  1. Alyssa was the same Bates who didn't know compass directions. Yeah, not impressed with her. At all. And I think Brooklyn just has a harsh-looking face. It's something about her eyebrows and eyes. I think she takes after Chad, but on a little girl her age, it just doesn't look right somehow. Sort of like how Davia Waller was born looking like an old lady 😉

    Josiah and Lauren: He Has To Marry Somebody

    Guess he takes after his mom?

    Josiah and Lauren: He Has To Marry Somebody

    I think they lack the chemistry some of the other couples seemed to ooze (see Jeremy and Jinger). That weirdly distant, hands-off approach they seem to take when someone is going through something emotional isn't limited to Josiah, though. Jessa had the same response when Jill was crying right next to her in that special they did right after Josh-gate. It makes me think that this family never learned how to be warm to each other in a spontaneous, natural, safe way after the molestations happened because their idiot parents were so busy trying to keep their "safeguards" in place at all costs (sidehugs only, anyone?) in order to prevent such a thing from happening again. Add into that the fact that the offspring are emotionally stilted from the outset in any case because of their cult upbringing, and basically you have no "hey, she's upset, I should comfort her" instincts.

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    Considering that Jill herself lacks imagination and also considering who she is married to, methinks the bar is set pretty low and she takes what she can get. #besthubbyever #nootherchoice
  5. I was waiting for it. In their most recent Instagram posts, she totally looks pregnant. I think she might even be wearing a maternity top in one.

    S09.E01: Love Is In The Air

    They didn't really specify. John only said that their standards were different from his other siblings because they were more mature (since they were also about 10 years older than most of the others were when they started courting). He also reiterated that it was up to each couple to set their own standards. He and Abbie made a detailed list of the physical lines they did not want to cross (definitely no kissing until marriage, according to them), but there were things they were fine with, like his putting his arm around her and hugging.

    JD and Abbie: Captured Before the Rapture

    The proposal was new, wasn't it? In any case, @BitterApple, you can watch it over on watchseries.

    S09.E01: Love Is In The Air

    Aww, I can't help but like John. He's sweet, genuine, well spoken (for a Duggar especially), and his dorkiness is endearing. He and Abbie seem really well matched.

    Hell if I know! I could barely make out what they were saying.

    More mindless yaying from Jill and a "beep beep" (?) from a constipated-looking Derick while they're at a Razorbacks game:

    You gotta wonder these things since Jill specified it was a "women's conference thing" and not just a women's conference :D

    The Lonely Js Club: Jana, Jedidiah, Jeremiah and Jason

    Oh, Jana. Didn't your parents ever teach you that lying is a sin? Oh, wait . . .

    Wasn't there also talk of JB refusing to look directly at waitresses when ordering in restaurants because it was ungodly or some shit? That would be along the same lines, sounds like.

    Michelle and JimBob aka J'Chelle and Boob

    Wow, Michelle likens Mary to a "single mom" while JB was growing up because JB's dad lacked a "spiritual focus."
