Episode 2 begins with the three women sitting on a bench smoking and having a laugh. They see a woman walk by who looks to be heading to work and Ada mocks her walk. Ada is late for her therapy session and asks Marcel for help. Fabiola learns that her sister has left her niece alone and runs off, leaving Carolanne on her own who suddenly remembers Keven and starts throwing up; she heads to the pharmacy and steals pregnancy kits.
Urinating in the plant pot
At the therapy session, Amélie asks Ada if she urinated in her plant. Ada denies she did but flashbacks show she did highlighting how childish she is. Fabiola returns home to her cousin who is on the floor and she’s urinated on herself. Carolanne gets a call from her mother saying her brother is now out of the clinic and doing better; when her mother mentions her father, she puts the phone down.
When Ada returns home, her drunk mother breaks the microwave by putting metal in it. The next day, she meets Pretzel who is sitting on a car. Pretzel starts coughing badly so Ada gets her some water. It’s evident Ada is living in a broken home.
