Based on fragments of the episode, this article addresses the issue of devastation in the mother-daughter relationship. Turning to the psychoanalytic concept of femininity, from the Freudian texts, and of the feminine in Lacan's teaching, the consequences of a jouissance that is not inscribed in language at all and that, faced with the impossibility of love, finds itself in devastation, a way to be realized.
