Breeders has returned with a two-part premiere that proves it’s still one of the best and most underrated shows on television. Having set up a new status quo, with Paul ostracised from the family for the benefit of Luke’s anxiety and suddenly faced with a much more easygoing existence, Breeders season 3, episode 3, titled “No Comfort”, has a firm foundation to build on. Here’s where we’re up to:
- Paul is staying at Ally’s mum Leah’s house because Luke can’t stand to have him in the house.
- During his isolation, Paul meets Gabby, one of Leah’s neighbors, and the two take an immediate liking to one another.
- Ally, faced with the prospect of losing her job and trying to look after both kids on her own, becomes increasingly frazzled — a situation only worsened by a global shortage of her estrogen gel.
- Ava is getting increasingly fed up with all the focus being on Luke, especially since she has started her period and has nobody to turn to but her church group vicar, Susi.

Preview and predictions for “No Comfort”:
- With Luke having invited Paul home, he’s going to have to navigate having him around again even at his worst, while Paul himself is going to have to make a decision regarding how he wants to proceed in his relationship with Gabby. I think it’s a pretty done deal at this point that Paul will choose to spend time with Gabby when the kids need him, leading to him inadvertently letting them down.
- With Ally not being able to get her estrogen gel, her menopausal symptoms are going to worsen, which is only going to make things worse given the uncertainty around her career. With the first two episodes depicting Ally essentially turning into Paul in terms of temperament, will that continue to be a running theme?
- As Ava feels more and more disconnected and abandoned, will that lead to a breakdown in her relationship with Luke and her parents? Almost certainly. But the more interesting question raised by her stealing from the pharmacy is will she turn to rebellion in order to make her presence felt?
