The first surprise for me! WTF Morbidda is Dawn's aunt. It still bugs me that Dawn is a completely retooled character. Sharon is less scatterbrained, more hippie dippy. This was supposed to be Mary Anne's big episode, but I thought all the interesting parts came from Dawn. I didn't feel like making Bailey trans was a necessary addition to Mary Anne's rescue story.
I feel like the Bailey scene in the hospital would have made more sense if they'd mentioned how her notes include her transitioning desires, but the doctors didn't read it or whatever; but since they made no mention of that, it appeared like Mary Anne (and therefore the show by proxy) was presenting the doctors poorly because...they came into the room of a very young child who's medical history says they're a boy, and didn't call them 'she', despite the fact they're wearing feminine coded clothes? Um, yeah, your first thought isn't going to be 'That boy's outfit has a sparkly butterfly motif, I better assume they're transitioning.' And the hospital gown was ridiculously contrived, hospitals tend to stick to white precisely so they don't get into endless arguments with grown adults, never mind children, over what colour it is.
