'Welcome To Plathville' Episode 2: Kim finds the family's traditions slipping away as Olivia's 'free spirit' spreads through the household
Kim and Barry Plath have always tried to raise their children with values by keeping them away from everything modern. However, all this has changed, thanks to the new thoughts presented by Olivia
The Plath family is having a hard time sticking to their old traditions ever since Ethan got married to Olivia. Looking at the preview for the next episode, it doesn't look like things are getting any better.
The Plath family has always lived on their 55-acre farmland and the nearest town for them is 10 miles away. Despite this, the family enjoys the time they spend on their farmland and take pride in the traditions and lifestyle they follow.
However, Olivia's lifestyle has been different. She is a free-spirited person who loves to try new things in life. While Ethan is loving this aspect of his wife, his mother Kim, on the other hand, has some opposing thoughts about it.
Kim and Olivia have never come to an understanding about how the children should be raised or the lifestyle one should live and it is slowly taking a toll on the family.
Looking at Ethan having a taste of freedom, Olivia encourages Ethan's siblings to try something new as well. Thanks to Olivia, Moriah gets a chance to taste cotton candy for the first time and instantly falls in love with it.
The Plath children have never had sugar so for Moriah, it was a treasure that she had chanced upon, However, the biggest change that is about to strike the Plath family is Micah's modeling career.
Olivia pushes Micah to try his hand at modeling and when he decides to go ahead with it, he seems to love it. Meanwhile, Ethan tries out different things and visits a gym for the first time.
However, the biggest challenge for him was to drink alcohol in front of his parents. Kim has always refused to allow her family members to drink and looking at Ethan drink came as a big shocker for her.
The differences that have been brought in by Olivia have made Kim question where her children were headed as she asks Olivia to not interfere with her parenting.
