'Sister Wives' Recap: Kody Brown Is More Secretive Than You Think

Sister WivesIt was a double-header of new episodes of Sister Wives on TLC tonight! Usually twice the Browns means twice the well-meaning shenanigans and tonight was no exception. If anything, tonight's installments were almost TOO sweet. My favorite moments overall? Why that would include Christine Brown revealing the truth of Kody's feelings about the move to Las Vegas AND seeing all of Robyn's hard work paying off in a loan for the family business! CELEBRATE.

First up, the business-y type stuff. At the end of the last week's episode, I don't know about you, but I was 90% sure that the family was in NO WAY going to get the loan they needed to help Robyn Brown's brainchild soar. I did a veritable Scooby-Doo double take when the investors came back and offered them dollars -- albeit, a little bit less than they had originally planned on receiving. I maybe did a fist-pump. The business lives on!  

In keeping with this upbeat theme, we get my second favorite moment. It's rare we get a glimpse of Kody Brown being anything other than totally confident. That changed this episode. The wives and the various and sundry kids decided to throw a party celebrating Kody and their move to Las Vegas. It was a sweet deck-of-cards theme party, which was nice in and of itself.

But the real magic came when the wives took turns talking about their highs and lows moving to Vegas. It was really surprising when Christine spoke about finally realizing that Kody hadn't been as excited about the move as he had pretended to be. He had only pretended that way to feel that way to convince his family it was the right move. It was so touching to see that the usually unflappable Kody had his doubts.

What was your favorite part of the episode?

I think it's time that Mary left the family and found him an offer on it is not fair that Robin can have another child but Cody refuses to have another child with Mary she has an empty house she's pretty enough and smart enough to be out on her own with a man who loves just her

I agree with you i think is very sad that Cody refuses to have another child with Mary but easily would have one with Robin Mary is all alone in that big house and the only thing she has to do is take care of the other wives children when she really wants one of her own she is smart enough to be on her own and with a man who will love just her

Sorry, never going to convince me to watch this show or the normalcy of this family. I am sure they are nice people, but I want to take a show just thinking of polygamy

I was shocked too about Robyn wanting a kid. Cody got Meri thinking about trying for another one then when she wanted to he told her that he didn't want to do it anymore. Seems to me like Robyn is the "Favorite" wife...

Oh, Robyn is totally the favorite wife. I'm sorry, maybe it's just the editing, but these women never really look like their in a happy marriage. I personally like the show but you have to think there's some underlying issues..

Meri hemmed and hawed about having another child for ages. It's certainly not Robin's fault Meri has fertility issues, why should she suffer for it?

As far as Robin being the 'favorite', the other ladies have been married to Kody for much, much longer. Relationships change with time. Robin and Kody are just still in the honeymoon phase. Check back in ten or twenty years and their relationship will look different, too.

I live in a country part of the year which has millions of polygamists. My husband's father had almost 30 children from 5 wives. There are pros and cons, but to me, the cons far outweigh the pros. In the case of the Brown family, they follow a religious doctrine which relates their polygamist lifestyle with their salvation and station in heaven, as I understand it. I personally believe that doctrine conflicts with the words of Jesus, regardless that Jewish society was polygamous. All that said, they are a nice family trying to raise their children well, and suffering as we all do, from the human foibles that taint our lives.
