 Sister Wives Season 18 Episode 6 Recap

A glance into the Brown family’s holiday festivities, which were anything but happy for some members of the family, opens the episode. Most of the emotional upheaval appears to be focused on Robyn, The Curled One. The fact that Kody, Robyn, and Meri decided to “celebrate” apart from Christine, Janelle, and their kids—whom Kody is currently shunning—indicates that the holidays have not brought them any joy.

Unexpectedly, Christine and Janelle choose to get together for some post-Christmas happiness with the rejected Kody offspring—without Kody and Robyn accompanying them. The family’s divisions and the strained bonds that have grown through time are revealed by this get-together.

We watch as the episode goes on how Christine and Janelle’s relationship has been strengthening ever since Christine decided to break up with Kody. Whereas previously their encounters required Robyn’s clearance, bleach-soaked plastic suits, and COVID tests, their friendship blooms without any of those requirements. Hinting at the prospect of a polygamous future, Christine even advises that Janelle pick up her life and move to Utah to live next door.

But it soon becomes clear that Kody’s bad parenting is a persistent problem. Kody avoided spending Christmas with Janelle’s sons and, even more strangely, he skipped Savannah, who has no connection to the ongoing conflict. Savannah is hurt and incensed over this negligence, and Christine isn’t shy about showing how much she despises Kody’s parenting.

In contrast, Kody portrays himself as the victim in this story, alleging that Janelle and Christine are plotting against him and turning even his own kids against him. He argues that his children can always get in touch with him to justify his lack of communication with them. Christine and Janelle become irate and frustrated because they thought their father and husband would do better.

The visit from Robyn to Meri to talk about their sad Christmas sets off a dramatic shift in the episode. Due to COVID fears, they have a chilly talk outside during which Robyn laments not being able to influence the events of the holidays and holds Kody responsible for the family’s shattered celebrations. Despite feeling neglected herself, Meri pays attention to Robyn’s emotional disclosure.

As this is going on, Kody discusses his viewpoint on his relationship with Meri, characterizing it as remote and insignificant. Even when it appears like Christine and Kody’s love cannot be restored, Robyn’s desperation to restore the family’s damaged relationships causes tension to grow between her and Meri.

The historical tracking of Kody’s time with each woman is also revealed in this episode, emphasizing the differences in his level of devotion and attention. Robyn formerly had to live as a nun’s wife, which left her deeply damaged on an emotional level. But according to Christine, Robyn always knew that Kody treated her better than anybody else, and this unfairness has long existed in their relationship.

The topic of polygamy is brought up again in Janelle’s apartment, and she is amenable to the notion as long as she is spared from having to acquiesce to Robyn’s demands. She won’t give Robyn better treatment in an attempt to regain Kody’s affection.

Christine considers the lack of trust that has grown as a result of previous betrayals within the family. She feels that Meri’s abuse at the hands of Kody is a reflection of what would have happened to her had she stayed with him.

In the last scene of the episode, Christine, enjoying her newfound independence, visits her daughters to organize her 50th birthday celebration. Meri, in the meantime, shocks everyone by declaring that she’s prepared to leave Polygville and make changes. Although she is well aware that Kody and most of the family won’t be upset about her leaving, she is moving to her bed and breakfast in Southern Utah.

Christine tells Kody how nasty and mean he has been to Meri throughout the years, and she is frustrated. She admits that if she hadn’t made the brave decision to leave him, she would have met a similar end. We get a peek into the family’s problems, broken connections, and the potential for future changes in this poignant and insightful episode of Sister Wives.


We have now completed our examination of Sister Wives Season 18 Episode 6, which has taken us through the highs and lows of the Brown family’s polygamous lifestyle. This episode, “The Understatement Of The Year,” exposed the emotional cost of negligent parenting, the disintegration of the family, and the likelihood of big changes to come.

Even if the drama in the Browns’ lives keeps us interested, we must bear in mind that their polygamous lifestyle presents special difficulties. On the other hand, people like L Brands founder Les Wexner serve as a reminder of the wide range of experiences and narratives that exist outside of the reality TV industry.
