‘Sister Wives’ Fans React to TLC’s One Week Delay in Part Three of Tell-All: ‘What Were They Thinking?’

Sister Wives fans have reacted to TLC’s decision to delay the third part of the season-ender “Tell-All.” The episode, which many fans believed would air on Feb. 13, was pushed back one week. This decision caused ire in the show’s community group on Reddit. They couldn’t believe the decision to delay the episode by one week, presumably due to coverage of the Super Bowl.

The conclusion of season 16 will further delve into the issues which have plagued the Brown family. These include communication, family issues, and marital problems.

Thus far, fans have learned that Meri and Kody do not share intimacy in their marriage, and according to Kody, he had no plans for any romantic relationship with his first wife ever again.

Janelle reportedly plans to stay in her polygamist marriage. However, Kody admitted that they “partner” well, but he’s not in love with Janelle. “We’re good friends,” he admitted.

Christine showed the depth of her pain regarding her decision to leave Kody after 25 years of spiritual marriage and six children. She cried that “it’s been so hard for so long” as Kody watched, claiming he didn’t realize how deep her sadness went.

“Tell-all” host Sukanyan Krishnan claimed fourth wife Robyn had the only fully functioning marriage with the Brown family patriarch. Robyn claimed she’d become an “easy target” for the rest of the family and broke down on camera when discussing how the others perceive her.

In a Reddit post, fans shared their frustration with the delay in the third installment of the season finale.

“Seriously, were you that worried about the decline in viewership, TLC? Do you even know your audience?” one fan wrote. “Those of us that do want to watch both would absolutely find a way. What were they thinking?”

“This does seem strange nowadays. Before streaming, it might have meant a fight over the TV in the bad old days. But now either people have more than one TV, or they have either TLC Go or discovery+.” penned a second viewer.

“Ugh. Next Sunday, best be a spicy one to make us wait this long,” claimed a third Reddit user.

“It’s a guilty pleasure best viewed out of the range of kids due to all the cursing from the viewers,” remarked a fourth fan.

What can fans expect from the final ‘Tell-All’ Episode of ‘Sister Wives’ episode 16?

The episode description for the final episode of the season suggests even more shocking revelations for the beleaguered Brown family.

It reads, “In this final episode of one-on-one interviews, Kody and Christine share shocking news that will change the family dynamic forever as the other wives weigh in on how it affects their future.”

The episode description does not elaborate further on what these revelations could be. However, the series will likely reveal that Christine Brown has moved to Utah full-time to be closer to her extended family, further distancing herself from Kody and his three remaining wives.

Sister Wives airs Sundays at 10 p.m. EST on TLC.
