The whole family brings the car back to Christine’s and Robyn goes inside to get Kody. Once again, she does a great job acting when she tells Kody that she wrecked the car. Kody takes it in stride and goes out to survey the damage. JUST KIDDING! He’s greeted with the surprise of the family yelling and presenting his car to him. Hunter wins the respect of Baldy: he wrote “Hunter is my favorite child” on the car. Also, pink paint on the mirror? That’s not safe.
NOTE: You are not being pursued by a tsunami of Pepto Bismol. Just drive normally.
Kody jokes that he has to get Robyn back…THERE IT IS! I knew this would somehow pay off for her. So begins the flirty prank war. BARF.
Meri teases Kody that he was as romantic as a rock when handing out the bouquets of flowers to his wives. The flowers are beautiful and all the ladies love them except they didn’t know what to do with them at dinner. Also, look who is smiling and happy:
HUNTER IS HAPPY YAY!!!
Kody explains that they have transformed the monogamist institution of Valentine’s Day into a family holiday. Since the fam is together, Kody announces to the family that they will be meeting with Tanya tomorrow to find out if they qualify for the home loan. I’m sure the little ones are really interested in the real estate process.
They do everything as a family, I will give them that. I was never privy to what was going on with money, our home, etc., when I was a kid. TRUE STORY: When I was four, we got in the car in Bend, OR and arrived in San Francisco, CA for what I thought was a road trip but turned out to be my family moving from Oregon to California. Talk about a surprise!
The Browns to meet with Tanya, who will have to be an actual wizard to get this family into four homes. They are all super anxious as she explains that the stressful part of this process is the fact that it is all or nothing because they want to live next to each other.
First the good news – they qualified for financing! They’re all floored. Tanya explains that they have do it in a non-traditional way, aka private financing with a 40% down payment. YIKES! That’s double the cost of what they were expecting to spend. Robyn tears up at the news. Get a tissue Robyn, there’s more! One of the houses in the cul-de-sac has been purchased. BOOO.
Kody bounces back quickly – he announces that they should focus on finding more affordable homes and buy two to start to get Christine and Janelle moved in. Robyn tries to stay cool about everything but she’s really disappointed. She’s not the only one:
“Dear Diary, today is the worst day EVER. From now on, dream killer is spelled T-A-N-Y-A.”
Back to the home for a family meeting (letdown). Kody explains that they can get the money but they won’t be able to move because one of the houses has been sold. Everyone is really disappointed. Hunter doesn’t see why they need houses right next door to each other, but he’s passed over. The parents all say they need to push forward and keep looking. The teens are not optimistic; they know that their parents always present the best case scenario and they don’t always deliver.
And that brings us to the end of the Sister Wives Double Header Recap! What did you think? Is this show is starting to straddle the line between boring and depressing, or is it just me? I am starting to realize that the teens add a lot of color to the show, and watching the parents is just boring and frustrating. That being said, you know I will watch every episode of this show until it goes off the air because it’s like crack for my brain.
