Have Changed
Nathan &
Angela's Dynamic

THIS STORY CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR. "The Rehearsal" Season 1.

SPOILER WARNING!

Nathan Fielder's "The Rehearsal" takes the discomfort levels of the documentary-comedy genre to a whole new level, and some of the show's most awkward and entertaining moments are when he interacts with the religious wannabe mother Angela. Their vast differences make their clash inevitable, but fans feel that one particular compromise would have changed their dynamic.
One Reddit discussion about the show pointed out that the underlying issue is that Angela doesn't allow Fielder — who has been playing her partner in the parenthood rehearsal — to include Jewish elements in their "children's" upbringing, which prompts Fielder to get personal. "He was going beyond the scope of the original discussion to make personal attacks and not let go," they wrote.
However, another Redditor thought the issue wasn't about religion in particular as much as it was about Angela's unyielding nature in general. In a video addressing her departure from the show, Angela notes that one of the reasons she left was because she wasn’t in control and no consensus could be reached.
