I’m warning you, “going home”never works.
Happy New Year to you! How do you spend your New Year’s Eve? I always get Chinese food delivered (it’s a tradition in my family – my brother does it too), then watch Twilight Zone episodes until about 11:45, then over to Ryan at Times Square. Well, to a video of what happened in Times Square 3 hours before. So the ball drop is a tad anticlimactic here on the West Coast. You know, like the Mayan Apocalypse.
On to our show! This week we ended the season with a double-header. In the first ep, the wives made more choices on the homes (didn’t they do that twice already?) and predictably, Meri is a pain in the ass, as well as being massively over budget.
Meanwhile, as been mentioned in every freaking ep this season, Logan is going to college – across town. The rest of the family acts like they’re never going to see him again, so they make a video and also a quilt with all their photos on it. I’m sure Logan will be proudly displaying that quilt. Cause what college-age guy doesn’t want to get beaten up on his first day in the dorm?
In other developments, Kody is made to face the imminent demise of his hair. That calls for another quilt! Surfer hair memorialized forever . . . maybe they could incorporate some of the precious strands in it!
Everyone goes to see the houses, which are finally under construction. Then the adults (well, except Janelle, who’s conspicuously silent) decide to move forward with the mission statement. We end with Meri (and Robyn) weeping when Meri realizes it’s going to be Mariah’s last Christmas at home. Really, Meri? That was a news flash?
The second ep is a sit-down entitled “Secrets Revealed”, which is a pretty blatant case of false advertising. “Entire Season Rehashed” should have been the title. The Browns discuss the Dargers, how the families differ, whether Janelle thinks about leaving, the FLDS, Wet Bar Gate, finances, Meri’s “decision”, and an upcoming “recommitment ceremony”, which is an as yet unspecified event to celebrate what they think will be getting back to the way things were, once they move into the new homes. Never change, Browns. Never change.
Much more in the full recap, up in a day or so. See you then!
