With Mother's Day approaching, we looked to our favorite TV shows for some characters who just need some mom time.
These characters are struggling, or they need advice, or they just need to cry on their mom's shoulder. We (almost) all have been there, right? Sometimes, after a long hard day, you just need your mom to make you believe in the world again.
And then there's the other characters; the ones who misbehave. They need to fix their poor attitudes, and to make them believe in themselves again.
Below are our favorite characters who just need some mom time.
Clarke Griffin - The 100
Clarke takes the world on her shoulders, and her mother is nearby, but they never seem to have any time together. Where are the scenes of Clarke crying on her mom's shoulders over the burden she's taken on, or the scenes where they just sit and reminisce about old times on the Arc before their lives went to hell? It's much needed on a show as dark as this.
The Baudelaires - A Series of Unfortunate Events
The Baudelaires have been through hell and back; their parents died in a fire, they're being hunted by Count Olaf, and every guardian they've had has proved themselves useless. It's a miracle these kids are so smart and strong, they're the only things holding each other together. They just need their mom back.
Oliver Queen - Arrow
After Moira was murdered by Slade, Oliver kind of lost every adult he could rely on. Instead, he became Thea's makeshift parent and took on the responsibility of caring for her in their mother's absence. Now that he's begun killing again in Season 5, Oliver needs a visit from his mom to set him straight and put him back on the path she believed he always could follow.
The Conrad Sisters - Nashville
As their mother just died, life without Rayna is going to be hard for Maddie and Daphne. Maddie is beginning her singing career, and without her mother's advice, it's going to be a lot more difficult than it would've been before. Daphne is just a teenager, and she's going to start acting out and making poor choices since the focus will be on her sister. They just need their mom back.
Barry Allen - The Flash
Barry considering killing Savitar is proof enough that he's in need of some mom time. She could always set him straight, and now with his father gone too and his relationship with Iris progressing, he needs someone solely on his side to help him; not just with being the Flash, but with Iris, too. He needs his mom.
Clary Fray - Shadowhunters
Clary's mom was murdered recently, and really, Clary just needs some time with her mom. That's the only parent she's ever known, and she didn't even really know her since she didn't know about this secret world. Before she had a chance to learn everything from her mother, she was taken from her, and now it's too late.
Kara Danvers - Supergirl
Alura may not have been the best mother, but she was certainly always there for Kara. Kara's relationship with Mon-El is going down a rocky road, and she lost her job at CatCo, and while her mother may not understand Earth's customs, she could give Kara the support and comfort she needs to think about what to do. Even Eliza returning would be good for Kara.
Alison DiLaurentis - Pretty Little Liars
Alison's mother is probably the worst mother on Pretty Little Liars, but it's still her mother. She may have buried her alive, but she loved Alison. Now that Alison is becoming a mother of her own, she could really use her mother's advice, plus everything else that she's gone through recently. Crazy learns from crazy, and Jessica and Alison are certainly that.
Sara Lance - Legends of Tomorrow
Sara had to make the tough call not to save Laurel from Damien Darhk, and she has a team counting on her to lead them through a rough time after they've messed up time. Where are the visits to her mom for some advice, or even just to relax and count on her mother for support? Sara doesn't seem to have a relationship with her mom anymore, and that's hard for her, especially after all she's been through.
Annalise Keating - How to Get Away with Murder
Annalise just needs to sit down and lock herself in her momma's house. Being framed for Wes' murder is enough to cause that, but she's also seen her husband's murder, covered it up, covered up several other murders, was shot, and it's surprising she's not crazy yet.
Callie Foster - The Fosters
Callie just keeps getting herself in touble. She needs to sit down, listen to Stef and Lena, and relax and count on her foster moms to take care of her. She never settles down long enough for them to, and that's on her. She needs some mom time, and now that she's made the stupid decision to take the place of a girl that was on her way to become a victim of human trafficking, she just needs to count on her moms more than ever.
Spencer Reid - Criminal Minds
Reid was framed for murder by Mr. Scratch, and his mom is sick and all he wanted to do was try to save her. He should've be spending her last days with her, but instead he was in prison while she was suffering, wondering what happened to her son that was visiting her often.
Norman Bates - Bates Motel
After his mother's death, he's been having blackouts and his mind has created "Mother" in his head that threatens to take over. He really needs his mother back, alive, and maybe then he can recapture some normalcy.
Daisy Johnson - Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Daisy's biological mother tried to kill her with her superpowers, and then she lost her biological father too. Her boyfriends have both died, and one of them betrayed her and the team.

Sophia - Girlboss
Sophia's life is a wreck. She almost lost her apartment, got the "hern," and then her business suddenly took off and she was learning to balance running a business on her own with her own shenanigans. Her attitude is poor, her life is messy, and since she doesn't have a relationship with her father or mother, maybe some mom time would do her well.
