The story begins when the Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse (Patrick J. Adams) left New York for Paris in the hopes of leaving their unhappy past behind. An unexpected turn of events occurred in the lives of the Woodhouses.
Suddenly, they were offered to live in a luxurious apartment in a high end neighborhood. The Castevets (played by Jason Isaacs and Carole Bouquet) also live there, and would later on become very involved in their lives.
Guy’s career is doing great and Rosemary is having a baby. That’s when strange things started happening to the Woodhouses, especially Rosemary. Guy’s co-worker Julie (Christina Cole) couldn’t agree more and she is worried about Rosemary’s health. A “holistic medicine” was offered to her by Roman’s wife Margaux, reassuring Rosemary that it’s healthy and will help her with the pregnancy.
As the baby grows inside Rosemary’s tummy, she is feeling the opposite. She’s losing weight and she looks terrible. She experienced nosebleeds, hallucinations, terrible morning sickness. There was even one scene where she tries to untangle Julie’s necklace and as she realised that she’s wearing a cross, it caused her to have difficulty in breathing.
Desperate, she asked for a second opinion from another doctor, Dr. Bernard, who is a friend of Julie . He performed a sonogram on her and he said that the baby’s heartbeat is strong, but the concern is that she has unusual hormone levels due to anemia and suggested that she checks into the hospital so they can monitor her with a more advanced equipment.
According to btvguide, in “Rosemary’s Baby” Season 1 Episode 2 “Night 2,” which aired on May 15, 2014, Guy was furious about the idea then later on confronted Julie. As they were talking, he noticed Julie’s necklace and he intentionally kissed Julie, then clutched her necklace. Julie being stunned about what happened, pushed him away and told him to get out. Guy left the room, holding Julie’s necklace and the next morning, Julie died of a strange accident that happened in the kitchen of her cooking class.
