Thursday's episode was jam-packed with entertaining and heartwarming footage of the Bates' Thanksgiving celebration. Josie and Kelton sit down with Gil and Kelly to discuss their relationship, and they successfully receive approval to begin a courtship. (Kelton says he still plans to wait until after New Year's.)

  7. This is so far behind. There must be cool things going on in the family that could be reported on. Not having to go all the way back to thanksgiving.

  9. Anon 6:08 am: This blog helps people keep up with what is on the TV show, which is wonderful! I live in Canada and cannot get access to UP TV. So even tho it's behind, I'm happy to get whatever I can

  11. I found it a bit odd and disrespectful that Gil's children don't refer to his brother and sister as 'uncle' or 'aunt'. They refer to them by their first names only. It's the same thing with their grandparents..they don't use grandpa or grandma or some derivative of that title.
    Why?

    1. Some families prefer that.

    2. Being an aunt is so great. Why would any aunt not prefer to be called that?

    3. Some of that is southern, some family preference.
