The Netflix drama did, however, take its sweet time to solve that riddle, for which we are glad. Seasons 3 and 4 were separated by a year, and as if that weren’t awful enough, the big surprise doesn’t occur until the very last hour. Of course, there is a silver lining: Jack turns out to be the father! Seriously, Mel didn’t need a daily reminder of her traumatic past with Mark considering how difficult their lives had become.
Mel wants a kid with Jack, according to Alexandra Breckenridge. She values having a piece of Mark in many ways, but she also wants to move on and start a family with Jack. She fervently opposes having Mark’s child. She must put that chapter of her life in the past since she is moving ahead. Breckenridge joins in on the fandom’s general jubilation. I was going for that plot, she admits. I really believed it shouldn’t be Mark’s child.
But when Breckenridge saw the screenplay for the conclusion, he was happy to see that it wasn’t the only paternity twist. She adds, “I also thought Charmaine having Jack’s kids were totally nuts.” Because it wasn’t truly the plan for a minute, I was able to fulfill my wishes towards the end of the season. They probably intended to send them in the opposite way. “You’re all mad,” I said. That’s right, folks, Charmaine accidentally reveals that Jack is not the father of her twins, which leads to the season’s shocking conclusion. I don’t know whether I contributed to it happening, but Breckenridge says he was the one who made a big deal out of it.
At first, glance, having Jack as the father of Mel’s child rather than Charmaine’s twins could seem like a win-win situation, but Breckenridge points out that Jack is likely to feel conflicted about the latter. She claims that being betrayed on such a large scale must cause rage and hurt. He made a financial, emotional, and mental commitment to having these children. He had a strong commitment. I believe Jack will find it difficult to let that go.
