The episode is called "Crossroads For The Roloffs":
The Roloff Family dynamic is changing. Jeremy and Molly return to school as Zach moves into a new house. Pumpkin season catastrophes push Matt and Amy to their limits - and after 25 years of marriage, they question whether there’s still a future together.

Weird thing I noticed while watching reruns. Amy is all “why is it leaking??” in the wine cellar, but she’s standing right next to the gaping hole in the bricks. Also when Matt is giving Jer the pep talk on doing good in school, Jeremy is rolling his eyes and unable to look directly at his father. And who wants to bet we never see Heidi again? Oh and despite the serious concerns everyone expressed in the Family Game Day episode, not once in the other episode did I see a Roloff, or anyone with a Roloff put a seat belt on while driving the mules. There’s even one lovely scene of Matt and Heidi rolling up and there’s a full on shot of Matt not wearing a seat belt.
Also the commercial leading into this final episode are cloying. And if Molly and Jeremy expect to be provided a bed over summer break, Christmas break, and whatever break, and for their stuff to be stored at the house, and Mom and Dad pay for their places at school, they aren’t actually moved out.
Btw Person of Interest was really awesome!
So in previously, Matt and Amy bitch at each other.
The farm is desolate and Amy and Matt eat dinner by themselves. Apparently Zach moved out and now since Matt and Amy are alone (screw Jacob, they’re already talking grandkids) Matt pointedly states “I’ll move to Maui and call me when the grandkids arrive.”
Four weeks earlier, Matt is chiding Amy how he’s sooo beat and he doesn’t like the weddings and he clashes constantly with Amy. Matt harps on pumpkin season and he’s so exhausted. Amy notes that she’s told Matt to calm down for years and doesn’t appreciate his bitching.
Matt and Amy check the pumpkins and the harvest looks like crap.
Also the kids are doing headshots with camera equipment. Jeremy notes this is the last summer (as opposed to the various last summers) Amy notes her empty nest and how she misses the dog.
Matt notes how despite not showing any of it, there’s been a massive push to build the funzone. Matt says he’s been working so hard he hasn’t seen the kids.
Molly demands a car from Amy.
Jeremy notes Molly wants a car. Molly wants a small SUV. Jeremy and Molly drive the jeep. This is all about how close they are, nicely staged since in the actual scene they barely speak out loud.
Now there’s a staged scene with some kids who are “testing” the fun zone for the cameras. Matt notes Amy needs to shut her mouth and let him work with the kids because she’s in his way. In fairness Amy is a bit gripy but really neither of them are good with kids who aren’t theirs.
Amy enters the sacred office. Matt notes all the kids hated the fun zone and he’s sure it’s a disaster and he’s too old and is throwing in the towel! Is Matt bipolar. He wants to close down pumpkin season because he’s old.
Now Jeremy and Molly are leaving and even tho Jake is home, Amy notes she and Matt are alone. Jeremy notes his life is now in Santa Barbara despite his incessant whining that he’ll always be an Oregon farmer. Interestingly he finally seems to see the dysfunction.
Matt notes how tough it was seeing *Jeremy* leave. Not all the kids, just Jeremy.
Matt hands off a brand new SUV to Molly. Because all normal families have the new car driven by the salesman to their home. There’s a deathless scene between Molly and Jacob. Molly notes she hopes Jake moves the hell out. There’s a lengthy good bye and Molly diplomatically notes Matt and Amy will have to “rediscover”. Now Zach moves into a house. Matt doesn’t bother to show for this. Zach notes how having kids was keeping Matt and Amy together.
Matt chides Amy for not planning. Matt notes how Amy is a piece of crap who never listens to him. Matt notes how if people aren’t lined up, they’re screwed. Now pumpkin season starts. I note btw that no one seems to be in the pumpkin pavilion. Also the credit card machines are down. Oh the farm has an ATM?
Amy apologizes to the customers. Matt is grabbing some wireless gadget. Matt wants to have the trebuchet fire because his *dream* has been to have it fire off, and of course he insists on having Jake fire it. And of course because it’s a piece of crap, its lucky no one was killed with it. Amy does a tractor tour. To be fair, she’s fairly funny on the tour. Amy notes life isn’t actually a fairy tale.
So Matt does a tour for the cameras as well. The power goes out on the microphones and Matt notes he’s emotionally exhausted. He talks as we see film clips of the family in younger days and Matt notes how maybe he’s done with the farm now that the kids are moved out. Matt tells Amy he is fried from the work. Matt bitches and moans and he notes how careless and stupid it was. There’s lots of bitching and moaning. Now we’re back to the show start of the eerie farm and Matt bitter and angry. Amy makes Matt steak. Amy haybales that she prefers to stay married but things need to change. A rarity, Matt and Amy pray before eating. This is a rehash of the start.
Matt and Amy talk with their mouths full. Amy wants to see her kids and grandkids. Matt notes how small that is and feels he’s stuck on the farm and wants to quit. Matt notes how they are in a dark transitional stage, and how he has nothing in common with Amy. Oddly, Amy is pretty happy with her life. Matt notes how they don’t travel well. Amy notes she’s not going on a trip with Matt if she’s just going to be tested the entire time. Amy notes Matt doesn’t care about anything with the farm and the house and their life. Amy notes Matt’s isn’t happy unless whatever is in front of him is new. Matt notes that things shouldn’t be this hard. Oh Matt, stop being a douche. You want your way. Amy has called it completely – a trip together is Matt judging Amy on everything and Matt isn’t required to make any concessions. I don’t particularly care for either Amy or Matt at this point but Amy does concede a lot to Matt while Matt constantly calls Amy out as a useless incompetent bitch a lot.
