While most of the Plath kids have grown up, with Ethan married, Moriah and Micah moving out and Lydia and Isaac now getting jobs, which keeps them out of the house for most of the day. However, there is still Amber, Cassia and Mercy, who are rather younger and certainly need their parents around. While Kim has been staying separately, it looks like she's moved back into the Plath family house, for the sake of the girls. Kim made it clear that although she and Barry are now living under the same roof, it did not change the status of their relationship. She explained that Barry gave her the master bedroom, while he took another bedroom in the home.

As Kim helped Cassia and Mercy move into a different room, she spoke to them about what was happening, in order to ensure that they understood none of this was their fault. The kids expressed that they were sad over what was happening, as Kim spoke about how she now wanted her kids to understand that working towards a healthy and happy marriage is important, which was certainly a far cry from her previous belief that marriage was absolute.

However, during the course of the conversation, Kim accidentally let it slip that she and Barry were getting a divorce, which Cassia caught on to quickly and asked her mother about it. Kim noted in her confessionals that she was navigating through a new territory herself and while they did plan on telling the girls, she accidentally let the word 'divorce' slip. The girls expressed that Kim hadn't spoken about it before, with Mercy noting that she wants "mom to be happy" but also wanted "mom and dad to be together." Kim reassured the girls that even though her relationship with Barry is not the same, they would continue to be friends and co-parent the girls together.
