‘Unexpected’ Spoilers: Lilliana’s demeanor shocks Myrka, has she forgiven her daughter for being pregnant?
Myrka Cantu, 16, and Ethan Ybarra, 17, had an extravagant baby shower thrown by Ethan’s parents in the January 10 episode of ‘Unexpected’ and after the long wait, it was finally revealed to the expecting teen parents that they were going to have a baby girl. Most importantly, Myrka’s mother Lilliana, who kicked her out of the house after she got pregnant, came to the party to show her support.
As predicted by fans, we saw a soft side of Lilliana as Myrka was getting closer to delivering the baby. Although she did mention teenage pregnancy was not something to be celebrated and such a huge event for the gender reveal was unnecessary as they were going to need a lot of financial support once the baby was born. She also said as long as she was not paying for anything and her daughter was taken care of by Ethan’s parents, her decisions didn’t really matter and rightfully so.
The baby shower ended in happy tears as Myrka and Ethan got emotional when they found out they were going to have a baby girl. Lilliana hugged Myrka and was sobbing too which was surprising not only for Myrka but also for the viewers who have only seen her hard parenting side. In the upcoming episode, we will see Lilliana getting more involved with her daughter’s pregnancy as she visits Myrka and Ethan at his home to check out the nursery for the baby. She seemed genuinely happy and said, “at the end of the day I just want Myrka to be happy.”
Myrka, on the other hand, is skeptical about her mother’s sudden change in behavior and hopes she wouldn’t go back to being unsupportive and insensitive to her like she was before. On the other hand, we have Jenna Ronan who is deemed as the “spoilt brat” by fans, getting affected by her parent’s separation.
Jenna’s father doesn't want his ex-wife to be at the baby shower that he was going to throw for Jenna. But Jenna cannot imagine having a baby shower without her mother’s presence. Previously, we have seen her father give in to her materialistic wishes when it came to buying her a luxury car for her 17th birthday or turning the spare room in the house into a nursery because she didn’t want to give up her bunny’s space for the baby’s crib. But when it came to inviting her mother to her baby shower, which seemed like a considerable wish even for Jenna her father strictly opposed. It made us wonder if all the expensive gifts with which he spoiled his daughter were to make up for the grudge he nursed against his ex-wife and Jenna’s mother Heather.
Well! We have seen Jenna in action before and we know once she is determined to do something no force can stop her. In the next episode, the viewers will meet Heather as she meets her daughter for milkshakes. Her father confesses to the camera that she wouldn’t allow Heather to come to the baby shower. “It’s not gonna happen, not over my dead body,” he says. Her mother’s presence or lack of it in the baby shower will answer a lot of questions about why Jenna’s dad so easily gives in to her materialistic pleasures.
