As a 36 year old mother of a 16 year old, we watch together faithfully. I have suffered a stillbirth, and I had to leave the room during part of this episode when adrian was crying with her mother. Honestly I thought it was well done, portrayed honestly, true and with feeling. I thought the amount of emotion was intense and leaving it for just a few moments was appropriate. I also appreciated the fast forwarrding of two months so as not to see the immediate time period of grief, we all now they were grieving but its not entertaining and what we want to see as viewers is their lives going on, so I thought it was done respectufully. And ya know, the fairy tail doesn't always work out and I think that msg needs to get out there...your boyfriend probably won't marry you or stick around, you will be up late and have late night er visits, medical issues, and sometimes babies die. Its sad, but when kids pretend to be grown ups they have to be prepared for grown up stuff.
THIS PART OF THE SEASON WAS REAL LIFE COME ON PPL EVERYONE KNOWS THAT THIS STUFF HAPPENS IN REAL LIFE. YES I CRIED MY EYES OUT WITH THIS ONE I HAVE TWO KIDS AND I DONT KNOW WHAT I WOULD DO WITHOUT THEM. BUT REAL LIFE THIS HAPPENS ALL THE TIME AN THIS SHOW IS ABOUT REAL LIFE.
I have been a faithful Secret Life watcher since the beginning but I can't bring myself to watch this episode yet. I am almost 7 months pregnant right now so I can imagine all the scary thoughts and nightmares I would have after watching it. :( I really want to catch the rest of the storyline though so I don't get behind.
i was heartbroken and thought the same--did the writers have to go that route...they could have had the baby have a disability and let adrian deal with not have a "perfect" baby
As a mother who has been through the tragedy of a still born I believe that this episode was very enlightening. So many teen girls and even adult women think having a baby is "no big deal" and "that won't happen to me". But in all reality it can happen to ANYBODY. This episode hit home in a big way. My husband and I lost our daughter 2 years ago and the pain and heartache is still there. I pretty much dehydrated myself with the river of tears while watching this episode. Bravo to the writers for showing that NOBODY is invincible to this heartache.
I think that adrian and ben shouldnt have lost the baby in the storyline. this is a drama show, but having a stillborn would worry some people who are pregnant, women who watch this show wouldnt have thought that anything would have happened that is bad.. i would have never thought this show would have such a shocker like that.. the secret life writers should have wrote the storyline as adrian and ben having their baby and choosing to give it up, or adrian and ben keeping the baby and continuing to live together and then show all the problems and struggles that happens when you try to live on your own when your still very dependent on your parents, and show the struggles that happens when leo quits catering to his sons every needs and makes him learn on his own and lets him and adrian face how life really is when your young and trying to make it with a baby, although your already married.
Just watched this episode about twenty minutes ago. This obviously didn't come as a shock. For those who thought it did... prolly don't know what it takes for writers to keep the audience interested. What we are interested in is real life drama situations. This is a real life situation and I for one am even more excited to watch future episodes. We are now really gonna be able to dig deep into each character and see their take on a real life situation like a stillborn, and how they are going to handle themselves. God would never give us something we could not handle. Adrian and ben are gonna come out of this, stronger, more mature, and really get to know more about themselves and eachother. Whether they stay ttogether or not. I would love to see them stay together, but just like real life situations it always doesn't work out that way. So I guess we will see.
what they went through is reality it happens more then you know....
as a woman who had a misscarriage it hard for people to watch even in a storyline. This show finally show a side of teenagers getting pregnet that is real. I think it was the best show they have done. Keep making it real and you will again more viewer instead of making it kool for teens to have babies
To answer the question it necessary to kill a baby just to shake up a one hour drama on ABC Family well it might not have been necessary but let's remember there wasn't actually a baby in real life so talking about adoption as an option is, in my opinion, a bit silly. It made for excellent television and is sure a lot more realistic than the teenager who gets pregnant, then married and then lives happily ever after in her expensive condo with her rich boyfriend. That tragedy happens is an unfortunate fact of life and this sure made me bawl my eyes out. I think the cast did an excellent job in portraying that really difficult scene. Can't wait to see what happens next season.
