will the series feature the true story of how Gypsy made an escape for the first time during one such comic con events with a man that she had befriended?

It would feature a grave error on Gypsy's part, which is discovered by her mother because we have seen Dee Dee tie Gypsy up in the trailer for doing something that she wasn't supposed to.

Also, this is the beginning of how Dee Dee's world comes crashing down. From her daughter who never questioned her before to now acting out against everything that Dee Dee tries to do - there is a lot of anger and frustration that will build up in Dee Dee. In the coming episodes, we will also see how Gypsy makes friends with Nick Godejohn, the boyfriend who committed the murder in real-life and was sentenced to life in prison in 2018.
