The Youngest Nun
7 August 2018 | by JordanThomasHallSee all my reviews

Sister Bertrille runs into Carlos at the airport who is meeting his adopted neice Linda Shapiro (Pamelyn Ferdin). Carlos is suddenly called away on a business trip and Sister Bertrille volunteers to look after Linda during her visit. The little girl enjoys her time being out and about with the sister. When a bird falls out of its nest, Sister Bertrille reveals her flying to Linda. When Carlos returns to the convent to pick up Linda everyone is surprised that Linda wants to be a young converted nun. She views Sister Bertrille as her role model. Reverend Mother Placido unsuccessfully explains to Linda the seriousness of such a decision and the life experiences necessary to make it. Linda's parents arrive to calmly try to get her to go home. Sister Bertrille also tries to explain to her, but Linda becomes emotionally hurt and packs to leave. The two have a heart-to-heart with the sister explaining that there are different ways to make a difference in the world. She further states that she didn't always want to be a nun and shows home movies of her in her youth (interestingly, footage from Sally Field's previous sitcom "Gidget"). An uplifting revelation is made.

A sharper episode than most of the first season to this point. There's heart to go along with a nice message and some light comedy. A feel-good offering.
