It was all joy for the cast of Sister Wives when Maddie returned home for her baby shower, but as is always the case on this series, nothing ever goes to plan.
When Sister Wives Season 9 Episode 8 got underway, it was all about Mariah and her relationship with Audrey. If you watch Sister Wives online, you will know that Meri has never had the best relationship with her daughter.
Seriously, it seemed like hell was going to freeze over before they ever got on good terms again.
But here we are, and Meri is trying to plan a family dinner to introduce Audrey to the wild family formally. Surprisingly, Audrey got along with EVERYONE.
If you thought Kody would be complaining about the things his family has faced over the years, you were sadly mistaken. Instead, Kody was open and honest with Audrey, and she respected that.
Caleb and Maddie were also at the event, and it allowed them to show off the baby bump. The size of the bump was the topic of the conversation, and many wondered whether she had more than one child.
Madison was letting the comments get to her, and she told them to stop talking smack, or she would have to make them pay for it.
Elsewhere, we learned the sad news that Ysabel's scoliosis was causing her trouble. At the time of the diagnosis, she was told to wear a night brace to try and reduce the issues with her spine.
This was not good for Ysabel because she found it uncomfortable, but Christine found a program that had success with helping to reduce the issues.
While Christine and Kody had to agree about the best course of action for their daughter, it was clear they were still having problems int their marriage.
As such, they continued to go to therapy on a regular basis. Then there were the issues between Kody and Meri. Meri still wanted to buy the bed and breakfast.
In Kody's defense, he felt like Meri would turn to the family for financial help if anything went wrong with the venture. He wanted to know that Meri could sustain it all on her own.
At therapy, the pair reached an agreement, and Kody said he would try to offer as much support as he could to her, but he stopped short of saying he would like to get intimate with her.
At Ysabel's appointment, we learned that the doctor was ready to follow through with surgery and that meant she did not need to wear the brace anymore.
However, she had to build up muscle memory because she was going to be in a tough position after it with physiotherapy.
All of this resulted in Kody and Christine getting closer together, and that made them happy. It's been a long time coming, but they are finally back together and showing a united front.
