Gasmii, I think TLC can read my mind! This week’s back to back episodes of Sister Wives addressed two of my complaints. One: we got to hear more about the family’s faith. It wasn’t an in-depth look at their doctrine, but I’ll take it. Second, we got to spend some time with the Brown Family TEENS!! P.S. suggesting that Hunter got drunk in the previews and then it turns out it is just a prank? Not cool, TLC. Don’t set up serious drama and then fail to deliver. Do it again, and you get an angry Meri face:
This recap will focus on the first of the two episodes; I’ll have a recap for the second episode tomorrow. So let’s get started! The Brown family is all kinds of giddy at the imminent arrival of Kody’s brothers! That’s right, Scott, Michael, and Curtis Brown are coming to Vegas for some QT with Kody. The whole family may be super excited to see their uncles, but Kody is positively glowing. Meri is a great wife and she is pleased that Kody is pleased:
Curtis and Scott are arriving during the day and youngest brother Michael will be arriving in the evening. Instead of hanging around the house(s), the three brothers Brown are going on a motorcycle ride! Actually, Kody calls it a “motorcycle drive” but Meri corrects him:
Kody already has the motorcycle attire. This means Kody has a convertible, an Apple computer, an expensive automatic weapon, and motorcycle leather, all of which are very expensive. Remind me again about the super nice things that the ladies have for their hobbies. No, seriously TLC, REMIND ME. I don’t want to send unjustified spite into the universe. Show me an expensive sewing machine, or bicycle, or state of the art flat iron, and I will cease to complain that Kody is the 18th and most spoiled of the Brown children. Who has two thumbs and is hung up on fairness? THIS BALDY!
Kody lays down the backstory on his family. He is super close to his brothers, and they are all super close to each other…mostly. He says he has nine brothers and sisters and that his family has five girls and five boys. Three brothers are visiting, plus Kody makes four…what the fifth brother is up to? I wonder if we’ll ever get to meet The Brown Who Must Not Be Named.
More family trivia: Scott is the oldest of the four, Curtis and Michael are younger than Kody. Both Scott and Curtis are both living in Wyoming, Michael is in Utah. Scott and Michael share Kody’s faith, while Curtis defected to a more mainstream Christian church.
So let’s meet the brothers! Curtis arrives first with his wife, Erica. Kody was Curtis’s hero growing up. No word on whether he’s still his hero. Curtis looks like a cross between Kody and Tim McGraw and he has the same ultra-positive demeanor as Kody:
Scott is the eldest son, the family leader, and a polygamist. He has two wives, 16 kids,zero nonsense. According to Kody, it was Scott’s opinion that made the most impact on Kody’s personal decision to go public. I’m sure his opinion carried weight with the wives as well since Scott seems to be an actual grown-up. Scott is clearly the most serious of the Brown boys, or at least that we know of since one is missing.
Kody surprises Curtis and Scott with motorcycle rides. Curtis is into bikes and is a biker type guy according to Kody. You know who is definitely not a biker type guy? Scott:
