‘Sister Wives’ Season 15 Episode 2 Recap – February 21

At the season 15 premiere of Sister Wives, women struggled to find their place in the family. Now that they’re further divided into Flagstaff, this takes a real toll in every way. Janelle called for lunch where she asked the women and Kody why they chose plural marriage or “The Principle”. Kody turned it into a negative rather than a working conversation. Nobody was happy with the direction. Fortunately, they all came together in the end to meet Maddie’s little girl Evie for the first time. But Meri couldn’t be there, which widened the gap.

Sister wives are back against Utah

There may be some disagreements in the family, but it doesn’t stop them from planning a trip. The women and Kody visit another plural family in Utah, the Darger’s. They have been extremely vocal and proactive when it comes to decriminalizing polygamy. They all meet at Meri’s to discuss the logistics of the trip and Janelle arrives soon. She still thinks about lunch and the emptiness she feels. As she thinks about life in Utah, she is reminded of it as they read about their life as a family in the plural.

The Browns were immediately examined by the police. That started the quick move to Vegas in the middle of the night. The family sued Utah and won, and polygamy was decriminalized for a year. But then the state doubled in size and made the crime worse than before. Now a new bill has been introduced for families like the Browns. They can be plural as long as they are law abiding citizens. There are rules like no child brides and things like that to remove scars.

Christine works in Phoenix and speaks to her on the phone. This will be a short road trip to Utah, but they’ll find out who’s going to ride who. Kody needs a quick turnaround for work, and Christine thinks the trip is pointless. Why does Kody have to see the Darger family in person? Kody says he needs to speak to the Patriarch in person as this is more personal. He also longs for time with another family in the plural. While the family speaks, Kody asks what would have happened if they had moved to Saint George, Utah. The only one who would have wanted to live there is Christine.

A divided family and a flat tire

For the Utah trip, Kody feels that if the women don’t want to travel together, it is a sign that they are not connected. Meri sees the effort is lacking as they have all moved to Flagstaff. Last week Janelle said the shift started in Vegas. It is now the morning of the trip and Christine sees that Kody is overcrowded. Just because of the luggage. Christine says they need two cars. This annoys Kody because he thinks she’s just trying to drive separately. They collect the women and Kody thinks there is a flat tire and wants to go to the dealer immediately.

Christine suggests they take other cars, but no, Kody firmly believes they will get a new tire. It’s just a lot of arguments that waste time. When they arrive to get Meri, all she hears is Kody screaming. She suggests that he take her car, but he refuses. Robyn lets her know it has nothing to do with her, but it still stings. She says she wish she had flown. On the way to maturing, women agree on one thing: they should grab their family therapist Nancy. This breaks the tension for the moment.

In the tire business, Robyn says that Kody needs to get over his minivan problem because her car is really comfortable. You will quickly find out that the tire cannot be repaired. Hence, they have to take Robyn’s car, although they can simply call Joe over the phone. Janelle worries about going to Utah together because she still worries that polygamy is a crime. Robyn hates going where her family is illegal. In the car, Meri complains that it’s too hot and Christine too cold and that they haven’t even left Flagstaff.

Sister wives back in Utah!

They made it to Utah and the minivan held up well. It was not a bad trip and everyone hit it off and are now very excited about the Dargers. Two of Joe’s wives are sisters and that is quite common in their ward. Kody starts talking to Joe about children and comments that he is not sure he has no more children. Robyn is surprised because she knows that Meri, Janelle, and Christine are reproductive. So it just leaves them. It’s crazy for her when Kody acts like he’s the one giving birth to these children. And she doesn’t want to talk about that anymore.

Kody thinks about how he always thought of being a father and what kind he was hoping for. It’s been a huge part of his identity for so many years. The idea of ​​one more staying with the Dargers despite being grandparents is now the greatest reward. Meri notes that it really is necessary to have friends like her, but it gets difficult in Flagstaff.

You tour the house and the Dargers are under one roof. Although Joe realizes that he wants his own room and Kody puts his hat on it.

Maybe under one roof?

One of the Darger women asks about the living space they are looking at. Kody says he designed a single house for the family. Maybe it worked for the Browns in the past, but it’s not that doable right now. Christine has been very vocal about the idea that this one house will never work. They thought this was how they were brought up. But Christine has seen both sides of the spectrum and it cannot be forced.

The Dargers say they are under the same roof and are forced to deal with all of their problems. This is now the biggest problem Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn have faced since Vegas. Robyn opens up and says she feels like a stepmother at this point. Janelle knows that her children can go to Meri and Christine and walk freely through their fridge without thinking. Because they all grew up together. It’s not the same with Robyn because she walked in just before Vegas.

The Dargers remember what life was like right before the Browns left Utah. It was scary, but Joe notes that they are still together. Joe feels happy because he is thriving with his plural community. However, he is a felon who leads the life he does, just like Kody. Christine talks about how her grandfather was persecuted for telling the truth, but she believes now is the right time. They thank their friends for lunch and leave.

The next time the ladies are ready to talk about the land of Coyote Pass, the strain on Kody and Meri’s relationship is evident. Don’t miss Sister Wives Sunday nights on TLC and Discovery +.
