Dr. Paradise handles Margaret Johnson like a BOSS

In fan chatter on Reddit, those who watched the episode on Discovery+ agree Dr. Paradise handled Margaret and her mother Millie like a boss. He instantly zoned in on the fact that Millie referred to her 35-year-old daughter as a baby. Millie pushed back arguing that Margaret would always be her baby. She doubled down noting she was her youngest child and all her children were her babies. Dr. Paradise was quick to point out that her daughter was 35 and the word “baby” suggested a lot of care was needed.
