We start this week’s episode of The Kardashians by knowing that we have all been duped. What we saw in surprising evening premiere last week was actually filmed at end in the Season 2 footage, as Khloé is still not ready to discuss Tristan Thompson’s Latest Betrayal. So now we’re going back to February, right when Kylie gave birth to her son and Kendall and Kim were getting ready to attend Milan Fashion Week.
Before setting off for Italy aboard Kim’s Earth-destroying private jet, Kendall takes her prettiest sister, Khloé, for a brain scan to diagnose the apparent depression Tristan may have gotten her into. . Meanwhile, Kourtney plans her to be mocked heavily and especially ugly Wedding sponsored by Dolce and Gabbana for Travis Barker and the two lay in bed for a few minutes.
And that’s really about it. Let’s hope and pray that this is just an extra episode leading to more interesting plot points and not a sign of the rest of the season.
Kyndall: I feel like I spent most of our final recap defame the Kardashians about — as far as we can tell — repeatedly abandoning therapy in the midst of a crisis. And this week’s episode demonstrated the extent to which this family won’t go to a licensed psychologist when Kendall advises Khloé to get a brain scan so she can visualize her trauma. How is this supposed to help Khloé exactly??
Coleman: And all because Khloé took an online test home for the first time letting her know that she wasn’t resilient because she couldn’t remember a sequence of six numbers without problems. The episode went well for me until Khloé, Kendall, and Kendall’s untrained doberman rushed into the strip mall parking lot and they cut Khloé into saying in the confessional, “Today That’s the day I got a brain scan!” Who are these people?
Kyndall: LAUGH. This show is only about how oddly rich people are at this point. Speaking of which, I’m a little freaked out about Kendall selling this very gritty brain scan to Khloé as if she were reading the palm of her hand or something. What’s “cool” about watching your brain get damaged by men who hurt you time and time again and are scrutinized on the internet?
Coleman: One of this family’s favorite things is that there are outside forces that they have to pay for—again, Not licensed therapists — confirm that they suffered while the camera was on. I haven’t heard the word “injury” many times in a row since Jamie Lee Curtis super cut.
But I really fell in love with Khloé getting out of her car and screaming, “I’m resilient! I am strong! I am strong! I have a head injury! After reminding us, she went through the windshield in a car accident in 18. I will definitely cut that clip to use as a Twitter response during periods of depression.
Kyndall: Khloé made the best out of an incredibly awkward and unhelpful scenario. All in all, I’m more than Kendall’s bland health journey and her “beginning” self-care hobby. Should I really believe she didn’t take care of her body like a lifelong millionaire with the best healthcare in the country?
Also, the only hypocrite I want to see on my TV screen is Shannon Beador from Real Housewives of Orange County. If you don’t have a funny Eastern medicine doctor stabbing you in the back with a needle, I don’t want to see it!
Coleman: Agree, and Kendall can’t put Nine lemons in a bowl of seeds. I’m more interested in Kendall’s backstory about having to cover her newly dyed red hair, which is really What do I come to these women for? The first two episodes were largely failures. So by the time we switched to Kendall dressed as Unabomber while boarding Kim’s private jet to protect her precious hair from the paparazzi, I was ready to start screaming. Finally, some charm! Some stupid!
Kyndall: My favorite part of this journey to Milan was hearing Kim say “Prada you” to Kendall on the phone and then explaining to the camera that that’s what people say on the internet. (I’ve never seen this!) I was also hoping that we would make it to Pete Davidson’s second round, surprising Kim with some Dib on her flight, but no! However, we hear about him briefly during a bad conversation between Kim and Khloé about trust issues.
Coleman: Yes, where Khloé did her best Irma Vep catsuit. That scene is also where we get another small hit from Khloé, which is that Tristan proposed to her the year before, in the interval between his first cheating scandal and his latest. that. She refused, realizing her lack of enthusiasm to tell her family was a red flag that they shouldn’t get married, and Kim responded, “God, if someone proposes, I just say yes. !” Like, we know. That’s why you’ve been married three times.
But I hearing so much about Pete; I want understand I’m a 6 foot 9, 3 foot seducer myself. In flesh and blood! I started to worry that, after the breakup, Kim forced him out of the show. Maybe they’re just focusing on his final on-camera intro, but this whole season so far seems to be stretching its legs. I jolted awake when Kris mentioned the Blac Chyna lawsuit, only to have them interrupt Kris and Kylie’s most sleepy conversation about the baby’s name. Are these women in the race, Kyndall?
Kyndall: I definitely think so. None of them are working to entertain us like they were. We used to have Khloé and Kourtney act silly and bully Kim. There are complicated jokes. There’s Scott Disick, who hasn’t shown up yet. I think they overemphasize the difference between “reality show” and “documentary”. And now we have to rely on the weirdest quotes and wacky medical appointments to get us through, which can certainly be fun at times. But we need more agility!
Coleman: Right! This is a family that makes their name synonymous with “hijinks”. But somehow, more money made them less happy. Kim should still throw the phone over the balcony at the ski chalets; she can replace them in seconds right now.
Still, I think we might end up having some fun next week, when we head to Milan for Fashion Week and watch Kris take a tonic to ease her hip pain. I’m ready to see Kim striding through Italy in the olive green leather number set she’s trying on, looking like the damn Mucinex monster.
Kyndall: I unfortunately like an injured Kris Jenner, whether it was when she broke her toe when her daughters pushed her into the swimming pool on Catch up or her famous swollen lips. So I’m happy to see how things are going, knowing that she is now alive and well.
This week looks to be one of those awkward transitions you’ve seen Real housewives before a big event. Hopefully next week won’t be as sleepy and Kendall won’t drag anyone to the neurologist. But let’s get into our superlatives, shall we?
Most Comparative Siblings
The most negative body moment: This week’s title goes to the world’s worst health professional, Kendall Jenner. Early in the episode, Kim tells Khloé that Kendall and Kylie are worried about how thin she is, which could be the first time in the series where women launch the phrase “anorexia” as a word. praise. However, in the next scene, Kendall greets Khloé by shouting “You’re so skinny!” Khloé replied cheerfully, “You’re too skinny!” We love taking concerns about possible eating disorders!
The most prepped moment for the camera: Who would be surprised that this precious award went to Kourtney Kardashian, who gathered her assistant and stylist on the plush rug in her bedroom to brainstorm wedding dress ideas according to the mood. Of course, talking about her Virgin Mary-inspired dress will eventually lead to her contributing to Dolce & Gabbana’s perfection. But first, she must create a safe space for her minions to tell the camera that all of her PDAs and Travis are Overwhelme real!
Strongest sister of the week: Our top prize goes to Kendall Jenner, who not only gave us a hint of goofiness with the hair-dying movie, but was also responsible for dragging Khloé to scan her brain. She’s showing up, she’s working, she’s maneuvering. This is the kind of fire we want to see. Type us do not is Pyro, a dog that shouldn’t bark and run around the doctor’s office.
