  1. Okay, look at the pic where the Bates family watches the wedding. Do you see the girl in the back with the black shirt? I've been seeing her in lots of episodes. Do you know who she is? Once the camera even zoomed in on her face. I think we should have an explanation about who she is. And is Carlin wearing a tank top in that one picture?

    4. Why does it matter if she's wearing a tank top? She's still dressed modestly.

    1. I should hope she wouldn't be attracted to her own brother, cuz that would be kinda weird.

  3. I think that girl is a friend of the Bates girls, especially Katie, Josie, Carlin and Tori. Am I right?

    1. If that girl is just a friend, why would she go to a family wedding?

  4. I noticed that girl too. I Think she was a friend of Nathan or Trace who visited before from New York.I think I saw her in the episode of 20th Bates.

  6. Why not just call her a "sister," rather than "adopted sister"?

    1. I agree, it's unnecessary and offensive to label her the "adopted sister". It's irrelevant. She is Kelly's sister, whether blood related or otherwise. Very insensitive.

  8. Honk if you like tank tops in the summer heat!

  9. So many people forget what women had to wear in colonial times. Even in the summer. I live down in Texas and have survived every summer wearing sleeves and a modest skirt. Doesn't the Bible say that women should dress modestly?

    1. It does and that is exactly how Carlin is dressed.

  10. Carlin wasn't dressed immodestly. Her dress was long enough she had a shirt underneath and sure her dresses sleeves where not full but they where thick they just were rolled up cause she had her arms up.
