Sister Wives star Kody Brown and his wives bust down a few walls surrounding their plural marriage during the latest TLC episode. Now, it appears they’re ready to expose another side of polygamy. Kody and the wives dropped some viewers’ jaws along the way.
Sister Wives: Kody Brown Takes Polygamy Down a Few Notches?
Kody Brown, Meri Brown, Janelle Brown, Christine Brown, and Robyn Brown live-tweeted during the latest Sister Wives. They offered real-time insight into scenes filmed months ago. But, they shared what looks like a sudden shift in their thoughts on plural marriage. For starters, the Sister Wives spouses don’t talk about their multiple marriage as a rock-solid lifestyle for the rest of their days anymore.
Now, they’re focused on handling a shift in family dynamics, like a divorce. Kody Brown even invited his controversial friend Kyle Henderson to Coyote Pass in the last episode. (Note – Kyle was accused of beating one of his wives). Now, Kyle’s no longer in the polygamy lifestyle as his first wife left (the one he allegedly abused).
Now, Kody Brown told his pal he’s jaded about polygamy – especially since his wives voted down the one home notion. It doesn’t look as if the Sister Wives patriarch is holding polygamy as high as he once did. In the past few episodes, the wives discussed what happens if one party to the marriage leaves. Are they getting the fans ready for something?
Major Shift Noted By Fans
In the past, no matter what problems Kody Brown and his Sister Wives faced, they worked through them. They explained their plural marriage is part of their faith. So, it was always worth keeping intact. But now, perhaps something changed. There seem to be some clues in the last few episodes. But that might be all TLC shady editing.
However, fans noticed a shift for Kody Brown and the wives today. Back when each of the Sister Wives went into the marriage, not just for Kody Brown but for the polygamous family. Robyn explained how it wasn’t just Kody who enticed her into the Brown family. She says she fell for the family first. Today, fans describe seeing a shift where the women are more focused on Kody Brown than the plural family.
Sister Wives: Did You Catch That?
In the last episode, Robyn and Kody delivered bad news at a family meeting. They found out Robyn’s rental home is on the market. So, she needed to find a new home in Flagstaff. And, her house was their usual get-together spot. Then, the camera honed in on Meri. She has a huge home in Flagstaff and offered it for family gatherings. The offer went over like a lead balloon.
Meri wouldn’t comment when the Sister Wives producer asked her about this. So, why did they act as if Meri was an outsider? Is something already in the works as far as the family dynamics when it comes to Meri? While Sister Wives enthusiasts believe Robyn is Kody Brown’s favorite wife, the dynamics appeared to shift.
Usually, Kody and Robyn don’t appear as a “couple” but act like members of a polygamous marriage. This time, they walked into the family meeting like a couple dropping in on friends. They came to share the bad news about the rental house. But, it looked as if the other Sister Wives expected what looked like sudden closeness between Robyn and husband Kody Brown.
Family Placements Lined Up as TLC Series Winds Down?
Sister Wives nears the end of Season 14, and that means a waiting game to see if there’s another season. With a few episodes left, Kody Brown reports cynical jealousy when he sees his wives having fun together playing in the snow. Yet, this once brought him happiness. Now, Meri seems apart from the family. And then Robyn and Kody acted like a duo – not part of something larger. So, are things changing?
Janelle made it very clear that being part of the Sister Wives family is something she loves. But she doesn’t seem to put any pressure on Kody as a romantic partner. On the other hand, Christine Brown looked angry this season, especially when it came to Kody’s one house scheme. Is there more to this than meets the eye?
It sure looks like the family dynamics shifted, and the once healthy multi-wife marriage unraveled before fans’ eyes. Next week, Sister Wives previews promise the biggest fight ever between the family members. So, it looks like fans will get to see where this all goes. But is this real-life drama or manufactured for reality TV.
Stay tuned as new episodes air Sunday nights at 10 pm EST on TLC.
