'Workin' Moms': Anne and Lionel's commitment ceremony lays the groundwork for a conflict-filled season four
Anne is very organized while Lionel has a think-out-of-the-box attitude and this gives their relationship a very interesting and potentially volatile dynamic
Netflix's 'Workin Moms' has enthralled its audience with its gripping depiction of the lives of working mothers and their struggle to find balance between work and home.
The Canadian series which released on CBC television in January 2017 became a part of Netflix's 'must-watch' in February 2019.
The story revolves around the life of three mothers—Kate Foster (Catherine Reitman), Anne Carlson (Dani Kind) and Frankie Coyne (Juno Rinaldi)—who are dealing with challenges of being mothers who have a career.
Anne Carlson is a very straight-forward, to-the-point, and no-bullshit psychiatrist whose life has been turned upside down. She even prescribes herself some pills just to cope with it—perks of being a psychiatrist, I guess.
Her character, however, brings a very strong, independent and confident feel to motherhood.
Anne and Lionel fell in love and started living together after her marriage to another man ended.
Their relationship was not bound by a legal commitment, they lived together to raise their two children.
Anne has a very confusing relationship with her 9-year-old daughter, Alice.
Alice is at the stage where she needs her mom, it takes Anne some time to realize this.
They begin to bond and build a stronger mother-daughter relationship which gives Anne an opportunity to explore her motherhood.
Anne and Lionel have been so open with each other in regards to their relationship that they did not want it to be defined by a label.
When Alice finds out that her parents are not married, she begins to question her being their child.
Anne and Lionel are united with one another at a commitment ceremony organized by their daughter.
Anne decides to have her own office so that she will be able to give time to her work and home equally.
Her character, that was once so headstrong, starts becoming softer towards her children and her lover.
Anne is very organized while Lionel has a very think-out-of-the-box attitude. This gives their relationship a very interesting dynamic.
'Workin' Moms' may have some surprises in store for us following Anne and Lionel's recent commitment.
The series, with its realistic portrayal of the lives of these three mothers who are all so different from each other, is a heartwarming watch that one can also learn something from.
The fourth season of 'Workin' Moms' is set to air in winter 2020.
