Back to Utah, YAY!! The kids go hiking and at Logan’s suggestion, they will have a picnic at the lake! As they walk through the wilderness of Utah, Madison explains that Kody has always told them that they can choose to be poly or not. Mariah still insists she will be in a plural marriage someday, but that being a plural wife will not hinder her dreams to become a doctor. No matter what you make think of the Browns, they have done a great job with their kids and continue to be supportive; Mariah and Madison’s statements here reflect that.
To the picnic! Apparently it was freezing outside and no one but Logan wanted to have a picnic. Hunter whines over and over that it is a bad idea and Madison and MAriah chime in here and there. Logan is clearly over it and he DROPS AN F-BOMB! HE tells them to have a glass of man the fuck up. HAHAHA I LOVE IT. His words get him the shock factor he was likely going for.
“I wouldn’t have to drop f-bombs if y’all would stop being a bunch of bitches. BOOM! How do you like me NOW, son?”
Janelle says that Logan has been experimenting with foul language lately, but she’s not worried. She’s not harping on him for it because she knows it is not part of his character and it will pass. She also knows he’s pretty burnt out on Hunter’s negative attitude. MOTHER OF THE YEAR! Logan is acting out, which is normal for teens, and the way he is going about isn’t really harming anyone, and they are SO DAMN LUCKY to have a son as awesome as Logan. If saying “fuck” is the worst thing he ever does, that’s amazing. Fucking amazing.
Hunter is incredibly self-righteous about the incident and lectures Logan, telling him that if Kody were there, he’d say the same things. Logan’s response? “Dad would say a lot of things.” Logan? I love you. If you ever visit my neck of the woods, I will take you out for a milkshake and pick your brain about everything Janelle did right as a mom in the hopes my future children are as well adjusted as you.
Christine is not as relaxed about fuck-gate. She knows that the kids hear foul language from their peers at school and it doesn’t really bother her. She also understand Logan getting after his brothers, but she thinks that he should inspire them, not drop f-bombs on them. Two things:
one, I love that Christine said “f-bombs” and two, that’s a fuckload of pressure to put on Logan. This kid has been put in the position of being Dad junior and he handles it brilliantly and if he’s ever complained about it, they haven’t included it in the show. Kody taught Logan that his premiere responsibility is to be a gentleman, and Logan has clearly taken this to heart. Let the kid say fuck once in a while. JEEZ.
Logan explains that Mariah holds herself to a higher standard of language than the rest of them do. Apparently Hunter doesn’t swear often and instead he says that cursing shows a lack of intelligence. Well, that explains Logan’s swearing to me. He’s doing it to push his sibling’s buttons.
The show goes out on a sad note. The teens are visiting their house in UTah for the first time since they moved. Guess what! The house is HAUNTED!
Haunted by children and red balloons woooooooooo!
All four of the teens are clearly struggling as they examine the house. According to Logan, they held onto the idea that they would go back to their home in Utah within a few months of arriving to Vegas for a long time. They’ve had to accept that’s not true. Meri says that the big house was so much easier because they had immediate access to each other.
Mariah, who has a bit of people pleaser in her, maintains that she doesn’t regret the fact that they have moved to Vegas or anything that has happened since then. She’s just sad. As she talks, Madison wipes away tears. Speaking of Madison, she is turning into quite a beautiful young lady:
and she looks JUST LIKE Janelle
