If Not Now (#12.11)
12 May 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I was sure from the start that Luka and Abby will keep the baby. But I really like how they went through with it in this episode. Showing all the second guessing and what they were worried. The scene at the end when Abby tells him she kept it was also beautiful.

It was also great how they added the story about the girl who got pregnant after a rape. it was so well done, her horrible Christian parents still wanting to force the child on her. It was great to see Luka helping her our, even though he is a catholic himself. He handled this situation greatly. And it was very well written how he made her not feel guilty about it.
