This recap of Netflix series The Letdown Season 2, Episode 3, “He’s a Girl” contains significant spoilers. You can read the recap of the previous episode by clicking these words.


“He’s a Girl” is showing how the long-distance marriage is frustrating, especially for Jeremy (Duncan Fellows) who keeps sending photos of his genitals, without realising he is sending it also to Audrey’s (Alison Bell) mum who has the Cloud password. Everyone is wondering why he’s sending the photos while flaccid.

So with Jeremy having a bit too much fun with the smartphone, Audrey lands a temporary job, which means finding daycare. Now in case you do not know, nursery costs an absolute fortune, and as Jeremy points out, she is working for paying for daycare to work with no profit. But as “He’s a Girl” markedly exemplifies, Audrey still needs a life.

Audrey gets a role where she has to research gender-neutral public toilets with a demanding deadline, but unfortunately, the daycare gives Stevie a nasty bug, meaning she has to be in quarantine for ten days. She relies on her friend — a reformed drug dealer — to help with the report.

As for Martha (Leah Vandenberg), who has been quiet up until now, she is suffering from a run of bad dates — mostly because she’s a lesbian and has a baby, and she’s not entirely sure how to gauge it with her prospective partners. Episode 3, “He’s a Girl” sees Martha finally coming out to her family, who give her the rundown of how disappointed they are. She does eventually land a big date, which is dismantled when the woman sees all the baby stuff. She may have found someone by the end of the episode.

The Letdown Season 2, Episode 3, “He’s a Girl” demonstrates the impossibilities of managing your life while being a full-time parent.
