Unconditional love.

Natasha fully embraces the role of being the baby’s mother and re-constructs her life to fulfil his needs.

However, this means that the baby has complete control over Natasha.

But the nurse warns Natasha that she’s going to give the baby ‘attachment issues’ and picks up the tot anyway.

Of course, it doesn’t end well for the nurse after that.

Although we don’t actually see what happens, we see a group of panicked doctors frantically rushing to the nurse’s aid.

Was Natasha able to kill the baby?

Towards the end of the final, Natasha is complete brain-washed by the sadistic infant, to the point where she attacks her own father for holding her child.

When Bobbi visits Natasha’s house, she finds her father lying wounded and almost unconscious in the bedroom.

But before she does anything else, Natasha suddenly realises what she’s done and drops the knife.

Suddenly, a limping Mrs. Eaves arrives at the scene and asks to hold the infant.

Then, without giving anybody a chance to react, she jumps from the cliff with the baby.

Natasha jumps in to save Mrs. Eaves from drowning, leaving the newborn to fall to the bottom of the ocean.
