Hmm more bonus scenes. Oh hey, weird thought. Has anyone noticed that Matt has almost totally given up on wearing the signature red shirts? I wish Audrey would take that hint. Amy’s friends asking for “the down and dirty” really made me wish Amy would just be all “so first he ate me out…”
Oh, there’s gonna be some real talk on birthing! I so love how Auj and Jer are sorta irked at how they aren’t the experts and this is a lengthy talk about placentas and Jer is all “I’m grossed out”. Oh Jer,, wait till you see it! Maybe try an episode of Call the Midwife first, they are delightfully graphic (awesome show btw). In the scenes with Dale and Veronica’s kids, they don’t seem that into the kids. Also in this scene, I think Jer’s hidden bottle on the table is beer.
Oh hey, if Jer and Auj are moving to Portland, I trust there is an expectation that they WILL be loudly and proudly committing to joining the blessed church of John Mark Comer? I mean, there’s really no excuse if they live in Portland now. Revisiting Jer and Auj snobbing their way thru houses reminds me yet again how neither of these two have jobs.
Hmm Auj muses to Jer about having a baby shower in their new house in a “flashback” that wasn’t in the prior episode. Auj, I know you’re a Roloff now and that synonymous with having no manners, but you shoudlnt be planning your own shower.
Amy meets her BFF Lisa at a restaurant. Lisa is still “OMG! CHRIS! Six months! WHEN ARE YOU SHACKING UP!” Amy thinks she might have scared off Chris with her intent to marry. Lisa mentions how Amy needs to not continue mixing her finances with Matt. Amy wants her own income, and we’re not mentioning the show income at all. Amy wants to open a restaurant and Lisa wants to work with Amy on this as a partner! Ugh, if I have learned nothing from reading Anthony Bourdain’s books and watching Anthony Bourdain, its that restaurants are a shitty investment,
In Bend, Jer pours tea for Auj. He haybales how he has the reins for the decision on moving. He of course does what Auj wants, as Auj previously articulated that she wants to be closer to family. Jer needs to cut his hair or learn how to wash it or comb it.
Matt and Amy meet in the office to discuss the family dinner. Matt wants to use the family dinner to discuss various business projects. He haybales how he wants the farm to be too enticing to them to make them stay at the farm. Amy wanted a more casual meeting. Matt is like “lets check out the powerpoints” and Amy is like “why are we not asking the kids about how they are and what they are doing?” Amy is frustrated and Amy, little tip? Let Matt have his family dinner where he has an agenda and have your own family dinner where you check up on them.
Zach wanders in with bad news. Sully has liver cancer and stomach cancer. Amy even mentions that it’s Tory’s first baby. It’s sad.
Sully is buried. Amy remarks how sad it is. Tory is all “he’s my best friend” and cries. There’s a lengthy homage to Sully. Zach worries that this is stressing Tory out and he hopes she’ll cry and release emotions. Wow, Tory hugging Zach and crying was powerful.
Matt and Caryn talk about Sully. Matt is sad, there’s a moment, and Caryn puts it back on the work thing.
At Tory’s house, there’s flowers from the funeral and wake. Tory makes her mom dinner and Zach mentions Sully and kills the mood. Tory and Zach both note that the house is empty and there’s more photos of Sully than anyone else at the house. Everyone reminisces about Sully.
Wait, now Lisa and Amy are opening a restaurant. They’ve hired a consultant! God this sounds dumb. They ignore the consultant knocking. There’s an actual cat on the table for the consultant to see. The tripod for the presentation collapses. Amy wants a casual relaxed quaint place. The consultant is like “Bitch please, restaurants are loser businesses!” and is pretty realistic, in my opinion. Amy and Lisa reconsider how they are gonna do a restaurant.
Oh look, its Jer and Auj in another different car. They have how many now? The bmw, the jeep, the suv from last week, this week’s four door thingy. Jer and Auj pretend to care about Sully. Then they wander about. Jer muses about moving back and how different it is. Matt muses on how he moved his pregnant wife around a lot. Jeremy drones on how complicated it is.
Zach wanders into Amy’s kitchen for food. He mentions the DAS thing. Amy notes how its awkward even tho it’s a great opportunity. Zach drops the “its prolly a dwarf” bomb.
So, Zach is upset but is also noting how the pictures look average sized. Zach notes he’s trying to not react or be weird with Tory. Amy is all “don’t worry, but pay attention to Tory”. Zach recalls how being physically different was awkward and at times was unpleasant. Amy tries to buck him up but is realistic.
Now they’re doing a DAS photoshoot. Zach greets the little people family. The photo shoot goes well. Zach is made to hold Emma the dwarf baby. Caryn takes pictures. Zach asks Andrew the model about having an LP child. Andrew is a really short guy dwarf. Emma seems to have a lot of health issues. For the record I find it odd that they can’t know definitively.
There’s a family dinner, aka just the twins and wives. No mention of Molly and Jake. There’s some discussion of the dwarf diagnosis. Tory says it could be a dwarf and Audrey smiles at the news. Oh jeez. Zach and Tory are still excited. Oh hey for the first time, we see Jeremy pray.
Jer and Auj are moving to Portland and house hunting. They’re looking in Rock Creek. Tory notes that cousins will be down the street. Amy wants dinners to be a tradition. She also notes how a baby is a miracle. Poor Tory looks a lil puffy. I do note that this meal didn’t involve any PowerPoint displays. Interesting how Amy won that battle off screen.
I know some people will mention in relation to Sully dying that the "Babymoon" referenced was the Hawaiian trip that clearly wont be mention on the show and how Tory was a monster for not seeing the dog's illness, so I welcome all commentary from experts on what was discernably wrong with the dog in prior episodes.
I also note that "We aint got no place to live" Jer and Auj went on that babymoon to Hawaii as well, despite you know, being pregnant and having NO PLACE to raise the child that isn't coming from their parents.
