Netflix’s new Chambers series features a bizarre scene with Nancy (Uma Thurman) and a hyper-realistic doll that may leave viewers confused.

Warning: SPOILERS ahead for Bedrooms episode 5

Netflix’s new supernatural horror series Bedrooms is full of strange occurrences, but perhaps few are stranger than the sudden appearance of a baby in Nancy LeFevre’s (Uma Thurman) bathroom – and if you missed any previous dialogue explaining it, you were probably very confuses. The scene takes place in Episode 5, “Murder on My Mind”, shortly before Nancy sits down for an uncomfortable dinner with Ben (Tony Goldwyn), Sasha (Sivan Alyra Rose) and The Annex executives. Ruth (Lili Taylor) and Evan (Matthew Rauch).

In Bedrooms, Nancy is the mother of Becky LeFevre (Lilliya Scarlett Reid), a high school student who was electrocuted in the bathtub the same night teenage Navajo Sasha suffered a sudden heart attack. After Sasha receives a heart transplant from Becky, the LeFevres try to find out which girl has their daughter’s heart – setting up a scholarship so she can go to Becky’s old school and giving her even Becky’s old car. As Sasha grows closer to the family, she begins to have disturbing visions, and Nancy also begins to experience something strange.

The next time we see Nancy, she’s in the bathroom looking at her reborn doll, which is in a suitcase and wrapped in a baby blanket (probably because Ruth brought it with her). Reborn dolls are designed to be hyper-realistic and are sometimes used by grieving parents to help them deal with their emotional trauma. However, the doll is introduced a little abruptly into Bedroomsand if you weren’t paying full attention to the earlier dialogue exchange, you could be forgiven for wondering where Nancy had a baby from and why she throws it so ruthlessly in the trash.

It may not have helped her get over Becky’s death, but the reborn doll at least seems to be moving Nancy’s phantom pregnancy forward. After throwing the doll away, she is horrified by the sudden appearance of a C-section scar on her stomach and frantically tries to rub it until her skin is bloody. It could be an extreme psychosomatic symptom of her phantom pregnancy, a hallucination, or the workings of the sinister spirit lurking inside Sasha, who is sitting nearby when the C-section scar manifests.
