The Conners Season 5 Episode 17: The Contra Hearings and the Midnight Gambler Release Date, Streaming Guide, Preview & Spoilers


The Conners Season 5 Episode 17 is what makes fans really excited after everything that we were left with in The Conners Season 5 Episode 16 on the 1st of March 2023. The series throws light on the titular Conner family, who is the working middle-class bunch trying to get their hands on a modest income to support their everyday dreams.

Recently, we have been witnessing a lot of emotional drama between family members, and it is hard to keep up. In The Conners Season 5 Episode 16, titled Hiding In and Moving Out, we saw the most significant emotional blow. It turns out that Harris will not be able to become a mother at all. We noticed that she is suffering from a miscarriage which is getting tough on her mental health.

Harris thought that she and the baby were okay and she was just having some regular pregnancy cramps and, thus, decided not to visit the doctor. Later when things seemed to be getting out of control, and she went to seek help, it turned out that the baby had passed on.

Well, when Jackie came later to console her with the tragic news, Harries tried to stay calm and react formally. She said she was not exactly planning on getting pregnant before, and now that it is genuinely final that she will not have the baby, there are not any more regrets, and she is fine. Although, we clearly could see how she was feeling at the moment, and it must have been terrifying for her to lose a child.

The Conners Season 5 Episode 16 Recap – Hiding In and Moving Out

Things did not take much time to turn out when Darlene came into the picture and said that Harris must be relieved because the situation worked out right how she wanted it to. Although, this triggered her, and she became angry, saying that Darlene would obviously say that because she never wanted Harris to have a baby in the first place.

After the response, the whole family was also processing the loss of their unborn family member, and Darlene talked to her daughter, saying that she would never want to see her in such a place at all. She is obviously in a bad place right now because even though she did not plan on having a child, this unexpected blessing to her was great, and she grew attached to the baby.

The idea was very wholesome, and she was looking forward to a great future ahead for both of them. We saw Darlene and Harris have a great mother-daughter moment right after this when Harris claimed that she felt guilty for not taking care of the baby enough. But Darlene cut her off and said that this feeling is going to make her a great mom in the future when she was ready.
