Ethan and Micah Plath are Welcome to Plathville fan favorites, and many viewers are hoping for a spin-off centered on the two brothers. Despite growing up in the same isolated household, they are complete opposites in many ways. On the show, Micah’s outgoing nature and Ethan’s sweet naiveté complement each other well. This makes fans want to see more of their adventures together.
Welcome to Plathville centers around the unconventional Plath family, including parents Kim and Barry Plath, along with their nine children. After raising them on a large farm in Georgia, away from civilization, the two brothers have learned a lot in a couple of years, since being exposed to the outside world. They have all handled it differently, with Ethan reverting back to his old habits and comfort zone, while Micah and Moriah Plath have gone in a completely different direction. They celebrated their freedom by doing everything they could not as kids, like wearing racy outfits and pursuing careers that their parents did not initially approve of.
Ethan and Micah could not be more different in many ways, but their “odd couple” dynamic has been one of the highlights of Welcome to Plathville. Ethan has been having a hard time on the show, as his marriage to Olivia Plath has been on the rocks, with the pair constantly fighting and coming close to divorce. Whenever the brothers share the screen, they bring out a goofier side of one another, despite all of the drama of each season.
In an earlier Welcome to Plathville season, Olivia dragged Ethan out to California for a work trip, and fans loved watching Ethan try everything for the first time. He learned about couples massages and risqué drink names, and was introduced to an brand-new way of life in a big city. Since Micah is living in Los Angeles now, to pursue his modeling career, fans would love to see Ethan go back for a spin-off show. If the strip club episode of Welcome to Plathville season 4 taught viewers anything, it is that Ethan and Micah out on the town is a great combination, leading to some hilarious moments.
Since Micah has found it easier to adjust to urban life than Ethan, it would be interesting to see the brothers go on adventures together, as Micah could push Ethan outside of his comfort zone. Ethan could also return the favor by encouraging Micah to try less glamorous work than modeling, like finding and fixing up old cars. Ethan seems happiest when he is able to goof off with his younger brother, and Welcome to Plathville fans want to see more of that carefree side of him, which they remember from earlier seasons.
