Previously, on Call the Midwife: In case you need a refresher on where we left things at the end of last season, we have recaps of every episode right this way.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in our favorite East End of London neighborhood, but when we meet up with the nuns and midwives of Nonnatus House it would appear the normally festive season is turning out to be more stressful than joyful. 

'Call the Midwife' Series 4 : Episode 7 Recap

Previously on Call the Midwife: Last week’s recap is right this way.

Welcome back to this our next to last Call the Midwife recap and quite a heartbreaker it was. The power of love in its many forms is the main premise of this show; be it the love of parents for children, between romantic partners, or among untraditional families as well. All these varieties were on display in this week’s installment so let’s get right to it and let the lovefest begin.

'Call the Midwife' Series 4 : Episode 6 Recap

Previously on Call the Midwife: Last week's recap is right this way.

Before we get into this week’s storylines, can we just say, “Welcome Home, Sister Evangelina!” We’ve missed your plain-spoken opinions and your compassionate dedication to your patients. It’s apparent scuffles will persist as the Sister reclaims her previous role from Nurse Crane, but in time, I believe they’ll return to that unspoken truce they’d achieved when Evangelina left for her hysterectomy. Now we just need Chummy and all will be right with the world (or at least, Poplar).

Speaking of Chummy, her scouts are holding a fundraiser! Patsy is organizing a square dance to raise money to get the cubs to the annual jamboree. But with events like this come serious wardrobe dilemmas – checked shirt or ironic poodle skirt?

And then there’s the issue of who to ask to the dance.

'Call the Midwife' Series 4 : Episode 5 Recap

Previously on Call the Midwife: Last week's recap is right this way.

This has been quite the series for infestations and contagious disease outbreaks. First, London experienced a rat invasion. Next came an epidemic of dysentery. Oh and don’t forget the syphilis-ridden brothel. Now our medical professionals must contend with a very nasty disease indeed, diphtheria.

More on the pestilence later because I know we all want to celebrate the long-awaited return of Nurse Cynthia Miller, now known as Sister Mary Cynthia (Bryony Hannah). She’s left the mother house in Chichester with some encouraging words from Sister Evangelina and a bit of anxiety about coming back to her former home in an entirely new capacity.
