Building a Flagstaff Fortress & Being a Jerk to Your Family – The Ashley's Reality Roundup
“Get ready Flagstaff…I’m comin’ to terrorize you and the individuals you’re keen on!”

Notice: The Ashley goes to recap the ultimate episodes of this season of ‘Sister Wives, to make up for not recapping the earlier episodes! Right here’s final week’s episode, and this week’s will probably be posted very quickly! 

With no Duggar candle-making to recap this week, The Ashley has decided to turn her recapping efforts to the poor, neglected present that is Sister Wives!

The Ashley could be very aware that she has not recapped any of the episodes which have aired thus far this season, but let’s go ahead and verify in with Kody Brown and his cornucopia of unhappy wives, we could?

Thus far this season, the Browns are getting ready to move from Satan’s Sin Field (aka Las Vegas) to Flagstaff, Arizona. Nobody is pleased concerning the transfer, but, as per normal, Kody tells all of them to go kick rocks. Kody needs to build one huge house to deal with all of his unhappy wives in, but stated unhappy wives are, in fact, unhappy about that concept.

“It’s by no,” Christine declared in a previous episode.

In fact what Kody heard her say was: “In case you build it, we’ll come.”

“I made CHARTS about this transfer, Christine! CHARTS! How can it fail?”

“My wives wrestle with the thought of shifting into one residence,” he tells us. “But I feel like they only haven’t seen the fitting house!” 

Anyone wanna take bets as to which spouse would be the first to strangle Kody together with his personal straggly locks? Usually, I might say Meri however I feel my money’s going to be on Christine. She’s fairly scrappy.

In order that brings us in control! Let’s start…

This episode kicks off at Christine’s Vegas abode, the place Kody is busy shellacking his mane with Scrunch-n-Go hair gel. He calls for that Christine whip him up some breakfast, and she or he obliges. Kody needs his Seahaggish hair to look additional special in the present day as a result of his brothers are coming into city! 

Damn proper it’s not; at this point it’s some kind of Brillo pad/ seaweed mix…

Kody is taking his brothers to Arizona, in order that he can show them a property he might need to pressure his unhappy household to stay in. Kody (sporting a stretchy headband…natch) is telling Christine that he hopes extra “individuals they know” (i.e. his household) fall in love with Flagstaff. He needs to build a group of Kody followers on the market, apparently.

“Everyone we all know needs to return visit Flagstaff and see the dream that we’ve seen!” Kody declares, as Christine seems around the room (almost definitely trying to find one thing to hit him with).

“You really assume anybody who isn’t legally sure to you’d need to transfer anyplace near you?! Boy, PLEASE!”

Christine tells Kody’s brothers that they all have rental homes in Flagstaff right now, apart from her because she is shopping for a spot.

Kody then tells us that he is sneaking away from the Cul-de-Sac of Broken Goals to satisfy up with a house designer. Not one of the wives no about this “secret,” though.

Kody’s brother Michael is talking about wanting a second wife. He’s seen how Kody bosses the Brown ladies around and has decided he needs some of that action for himself.

He tells us that he and his wife haven’t felt “a pull toward a specific individual” yet. (Truthfully, I’m positive any of Kody’s four wives would leap on the probability to go away Kody and his mangy mop behind and marry this dude.) 

“Like I stated, Kody, Meri looks like a very good woman, and, while the thought of having limitless leggings does sound tempting, give up making an attempt to marry her off to me!”

Michael starts talking about wives like they’re pet goldfish.

“Once you get one, it’s easier to get two, and then simpler to get three!” he says. 

Oh, he seems pretty…we will undoubtedly inform he’s related to Kody! 

We then get some perception into Kody and Christine’s twisted relationship, as Kody brags that he bagged Christine by speaking about his first spouse Meri. (He, in fact, makes no point out of his second wife, Janelle, whom he was married to throughout that time.) 

He then appears to catch himself and provides ol’ Janelle a pity mention.

“It worked with Robyn, too,” Kody stated. “All I did was speak about Meri, Janelle and Christine to her.”

A producer points out just how creepy this is however, surprisingly, Christine isn’t offended. Actually, she’s turned on.

That’s um…scorching?

We then flash to all the wives sitting on the sofa, discussing this very matter. (Meri has her trusty perma-scowl all over her face, wanting like she’s making an attempt to not throw up her lunch on the point out of Kody’s identify.) 

The other Sister Wives all giggle about how scorching they assume it’s once they hear Kody saying good things about his other wives. 

Yeah…I don’t get it both.

We flash again to the kitchen, where Kody is performing some type of overly dramatic mime-ing to his brother, whisper-shrieking that he has an appointment in Flagstaff they usually’ve received to get out of there— now! (Literally the photograph under doesn’t even absolutely capture how ridiculous Kody’s miming/arm flapping truly was…)

This will develop into my new pc screensaver…not gonna lie…

Kody’s brother seems understandably terrified (but retains on eatin’ his pancakes). Kody is actually operating across the kitchen— manbun boppin’ within the breeze— and randomly taking a look at his watch, opening his mouth awkwardly and pointing at things…all whereas his brother is just chompin’ down on his Mrs. Butterworth’s.

Christine, who’s used to this nonsense from Kody, is simply puttering across the kitchen, completely ignoring that her husband is doing air visitors controller strikes close by.

Kody is literally the worst (just usually, but in addition at protecting secrets and techniques). He begins speaking about how Flagstaff is simply 4 hours away (wink, wink). 

Once you’ve obtained a secret however no one cares and your head is about to explode…

Kody & Ko. then hit the street. Kody tells us all about his plan to trick his wives into dwelling in one big home, even though all four sad wives have expressed numerous occasions that they are going to be much more sad if Kody forces them to shack up in one massive Polygy Palace.

“The most important benefit to everyone dwelling together is the access we’ve got to everyone,” Kody tells us. Principally he’s saying that will probably be easier for him if he simply has to go across the hall to play pickle-tickle with Christine and Robyn each different night time, somewhat than across city. (I mean…we all know Janelle and Meri aren’t gettin’ any…)

Kody tells us that that is the last time he plans to uproot his complete family based mostly on one among his random whims, and spend lots of of hundreds of dollars to construct them their dream houses.

Positive, Jan…

“So I simply need to do it proper,” he says.

“And, clearly, by ‘proper’ I mean ‘my means!’”

They arrive in Prescott Valley, Arizona, and one of the brothers has no clue why the hell Kody has simply kidnapped him and brought him hours away from their unique vacation spot. They pull up at a home and Kody still refuses to tell the brother why they’re there.

They meet with Draftsman Daybreak, who unveils Kody’s grand plan to build his Polygy Palace out in the midst of Arizona. 

“I’m just about to open a present,” Kody tells us. “Because I don’t know what I’m gonna get.”

Um…yeah you do, Kody. You are the one who arranged the meeting, set forth plans to construct a jumbo house and referred to as up all these knuckleheads to movie it. 

Draftsman Daybreak rolls out the blueprints for the enormous house, as Kody stands on the sidelines, randomly opening and shutting his mouth. He congratulates himself on a job properly completed…regardless that he literally didn’t do anything.

“My first response is…we nailed it!” he tells us.

Meanwhile, the producers try to get the wives to talk about how a lot they might hate dwelling in one massive house.

“If Kody didn’t should reside there, I’d contemplate it…”

Robyn, in fact, already knows about Kody’s plans to build an enormous home (as a result of she’s his favorite) but she’s enjoying dumb. Christine says she truly wouldn’t mind dwelling in a single huge house again so long as the bedrooms are far aside. (She doesn’t need to should take heed to Kody banging Robyn on the regular, apparently…)

Meri and Janelle appear to be they might slightly drive ice picks into their very own eyes relatively than be locked up, 4 wives deep, in Kody’s Flagstaff Fortress! 

Back on the draftsman’s meeting, Kody is busy making an attempt to sound sensible.

“I can tell by each spouse’s identify, you’ve acquired their own quarters,” he says, proving that he can no less than determine all of his wives’ names. 

Kody asks for his brothers’ approval, asking, “Am I nailing this or what?”

The bald brother doesn’t skip a beat in letting Kody know that he is primarily useless and Dawn is the one one undertaking something.

“No, she’s nailing it” the brother tells Kody. 

Kody tells us that the house has received to be lovely sufficient for his wives to need it. (Um…they married Kody. Clearly their requirements of magnificence are fairly damn low!) 

“Everyone will love what I’ve deliberate for them…. eeeeexcelllent….”

Kody tells us that he’s bought…on his own concept…however he’s apprehensive his wives will fail to spot how great his genius plan is. 

Back at the Cul-De-Sac, it’s now two weeks until the move date and all the youngsters are nonetheless immune to the transfer. Robyn and Christine are busy packing up their houses so they can scurry off and fulfill Kody’s goals. Janelle is refusing to pack, stating that she’s principally in denial that she is definitely going to be pressured to go away her residence with a purpose to give into one among Kody’s random whims. 

“Perhaps if I disguise behind Meri’s wet bar I can stay in Vegas?”

As for Meri, she’s not concerned with Kody’s shifting shenanigans. The truth is, she tells the Sister Wives that she won’t be shifting or packing up her leggings stock until after she helps her daughter, Mariah, move to Chicago.

Kody tells the Sister Wives that he shall be spending the weekend dashing from one wife’s home to the subsequent, “helping” (aka making one of the background youngsters do whatever work he’s requested to do). Meri legit refused to even look Kody’s approach whereas they sit on the confessional sofa and he says this. 


“My wives are thrilled with my concept to maneuver. Can’t you inform?”

A number of the youngsters are especially upset concerning the move. Kody and Christine talk about how upset the youngsters have been concerning the last transfer (to Las Vegas) and the way a lot emotional havoc it brought on the household.

They speak about how Paedon, then about 10, was informed he couldn’t take all of his toys with him to Vegas as a result of they “didn’t have time and had to take only what was essential.”

Um…why do these individuals all the time act like they escaped the Nazis at the hours of darkness once they moved to Vegas? They act like they have been pushed from their residence by order of the Fuhrer or something.

And…why the hell couldn’t they load up all the child’s toys? My guess is that Kody was just too low cost to spring for the extra-large U-Haul.

Kody says it’s painful to think about how the cross-state transfer was so arduous on his youngsters and legit devastated some of them…proper before he talks about how he’s about to do it once more when he makes the family transfer to Flagstaff.

Sorry, youngsters, however Kody will get what Kody needs. 

“Truthfully, I’m not even totally positive Kody will allow us to take all non-essential KIDS, not to mention non-essential toys!”

The subsequent day, Kody is in full-Fraggle type– complete with sweatband– and is shifting furnishings into vans. With each dresser he masses, he’s getting closer and nearer to his big Flagstaff Fortress and he can’t wait!

In fact, though, everybody else within the family is (as per standard) depressing.

Gabe says he doesn’t need to move to Flagstaff…until Kody buys him a motorbike. Kody makes some dumb joke about it and this causes Gabe to stomp out in protest. Kody gets mad and doesn’t understand why his son gained’t simply put on a cheerful face and transfer away from his highschool and buddies simply because his dad acquired a brand new concept. Go determine.

Meanwhile, Mariah (and her Groucho Marx brows) tells Meri that she and her girlfriend Audrey not require Meri’s “help” (aka constant scowling) with their move to Chicago. Audrey’s mom goes to assist as an alternative and Meri is devastated!

“OK, but what if I promise to not make Audrey’s mother take a look at the LulaRoe spring catalog? Can I assist then?”

Audrey insists that they’re booting Meri from the plan for her own good, since she nonetheless has an entire household, moist bar and leggings warehouse to pack up. Meri is upset, so this provokes another snot- and tear-filled cameo from her, speaking about how she needs someone truly needed her. 

Audrey and Mariah tell Meri that they’re doing this out of love, however Meri looks like she’s being punished. Audrey suggests that they will still take a street journey to Chicago with Meri, since it’s solely a 24-hour drive there from Vegas. As Audrey says that, Mariah appears like she’s been hit with a stun gun. 

She principally says that being jammed into a Honda Civic with Meri (and her complaining and tellings of the “Catfish Caper” story) will possible cause her to voluntarily drive off a cliff. 

“Take a hint, woman! They don’t want you anyplace near them! I’m used to it. No one needs to be around me!”

Kody is completely happy that Meri’s not allowed to go to Chicago. He wants all the workhorses he can get with this move! 

Janelle, in the meantime, is in packing hell. She tells us that she’s significantly contemplating getting rid of every thing she has.

Um…great concept! Begin with Kody!

Robyn tells Kody that she’s not shifting again once they settle in Flagstaff. Kody doesn’t make any guarantees, and that makes Robyn nervous that she and the rest of the Sister Wives (and whichever youngsters are still speaking to them at that point) can be gypsying throughout the US of A for the remainder of their sad lives!

“Is it too late to provide Meri again the whole ‘authorized wife’ standing?”

Christine reminds Kody that they nonetheless don’t have all the things with a purpose to purchase their house in Flagstaff, so there’s an opportunity that they might 1) lose a bunch of cash and a couple of) be dwelling in tents on the parcel of land Kody bought, because Doofus can’t discover time to go to the financial institution and get his finances in order. 

Kody talks to a bunch of the youngsters, and all of them inform him they don’t need to transfer to Flagstaff, they usually undoubtedly don’t need to go in the event that they’re going to be homeless.

“Hell, I’ll even spring for inflatable mattresses for some of my favorite youngsters and wives! What extra do you guys need?”

Kody calls the youngsters’ feelings of not wanting to move “BS drama” and Christine assures the youngsters that their emotions are actually valid. He’s mad that his soldiers aren’t falling into line and marching their solution to the Flagstaff Fortress like they have been informed to do. Kody is actually mad as a result of he is aware of that if Gabe stays mad concerning the transfer, he gained’t do as much guide shifting labor as Kody had planned for him to do.
