Fans of Welcome to Plathville are calling Olivia Plath a cruel and inconsiderate person for not inviting Kim Plath to the family’s cemetery visit. In a recent episode of the show, the Plath kids, alongside Ethan’s wife Olivia and their father Barry Plath, paid a visit to the graveside of Kim and Barry’s late son, Joshua Plath. However, Kim definitely wasn’t in the picture, and this has angered the series’ viewers, because they believe that Olivia should have invited Kim and Barry.
Welcome to Plathville just presented its wildest season yet, and so far, no member of the show has avoided criticism. Kim has been accused of being manipulative and controlling. and Olivia is believed to be using her husband Ethan for the show. Now, the latest hot topic among the show’s fans is the fact that the Welcome to Plathville children planned a visit to the gravesite of their brother, Joshua. In what one can only describe as a shocking turn of events, Olivia, who tagged along with the siblings, tried inviting Barry to join them. However, she didn’t extend an invite to Joshua’s mother Kim, whom fans are blaming for all of the family drama.
For some fans, Olivia’s decision to exclude Kim goes far beyond an error in judgment, and extends to cruelty, because Kim is also a part of the family. Despite the fact that Kim’s recent behavior has been anything but admirable, there seems to be a general opinion that she was still Joshua’s mother. Viewers believe that she should have been invited, alongside her husband Barry, who appears to be lonely. A Redditor, u/Sassenacharine, feels that Olivia should have just opted out of joining the family, and let them decide who would go on the visit with them. The Reddit user said, “I totally get Olivia. I was the same way with my father for a long time. THAT SAID, she should have bowed the F out on visiting the gravesite. Don’t even go. Let the fam do their thing.”
Many Welcome to Plathville fans believe that Olivia should have either stayed at home or put up with Kim, rather than not inviting her. Although Olivia has received numerous disses from a large number of people, some fans are still standing behind her. Apparently, there seems to be a misunderstanding, and some people believe that Olivia was shown in a bad light because of how the production team decided to portray her. To some, the producers made it seem like Olivia intentionally didn’t want Kim to join the rest of the family, just for the sake of drama. In the words of Redditor u/The-Camping-Angler, ” I honestly didn’t care. I’m sure the producers set this up for the dramatic effect.”
In a Q&A on her Instagram page, Welcome To Plathville star Olivia stated that there was something that happened on the show that hasn’t been aired, which she already regrets. It seems like this might be the situation she was referring to. If that’s the case, Olivia is remorseful, and she may have apologized to Kim. Fans are hoping that the next few episodes of the show give a more in-depth explanation of all that occurred behind the scenes.
