TLC’s Welcome to Plathville season 4 has been bringing the heat, and there have been several controversial moments on the show that stand out to viewers. Past seasons have dealt with Ethan and Olivia Plath’s marital issues, and how Ethan’s parents are partially to blame for them. It also showed Ethan being separated from his younger siblings for months, which remains one of the most heartbreaking parts of the show.
Welcome to Plathville follows Kim and Barry Plath as well as their nine children, as they learn to adapt to the real world after being isolated from it for most of their lives. It shows the stark contrast between the siblings, even though they were raised the same way, as Lydia and Moriah Plath could not be more different from one another. While there have been sweet moments on the show, like Moriah and Micah Plath journeying out to LA together and Olivia helping Ethan fix up old cars, there have also been scenes that were hard to watch.
Welcome to Plathville season 4 is vastly different from previous seasons, as matriarch Kim Plath has loosened the strict rules she had for her kids and is changing her values. She decided she wanted to leave her husband and run a dance studio, which was unexpected news to viewers. The Plath family seems more fractured than ever, and fans are eager to see if any problems get resolved by the end of the season.
